Good Morning:
While I may do some things better than another person, they may do other things better than me. We each have unique strengths and qualities, but we are equally worthy and valuable.
Equality doesn't mean being the same as everyone else. It means we are unique in our differences, yet one at heart. We depend on one another to fill in the gaps. We look to our spiritual nature to show us our oneness.
I acknowledge the strengths and special gifts of my fellow human beings, lifting others up rather than tearing anyone down. I may do some things better than you. You may do some things better than me, but together we make a formidable team.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonHave a good day!!
Get some movement in today. Your body will love you for exercising!! emoticon

FULFILLED by service to others

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Good Morning:
Happiness presents itself in all types of packages: the love of family, the beauty of nature, the joy of watching puppies play. And yet family dynamics can change, beauty may fade, and puppies may chew my shoes! Lasting pleasure and fulfillment come from giving your heart, mind and soul to your community.
As you grow and develop, you look for ways to serve the people in your community, protect the well-being of the planet, or contribute my resources to animal welfare. In whatever way you chose you are guided from within, you joyfully share your strengths and gifts, living a life of lasting fulfillment.
emoticon I was brought up to do service to your community. When you give to others you get ten fold back. Have a good day and get some movement in today!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am in complete agreement with you, I find that I wait to hear or find what to do, and today as I was going by a church the sign out in front of it said "If you give when you are asked, you are too late" well, maybe not those exact words, but it really struck home with me, because I do and I do want to give and volunteer, but I am one who always wait, so I have to try and do it first,
Good Blog, Nancy, I always enjoy reading you.

    I couldn't agree more. When we give something with no re-pay required is so soul gratifying. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. emoticon

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength." A. J. Cronin

Good Morning; Sometimes worry is my middle name. I have gotten better but I worry too much sometimes. My son had a bad day with pain. His pain meds were not working to give him relief. What helped him much was me just sitting and talking with him. This kept his mind off the pain. When I had back surgery many years ago, I was told when your nerves start mending there is extremely internal pain that pain meds are hard to tame. emoticon But I think what is happening is that he is getting mentally tired of the challenge of the ordeal of healing again. He is not sleeping well. So this has been his first set back, it was a surprise to him even though he has been through it before. I am there to continually reassure him. emoticon Needless to say- not much was done yesterday. I only got some of my exercise in. I do much better on a schedule but I do not have any at the moment. He is sleeping now and need to stay quiet so he sleeps. That is best for him. My treadmill is too noisy. I do pilates but love that walking. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in my son's life.
We are having conversations that are hard to get when he is healthy and on the run with his life. Look for those moments with your loved ones and embrace them. emoticon emoticon emoticonhave a good day. Get some movement in - it will enhance your health. emoticon emoticon

    worry is also my middle name, it has done well for us usually, but, also, I wonder if I had of been just a bit more worryfree whether we would have had more material things, Well I am not complaining along those lines, But I do know my worrying stopped us from doing lots of things.
Hoping your son has a good weekend, and I know what you are saying, I think sons for the most part need their Mothers to relieve their worries.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Mary

Good Morning!! Forgiveness frees me from the past and moves me forward in life.
emoticon emoticon emoticon Because I forgive myself and others of perceived hurts and slights, I am no longer tied to the past. I move forward in life to the present time and enjoy true health and wholeness of mind and body. I enhance the relationships that have been established already and also my relationships that are just becoming established. emoticon How are you doing today!! have you been getting in your exercise. I need to step it up, but I am just not up to energy level yet. It will come. I am just being gentle with myself and forgiving myself from not being the energized bunny I normally am. I am coping with much as most of you are. Please take it easy on yourself and take one day at a time. do not beat yourself up when you have circumstances that take some of your energy.

The sun's rays catch the icy branch of a tree and suddenly the very ordinary becomes a thing of splendor. Say to yourself: I am a spiritual being in human expression. My spiritual nature radiates through my humanity to reveal the beauty of the gifts I have to share. I am loving and wise, compassionate and generous. I am divine love expressing. I am grateful for today and my being.

Thank you all for the input. The problem has always been the Army medical center that my son goes. Last time there was a sign that no one could accompany the patient unless they were a minor. Now I guess if you make prearrangement you can have one person with you b/c it depends on the room they put you in. They change the rules. I even went to reception and asked if I could accompany my son. Reception told me that I could not b/c he was put in a room which had no privacy. They did tell me that the doctor would come out to talk with me afterwards b/c they contacted him. He did not. In fact, he was not even contacted by reception. emoticon emoticon emoticonhave a good day! Get some movement in today!!
