A Day of Accounting ~

The unresolved but sleeping past 
and unknown future 
separate themselves by just today _
My age commends me 
to a quiet thinking pace.
What complications can be satisfied?
As little time as possible 
may be spent concerning things 
that cannot be helped, except
for words of sorrow for the sad.
A sparkling of confidence 
in working ones of good intent 
and listening to other's need
just to be heard.
What better way to start this 
opening of a bright and spicy 
day of spring? 
----------------------------------
(I am taking a little break from blogging
 as I have company coming in from out-of-town 
 for the next couple of weeks. 
 Take care friends, enjoy your days and be happy!)

  31. And now - we've finally reached summer, Margie! I'm trying got stay present, not worrying (too much) about what may or may not happen in the future. Finally getting green here in the mountains but nights remain cool, sometimes going to freezing. Hope your days are happy. Enjoy your family and your friends.

      Life can bring its challenges and those are the times we need to try our best to let go and just 'go with the flow'

      Very hot here this week and I wish I was in the mountains, I love the cool evenings you have there.

      I just answered all my comments and will be visiting you soon as well as all the other wonderful people that have visited me while I was away.

      I got very little sleep last night and when Handsome left for work at 7 am I finally fell off to sleep and then woke up at 10;30 am and took a shower and then took Jake on a walk .

      You are such a sweetie to mention that I am coming back.
      I am working on it... LOL
