We’re All Lamenting

Hello all. I hope this post finds you all well, healthy, & safe.

A while ago when this pandemic first began I had posted that I had so much to say but couldn’t form the words to say it. I am still feeling that way but thought I would give it a shot. Expressing yourself through writing is very healing. It is the reason I like to write poetry and it is one of the reasons I blog, as it may be the reason for many of you.

The reason I decided to give it a try today is because of the past few weeks LIVE service messages. They were about how we are all going through a time of lamenting. Though in this time of lamenting we may be ignoring the process of healing. We all want things to get back to “normal” as quickly as possible. We want to get from A to Z as quickly as possible.

People are dying, committing suicide, fighting, abuse is prevalent (we hear about in domestic cases but I’m sure the animals/pets are suffering terribly too as we know many farm animals are), crime is up, we’re experiencing job loss and financial crisis. To top it off Continue reading

The Real Super Heroes

I love animals! OK, no surprise. But I also love being creative and I can appreciate others creativity as well. I came across the image below and thought it was the coolest painting. This guy found such a creative way to honor the health care workers.

Once I saw this I knew I wanted to make a super hero image. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Celebrate Every Life

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back & relax. For me it’s time to pause and celebrate. It’s Cino’s birthday! Well, actually it was yesterday.

Every life is worth celebrating because every life matters. 🥳

We wish you a Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Celebrate Them Even If You Can’t Celebrate WITH Them

It’s Sunday! It’s Mother’s Day! 💐Time to let them know how much they mean to us.

This Mother’s Day is quite different for a lot of us though. We can’t actually celebrate with them. 😒

But…we can still celebrate them.

Pet moms…you’re not forgotten!

Happy Sunday! Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Are You?

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and that means…push the pause button.

My sister’s birthday was this past week which got me thinking about her. She passed away a few years ago at the young age of 53. It was quite unexpected. I wrote the following poem shortly after that. It seems kind of fitting for what we’re all going through right now since the main message is about stopping and slowing down. It really is hard though, isn’t it? But it’s in times like these that we can be forced to.

THE WORLD DOESN’T STOP

The world is so busy
The world is so fast
Treating life like a race
How quickly time is passed

Then one day comes
When you receive a call
