Worth saving…

 

Confused,
she attempted to let go
of a situation she couldn’t comprehend.

Uncertain,
she pondered the reason
for her presence in his life.

Frustrated,
she questioned if what they had
was worth saving.

Relieved,
he asked her to be patient,
to give him a little more time.

Surprised,
he held on tighter
than she thought he ever would.

Elated,
she was comforted to know
he cared enough to ask her to stay.

Gazing at your eyes

 

Running my fingers
through your hair…

Tracing the outline
of your dimpled cheeks…

Gazing at your eyes
as they stare into mine…

Watching that seductive smile
grow across your lips…

Knowing you’re about to do
something rediculously amazing…

You get me every time…

I like it here…

 

I like it here…
The atmosphere is mellow,
I can relax and breathe slow,
I can converse one on one.
I can chill and enjoy the ride.

I like it here…
I’m myself again.
The hurt has turned to healing.
The sadness has turned to laughter.
The heartache has been replaced by butterflies.

I like it here…
It feels great to ‘start fresh’.
It feels great to forget the past.
It feels great to be by your side.
It feels great to make fantasies real.

I like it here…
There’s peace, there’s laughter;
There’s fun, there’s intense passion;
There’s a melding of our minds;
There’s us wanting more of each other.

I like it here…
I feel comfortable on your arms.
I light up when I see your smile.
I see hope when I look in your eyes.
I am blessed to have you in my life.

Do you not know where your mouth is?

image
 

She spills her food.
I ask jokingly,
“Do you not know
where your mouth is?”
She looks at me upstartedly saying,
“Yes I do!!!”

This has been a running gag
at my house for some time.
The expression on her face
is usually priceless.

So here I sit alone,
savoring her absence
and my midday breakfast,
sipping my coffee left-handedly.

Oops! There’s a spill!
So I ask myself jokingly,
“Do you not know
where your mouth is?”
I chuckle to myself as I respond,
“Yes I do!”

Missing Nina

image

Clenched in her fist
She held the red pendant
Given to her
By her best friend Nina.

The memories of
Their childhood fun together
Flooded her mind endlessly.
She was motionless.

How sad to think
Her best friend was now gone!
Such a beautiful spirit.
Such an independent soul.

The funeral was just 2 hours away.
She still had no clue what to say.
A eulogy? How inappropriate!
Nina visits her all the time.

They sit and talk and laugh for hours.
To her, Nina was very much alive.
How does one speak of someone
Who is alive as if they were dead?

“Mary honey, it’s time to go say goodbye…”
“OK mom, I’ll be right there!”
Mary walked into the chapel
And stood at the opening of the casket.

There, in a beautiful pink dress,
Laid her childhood friend.
Leaning in close,
Mary kissed her cheek.

Then, she whispered in Nina’s ear,
“How do I speak of you
Without using the phrase
I see dead people?”

 

There was a knock on the door…

 

Jack:
Mary, you’ve been
locked in there for ages.
Please let me in?
Can we please take about this?
Mary please let me explain?

 

Mary had been crying for so long that she drifted off to sleep. She hadn’t thought about her friend Nina much since she left Missouri. She needed to get away from her problems for a while. Perhaps it was time to pay Nina’s grave a visit.

Parting is such sweet sorrow

image

 

Today, I placed many of my treasured possessions, into the hands of others. They served me well. They gave much joy. I loved them dearly. I was reluctant to part with them, but delicately placed them into the hands of others in hopes their new owners would love them as much as I did.

Letting go lightened my financial burden but warmed my heart knowing that someone might also be enriched by my gifts.

Recycle the treasures, share the love.
Letting your love flow freely allows it to float into the arms of someone who may truly appreciate it. In so doing, you too will be richly blessed.

My darling,
I must let go of you now,
For I must toil for our daily bread,
But I will return to you in the morrow,
For it is you to whom my heart belongs.

My friends,
I must say goodbye this season,
For I must resume my duties after good tidings,
But I will cherish our festivities,
For tis you I choose to be my brethering.

My precious treasure,
I must let go of you now,
Though you have given me much joy,
So you may give pleasure to another,
For in giving shall I also receive.

My happiness,
I must part with you for this period,
As my heart is full of grief,
But I will see you on the other side,
For tears bring cleansing and clarity.

My sadness,
I must bid you adieu,
As I exchange you for laughter,
But fear not I will visit again
For true joy comes from understanding pain.

To return,
One must first depart,
So as you read these words
Don’t be sad that this poem ends
For it only signifies there is a new one to begin
And we shall all meet again.

Farewell my darlings, I love you all.

Hugs,
A
😔🌷☺

Things I thought I’d never say…

image

 

This is not a restaurant!
And even if it were,
I’d never let you
Act like this to a waiter!
Now sit down,
Eat what’s in front of you,
And stop being a little brat!!!!

*******

Oh the wonderful joys of parenting!!! 😀

Have you always wanted to be a published writer? Have you always fantasized about being famous — seeing your name in print? Well here’s a good reason why that’s probably a bad idea! But don’t take my word for it, watch the following video and decide for yourself.

He’s not finished with me yet…

What is my purpose on this earth?
I’ve been struggling with this question for many years, and even more over the last 3 and a half yrs. I’ve taken to studying God’s word daily in an effort to better understand His teachings and instructions but I am still unsure what His plans are for my life.

This morning my daily devotional text message was from Romans chapter 8 and it read as follows:

Romans: 8.
28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
30. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Bible Offline

Though I’m still studying the book of Numbers, seeing this passage from Romans has given me a bit of hope especially as it comes in the beginning of a brand new year! Perhaps it was meant to remind me that I need to keep working on my faith for at times it may be weak. Perhaps it was meant to remind me that even if I don’t know what God has planned for me, unlike when He promised the children of Israel the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’, I still need to believe that whatever it is it will be something good — something beyond my wildest dreams.

So today I feel blessed to be reminded that God is up to ‘something’ and all I have to do is trust Him and wait for His wonderful surprise.

My year seems off to a wonderful start and I pray that yours is too.

Best wishes to you all…

Hugs,
A.

He left her pale and static…

image

 

She rose from what seemed
Like an eternal slumber.
Peering out the window
Into black night,
She wished for a full moon.

An unusual stillness
Permeated the air
Fueling her uneasiness.
A chill ran through her.

Suddenly, the floorboards
Creaked in the distance,
Calling her attention
To the possibility
Of an intruder.

She froze,
Reluctant to move,
For fear of calling
Attention to herself.
She felt defenseless!

She scanned the room
For a possible weapon,
Only to discover
Her pale, unclothed body
Laying static in the bed.

How could this be?
