Today's Cute Photos

The next picture will warm your heart

The Doberman is pregnant. The fireman had just saved her from a fire in her house,

rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, then he continued to fight the fire.

When he finally got done putting the fire out,

he sat down to catch his breath and rest.

A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina

Newspaper, noticed the dog in the distance looking at the fireman.

He saw the Doberman walking straight toward the firefighter

and wondered what she was going to do.

As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had just saved her life

and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this photo


Daughtry has a new album out and it is fabulous!!!!!! It is called Leave This Town. If you are a fan of Chris Daughtry you won't be disappointed. I can't stop listening to it -- I LOVE it!!!!

Check out the single "No Surprise". Enjoy!!!!!!

Click on Life!!!!

This is beautiful and meaningful.

With thanks to all those who have touched my life, to those who have been and gone, to those who are with me always, to those who are part of my life today, and to those who are yet to come into my life. I love you all. God bless.

Saint Theresa's Prayer

Saint Theresa's Prayer 

May today there be peace within. 
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. 

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. 
May you be content knowing you are a child of God. 
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, 
Dance, praise and love. 
It is there for each and every one of us.

* Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. 
Mahatma Gandhi

* Never, never, never give up. 
Winston Churchill

* You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. 
Eleanor Roosevelt

"When you have come to the edge of all light that you know 
And are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, 
Faith is knowing one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid to stand on or 
You will be taught to fly"

Niagara Falls

We spent three days visiting Niagara Falls and enjoying some time away as a family. We went for a long walk by the Falls, admiring both the Canadian and the American falls. We visited a variety of little shops near the Falls and on Clifton Hill, we ate a ridiculously expensive supper at the Rainforest Cafe, spent a day at Marineland, had supper at TGI Fridays, watched the fireworks from our hotel room, and made some new friends at Build A Bear. It was great to get away and forget, briefly, about the stresses of every day life.

It is hard not to be awestruck when you are looking at this:

Word For Women To Live By

My sister in law sent this to me while we were away. I thought it was worth sharing.

Words for Women to Live By 

1. Aspire to be Barbie - the girl has everything.

2. If the shoe fits - buy them in every color.

3. Take life with a pinch of salt... A wedge of lime, and a shot of tequila.

4. In need of a support group? - Cocktail hour with the girls!

5. Go on the 30 day diet. (I'm on it and so far I've lost 15 days).

6. When life gets you down - just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.

7. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just your personality.

8. I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.

9. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.

10. Don't get your knickers in a knot; it solves nothing and makes you walk funny.

11. When life gives you lemons in 2009 - turn it into lemonade then mix it with vodka.

12. Remember where ever there is a good looking; sweet, single or married man there is some woman tired of his crap!

13. Keep your chin up, only the first 40 years of parenthood are the hardest.

If it has Tires or Testicles it's gonna give you trouble.

15. By the time a woman realizes her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she's wrong.

'Good friends are like stars.........You don't always see them, but you know they are always there' 'Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow,  but live for today'

So ....

Did you wake up this morning, maybe hear some birds chirping? Did your feet touch the floor and start you on your journey for the day? Did you smile today for no reason? 

If any of these things happened for you today -- even if the only good thing in your day was that you woke up this morning -- don't forget to do one very important thing.

The Serenity Prayer

I definitely needed this one tonight. I have been tearing my house apart trying to locate the information for my specialist appointment next week. I even started panicking that maybe I had somehow missed the appointment. Thankfully I found it and I am greatly relieved to have confirmation that my appointment is on Tuesday of next week and I haven't missed it.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity 
to accept the things I cannot change; 
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time; 
Enjoying one moment at a time; 
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it; 
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life 
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

--Reinhold Niebuhr

Profound Thought for the Day

No matter how dark things may seem, remember ..... there is always a light at the end of the tunnel :)

Scroll down .........

With thanks to Patty :)

Just One


One song can spark a moment,

One flower can wake the dream.

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul.

One star can guide a ship at sea,

One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey.

One word must start each prayer.

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom,

One heart can know what's true,

One life can make a difference,

You see, it's up to you!

After a rather stressful and difficult day, I was thinking about how much I would love to get away to somewhere peaceful and tranquil. Somewhere that would allow me to forget all the stresses that are in my life right now. I think either of these locations would work. What do you think?

Join me --- relax and dream a little dream with me.
Pass the coconut oil please ... and the pineapple juice :)

My Kind of Business Card

Darla, one of the wonderful ladies on one of the Yahoo groups that I moderate, created these beautiful business cards to randomly hand out. I think this is such a great idea!!!! Wouldn't you feel wonderful if someone handed you one of these? I'm thinking of creating some myself so that I too can spread some much needed cheer in our world.

Read the card and take it to heart. It's meant for you :)

This was an exciting day in our household. My hubby accomplished a goal he has wanted to achieve for a long time. He's been working very hard and a few weeks ago he wrote some intense exams. Today he got the news that not only did he pass, but he passed with flying colours!!!!! So now he is a graduate!!!! I'm so proud of him!!!!

In honour of his achievement, I am going to share some wonderful graduation quotes I found while surfing the net tonight.


I'm so proud of my hubby for having the courage to pursue this dream and for persevering to achieve it!!!! Congrats honey!!!!!
