Today’s flower of the day is a mouthful: Angelonia Serenita Raspberry
Though this particular flower doesn’t technically have its own meaning, it is actually a type of Snapdragon flower.
The Snapdragon flower primarily represents both deception and graciousness. This may seem to be contradictory, but the Snapdragon flower is actually used as a charm against falsehood because of this. The initial feeling one may get from this flower is intimidation, particularly with one of its primary meanings being “deception.” However, I have found it to mean that rather than it meaning “deception” in the literal sense, it instead is a flower that fights against it.
The Snapdragon flower is also used as a way to apologize for having made a mistake. And the power of its polarity gives strength to those who call on the flower’s ability to persevere through any situation with grace.
Look to this flower when you are scared of facing the truth, or when you have made a mistake (particularly if it was due to a misunderstanding) and are afraid to apologize. This flower will help you summon the courage already within you to face and embrace the truth.
Lately, due to exceptional circumtances, I had to reflect on my life and ask me the real questions: what is it that is important for me, where do I put my time, my strength and my energy, why am I living in a country that is not mine, what are my intentions, am I following this path with heart?... As I was questioning myself and my soul, I realized how my life has changed since I'm on this path; a change so big that it is actually a complete rebirth gifted with a deep sense of Reverence for Life & Mother Earth. -
A leaf is not just a leaf. It is a pure and perfect Creation
If you follow your heart... you will always end up in the right place. As moms sometimes that’s hard to feel. I never know if I’m doing it right, but what I know today is that if I reach everyday to love and serve every person around me in the way they need to be served, I will have succeeded in this life. This includes the service to my own heart, my own mind, and my own body. These littles watch me and sometimes that terrifies me. So I rest in the love of my savior and love unconditionally as he teaches me to. I’m grateful for this grounded awareness today. #betterforthem#momlifebelike
I think this mundial has sparked some past skills! ☺️
Nico & Noah both went to soccer classes a couple of years ago. They were part of a very good team in Miami and played real well! Half way through they started getting bored of going to practice and all games.
They said it was just too much and repetitive! They had really good coaches but I believe they just wanted to explore other options and do more adventurous things!
This last week we have shared with family, and they have especially been able to see some games and hang with one of their cousins who plays as part of a big team in Panama!
We had a chance to watch Pele’s story and see how someone has a passion and goes for it despite all challenges and obstacles! They have also seen, it runs in all family men genes, including their grandpa and uncles.. they have felt all that energy! ❤️⚽️ Also seeing how competition can also be positive when it’s part of team work!
They have been requesting since then to play again! Even my other nephew!💪🏼👊🏼
Today I sat here... I loved watching their reactions & personalities! Taking turns, and seeing how they have different strengths and how they can use them and have fun!
Not sure what will happen, but all I can do is continue reminding them to see where they think this is coming from, what they want to do with it! They’ve both asked me to take them to class again! I’ve told them to envision them on a team and sleep on it! We will see! 😀🙏🏼

Something absolutely magical happens when we combine exercise and nature. The hard pushing yang on a climb balanced with the restorative yin of a breeze, the song of a bird, and the smell of leaves. Therapy for mind, body, and spirit. Happy self care Sunday!
Adding a little more to this painted wood slice I started awhile ago and impatiently waiting for autumn 🌞🔥 I’m also hoping to have my Alaska/Polychrome Pass painting finished in the next couple of days and making some prints! 🏔
Some of the my favorite contemplation places involve water... I don't need much, just a little dose of nature! 🌿😊
This is where I completed my meditation practice this morning. Sitting on a swing in the sun with a refreshing breeze blowing now and then...
"One of these days, the ground will drop out from beneath your feet.. One of these days ,your heart will stop and play its final beat.. One of these days, the clocks will stop and time won't mean a thing..
One of these days, their bombs will drop and silence everything.. But it's alright.. Yeah it's alright.. I said it's alright.. Easy for you to say ..
Your heart has never been broken ..Your pride has never been stolen.. Not yet.. not yet.. One of these days ,I bet your heart'll be broken.. I bet your pride'll be stolen.. I bet, I bet.. One of these days.. One of these days.." F.F.
