Share the Joy Thursday–I Won’t Worry My Life Away…

Simple joys to share…

These flowers for my planter boxes on the front porch,

traditional summer annuals for the North East,

in a palette that I love…

who even puts up with kisses from a certain mischievous little bro.

Sweet joys of life…

I have a feeling that your positive prayers and juju are taking effect, as well as my own,

because I am feeling so much more peaceful and strong this morning.

My vision of what will be tomorrow is very different now that I have let myself be filled up with Trust, Love and Light.

Armed with those Three, and my own Wonderful Kim-ness, I am ready for whatever the day will bring! Guess that’s the Remedy that I needed !

May your day be Worry-free and Joy-Filled, Beautiful Ones !

Big Love !

love the colourful flowers and the tour around the house of all that you love (and all who love you)...prayer makes all the difference in the world and you are going to be FINE...you are going to go in that dental surgery tomorrow and yes, you'll be a wee bit anxious (we all are for things like this) but in your honest heart you know the truth -- you are strong and you are loved. What more do you need??? Lots more ju ju coming at you!! ♥

priti.lisa said...

Kim, you really do have the best posts...I love seeing your little treasures around the house and your pets ( I thought my Bear was the biggest purrer:))
The picture of your husband is fantastic...the light and the shadows, it would be a cool painting. Also your spread in Andrea's book is kimmy-licious!!! Isn't this a fun project?
Best wishes for tomorrow, I will be holding your hand (virtually)
Love you!

LuLu Kellogg said...

I loved seeing your favorite things around your house! That has inspired me to do a post about my favorite things too!

Hope everything goes well tomorrow morning!

Love,
LuLu~*xoxo

Kate said...

Oh I love your journal page, talk about taking fear and turning it around. That is wonderful... Have David post to let us know how it all went.

Meri said...

Love the kitties, bratty or not; the long-suffering pooch; the fuzzy warm hubby; the flower extravaganza; the news that things are looking brighter. But most of all -- I love to imagine the clang of the rocks!

Cheryl said...

Thanks for the tour. It looks like a joy-full house. I especially love your rocks and the clang they make. I could actually hear them falling from your hand into the silver bowl.

You won't be able to stop your mind from going to tomorrow but you don't have to dwell on it. An hour and a half and you will walk out of there knowing it is over. If you keep coming back to today, everything will be fine. Allow yourself to accomplish nothing but that today. Purple pansies are my go-to flower. And nasturiums...That first shot of Chica makes it look like she is looking into a kettle. And the rain is falling here, a few rumblings in the sky and I, too, am trying my hardest to think about this moment.

So much wonderful eye candy and joy in this post. Thank you for a wonderful way to end a very long week! My absolute favorite shot is the one of the rocks in that silver dish. I just brought a silver dish home from my mom and dad's, not knowing what I would do with it. Now, I know. Look for an order from me soon!
