New Week Inspiration โค๏ธ๐ŸŒŸ . . . Life is a journey…


Life is a journey – enjoy each day and don’t carry too much baggage.
Let the light of each day rise in your heart, and let the joy of each morning be seen in your smile.

May your presence bring waves of sweetness and gentleness to all who cross the path of your life.
And May you feel lifted up by life and supported in every way today and every day of your journey.

Wishing you all a fresh start to a brand new week. I hope that love will cause constant ripples in your world throughout your week.

I think of this every morning.


“Make of yourself a light”
said the Buddha, before he died.
I think of this every morning
as the east begins to tear off
its many clouds of darkness,
to send up the first signal –
a white fan streaked
with pink and violet”

Good morning with . . . Wisteria Floribunda



Wisteria Floribunda

Half drunk
on the heavy scent
of purple,

I almost expect
the naked

to step from behind
their fringed
and beaded

to the electric thrum
of bees.

Good morning with . . . lustrous Shasta




Very low maintenance and quick-growing, Viburnum ‘Shasta’ is a great choice for any setting. This species is tall, dense, and very beautiful, with lustrous dark green foliage. The maple like leaves turn purple and red in the fall providing you with some incredible autumn foliage.
In late spring fragrant white blooms (that butterflies love) open up in lovely rounded lacecap like clusters. They give away to abundant bright read fruits in mid-summer that provide a picnic for birds.

Be that one today!





One tree can start a forest;
One smile can begin a friendship;
One hand can lift a soul;
One word can frame the goal;
One candle can wipe out darkness;
One laugh can conquer gloom;
One hope can raise your spirits;
One touch can show you care;
One life can make the difference;
Be that one today.

Good morning . . . . with Rooster!


Right at the very break of day
He sings out
His raucous song of praise:
‘Wake up out of your sleep!
The sun comes golden!
See through the branches of the trees
Those bright rays of new hope
And Love Eternal
Are reaching out to us all
Who raise ourselves up
To live the new day! ‘

New week Inspiration โค๏ธโ˜€

May you have the courage this week to begin breaking the patterns in your life that no longer serve you.

May you give yourself the permission to pause and reflect today remembering that taking care of yourself doesnโ€™t mean: โ€œme firstโ€; it means, โ€œme tooโ€.

And May an infinite stream of love, joy and peace shower upon you today and always.
Wishing you all a Happy Monday and a safe and wonderful week ahead.
