I’ve found that reading these words and ideas,
imagining each positive sense,
lingering with each positive feeling,
and really taking in the goodness
provides a wonderful sense
of nurturing, hope, encouragement  and comfort.
I hope this sense comes through for others, too.
With this hope….
I share the pages and ideas with all

    Beautiful Kathy! There is power when image, words and music are combined. I will visit the Youtube video again as it’s relaxing.

  2. I find those ideas very soothing and reassuring. I have the last one as suncatchers in windows too…many months of using the ideas. Relaxing sure can feel good. 😀

    There’s a lot of goodness both in us and out there, waiting to be taken in. Thanks for the thoughts.

  4. Such a relaxing video. You are very good at this! I think your friend might be interested in this. Perhaps you can write him a thank you for all that has stayed with you and share the link with him.

    • thank you Georgette.
      Oh, I do share what I make and offer lots of very sincere appreciation…on a regular basis. I have several people, including this person and the friend from my other blog, who have been so encouraging, interested and supportive, as I’ve been learning, creating and starting to share more of what I make…I was extremely “shy” at first, and sometimes still am, so that encouragement has been supportive….and kind appreciation extended back and forth. Aren’t people amazing they way they encourage and support each other?…. wow…a real blessing!
