Friday Bliss #12 - Busy Loving

Last week I bought only a few small items from Koiramäen pajutalli. 
Every year I buy less and less and want to restrict my consumption. 
But this sign was fun, pretty and cheap - with a good message, so I could not resist!

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, 
is very simple: loving others. 
- Bob Hope

Remember this December, that love weighs more than gold! 
- Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon

During these dark days at the end of the year it is also vital important 
to preserve one’s enthusiasm. In the past, during some tough times, 
I found positive encouragement from Norman Vincent Peale’s (1898-1993) books. 
He was an American minister and author known for his work in popularizing 
the concept of positive thinking, especially through his best-selling book 
The Power of Positive Thinking

There is a real magic in enthusiasm. 
It spells the difference between mediocrity and accomplishment. 
- Norman Vincent Peale

  6. Dear Riitta,

  7. Your Christmas cactus is beautiful. Love the pink flowers. Mine is staying dormant after the last flower. Hating is tormenting, loving is healthy to the spirit, soul and body. Have a beautiful weekend.

  8. Liebe Riitta,

  9. The sign is great Riitta. I agree on the importance of keeping one’s spirits up during the dark days. I’ve never lived where it is as cold as it is in your part of the world, but when we lived all year in Oregon (before we retired) , the cold gray winter days were hard for me. I had to work harder to keep my spirits up back then. Thank you for sharing the warmth and joy of your lovely home ...and thank you for hosting.

  10.'s often hard to pass up neat little things!
