Poem

Standard

The Magic Box

I will put in my box

Four lovely summers
A mouth watering chocolate land
Another world which is amazing

I will put in my box

A second sun which doesn't give out light
An ocean which has five wishes for every person
Water that dances when someone goes in it

I will put in my box

The sweet sound of the swooshing sea
A snowman that can survive in Summer
Someplace where the rain never falls

I will put in my box

A place where the rain always stays
A non polluted world
A never ending rain forest

My box is fashioned from gold and has a secret under the lid and under the inside floor

I shall surf in my box

On the lovely ocean and see it dance in front of me and catch some fish for dinner.

I found this poem in the attic while sorting out.

It was written by my son when he was 9 years old.

The time has come

Standard

It is time for rest,

it is time for fun,

it is time for enjoyment,

it is time to laugh,

it is time to dance,

it is time for just doing nothing – sometimes,

it is time to learn,

it is time to enjoy the world,

it is time to change.

The time has come.

I am retired.

What a feeling!

I am grateful to know that I have made a difference to 

the company and people I worked with.

I leave with a sense of achievement and happiness. 

 

 

Let’s celebrate life ♥ Each Day ♥

Standard

Each day is precious

Each day gives a new start

Each day gives new opportunities

Each day is a gift

We easily forget in our daily routine that

Each day needs to be celebrated.

When you arise in the morning

think of what a privilige it is to be alive –

to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love!

Marcus Aurelius

 

Wishing you an amazingly awesome day! 

 

Get dressed

Standard

Getting dressed, getting ready for the new day is routine for some

it can be exciting or meditative for others.

Once you choose your clothes

add these:

Try optimism on. It’s one size fits all.

And it’s free. Go on, it’ll look great on you!

A smile is the best makeup that a girl can wear

Sprinkle a little more love onto everything you do.

Let the light within your heart shine throughout the world.

Now you can journey through your day

with efficiency, hope and a sense of humour.

 

And don’t forget:

You are amazing! 

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone
Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety
Your breath can radiate Love or muddy the room in depression
Your glance can awaken joy
Your words can inspire freedom
Your every act can open hearts and minds

Snow

Standard

Many countries have had lots of snow and really cold arctic temperatures.

I have seen beautiful snow pictures from other bloggers.

Here in London,

we had it cold (as it seemed for us) but not bitter cold

and little snow like a dusting some days.

Here are my only impressions from the Winter.

On my walk to work, I liked these

It is lovely to see the little snow crystalls.

 

 

 

Spring is in the Air

Standard

My dear friends,

thank you for all your prayers and good wishes

I am honoured to have such wonderful friends.

I feel much better and

I am back at work, taking it easy though.

Walking to work,

I see little daffodills trying to come through.

What a joy to see.

I can hear birds singing and chirping,

What a joy to hear.

I am very grateful to be able to experience the first signs of Spring.

Nature brings new life and is healing.

Enjoying these little beauties make me feel happy.

Do you have any signs of Spring where you live?

 

Staying positive

Standard

Being positive is what I am,

unfortunately the virus thought the same.

I tested positive for the virus after I fell ill starting with a massive headache.

Fever came second and then I started the cough.

Even though I had been extremely careful, never went out, had all shopping on line delivered, only walked to work and back, wearing masks, washing hands, keeping my distance always.

Still I got it, it seems to be so easy to get infected.

————————————————————-

My isolation period is over now and I am feeling better.

I am lucky and I am super grateful that I could stay home and deal with all symptoms myself and concentrate on getting better.

Tiredness/ feeling exhausted and losing the sense of taste and concentration is what is left.

It does zap the life out of you and it will take time to get back to normal.

I can’t concentrate on a good book, but rather sleep. I sleep more than ever.

 

Eating is a chore as everything tastes rubbish.

Even chocolate isn’t appealing.

I am a fighter and I will conquer this too!

– for the sake of chocolate 🙂

 

 

The NHS has been amazing I can only give them praise.

I ordered the test online, it was delivered the next day , done and posted back.

The result came via email the day after.

The NHS sent me texts with clear instructions of isolation dates continuously.

They kept phoning throughout my isolation period to check how I am doing and to give advice on questions I have.

 

Thank you NHS for helping me through this difficult period.

I urge everyone to be extremely careful.

Wash hands, stay away from people and stay safe.

Keep the virtual love and hugs going – 

they are more needed than ever.

 

 

A very healthy and happy new Year 2021

Standard

2020 will go down in history.

with the virus

and for the UK additional with the Brexit news.

It has been a difficult year for everyone,

a year of new challenges,

a year of learning,

a year of many changes.

We will look at life differently,

with changed attitudes of what is important to us.

We need to keep on smiling next year,

we are stronger than ever.

 

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

Philippians 4,13

 

One day our hugs

will be longer and

more meaningful than ever.

 

Our positive attitude will help us to go on,

helping and supporting each other.

May you always have a reason to smile.

Stay healthy, stay strong and stay happy.

 

Thank you, my wonderful friends for all your visits and support

during this year on my blog.

Sending you all my love! 

Have a wonderful, amazing

New Year 2021!

May it bring Peace, good Health,

Joy, Happiness, lots of Love and Kindness

to everyone!
