Not Once But Thrice + 1

    1. I was told by a doctor that it is impossible to gain height as an adult. I just proved the man wrong. I lost over 2 inches due to my back. I’m determined to at least maintain the one inch I’ve gained! Thank you so much for your feedback and encouragement, CM!! Both I highly treasure!! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

    1. Thank you, Colleen!! You and Irene are wondering what these supplements are. The list is long. I will write them down, then leave them here for you. Remember, everyone is different and I have some health issues that many people do not. Will be back later …… xo

  1. Amazing beautiful post, young lady 🙂
    Your photos are great and the last, as you have played with, are really looking like paintings.
    I’m happy to hear, that you have gained your good health again and wonder a bit like Colleen, what you use of supplements etc.
    I’m doing daily exercises, but only to make my body stronger for now, which seems to be necessary.
    Much love to you ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Irene, for the high compliments you have paid me. I’ve been playing around in my editing rooms to get a certain emotional feel to some of my pictures, learning as I go. I’ve not really gained my good health yet but still a work in progress. It seems I improve in one area but go downhill in another area. I just won’t give up, however!! Much love to you!! xo

      1. I think, it is nice to be a work in progress, Amy 🙂
        We don’t give up and do our best to improve all the time, just the way to go, dear friend.
        Our papers age in one thing, but we don’t need to act in such a way. The health demands so much more attention, the more old we become. I fight that too and yes, something improves and other go the other way. Up again and continue.
        Thanks for being such a great inspiration.
        Much love to you ❤

  2. Wonderful read Amy, and yes… We are what we eat…. and its so important for us to take care of our inner temple.. 🙂 And it reflects back that which we put in ..
    Great confirmation. As is the Falcon.. and if you look up the totem meaning you will see why 🙂
    Brilliant photos Amy…
    Stay Blessed my friend…
    Love and Hugs your way … ❤

    1. I did look up what Falcon means and VK sent me a site that blew me away! What a sign from Mother and what a powerful totem for me! I’m literally blown away!
      I’m so glad you enjoyed this read …. bless you for saying you did, Sue. I am very strict with my diet and if I told you the all of what I eat and supplement, you’d know how serious I am. Too many issues have to be addressed and I am addressing them, darn it! I am Blessed! Thank you! Much love to you and hugs to you!! xoxo

  3. Goldie!!!! I must say AR there is not much grass there for her to eat? I hope they supplement with hay or something…Glad she has you looking out for her 🙂 Great pix and so glad you are feeling superior and forging ahead…Go for it! That falcon by the way was stunning. Such regale birds. I hope you don’t get too much snow. I’m waiting to see here! Happy weekend ahead…Hugs…VK ❤

    1. Isn’t she beautiful, VK? There is not much grass because all the rain we’ve had has turned that pasture into a muddy mess. You should see it now. It’s a catastrophe. This horse eats grains and hay and I’m talking a lot! I’m the lucky one who has this magnificent gorgeous horse who trusts me and who is my friend. When she looks right into my eyes, it’s as though she is looking straight into my soul. What an experience! I wish I had my long lens for that falcon! And today! That falcon came into our backyard! I almost fell over! Never have I seen that bird and then to see him in our backyard tree? Whoa!! No I didn’t get a picture. I just looked. It snowed today ….. pretty but ….. it’s too early, darn it! Happy weekend ahead to you too, dear friend! xoxo

      1. I KNOW!!! I looked him up in one of my books and couldn’t believe he means stick to the health regimen you are on. AMAZING and what a huge encouragement from Mother!!!

      2. I just read over what you sent! WOW!! Oh WOW!!! For this bird to have “followed” me I believe he is now my totem animal. I am in awe! I don’t know what to say! I bookmarked this page so that I can read this over and over again! Thank you SO much for sending me this link, VK!! (((HUGS)))!!! xoxoxoxo

  4. Gorgeous photos and color! I have just gotten back on the daily exercise wagon, after falling off a few months ago. I’ve always eaten healthy foods, but that also can be cleaned up even more. Thanks for the motivation!

    1. Thank you for the compliment on my photography! As for you, Angeline, getting back on the daily exercise wagon, I am SO proud of you!! That is not easy to do yet the more you incorporate that into your life, the easier it becomes. Once health is compromised, as mine has become (not of my own doing!) it is of the utmost importance to do all you can to get that health back. Keep up the great work!!! You deserve a huge applause for your effort! Bless you! xo

    1. Thank you, Timothy! That Falcon appeared in my backyard today, something I have never seen. To be blown away is putting it mildly! I couldn’t move to get my long lens. I just didn’t know how long he’d be there and I did not want to miss one moment. And yes, my nutrition and exercise program took a long time for me to put together and finally I think I have all the pieces put together right. (smile)

    1. Thank you, Holly! Oh I do believe in the metaphysical. For you to have as a spirit guide the Peregrine, you are getting a huge wow from me!! I actually can “see” that in you. For real. Yes I do take my vitamins and so much more. (smile) (((HUGS)))!!! xo

    1. Jude, you should see my bird pictures when I have my long lens on …. 560mm. I thank you for saying it is an amazing shot but to me it’s not all that great. Hubby and I had a very busy day which has concluded that he will not be taking one supplement that I am. It’s a start. (smile) xo

