loving life

There are certain things I love about life. Morning coffee and crisp fall air. I love to watch the piliated woodpeckers come to my window feeder, hang upside down and eat to there hearts content. And I love the beautiful sound of the Cedar flute. American Indian culture and Pendleton blankets rank highly in what I love about life. I am pretty much crazy about good writing and great music. An inspired piece of art will bring me to tears. There is nothing better than a good laugh that takes your breath away. I often wonder why as a society we concentrate on the negative, the hurtful and the sadness. There certainly is plenty of that to go around. But I will ask you the same question I asked the boys I work with this week. What makes you happy? Think about these things. Did you know that in your brain the grateful center and the fear center are in the same area. So if you are feeling grateful, you cannot be feeling fearful. So, how about a big does of Thanksgiving! Let your feast this year be more than turkey and dressing, let it be a feast of spirit and love. Make a list each day and if you have a loved one in that list let them know you are thankful to them..... oh and by the way, thank you for reading my blog, you are all incredibly beautiful people. Think I will add you to my list!!


  1. Everything you said is so true ~ We must quit dwelling on all of the negativity and just enjoy life and be grateful. Thank you, my friend.


  2. Well written Peggy, let us journey through life on a flying carpet weaved of love and colored by peace.

    Personally I think that media (tv, radio, newspapers etc etc) could be a huge help IF they changed their focus. Never counted but I think the percent consisting of negative matters in media is extremely high. And all the GOOD stories, all the JOYFUL and HAPPY things happening usually get some seconds at the end. IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY...
    So lets take that flying carpet and journey on as we throw GOOD, JOYFUL and HAPPY seeds all over as we fly :)
