My Legacy

 

She’s growing up fast.
She’s making me proud.
She knows things I didn’t teach her.

I smile when she repeats
the lessons learned from me.

I cringe when someone else
infected her brain
with unsavory thoughts.

I teach her
to think for herself.

I remind her that
she should be loved
for more than her striking beauty.

I encourage her
to keep trying.

I love her amazing mind.

I pray that she will outgrow
her short-tempereredness
much sooner than I did.

I prepare her for the world
as best I can.

She’s my baby girl.

Darn good coffee cake



Me:
Yum this is good coffee cake!

My brain:
Well A, it’s 11pm, that’s enough eating for the night.

Me:
But one more piece won’t hurt!
It will be many hours before morning.
You know I can’t sleep when I’m hungry.

My brain:
Why do you choose to learn things the hard way?

Me:
What are you talking about?

My brain:
(silent)

5 minutess later…

Me:
Uggg, I ate too much!

My brain:
Yeah, THAT’S what I was talking about!

Me:
Why didn’t you warn me?

My brain:
Ms Dumb-dumb, I tried!

Tripping

 

Tripping over my feet today…
It’s as if my legs
can no longer carry me.

Standing all day,
it’s just what I do.
Always on the move,
busy like a bee.

Keeps me fit,
keeps me alert,
but I guess today
my limbs rebel
because as it seems,
I’m just tripping.

Road trip reflections 10:17pm

 

Alone with my thoughts
as the night lights flicker by.
I’ve traveled this road alone before,
but this time it’s different with her here.
I can’t relax, I’m on duty.
There’s no downtime.
I can’t really rest.

A full moon hangs in a starless sky.
It seems lonely without its companions
as I am without mine.
I miss him terribly!

I’m hoping this trip
brings some much needed closure.
The emotional and financial cost
is much too high
to drag this out indefinitely.

The busy streets
bring back mixed memories
of a life that was bittersweet.
I’ve accomplished a lot here
but now my new life
eagerly awaits my return.
I miss my new home.
I’m ready to move on.

Worth saving… 

 

Confused,
she attempted to let go
of a situation she couldn’t comprehend.

Uncertain,
she pondered the reason
for her presence in his life.

Frustrated,
she questioned if what they had
was worth saving.

Relieved,
he asked her to be patient,
to give him a little more time.

Surprised,
he held on tighter
than she thought he ever would.

Elated,
she was comforted to know
he cared enough to ask her to stay.

Random Act of kindness. June 27 2017

 

A tall, dark and handsome man,
before them stood with a smile and plan.

He whispered a few instructions to me,
to which only he and I were privy.

I followed his request quite elated,
knowing they’d be confused and excited.

He left and waved goodbye on cue,
the following customers had no clue.

Cards and coupons they presented,
but they were no longer needed.

The kind gentleman had paid their bill
leaving them surprised and thrilled.

What an amazing day to behold
an act of kindness, a story to be told.

It doesn’t hurt to pay it forward,
we are all God’s angels in this world.

Be kind, show love to all mankind,
It will all come back to you in the end.

Gazing at your eyes

 

Running my fingers
through your hair…

Tracing the outline
of your dimpled cheeks…

Gazing at your eyes
as they stare into mine…

Watching that seductive smile
grow across your lips…

Knowing you’re about to do
something rediculously amazing…

You get me every time…
