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.

Hey All!

Just wanted to touch base with you all. I made to Wisconsin yesterday evening. It was a long drive. I am grateful that I did not run into any issues. Now I am sitting and resting in my hotel room. It is nice to just do nothing.

I will not be posting a lot this week but I will be posting each day. I hope to just relax while my husband is at the Wisconsin office working. I like this area, it is much like back home for me. The terrain is not as mountainous as my homeplace but it does have some hills. The hotel we are at we have stayed many times before so that makes it comfortable.

I hope all are doing well and having a good day so far. Thanks for following, liking, and sharing. As always I love your comments so keep commenting.

Hi All!

I’ve been working hard on my garden and planted veggies. I am sorry that I have had very little time here lately, to dedicate to my usual multiple postings.

I hope to get back in the swing of things here shortly.

Doing a garden is a lot of work but I love it. Maybe you should try? You can plant in pots, or anything else you can think of.

Here are a few earlier pictures and present day pictures to share.

I am most happy helping create life and in keeping it going, be it flowers, kids, grandkids, garden, animals, etc.

Happy day to you all.

Hello All

I am hoping this post finds you all doing well and in good spirits. I have somethings I would like to write and share.

I am going to see changes on my webpage soon, October 8th is when it is looking like. I cannot afford to pay the business page any longer so I am downgrading to a more reasonable lower-cost one. I have been told that I need to wait until then though to downgrade. There is so much out there in the internet world I am learning. There is also a lot I do not understand.

I am hoping that the content I bring to you will still be of quality and strike an interest inside of you. I like to do various subjects and interests, hopefully, something is for you. I hope you all will bear with me as I get the kinks worked out with my newer downgrade page at the end of this week. I am hoping for very little change, but I may be in for a shock.

Since I have not earned any money for my webpage, I think that this is my only option, downgrading. I was told plugins might not work so we shall see.

Anyone who can, will you please share, like, comment, and follow me, This will give me a much-needed boost in the way of inspiration. I like posting to you all and love sharing things that may be of interest to you.

Thank you guys! and gals!

Hey all.

I am writing to you all to let you know, that my site may change starting in October. I will be stopping the business account. I am making this decision based solely on the cost it costs me to run this site. It is really a lot and seeing as I have not been paid a dime for running it, it only has cost me money. I will probably do the free WordPress. Of course, that will not come with all the “bells” and “whistles” that this business account does. It will lack many features and many options for me in terms of posting. I am okay with that.

Poetry is the reason I joined this site in the first place. I wanted to share some of my many feelings and let others know that they are not alone in this world of pain, uncertainty, and turmoil. I felt I had experienced many things that I could share.

I hope you will continue to follow, like, or comment. I am not saying goodbye, just saying that my purpose for this website will not change. I will continue to write my poems, and share my thoughts and feelings. Please know that I appreciate all those who have friended me, been kind to me, and supported me.
