I’m still in the race
but I am getting very behind
i’m missing some days and really
need to find them..
have you seen monday, tuesday and wednesday
and while you are at it, i need thursday too..
they seem to keep missing, as to disappear
outta the blue..
now I’m working on the pounds i gained, but it’s nothing new
i really do fear that they will want to stick around..
maybe i need to run faster and pick up my pace
and stop missing and losing
so i don’t get left behind standing on third base..
This morning, I thank the mystery person that left me a note to write, write, write! Thank you for that reminder!
So, it brings me to that place of thinking of all the reasons and excuses I have to not write. I think that what I have best to offer is to go with my original idea of writing from my heart. It is where all of me is stored up in files, life experiences, the failures, the successes, the doubts, the highs and lows, faith, fears and more. Observing these petals this morning made me think about how my life is falling into place after a major move, just over six months ago. I often have to combat fear of not having the potential. In my day-to-day existence I strive for low key…peaceful days. I really like simplicity, and therefore have been trying to not jump to quickly for finding things to keep me busy. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities that one can commit to in our area. I am careful to not overextend myself and being prayerful about this helps to keep me in order. The following is a little artsy endeavor I am working on. The last collage I did was in 2012. It was a first time experience for me. It was simple and fun. Kind of childlike but it brought something out in me, that maybe I actually missed out on during my childhood.
I am not finished..
I like this!

Each day, truly is a gift. It may not feel like it, or look like it, but there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel, if you wake up and and start your day on the sunny-side up.
