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 wrongContinue 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 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
