All the myriad ways that life expresses itself on this amazing planet, from huge trees to tiny microscopic creatures.
Keep to a vegan diet and not waste any food. Change from plastic bottled shower gel and shampoo to soap. Re-use any plastic bags that come my way. Recycle everything that can be recycled. Think before buying – do I need it?
My wish is that everyone would open their eyes to the abuse, suffering and cruelty of factory farming and meat production. That people would find love and compassion in their hearts for all beings 🙏
My body is asking me to be kind to it and rest more. I have an illness which is very disabling and I get bored and impatient with my limitations.
I know that I am part of, and connected to, everything in existence.
If I can feel joyful about something during my day it changes what is an ordinary, mundane day into a beautiful day. It is always surprising how such small things can change one’s whole day and the joy I feel can also change someone else’s day if it rubs off on them!
I show respect for others by treating them as I would wish to treated; with love, kindness and understanding.
I am being supported everyday by care workers who come to my home and make sure I am safe and well and make my meals so I have the food I want to eat. The connection I have with them really enriches my life and maybe theirs too?
Life, in all it’s forms, is awe-inspiring. The more I get to see, mostly through TV, the more amazed I am. And for us, as humans, to have the awareness and intelligence to be able to appreciate, experience and, somewhat understand some of it, is such an exciting privilege.
When I read the Word for Today I thought how important it is to actually say to people that we love them or appreciate them, not just assume that they know this because we are smiling or being kind. A loving, appreciate word goes a long way towards another’s happiness 😊
Kathy, you made me chuckle 😊 xx
Dear Carla, I hope you soon feel better and will be able to enjoy some of the holidays.

Wise words, Kevin, thank you.
Aww Michele! That is so heartwarming. Thanks for posting this, I’m going to share it. xx
Dear Antoinette, I understand your suffering. I too get migraines that go on for days and it does grind you down doesn’t it? I hope this one will soon pass and it will be a long time before the next monster.
Love and hugs ((xx))
