Powerful Moments & Blessings

These magnificent flowers arrived this week, and oh what a blessing and lovely message was attached to them,
from our warrior here on this page
and frequent commenter!
I am honored and just thrilled
to be so highly thought of
I thank you, I appreciate you,
you just tickle me to life with your comments, your dance, your zest!
And oh do those flowers fill my eyes with beauty, and fill my soul with beauty.
“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.”
Steve Maraboli
I am blessed!
Just as Patti Labelle sings it,
with the same emotion, feeling, and power,
Just about everyone that knows me,
surely knows my love of flowers..
my senses just explode
with fragrance, texture, beauty…
and those butterflies that were light and inserted there I thought just awesome; especially after the spirit was in it at
Landon Korabek’s OneLOVE jamfest
sent that butterfly to the parents as three little birds was sung on the 12th across the stage dancing.
Thank you so very much!
It just makes me “tap my feet”,
get into my “happy place”
and get my day goin with an attitude of great gratitude for all that ever has been, all that is, and all that is yet to be!
That is my Olivia’s sweet feet moving to her own music as she was in a clarinet sound off up there in Maryland awhile back, but you get the idea here!
Did ya buy that Facebook stock that hit the market yesterday?
OR did ya attend the “little wedding of Mr Mark Z instead?
Ah bet that new bride had some papers to sign before saying, “sure I do!”
Best of all things Mark Z, may you know true bliss!
So the fire is burning here, the names are in the prayer bowl, the sage is lit…
Prayers are going up
for all who enter here and for
I join my fire with so many others, light the sage and its smoke is goin UP for prayer, for healing, for strength.
In knowing that YOU are being held UP today, and thought of fondly
as the warriors that YOU are
wherever you are.
YOU are on my mind and in my heart… and I thank you.
For those in the prayer bowl,

Take the time

  1. I’m reading this on MonAmi-Monday, but it’s all good! 🙂
    I am Blessed, indeed! Got my mind right, got my workout on, and I’m feeling good!

    Beautiful post, warrior woman! Thanks for throwing up those prayers for healing and strength. Our world community is in need of it on an ongoing basis, as are our leaders, and those that tend to our wounds and hurts on a regular basis. From the UPS man to the undertaker, and everyone in between, there can never be too much encouragement and/or prayer.

    Keep sweet! 🙂

    • How lovely to see you, to read your beautiful words and honored by them! be well, stay blessed and know you are held up as well! it’s a joy to feel your love!!! all the best to you and yours dear one…

  2. Oh me ohhh my, we got some warriors on a Sunday hoopin and hollering here … what joyous noise I'm hearing!

    Just in time to remind all to not block the blessings, to laugh til i almost cried over FIRM and the taxi, and the signing bills and “needy seniors” when she was having what must of been a moment this day… ultimately tickled to death that she was out and about I'm sure… dot/mom/cob rushing to defend her and out and about grilling on a new grill with the fam in Southwest VA… while mamapatti is confusing us to death with her kind and funny self!

    yes the flowers were for MEEEE not the 4 leggeds, and oh how I am enjoying them each moment MOMENT OF THEM.

    Now time to remind all to get those candles ready, to light them up for our Thomas O'Brien in Texas,

    then One for EE in Colorado who celebrated a birthday while so very ill out there and we are praying for her and hope that she too feels the lights and the warmth of care and thoughts from all warriors tonight and the days ahead….

    Now I shall get ready to pull a oshkosh/mamapatti
    and spend 2 hours watching 60 minutes unless I get distracted at some point during it and just gaze at my appreciating and loving flowers…

    blessings to all here and there and just everywhere.
    yep that is me who received those gorgeous flowers, can u smell em?


  3. Hello and back home. The taxi is parked for the nite and YES went out to eat @ a neat place where you can sign a dollar bill and staple it to the wall of the restaurant
    I printed a bold FIRM and kept on going. The beach is calling…..gotta go

  4. To have such a “brilliant” mind, you sure assume a lot, don' ya??
    You assume they were for YOU??? With l dead florist,and the 2nd one, (who I broke his nose ahead of time if those butterflies got knocked off some where along the way) I had enough problems without being accused of something this morning!!
    Did not require the thank you in such a manner, but guess you just felt bad over pinning something on someone who has “no clue” about how anybody in their right mind could have appreciation for you. Wait!! I have an answer for my own delima.
    RIGHT MIND- I think that might be the answer! Do I gotta explain that, or did it come out right? In case it didn't come out right–
    RIGHT MIND = Appreciation for ya. The other mindedness? I ain't gonna touch that one!!!

