Poem

My Love, My Cat by MwsR

I sit and ponder

I cry and the tears will dry

My heart is torn

My decision weighs heavy

You are such a joy

Such a sweet love

It’s effortless to love you

Tomorrow we will part

After 15 years of being together

In spirit we will abound

Forever connected

To reach that great beyond

I’m sad

My heart is breaking

My love makes me know

That I must let you go

But my eternal bond comforts me

Just a bit

I will forever remember us

Our love

Our connection

Our affection

May you always feel my love,

Know my heart,

And feel me near.

MwsR Thoughts

We all face different things in our lives.
Seldom do we stop and realize what others go through.
I have known friends that hurt each day, carry guilt, and are hurt. I know people who despite circumstances that were given to them, carry on every day.

It is never the journey ahead that hurts us… It is, however, our lack to properly prepare as we start that journey.
MwsR

Don’t forget others go through it, deal with it, and push past it… you can too.

Yes, it will hurt sometimes. Yes, it will change you some. Yes, it will most definitely impact those who are in it with you, in one way, shape, or form. This can most certainly be directly or indirectly.

But the good news is…
You can move through whatever journey is ahead… You can.

There is hope for today.💓

Poem ( In Acknowledgement of Earth Day)

Our Earth by MwsR

Years upon years

Day after day

Nothing stays

Somethings change

Some will break

Underneath it all forms an earthquake

Rushing streams

Slow rivers that roll

Mountainous valleys down below

Pristine waterfalls

Underneath it all lies hidden caves

Curious pilgrims

Lazy patrons

Enjoying life and all its glory

Energetic people exploring

Beneath the displayed hills we all can rise.

Lack of notice

Moments in haste

Falling trash that lies in all places

Fires that aren’t kept up

These things diminish it and us.

Not only do we hurt or help

We can disintegrate it all by ourselves

One time is all it sometimes takes

To mess up our world for future sake.

We should protect this wondrous place

Instilling values directed toward our children

Correcting wrongs that others have done

Putting rules and laws in place to ensure justice for our earth.

This is our one world, our one habitat, our gift.

We should treat it as such.

Tears That Remain

Despite the prying eyes of onlookers

Beneath the satin sheets of your resting place

All is broken, yet so strong.

Riding on your shoulders all the way to work

Some days the newness of the day is never felt.

All is hopeless, all is unchanged.

Staying with you when you are in pain

Breaking all the rules of closure with disdain.

All is broken, yet still so strong.

Tempting are the signals for you to lay down and quit.

Struggling mostly because of the purpose

Tears that remain.

They remain when all around you change

They are as much a part of you as your brain.

Sometimes, it’s just the tears that remain

Sticking around when there is great pain

When all else leaves you, it’s insane.

Reflections

As I sit at my desk, the one my lovely husband made for me, my thoughts go back in time and reflect on my life and its many journeys. Sometimes people miss out on their futures by living in the past. This is not what I am doing today, today I am remembering, reflecting if you will. How many times do you find yourself looking at something or hearing something that stirs in your mind, a memory or two? Well, as I sit here, surrounded by my faithful and loving cat, Poppy, and with a view of my birdfeeders that are outside, I am where I was before. I am talking about memories, about things that either directly or indirectly took some sort of residence in my thoughts. I have my cup of coffee sitting here, my cellphone, my books, my computers, and my personal touches with me. Still, something is drawing me into a stream. A stream of reflections and remembrances that fill my heart, fill my moments.

I should be writing more on my webpage, but as it goes, I am thinking of my loved ones, and of the God who loves me unconditionally. I have never in my life deserved the wondrous and powerful all-consuming love of God. He graciously gives it to me. Nothing I can ever do would warrant that type of commitment, dedication, and love. Nothing! He is a pivotal instrument in my own personal life. I am not the most faithful, nor the most religious, or dedicated, but somehow none of that ever changes his ways towards me. He constantly forgives me, when I ask. He constantly works behind the scenes in my life. Is that not wonderful?

My family is always in my thoughts, always. No matter what I do or where I go they are there with me, in my thoughts. I have loved, have lost, and have been shunned by some. I have repeatedly forgiven, loved, helped, and encouraged some. I have corrected, instructed, and explained a lot of times. I have three adult kids and four grandkids all under the age of 7. I believe if I was a good mother, grandmother, they would always be in my thoughts, don’t you?

Today as I sit here, reflecting on things, I realize there are people out in our world without hope. People who would rather not reflect on their loved ones, and sometimes on their lives. Not everyone we meet has a great life. Not everyone we meet has a story they refer to for their enjoyment. Some people find it hard to wake up in the morning. Some find no peace at home. A lot of people are just going through the motions of life. It is a lonely or cruel place for many.

There was a point in my life once upon a time, when I was always sad, always hurting, and always searching. I was not given a golden goose, a family home, or riches. I had to make and scrape for everything I had. I was like many out in this world who were hopeless and forgotten. I too have a story I do not wish to repeat. However, this story or two, has made me who I am today. To say I wished that my life had been different, well, that would almost be like regretting who I have become. Right?

No matter what we choose in our life, or where we are going, we have choices. Struggles and trials and hardships are part of our life on earth. I want to encourage you to find something that makes you smile. Something that can make you feel good inside and out, would be great to find for yourself. No one can do that for you. Only God. If you have never known such a relationship with him it is something worth trying. I am not preaching, nor am I qualified to. I just want to say, he has been my rock, my shield, my stay! He can be yours too!

If that is not where you are wanting to go, then immerse yourself in doing good for others, regardless. Find the good in all things, all people. Yes, I believe it is good in all. Sometimes bad rules but good is there, maybe just hiding, or suppressed by worry or pain.
