Sunday Pause (Paws): Resolutions Are Not For Me

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come up with new year resolutions…or not.

I‘ve never been one to make resolutions. I’ve actually never been one that got that excited about New Years in general. So we change one number on checks when we write the date…wait does anybody write checks anymore? So we’ll soon be another year older…wait unless you’re birthday is at the end of the year. So we’ll have another January, February, March, April…well you get the point.

I hope you enjoy the poem I wrote for this post.

NO RESOLUTIONS ARE NOT FOR ME

One day out of three hundred sixty five
Doesn’t magically make me strive
Any day I don’t like what’s in the mirror
Means I need to kick myself in the rear Continue reading

All Are In His Plan

Sometimes I create images that say it all for the post.

Even THEY have been in his plan. The question is are our eyes & ears open to what role we are to play in their life?

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Very Merry Christmas To You

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the holidays!

It’s hard to believe tomorrow is already Christmas Eve. Time got away from me this year that I didn’t even send out Christmas cards. I have never done that before. Since it seems too late to send any out now I made one to post & share with all of my friends, family and with all of you. The picture of Cino & I is from a photo shoot a friend did months back. As you can see Cino LOVED it!

Things will be busy for the next few days for me as I am sure they will be for you. That’s why I am dedicating this Sunday’s post to wishing you a Merry Christmas. I hope you enjoy the photo and here is a poem I wrote. Continue reading

What Is Your Pet To You?

A pet is not “just” a pet. Oh no.

A pet is not just a pet
But one of the best friends you’ll ever get
Therapy when things are bringing you down
The ability to turn a frown around
Little angels that can help heal
It’s amazing how they make you feel
Your comforter, therapist, healer, friend, & baby
A pet is so many things including family

They are not “just” anything except “just an amazing creation and an amazing gift.”

Cino is so many things to me. I put a few of them in the image below. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Friendship

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 wrong Continue reading
