Hello everybody, I hope you’re doing good. I am glad today’s Friday. I just wanted to touch base and wish everyone a happy weekend.And I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!🌈❤️
I have been a busy bee around here. Lots of stuff to keep me busy. I tend to my flowers, my garden, my pets, my grandkids, and my home/ family.
It isn’t too often get to just sit and relax. Sometimes, I really look forward to the actual sitting. My foot has been swelling here lately and I am trying to take it easy on it. Since being a diabetic and learning how important watching our feet and fingers, etc. , is I try extra when I have an issue with them.
I have also been SlOwLy working through editing my poems in order to make another book. This time, I hope to do a super job with spelling and grammar. It is harder than it looks. I have do many poems that I have wrote. I have printed out over hundreds butthatisnotsll of them. I use to post weekly on my personal Facebook. I would try to print them off but never seemed to catch them all. So there are more floating around somewhere.
I first published my poems on Poetry.com. That website closed and I lost some of my amateur poems. I did not have any saved. I wish had of. They were raw and full of improper poetry rythmn but they were true to heart. I have saw that that site sent done of it’s patrons work to another place. I should look into that.
Writing poems, for me, started off as a way of letting my hurt heart heal. I figured that once people started suggesting I write to be published, I thought, ” Why not!” I did not know they could impact people. The one’s who could identify with them because they meant something. That made me smile. I was in a none direct way, helping others.
I have 3 books and 1 kindle book. I wish they had been grammatically and otherwise accurate. They were not. I had a time during trying to publish them. My laptop crashed, my editor program did not catch mistakes, previewing them proved to be a challenge. I could not get it all to work. Still I published them. Some how I managed that. I hopemy next book is awesome. I really do.
I believe to heal one must find ways to let go of our emotions. Mine is definitely music and poetry. I feel more adequate with those expressions, so much more than in verbal expression. I sometimes get tongue-tied when speaking. I had always hated talking in front of a crowd. Singing in front of a crowd never bothered me. I knew my worth, in singing. In speaking I get intimidate a bunch. Poetry writing, well it is natural, like breathing, for me.
I just wanted to extend some more about myself, let my readers know me a little better.
I also want my readers to know I appreciate your faithful following and the many times you click ”Like”, and commenting.
Thanks guys! And I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!🌈
Hey everybody! Hope everyone is fairing well this Friday!
I am going to express a few random thoughts, not in any particular order.
I love waking to the bright beautiful sunshine. It makes the start of another day, somewhat special.
I am drinking coffee and sitting here scrolling WP reader and reading some posts from you guys.
I love a community that gives back to one another and I believe WP can do that and often times does.
I love the variety and I am hoping my webpage gives that to others. I try and hit things that reach a different genre of folks.
Tomorrow, I will attempt to do some outside gardening. I hope to put some “already growing “veggies in the ground. My seeds I started inside during March and this month, have long since been planted. Some were great and are doing fine, while others are not. I have something eating my peas and I am not a happy camper. I have hung dangly things and fencing and I am not sure what else to do. We shall see how it goes.
I live with my two grandkids and my daughter, their mother. To say life is boring is a far stretch from reality. I enjoy the precious time I have with them. Although they love to be mischievous and a handful at times. I think it keeps me young and keeps me going. This was not how I pictured my life, at the age, I am now, but I am glad that God saw fit for me to have this most precious time with them. Kids grow up way to fast and in 20 years or sooner, they can move onto their own life and sometimes you rarely see them. I am never going to regret the time spent with my own kids or my grandkids.
I am currently, and very slowly, working on another poetry book. I want to give insight and hope to others. My life was never easy and was not handed to me with bows and balloons, or gift wrapped even. I learned painfully and strategically how to do what I wanted and get to where I needed to be, to feel safe and loved and happy. Still, actually, I am working on it with each day. It is a thing that takes time and work.
Learning to trust has never been my forte’ but I am trying to let go of my insecurities and shortcomings. What we learn as a kid and how we are treated will pass into our adult life. We need to grab the reigns and hold on and make it go where we need it to go.
I am getting much older than I ever really thought about. So this time in my life is something I am trying to learn. It brings new challenges and new things. I hope to go through this life more gracefully and sure-footed.
Thank you to all who genuinely care for others. That is what I am sure, life is all about. So many of us are hurting and lonely and misguided. So many are treated cruelly and permanently messed up because of the people that were or are in their life. We all can try to reach out a hand to others and try to love with kindness and concern. Love like that is a genuine love.
I have so much more to share or say, but I will save that for another time. Thank you all for reading, for following, for your comments and your appreciation.
I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!
Hope everyone has a good Easter. Spend time with family and friends.
I know not everyone celebrates it . That is a personal choice and that is your right.
Peace to you all.
See ya on this side of the rainbow!
Hope everyone is doing great, on this day February 8, 2019.
It is a nice mild weathered day here, with a slight breeze blowing. I was contemplating something recently. It has to do with a call for my readers or followers. I was wondering how a post or several posts dedicated to someone or otherwise. My thoughts on this post or posts would be to have you, my readers, followers, and such to send me love poems or love letters, perhaps, maybe something along those lines , dealing with love, for me to showcase on my page. I am hoping you will help me out with this. I would like to call the post title, “LOVE”, appropriately entitled.
I will be using this picture for the corresponding posts.
Again, I would like participation from my friends and fellow writers, and followers, I would ask that you send me the stuff you wish me to post, by emailing me at http://Mwsrwritings@gmail.com// Please get those to me by February 12th.
Please help me out. I shall see you on this side of the rainbow.
Thank you! MwsR <3
Being a caregiver is great, but not when you let it take over your free time or when you put yourself on the back burner.
Sometimes we must take care of ourselves first, so we can take care of others without ourselves falling apart.
It is okay to say, “No”, or “That is enough.”