  5. GUILTY!!! I’m sure I have sometimes called you ma’m but I assure you it was done in light jest in relation to whatever conversation it was in relation to.
    Regardless, my humble apologies if it caused any pain and I assure you that each and every soul that I see, is seen by their hearts and yours is shining a long way brighter than most of the population of this world Amy 😀 ❤️ 😀 ❤️ 😀 ❤️ 😀

    1. Aw, Mark, no guilt here whatsoever. Ma’am is a term of respect. In fact I used it just today in speaking to a woman on the phone as I made an appt. for myself. No worries!! My goodness! As for my heart, in order for you to see how bright it shines, just reflects to me just how brightly your heart shines as well. Much love to you, dear friend!! Much love!! xoxo

      1. And after all that I forgot to compliment you on these great fiery shots of autumn. It’s almost like walking through the glow of a golden rainbow. Well done, and thank you for sharing your light! 😀
        And I most certainly love the horse too, they are a beautiful animal. Just a slight habit of injuring themselves…and others if you get in the way 😀

      2. Thank you, Mark! I like your description of a golden rainbow regarding the landscape. There was a golden hue everywhere …. it was the time of day I shot these pictures. That horse (Bellissa) has stolen my heart. I just came from her muddy pasture. After giving her apples and carrots, she nearly kissed my face off. LOL That’s a big tongue licking my face! This horse is an ex-racer and yes she was injured with a fractured ankle. No more racing for her. She is SO smart and has such a gentle spirit. I trust her explicitly. Yet I know exactly where her hooves are and my feet are. xo

      3. Ah, so you have ‘really’ connected with her. You did say that you had got ‘close’. In that case you could lay down and sleep with her in the field. No horse will do that with humans around unless that connection is there with its hearts trust ❤️
        No wonder your singing in the forest. The next shots will be of all the wild animals following you everywhere. We’ll have to start calling you Saint Francis of Assisi. Well Saint Amy anyway 😂

      4. Oh how you made me laugh!! Thank you!! Saint Amy indeed! As for the pasture, right now it is naught but mud. All the rain we’ve had plus a horse that weights a ton, has turned that pasture into a muddy mess. No thanks. I’ll not lie on that pasture. Uh uh.

    1. Again I arrive late. *sigh* Dan, some days I swear my tail is not long enough to chase. (smile) Thank you for enjoying my pictures. We have snow on the ground here and I’m sorry I refuse to show that on my blog yet. It’s too early! There is plenty of time for me to show snow. I’m almost down to nothing picture wise unless I go back to get some flowers I never showed. I’ll see. For now, I’m finally breathing after running a marathon all day long. Hope you had a great day!

  6. Your words are filled with encouragement not boastful. Yes, it’s possible to reverse aging if you make the effort. I’ve also recently been called “miss” and it’s so funny. It’s all in the energy you exude more than anything. How your soul sings. I feel as though I continue to get younger. We are in such a similar place, my friend. ❤️🌹

    1. Bless you, Julie, for what you said. Bless you! I didn’t want to come across as boastful. I’m just so darn proud of me for working so hard at my health. I actually told a woman at the gym who I know about my one inch gain and she gave the glory to God. No way! Sorry! I get the credit. I did this. Bugs me to no end when people do that. Give credit where credit is due, you know what I mean? Yes my soul is singing and it feels so good! I’m SO happy for you about your progress. That doesn’t happen just sitting on a couch eating bonbons. SO proud of you, dear friend! My heart smiles as does my face! (((HUGS)))!!! xoxo

  7. As the title goes, your autumn pictures are gorgeous! They are cheerful that go well with your essay bout good diets and exercises; keeping your body well. Somehow, we don’t feel about body is one of the basis of our total well being and treated it as if it can take on anything we throw at it.

    1. Thank you, YC! I have had many health challenges to which I have come to cherish my body, caring for it in the best ways I know because if I do not, I won’t be able to continue walking, for one. I have high motivation to keep doing what I am, believe me!! May you have a great weekend!!

  8. It is good that they call older people, ma’am’ over there. In some countries, they say, ‘aunty’:) Your post proves that hard work and effort can work wonders. And gaining a couple of inches is an amazing side-effect. Lovely pics, as usual. Hope you continue to remain young, indulge in mother nature and stay clear of health issues.

    1. I agree that ma’am is a term of respect, especially in the southern states of USA. Yes I have proven over and over again that hard work and dedication do pay off! I’m still saying “pinch me” about the one inch gained. Bless you for your well wishes. They mean so much to me!! May you have a great weekend!! xo

  9. Such an amazing testimonial for taking care of your nutrition and exercise. Kudos, Amy! We’re about the same age and this is where you start to see those who have been good stewards and those that have not. Sadly, we seem to be in the minority. Keep leading the way to health, you go, girl! ❤

    1. Eliza, you sure do have that right …. it is about this time age-wise where those of us who have been diligently taking care of ourselves shine. You are also right that we are in the minority. It takes “work” to keep our bodies strong and it also takes will power to put quality nutrition into our bodies versus junk. Bless you for your kindness!! I have every intention in continuing what I am doing. I have a lot of motivation to do so!! Have a great weekend!! xo

  10. Well done Amy! That extra inch in height may prove very useful in crowds, watching parades or sporting events. You’ll be able to see lots of things that previously you’ve missed. Next target….living to be a hundred. No reason to think that it’s impossible with the type of life you lead.
