Mistakes are good


We all make mistakes in our lives.

Fear not, it is not all bad.

It is good to make mistakes, we are not perfect

we do learn from them:

Here some thoughts!


If we do not learn then it is a real mistake!


A person who never made a mistake, has never tried anything new.

Albert Einstein

Mistakes are portholes of discovery.

James Joyce


It’s not the mistake that matters;

it’s how you deal with it, what you learn from it,

and how you apply that lesson to your life.



This is my way!

Have an awesomely wonderful day !



I have a new friend, who is so like me.

Reaching for the sky , spreading joy, being happy.


Enjoying a peaceful time by myself


Having lots of love inside and sharing it with everyone


Be thankful for the beauty



is my new friend and I met him in a little book , my sister gave to me.

He is so sweet I have to share him with you, a big heart and spreading joy into the world.


The book is called “Wellness for the soul”.


Two Austrian people gave life to OUPS, 10 years ago, and he is now one of my favourite characters.

OUPS comes from a different planet, the planet of the heart, which is full of love , kindness, and peace. When he saw earth, a lovely planet, and noticed how unhappy and dissatisfied humans were, he wondered why humans are always arguing and even have wars, he thought to come down to spread love and kindness among all the busy people here. To make others happy is his main purpose. He now wanted to show humans how to live with love and making life easy and happy.

He flew down to earth and took two gifts, love and joy. He knew humans will love it.


I know some people on earth have received it but not all, and we are working on those….

For more information on OUPS

visit his web site.

Many of his books can be bought, some of his books are also in English. Example: sunbeams for our heart

His Facebook

Love him, spread joy and happiness!

Be thankful and stop complaining!


I came across this and it needs to be said many times .

Complain less, thank more


Unfortunately this is reality, we complain much faster than we give thanks.

Make a point and find good things in your day and praise and compliment people straight away.


Being grateful is wonderful,

having a grateful heart

changes your life!



Love the small things in life!


Very True!


I am grateful

for this moment,

for family and friends,

for the sunrise,

for the air we breathe,

for being here,

for sharing my life with you!

What are you grateful for today?

Have an awesomely grateful day, today!



I am blessed to be in such a lovely blogging community.

Wherever there is a human being,
there is an opportunity for a kindness.

Our children


School is starting again, our children go back to be educated.

Do remember though:

If we are worried about the future,
then we must look today
at the upbringing of children.
~ Gordon B. Hinckley ~


Don’t handicap your children, by making their lives easy.
~ Robert A. Heinlein ~




It’s not our job to toughen our children up
to face a cruel and heartless world.
It’s our job to raise children
who will make the world
a little less cruel and heartless.
L.R. Knost


All children should be taught
to unconditionally accept, approve,
admire, appreciate, forgive, trust
and ultimately, love their own person.
~ Asa Don Brown ~


Wishing everyone a good start to the school year

and an amazingly interesting peaceful and joyful year!

Ola Amigos !


My Spain adventure started in Malaga, where I met Ralph and we rented a little car.

I marked the places with red arrows.


We drove along the coast and had an ice cream and look around in Benalmadena Puerto where many yachts are ankered.


A bit further up north we looked at the Stupa Buddist Temple, and the view from there was breathtaking.

We stopped by a Butterfly house with amazing beautiful butterflies.

The next day we visited Ronda, a bigger more touristy town.

Another day we were visiting friends and having a party. More of the party here.

We drove amazing very winding mountain roads and visitied typical Spanish villages and a cork forest.

On my last day we all helped with the grape harvest.

One of Ralph’s friends has a vineyard and the grapes were ripe. It was so much fun! More here.

 My favourite chair:

The beautiful road into Ralph's village

The beautiful road into Ralph’s village

and again such beautiful flowers everywhere.


I saw places, tourists see, I saw sleepy little villages, I went through roads not many tourists drive and could mix and smile at friendly Spanish people, as well as meeting and mixing with friends of Ralph.

I enjoyed being part of the community there and saw how life is in Spain.

All in all a wonderful holiday and I loved everything!


When you arise in the morning,

think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive

to breathe,

to think,

to enjoy,

to love.
