Starry Starry Night

I have learned that it is against the DARKEST and LONELIEST sky


where a star shines its bRigHtest.

Add Glitter to your Photos

IF you find yourself feeling ALONE and AnXIous



LOOK UP

and SPARKLE



like the star that you are





because all you have to do is remember to

"DO the ordinary, SImpLe THINGS







with ExTRAordinary LOVe."

Very sweet post. Thanks.

Christel Hutson said...

Dear Anita, when I saw the title to this post, it instantly brought me to "Vincent" a song by Don McClain, that I dearly love, and then as I read on, it made me wonder how many sad, lonely people are out there, just waiting to read your post, and feel alive, and loved, and special. You have that special something, the ability to reach across the pages, through the internet wire, and touch people in only a way unique to you. I always leave your posts feeling inspired, and warm. Thank you for the hug. With Love, Christel

Jacqueline said...

I have been thinking about love...deep love. Love is very deep and it is extraordinary and it's ordinary at the same time. It's simple, it's easy and it's very easy to love you dear Anita.

Love was on my mind as I drove to Seattle yesterday to see my three kids. I felt awful with some aches from working my hind end off but my heart was so full of love for the three of them.

Yes, look up, because the one who created love looks down and is all around us.

Lovely, what a beautiful post.

Rosie said...

Greetings dear friend,
Oh those tree photos are spectacular...accompanied by a perfect collection of thoughts...we all have desolate moments...times where we feel so alone. The silver lining is, the HOPE we have in Him. Yes dearest, once again your words truly do S*P*A*R*K*L*E.
Still sniffling and coughing...will take another "warm fluffy bed" day tomorrow.
How was your commute today...hoping it was a bit more enjoyable.
Well, the kettle is whistling and my teacup is ready to go...so will wish you a good night and send you a hug.
Until tomorrow...xoxox...ROSIE

Ruben Rivera said...

Dearest Anita,

I don't know how to express thanks for you. You are so full of love. You are my star in the night. I think you know that. But I just wanted to say it to the whole world.

I Love you

Ruben

Christel Hutson said...

Oh Anita, I had to come back, and listen to Starry Starry Night...I did not hear it, I rarely ever turn my speakers on..isn't that strange that this song would enter my mind, and the lovely pictures you displayed told the story as I read...I love this post even more now. Thank you for taking a moment to come and visit, and leave such kind words for me. With Love, Christel

Martina said...

Dearest Anita, what a sweet post you've composed here! This time of year is certainly one that is not easy if you're alone or depressed, and a sweet reminder of STARS inside and outside feels good!
Am hoping to get some alone time though, over this weekend, to refill my creative batteries and follow up with ideas i've had and creative projects that are waiting, and painting...
What are your plans for the weekend?

Sacha said...

Merci Anita !!!! je me suis régalée les yeux tant j'ai aimé chaque image de ton billet toutes narrent une histoire touchante , gourmande , tendre , poêtique , sensuelle , mystérieuse .....
Bonne journée

Privet and Holly said...

Awwww....This is
just singing to
my soul. That song
always resonates with
me and brings me back
to my childhood, when
catching a falling
star seemed like a dream
that could very possibly
come true. Love this
and YOU, sweet sweet
friend!! Happy Friday.
xx Suzanne

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Love to you my friend and hoping you have a fun weekend with your dearest.

In His love,
Deborah xoxoxoxo

A wonderful reminder and words of hope. What a beautiful gift you have my dear friend ... of encouragement and delight.

Of course I had to giggle at the jeweled shoes and matching dog.

WIth love, Violet

lostpastremembered said...

Since I just learned all about Halloween and the time when spirits walk... it seems your advice is especially sage... it can be considered a scary or a lovely time depending on your mindset...lovely words and photos, Anita. I am over the moon for the writing paper pumpkin!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

What a wonderful post! I know that someone, somewhere, who really needed to hear this today will read it and feel uplifted.

George the Lad said...

