Sunday Pause (Paws): For Family

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and spend some time with family.

For this post, I have included pictures of just a few of my family members. They are photos I have taken recently while spending time with them. (Note: The photos of my parents didn’t have the greatest quality, so I did a lot of playing around with them and decided to turn them into more of “artwork” type photos. That is why they look as they do.)

My mom and I recently had the most enjoyable time going for a walk by a man-made body of water. We found a swing to sit on and we just kicked back, relaxed, and enjoyed the view while sipping on a Chai Latte from Starbucks (my favorite and I mean FAVORITE drink).

Sunday Pause (Paws): Hello

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a break from the busyness of the week.

Cino wanted to start today with a little hello. (Turn up the volume)

The friendly word hello. We say hello when we answer the phone, when we meet someone, and as we pass by someone.

When you pass by someone in a hallway or on the street, do you think you should say hello? Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Just A Rose

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful things in life such as a picture of an adorable dog holding a rose in his mouth and a good poem. I happen to have both of these for you today.

The poem is actually not mine. It is from Colin Chappell’s new book of poetry called “Just Thinking.” It’s called “Just a Rose” and in the video below you will hear Colin reading it. I love his accent! Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Take A Look Around

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and notice what’s around you.

Before I begin this post, I just wanted to mention that each one of these pictures were taken by me over this past week (except for the very last image). Some of them were taken with my phone which takes really bad pictures. They would have just been bad quality pictures if I left them alone, so I had fun playing with them and making each one look different.

Just in this past week I have seen a lot of beauty around me. From the flowers above to the beauty in nature as seen in the photos below.  Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Really, Take a Pause!

It’s Sunday! A time to kick back, relax, and reflect.

Many of you know about the loss of my sister. This has been a tough week, going to work, trying to act as if everything is fine. Our family has not had time for closure because we haven’t yet had the funeral. We plan to have it this week, maybe this will help a little.

I wrote a poem for today expressing some feelings I have been having through all of this and have heard other people express they felt when they lost a loved one. I hope you enjoy it.

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
That one of your loved ones is gone
And now your heart takes a fall

So your race takes a pause
You put the brakes on the spinning top
You look around and wonder
Why doesn’t the rest of the world stop?

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Pause for Healing

It’s Sunday! A time for kicking back, relaxing and taking a break from it all.

I am going to keep this post short & sweet. Our family is going through something right now. It is a sad time for us. I do plan to share about it in an upcoming “Tuesday Tale.” So basically…

Another week has gone by
and I simply want to say,
Be sure to take a pause
and enjoy your Sunday!
