Life thoughts~

Hey out there on the world wide web! Hope everyone is doing okay and feeling good, or at least trying their darn level best.

I thought I would write some about things that I have had on my mind. Everyone else seems to do that, so I said, “Why not?”


I am loving the days of sunshine around where I live. It is great to see and helps a person feel much better than a dreary rainy day. I have been preparing my garden area lately. I already have seedlings that have started sprouting. I am not sure if the chance of frost is a definitely thing of the past though. I have read where we, in my case, are going to see chilly weather, hopefully not freezing temperatures.

I really like getting my hands in the dirt and working the ground. It is something I contribute to my grandmother, whom I watch growing up as a kid. She could get anything to grow and much like her, so can I. I love the beautiful flowers as well as the vegetation and find that I am in my element when I am out in the dirt or planting something. I do not see much of an interest in two of my three kids but hopefully the one that seems interested, will find herself a lot like me in that department.

When a person finds something they are good at, they should delight in it and do that something with all the love and effort they have. I see our world so baffled with much of our stresses, instead of enjoying the things we really have reason to enjoy. Sure we are going to have rotten days and painful days and days when we wish to give up but mostly we have so many gifts we cannot see them for all those other things we are letting hold us down. I am guilty of this as well as the next person. Sometimes I think to myself how am I going to enjoy life again, and without warning it sneaks up on me and I find comfort in things again. That is not to say that I do not carry stress or burdens but I try not to let those dominate my whole life.

I know easier said than done sometimes. It really can happen though, give it a chance.


One thing a person must remember is that there is lots in life one can always find the thing that brings them comfort and joy, just might take some time.

I cannot wait to taste all the things I am going to plant this year. I hope to have enough to sustain my family once again, at least in vegetables.

So I think that is what I had mostly on my mind. Hope everyone enjoys this week. Thanks again for commenting, following, sharing my webpage and blog and I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!

Peace and love,

Michelle, aka MwsR

Turning the big 50!

Well, let’s see… I hope everyone is fairing well. I am trying. It has been raining here so much, I have actually thought of buying a boat, haha.

Rain is alright but not loads of it. I am writing because believe me or not I am turning 50 this coming Saturday. I am not in any way a fan of turning 50 nor do I like the fact I feel 30 but am actually going to be 50. I look young, think young, and feel for the most part, young.

See the source image

Not to say that I have not had three kids, now have three grandkids, and have been married for 24 years. With that kind of thing comes comfort, familiarity and “use to its”. I like the fact that I am young looking, helps my ego a lot. The one thing I do not like is having diabetes and having things that pertain to years of having it. Diabetes can certainly age a person.

I like the same things, but my eating habits have greatly changed from my younger years, for sure. I like the same people and some have been in my life since I started school. That is a long time to know and keep in touch with a person. I have lived over half of my life with the same person, my husband and I would not know what to do without him. Those kinds of things make getting older, sweet and comforting.

See the source image

Now if I was to name things I do not care for about aging it would be first and foremost, pain. Things that keep you awake in the middle of the night and those things that limit your abilities, those are the top of the list. I hate seeing those “told you so’s” hit me in the head. I do not like the fact I see my loved ones and friends die. I don’t care for tooth issues that present themselves out of the clear blue, as if to tell me my teeth are old too.

I wish sometimes I could run like the child, I use to be, and how they did many moons ago. I have not yet got to live out all my wishes and dreams. I long for the simple days of my life but cannot seem to find that peace. I do not mind wrinkles, nor do I mind the fact that I am most definitely in the “ma’am” category and not the “young lady” one. I don’t like the rude younger generation that seems to think the world owes them something. The world does not owe anyone anything, young or old.

Image result for love live quotes

In getting older I see things that this coming up generation never will. I will be able to tell my grandkids things they have yet to know from books or encyclopedias. I will be referred to as, “the one who knows” and I will be the considered smart for the simplest of tasks because this generation has technology in their pockets more than the fortitude to discover things “hands-on”.

I loved being wild and carefree. I never thought of myself as I am today, back in those younger years. I could not of foretold all I know and have learnt. I simply did not ever give thought to growing this age. Seems now, all I give thought to is mostly this age, peppered with memories of how things used to be.

If I could offer words of wisdom to the readers of this, out there, in this world, I might tell you to never stop believing. Never let your mind and heart grow tired of trying. Lift someone else up and hold them till they can do things on their own. Spend time with those less fortunate and try to put yourself in their place and understand why things are how they are for them. Say your prayers of thanksgiving and gratitude to those who have helped you ad brought you along beside them. Please, NEVER stop dreaming of a better life, a better world or situation. It can happen.

