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).
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 →
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.
Flowers that were given to me from my place of employment for the loss of my sister
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 →
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?Continue reading →
