Waves of Agony

image

 

Waves of agony swirl through me:
Sometimes I can’t eat;
Other times I eat too much.

Waves of agony confine me:
Some days I find strength to press on;
On occasion all I want to do is cry.

Waves of agony will wash me:
Learning to swim and not sink;
Hoping to make it to shore.

Press pause

image

 

Press pause
to catch my breath.

Press pause
to clear my head.

Press pause
to see things as they are.

Press pause
to analyze my feelings.

Press pause
to keep my heart safe from harm.

Press pause
to let the tears cleanse my soul.

Press pause
to find some composure.

Press pause
to shift my focus.

Press pause
to find strength to move on.

My broken pieces

image

 

I saved them —
the broken pieces of my heart
left behind by years of heartache and pain.

I placed them in a box —
a safe place out of reach
from any further damage.

I carried on  —
hoping to mend them one day
but somehow life got in the way.

I needed them when we met —
but couldn’t quite remember
my secret hiding place.

I felt your lips meet mine —
our broken pieces are still locked away;
we both need mending still.

I don’t know if we’ll fit perfectly —
but I like having your hand to hold.
I think the healing has begun.

You stand close.
I lose my composure.

You flirt.
I feel my heart race.

You ask leading questions.
I respond coyly.

You get the message.
I expected you would.

You move in closer.
I can feel your warmth.

You stare teasingly.
I bite my lip.

You touch deliberately.
I feel a thrill.

You sense my excitement.
I confirmed your suspicions.

You awaken my senses.
I am an animal craving your heat.

Hello Lovelies,

Find me on my new blog called Anonymously Yours.

Here’s a sample of some of my new work. Enjoy!🌷

Anonymously yours,

Depth.
Our conversations
should be meaningful
deeper than just the surface.

Worth.
Our values should go beyond
the man-made idols we create.
Melancholy regret
should be something
we try to avoid
as we strive in earnest
to learn from our past mistakes.

Respect.
In order to respect each other,
we must first respect
the Creator who made us.
He gave us guidelines
for how we should treat
our fellow man.
No one should be made
to feel like a toy —
played with then discarded
when the amusement dwindles.

Balance.
Be fair, it’s that simple!
What’s good for you
should also be good for me.
Entitlement is the reward
of effort and input.
Words and actions
should be in sync.
A gift given from the heart
should not come
with strings attached.
Let reciprocity be free
and not pressured.

Love.
Show me your heart
as I will show you mine.

Food on Friday # 42 California

I have a 4 yr old and she’s a picky eater. Needless to say, I’m always searching for new food ideas we can both try and hopefully love. I’ve even gone as far as to institute ‘Fun Food Weekend’ at my house, which means she has to try a new food when it’s the weekend. During the week she can stick to the things she likes (because quite frankly, I don’t have the time or energy to fight with her over food), but come weekends we experiment! So far my new strategy has been working well and she is putting up less of a fight. Yay!!!

I always enjoy reading Jack’s ‘Food on Friday’ posts, because I get many great ideas for new foods and I’m sure you’d love to get in on the action too. So that’s enough chatter from me, let’s jump into his selections for this week. Enjoy! 🌷

Don’t get me wrong, I like California, but sometimes the food there owes a lot to everywhere else.  So, for this week’s Food on Friday I’ve tried to come up with some dishes that I think would go down well with my friend, ‘the girl riding shotgun’ and especially dishes that aren’t so Mexican or Spanish in flavour.

No, that didn’t make much sense to me either.  But here are some great recipes from some great cooks.

First up this week, from we have this hoisin salmon with zucchini slaw from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest.

Also from Tieghan there’s this great looking heirloom tomato and zucchini galette with honey and thyme.

“My children are the reason I laugh, smile and want to get up every morning.” – Gena Lee Nolin

“What it’s like to be a parent: It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.” – Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding

“If I had my child to raise over again: I’d build self-esteem first and the house later. I’d finger paint more and point the finger less. I would do less correcting and more connecting. I’d take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes. I would care to know…