  5. To have such a “brilliant” mind, you sure assume a lot, don’t ya???? You “assume” they were for YOU??? With 1 florist dead, and the 2nd one,( who I broke his nose ahead of time if those butterflies got knocked off some where along the way) — I had enough problems without being accused of something this morning!!! Did not require the thank you from you in such a manner, but guess you just felt bad over pinning something on someone who has “no clue” about how anybody in their right mind could have appreciation for you. Wait !! I have an answer for my own delima. “RIGHT MIND” —– I think that might be the answer!!! Do I gotta explain that, or did it come out right??? In case it didn’t come out right—–Right mindedness = appreciation for ya. The other mindedness? I ain’t gonna touch that one!!!!

  6. Hello Dr. Sherry and friends here. The flowers were lovely and such a nice thought to send them to someone so special to so many. Loved Olivia's tapping toes there. Keep on tapping those toes Olivia! Prayers always for Thomas and Mom Debbie there in Texas and others mentioned and listed here. EE, hope you are feeling much better. Irene, happy to see your words today. Be safe on your journey – you are a Blessing. Busy weekend and a busy Sunday for me, just got home and back out in a few moments – nice family time. Wishing each of you a Blessed and Special Sunday with joy for your day. /Sandy♥

  7. OH THOSE FLOWERS ARE AMAZING as is that beautiful woman standing beside them, I can only guess that candle I see is for Thomas the warrior I read about as well. Doc u do keep it real and I'm spending this day wrapped in moments and passin the blessings on. what a lady that is to show you some love in such a glorious way, I wish i had thought of that first!
    I would like to take two tylenol and then get in your head for all the walks you have made and al the poeple u hold UP through they years and more, i just cant get enough and all serve to remind me just how blessed I should be and really am often getting caught up in the doings.
    TODAY IS MY GIFT, and then I listend to the song you gave us with Patti and WOW

    hope Irene lisents to it again and has herself a break from doing so much for others and does for herself for a few days counting the blessings!
    I think she shoudl open the FIRM TAXI myself!!! she sure does spend a lot of time on the roads doesnt she? wonder if she gets to eat out too?

    prasyers to all mentioned and for those who need some extra sunshine in that blessing and moments reminder.

    STOMPIN here with thanks doc

  8. Olivia, keep those toes tapping. Wishing you were here. You are growing up much too fast. The feet look as long as Kamryn feet. Love to you and hope we can see you this summer.

  9. Anonyous, what are you talking about? Irene is one of the most wonderful people you would ever meet. She is honest, fun and a person that helps people and loves what she does. I had the priviledge of meeting her when I was visiting in Florida. Give her a break, be nice. Thomas to you and your Mom hang in there better days are coming. I applaud both of you for sharing your story with Dr. SES and her with us. I almost think I know you. Your beautiful eyes shining holding your precious dog tells us you are a kind soul and a fighter. Keep it going. Blessings to your dear sweet Mom and I know she holds you tight to her heart. Flowers were beautiful, is that a statue of Patti LaBelle sitting beside it? I can just about smell the flowers. Blessings to Thomas, Deb and all of your fans here on this page and all over. Keeping all in my prayers. God Bless the President and his family. We are thinking of our soldiers and their families daily and especially this Memorial day. Blessings to all.

  10. BEautiful flowers and great blessings to all here doc! wow, u hit me where i live again. pryaers going to all and to that warror Tom and his Mom in Texas. I wept as I read his words, viewed his tattoo and felt the blessings. I have my candles lit for him also.

    what is up with Irene this morning? sounds like some martydom going on unless you were hog tied beind the wheel of your car… “needy seniors” certainly does not sound like deeds of kindness done out of love and compassion as much as someone who wants accolades of doing for those who want a hand to extend in friendship . as doc reminds us to keep it real, have to tell you i sawa where that comment seemed laden with anger and loaded with you not wanting to do .

    blessings and all the best.
    holding your family up in prayers doc, sure hope everyting is ok with you and yours.

    be well warriors.

  11. “Sun” day on the page.
    My prayers and blessings to everyone mentioned the last 3 days.
    Nice flowers, indeed.
    I am taking the time…. to think, breathe, stomp, pray and be all I can be in this crazy world of fires, earthquakes, tropical storms, threats, idiots, etc.
    Spare me, cause today I have 2 round trips to and from St. Pete Beach. Another favor in the world of needy seniors ! FIRM and tired.
