Moments of Gratitude (Sea Acres with Friends)

Recently a couple of friends and I have started to go on a weekly walk at the Sea Acres Rainforest. It is a beautiful, peaceful environment where we can reconnect with nature, catch up and keep active with walking.

It is a lovely way to spend the afternoon and I am grateful for the tranquility in brings into my life.

Quote - Advice from a Tree

"Advice from A Tree"

Stand tall and proud
Sink your roots deeply into the earth
Reflect the light of your true nature
Think long term...

Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The energy and birth of spring
The growth and contentment of summer
The wisdom to let go the leaves in the fall
The rest and quiet renewal of winter

Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth.. fresh air.. light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible
Remember your roots.. and
~ Enjoy the view

Moments of Gratitude (Fresh Produce)

We don't have a lot of space at our house for a garden but this year my goal is to utilise the space we do have more effectively. This is our first crop of Radish.... Yummo.
I am grateful to be able to grow my own produce, even just a little here and there.

The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.  ~Hanna Rion

Moments of Gratitude (10 Years of Marraige)

Yesterday was our 10 year Wedding Anniversary!! I came home to 10 stunning red roses... one for each year. How romantic!

I am very grateful for my husband, our love and our partnership in life.
