{the one with no photo…}

When someone dies, you stop and think about your own life…
Last week, two people I know passed away, both were not my family or in my direct circle of friends,
but both made me very sad. Hence the absence of posting here…

I have said this before and I will say it again….

“Life has it’s own way of taking turns,
making us walk in other directions than we had planned”

M.C. -

Try to Enjoy Your Life.

And believe me when I say,
I try to Enjoy Life every day, but I tend to loose sight of this….

I too forget what is most important to me and more times than I care for to count,
I get upset about little things in my daily life, instead of focusing more on the good things
and to enjoy them more.

Because as someone unknown has stated so perfectly:

“Do not regret growing older.
it is a privilege denied to many”.

And so it is….


To everyone who have left me a comment on my Spring post, thank you!
I always read every comment but had no time to respond separately to each of you.

Let’s enjoy the sunshine and make a toast to new, fresh, Spring filled days!

See you soon my bloggy friends!

    Hi Maureen. When someone dies, it always pulls us up, and we realize that life is, indeed, very fragile. None of us know just how much time we have left and, yes, we should concentrate on all our blessings and try not to dwell on the negative things, or to worry unnecessarily about things that might not happen anyway. This post was a good reminder to us all my friend. Hugs.

    Lieve Maureen, soms is even “pas op de plaats”niet verkeerd, helaas doen we dit pas vaak als er iets naars gebeurt, zoals bij jou dit keer…..elke dag is het weer een “kunst”om bewust te leven, elke keuze bewust te maken en niet te worden verzwolgen door de flow van het snelle leven.
    Ik ben het helemaal met je eens….leef je leven….elke dag!

    Sterkte meis!

    So sorry to hear that. The same thing happened to me recently. It threw me into a gloomy state for a while but then i decided that we really need to make the most of every minute.

    “Do not regret growing older.

    This is something that more people need to remember, I have a very close friend who husband died far too young and she told me how upsetting it can be when people moan about getting older which they do of course!

    Have a lovely weekend and stay positive my blogging friend.
