Come Sit By Me A While: A New Baby A New Era.
Good morning once again ;how happy I am to be ale to invite you over again so soon.
Today's hub is about taking stock; contemplation and about allowing ourselves to be carried to new heights on the magical breezes of each new era.
Today it is so nice to be able to share a hub of beauty after the more sombre words of yesterday's.
Refreshments in hand??
Good ; right take your pews and I will begin.
As I am sure many of you know by now we have a new and beautiful baby prince born to Prince William and Princess Kate..
As I watched it on last night's special news programme I saw Kate's parents ,every inch the proud grandparents leaving the hospital and their pride was so evident. It was at this point that I noticed just how like her mother our beautiful princess is. That look so full of tender warmth ;a look that took me back to our dear Princess Diana. This tenderness is also to be seen on Williams face and I am sure that our sweet angel is today looking down and looking after them all in her own unique way.
There is a bonding here ;a bonding of kindred minds ; of beauty not just on the surface but deep into each heart and soul also.
Then of course appeared the proud parents holding their precious new baby !!!
I have to lose the thread a little here as I make an honest admission ;years ago I did not have much regard for the Royal Family!!I didn't dislike them but they were seldom in my mind; in my thoughts. That is until Charles married Diana and this sweet sweet angel changed it all ;I took great notice of the Royals ;I followed Diana golden trail as she gave her heart to so many; walking as others over grounds of minefields holding the hands of people who were dying ;sharing her heart which was a golden gem so full of worth.
Here I could spout off about all the wrongdoing and pain that certain people inflicted upon her during these years but this hub is a story of new beginnings so this anger of mine I have overcome .I now emphasise on the sweetness in life.
I know that this little baby's parents will make sure that he knows all about his grandmother who so tenderly but strongly looks over them all from her golden haven with the angels up in heaven.
As I look at all this honestly what stands out ??
Is it all their wealth?
Is it their status in life?
No its the obvious love that they have for each other ;the obvious care and kindness that radiates from their every move!!
A new baby ; a new life ; a new era.
Today's song 'Halo by Beyoncé' is so close to my heart as it was played at Erin's funeral and until now haven't been able to play it again.
Day by day we grow stronger ;day by day we allow light to penetrate those once closed off dark places ; day by day we share and day by day we move forward.
As I contemplate on my life's worth I ask myself these questions:-
Do I own a big posh house?
Do I holiday several times a year?
Is my wardrobe fit to burst with grand attires?
Do I own fifty pairs of shoes?
Am I laden with golden jewellery?
The answer to the above questions is "NO".
Material wealth means little to me.
My riches lie in my family, friends and in Mother Nature's precious Kingdom .
I am eternally grateful to be where I am today ;yes the road has been long ;yes the road at time has been so hard to walk on but I have done so and my journey has brought me to you all my precious friends ;my very dear hub family .
I am grateful to have the gift of being able to express myself through writing as I know that words would not be enough.
I am grateful for every time someone tells me that my writing has helped them.
What more can I ask for ??
I don't ask for the impossible ;I don't crave for the unattainable and I no longer carry the anger that has kept me in chains for so many years .
This brings to mind one great prayer which I have tried to live by throughout my life.
The Serenity Prayer.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Sunshine filled borders
enclose and image
of sheer happiness.
Moments of longing
sweet bursts of happiness
lifting my heart
to new heights of wonder
Horizons now beckon
blue seas entrancing
golden sands enchanting.
Rainbows to touch
pots of gold
flowing eternally .
Moments of truth
on the winds of time
Immersed in love
blessed with strength
a gift forever.
Here I bade you all a fond farewell for now and as things are going at present your next visit could be very soon ,ha ha!!
Today I leave you with these thoughts :-
Do you live your lives to the full?
Do you waste precious living moments aching and hankering after something out of your grasp ?
Are you wasting away hours wanting something that deep down you know can never be yours ?
Make an honest list of what you really want ;what deep down you crave for !!What will enrich your life and also the lives of those you love ??
Hold each new era to your heart and allow your self to move forward in a way that you honestly wish to.
Thank you for joining me today again and let's send a message of love to William ,Kate and their precious baby boy.
I wish them a wonderful future with good health and much happiness.
Lots of love to you all my precious friends from my little corner of Wales.
