Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

Wishing you the very best on this Mother’s Day.

I am a proud Momma of two adult kidlets and proud Gamma of two Grand Kidlets.

If you are celebrating Mother’s Day in your world, enjoy to the fullest.   ♥

We Just Might

“If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction.” ~Martin Kornfeld


It is feeling more and more like Spring has arrived in my world. The blossoms are out and the sun is shining real warm. I took this photo while on my walk this afternoon. I love the sounds and smells of Spring.

It would be beautiful to see more acts of kindness in our daily lives.

One kind word can change someone’s entire day.

Encourage someone.


Give someone a hug.


Say, “I love you” to someone you love.

Say, “please” and “thank-you”- and really mean it.

Kindness is contagious.

Have a really nice weekend and don’t forget to share some kindness.

Make it a Habit

Motivation gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

It never gets easier, you just get better.

I am an active baby boomer and only want to inspire others to be active as they get older.

If I am not at the gym, I am enjoying the outdoors. I love to do some brisk walking and a whole lot of running.

Exercise builds self-esteem.

If you are not into exercising, I strongly recommend that you give it a try.

Exercise lifts your mood. Grab some endorphins. 

It works wonders for me.

Exercise prevents muscle loss as we age.

Stay strong as you can!  

I may not be the strongest, but I am working my hardest!   😉

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” ~Helen Keller

Have a terrific Sunday!   :)

My Valentine

You Make my life complete. Happy Valentine’s Day to the life of my life.


Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you that are celebrating today.

Have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend filled with love and laughter.

You don’t have to wait till Valentine’s Day to tell someone you love them.

The Biggest Change

The biggest change for most people is EXERCISE. It is the secret to good health.


If you rest you rust. ~Helen Hayes


Photos taken in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada.  These beautiful photos were taken by my wonderful niece, M. White. Thank-you so much for allowing me to use your photos. Auntie appreciates you.

Exercise is the GREAT key to aging.

Do what you can for your health as you age and hopefully it will keep your aches and pains to a minimum.

My daughter had the day off today, and it was pleasure for us to share some GYM time together.

Just love that.

We leave the gym with a big smile and a huge hug.

Be your own kind of beautiful  :)

Good Deeds

From Coffee News~

A heroine who has been dubbed Chinese RedBud Woman has been discovered in China. The unidentified female wears a bright blue mask, along with a black leather outfit.

She is becoming popular in Beijing and has been caught on tape doing her good deeds. These deeds include approaching poor elderly people and the homeless to give them food and clothing.

So far, no one knows the real identity of the woman who has refused to give her name when asked.

Instead, she appears into the night looking for the next person who needs help.

“To do more for the world than the world does for you, that is success.” Henry Ford

I often tell my hubby that if I were to win tons of money I would love to be a ‘secret Angel’ and surprise different people with gifts.

What a beautiful feeling that must be for the mysterious Chinese woman!

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~Leo Buscaglia
