A Family Affair a wedding is in the air August 12 2017

 

Celebrating a bridal shower with family and friends

Matthew and I

 

The future Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Delisle Matthew and Lauren

In just a short few weeks we will have one of our 4 boys getting married. These moments are both exciting and hard for this moma bear! The fact that your children grow up and become exceptional young men, we encourage they to be good to others, as well as to themselves. Hopefully they can find someone who they can share every moment with, who truly loves them for themselves and be able to enjoy each other’s company.

Matthew and Lauren met while in high school, being together, getting to know one another and getting those calls in the middle of the night that one of them needs help or has been hurt, has been nothing but scary in those moments, but also lucky that they have found each other. They suit one another. Both are sports orientated, both are caring and loving and family orientated. Although sometimes they may not want to be around family, they know they can always rely on us on any given moment for anything.

Love is unconditional, internally inside and out, makes your hands sweaty and your heart hurt when they are not there anymore. Love is such an emotion that together they can grow, mature and make a life with each other that will make any parent proud.

As we begin to countdown the weeks into days, we take the celebrations as they come, for some are no longer here on earth to share these moments with us. We never take anything or anyone for granted and enjoy every day as it comes.

Congratulations to my son Matthew Delisle and finding your soul mate, Lauren Cartwright!!

Congratulations Lauren Cartwright for surviving our families and becoming a beautiful addition!!

Christmas Wishes and Holiday Blues

 

unnamed (1)

First off let me start off by saying,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years

to everyone near and far!!!!

What a time to celebrate your accomplishments, learn from your mistakes, reacquaint yourselves with family and friends, perhaps even gain some new friends or business colleague’s.  Take this holiday season to remember what this truly means to you, within your heart and soul. Share that with all  you meet no matter the season. We are all on this earth to be kind to one another.

Although it is Christmas there are many people, family and friends, people who you may never know personally, who deal with anxiety, depression, SAD, random stressful thoughts that my be good or bad, hard times can actually fall on everyone no matter the level of pay scale they may be. Be aware how you are treating others, make an attempt to get to know people, or even to make yourself better, so that you have a better understanding on how things are in the world. Experience and knowledge are the keys to improvements, and the willingness to change for the good, not just for yourself but for others too.

Life experiences, the change of the times, how we look at the world, which is ever so changing so quickly right before our eyes!! Comes into play with everyone. Some people will have to relocate for work, have been fired or had to quit, lost their job for closures, or simply for the fact that it may have been something that was just needed to change for them, LIFE is hard. Getting help, asking for help, and participating in the help are all aspects we all need to work on together. Recognise the signs when someone tells you that they may need help, communication is key, non communication had many forms. A look, a reaction, body language, disposition, visible stress. Sometimes we are too caught up with everything we forget to be aware of these signs. Some are harder to see then others, but if you try, you just may be able to see it.

Christmas and New Years are important to us all, with us, it brings most of our families together, or mine specifically. Although we too experience rough patches, stressful lives, and most times, distance and dealing with 2 other countries of separation from other family members. We miss those we don’t get to see, we wish we could see them all under one roof, or over the time frame of the holidays, that my Dear Watson, is just impossible!! 

So like many others, we forge ahead, participate when we can, with who we can, and celebrate Life.  For these things we are Thankful to be able to share with our children and young adults, who constantly remind us that “we” are getting old!! LOL!!! Something’s like this never change!! 

Traditions some are kept some are not, sometimes it is best to start new ones. Gain friendships, loose friendships, it is all part of how we deal with things, those inner thoughts, the brain that sends the signals to the heart, how to react, or not to react, choices in the end is what it means to go forward and how others will see you.

Reflections of times gone by, to a simpler time, of when your grandparents were (or still may be) around. Do you remember the laughter sitting around the tables, the games your played, the food you shared?? The music shared, the carols sang, some in tuned some not, but who cared it was a celebration to be shared!! We all long for those times, the years gone by, to help with the years ahead still to come.

I remember when my grandmother Georgina would play her piano, we would sit by the bench and sing songs, meet up with my cousins and aunts and uncles and all have a feast. Unfortunately, we don’t do that any more. No more grandparents (my grandparents) are alive anymore. No relatives have taken that role anymore, we see them occasionally at events or funerals it is sad. It makes it hard for our kids to get to know more relatives, as we did when we were growing up. Back then, we got together at least 4 times a year, now we are lucky if it is once a year. It gets harder yet as our families grow each year and all are split around the countries.  My grandma and grandpa loved playing cards. Guess they all did!! Back in those days it was something to do!! Believe me, I have relatives I have never met yet!!

