Puppy Love


Cute as they can be
these puppies~one, two, three

sometimes they tumble
all in a jumble

playful and fun
romping in the sun

chasing butterflies
looking for a surprise …

Quotes About Acceptance

I was looking through quotes about acceptance, just curious to see what I could find. There are all kinds of acceptance…Accepting what life hands us, being accepted, accepting ourselves. Accepting others is very important, too! I think I found 10 of the quotes that have them all covered. I enjoyed reading them, and I hope you kind readers do, too! 🙂
1.Acceptance is not submission; it is the acknowledgement of the facts of a situation. Then deciding what we’re going to do about it~~Kathleen Casey Theisen
2.If I could define enlightenment briefly I would say it is “the quiet acceptance of what is”~~ Wayne Dyer
3.The first step toward change is awareness. The second step acceptance~~Nathaniel Branden
4. Our entire life consists ultimately in accepting ourselves as we are~~Jean Anouilh
5.You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give~~Eleanor Roosevelt
6.Acceptance, tolerance, and forgiveness, those are life-altering lessons~~Jessica Lange
7.Happiness can exist only in acceptance~~George Orwell
8.Only acceptance of the past can alter it~~T.S.Eliot
9.The keys to patience are acceptance and faith. Accept things as they are, and look realistically at the world around you. Have faith in yourself and in the direction you have chosen~~Ralph Marston
10.Give love and unconditional acceptance to those you encounter, and notice what happens~~Wayne Dyer

The Love in your Eyes

I see the love and the light

shining so bright

in your eyes

each look takes me by surprise

my darling man

just take my hand

and walk with me

happy as can be

our love so strong and true

I really do

wonder at times

how we’ve found a beautiful rhythm and rhyme

so in tune

that happened so soon

so many walks

and endless talks

and laughter and fun

we’ve only just begun

the future lies ahead and beckons

it’s the magic which is us …

My Dreams are Alive…

This is another one dedicated to my dreaming. I should clarify, I mean the dreams I have while sleeping. Of course I have daydreams and also the kind of dream we have about goals, life and all. Another title that needed explanation, seems I could be getting very well-known for strange titles alone! Well, it seems sometimes my dreams are so alive with Dave. Yes, that would be my late husband that I’ve written many other posts about. Evil cancer stepped in way to soon, but the divine order of things shouldn’t be questioned. Well we can question it but it really is how it’s supposed to have happened. Another thing, it can’t be changed…So acceptance is also good.

I can’t help myself, the writing about Dave I mean. These dreams and happenings they all really do have messages and meanings. I hope in sharing that somebody will perhaps take something positive, insightful and all from these posts. I don’t write about Dave to be sad, or to try to make others sad and I truly mean that with all my heart. Like the  post I wrote in the last week or so about how I found the note/poem/message in one of Dave’s books. That was so much a real amazing find…But I was supposed to find it at that time.

I feel I am very blessed to have the amount of dreams about Dave that I do get. I love that we are having these wonderful and just amazing good chats, one of those was last night. Some people tell me they never dream of loved ones on the other side or Heaven, I seriously thought everyone did. Turns out some of my family and friends don’t get these dreams. So I just have to ask… Do any of you? Well, kind readers… anyone want to give that question some thought? I know, it is personal but my curiosity is working overtime about this matter. So forgive me if that question is too much.

Anyway, back to my latest Dave dream I will go! We talked of how I am coming along in life, how we missed each other and the being together here on earth. He sang me songs, strumming his guitar as always and I sang along with some of the songs. We had a fun time dancing, too… A piano with a piano player appeared just for us! Then, Dave and I had a nice walk along a beach, his hand was so strong in mine. We chatted about this and that, it was so beautiful and it felt very real. I remember saying to Dave I didn’t want to go back, because he told me it was time for me to wake up. Well, we said our goodbyes and wake up I did. I felt well rested, too but my memories of that dream stayed with me all day…I just felt happy all day long. There was a gentle calmness about my day, it’s hard to explain or put into words. It’s how it always is when I have the dreams of Dave.

I have to ask you kind readers the same thing I keep asking myself…Are they “just dreams” or are they real? I think they are real, that some nights I fall asleep and wander off with Dave. Maybe it’s what happens in cases like ours and I really am very blessed.

The Skies

There’s so much magic to be seen

here and there and in between

look around and you will find

everything that comes to mind

the moon the stars,

look how many there are!

twirl and whirl around

see all that can be found

if you don’t look into the sky

or the magic that flies by

you’ll miss a lot

so much can be caught

in the blink of an eye

my oh my

don’t miss a thing

or lose a ring

just watch the sky,

truth never lies …
