good mornin’

I remembered to feed the dog today without a reminder from Nebraska.
Blue returned the favor by actually walkin’ on our early mornin’ walk today.
The moon was aloof and hidin’ but the stars were twinklin’ in a clouded black, still dark as night, sky.

heart ache

my woman’s heart is breakin’
daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend
life’s been tough for awhile now
doin’ the best I can
cryin’ too many tears
day by day abidin’
movin’ ever forward
walkin’ step by step
thankful for the gift
of each day
we have together
holdin’ it all together
with bailin’ twine and prayers

up and at ’em

I’m back inside after walkin’
‘round the block with Blue
under an inky black starlit sky
in the early mornin’ hours
the wind is blowin’ briskly
the temp has dropped past chilly
we didn’t care
dog stopped to sniff and do his biz
I kept good pace down the sidewalk rockin’ my dancin’ frog pajamas
barefoot in my cowgirl boots

letter of reflection

Dear Sad Girl,
Your eyes have lost their sparkle.
Must be those dark circles, detracting and subtracting the twinkle from your eyes, the windows to your creative soul.
Your face is set and sullen.
That grin that once was impish, now set in a line or hangin’ inside down.
Holy hell what a mess.
I know it’s hard now, in this moment, but we’ll get you through this.
Someday soon Faith, Hope and Love will heal the wounds within.
Keep on going.
Day by day abiding.
The loving arms of friends and family will catch you when you fall.
So try to find your smile.
Savor Joy in the quiet colors of the dawn.
Pep talks are FREE and plentiful.
Hugs are often the best medicine.
Love is the easy part.
Start by being gentle with yourself.
Love,
Me

double damn

turquoisetangle:

damn

double damn

this is not how I wanted today to start

with a headache threatening at my temples upon waking

and you throwing my words from yesterday back at me

yes I do need quiet time

so I can handle the noise and commotion

but I need you too

I thought the walls came down

in the storm of emotion

a few weeks ago

but they are going back up

because the wounds are deep

on both sides

no wonder my head hurts

damn

double damn

this sucks

I wrote this nearly a year ago.
Same sentiment still applies.
