Summer is all about love and peace among each other. A very sweet lady, for sure. Please visit her at the link I provided.
In Summer’s words this is her introduction about herself.
The hands are there for friendship..
The heart is there for love..
There are no rules actually for this. But how could I not spread this to all I can. Place it on your page and feel the peace when you see it.
I just had to show you what I have accomplished! I could not keep the excitement inside of myself and had to share, so picked you, to share it with. I had entered a photography contest, and the photo that won, and is now published. It is this one, pictured of a tree trunk.
The other one, I received the certificate in the mail yesterday, stating that out of 5,000 people, I had won an honorable mention. I did not care if I did not win the big prize, I cared that I was noticed and they let me know.
The poem that won this nice certificate is this.
Dedicated To My Brother
One night as I was sleeping well
I heard a little tinker bell
I looked up at the darkness light
And there was oh so bright a light
I heard the voice say I need you now
It said do listen and then do vow
A man you know that is your brother
Has asked for help from none than other
He fears his life may be in doom
He is waiting for you in the other room
Give up what you think is important today
And help your brother to find his way
He will become dependent and weaker than you
He says he trust no other that only you will do
I tell you child this journey will be hard
Satan has thrown in the joker of all cards
You will achieve your own lessons this I know
For I have planted tests to see if you will grow
His end of life may come sooner than yours
Just love him today and tomorrow the chores
Show patience and kindness, this way you both win
And I will reward you and throw away your sins.
There is no one better to do this job
It will be like shelling the hard casings on an old corn cob
I have give you this because you said you love me so
I know you won’t fail me, now turn and go
For this is your talent that I have given to you
I know that you will always do the best you can do
And one day when it’s over, you will look back
And see that your brother had nothing to lack
He loves you, you know with all of his heart
He just has some issues with displaying this part
For I knew when I thought of you and him
That you would be the one who could get him to grin
There is nothing more special than two siblings who share
And I made sure when creation was thought, I’d make you a pair
Now go unto him he is calling your name
Help him to feel special and needed the same
Now open your eyes because this is no game
He is crying and lost and I hear him calling your name
It feels good to have a smile from my own person, as I travel down the path with my brother, battling Parkinson’s Disease.
What do you see that I do not? I have asked myself this questions at different times, but today, I have asked myself this again. I see a person who cares for her brother, who tends to find herself on here complaining or whining as some term it. I could never turn my brother into strangers care, when I know I would sit home and worry if he had his bath, or did he like his meals today. It isn’t so much the nursing care he would receive, it is that I am a natural worry wart. You should see my body! It is full of these little warts! LOL
I have been very blessed today in receiving awards from my friends. It draws me closer to this community, making me realize I am never truly alone, that I have many who care about Al and me. The emotional support and words I read, can never be expressed in words enough for the way I feel when I read them.
