Wishing

violet 10.17

Wishing I could reach out and comfort you,

I saw your tears begin to flow

you tried hard to be composed

but the sadness in your heart, needed to let go

You looked out with eyes, that brimmed with pain

your tender heart was bruised and weary

so many senseless deaths, how much more

could you be expected to endure.

Life is not always easy, rainbows appear only after the rain

it isn’t always easy to understand

why there are times., when God calls home the chosen ones

and how it happens, isn’t always  or easy to comprehend

each flower has its time in the sun, then it fades away

and is gone, life simply flows along,

I reached out to wipe your tears

of course you were miles away, yet I know you felt the love

of all who shared your pain that day.

Everything we say and do, is for  reason

sometimes we know right away, and other times

the light bulb comes on when we least expect it to.

Know that always,  LOVE will be there for you

journals are merely earthly tools to help us

mirror what is in our hearts

I send this wish out to you tonight

may the blessings of the moon and stars

bring sweet dreams to you this night

so that tomorrow, all will be sunny and bright.

Q

a prayer for you my friend.

sky high – Monday

festival winds bondi beach 9.17

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

look at me – flying so high

I am in the sky

riding the free-flowing breeze

oh… to never touch ground

yikes, if I do, will I be found

go away negative thought

God pilots my path

and in God’s grace/love

I have faith and know

wherever I go

it will be where I am bound

Bright, colourful, a visual delight

I am wishing with all my might

that this week

will be an endless maze

of happy days

whether  skies be blue or gray

I earnestly pray

each and every one of you

will find that God’s grace will visit you

and you will be rewarded

with the best life has to offer you

for dreams and wishes

to come true

we need only believe

love belongs to me and you

tired takes on new meaning

dragon soft

This was a picture a did a while back.  I titled it, Dragon Soft, you’ve  seen it before shortly after I painted it.  As sometimes happens, I paint something put it away, and don’t look at it again, till doing something else I come across it.

Today we are moving into several weeks into the journey of our cancer voyage.  Each day is a new day, nd every day, I am blessed with the kind words, and messages of friends who remind me that they are holding us in their prayers and sending healing vibes our way.

It is an amazing feeling to know that there is such caring and thoughtfulness surrounding us.  I appreciate it especially when out of the blue, I am struck down with an over-whelming feeling of “tired”.  It is like nothing I’ve ever known, and I really can’t describe it.  Everything just seems to grind to a halt.. and I NEED.. to sit down, close my eyes, and just wait for the moment to pass.

When my husband is out, I find I’m waiting for him to come home, just so I know he is safe.  I know that over the course of the next weeks, even months.. I will be inconsistent with my blog.  I beg your patience.  I am eternally grateful for your continued friendships and support.

whippet love

velcro 8.26.17

Usually Velcro will nestle down into his blankets for his night-time sleep.  This is our boy now that he wants to make sure his “Mom” is OK.   He positions himself where he can make sure I’m alright, and if I move or get up.. he’s watching and listening.  We both miss our Canaille.

Keeper c 8.23.17This beautiful gal is one of the whippets we visited the other day.   Look how amazing her colouring is.  Her top coat a soft fawn, with a delightful pattern of dots showing through.  There is something very  humbling about how a dog will engage in an interaction with  a human.  She is standing here with her trainer, happy to share the limelight with him.  Unconditional love.

It wasn’t till we adopted Velcro that we discovered the world of whippets and sight hounds.

When we open our hearts and lives to new possibilities, it is always amazing to discover that there is love all around.

My husband and I thank each and every one of you, your prayers, and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.  He has begun seeing the medical team that will be working with him over the next weeks and months.  Keep those prayers and healing energies coming this way. =^_^=  There is love in prayer, Oyashikiri… God is love….

When cancer calls

nature bells corners SAWe’ve had some time now to think about and mull over the “visitor” we have in our home.  We didn’t go looking for our house guest, but then I don’t think that many people go in search of inviting cancer into their lives.

I personally have had to think about how I am reacting to (relating) to this visitor.  It is not a welcome guest, but… it is here, and we have to deal with it best we can.  I like to drive down country roads, when I want to think and talk to my “self”  Ottawa is a good place to be, since in almost any direction I go, I can be in country spaces surrounded by green space and untamed vegetation.

nature bells corners SA1There is a hodge podge of this and that.  nothing is planned, it just happens.  A patch of flowers, different shapes, sizes and colours of greens all come together to allow for crickets and critters of various shapes and species to mingle and cross paths.

nature bells corners SA2I’ve decided that cancer just didn’t happen, it found its way in, and was allowed to settle in grow and fester.  Ownership has to be taken for this.  Only in accepting this fact, can we move on and make friends with it.  Find out what it will take for it to go away, and then work faithfully, and with dedicated purpose to ease it out of our lives.

nature bells corners SA3Look carefully, there is a path.  It is hidden if you just glance, but if you take your time and look … you will find a way, a path to follow.  Life is always open to change.  Prayer and faith are the most direct path in our connection/relationship to/with God/Universe.  I believe that whatever the outcome, it will be what is best.

nature bells corners SA4Cancer is a world changer, we are blessed that we found out in time, that it had come into our lives.  Knowing, means that now we can work with the specialists and take the necessary steps to improve our lives, and work positively towards a healthier outlook and lifestyle.

Nature is not stubborn, it is resilient.  Acceptance and grasping the opportunity for change positively, will help us flow with the seasons.

Chop Suey Tuesday

oct-26_011

With the goings on in the world today, I’m never sure what will greet me when I first listen to the news after a lovely night of sleep.

I first wrote this little poem back in the fall of 2007, I made a few changes, to share it with you now…. have fun, let your imagination flow.

How eerie the night

when everyone looks for a fright

carved pumpkin heads

leer with evil delight

their eyes bleary and red

their lopsided grin

sends a chill from within

children cheer with delight

when ghosts go bump in the night

So tuck yourself in

don’t let the news of the day,

scare your good sense away.

Once upon a time, October came once a year

Now it seems, every day is one the speaks of fear.

Really, let’s think on this, do we want to live this way

I pray each day, that our friendships

will flow and grow

till each and every one of us

in reaching out, will overtake

the negativity spread by “others”

and put pumpkins back on the table

 in tasty pies that we will gladly share

with everyone, for they will be filled with

 thanksgiving, love. friendship and appreciation,

stock ingredients of  our every day.

Blessings.

 

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God.