Image result for quotes about never stop dreaming

Things do not happen in a day, they happen when we work for them. Things do not just follow us till we realize it, we need to search for ourselves. We need to love, accept love, and graciously express it. We need to make this world, our people, and all that is in between a better place. We are not alone here. If in getting older you can be a better person, give more, be more, and achieve the impossible, you and each person you have influenced will continue. A small piece, a large piece, it does not matter, those pieces multiply.

I may be turning 50, but my mind is still good. My eyes still see, and I still feel things like for the first time. I have much to give, little I need, and advice that I need to share.

Thanks for reading! I shall see you on this side of the RAINBOW!

Hello all.

Hope You are all doing okay today and everyday thus far.

I am writing you all today just to let you know some things I have had on my mind lately. Thank you to all those who continue to connect and follow and comment on my webpage. I appreciate it so very much. It is a great honor to have people who genuinely appreciate your words and content.


I just want to say that I have been adding to my “Blue” series of stories. These stories are about a girl who has not had the best of lives but continues to keep moving forward, despite her upbringing and her obstacles. Blue is naive in a lot of ways, but she is hoping that the trust she puts into someone will one day be reciprocated and keep her happy. Trust is something that for Blue she finds most difficult to give to someone. She loves despite being hurt and wants to find her safe place one day. She witnesses lots of abusive things growing up and feels the impact from them heavily and wholeheartedly.

Please check them out if you get a chance.

I also want to say that I am trying to offer the readers something I myself am always interested in and that is my DID YOU KNOW, things I post weekly. I find that there are so many fascinating things for us all to learn. Here is your chance. Follow along weekly in case you miss something.

I am not sure what 2019 will bring for me and this page but I hope to gain more followers, make more writer friends and maybe publish another book soon. With that though comes certain difficulties and it will take time.

Please send me a comment or something you might would wish to see on my webpage and I will take it into consideration. I am always interested in what others find interesting.

I shall see you on this side of the rainbow and hope you all feel loved and blessed.

Happy New Year/Page news

I hope this year has been good to you all. If not, maybe the coming year will be.

I for one, do not know where all the time has gone. I look forward to having another year, good Lord willing, and I hope it will be a good one.

This past year, I have lost loved ones. I have also made new friends, and came up with this webpage, blog, as well as having embarked on a few things with it, I never actually saw myself doing, honestly. It has been an interesting ride. I have found a new way of reaching others with it and hopefully helping a few that follow it, along the way.

Time is so short, people. It comes and leaves us when we least expect it. It not a favor of persons, and shows no lieutenancy.

I really miss times past in a lot of ways. I am also glad some of my past remains in the past, as I am sure others are felling the same. This coming year we can change things, make things right that seem to be wrong. We can move forward in great anticipation of things enlightening us and providing us with much excitement. Somme of us are feeling lost, feeling down and out, but they just have to have enough faith in things not seen yet.

If you have loved ones in your life you need to connect with, again, do so. If you have done wrong to someone, try to make it right. You are given this one life, with which to do and say anything you need to or want to. Do not waste your time here on earth. We were not created to be sad and lonely and depressed. We each were given the power to make a difference, be it small or large. We each have an innate possibility to reach others. To be more than we currently are, is a gift, use it. Take advantage of it.

I just want to encourage you to use this coming year to benefit your life or another’s. Please do not let it get away from you.

Happy New Year, it can be, if only we believe!

I shall see you at this side of the rainbow.

Michelle, MwsR<3 Blessings!

  • If you will remember my half-sister in your prayers. She is facing the end of her life, and she is not faring well at all. She is younger than me and we never grew up together, but she is in my heart none the less.
  • Please remember my nephew, her son, he is faced with the difficult task of being her caregiver through it all.
  • It is never too late people. Reach out to others, you will be a better person for it.

Hey guys!!!

For those that celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas!

For those that do not, Have a Merry Day anyway!

I just wanted to announce this is my 203 day of daily posting. Yay me!

Also I am glad to see more followers, and I hope more will come. Thanks for all those who comment, follow, and share my posts. I really appreciate it.

Although I do not necessarily follow any pattern I do like to keep all of my different interests posting. I work hard to find interesting and helpful things to share with you all.

I  am busy trying to get things together for our gift giving and celebrations at my house and my brother in laws. We go to his house on Christmas Eve and of course we are my house on Christmas Day. It is fun and taxing all in the same accord.Seems like we all prepare for about 20 minutes of unwrapping gifts. The time it takes to buy, wrap and share, goodness!


