How fortunate we were to be able to enjoy some time together on this Father’s Day!
Big gatherings weren’t allowed yet, but small ones were valued even more as restrictions were being lifted. Nothing fancy or grande, just some takeout and deliveries to share with the fathers in our lives.
I hope that all the fathers, godfathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, and uncles in the world had a great day!
This last Easter long weekend, our family went to visit the final resting places of our family members and friends. This time I decided to purchase white chrysanthemums to bring with me. The weather was beautiful and sunny, so we were able to spend some time together as a family.
It was a lovely day to dedicate to our beloved family and friends.
What Is Family Day? Besides being a holiday for schools, it’s a good reminder to focus on the family. The truth is there are those of us out there who do not want to be reminded of their family. Some families do not have a happy history. So, why think about them? Cutting off toxic relationships especially with family is the most difficult and painful. However, as Louise Hay says….
“We are all family, and the planet is our home.”
Day by day, no matter how difficult it may be, I try to use the positive affirmation—
“I attract only healthy relationships. I am always treated well.”
Life isn’t always easy and the very same people who are causing grieve in your lives are often the hurt ones in the past. It is not a simple task to forgive or forget. On the contrary, I understand that even taking baby steps towards forgiving those sad individuals can help myself to release a little bit of the burden off of my heart.
Remember that every experience, good or bad, I need to accept and appreciate the learning that comes with it. I also value the caring relationships that help me stay grounded and loved.
