Ordinary Happiness Nov. 5th, 2011

Saturday, November 05, 2011


Once upon a time, my sister wrote to me
"Find your favorite comfy spot
and Dream your day away."

A CD of piano music by Emile Pandolfi is playing and I'm dreaming....
My godson just asked his girlfriend to marry him. They've known each other since they were freshmen at Stanford, seven years ago. She said "yes". My sister would be so pleased. She liked the 'the girl' a lot. (This part isn't a dream! They are engaged!)

I'm sharing a song with you, wishing I could find just the instrumental. It's the kind of song that simply 'takes you away'. Nonetheless, if you want, listen to it, and dream of your ordinary happiness.

Keola and Kapono Beamer - Honolulu City Lights
It seems that I can't get the link to you....it's such a dreamy, sentimental song. Check it out at YouTube.

    One of my favorite hymns that our choir sings quite often and that I listend to today is called "Total Praise"...check it out on YouTube if you haven't heard it. It will put you in a spirit of worship quickly. emoticon

    Wow, that is one of my favorite songs in the whole world! You simply blew my mind! I didn't know that The Carpenters recorded it too. Although I have a lot of respect for them, the Beamer Brothers version will always be my personal fav!



    emoticon I enjoyed your post and hearing that beautiful recording again! Thank You!

    I'm definitely going to check this out. Sunday's are usually our days of total peace...we just hang out together doing mostly nothing. It's so true that we need at least one day to restore our souls. You always have the best quotes and suggestions for peaceful living and I SO appreciate them in our high stress world. Blessed news I'm sure your beautiful sister is dancing in heaven. Have you seen any butterfly's lately...oh..yes...here's one now! emoticon

    Nice to think that your sister would be pleased - is your godson her son? I'm not very good myself at doing nothing. I would say "I'm working on it" but, then, that's the problem, isn't it?! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my page, too, Chrys. Enjoy your Sunday.

    Too few people really know how to relax! I'm with you, I can so easily sit with a scented candle going, listening to soft piano music, reading a good book, or just daydreaming about such simple pleasures!

    Oh, it was so lovely. Wonderful reminder to contemplate the good in our lives, rather than fret in the other direction!

    Thank you for the quiet moment!

    Chrys, I'm catching up on blogs and enjoying your thoughts on gratitude and happiness. It is the simple, "cozy", things that are the most special. I'm working today and my husband promised me a campfire tonight with cocoa. That is certainly going to be my ordinary happiness for today emoticon
