Daily Reminder # 217

Once again there is a picture shortage here in Hancock, so.... 
This is an old photo from when I lived in Lake Huntington.  
I found a forgotten Neale Donald Walsh reminder that I like very much and  think was meant to go to a friend of mine, so that's today's reminder.  A couple of other things first, though. I've been reiki-ing a friend with cancer and sometimes I watch a movie while I do reiki. Sort of serendipitously ran across one called "The Beautiful Truth" today. Very interesting food for thought. One of my nieces is a vegan and as healthy a human as you could hope to meet. (She's the one who created with her husband-ish.)  I don't think I can do this given my life-style, but it's certainly worth at least trying to move towards it. The other thing that's going on here in my head is thoughts about sleep. I continue to be unable (unwilling?) to change my behavior from going to bed very very late but the past week I have been letting myself just stay in bed even though my inner mother thinks it's decadent and evil to do so. Anyway, I've been sleeping/resting for 9 hours a night. I don't know if the 9 is catch-up from too long sleeping for only 7 hours or if it's what I need. I guess time will tell. In any case, I'm feeling better mentally but also my aches and pains seem to be not so bad. We will see. It probably helps the aches and pains that I've been remembering to take Omega 3 again, but I think sleep is part of it.   So anyway, that's a bit of an unfocused ramble, but I wanted to mention those things, so.... Now, on to Neale Donald Walsh and God.

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
...that progress is not measured in miles,
it is measured in inches.
Do not wonder why things are "taking so long." In fact,
everything is rolling out exactly as it needs to, using
not a minute more than Perfection requires.
Rest easy and be at peace. Life is working its magic
even as you take your very next breath.
There. See? You could almost feel the Perfection,
couldn't you...

Love, Your Friend....

HAPPY NEW YEAR Ms. R. !!! :)

Our paths haven't crossed for a bit as we aren't doing the same meme posts any more.

I do you you have a nice year! Congrats on the new TV! And if we don't win the HGTV Dream House in Vermont then I hope that you do. :) XD

Hi Raven. I think you're on to something with the longer sleeps. I haven't slept well in a dog's age, but managed to stay in bed longer this holiday (my inner Puritan also considers staying in bed a most sluggardly sin).

Keep at it, who knows what may happen?

I was vegan for all of 7 months years ago. I tihnk it's much easier now than it was then, thank good ness. Went back to veggiedom after a week away at a summer school that had no vegan food. Years later, slipped back to meat eating when living in lodgings with no cooking facilities so had to eat out all the time.


The latest bit of Harold is here. And now I'm off to see what the words are for Saturday.

I think sleeping longer is helping. It seems to be making a difference for Amoeba, too. He has more energy, less pain, and most of all, a more positive frame of mind!

Oh! I almost forgot! Congratulations on winning Punny Monday!
