Hello December – December the 1st – We open the first window in our advent calendar

Standard

Welcome December !

 

The Motto for December is:

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

It had been a very different and hard year for the whole world.

Yet there is still always something good in every day.

This is what we need to celebrate.

We have adapted to the new normal and

we are still learning.

 

Love is always there and we need now more than ever.

Spread the love and kindness,

find something to celebrate everyday!

Sending my love all over the world to you

wishing you a peaceful December !

 

For December I will post a quote or saying every day

so you can “open” a window in my Advent Calendar.

My Christmas cactus

Standard

Last year in December I bought a Christmas Cactus as a gift for someone.

Before I could give it, all buds fell off so I kept it.

Over Spring Summer and Autumn I left it outside in the garden.

In September I noticed that it is forming many buds.

When it got colder in November I took it in.

Watching it every day with joy the buds got bigger.

Today is a very happy day!

They are opening:

 

 

What wonderful display, a beautiful red!

I am so overjoyed.

 

Flowers do make the world laugh!

Hello November

Standard

Welcome November !

 

The Motto for November is:

 

When words are both true and kind,

they can change the world.

Make your words true,

make them kind,

make them count.

Show kindness through your words,

as we cannot show our emotions with hugs these days,

we can show them with kind loving words.

We can’t come together,

we can still show kindness in other ways.

Make November an extra kind month!

The world needs kindness.

 

Wishing you a wonderfully kind November!

Hello October!

Standard

Welcome October !

An Autumn month with many beautiful colours.

The Motto for October is:

Smile

Every year, on the first Friday in October we celebrate World Smile Day® since 1999.

Do an act of kindness,

make someone smile today.

Make the whole world smile.

Even if you can’t see the smile wearing a mask,

your smile shines in your eyes.

Make October a Smile Month,

there is lots to smile about,

there is lots to be happy about.

Even in hard times

find the small things,

beautiful things,

things which mean a lot,

and make you smile.

“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

“When things are difficult, smile by faith.

Don’t wait until you feel better.”

 Joel Osteen

 

Wishing you an awesome October with many smiles!

 

Hello September!

Standard

Welcome September !

The Motto for September is:

 

Make today awesome that yesterday gets jealous. 

 

Enjoy and celebrate each day,

be purposeful,

be focused,

be intentional,

bloom every day,

be happy.

Make every day count.

What you do today, may impact your future,

and will definitely create a past.

Create a past you love to remember.

 

 

Yesterday is gone.

Tomorrow has not yet come.

We have only today .

Let us begin.

Mother Theresa

 

Wishing you a really awesome September!

 

 

Short Retreat

Standard

During this beautiful hot weather in Britain

I went for a short retreat

to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.

Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.

 

So quiet and peaceful.

This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.

The Lynford Arboretum just next door,

perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.

We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.

At night. as there was no light pollution at all,

we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.

Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.

 

Hello August!

Standard

Welcome August !

The Motto for August is:

Miracles happen every day!

sunset July in London – picture taken by me

There are only two ways to live your life

One is as though nothing is a miracle

the other is as though everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

 

Wishing you a miraculous August!

 

 

Hello July!

Standard

Welcome July !

The Motto for July is:

Begin each day with a thank you!

Our world has gone smaller,

with staying at home more,

less interactions with people physically,

less hugs,

smiles we can’t see through masks (only in the eyes).

 

Life is different.

 

However attitudes towards everything might have changed in a positive way.

Priorities might have changed.

I am more grateful than ever for little things around me.

Thank you for nature,

thank you for my health,

thank you for my friends,

thank you for food,

thank you for all the people who are working hard to make life sort of normal,

thank you for each new day,

thank you for the sun,

thank you for my garden,

thank you

thank you

thank you

for all these things and so many more I’m not writing down.

Have a gratitude attitude!

 

Wishing you a thankful July!
