It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and hang out with those we love.
Here we are again it’s another Sunday
And we’re stopping by to say hey
So why don’t you grab a chair and sit
So you and I can catch up a bit
Here it has been extremely hot
So we have been sweating a lot
Mom’s busy hoping for a new home
How nice for more room for me to roam
We mourned the anniversary of the death of mom’s sis
No matter how much time passes she is always missed
Planning time to get together with those we hold dear
Catching up on adventures & celebrating another year
But today we’re just hanging out
Because that’s what this day is all about
So that’s what’s up with us, how about you?
We’d love to hear what you’ve been up to
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and admire nature such as a beautiful butterfly or a fresh breeze that can do wonders for the soul .
To me one of the most relaxing things is to sit outside when there is a breeze. I’ll even close my eyes and just focus on it. There is something about it that is so comforting, not only to provide coolness when it’s hot out, but comfort for the soul.
Today is the second anniversary of my sister’s death and I remember when a breeze (and a butterfly) comforted me when I was grieving the loss. I wrote a poem about it.
The Butterfly and the Breeze
Their beautiful and colorful wings
Take them high and low, they are free
Fluttering all around us
It is not an uncommon thing to see
But I know on this one day
It was not just a butterfly
In my confusion and dismay
It was my sister stopping by
It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and do some thinking.
I‘m not sure how long you have been blogging but have you ever noticed how sometimes you seem to have a lot of interaction (or Likes) on your posts and sometimes hardly at all? When it is hardly at all it makes you start to wonder why. Is it that your blogging community is busy and just not seeing your posts or maybe they just don’t like that particular post?
Some of you have been with me for a while on this blogging journey. You know that I have changed things along the way as probably many of us have. Lately it kind of seems like I am not getting a lot of interaction. It made me start wondering if it could be because I have been using cartoon images a lot more often and not writing as much. I started thinking about that and if I should try to change my posts. But I realized I really don’t want to, at least not right now, because I am finding joy in creating the cartoons.
Thinking about all of this made me also think about how we worry about our popularity or if we are fitting in. Not just with social media but with everything. But is that really what matters?
