We Wore a Poppy for You

…. in remembrance of all Veterans

Today we post with gratitude (not obligation).

Today we watched, we cheered, we cried, as we remembered. 
(via CBC as the ceremony unfolded in Ottawa).
We are happy we did not remember alone. It was a joy to see both old and young present in the large crowd.

We are so thankful for all those who fought for our freedom.  To all those brave soldiers who were willing to leave the comforts of home and battle in the trenches.  (I’m sure those were not the most glorious of days)

Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones, and to those who have been injured while on duty.

We are thankful for all those who continue to fight for freedom.

Today, I wonder if the greatest tribute to our veterans would be, for all Canadians to work together, pray, to ensure the continuance of freedom for all in the beautiful land.

Happy Remembrance Day!

It's October and We're Thankful

It's October and we're Thankful .....for Colorful leaves still on the Trees!

Here they are blowing gently in the breeze

We're glad to see 
that some 
shades of green can still 
be found


at least they were
still around
few days ago

Some leaves
are more dressed
in Fall display...

How long can they hang on?

 we are 
still very glad.

To enjoy this October's
Fall display of colors.

Todays Color is Yellow

It is time to get some color on this blog.  So today's color is Yellow!

A Cheery Pansy

I always enjoy seeing the pansies. They add such a cheery presence to where ever they choose to bloom.

The Dandelion

Usually what I see first are the dandelions.  (I can count on them to survive the winter.)  You must admit they do add some color after the long days of white and grey.... of winter.

A Beautiful Yellow Butterfly

I was enjoying a nice walk when I happened to look down and find this beautiful yellow butterfly.  I am glad it wanted to be photographed.

Wild Flower

Another colorful surprise on my morning walk.

What color is your day?

It's a White World

It has been snowing around here....
...making all things looking very very white...

But today is warmer, so we are enjoying exploring the white white world.
 I say, 
"If it's going to be Winter, it may as well be in January!"

What color is your world?

Did You Plunge Right In?

January 2013

Has the New Year beckoned?
Come on
Let’s get started
On a new adventure
A new path
New goals
Let’s follow this path
Make some tracks
Jump in!

Oh, how can you resist?
The freshly fallen snow
All sparkly in the sunlight..
just waiting...
for YOU.

What footprints have you left?
How is the NewYear going?
Have you plunged right in?
