After The Day ~

Some are returning to mansions 
Royal with purple and plate 
Priceless treasures of artistry 
Adorning their halls of state.

I do not envy their riches 

I have mansions too 
I am returning to halls of Love 
Adorned with the grace of you!
(Thanks dear husband for always being 
there for me 
This poem is for you!) 

(And thank you all kind people 
that visited my last post 
and left the kind words
your kindness means so much to me!) 

(My hubby and I are heading to Nova Scotia 
tomorrow on early Wed morning to visit my family 
we will spend most of the time with my dear sister Terri 
who has ALS 
we will be gone for 2 weeks
please keep me in your good thoughts 
as I so need strength as I want to be strong for Terri
thank you!
I am sorry I have not been around to visit but 
I am just not in a very good place these days!) 

Bless you all

Brief Journey ~

We are but leaves before the storm, wind-tossed _
Unknowing, whence we came or where we go 
So short our journey that its brevity _
Makes more intense the fleeting joy we know.

As we ride on, the vast plain seems to shrink _
A year is shortened and a day so brief 
We look to spring to see its blossoming _
Too quickly crowded out by autumn leaf.

Youth slips away before we are aware _
The trick of time confusing bud and rose  
So brief a journey and so dear this life _
I catch it to my breast and hold it close!

Hello to all of you, who might read this new blog posting.
I hope all is well in your lives!
I know it's been a while since I last posted 
and I have not been around to visit any of you wonderful 
There is a reason for that!

I am facing a crisis in my life as my dearest baby sister 
was diagnosed with the cruelest of diseases, she has AlS :( 
My heart is broken in two!
My heart is just not into blogging at this time!

My hubby and I will be going up to Nova Scotia towards 
the end of August to see my sister and her family.
We will stay two weeks.
It's so hard to be living so far away 
from my sister now as she tries to deal with this 
devastating news!
I have shed so many tears since the day I heard from her 
that she has ALS!

Please say some prayers for Terri that she finds 
the courage and strength to go on and do 
the best she can each day!
Thank you!

I love my dear sister so much and 
facing the fact that I will be losing her 
is almost too much to bear!

My sister has touched my heart in ways 
no other ever has!
We have shared our hopes and dreams and also fears and have
a deep love for one another!
I have been truly blessed to have my loving 
and dear sister share this journey of life with me!

Blessings to all of you!
Take care!

Love from

Song of a Quiet Life ~

If I can find a loveliness
   in diamonds in the snow
If I can hear a symphony 
   wherever tree-tops blow 
And if I'm dressed in cloth of gold 
   while standing in the sun
Should that not be quite wealth enough 
   for me, or anyone?

If I can find a palace here 

   within my rooms 
If warm spice cake and apple pie
   are rarest of perfumes 
And best of all my husband is 
   a prince in blue jeans 
Am I a fool to be content 
   with simple things like these?

(Tomorrow, my hubby, Jake and I are heading to Texas 

 for a grand adventure in our motor home and will be gone 
 for about a month , so, see you later. )
