Sunday Solace

Simple things to think about...

Hold your family close and make time for them ❤️
Take time to live well
Eat ice cream
Pod some peas
Skim a few stones
Go barefoot
Read all afternoon
Tell a story
Find meaning in small things 
Gather your friends together
Watch clouds
Smell the sea
Be quiet
Feel the wind
Open all the windows
Count your blessings 
Bake bread
Climb a hill
Send postcards
Turn off your phone
Snuggle in
Have an adventure
Drink wine
Make a campfire
Ride a bike
Hang twinkly lights
Enjoy being alone
Like sunshine and showers
Make time for the simple things

It's quite easy sometimes to get upset about things - perhaps someone has said a wrong word. Perhaps you, yourself, have said a wrong word. It's so easy for misunderstandings to arise and then, before we know it, things can get blown out of all proportion. The one thing I have learnt now that I'm older, is THAT ITS JUST NOT WORTH IT.  Reach out to that other person. Even if it's not actually your fault, forgive and make things right again. Life is short and, as they say, tomorrow is not promised to us. Don't let things fester....

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice. 

Enjoy your week everyone. Thank you for dropping by...

Happy Sunday Thisisme. I like your updated sidebar and beautiful ocean photo! It is all so true to be kind and forgiving, and, make the effort to go forward to make things right. Sometimes that is almost not possible, but, I find that I do feel better if I have made the effort. Well, I'll be taking Scooter home this afternoon, and won't have him for tricks or treats, but, we've had a fun celebration this weekend. Hope you get to enjoy Eli and Ruby for some Halloween fun. Have a great week! Hugs from Texas! ♥

Hallo Suzanne. I think I'll have to give you an Award for being my number 1 fan! 😊 I'm sure you'll be sad to see Scooter leave again - it's such a lovely age, isn't it? Bit I'm just glad that you've managed to spend this time with him. They grow away so quickly. I agree, it's not always possible to put things right, but we have to try. Thank you for noticing the updated sidebar ❤️ You have a good week too, all the way over there in Texas.

Wonderful advice! "Treat others as you'd like to be treated" is a personal favorite of mine!
