Lessons I Learned From My Parents



You Raise Me Up  -By Josh Groban

One of the most beautiful and moving songs with so much meaning.

Life Lessons I  learned, and try my best to live by.

Live a pure organic live. Be positive and surround yourself with positive people. Find your inner peace.
Live every day like if it is your last. Never take anything for granted.
Don't live in the past, as what has happened is already finished. Everything has a reason,
and it is meant to be. Live in the present moment.
Cherish each breath, be grateful for each blessing. Be gentle, kind, loving and compassionate.
Find the most valuable way to live, and have no fear.
Do everything the very best you can do. Contribute to the happiness and well-being of others,
and strengthen the foundation of goodness and humanity in the depts of your live. Feel compassion towards people, and support worthy social causes. Remember, ones happiness is based on building
a solid inner self.
We all have limitless potential for wisdom, courage, hope, confidence, compassion, vitality, and endurance.
No dream is to big to strive for. Focus, and walk with confidence and acceptance into the future.
Appreciate the wonder of life. Life is an adventure, so live your life to the fullest.
We are the creators of our own destiny. It's all up to you.

With much love,
Diana


I would like to share this Quote:

To see a World in a grain of sand,
and a Heaven in a wild flower.
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
and Eternity in an hour.

- William Blake

Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

                                            
               In Memory of my beloved Papi



Helmut Gailing * 6/25/1937 - 6/06/2011


                                 Your favorite Flower - Purple Roses-



You loved his Music -Israel Kamakawiwo'ole- Especially, "Somewhere over the Rainbow"
                 You were and always will be the best Papi in the World!!!


Dear Papi,


I really don't know where to start. I have so many beautiful memories of you, I'll never forget them. I am  so endlessly sad that you had to leave so soon. 
So, maybe I will start by thanking you. Thank you so much for all that you have done. Without You - my life would have not begun. You were the kind of Father every little girl wishes for. You were a good role model , very very sweet and loving to your children. You possessed grace, patience, and kindness, and you were able to handle every situation in your most loving way. You were the most calm, peace loving Man I have ever known. You were the kind of Father to share the most treasured secrets with. I thank you for keeping them and also for the many good advise you gave me along the way. Without you, Papa, I wouldn't be the woman I am today. You have build a strong foundation, and no one can take that away. I have grown with your values, and I'm very glad I did. We have talked about the things that fill a life with love and pain. But our timeless golden time unspoken, still remains. 
I did not see you very often, since I chose to live my life on the other side of the world, but I have taken You and Mama  along with me in my thoughts and my heart. In many ways I AM like you , but I pray that one day I find the peace that You had.
Now Daddy, I let you go to that wonderful place. I wish you rest, and may God welcome you into his peaceful place that is without ending, with no more pain- only happiness. May you watch the roses bloom now and may the dreams that you dream of come true, way up above. 
Until the day we may see each other again. I will always love you!
From your forever grateful daughter, 


Diana


My Father was survived by my Mother, Inge & My Sister, Andrea
He was loved dearly by my Husband, Louie and his Grand Children, Nicolaj, Nastassja, Desiree & Tristan

