Thank you God!

Just a thought for today…….

Thank you God!

Even though I don’t have much of anything else, at least I have lots of LOVE around me.

That’s the most important thing that anyone can have.  It’s not about monetary wealth or how many things you have.  It’s all about the love you have in your life.  There’s always plenty of that to go around.  So, whenever we feel that we don’t have enough to pay the bills or to buy that new car or a new house, just remember that we have one thing that can’t be taken away or replaced.  That thing is love!   Thank you God!


Find a Job You Love

Do you ever dread getting up every morning to go to work knowing that you will be helping make someone else rich, while you’re still struggling to make ends meet?   It seems that we are working harder for less and less pay.  It doesn’t have to be that way at all.  What if you had a job you enjoyed so much that it didn’t even feel like work?

What is it that you like to do?   I’m sure there are lots of things that you’d rather be doing than going to a job that doesn’t make you happy.  Why not check into ways that you can make a living doing something that really gives you a sense of accomplishment?  Maybe it’s something that you could do to be of service to others.  Spend a little time each day thinking about how you could help make the world a little better and at the same time, make a living for yourself.

I really think that if you are truly happy in all areas of your life,  it’s easier to be kind to others.  It seems that people are always rushing around, consumed in their own lives so much that they forget about the most important things.  I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”   The same thing applies to all of us.  Can you imagine a world where everyone was happier?   No one would ever think about hurting others.  There would only be love and kindness going around.

Just something to think about it.

Love and happiness to all!

Have you ever seen a more innocent face?


This is Gypsy!  Her name should explain everything since she was found running around in a remote area looking lost and afraid.  Rescuing her was not an easy task, since she wanted to trust, but was unsure of whether or not she could feel that way toward anyone.  I was determined to take her away from such a terrifying life of being alone and unwanted.  Trying everything I could think of,  it still  took  what seemed like forever to convince her that it was okay and that she would be safe.

Finally, after an hour or so of pure determination and help from some very kind people who happened to be passing by, she gave up and just laid there to be picked up and taken to her new  home.

She came home to lots of new friends…me, two dogs, and a cat, who all welcomed her as part of the family.

Gypsy is still afraid of strangers and bad weather,  but with lots of love and affection, she is finally becoming a happy and  much more secure dog.

You will, from time to time,  hear more about Gypsy and her brothers and sisters, since they have all made life very interesting and even challenging for me, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  That’s what patience and unconditional love is all about.

When you help someone else, no matter who it is,  it helps you feel good about your own life.  You realize that you are definitely here for a reason and that you are needed and appreciated more than you will ever know.

I’d love to hear your stories about pets and how they have made a difference in your life.

Peace and love to all,





Love is what matters

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about patience and love.  These two things are  a very important part of living.  They go hand in hand, I would say.  Learning patience is not always an easy thing to do.  I know…..I’ve been there.   It really does get easier.
