Coffee’s good this mornin
I sit here and look out at the skies
that are filled with that
that the rains
are about to fall
as the birds are tellin me
that the wind
is ready to move aside for a
drenching that is bound to last all day long here.
HOPEFUL for sun!
has made a visit
its message of
hello and others singing their song
points to ponder
on a Friday
are moving into my head
with the changes of the
barometric pressure of the storms!
I am filled with such gratitude
for so many things
even through the last days of so much pain in and through life
with the new of 31 soldiers losing their lives defending our country overseas;
those soldiers recently who died in AZ as they were doing drills,
I thank them, their families
I honor their service.
I am grateful to so many who
volunteer across our country
for the many who are truly ill,
who are fighting
cancer and other devastating and life changing and altering illnesses.
I stand in such awe
of so many
who each day
to get up, regardless of their pain
get out there and make a difference
in the lives of others
in the knowledge
that if you do not give to others
you do not have anything
do you have that very
that makes each of us stronger
in our greatness to give to others.
I celebrate the beauty
in all those
“choose” to embrace
in all its beauty,
I realize it is indeed a choice
God/dess has given each of us
be involved in life
regardless of how others may “think” we should do something.
Many live their lives in a box, many will find courage to color outside the lines,
and some will throw the box away;
knowing we are all a part of a never ending circle
life is to be enjoyed
teachers are to teach,
when the student is ready
the teacher will appear!
on a day where it looks like the skies are ready to open up
the rains just wash away
all the dirt of the week
cleanse it all,
I am thankful
for all that ever has been,
all that is
all that is yet to come.
I wish you a day of beauty
A day that is yours
Make “great choices”
to “own” them.
Yes, we are still having to hear the press talk about Whitney Houston,
as much as we love the song
“I Will always Love YOU”
it is wearing now on my nerves.
The story line, the ugliness and the speculation
has long worn old, tired, and rather disgusting.
Whoever sold that picture now covering the tabloids has no conscious
no moral fiber
I am certain that it will fly off the shelves
as will the money fly from the pocket of the sick and twisted person who took the picture.
make no mistake,
there will be others who die of fame, of great stature,
soldiers whose families will weep as taps are played,
people who will die of prescription drug overdoses and families who will hold their heads in their hands with great shame and confusion not understanding how in the world this could happen.
AND survivors will emerge into the light
when they regain their balance
only when they “choose” to rejoin the marvlous dance of life
with support, guidance, and those qualified to truly assist
in ways that are helpful and those who are genuinely there to
stand by them along the journey
through the darkest hours.
The Centers for Disease Control
has reported that
15,000 people die annually from prescription drug overdoses.
Those are numbers and we need to make changes, interventions, education;
that should be talked about on the news
rather than repeated exposure
now what is known
a singer that the world knew and loved
and her darkest times
and Dr DRew and his speculations of those in the limelights or Nancy Grace and speculations
then end of a week,
a time to get your
a time for enjoying your friends, families, kiddies, 4 leggeds.
I don’t know about YOU
I’m ready for some good times,
ready for a little less of that thing called stress
and a lot more of that brilliance of
A time for restoring the brilliance of you,
a time to
LAUGH OUT LOUD;
for doing something real tender for you
so that you can do for others.
a time for choices
know that the choices YOU make
are always important and will often
make or break you and those you love…
When you look into the eyes
of one you love
look with honor
say and do!
It may be a great time
to get out there
see that new movie
that Tyler Perry has hitting the theaters
we all know
“I do love me some Tyler Perry”
whether as himself
And I have to tell ya,
just ask the Godsons,
I do a “mean Madea” myself!!! LOL
see into the soul!
it’s time for some good times
we all have to keep reaching for
are YOU ready?
Walk In Beauty
