Hope everyone is ok after the snowstorm!! Some people have been missing here for awhile, hope to see you soon again! – Ursula
Good morning everybody, last evening I felt a string 😉 no: strong connection with all you American people across the big pond, especially with Jewish people … I heard and saw the Klezmatics on stage! A fabulous concert, and I was impressed how people were enthusiastic and a few women started dancing at the end of the concert although the concert hall was quite small, ‘infecting’ everybody with their joy! To the point that the Klezmatics, who sang about ‘brider’ (brothers, which amused me seeing only women dancing) finally changed the text to ‘schwestern’ (sisters) which I had already said to my husband 😃!
Yiddish language is very interesting for me (as you know I’ m a language person), because it sounds like kind of a very old German language in my ears (but I can’t understand everything).
Anyway, great and very touching concert although there was a woman missing (Lisa had to perform elsewhere). One moment was very special: a song in Aramaic language, which as one of the musicians said was a ‘holy moment’ 🙏. Love to all, Ursula 💞
Hello lovely people, especially Debbie, Aine, Manda, Anna, Diane, Pilgrim … (hope I have mentioned all) Thank you for your nice comments on my Women’s Day picture, and for your good wishes & prayers for my CT. Sorry that I haven’t been able to answer these last days. I had so many things to do at home, clearing up before someone came to help me clean the house. Then my young son fell ill and stayed home from school, was better and then fell ill again, with high fever. My mum came because I wanted to go dancing with my husband (planned some weeks ago already), and we did, but we were both tired and we have a difficult time together at the moment. Today, my son is still at home while he seemed ok yesterday … I will go to the doctor with him today.
So it seems I don’t have the time to really relax before I go to my blood control this week … but I will do all I can to care well for myself.
So I hope you understand why I couldn’t answer to all your enthusiastic comments & compliments … Thanks again! I think of you and hope you are all fine (or better, like Debbie without the migraine!).
Thinking of Cintia, Charla and Ben who haven’t posted anything for quite a long time. Hope you are well!
Welcome to the ‘new ones’ on this site, too!
Have a good week everyone! – Ursula <3 <3
Thank you Anna! Hope you have the time for enjoying some music this week (end)! A presto, baba (bye , as we say here in Vienna) 😊
Thank you eme! Your post is wonderful! Enjoy spring and music and party!
Dear Manda, thank you for regularly sharing your gratefulness moments!
Prayers for your friend T, her baby and family! So sorry for them …
Welcome Maria! May you have an inspring journey with gratefulness!
Thank you, SYBW! Now I know where your beautiful icon is coming from! I too have loved Chartres since I have known it, but I haven’t been there for a long time. As I have a most beautiful book with spiritual texts and photos of Chartres, I will have a look at it – thanks for reminding me!
Hi Manda, please see above, in my post to Anna! Yesterday, I had another joy: We saw/ heard the Klezmatics in concert, on stage! A fabulous event with enthusiastic people who even started to dance at the end of the concert even though there was almost no room to dance (except dancing in your seat, which I did quite often during the pieces ;-)) I love Yiddish music, and the Klezmatics are wonderful! Have a wonderful day and week, Manda! Are you doing well in your new job? – Love, Ursula
LIebe Anna, grazie per sempre pensare a me! Thank you for always thinking of me and answering although you have very little time yourself! Yes, my son is better as I said above and I hope it will stay that way!
My husband and I do “classical” dancing from time to time, that is standard and Latin. On Saturday, they played much Rumba, Cha Cha, Tango, Jive and Boogie as well as Rock’n’roll, but my husband and I are better at Waltz (valse), English Waltz and Foxtrott!
Last year we started attending a course because what we had learned at the age of 16/17 (when youngsters often learn dancing here in Austria in a dancing school) had been almost forgotten .. but I had problems with my ankle and we couldn’t continue, which is a pity! – Now I have to go! A presto, Anna, bis bald! – Ursula
Dear Diane, thank you so much for your warm and loving words which touch me deeply! I am very lucky to always have been “carried” when times were hard … and I continue to feel blessed and carried! This community plays an important part in all that. I am so grateful for you thinking of me and lighting a candle – so grateful for your support, Diane! I will light a candle that the snowstorm will pass as smoothly as possible and leave your country intact! When stormy weather is announced here in my region I am always nervous and try to protect myself and my family, so I understand perfectly that you “hide” at home … I will light a candle for you, too! Hope you can enjoy a cup of tea inside, Diane! – with much love, Ursula
Thank you Debbie! My son is feeling better, and I hope it stays that way! – Enjoy your day, Debbie! Hope you can relax after the migraine has passed!!
Chad, thank you for sharing this cheerful icon (I don’t know what to call it) … a drawing? Anyway, it “made my morning”! :.o) Ursula
Manda, it is amazing how you always describe with the most beautiful words all the moments and things you are grateful for!! You are a model of gratefulness for me! Thank you Manda! – Ursula
Dear Azu, I’m with Mary! Such an uplifting post! Thanks for sharing … I imagine your bright day! – Ursula
Dear Debbie, hope you are doing better!! Enjoy being here and “catching up” smoothly … 🙂 Ursula
Manda, I wish you the very best for your healing! Also, I wish you to sleep well … I know how difficult it is to stay awake all night, ‘tossing and turning’ as you call it, and not be able to stop thinking about so many things … I have learnt to imagine and visualize light and healing for my body, to provide healing touch to my body through my hands, and to call Jesus & angels &God to help me heal (if that is not your belief, call whoever can help you). Much love to you, dear Manda! – Ursula
Malag, sorry for your loss! Thank you for sharing your special moment when you felt the breaths of your mom being yours and everyone’s, and that there was no separation. It sounds beautiful to me! Peace to your mom and yourself! – Ursula
Thanks for sharing this beautiful story, Kevin! It seems to me that it is one example which fits perfectly with yesterday’s Word for the Day: ‘The fact that we are here and that I speak these words is an attempt to break that silence and bridge some of those differences between us, for it is not difference which immobilizes us, but silence. And there are so many silences to be broken.’ Audre Lorde
Thank you, Juan!
