Celebrate life

Do you ever have those days when it seems like things keep going wrong? First one thing, then another and another until you say “Ah, Calgon take me away!” I know I do, and it seems when I have those kinds of days, I’ve simply forgotten.

I’ve forgotten to be grateful. I’ve forgotten that my life is full of joy every day. I’ve forgotten how much love surrounds me. And most importantly, I’ve forgotten to love myself.

Be grateful and full of praise for your life

It’s so easy to go through life, day by day only seeing what we do and responding to each situation. For me, when I remember to love my life is simply happier. And the more I allow myself to feel love, the more happiness I feel. This quote from Oprah Winfrey felt perfect today, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”

Praise can take many forms, for me it means love and gratitude. Allow yourself to feel, there’s so much love in this world you just have to open your heart to see how wonderful life truly is. It’s the simple things that bring the most joy, and when we step back and observe them through our heart we see beyond the simple into the miracle that is our life. May you praise your life today and feel the joy that love brings.

Love and Light!


For Appreciating the Simplest of Joys

I have been blessed with a beautiful boy who is a little over 3 years of age. Having children and participating in their lives predisposes you to appreciate moments of joy.


A balloon is a simple and inexpensive items that in out household today has become the most interesting and amazing toy enticing giggles, huge smiles and hilarious laughter. Life happens in these moments and I’m so thankful that I have come far enough in my spirituality to see these moments of joy and appreciate them.

Not only watching, but living the humor and joy of bouncing the balloon around the house with my boy shuts off my brain and forces me to live in the moment. And we experience joy, happiness and love by living in the moment.

May you feel moments of love and peace today!

Go in peace, love and light.
