Sunday Pause (Paws): Romp & Play In The Snow

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and have some fun.

Brrr…baby it’s cold outside. But that doesn’t stop a lot of people (and animals) from still getting out there and having some fun.

Do you all really know
How fun it is to play in the snow?
Sure it is pretty cold
But the joy it brings never gets old

My friend’s dog, Bogey.

So I think I’ll spend my day
Outside where I can romp & play
A Happy Sunday I wish to you
I hope you go out and have some fun too

Happy Sunday!

What Is Your Pet To You?

A pet is not “just” a pet. Oh no.

A pet is not just a pet
But one of the best friends you’ll ever get
Therapy when things are bringing you down
The ability to turn a frown around
Little angels that can help heal
It’s amazing how they make you feel
Your comforter, therapist, healer, friend, & baby
A pet is so many things including family

They are not “just” anything except “just an amazing creation and an amazing gift.”

Cino is so many things to me. I put a few of them in the image below. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Friendship

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and be thankful for friends.

We all have our highs and our lows in life. If you read my post from last Sunday then you know I’m kind of at a low right now. But during this low I’ve been feeling love & support around me from some people that I didn’t even know cared. I don’t know where I’d be without them. I wrote the following poem as an outlet for what I’ve been going through and to express gratitude for the support.

WITH THE HELP OF YOUR FRIENDS

It’s an emotional journey
This thing called life
Sometimes filled with peace
And sometimes filled with strife

Chaos everywhere you turn
The world is not in a good place
Sometimes making it hard
To deal with challenges you face

Emotions are building up
You’ve kept them bottled up too long
You’re brought down to your knees
Trying to figure out what’s going wrong Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): It Might Be An Angel

its-sunday-aafbt

Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some poetry.

I wrote a poem to go along with what I think is an adorable photo of Cino that I recently got with my new camera. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

IT MIGHT BE AN ANGEL

When I look at that sweet face
I see an angel among this place
For me the word “just” doesn’t exist
Your needs are always high on my list Continue reading

Teaching By Example

I WOULD RATHER

The circus is in town
Everyone is going there
The kids would have a good time
But I would rather teach them to care

Tricks that are sure to amaze
Entertaining the crowd all night
It’s an event for the whole family
But I would rather teach them what’s right

Clowns with big feet & a red nose
Elephants, lions, tigers, & bears
It’s quite the variety show
But I would rather teach them what’s fair
