Papa’s World – Good Morning and have a great day !

Each day – I try to be positive

My blogs each day are for the most part a POSITIVE in a very Negative news day !

My criteria – follows three rules of thought for me.

One – share a smile ! Two – share a good feeling ! Three – be POSITIVE !

NORMAL ?

I could be a bit normal – but – I guess I am not – however – I see normal !

I see stories – I ask questions – I write them down – I memorize them.

My MOTTO

I live each day as it will be my last –

I plan ahead – I organize – I DREAM !

I call it ” LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS ” one day at a time !

One of my favorites

George Carlin –

one of my favorites – always thought provoking –

He told a lot of truth – and made me think !

I think this fits today’s World

I could write on POLITICS each and every day –

endless – but I choose not to.

Instead – I look for gratitude –

I see rights and wrongs

I yearn for peace

And I look upward for guidance

I hope this explains my reasons for blogging –

my innermost thoughts.

Blogging is a way of reaching out –

extending thoughts and pleasant ideas.

To make a difference for one day in your life –

to be happy .

Sit back – grab a drink –

mine is coffee –

and just enjoy a moment to feel good before your day starts.

Then at the end of the day –

be reminded –

that in this blog – there is peace.

My three rules –

why I write each day !

Thank you and go in peace.

Papa’s World – eating healthy is not the only thing – flowers

We walk – we eat healthy – but the mental part is also important !

Our roses out front

A healthy body also has to have a healthy mind – at least mine does !

So – when we moved into our house thirteen years ago –

I started digging up – replanting – moving – shrubs – putting in trees

( 3 Crepe Myrtles ) and numerous rose bushes – flowers that came back year after year.

Crepe Myrtle out front

I had to dig these trees on my hands and knees – being so many rocks ! With that being said – when they bloom a bright ruby red – I just love them – and it all was worth it !

Ninety five per cent comes back

Flowers and color do a lot for my mind and peaceful thoughts.

But – as you get older – weeding kills your back – at least mine !

So – this year – I bought the mulch from the boy scouts – and actually paid them to spread it around – 25 bags !

It was well worth it and half the cost of anyone else.

Flowers and flags

These roses will bloom off and on until Fall – most everything in the beds comes up each year.

Walking home – when coming in sight of the house- gives me a great calming thought – seems like any stress just goes away –

and that is for my mental being.

Front steps and door

Sherry always plants the planters around the house – in back -the patio and the front porch.

So – when people visit – the visual of flowers – the welcome mat – sitting on the front porch or in the enclosed patio – brings calm – that is why we do it .

The back patio and Tower Gardens

Each year – in the back – we plant flowers and the Tower Gardens –

which provide our vegetables daily.

In front of these are the other two Crepe Myrtles that I hand planted – all the trees and bushes here I also planted.

Yesterday’s harvest from our strawberry patch

We also grow our own strawberry’s – enough to provide us each morning for breakfast while they last.

Living a healthy lifestyle – to reduce stress – we plant – we grow and produce vibrant colors all Spring – Summer and Fall.

We actually grow even in Winter inside our garage.

For a stress relief – try flowers – smell them – watch them grow –

it can do wonders for your mental health.

I hope this blog helps you today – #livinglifetotheplus http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

Papa’s World – The final walk and then goodbye – Jo & Paul

Jo and Paul

It was both a happy and sad day – our final walk together –

and – this walk was on their bucket list –

for I had posted many times the pictures of Sherry and I walking this path.

They found it beautiful as we do

and requested that we walk along the creek !

Where we live
Brambleton Va.

It was a quiet morning –

a little cool – around 56 degrees –

but with lots of sunshine

and soon the jackets came off !

Jo Paul Sherry
at the top of the trail

During the visit – Paul and I had discussions

the politics of the day

the discord and unending drama that happens each and every day.

The stress is not worth it.

I described to him my three critiques for every day –

One – post a smile

Two – post a good thought –

three No Politics !

Sherry Tom Jo

And those are my rules I follow –

I also write about my life – family and friends –

and I try to do that daily –

Jo and Sherry

I do this to capture my thoughts –

through pictures and words –

So after I am gone –

a record remains where friends and family can read –

where those memories are preserved –

My thought on life
Sherry and Jo

We discussed stress – we discussed life –

Paul Jo Sherry

We discussed life in general and living

We discussed how no matter what we post –

the only difference it makes is to our selves !

Jo and Sherry

heading back home

Change has to come from with in –

And no matter how we feel

we can not change someone else.

Today – we make a change by voting

and then vote again when it is time
