The Secret Bed & Breakfast
Consider the Woodpecker 20 Apr 2015, 4:39 amKnock,Knock. Knock, Knock. Consider the woodpecker, his success at getting food depends upon him using his head. Banging it essentially against trees. So, I'm just thinking how like the woodpecker some people are. Out there, day in and day out trying to make a living doing nothing more than banging their heads against a wall. So, who needs to sit quietly and read a book, look at beautiful flowers, or enjoy the sun rising and setting over the horizon? Call me I know the "Secret" to halting that head banging!
Storm Clouds 19 Apr 2015, 5:47 am“Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain.”
And appreciate the beauty in the clouds as they fill up the sky with their billowy gray mass. Then as the rain empties from them dissipate as quickly as they came.
When you walk through a storm 19 Apr 2015, 4:49 am"When you walk through the storm hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the dark. At the end of the storm there's a golden sky and the sweet silver song of a lark."
Sometimes words pale in comparison to a warm embrace. Sometimes in the midst of a storm a rainbow will appear that makes all the gloom and darkness suddenly worthwhile.
The Rose 16 Apr 2015, 5:00 amA gray morning turned into a beautifully sunny afternoon. Walking the property in the late evening enjoying the sunshine and blue sky I walked past the Joseph's Coat rose and noticed its first tiny blossoms. A rose is a lesson to us all to look for the beauty in all we see in spite of the thorns that appear on the surface. If you search for the bad that is what you will find, if you search for the good you will often find a rose amid the thorns.

Morning has broken 12 Apr 2015, 4:54 amMorning has broken. The wind chimes are dancing in the breeze on the patio. Is it a warm or cool breeze that is driving their song? This time of year its anyone's guess. The sun's rays are just peaking over the horizon painting the sky cotton candy pink. During this time of the day, when everything is waking up, time seems to stand still. Time for quiet reflection. Time to prepare for the week ahead. Let spring bring in all the new beginnings. Embrace them like the wind chimes embracing the breeze.

Positivity 8 Apr 2015, 4:05 amDon't let others steal your joy. Be a glass half full sort of person and don't allow those who are negative to enter into your life. Spring is a time of the year when everything is beginning life anew! Why not let it be that time of year for you! Take the time to look at everything around you. Change your view, climb a tree, lie flat on the ground, see things from a different vantage point. Soon, the negative things that seemed so important will begin to take on a whole new perspective. Realize that all you can be is the best you can be, be kind to others, and everything else will fall into place. Happy Hump Day Ya'll!!! The weekend is almost here!

The Many Views of The Secret 7 Apr 2015, 3:53 am"You are the sun, I am the moon. You are the words, I am the tune. Play me."--Neal Diamond--
Not too many places you can wake up to the sunrise in the morning, then walk to the other side of the property to view the sunset in the evening. And every full moon in between! Wish I had known the Secret a long time ago, it would have been great for stress relief!
