This life is a wonderful gift..accept it, embrace it.

It starts with a new day .. wake up and greet it.

Life is a challenge .. take it head on, and meet it.

Full of opportunity .. use it?, don’t waste it.


This Life is a mystery .. unfold it, solve it.

It starts with meaning .. wake up and understand it.

Life is a goal ..take it head on, and achieve it.

Full of promise ..fulfil it?, but keep it.


This life is a tragedy .. face it, except it.

It starts with pain .. wake up and help numb it.

Life is a struggle .. take it head on and fight it.

Full of sorrow .. sorry?, just overcome it.


This life is precious .. hold it, treasure it,

It starts with hope .. wake up and feel it.

Life is a choice .. take it head on, and make it.

full of knowledge .. use it, don’t abuse it.


This Life is adventurous .. enjoy it, explore it.

It starts with a duty .. wake up and perform it.

Life is love .. take it full on, and love it.

Full of beauty .. praise it?, and behold it.


That life is life .. live it, learn and grow

Life is good .. be good with all that you know.

The SOUND of the RAIN !

It will perhaps seem strange to you, but for some days, I’m dying to hear the sound of  the rain! Yes you got me right, you know, when it rains and you hear the clicking or splashing of raindrops on the roof and against the windows, I miss it a lot.


Let me explain: we arrived in Edmonton late July 2013, since that time until October, if I’m not mistaken, it has rained 3 or 4 times. Then winter  brutally came in November. It is now 5 months and we had 2 freezing rain that I call dangerous and impossible to appreciate, because, when there is snow and it rains, the snow becomes icy and terribly slippery, source of  falls and accidents .

So I would love to see  the snow completely melted  and hear the rain … I guess our friends from Belgium or Africa etc., may be shocked to hear that, I know some people who are tired of the rain, I understand you! Maybe we should exchange situations: send me your rain and we will gladly send you our snow. In fact, do not forget to add your spring or summer temperatures!

Beauty !! 

A little advice to you dear friends who have very positive temperatures: please, stop and listen, appreciate and contemplate the life reborn (the flowers that bloom, sunny blue sky, the rain as a contribution, the nature that sings the greatness of the Creator …) and do not let the “sick of the rain, the heat …” hide the grace to see our Perfect Creator: God in the beauty of His creation!

Happy Spring friends!


 Is believing when everyone doubt,

To hope when everybody else despairs,

 Be in a good mood when everyone is boring and difficult.


 It is smiling and be happy when everyone is grumpy,

 To be happy with what left instead of crying what is lost,

Continue to show love in a hostile environment.


To comfort rather than self-pity,

 Be a support instead of seeking a support,

 See the beauty despite the poor and the ugly …

 What is extraordinary to you?

 Now, your turn to complete 😉
