“Roses and thorns are parts of the same plant. Somehow though, some people are concerned mainly about the roses. The rose is not on the plant for more than a week, but the thorns are there forever.
Roses are teaching that the beauty of life will bloom, once you have taught yourself the lessons given by living with the thorns.”

Mornings with Mary

Great Mother
You who are of me
and around me
Guide me through this day
Teach me the way
Through the darkness
and confusion
Grant to me
Courage, balance, peace
and love for this day
So mote it be!

My seagulls for Camera Critters

I found a nice Saturday meme called Camera Critters,which is all about photos of... You guessed! Animals & critters. I decided to share these photos of seagulls I took down by the Ossining Waterfront last Fall. I was so amazed at how many there were flying around there that day.I'd never seen so many at one time in that particular area. I got many shots of them ,these three are my favorite!

There are lots of great photos shared for this meme.Just go visit:

Friday Funnies

Yay! It's Friday! The weekend is here and I get to relax! Scratch that!It's time to catch up with all the things I was too tired or too lazy to do during the week.Yes, I suffer from PROCRASTINATION! I admit it! It's always been a struggle .I know it isn't funny.I'm working on it...I promise. I found this on Pinterest and found it so appropriate for me!

I would love some tips on overcoming this problem!If you have any leave a comment! ;-)

Enjoy your Friday!

Mornings With Mary

It's been such a long time since I posted!It's not even that I don't want to,it's more because of time and or lack of inspiration! I truly would like to change that! A lovely lady over at Recuerda Mi Corazon invited me to join in on posting on Monday mornings and share a photo and or inspiration about Our Lady Mary.The invitation came months ago and each Monday I meant to post but never actually got to it,because by the time I had the opportunity to post it was already Monday night! *sigh..But tonight I decided to go ahead and post this photo I took of the Virgin Mary this past Easter,even if it IS after 9:00 p.m.! Most people that know me are aware that I am not religious ,but I am spiritual.I don't exactly view Mary as most people do.But she is MY higher power,a source of comfort & hope for me.So thank you Rebecca for inviting me to join you on Mondays to honor Mary.It means so much to me that you did so,and I promise to post on as many Mondays as I can....e…

Project Life 365

“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.”

Thoughts for Thursday

My Thursday turned out pretty good. It was my first day back to work after my little vacation. I was apprehensive about it for reasons that I won't waste time writing about. It just goes to show worrying is a waste of time! It's always been a thing with me! I am a worry wart!
So it's Thursday and I want to get back to blogging "Thoughts for Thursday".
I want to write about a very
special person :
I am so blessed to have Carolina in my life. She has been part of my family since I was nine years old. We've gone through a lot of ups and downs, trials and tribulations . She has been the best friend anyone can have and she is my mom's bestie. She has a generous heart and even though she can have her grumpy moments she is one of the kindest people I know!

This morning was freezing and she knows I have asthma and I do walking to get to the bus and then up a hill to work. So she took the time to pick me up from home and take me to work. Not only that but she gav…

January 1st

The first day of the year is here and the only resolution I consciously made was to allow more time for creative expression. I can live with that right now!
Hopefully this will include more blogging!:) So for today I accomplished spending part of my day making an eyeglass holder I'm giving as a gift and a pair of earrings & I blogged about it! Good start!