Hi Anita and Balzac, I love going for walks when its a starry night it means the air is fresh, good for clearing the head don't you know, I'm sure Balzac would tell you the same. So you see us dogs like the simple things in life to.
Now I know you always come to see me, which as a mere dog I feel very honored, well mom says I should keep my fuzz shut, but I has to tell yea, make sure you come and see me on the 1st of Nov I have some things going on, and I do hope you will let Balzac take part. All will become clear on the posts.
Have a great Weekend
Your faithfull furry fuzz friend George xxxx

Martina said...

Anita, so kind you came again! And please, take your time to relax and unwind. A panic attack is a warning sign - really, what are they asking of you? I mean, you're so ambitious as a teacher and i'm sure you do a really god job there. But sometimes, times are strange and we cannot avoid the pressure. I've had a difficult week as well, beacause i was hoping for some free time, but instead got involved in an urgent project i couldn't say no to - and here i am, with a headache, feeling so tired. Aw, you know what? Let's really, really enjoy this weekend, make it recharge us and connect us with that twinkling star i can see. And then post about it. A little adventure! xoxoxo, M.

My Grama's Soul said...

Hi Anita...just flying by on my way to the Kit Kat Club for matinne and evening...What beautiful images for Starry Night...I will think of these driving home tonight...Cheers Dzintra♥x

Beach House Living said...

Very sweet post written with few words yet utmost impact as only you seem to be able to do. Thank you I really enjoyed this.

Rosie said...

Ah Anita dear,
I am so saddened, that you must endure this dreaded paper work:(
Is it new to you because of the curriculum change?...Perhaps, as you get more familiar with this method, things will improve. The unknown is always a bit unnerving until we are sure of what is expected. This will be my morning request...that our dear, caring Father will give you the confidence and undaunting courage, to tackle even the most difficult of tasks. You my dear are an angel of hope to so many of these thirsty minds that we must not let this nasty paperwork get in the way. Your gift to these wee babes is one year of unbridled INSPIRATION...and what an amazing gift this is. You my dear will get over this hurdle and go on to make our precious Father smile with pleasure, all because you trusted Him fully. He loves you and will not give ANYTHING that, with His help, you can not conquer.
Now...with those warm fuzzy slippers on and your cuppa in hand, grab your favorite book, sit by a crackling fire and ENJOY!
We have the largest tree in our front yard, that you have ever seen. Probably planted when the house was built, which makes it over 100 years old and this lovely lady has leaves the size of dinner plates. Bill threatens every year that he is going to get rid of it but he never will. We get anywhere from 40 to 50 garbage bags of leaves from this majestic old tree. So bagged 12 today and put out my collection of white pumpkins, ready for tomorrow. We don't get as many kids as we used to, but I still like to see the sweet little buttons come to our door. Do you get many kids?
Time for supper and a little mindless T.V...sending a hug...Rosie

Patricia Cabrera said...

My dearest friend, You always have this SPECIAL way to *wow* me.
What a sweet remind of how we are not alone. My star is Christ and He reminds me everyday how much more I should be thankful including of friends like YOU!*grin*
Warm, warm hug to you!!!! Love you, T.
Oh yes.... so loved the pictures!!!

Bonjour ma belle!!

With love so much can be accomplished. And if we should slip into stardom during the process we should do so with grace & humbleness. That adds up to perfection!
I'm so busy working right now... tis the season! Loving our new place on Golden Pond... it's an enchanting little place, perfect for the two of us.
One of these days I WILL get back to my french lessons!! ANd I will be counting on you my professor!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Anita Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share you have here. I absolutely love it. You are such a beautiful writer, I think you missed your calling. Teaching is good, I know, but your art and love for writing is spectacular. I love it when you share.

You always make each visitor feel as though you have written for just them. You my friend are the shining star I see twinkle when I look up. I know each time you are saying hello to me. Thank you so much for allowing me to call you friend. It is such an honor for me.

