A Quote Made Me Look At Myself


don't give upThis came across my Facebook this morning and I stared it at for a while. I thought about how I come across to people. Do I make you happy or sad? Do I upset you by my words?

I have always been the type of person who doesn’t like to hurt anyone if at all possible. This has side-effects though. It can cause me to be backed in corners I don’t want to be in. It can make me say yes when I really want to say no.

I have been working on trying to stand up more on my feet and think about me. I hate that in a way though. My mom always taught me to think of others first and myself last, so this is a hard habit to break.

I have written many poems on here, shared music that I love. I have whined and cried out to you while dealing with my brother’s illness. I have been a very needy gal this past year. Even today, I still need encouragement to go forward. You have taught me to remember the good memories. You have shown me that I am worthy of stating how I feel about various things.

I was thinking of all this and then I stopped as I thought; have I helped anyone else or has it all been about me? I hope that somehow I have made a difference in a life somewhere out there. I hope that maybe one story I wrote saved someone from a sad day. I don’t know if I did or not.

I just want to say so many of you have been here for me. I pray that I have been there for you at one point or another and I didn’t make you feel unimportant as I value your input and friendships very much.

Invisible Love



Invisible Love

For God so loved the world

Did he choose  the lucky ones

What about the poor

Did he only see the beauty

Or all that came through the door.

Did he leave us and then part

To make it on our own

Did he wave to us goodbye

Or has  his light but always shown.

Did he give us a heart

Did  he give us eyes to see

Did he give us all our senses

Or do you think he forgot about me?

I know…

For God so loved the world

Did he choose  the lucky ones

What about the poor

Did he only see the beauty

Or all that came through the door.

 

Did he leave us and then part

To make it on our own

Did he wave to us goodbye

Or has  his light but always shown.

 

Did he give us a heart

Did  he give us eyes to see

Did he give us all our senses

Or do you think he forgot about me?

 

I know in fact we are special

He gave his all to fill

The love he knows we need

If only we do his will.

 

Although we feel alone at times

And like no one really cares

I know that he walks beside me

No doubt he really cares.

 

So the next time I am down

And feeling all to low

I will kneel down on my knees

Asking him to lead where I must go.

Look Outside the Box


Life is hard here at home. You all know it by following my blog. I try very hard to find one thing that I can see to show me life is still alive and hope is still something I can cling to.

Today, I raced down to the mailbox to see if a gift has arrived that Al; http://kattermonran.com, has arranged for my brother, Al.

When I came back I heard some strange sounds. I looked up into the skies and these were flying in circles above our house. I hurried inside and grabbed my good friend, my camera and stood outside waiting for them to return. Here is what I captured.

If you don’t take time to notice the small stuff, you won’t ever appreciate the big stuff………..T.S.
