TT – The Happy Heart eDition

Striking Pinks Original photo: Yvettes Twistedvines + kkhappy heart texture. For the last month I have been receiving a ‘daily truth from the Brave Girls Club’. By subscription you receive each day a free gift of words, and I so wanted to share these words with you…and share a happy heart with me. Dear Sweetheart Girl,When living a brave and uncommon life, things are never going to be the same, ever. We are constantly learning the new ways to do things, and the best ways to do things. We are often surviving through broken heartedness and growing stronger to get us to the next path of growth. We are always seeing new and beautiful things, and extracting the gifts, lessons and beauty out of everything, including the painful parts. We are always always always becoming, always. We were never meant to stay stagnant. We were never meant to “arrive” and to stay in the same place forever. Life’s greatest joy comes in creating and being a creation, in creating things that did not exist before …

Mulberry Joy- Felicity eDition

  Helllo friends, Another Texture Tuesday Challenge with Kim Klassen… …and another whirling couple of weeks for me. Do you have those days when you think you have something in the palm of your hand, but really its only in fingertips reach…I know in my mind that lifes little triggers of wisdom come from lifes lessons, we grow stronger, we find our inner selves and voices, and striving for that new job, that new creative thread…these lessons make us grow and become a stronger person. The road is never ever straight, its winding with crossroads, and if we take the wrong turn, we need the courage and strength from the lesson learnt to turn around and start again. Pick up the pieces…and start again. This challenge with Kim was to use one of her fabulous textures: ‘felicity’. It came to mind the Italian word felicità which means joy, happiness and picking these mulberries fresh from the tree was just that. A happy time, full of giggles and laughter, climbing ladders and eating these little morsels …

How they look…

Joy of Love #2 Happy messengers. Even as we’re having sweltering weather outside 40+ degrees. It’s another school day, and you can always almost depend on a child to turn any day after the afternoon school bell rings into a colour of sunshine. Children seem to instinctively know when a hug or kiss and smile is needed. “Hi Zia” ( Zia:Italian for Aunty) what did you do today? Not boring them with my daytime chores. “And what did you do today at school?” A continuous melody of words, giggles,faces and laughter fill the next 10 minutes.These little messengers of magic genius let me forget the outside world and capture my time for 10 minutes to see the glimpses of their playground imagination. And even more smiles with an afternoon icy pole treat.     “A world without children is a world without newness,regeneration,color and vigor”.

Color My World

One of those fun memories,popped into my head, an image,a song and there  it stayed for the rest of the day. Maybe,it had greater meaning? It’s a vivid and clear image of when I was younger,visiting my grandparents on their farm, I’m standing around the piano with my cousins singing while my aunty is playing the piano. I still remember the music sheet, with it’s purple cover…”Colour My World” a Petula Clark song. Do you remember it? Oh, you can color my world with sunshine yellow each day. Oh, you can color my world with happiness all the way Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above! And if you color my world just paint it with your love! Just Color my World. Sunshine yellow Orange blossoms Laughing faces Everywhere Just Color my World. It’s fitting today as I reach another passing year, another 40 something birthday that this song and image came into my mind book of memories. It was a time, fun and happy and though …