Again thank you for sharing with me today. I love reading your thoughts. You and Ruben have a wonderful Halloween, are you dressing up? Can't wait to see what you would choose. Many hugs sweetie and SO much love, Sherry

"brrinnggg....briinnnnggg...Trick or Treat!"
I must say I am treated to a plethora of sweetness each morning when we have our fabulous cuppa...thank you dear one. Speaking of which that was a crazy good cuppa this morning! Oh Anita you must be SOOO excited...I am doin' the HAPPY dance right this moment and grinning BIG...YIPPEE!!!!
Will you be able to take a bit of time out of your CrAzY schedule to attend the "ground breaking ceremony?"
Oh dear one it was busy today, and I was trying to pretend I was healthy and well, when I was not. I think tomorrow will be a "snuggly bed day"...it is taking tooo long to get better. I don't have time for this. Oh well, I shall rest one more day...
Well dear one have a splendid week end...and give away many sweets :D...love Rosie

Champagne Macarons said...

Oh dearest, I am barely keeping above water and sometimes I feel as if I'm not. This architecture course is taking so much time and I'm taking another one next semester. I need to in order to move forward. My poor children, it's hard for them as they're used to me always being available to them. That has been very hard for all us to adjust. I thought I could put the next course off a bit but it doesn't look like it.
How are you? You mentioned you're feeling the same. Is it the renovation? How is that going. I'm certain it will be fabulous once it's completed.
Thank you for understanding my absence. It's hard not to be able to post regularly or respond to posts immediately.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday!
xoxo, B

Fine Bessot said...

Hello ! Chère Anita,
J'adore les changements de look de ton blog. Les photos sont magnifiques et les couleurs aussi.
J'espère que tu vas bien ?
Je suis allée voir à Nice les découpages de Matisse, j'aime beaucoup l'imagination de ce peintre. Et j'apprécie ce post. A très bientôt avec toute mon amitié. Fine

Susan said...

I read over at Bluebird Notes that you took a fall yesterday! So sorry to hear that! I know how you felt! I too was tripped by a student (not intentionally) and down I went...Bounced right back up too, but I heard my little red haired girl snicker... I couldn't help but think I might have done the same seeing me go down and all my papers and pencils go flying!
What a sight! I'm certain that you were much more graceful!
Keep bouncing back, my friend!
Blessings!

The French Bear said...

Anita, what a beautiful post! I love the photos, each one is just wonderful!!!! I feel the same as all of readers, it is such a pleasure to stop by and I always get excited for the next post!!!
Happy Halloween!

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Beautiful post Anita
You know Starry Starry Night is one of my favourite songs... has much sentimental attachment for me and always brings a tear to my eye... The perfect song for your message...

I just love that first image.. I have a similar one I may post soon... But all these are just lovely... I must check out the source!!

Did you take it easy this weekend?

I am finding it harder and harder to take it easy on the weekends..espcially this time of year as the magical SEASON will soon be upon us...always soooo much to do.

Have a great week...fill it with JOY...LOVE and HAPPINESS!

kerrie said...

Anita...I keep missing your posts because after several times of re-blog listing you, your blog STILL does not show up on my blog list. I cannot figure it out. It says its on there and I've checked and checked and checked to make sure I have the correct addie for you. Hmph! Has anyone else had trouble getting your blog on their bloglist??? Because I was you shining like a star over there on my sidebar!!!! lOve yOu ox

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

So so s w e e t, Anita. Thank you for making me sing this lovely song over and over again in my head ;)
Happy to read my postcard found your doorstep!
Have a wonderful start to the month of November, you keep on running, flying, running, flying and do take your rest every now and then xxxxxx

Rosemary said...

Hope you had a Happy Halloween weekend!!
xo,
Rosemary

kerrie said...

