She won’t ever be this young again, this willing to eat breakfast in bed with daddy. He longs to be as old as her, to carry that tray and have the responsibility of buttering the toast. I capture these moments because they matter, because they remind me that life is short and time passes by quickly. The simplicity in this act is the finest of gestures from a little girl who adores her daddy, so to their daddy, my dad, all the dads that step up and mums doing dads jobs too, and to the dads no longer with us who remain in our hearts; Happy Father’s Day. .
This is one of the best things I introduced into my daily life consciously several years ago.
"What goodness can I offer to somebody else today?
How can I brighten someone's day not expecting anything in return?" Doing this on a regular basis becomes habit and it's a ripple effect.
Like attracts like.
In more recent years I learned that it is also known as Karma Yoga.
So we all practice a form of Yoga when we do this. 🙌
Have a great day everyone. ❤ ~Marianne
In one of my modules this year, we had been asked to create a digital story as an assessment demonstrating Patient-Centred Care in pratice.
I have never been good at creating stories but after a few draft, I eventually manage to create a piece that I feel showed care and compassion. I titled it "simple gesture" because as nurses we are always so busy with various tasks that we often forget to take the time to sit down with our patients and ask how they are feeling. It's so amazing how much a simple conversation can change a person's day.
Poped into #wagahgrillhouse in #glasgow last evening for a takeaway. After the order was placed, the man in the pic and I got in to a conversation. He talked about his home in #pakistan and I was talking about life in India. He showed me a few pics of his home which included a #mango#tree . Apparently his family had recently returned from home.
Once the meal was ready he handed over a Mango from that tree in Pakistan.

@theglaswegistani thanks to you it was through your check-in on FB (I think) I was able to come here
Out of the mouth of W as he hands me a freshly picked flower, “a flower for the loveliest bride I know.” Me: “umm, I’m not a bride.”
W: “that may be true but you are still the loveliest.”
It’s the simplest displays of love that fill my heart with such abundance. Blessed beyond measure. Live loud. Love hard. Spread joy. #love#mamaandson#grateful#proudmama#happyheart#simplegestures
Each morning Jim plucks an hibiscus or two and leaves them at my place at the table, or by the coffee pot, or my writing chair. The flowers are as beautiful as Jim's gesture, but every once in a while, one of them is almost as extraordinary as my guy. #hibiscus#flower#simplegestures#love
✖️KINDNESS✖️ this weeks good deed done. Sent our colourful protea headband and @pinkpaddockstore store card out to someone that really needed a little pick me up
Hope this small gesture of kindness brightens their day immensely 💕
Do you do good deeds for no reason at all but simply in hope, it will make a difference to someone's day?#kindness#kindnessisfree#gooddeeds#karma#wellwishes#simplegestures#stationary#cards
All everybody wants is to be happy. Making others smile and bringing them happiness, in turn feels great for us, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Give someone a compliment, cheer a stranger on, smile when you pass people, buy someone a coffee, tell a stranger they’re doing great — you never know whose day you’ll make; someone who may need that simple gesture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m currently attending the biggest agility event I’ve been to. I only know one other competitor and I’m new(er) to the sport. On Friday after my practice round, a complete stranger stopped me when our run was over and said “she’s awesome, you have a driven little dog!” Those words stuck with me, made my night, and stayed in my brain during the moments where we haven’t connected like we can. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cheer someone one, make someone happy. The world really does need more of that. 🖤
My coworkers have no idea how much this meant to me today. When I walked into my office and saw this I literally sat and cried for a good 5 minutes before I could even go out to find everyone and thank them. #SimpleGestures#MeantEverythingToMeToday @tommysflorida
I haven’t forgotten I owe you all a blog, life has gotten a little hectic but today we had a surprise visit from friends that have been part of my life for over twenty five years (well one of them at least). I know this family will feature heavily in my stories over the years gone by but I also know we’ve got many years of memories ahead of us yet to be made. This Easter I encourage you all to pick up the phone and call those family member and friends you perhaps don’t always have time to and make just one persons day brighter with your voice. Happy holidays to you all. Lx
Ps, I know this photo is blurred we were too busy giggling to check and repeat. #happyeaster#lifelongfriends#foreverfriends#babybump#makingthemostofit#laughter#makingmemories#simplegestures#lifessimplepleasures
