giving grace

Wednesday, June 30th 2010

i am thankful
for the beauty
in my day
the scent of
the honeysuckle
the buzz
of the bee

i am grateful
for the smile
on my face
the bliss
of my sleep
the company
i keep

i am joyful
for the set
of my mind
the strength
of my determination
the faith
of my soul

i am humbled
by the power
of my will
the journey
of my path

of my future
the night
at the end of my day

i am guided
by my believe
in goodness
the touch

there's a pep in my step, again

Monday, June 28th 2010

it's been gone for so long

i've forgotten
what it feels like
to have energy,
real energy
the desire
to get up and out
and do things
without worrying
how tired
i will feel

i've forgotten
what healthy meals

I applaud all your successes :clap: and appreciate the motivating posts....

Rainy Nights in the ER

Wednesday, June 23rd 2010

What a night. My dad took a fall and wound up flat on his face.:o:o I called 911 because I didn't want to take a chance driving him. He was bleeding a lot and it was raining too.

one thousand pieces of me

Tuesday, June 22nd 2010

trying to be
everything
for everyone
does not help make
a healthy me

my parents home
my childhood home
destroyed by fire
altering the course
of grace and ralph
and dad
forcing choices
to be made
when we weren't ready
to make them
and the stress
oh the stress
decisions, questions
sadness
all at once
pushing the laughter
pushing grace
to the back burner
way too long

the closing on the house
maybe this week
the garage is empty
finally aft...
