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.

Rain!

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!

Love In Pink!


I remember all those Valentine’s days we celebrated together with my Marc. Each celebration was something different, but always retained the magic of this special day!

The most memorable Valentine’s Day was in 2010 when we were in Burkina Faso (West Africa). That morning, February 14, 2010, we discovered our courtyard covered of pink flowers. It was magical even for our children (I mean two of them: Dara and Michael)

This year, our Valentine’s celebration will be magical as well: snow-covered, with -5°C to -10°C according to Edmonton weather’s broadcast. It will also be special because my husband has to work that day from 5 pm to 1 am. Do you follow me, if our love does not keep his magic every day, what different will make a Valentine’s Day celebration?

Let’s be positive: if I can not get magic of love this February 14, 2014 between 5 pm and 1 am, my heart is still full of love to share with those around me who lack it everyday. Come on, you, all my friends and our Adventure fellows, Happy Valentine’s Day! We love you!

Extraordinary…


 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 😉
