Sunday Pause (Paws): Time

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

They may be pretty and we may have been doing them for hundreds of years, but it is now that we are truly paying attention to what affects fireworks have on our animal friends.

A Different View

A DIFFERENT VIEW

God created all the animals
THEN he created man
Trusting us with dominion over them
That was his beautiful plan

Dominion means power & control
Authority, command & sway
Is your view of that bad?
Because that is not God’s way

Father’s Day

I don’t usually write two posts in one day but I wrote a poem that reflects some things I have been feeling lately and wanted to share it. I also thought since today is Father’s Day that anyone who has lost their father, doesn’t have one around, or doesn’t have a good relationship with theirs might be encouraged. We all have a Father available if we just look up.

When you hear about another shooting
And your emotions are starting to buildup
It’s easy to start feeling scared
But I am going to choose to look up

When you hear about another abused animal
And you’re crying for that pup
It’s easy to start feeling hopeless
But I am going to choose to look up Continue reading

They say a dog is a man’s best friend
But any animal is special in it’s own way
If you have that beautiful human & animal bond
Then to you I wish a Happy Dad’s Day Continue reading
