Thank you to dear Shaun for nominating me for the “Dragon Loyalty Award.” You are so gallant and strong…and your blog is that of an Honest Knight! Dear Shaun, you wrote: “I have a great life, I am blessed, but when the hurt comes, I turn to you, Word Press..And you help me.. I hope I help you back, just a little” —- your words have helped me a great deal! Thank you for being a blogger and sharing your truth so beautifully!
Seven Facts about me:
1. I seem to love to laugh…more and more…and not to “cover up” pain…I feel so happy! and it is WONDERFUL! I have been sad long enough in my life…and now I think there is something more…deeper joy!
2. I love to plant trees…unfortunately, due to last summer’s drought, trees that I watched grow for 2o years, are now dying. But today, my neighbor gave me 4 more trees to plant! How kind and generous of Ellen!
3. I am blessed with beautiful people in my life…my family…my daughters…my grandchildren..LOVE!
4. I do enjoy playing Canasta and Gin Rummy…occasionally.
5. I would love to learn French, Spanish, Hindi and Chinese. I know one or two phrases in each. Now time for some serious studying! LOL
6. Sometimes I get very lonely…and depressed…and I turn to my writing to free myself…and then I get responses from the wonderful WordPress family and all is well! Since I have begun daily meditation, I am doing so much better…I see how important it is to return to the Center…to find balance.
7. I believe in the GOD of LOVE—and I am open to all forms of spirituality….because, honestly, I think we are all ONE in LOVE. We are all water love crystals, gifting each other along the way…just like a bag of marshmellows when placed in the microwave—they all become ONE! So we are marshmellows of love crystals full of love sugar and whichever religion, spirituality, view gets you to believe in yourself and the goodness of others is a wonderful, tremendous gift!
