The Yoga Class

                                               Yoga in the Park!
This evening I was really looking forward to taking a yoga class in the park. When I arrived to the park the students were eagerly awaiting the yoga instructor who never showed up. Since i'm a certified yoga instructor I volunteered to teach the class to them. Although I haven't taught a yoga class for several months the class ran smoothly and it felt good to be of service to students who really wanted a yoga class.

Everything happens for a reason and sometimes we need to adapt and adjust at a moments notice to a situation. I'm thankful for the opportunity I had this evening to serve others by teaching an outdoor yoga class.

Wherever you are in this universe embrace those moments of opportunity to help others.

The Penny

Holding down three jobs and always multi-tasking it felt so good to sit down for a few moments in the backyard the other day. I dreamed of easier times when life was more "carefree." Suddenly I noticed a penny on the ground. It hadn't been there before and my inner voice told me to pick it up. I did and was mesmerized with the year engraved on the penny. That year I was blessed with the best carefree summer of my life and the memories flooded my mind of that sweet summer long ago.

That penny gave me hope that my guardian angels knew my pain and distraught and assured me that "moments" of happy times will come again someday. "The penny" was my sign of hope that someday there will be carefree moments again.

Believe in those little signs that come into your moments of everyday life.

The Duck and Her Ducklings

A few evenings ago while sitting under a shady tree looking at the glimmering lake I observed a duck and her ducklings. It was so heartwarming to watch the devoted mother with her sweet little babies. They were very entertaining and I wish I had filmed those ten great minutes of the happy duck family.

What I learned while watching the duck family is that they knew the meaning of devotion and love. They all clung together and looked out after each other.

Nature brings us lots of beauty and there's nothing more beautiful than being still and taking moments to observe that beauty.  "Be still" and enjoy those moments of beauty.

The memory of the "Duck and Her Ducklings" will stay with me all summer because it was so genuine and touching. I can't wait to see another duck family.

Take moments this summer to observe nature!