First, Your new blog look is gorgeous! My favorite part are those turqoise faded letters of your blog title. I don't know why your blog does not upload on my blog roll. When I type in your blog website into my 'add' blog it goes in. But on my actual blog it doesn't show up...and this was a problem before you ever changed your blog header. That does not affect it. So just so you know you can take the itty bitty castles, Crowns, and Cottages off of the top of your header. I will just add you to my faithful friends list :) oxoxo

Rosie said...

Oh Dear one...A HUGE W*O*N*D*E*R*F*U*L hole....YIPPEEEEE!!
and you are feeling better, oh I am sooo relieved. I know what you mean when you say you were concerned and assuming the worst. Ah, but God is so very, very faithful.
I talked to my purse lady TODAY and she thinks it will be in by Friday! At that point, I will send you a few snappies and see if any of these tickle your fancy.
I am STILL under the weather...and sleeping so much. Can't seem to shake this silly old cold. Will have ANOTHER sick day tomorrow....Ahhhhhhhhhh!
Wishing you a "Wonderfilled" day of blissful digging...thank you for the great snappies...I'm in the bottom corner of the snappy, wear a BIG grin with my cuppa in hand...xoxox...Rosie

Arti said...

A beautiful post... The joy of simple things are great!!
Loved the pics, lovely indeed!
Have a great week ahead:)

Cindy Swanson said...

Anita, I always look forward to your posts...they're always as inspiring as they are lovely!

Martina said...

Dearest Anita, want to wish you a good start into this week and hope you could relax and let go of it all over the weekend. Was worried, when i heard about your cramps! What do other teachers say to that new mode of teaching in your school? Am a little late, because yesterday was a holiday here, and i was still in sunday "stand by" mode. Hope to get a new post up later in the afternoon. Awww, i feel like taking the whole week of! Take care! xx

Barbara said...

Such a lovely post, Anita! Your thoughts and photos are perfectly put together as usual. Sheer pleasure to read and I always feel better after I've visited you!

HI Anita
Me again.. thanks for popping over to support my whinge habit.. hahaha... the fonts in that post are actually image files i created.. I think there is a way to get other fonts in text but it is complex and slows down the blog.. so I just make up the images in ps and load them as pics.. Hope that answers your question.. [a little]

OK... Have a great day..! ciao xxx Julie

M.A.the2nd said...

Dearest Anita ... this is so true and so beautiful. Do the simplest things with extraordinary love, care and attention. I always think if something is worth doing it is worth doing well. Always strive for perfection no matter how insignificant the task! Such a beautiful post as well and I like from the darkest night shines the brightest light. Sometimes all we have to do is look up and find it! I often find here in Australia when looking up at our night sky which is the southern cross you immediately feel in awe of the overwhelming beauty and enormity of the world we live in. Gorgeous post as always my dear friend and I have just signed up for my subscription to Belle Inspiration so I am very excited!
hugs always
Frances

koralee said...

Just came over to say...what would I do without you my friend..you are a true blessing. We need to plan to meet soon...and yes Rosie will come along for the date as well. xoxoxoox

Have a great evening...school was busy today...I think the students are still on a sugar high. xoxoxo

M.A.the2nd said...

Dearest Anita .... I hope you feel better soon. You poor thing ... you are probably exhausted. A very good thing to have a break and look after yourself for a day. You so deserve it as I can imagine you go at full speed all day to meet deadlines and to please everybody! Take care of yourself! I am so excited that your building has started ....YAH! And your sofa will probably be arriving the same time as my sofa from Karina will be! How is that for fate! I do believe we have so much in common and some pink bubbles of gorgeous French champagne is just the beginning! PLease keep me posted and I hope you feel recharged and better soon. Thank-you for your lovely comments as always and as always you make my day! Bon Nuit dearest Anita.
hugs
Frances
ps Is that your email address that you gave me on one of your posts as I would love to email. Karina and I talk just about everyday! By the way I just thought you would like to know ... a client of mine thinks you are the exact replica of Audrey Hepburn! She was looking at my blog and thought you were Audrey Hepburn!!!!!
