My Garden Heaven

Standard

Come with me in my little garden.

Small but so enjoyable and beautiful.

Enjoy the small things and see the beauty in it.

My strawberries are coming so lovely this year.

GARDEN jUNE2016 (1)

 

They are bigger in size, as we had lots of rain,

still not quite red as we do not have enough sun, but…..

All things grow with love!

Slowly they are getting red though, see for yourself:

Almost any garden,

if you see it at just the right moment,

can be confused with paradise.

Hello February – Gratitude focus

Standard

February is here and it has an additional day this year!

All days full of surprises and miracles.

Lets make February a month where we focus on Gratitude.

 

How often do you say thank you and really mean it?

What are you most grateful for?

Consider the things in your life you frequently take for granted

like health and love and friendship.

Choose to appreciate them,

feeling thankful does feel good.

Choose appreciation instead of expectation.

Have a gratitude journal which cultivates an attitude of gratitude.

It’s coming on

It’s coming on….

more things I am very grateful for:

A working sink

16c

a working bath and shower

16b

and my luxury flushing toilet…. notice… no bucket 🙂

16a

Still more to do in that new bathroom until it is really finished, then I will give you a tour.

And here a valuable tip , taken from a funny garment label:

…always wash your butt…

…Keep away from fire especially when wearing….

There you go

and now…..back to work….

Sending you all love and hugs!

Don’t take things for granted!

Standard

‘Wouldn’t it be great if we don’t even take simple things in life for granted.

..Like having clean water when we open the tap…’

This is what my son said yesterday.

It comes after we lived for two weeks without a flushing toilet….just a bucket of water next to it.

Now again we have the luxury of pressing the convenient button to flush it again… yes pure luxury!

Practicing gratefulness makes life much more amazing and full of miracles.

Make each day a sweet day!

Celebrate each new day.

Start each day with a positive thought,

Think of 3 things you like to accomplish each day.

Take some time of the day just for yourself.

See the magic in each day and enjoy it!

Look out for something beautiful!

Think of 3 things you are grateful for at the end of the day!

Go to sleep content!

My garden in Autumn

Standard

I do love my little space I call garden and treated the wood on the wall, as it was a beautifully warm and sunny day.

Even if you have only a little space, it can still be an oasis of peace, calmness and beauty.

I found this lovely white heart in the garden centre and couldn’t resist.

Enjoy what you have and make the most of it!

Be Thankful

~ Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire. If you did what would there be to look forward to?

~ Be thankful for such a beautiful Day

~ Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.

~ Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement.

~ Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character.

~ Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.

~ Be thankful when you’re tired and weary, because it means you’ve made an effort.

There are so many things we can be thankful for, simple things we take for granted, but without them we would feel lost.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

Eckhart Tolle

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” –Meister Eckhardt

“Gratitude is medicine for a heart devastated by tragedy. If you can only be thankful for the blue sky, then do so. ”
Richelle E. Goodrich

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
Epicurus

“An attitude of gratitude brings great things.” –Yogi Bhajan

If you concentrate on finding,
whatever is good in every situation,
you will discover,
that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude,
a feeling that nurtures the soul.
~ Rabbi Harold Kushner ~
