December







~December~


The last month of the year. As we reflect upon what occurred in our lives in 2012, we revel in our accomplishments and look forward to embracing the dreams and goals we have yet to achieve.

Though the end of the year brings a sense of finality, it also heralds another new beginning -- a wonderful reminder that our capacity to dream and grow can constantly be renewed. Carl Bard put it be...autifully: "Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."

So, consider December a reminder that anticipation and resilience outlast the 12-month calendar -- and that there's always time to pick up where you left off.

Blessed December to all of you!

Remembering 9/11







"For me and my family personally, 
September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, 
impermanent, and uncertain. 
Therefore, we must make use of every moment
 and nurture it with affection, 
tenderness, 
beauty, 
creativity, 
and 
laughter."

~ Deepak Chopra

September







How the time passed away, all the trouble that we gave
And all those days we spent out by the lake
Has it all gone to waste? All the promises we made
One by one they vanish just the same

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could've been
It was worth it in the end

Now it all seems so clear, there's nothing left to fear
So we made our way by finding what was real
Now the days are so long that summer's moving on
We reach for something that's already gone, yeah

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same

The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could've been
It was worth it in the end

We knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how
We would end up here the way we are
Yeah, we knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how

Of all the things I still remember
Summer's never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we'd still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could've been
It was worth it in the end

Then Let Go...






Clarity is calling you....to come home to yourself,

to release your fears,

forgive yourself,

play,

breathe,

be inspired,

love,

and embody more and more of who you truly are....

so you may live the life you are meant to be living!

Close your eyes....

Cleanse your heart....

Then let go.....

Birthday Prayer



Birthday Prayer




Thank you, God, for giving me another year of life.


Thank you for all the people who remembered me today


by sending cards, and letters, gifts and good wishes.




Thank  you for all the experience of this past year;


for times of success which will always be happy memories,


for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness

and of my need for you,


for times of joy when the sun was shining,


for times of sadness which drove me to you.




Forgive me


for the hours I wasted,


for the chances I failed to take,


for the opportunities I missed this past year.


Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,


and through it to bring good credit to myself,


happiness and pride to my loved ones,


and joy to you. 

Amen.
