Bliss of the day: This little bit of beauty.
Can you spot the grapes?

Surprise… they taste like wine.
Bliss on a branch!

More tomorrow.

Lovemore,

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 267 :: put on a happy face

29 Sep
Bliss of the day: This face!

It’s Gibbs. The larger than life one-hundrend pound poodle. He’s so big he’s kind of more like my step-brother-dog. And with all the surgery, hospital, hustle and bustle going on around here, he is unfazed.

And that’s kind of a good reminder for everyday life too. The power of a happy face.
Such bliss.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 266 :: angels in waiting

28 Sep
Bliss of the day: my father’s surgery went well. He is well, all is well…and we are all exhausted.

Like with any surgery, we spent most of the day waiting. Waiting, waiting and then more waiting. So I thought this statue in the hospital’s rose garden was fitting for the day. As we were waiting with angels sitting in the wings.

Which reminds me of this…
Being on the other side of surgery is bliss.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 265 :: red moon sunset

27 Sep

 

I’m home.
Being home means so many things, but one that never fails to impress me is the big, wide open sky and the sunsets that come tumbling after. We didn’t see the Supermoon tonight but we did see some Super Sunset colors on display.

As if Mother Nature was showing off in a pre-supermoon concert. No moon from our view tonight but enough color to bring on the bliss.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 264 :: hgtv bliss

26 Sep
I’m sitting here watching HGTV with my cousin, Amy.

And watching HGTV is a perfectly fun outlet for me. Almost blissful really. It’s like playing house vicariously through other people. Which reminds me of playing with my Barbies as a little girl. Something Amy and I would do together all the time.

As little girls, we even packed all our Barbie clothes for a big family vacation in one suitcase, and our clothes in another suitcase. It was a solid plan, to save room and to be able to take all the Barbie accessories we would need on the road. It was a great plan, until we forgot one of the suitcases. The one with our clothing in it.

We had to borrow clothing from family and friends, everyone pitched in so we could have a change of clothing on the trip. The hardest part was finding a bathing suit (especially for my height and long legs) which we both ended up borrowing from others. I know, “gross” is exactly what I”m thinking now too… but back then it was incredibly important to go to the Hydrotube with all the other kids and we would have done anything to tag along.

Including wearing my first two-piece suit. Borrowed from another cousin’s friend. I thought it was pretty fashionable in a cool, older girl sort of way. My father on the other hand thought he was going to have a heart attack at the thought of me walking around a public pool in a bikini years more mature than my pre-teen age.

And that, tonight, along with Amy’s laughter over the memory of it all, brings me more bliss that you can imagine. Family memories. Our childhood packing faux pas. Especially on the eve that head home to be with my father for his surgery.

And that reminds me…
Family is bliss…. in memories, in laughter, in togetherness and in so many more important ways.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 263 :: in a world…

25 Sep

 

Happy Feel Good Friday 😉 
Over here, I just watched the movie, In A World. It’s a good Friday night flick. One that makes me remember how much bliss can occur by unplugging. Even if it’s just for the length of a movie.

And now I can’t keep saying…In A World….In a Really Deep Voice.

What are you watching?

More tomorrow.

Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 262 :: PJ moments

24 Sep

 

Bliss moment of the day: comfy pajamas.

I don’t know if it’s thoughts of Christmas morning…
Or snuggling under the covers…
Maybe it’s the comfort from Mama Sling when I was a child sick in bed…
Or pillow fights from teenage pajama parties…
Possibly going to class in college with only a care for comfort…
Or sleeping in on Saturday mornings…

Whatever it is …. I LOVE MY PAJAMAS!

So tonight, I end this day with a thought of PJ’s.
And there seems to be promise in that.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 261 :: a little bit of listening

23 Sep

Bliss moment of the day: a little Songza.

I’m loving this app. Music based on mood… time of day… activity.
Is it too much to call it a little slice of Bliss?
I think not.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 260 :: relishing the funny

22 Sep
This hit me tonight in my Aha Place. I’m not sure why it’s taken so long… but here it is …laughter.

It could have happened while I was working and listening to The Tonight Show.
Or maybe we are just in a time of rediscovering our laughs. Take a look at this:


We seem to be in a trajectory and upward swing of laughter. And I’m not sure what that means. Other than this. Laughter feels good.

And maybe that’s the easiest path to Bliss? Regardless, it’s worth exploring and laughing along the way.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore, 
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 259 :: true friends

21 Sep
This found me tonight. And it made me think of my true sing-at-the-top-of-my-lungs friends. (You know who you are and I’m so glad you are in my life.)

And, thinking of those friends, more than anything, brings me a little bit of bliss.

More tomorrow.

Lovemore, 
Jamie
