Thankyou Martha…

A Thank You to Martha...

Thankyou…
Martha and Everyone who appreciates ME…
IAM happy to be part of your blogging friendship…
Together we support one another…
Please understand that I choose not to partake in
giving and receiving awards… Thank You…
IAM Barbara x

My humanness hoped that one day one of my fellow bloggers would nominate me for an award too…  That would mean that someone, other than myself found the time to read my writing…  enjoy what they read and enjoyed being part of my life…

And… Martha came along and nominated me for my FIRST award… woow… and I feel so, so honoured…

But… after surfing WordPress, when I first began blogging and saw the TIME it must take up… away from ME… receiving and giving awards to fellow bloggers… I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t take TIME away, from my precious ‘ME TIME’…

…Being a bit of a rebel, IAM also not so good at following rules…

and last but by far not the least… I really hope that sooner rather than later, everyone will LOVE THEIR MAGNIFICENT SELF so much, that they give an award to themself… (not that I don’t love the initiative of flowing awards around WordPress to expand readership and friendship)… but it is important that we love ourself first and this is a great way to show this…

I therefore choose not to participate in receiving and giving awards… knowing my blogging friends will understand… and I will continue to be a loyal friend, reading with interest about our unique life experiences and teachings…

IAM honoured and THANKYOU Martha and Everyone who appreciates me…
The heart-work above is for YOU… from ME with gratitude and honour…

Infinite Love… A poem to my mum…

 Infinite Love
I REMEMBER feeling you for the first time, so soft and cuddly
and feeling a sense of belonging…
I REMEMBER blowing out my first birthday candle, making a mess
and bouncing in an indoor chair…
I REMEMBER playing with my sister outdoors and in our conservatory
watching the caterpillars, chrysalis and butterflies transform in jam-jars…
I REMEMBER taking care of our pet guinea-pig, rabbit and cat
and the pony who still remains in my imagination…
I REMEMBER hearing the piano played, the fingers so fluent on the keys
and my music lessons on the guitar…
I REMEMBER playing with my friends in the park and digging
our garden with my dad and sister…
I REMEMBER trips to my grandparents in the country and in the town
celebrating family birthdays, weddings and christmas..
I REMEMBER the inner joy I always felt at christmas time, santa’s sherry
and mince pie, made possible by you and dad’s love and excitement…
I REMEMBER us going away on holidays, riding donkeys,
making sandcastles and running on the beach and into the sea…
I REMEMBER watching you wash the clothes and dishes, cleaning
the house and you teaching me to iron…
I REMEMBER loving to watch films with my dad and sister
and crackerjack at 5 to 5…
I REMEMBER your love for flowers, the smell of your roses
and admiring your green fingers…
I REMEMBER feeling rebellious, a sense of conflict between me and
the outside world and being called mary-mary-quite-contrary…
I REMEMBER finding it hard to breathe for a while and feeling
an inner urge to explore, find freedom and who I truly was…
I REMEMBER you letting me go… to begin my adventure alone,
my wings expanded in confidence, I took off to discover beyond…
The sprinkle of your love and joy has grown so big within me, flowing over
and becoming one with my own love of self…
Your nurturing is my nurturing, your love is my love, your joy is my joy,
you are and IAM one…
Each morning I awake in a bundle of love, have a sense of joy and
excitement and arise to create another best moment exploring all that is…
I turn my head around and feel your embrace, I gently kiss you
on the cheek and silently thank you for being you…
LOVE IS INFINITE… YOU AND ME… I LOVE YOU 
Your loving daughter Barbara xxx 
Not only for Mothers Day 2013 but for every day…  

My PASSION is my TrIumph…