I hope everyone has love and comfort, healing and transitioning, wellness and support.

I shall see you on this side of the rainbow, again!

Hello, y’ll



I hope everyone is doing okay today, thus far!

I was without power for over 12 hours this past Sunday, and without WiFi until an hour ago. It has been a real eye opener.

I have two toddlers in my household and four adults, it was interesting coming up with things to do for everyone. I had over 15 inches of snow here.  It started Saturday at midnight. I live in the foothills and it was a big event getting that much snow. Thankfully no ice. But as everyone knows, when it starts to melt , if temperatures fall below freezing it will  re freeze making icy roads. So we were pretty much trapped for a while.

I did not get to post anything, if I had not scheduled something previously, I would have had nothing to post. I had no WiFi so checking messages was far and few in between.

I just wanted to explain to those of you who were curious where I had been.


I am trying to catch up on things, so sorry for a delayed response to the messages, comments, etc.

So see you guys on this side of the RAINBOW!

I am on my 181 th day of continuous posting.

While this isn’t nor wasn’t a goal of mine, I am happy I actually have that much to post. Ha ha.

I have seen an increase in followers and for each of those, I hope they have found something positive, raw, helpful, and truthful on my webpage. I really would like to know I have helped at least one of them. Thank you if you are a follower or subscriber!!!! You make writing so much more special, for me.

I just wanted to add,

—-my Word of the Day has turned to Word of the Week, this is in part because I post so much daily, I figured I would lay of off daily words.

  • I have made some  changes but not too many.
  • I still love writing my own words, in poetry, and to be honest I have been fighting the urge to make a song from my poems , you know add music to them. I play the piano, and long ago, I wrote my own music with my own words. It was great.
  • I am getting Christmas ready for my three kids and grandkids, it is always a “hustle and bustle” time but it is great seeing the look on their faces.
  • I like the LAUGH a Little, I added to my page. What do you guys think of it? I believe laughter is good medicine, and needed in our lives with all the things that weigh us down.

I am so happy to say, I have made some awesome writer friends who support each other and they have become a part of my daily inspiration.

On occasion my poems may feel dark or down, do not be alarmed. It is a part of why I write. I would like others to know there is hope out there,, and you are not alone. I do not suffer any mental condition, like depression or like wise but I do know pain, fear, and emotions. I want to share those with others so they never feel alone and know they are normal in doing so.

I write a lot from my past, not so much my present. Being adopted changed me, and it brought out so many emotions and things that weighed down my heart and mind. Now as an adult with my own family, I learning more about how love and life is and I am so blessed to feel anything but that childhood pain. Yes on occasion I get down and out, and I do not allow myself to let it alter my present or my future. Like a student, I am learning more and more and hopefully one day I will sit back and say, “ah, that is what that was”.

Until then I will write with my all nd fell all those feelings as they come to me. I will not stop loving, stop listening, stop trying to better another person’s life. I will make the most of this life God has given me.

Hello Everybody!

I am hoping everyone is faring well. I have been busy doing the usual things like…

Taking care of my cats, my two dogs and my grandkids as well as my kids and husband. I really would not trade those things for anything else, because that is all my life and the things I love the most.

I hope that everybody is enjoying my webpage still. It seems I am getting more and more onlookers. I have had some come from the internet search , which makes me happy. If you have never tried looking yourself up, you should try it. It is amazing where you show up and what information s being shown about you. Kind of scary though, as well. You never know what kind of crazy people are looking in on you!


I am trying to post daily, seems my three-month preparation has passed now and I am having to write ahead for months to come. That way I never miss posting. It is important, I think, to keep people engaged as well. Comment and message and like people’s writings. It can make all the difference to a person struggling to find a place within this and other communities. I have noticed that not many comment anymore, as they use to on my things. I guess that is just the nature of things. Cannot please everyone and I am not going to beg for anyone to do it. No one should ever have to pry a compliment or comment from this world audience. Just like everything else we do in this world, it is not always going to be noticed or appreciated, or welcomed by all who see. That is totally okay.

I appreciate those who acknowledge my award, RAKA, and participate. Those who do not acknowledge it, is there a reason for this? I think I make sure to tag people I have nominated and I think this award is fairly simply to participate in. If you know of anything or have a reason for as to why people I nominate do not respond, please let me know. You can email those comments to me.  Thanks ahead for any who do.



I just want to wish everyone a good rest of the week and so forth. I hope those who continue to support me, and encourage me, and comment and follow, know how deeply grateful I am for that.

thank you text on black and brown board

I hope to see and hear from you on THIS SIDE OF THE RAINBOW…
