I love Smiles




As my longtime partner, Gordon, had brain surgery in May, we decided LIFE IS SHORT and perhaps we could look at our Bucket Lists…and quickly realized we both have wanted an RV (recreational vehicle) / Motor Home…so we “revised how we wanted to use our $” and bought a used RV!  Instead of going on a dream Hawaiian vacation, the RV is our Hawaiian Chateau!  Have a look at how we go “Glamping”:

So you see why I have not been writing on my blog in a while.  We have only traveled close by the area within an hour or two, enjoying and smiling all the while on our short  trips.  


And, as I have written before (Aug. 2018, In my Backyard) I am busy in the summertime raising butterflies and THIS YEAR I had 20+ Monarchs with an occasional Black Swallowtail that would come to visit.  This keeps me busy “spying” on them as the caterpillars grow and turn into butterflies.  Birds and bees visit, too.

AND a real JOY of LIFE is time with darling Grandchildren when we had a family gathering:

They keep us SMILING and light up our hearts!

NOW is the only time there is and each moment is for giving…(and wearing flip-flops when you can!)


Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.   –Mother Teresa

Love is the answer no matter the question!Heart__________________________________________________

butterful-yellow  About the Author:

In the summer of 2018 I started “raising” caterpillars and Butterflies in my backyard (see “Backyard” Blog) and so I learned about the *BUTTERFLY EFFECT: The idea that one butterfly could eventually have a far-reaching ripple effect; the idea that small causes may have large effects in general.

I want my Blog and any place I am, to be a place where I try my best to bring peace, love and smiles; where I have my little positive influence on any person’s attitude and that the world will be a better place.  I used to think if I could help just one person, that would be wonderful. Through these past 25+ years I have been in the presence of so many amazing people to give and receive from.  I am humbled, honored and grateful.
