Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil
painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. Autumn is the
eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of
maturity. Let me express my thanks to all the artists here
who have produced such lovely "AUTUMN" graphics - things
of beauty of the season done so well....the colors so well
blended and the pictures ... just beautiful. To all the
artists .... thank you so much for the graphics.
Sometimes things happen to you and at the time they seem
painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without
overcoming those obstacles you would have never realised
your potential strength, will power or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance
or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost
moments of true greatness and sheer stupitidy all occur to
test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whether
they be events, illness or relationships life would be like a
smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere, safe and
comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
These past few months have been hard for me but I look
forward to a new and better day tomorrow . I believe
things can get only better . I look forward to your visits
very much but please bear with me if I do not respond
immediately. Thank you for your thoughts and kindness.
Take care and have a good day day!
Good day to you my friend, a wish for you
I send ... that you will have a happy day filled
with sunshine and good cheer. May your heart
be content ... come what may.
With today's busy lifestyles, it is alll too easy to put
relationships on the backburner and take them for granted.
Even though you may have every intention of spending
regular time with your loved ones, hectic schedules get
in the way and you end up running in every direction
except towards each other.
You know that your personal relationships are paramount
to personal fulfillment. Be sure to set some time aside
each week to rediscover the people that mean most to you.
Be along with that person, talk,enjoy your time together
and renew your relationship.
After all, in this life, your loved ones are what really
matters . Who you are is not determined by what
people may say or do nor by any one event in your life
but by what lives inside of you. Greet every new day with
purpose . Live in each moment before it is gone.
Hold on tight to hope with both hands and keep walking
forwards as life goes. Your belief determines your actions
and your action determines your results, but first you
have to believe. Have a great day!.
"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
~ George Cooper, "October's Party"
Just stopping by to wish you
a beautiful weekend, my friend.
Big Hugs, Rita
