Hi Dear Friends!

My dear friends, we love you so very much,

You have celebrations scattered throughout the year. You have your holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and more. You celebrate births, commemorate deaths, and even have a holiday dedicated to playing jokes with one another. You have celebrations for the seasons, the equinox, the solstice.

If you think about it, the human race has been very good at finding reasons to appreciate and enjoy the special occasions in life!


Can you imagine a life where every day becomes a celebration – one in which you you awaken and say, “Wonderful!! I have a day of life! I have resurrected into this precious body! I can bring joy, laughter, good food, or at least a great attitude into every moment today. I get to spend time with my human family, the brothers, sisters, aunts, and uncles of my soul! How can I create a day of joy of celebration?”

Your life would become a magical series of joyous moments!

You sit at the Thanksgiving table and appreciate your food. Can you appreciate your food as much every day? Find ways to enjoy what you eat every day and then every meal will be a Thanksgiving.

You give each other presents at Christmas, Hanukkahs, and Diwali – festivals of light. Can you imagine giving each other the light of your Presence every day – for example, the gift of your full undivided attention in every conversation.

You celebrate Passover, Easter, and many other celebrations of freedom and new life. What if every day was a new birth, every day a celebration of the freedom for you soul?

Dear ones, think about your favorite holiday, no matter what it might be, or your favorite celebration. Ask yourself, “What makes this day so special for me?” How can I start to bring the essence of that celebration into my daily life? Then try it…

There is never a need to wait for “special occasions” as we see it, for every precious breath of light is a special occasion to your soul. Allow yourself the joy of bringing a celebration into each day of your precious life.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Hi Everyone,

I usually do the newsletter in my office, but on the day before Easter it was so beautiful, I knew if I didn’t work outside, I wouldn't want to work. I brought the portable computer out to the patio, made coffee with melted dark chocolate and whipped milk, and to the sound of birds chirping, dogs barking, and my neighbors mowing, sat and channeled the newsletters. Sometimes I struggle to write these articles and they take hours. This time they flowed so easily. The day did indeed feel like a celebration.

I challenged myself to do the exercise the angels suggested. I really love all celebrations but my favorite holidays are Christmas and Easter. I love Christmas because it gives me an excuse to spoil the ones I love and they allow me for once! I try to bring that spirit of giving into my life. You can laugh, but I always hate to take down the Christmas tree, so this year I left a little one up in my bedroom as a reminder that the light of the season never goes out!

I had to think about why I love Easter. I adore chocolate, eggs, and bunnies, but more so I love the feeling of new life, new hope, and the celebration of the triumph of of darkness over light. I think I’ll celebrate Easter every time I change my thoughts from negative to positive! That sounds fun.


Here are a few ideas to bring celebration into every day life…

1. Acknowledge the ones you love

It seems we acknowledge our loved ones easily on holidays and special celebrations. Why not make time to acknowledge them more often. Maybe you already do talk to family and friends. but how about calling or emailing someone you haven’t chatted with in awhile, or sending a card that simply says, “Thinking of you.” Clients do this for me at times and it touches my heart.

Think of the first person that pops into your mind. Email, call or send a “thinking of you and sending love” type of card! You’ll feel like it is a holiday!

2. Make or enjoy a special meal

Growing up part Polish, food and celebration went hand in hand. I suspect many of you share that tradition too!

For no good reason ,other than to celebrte life's goodness, make yourself or your loved ones a special meal. Alternately, plan a night out with dear ones to celebrate life. Come with gratitude, good thoughts, and share the love.

3. Decorate or Create a Sacred Space

This might sound a little superficial. However in many temples, churches, and sacred places around the world, the Divine is acknowledged by creating beautiful spaces, filling an altar with flowers, or perfuming the air with incense.

Perhaps you can create a little corner in your home for acknowledging life’s goodness. You can use a plant, flowers, crystals, happy photos, memorabilia, or whatever you like to create a quick, visual reminder of love and celebration.


I love how the angels constantly urge me to enjoy life now, celebrate today, and never ever put off any goodness, for any reason whatsoever.

I love our holidays too, ecause they give us an excuse to celebrate… but then again, why wait for excuses!

Love you all!
Ann

Recipe of the Week
Incredible Cinnamon Buns
Recipe of the Week
This is not my recipe and I do not remember who gave it to me years ago, but these turn out a lot like the rolls served at the malls... very good for breakfast during any decadent celebration! They disappear fast if you have company :) 

Rolls:
1/2 c warm water
2 packages dry yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 3-1/2 oz vanilla pudding mix
1/2 c margarine, melted
2 eggs
1 t salt
6 c flour

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 c margarine
1 t vanilla
3 c confectioner's sugar
1 T milk

In a small bowl combine water, yeast and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Set aside. In large bowl, take pudding mix and prepare according to package directions. Add margarine, eggs, and salt. Mix well. Then add yeast mixture. Blend. Gradually add flour; knead until smooth.

Place in a large greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down dough and let rise again. 

Then roll out on floured board to 34 x 21-inch size. Take 1 cup soft butter and spread over surface. In small bowl, mix 2 cups brown sugar and 4 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle over top. Roll up very tightly.

With knife, put a notch every 2”. Cut with thread or knife. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet 2” apart. Take hand and lightly press down on each roll. Cover and let rise until double again. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Take out when they start to turn golden. Don’t over bake. 

Beat all frosting ingredients together. Frost warm rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

Makes about 20 very large rolls.
