Happy FRIDAY!!!!

Happy Friday everyone!!

I have a long time theory that Friday is the best day of the week!
Friday, for those of you still working a “normal job,” is the day of the week to wrap things up.

People are more relaxed today. You might have time to read or forward some funny emails, there’s chatter in the office about weekend plans and maybe even a bit of “hey! drinks tonight with everyone…are you in?”

People are ready for the weekend. Ready to spend time with family, the kids, work on the house, get outside, sleep in a little, exercise, go to a movie, go on a date, so on and so on.

Friday is even fantastic for those AAA personalities… sending emails, finishing up by noon, sneaking on to Facebook, updating friends, see what’s going on and busily making productive and fun weekend plans. (They never slow down! Lol)

No matter which of these you do on a Friday we all have one thing in common.
It marks the end of a busy work week! 

Enjoy today! Reflect on this week!

Do a few things a little different this Friday.

It’s the first Friday of spring.
A season of renewal, rebirth, growth. Nature does it normally and right on time, for itself, every year. Nature recreates itself, creates new growth, changes its form. If you really think about it, makes changes and adapts better to its environment than the year before. (Like for instance a tree)

What will you do with your first Friday of spring???

Spend time with important people in your life?
Clean out that closet or garage that’s been sitting there cluttered forever?
Start something for YOU?

Just a few things to get the old gray matter sloshing around up there in your brain but don’t think too hard today!

Whatever you do, create new space, new thoughts, new room for something bigger and better to come in to your life.

So get out there!

Just do it!

It doesn’t have to be perfect or right… But it’s gotta be something that puts a smile on your face, keeps your spirit up and keeps ya moving forward!

Good luck!

Have an amazing Friday!!!

Adult Adventure – "A Good Day" – Reflection & Gratitude

We posted a wonderful video clip yesterday – It brings tears to my eyes!

Tears of Joy, Love & Gratitude! I’m posting it again here:

“A Good Day” with Brother David Steindl-Rast, Benedictine Monk
Please take the time to view it…. once, twice….. daily perhaps.

Words I chose to reflect on from the clip: (Mom)

Today is a Gift to me!

I need to be – opening my eyes to see…

  • the colors
  • the sky
  • the weather
  • the faces… their stories.

I need to be – Opening my heart and “drink”….

the life-giving water and the gifts around me – civilization gifts!

I need to be – Opening my heart to all these blessings…

and to bring MY Blessings to others…

  • My Eyes…..
  • My Smile…..
  • My Touch…..
  • My Presence…..

I need to – let My Gratefulness overflow into Blessings all around me….

You may know or recall – I experienced a near death, “Widow Maker” heart attack April 21, 2008 in the limousine after the funeral mass of my dear mother and friend. It’s approaching 5 years now and each and every day…

I AM…. grateful for my “Gift!” —- Of another day!

Yesterday, discovering that video clip, I decided to explore our property and photograph some proof of the “emerging spring” here in Pennsylvania! I do hope you enjoy them!

Forsythias starting their regrowth for Spring!

Yellow crocuses with Star of Bethlehem plants peeking out!

Daffodils start to emerge!

Day Lilies breaking free!

Hyacinths springing out!
Magnolia buds reaching to the Heavens from Nikki’s House!

Have “A Good Day!” Appreciate and Share Your Blessings… Today!
