Happy 2012

I took this photo last week on our family hike.
I love how the sun is setting and creating a lighted pathway.
A pathway to all that is...

You can also see the curvature of the earth.
Whenever I see the curve of the earth it makes me realize that we really are living on a planet in the middle of the galaxy.
It's pretty surreal when you actually think about it.
The universe is vast and yet were so small.

When I see the light reflecting on the water, I reflect on my life.  
I am so grateful for this earth and all the beauty that surrounds us.
I am grateful that were on this amazing planet that takes care of all of our needs.
It feeds us, provides us with water and protects us.

I am also grateful for:
 family and friends

Life is definitely chaotic at times and there are days when I am flustered, tired and asking the universe, why I am here.
What is my role, what am I suppose to do with my life?
Am I doing everything I signed up for?
I then hear that I am not here for one single purpose or one huge miraculous thing.  
I am here to be the light that shines.
The person that smiles and says hello to the stranger.
I am here to love and spread love.

For love is truly the key.
Everyone and everything needs love.
Trees, flowers, rocks, water, animals, family, friends and strangers, you name it, all need love.
Go out and give some love today and you will shine on the inside and out.
You will raise the vibration for everyone and everything.

Happy 2012.
May it bring you all the love and joy you seek.

A perfect way to start winter vacation...

It was 65 degrees and sunny, so the Grandy family decided to begin our vacation by taking a family hike (a 3 hour hike).  
We were craving the ocean so we decided to hike the Pirates Cove Trail.
 Here is the family starting out.  Happy, joyful and feeling blessed.

What this Holiday season really means...

I was in downtown SF the other day and noticed this homeless man walking in front of me.  He was carrying all that he owned and just walking with no real purpose, my heart went out to him.  I had a $20 bill burning a hole in my pocket and I had the impulse to give it to him.  Then I hesitated as this seemed like a rash thing to do.  I was prompted to look at my iPhone at that moment and the time was 11:11.  When you are prompted to look at a clock at 11:11, it's your guides saying hello and showing you that you are not alone.  I took this as a sign and walked up to the man and handed him that $20 and said a simple "Happy Holidays," and continued on.

The reason I am posting this is because I NOTICED HIM.  I noticed him and felt love for him as a fellow human being.  I didn't just walk on by him pretending that I didn't see him.  I realized that he is SOMEBODY and he has a purpose here just like us.  Can you imagine what it must be like, to be ignored all the time, to have no love or a warm place to call home?  

I guess what I am trying to say is this:
Be thankful for what you have
The love of family and friends
A warm house
Food to feed your family
