Peace and Love


I was honouring the peace in my life as I bathed. A spiritual
place where my best thoughts are often born. Maybe it's
the place where I hear what Oprah calls, ``gods whispers!!``

 Christmas really is the season to love those who
need it most! Those who may have made a bad
choice along the way! Those less fortunate too!
 I have so many blessings in my daily life!  My 
needs are met plus more! So many don't have 
that luxury!
These two are so easy to love and give so much!!

 Some people make it difficult to love
  them....those are the ones who truly
need it most!
I was so worried about raising a child that
was privileged and felt entitled. With several
twists and turns in my life I was fortunate
that didn't happen. Cupcakes seen both
affluent and lean times! A great lesson for 
all children!
 It's not just that she gives generously.... which can
be difficult when you're an only child. She actually
sees those in need. Many people walk by oblivious.
Thankfully not my girl.    
Cupcake has taught me so much. I must admit
over the years I've sometimes been judgemental
of those making bad choices. Let's face it
none of us are immune from making a
bad choice or two. Some are just worse
than others!!
Even though our city is extremely multi cultural there are Christmas lights everywhere!

My daughter knows there is always
  a story behind each person who 
takes a wrong path!
It doesn't stop her from offering a  lonely guy
sitting by the pharmacy door a few pieces
of her pizza! Or buying him a coffee!

So many people need a bit of a hand up!
  Or maybe just a bit of acknowledgement!
 Whether it be pride of whatever they won't 
ask for help.
So many fun lights in our city!! Photo Credit Cupcake
Do you know anyone who may need a 
little love and encouragement to get 
through the holiday season?

I feel so grateful for the harmony and peace
in my life. I wish all those less fortunate,
those feeling lonely, or without, some
love this season! I hope someone
"Sees you" truly "Sees YOU"
and your needs!!
I know this girl sure sees my needs.
Somehow manages to meet them
without me having to ask! I am truly 
blessed! 
#feelinggrateful
Christmas lights in our city! I always love to see the house where people live!
Wishing you Love and Peace this Holiday!

Loved your post this week, Sherrie. I'm sure that you had a lot to do with how your Cupcake turned out. It is a tribute to you that she is the generous, giving, loving person she is.

What a lovely post for Christmas time!
For me thisseason was always difficult (had not a good home in childhood and Christmas day was always the worst day in the year) and later I made my own holiday and that we( my sweetheart and I) make in this year too.
My mother cames in a hospital yesterday, don't know, will she be well and back again...try to find some joy by painting and hope, to have the time for it (hospital is far away and we haven't car...
Have a blessed time with your sweet people
