summer of love

 


Let's have a summer of love, shall we?



Let's love what we have right now...not when this or that is just right.  Right now.


I'm including everything in my summer of love.  Even if things are falling apart or nothing is going the way I thought it'd go...I'm gonna love it exactly as is.  Life is always easier when I accept it exactly how it is in this v. moment.  x

  7. Your post could not have come at a better time. I always take flowers when visiting my husband's grave each Father's Day and his birthday. This year it was Sally Holmes roses from the back patio for my pizza man. The beautiful interior shots of your home seem to have gotten me back on course, as well as, the sage advice I will try to remember each day. Thank you.

  8. Your garden is looking spectacular. Something like that must bring such peace. I hope you are well and not too sad these days. I feel that my own husband, age 71, has beginning signs of dementia. I know that one of us will go first. After 51 years together, it is a sad thought. I am glad that you have found some happiness in simple things, but I understand that life cannot be the same without your dear husband.

  9. These are wonderful words, Janet. Thank you. I will embrace a summer of love along with you. I read Byron Katie "Loving What Is" a few years ago and it changed my life. Radically and irrevocably changed my life. Your words and photos brought peace to my heart this evening. Peace be with you. xo karen

  15. My kids (all grown) first Father's Day without their Dad. It was a tough day for all of us. So many wonderful memories. He will be gone for one year on Sept 1st. After 40 years together it's hard to find balance in this new world I find myself in. Being good with where I am right now is gentle reminder to stay in the moment. Not looking behind in what was or to the future it what will be....but right here right now. Thanks Janet - Have a fantastic summer of love!!

  20. I agree wholeheartedly! I just passed my 9 year anniversary of my husband's death & it wasn't long after he died that I began seeing life differently. I try to embrace & enjoy every ordinary day & not make mountains out of molehills. We often don't realize how good we have it.

    ...all is grace!
