“Do not expect others to follow your way. When things always go your way, it is easy to become arrogant.” -The Treatise on the King of Treasures Samadhi

Sunday, May 13, 2018 was Mother’s Day in the United States. It was the worst Mother’s Day I can remember experiencing.

I’m writing this, I’m sharing this, for those amongst us whose hearts were covered and weighted with sadness. As I know not everyone had a great and blessed day being showered and pampered with love by themselves or loved ones.

Thomas had just returned to Reno from his visit with The Romano Duo (grandparents) in Arizona. He had much blunt and forthright thoughts to share about how unhappy he is with our situation and with Lillian’s inflexibilities and anxieties. I grabbed that hook and sank into a deep sadness of telling myself how much of a failure I am at providing for my kids, how much of a failure I am at being their parent.

Thomas wanted to go for a walk yesterday before heading to the airport. We didn’t have time for a full walk around, so instead we walked to the lake and stood for a few minutes. Such dramatic clouds and sky lately. Incredibly beautiful.

What a blessing … xoxo … Causes my heart to go pitter patter … xoxo

“I read Lillian’s book on a plane trip and having a few hours up my sleeve, I found myself lost in a wonderful world of imagination. Everything on and in this Earth having a reason to be and having a name. What a delight, what a beautiful soul Lillian is and projects this into her stories.

I recommend reading this magical book of tales and get lost in days gone by when the world was a nicer place to be in. You will close the book with a smile on your face and a feeling of just emerging from a wonderland. Well done Lillian, I love your mind and stories you share with us.” -Ailsa, Australia

Team TLC and Earth Day 2018

April 22 2018:

We spent as much time outside as possible today to show our love to Mama Gaia. Lillian and I took a very slow and relaxing walk around the lake, had fun with our shadows, found some cool tree shadows, and picked up trash. Then headed home to eat lunch on the patio.

Why Butterflies Float In The Sky by Lillian Darnell

Why Butterflies Float In The Sky ….. Lillian Darnell

On April 9th, I saw a butterfly flying across the sky and I got inspired to write a story about the butterfly.

Once in a land far away named Blossomia, a butterfly named Orchid Rose (nicknamed Rose) hovered low over the ground as she flew. Suddenly, Orchid gasped as a thought came to mind and landed on the ground safely … Go to the below link to read further …
