Festival of Light! In Thai it is called Loy Krathong

On November 17th the Thai people celebrated the Festival of Light.
In Thai it is called Loy Krathong.
The date is every year different, because it is the Full Moon of the 12th Thai (moon)month.
It was also the beginning of New Year in the Sukhothai period.

Thai people make beautiful boats (krathongs) out of banana leafs, lots of flowers, some incense and a candle.
To make it personal, some people put a little bit of themselves into the krathong, such as a hair or nail clippings and off course a few baht for good fortune.
The reason for sending the krathong on the water is to honor Mae Kong Ka, the goddess of the water.
Mae Kong Ka provides the water and there for she is bringer of food (rainwater for crops), transportation (rivers) and drink (drinking water). Also the Thai people ask forgiveness for using too much water, and to wash away the sins of the past year.
When the boat floats away, so do your sins.

Mamma Buddha was at Loy Krathong this year. And under a beautiful full moon, on a Thai beach, I put a Krathong in the sea for all of my loved ones.
And I lit a lantern, and while doing this I had to whisper a wish to it. It had to be a wish for all of you. So I made this wish; I wish for all my Sunflowers “Love, Good Health & Acceptance”.

Mama Buddha.

It is time to tell you why I smile in my soul all day. And I have been smiling already for a while now.To be honest, I am not sure why I haven’t told you yet this wonderful news, because I know it for quite a long time now.
But today I am going to tell you…here it comes…I am becoming a Happy Grandma again!
Happy Jr and his wife Happy Mom are expecting a second child. You know they have Happy Girl, and now they expect Happy Boy! How lucky can you be?
Everything is going very good with this young family, and my soul can’t stop smiling.

I think you can understand why…mmmm babies.

As always with love,
Mrs. Happy

Thank you, my friend!

Thank you, my friend!

Thank you, my friend!

Thank you, my friend!

Today I am grateful for having good friends. It is absolutely not the amount of friends that makes you happy. But knowing you have a few people that you can talk to, and they listen.

Just listen and not judge you. Maybe they add a few words of wisdom to your story. They show a bit of understanding, but the most important thing, they just listen and give you a piece of their time. Good friends think you are worthy and special; so special they want to spend some of their precious time with you. When my friends have time for me, it makes me feel special, loved and appreciated.

And I want to thank my friends for giving me this great feeling.

As always with love,
Mrs. Happy
