Just Maybe

just maybe, there was something i missed

as a child, caught between happy moments

and sometimes being scared

just maybe, i longed for someone

to take notice, and to interact with me

and not be so busy

maybe, the early years

 would have been different

just maybe..

Falling Into Place

DSCN6682This 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..

Life of Riley

2013-07-027

We have guesstimated that Riley was born in February. My husband discovered her early in the month of March. She has brought us a tremendous amount of joy and free entertainment and after two years, she is definitely a very important member of our family.

Cat Quotes

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.

Dogs come when they are called; cats take a message and get back to you later.

Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through the snow.

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one that suffered from insomnia.