Christmas will be celebrated in one form or another, from across the world. Take in your families and friends, and those who have no one to share it with, spread the love and the joy as if they were one of your own. Celebrate these moments, cherish those around you and remember you are loved.

 

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!  

 

See you in 2017!!

December Holidays and Wishes!!

2014-clipartpanda-com-about-terms-Zy1J4f-clipart

 

Holiday family photos are always a great gift ideal to pass along to your families and friends!!

merry-motif-red-bow

It is that time of the year once again, as we prepare ourselves for the holiday season Christmas!! It is a joyous time of the year especially for those little ones in your home, while it is also a challenge for those who are older or perhaps have other issues going on. So take the time to make sure who ever you meet during this holiday season, you are aware of those people who may just need that extra hug or smile to get them through these challenging times. Prepare your holiday spirit with kindness and love, challenge yourself to help those who may need it.

Lots of things have been going on in our households, many relatives having surgery, kids changing jobs or moving friends. Life is never dull around here, but you know if you had nothing to look forward to whether it is helping those around you or just someone in your community, we would be totally bored. It is just how we are made internally, passionate of helping others. Keep life sparkling with Love.

As I look out the window today, the snow is starting to fall, finally!! As we have been blessed with such unseasonal warm weather with a few twists, we did have a snow storm fly in one day!! We can all get better prepared for the next few weeks ahead of us. It should bring us all together and be Thankful for what we have now. Take the time to enjoy your families and friends and perhaps that stranger you keep meaning to say Hello too or that senior citizen you see on the streets. Be kind, Be Loving, Be true to you and others.

I would like to take this time to let all my family and friends and clients, know that I appreciate each and every one of you!!

Trail Duster Tuesdays.. A new Start for the summer

DSC_7139

Summer time, BBQ’s, Car Shows, strolling the beaches…perfect days for you to sit back and relax and enjoy the views!

Some people can relax more then others, other’s need reassurances to relax. When we find these moments that work for us, we usually keep them until something else comes along and may work better for us.

What are the ways that help you relax? Do you try many things or stick to one thing for yourself?

Summer is the start of days off and vacations, graduations, end of the school year celebrations, all perfect times to get together with family and friends. Some people find these times also hard and stressful.

Changing how you do things for part of the year helps you get some sort of balance within in yourself and your family life also.

Remember that there is no need to spend ubber amounts of money to make yourself and family happy, precious time together or solitude is what is needed to refresh and recoup your lives together.

Life is too short to not do the things you would like or believe in. Too many people in the world who are dying from diseases or accidents, or even self inflicted pain.

Make the best of your time.

Summer… the time to recoup friendships, family lives, your partners and your children’s lives.

January 2014 : An Obeo Adventure in Bountiful, Utah

DSC_0034

Here we are about to embark onto a new adventure to fly to Salt Lake City, Utah, an adventure it was too!

We traveled the night before January 7th. 2014 stayed overnight in the Michigan so that we would have plenty of time to arrive to the airport. It started with a day filled of long road blocks and closures due to weather, icy roads, and traffic tie ups from Peterbourgh, Ontario all the way through to Shelby Township, Michigan.

After many hare-raising moments while travelling to the Detroit Metro International Airport we finally arrived, late, but alive! Checked into our airlines, reassured that we would be on the plane, not the case! Missed it by 5 minutes, disappointed but alive. So now we sit in the airport for 5 hours and people watch, such interesting people that they are.

DSC_0035

Finally a break! We get on the next flight out on stand by, and we are on our way!! Arrived into Salt Lake City around 8:00pm, weather was warmer then back in Michigan or Canada. Reached our hotel finally around 10pm. What a feeling to have finally arrived.

Over the next few days, many people will gather together for an Obeo conference to discuss and train for many things that will be announced during this time.

I met many people during this time and enjoyed each and every moment with all of you. I thank each and every one of you for your patience and understanding while each of us listened, learnt, cried, shared special moments, celebrated advancements, and learnt how to speak to others and listen intently, with intense emotion and pure love.

Some of the places we visited were, The State Capital, The Mormon Tabernacle Church, City Creek Centre, Tuscanos Brazilian Grill Restaurant and downtown Salt Lake City.

Please enjoy these photo’s of our trip, the friends we met and gained in the short few days, with many laughs along the way!!

See You There!!!
