Sweet Gratitude

Sun rises, kissing my face
Lighting my view
Heart flutters
Soul embraced
Butterflies ensue
World seems brighter
Kindness prevalent
For this, I offer my gratitude


Years Go Bye

Another year
Another number
More memories
More adventures
Added value
Added perspective

Another lesson
Another loss
Less hate
Less pain

I’ve laughed hard
I’ve cried
I’ve questioned everything
I’ve wondered why
I’ve searched for peace
I’ve found clarity
I’ve given of myself
I’ve held the hand of someone that died
I’ve comforted a friend
I’ve listened
I’ve hurt
I’ve changed
I’ve grown
I’ve gained
I’ve been enough
I’ve felt
I’ve loved hard
I’ve let go of hate
I’ve tried my best
I’ve felt insane
I’ve found my path
I’ve lived for me
I’ve given my all
I’ve been loved eternally

So I say, happy birthday to me, thank you for the time, thank you for your part, if you don’t know it yet, I love you with all my heart

Spread your wings



Life is a flight






Choose Wisely



We all have a choice
Which will you choose to lead

Darkness and Moonlight

Under the glow of a brightly lit crimson moon she found herself lost
Lost in the magnificence
Lost in the glory of its stunning brightness
Lost in the simple beauty of nature’s nightlight
Lost in a world around her
Lost is the time that seemed to stand still
Lost in a memory
Lost in how it made her feel
Lost in the silence
Lost in the memories
She was coming undone
This time she would not run
The darkness she had always feared
Uncomfortable but a place she very well knows
That moment she made a choice
Forgiving those apologies that she never heard
Forgiving those that didn’t deserve it
Forgiving herself for harboring hate
Under the big crimson moon she found forgiveness
She released her demons and took back control
She released the horror of that pain
Her truth is now spoken
The words set free
Floating somewhere in the atmosphere and no longer confined in her mind



Today I am reminded how small I am in the big picture of life

As the rain starts falling
My eyes are drawn to small movements around me
The grass is coming alive with tiny creatures
Some come to rejoice in the water puddling on the sidewalk, seeking relief from the heat
Others scurrying to seek shelter under the lush canopy of the trees

I relate this to our life
How we, as humans, view and interact with each other
How we act and react to certain stimuli, like the rain

Are we rushing about ignoring the simple pleasures or are we reveling in the relief of the rainy days

Which of these sets the tone of our day

Kindness & compassion
Caring & supportive
Cold & callous
Silent & distant
Mean & vengeful

Even though we haven’t experienced the same life, we have the same emotions to deal with it
We are all in different places mentally & physically
But at the same time we are all the same

Just a person trying to find their place in this big ole world
Hoping to make some real genuine connections along the way
Writing out our thoughts for someone to hear us and whatever we have to say

Life isn’t always blissful
The rain saturates some days
The clouds eventually will part to make way for more sunshiny days
Remember to take root and grow in those moments
Appreciate the good days
And allow the storms to wash away the bad ones

When it seems like you are alone, just remember there are millions of us out here thinking the same

Be someone’s sunshine today


Complex Me

She is a product of her experiences and so many other things
Her beauty is the joy, humor & laughter she brings
She is smart, funny, and sometimes interesting
Her mood will determine which one you get to see
Her allure is a combination of so many things
She is thoughtful, kind & seductive
Her mystery can be found in her silence and all the unspoken things
She is simple & enjoys the little things
Her soul sees what you are hiding
She too also hides many things
Her attention is always focused on only a few things
She is healing from things that are broken
Her fragility is not something you will ever see
She is a leader and excels at many things
Her eyes show you the hunger, the want, the pain and everything it all brings
Her body language will tell you to come closer or step away
She is complex in every single way but so worth it

Do you know the impact they really have?

We get so busy with life and everyone uses words all day along, for their whole life.

Some spoken
Some written
Some typed
Some sang
Some screamed
Some drawn
Some painted
Some hung
Some framed


Just words or more?

Think about it

A simple “good morning” has the ability to brighten someone’s whole day

A “thank you” might be the one thing that encourages someone to keep going , when they feel like they have failed

A “thinking of you” could be the message that breaks weeks of silence for someone

A “are you ok” might be the one thing that opens a line of communication that a friend desperately needs

A “I hope you are doing well” could be the only encouraging words someone hears that day

A “I’m here for you” could safe a life

A “remember when” could produce a memory and laughter that replaces someones tears

A “congratulations” might be the response someone needed during their unspoken battles

A “I’m so happy for you” might produce the courage someone was having difficulty finding in themselves

A “I appreciate you” could have just lifted the spirit of someone suffering in silence

A “I love you” that isn’t done out of routine, but truly in the moment is the kind of thing that makes our heart sing

A “hi or hello” could be the only personal interaction someone has had in the years since their spouse passed away

I could go on forever but I’ll just say.

How are you
I appreciate you
I hope you are having a great day
I’m happy for you
Im here for you
And congratulations on your accomplishments today!

♥️ me
