First to Awaken in my Garden

This year Spring may be taking it’s time to join us in Ontario but my little crocus’ have been peeking out. I am grateful that they are reminding us that while slow, spring is starting to awaken.

Not to young to change the world

My children were fortunate to have some amazing, caring teachers in elementary school. These teachers taught them their A,B,Cs and 1,2,3s but more importantly taught them that they can be the good in this world. ~~It truly takes a village to raise a child.

It’s been a few years since my kids were in this teacher’s class but I’m lucky enough to keep in touch with her via Facebook.

I am very moved and inspired by how she empowers her kids to ‘be the good’.

I have such hope for our next generation. And I am immensely grateful for those who give kids the encouragement to ‘be the good’; to those who hold the mirror up for our kids showing them how bright they are.

Love the Place you’re in !

What’s not to love about where I live?!  ❤ Ontario Here’s a tiny peek of a corner of our beautiful province.

Every season along the Niagara Parkway is enchanting.

You can spend years enjoying nature. The flowers, leaves and all the delicious fruits!

Some of the best places to immerse yourself in nature are our Provincial Parks. My favourite is Rock Point, Provincial Park.

I am so grateful for the beautiful province that I call home. ❤

Focus: WP Photo Challenge

I’ve always been fascinated with the determination and focus that bees have. They spend their lives collecting pollen from the flowers in their area…even the ones that are too small to hold their weight!

I’m still not sure which photo I like best. The cropped photo, focusing on the bee or the one with the out-of-focus background. (taken with Asus Zenphone 3 Laser phone)

Grateful for… Three Things Thursday

The purpose of Three Things Thursday is to celebrate the things that made us smile during the past week. I’m meshing that with my Grateful for … post this week as I’m always grateful for those moments that make me smile. (and I’m short on blogging time)
