Cherished Blog Fest - Memories

The Cherished Blog Fest
Their directive:
Often, objects lead us to memories.
The objects we hold most dear, harbor the most cherished memories.
For the CHERISHED Blogfest, we invite you to talk to us about one of your cherished objects.
Tell us what it is, post a picture of it if you like, and tell us why you cherish it.
Keep your post to below 500 words.
Join us on the 24th to 26th of July 2015 in sharing memories, emotions, information.
We’ll read and comment on each others’ posts, get to know each other better,
and hopefully, make or renew some friendships.
I try not to lay too much importance on objects as these come and go. My prized possessions are my photographs for they are moments I have captured in time and each tell a story, trigger a memory and take me back to a moment in time.

I couldn't possibly post all my pictures here so instead I'll pick one that always brings back happy memories. Christmas is always such a joyful time of year and these pictures each have a story behind it.

Each year I buy an ornament each for my children - their little special something. The ornaments shown here were the Christmas 2013 ornaments.

The climbing Santa was a gift to my dad from his grandchildren in the US. It was special to him and now it's special to us too.

The Angel on the tree is my special angel. She always gives me a feeling of peace and protection.

And each year my mom cooks an awesome Christmas meal for all of us and the whole family gets together to enjoy the meal. It's always a happy time.

My greatest joy at Christmas is the giving and appreciating the receiving.

Warm Regards

3 Quote Challenge

Thank you Shilpa Garg and Ushaji for tagging me for the 3 Quote Challenge.  This challenge is meant to be over 3 days but I cheat a little and include them all in one post.

My first quote:
"Always look your best, you never know who you might meet"

These were words that jumped out at me while I was reading a work colleagues blog. These were words her late mother would say to her. Coincidentally just a day before I read that I was thinking I needed to spruce up a bit. Also I had been meaning to read her blog since the start of the year but never got around to it until that day when I had a sudden urge to read. Her mom I am sure was reaching out to me. Thank you for your words of wisdom. I truly needed to hear that.

My second quote:
"Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment" ~ Lau Tzu

I wish I had known this quote many years ago, for I learned the hard way to respond intelligently. More often than not we are so reactive and respond in the same way - unintelligently. And invariably that keeps the issue going.

My third and final quote, one of my own:
"Go with the flow, be Zen, and let it go"

Have a dream, set an intention but then let the Universe bring it to you, don't force the flow, go with it. Let go of things that no longer serve you to make way for that which does and new things. And most of all be at peace with life, stay calm.

Looks like all the bloggers I know have already done the challenge. In case you haven't take it that you are tagged and join in.

For the 3-Day Quote Challenge which I have condensed into one day:

  • Post one of your favorite quotes (different quote on each day) on three consecutive days. The quote can be from your favorite book, author, or your own.
  • Nominate 3 bloggers to challenge them.
  • Thank the blogger, who nominated you.
