Quote 531 Suze Orman's Grandfather

Quote by Suze Orman's grandfather, "Suze they can take your house, they can take your job, they can take your money, they can even take your mind, but they can never take your heart.  So you have to grow up valuing your heart and who you are."

12/26/2012 Outdoor Wednesday #207


If you would like to participate or view Outdoor Wednesday posts click here:   http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/.   Thank you Susan for being our hostess for the year 2012.  We all really appreciate your dedication to blogging. 


Found this flower, carried it with me while walking down at the beach and then these two boulders showed up and then I took the picture.   I am grateful for the stories and pictures that just come to me.   What a gift from the universe.

My friend Maria is having a hernia operation today.    Denver, my brother, is in the hospital for tests because he has lung cancer.   So my thoughts and prayers are being sent their way.    John, my husband, was in the hospital for pancreatitis, his second attack this year.   Thank God he was home for the holidays.   We seem to always be reminded how each moment counts and how we have no control.

2012 is ending.   May you and yours be blessed with love, kindness, good health in the New Year.

The Day Before Christmas 2012

 My mother-in-law, Catherine, said,  "I don't want to do Christmas this year."    And she didn't.   On December 24, 2001 she passed away.   We celebrated Christmas Eve with the grandchildren and our children anyway.   And so, that year we all learned, life goes on.   And so it is.

"You are capable of making a difference, of being bold, and of changing more than you are willing to admit. You are capable of making art."

Quote 527 Ezra Bayda

"Spiritual practice includes learning how to open heartedly receive the shocks of life---the things you don't like, the people who criticize you, the job that goes wrong, the partner that leaves, the health that fails you---whatever shakes you up."
...Ezra Bayda
