It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and remember.
Time, it certainly does fly by.
Yesterday was already the one year anniversary of my sister’s death. My mom & I were sitting on the bench at the cemetery talking about how fast the year went. Sometimes we still think her death was just a dream.
The best way for me to get out my emotions is through writing poetry. So here is one I wrote remembering my sister Lisa.
Prioritize, the list can wait
Because it will soon be too late
We say “tomorrow” in our exhaust Not realizing the time will soon be lost
Time it seems to quickly pass Slow down, you’re going way too fast
One day I go to pick up the phone But then I remember you’re never coming home Continue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and today I would like to take a pause and look at the phrase “just.”
A coworker was telling me a story at work the other day and at one point she said how she talks to her dog to let her know she is leaving. Then came the words “I know it’s stupid, it’s just a dog.” I don’t know about you but I am so tired of hearing people refer to animals as “just” anything. So I came up with a list of what I think they are just…
Just a creation of God Just a loyal friend Just a family member Just a living being Just a comforter
Just a stress reliever Just a joy to watch Just a joy to play with Just someone to come home to Just a snuggler Just created BEFORE humans Just improve their “owners” health Just teachers of responsibility Just LOVE!
Just a joy to watch
Here is what a Facebook follower friend of mine in her own words shared with me about her beloved cat Jasmine pictured above.
Jasmine chilling on the bed with me. I wonder if other people take pleasure in watching their pets enjoy themselves? From jumping on the bed and just enjoying each other’s company to watching her sniff the air whilst sat in the garden or getting her toys out the bowl I store them in and playing with them. I’m sure they do, but it often an unspoken pleasure of pet ownership when in comes to cats. But I enjoy watching my cat just enjoy herself around the house from sunbathing to cackling at birds out the window or sniffing the breeze.
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and to share a little about me and a little about you.
I have shared before how I have changed directions with my blog a few times as I am figuring out my journey of advocacy. Well recently I redid my “About” Page and I wanted to share the link to that page on my site so you can read my more current plan. If you read most of my posts then you may already “know me” and my current direction.
Now for all of you! Some of you have been with me since the beginning and some have just started following me. Regardless of how long, I feel so blessed to have a community of people who share my love for animals, poetry, photography/editing, and God. You may not share all of those same “loves” as I do but you most likely share at least one of them. I am just so happy to get connected and to get to know you all better.
I put together a collage of photos of just a small part of the people in my community. Continue reading →
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy some poetry (at least I hope you will). The picture below is one of my favorites. So the up close image of the side of my hand was mistaken for an elephant’s foot (it really was by someone at work). I still love it because it is my hand and Cino’s paw. It’s very special to me. 🙂
HAND AND PAW
A gift from God
For now you’re mine
Put your paw in my hand
And together we’ll be fine
A gentle pet to your paw
You lift it up & reach back
A silent form of communication
Of love we do not lack
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and maybe consider making a change.
Change can be hard, but it can also be good. It depends on what kind of change it is. We usually make changes when we feel the need. It’s good to take some time every now & then to reflect on any areas of our lives we may need to change.
The change I am making and want to share with you (with the help of Cino) is to my blog website.