DU WARST UND DU WIRST IMMER DER BESTE PAPA IN DER WELT SEIN

Lieber Papi,

Ich weiss wirklich nicht wo ich anfangen kann. Ich habe so viele schone erinnerungen an Dich,
die ich nie vergessen werde. Ich bin so endlos traurig das Du schon so fruh von uns gegangen bist.
So, vieleicht Ich fange an bei Dir zu danken.
Ohne Dich - mein leben waere nicht angefangen. Du bist ein Vater gewesen den sich jedes kleines madchen wuenscht. Du warst ein gutes Vorbild, sehr sehr su/s und liebevoll zu Deinen Kindern.
Du hast Gnade, Geduld und Herzlichkeit besessen, und Du hast jede situation in Deinen liebevollsten
weg angegriffen. Du warst der meiste Ruhevolle, Friedensvolle Mann den ich je gekannt habe.
Du warst ein Vater mit dem mann jedes geschaetzte geheimnis teilen kann.
Ich danke Dir fur das Du sie behalten hast, und auch fur die vielen guten Ratgebe die Du mir auf meinen weg gegeben hast.
Ohne Dich, Papa, Ich wuerde nicht die Frau sein die ich heute bin. Du hast eine starke Grundlage gebaut, und keiner kann das weg nehmen. Ich bin gewachsen mit Deinen Werten, und ich bin froh das ich habe. Wir haben gereded ueber die dinge das ein ganzes leben fuellt mit Liebe und Schmerz.
Aber unsere zeitlose "goldene Zeit" - unausgesprochen- bleibt.
Ich habe Dich nicht sehr often gesehen, seit ich waehlte mein leben auf der anderen seite der welt zu leben, aber ich habe Dich und Mama mit mir genommen in meinen gedanken und meinen herz.
In vielen wegen Ich Bin wie Du, aber ich bete das ich eines tages den frieden finde den Du hattest.
Jetzt Daddy, Ich lasse Dich gehen zu den wundervollen plazt das kein ende hat, mit keinen schmerzen mehr - nur "Gluecklichkeit"
Moegst Du jetzt die roten rosen bluehen sehen und moegst Du die Traume die Du treumst wirklichkeit werden, weit oben!
Bis zu den Tag wenn wir uns wiedersehen moegen. Ich werde Dich immer lieben!
Von Deiner fuer immer dankbaren Tochter,
Diana

Er war herzlich geliebt bei meinen Ehemann Louie, und seinen Enkelkindern, Nicolaj, Nastassja, Desiree & Tristan

Happy Mothers Day!




A Mother's Love
There are times when only a Mother's love can understand our tears,
can soothe our disappointments, and calm all of our fears.
There are times when only a Mother's love can share the joy we feel
when something we've dreamed about quite suddenly is real.
There are times when only a Mother's faith can help us on life's way
and inspire us the confidence we need from day to day.
For  a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith and a Mother's steadfast love
were fashioned by the Angels and sent from God above.



                                           Mama                      Me                Andrea
                                          (Summer 1980)
Dear Mama!

You are my Mother and my dearest friend.
And even if oceans do us part
you will always hold a very special place in my heart.
Throughout my life you're always near.
Thank you Mama for helping me guide my way
with your wisdom and your endless love.
You are the sunshine to light my day.

I love you Mama!

Your Diana

Liebe Mama,

Du bist meine Mutter und meine liebste freundin.
Auch wenn uns Ozeane trennen, Du wirst immer
ein speziellen platz in meinen herz halten.
Durch mein leben Du wirst immer nahe sein.
Vielen Dank Mama fur mir zu helfen mein leben zu
leiten mit Deiner Weisheit und Deiner enlosen liebe.
Du bist ein Strahl von Sonnenschein in meines tages.

Ich liebe Dich,
Deine Diana




       A Special Wish For All Moms

This Earth Hour, go beyond the hour!



We all have a responsibility for the sustainability of our planet and each of us can make a difference.

I will continue to recycle, and buy locally produced goods and services thereby eliminating thousand of pounds of carbon by reducing fossil fuel transportation demands.
I will also continue to grow my organic fruit and vegetable garden, heal the soil where I can and keep it alive.



Reduce your Carbon Footprint to live an Eco Friendly Life. Here is a list of simple things you can do:

* Replace the light bulbs in your home with energy saving, long life CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs
*Replace exterior lights with solar-powered ones
*Use rechargeable batteries
*Turn off when not in use (lights, television, DVD player, HiFi, computer, etc.
*Turn down central heating slightly (just 2 degrees will make a significant saving)
*Install thermostatic valves on your radiators
*Insulate your hot water tank
*Recycle your grey water (use for watering plants)
*Water your garden in the evening as this will save water
*For short journeys either walk or cycle
*Buy locally produced goods and services
*Buy organic fruits and vegetables from local farmers markets thereby eliminating harmful insecticides and pesticides that is otherwise used on our planet.
*Filter your own water, rather than buying bottled water
*Wash clothing with cold water as much as possible
*Hang clothing outside to air dry whenever possible
*Recycle as much as possible

Hello 2011 !

A new decade with new inspirations, dreams, hopes & wishes.

This morning we were greeted with a beautiful winter wonderland. We got about a good of snow over night, and the first thing we did after breakfast was taking a long walk outside with the kids, throwing snowballs, making snow angels and simply soaking in the beautiful view. Even our youngest son, Tristan had fun seeing and touching snow for the first time in his life.









                                
                                   Wishing you a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year !!!
