“Nothing, but love” For Buddy. Today we walked Josh to the bus stop. Later He made me laugh….so hard I cried. Another message from Above: Our pets are here to give us unconditional love, and free kisses, join us on our long walks, listen to us when we pour out our hearts, they calm the chaos in our minds…by just being there in that very moment. Today, I was given a reminder of just that.
A TRUE FACT:
A MOTHER’S work is never done.
just when you finally sit back to relax
another “fire” needs to be extinguished.
On this beautiful Mother’s Day……
These are a few words, I have to say:
Today, I will not: curse, cringe, or yell…..
I will RELAX, BREATHE, and sit down for a spell.
No fussing, complaining or nagging-
not for a while.
Well on this day for “MOTHERS”
it’s just time for me!
Just the things that I enjoy…..
taking photos, gardening, and writing
hanging out with my kids.
No lists, no errands, no WORRIES, no messes.
Just time to enjoy God’s blessings;
OUR life, our home, sweet memories
My hubby, and our kids, and our FAMILY.
I will be HAPPY, be grateful….BE satisfied!
with just: being ME….. a woman, a friend
a wife, and the best MOM that I can be!
A MOTHER’S DAY WARNING:
Today is not just about: the candy, flowers or gifts
remember to cherish life,to love and be loved.
Meander down life’s paths with joy, and a CAUSE.
no matter how the tides of life overflows, and drifts
BE STRONG, BE FAITHFUL, BE HAPPY!
Rise renewed, and refreshed after each and every fall.
My wish for all of you is simple:
BE CONTENT WITH YOU!
Keep on, keeping on my sisters, and friends,
My wine glass is proudly held up for all of you!
Very special women, awesome wives, and MOTHERS!
Have a Wonderful Mother’s Day!

Just when you think that time is slipping by…. there is a glimpse of hope when all things work out for the best. Despite the heat, and other minor mishaps- “all is well” in our world. I had a great time reconnecting with some friends in California. It was like being a teenager …laughing, and talking all night. I am grateful that We were able to spend some time just hanging out with friends who we miss dearly.
Now that vacation is over, I have to catch-up on yard work, weeding, housework, etc…. TIME DOES FLY, and too bad for us we cannot rewind, freeze, skip or start over…..
- walks in the park
- being creative
peace and quiet, AND TIME FOR MYSELF, seems like things of a distant dream. I hope to make a change and find some extra time for doing things that I love. I hope to work on my photos, make a few greeting cards, find time to exercise, and also in the process maybe I can lose some weight, and fix my finances. WISH ME LUCK!
I wrote a poem today. I guess I hav e to find small time frames to write, relax, and even have some peace and quiet. Oh yeah, I forgot I am also taking an online class- trying to complete my bachelor’s degree.
Beauty, Youth, Wealth?
Time does not stand still.
We live, and grow,
and strive for change.
STILL, TIMES TICKS BY
Some things we hide, and others.
Secrets, wrinkles, health.
We can’t wait to show
the price, what you paid.
What’s your cost range?
AND,TIME MOVES ON!
Stronger, Older, Wiser!
Even good looks fade,
great minds languish
roses wither, seasons change.
TIME………KEEPS MOVING ON.Now, that you know,
LOOK HOW FAST, THEY HAVE GROWN, AND CHANGED.
YouTube – Otis Redding- (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay
do you remember this song? I am working on a website for the 2010 Lynch Family reunion. This song takes me back to summer at Grandma Lynch’s house. Memories of flipflops, chasing the ice cream truck, and hot MS weather, and oh yeah who can forget the MOSQUITOS…
Well, so time has gone by so fast! I have been on vacation for almost 1 week. Achievements to date: gardening- planted and replanted the front flowerbed,transplanted some Hostas in the side-shade garden.
HOUSEWORK: a little…. SIGH
HARDWORK: Trying to get the floors replaced in the kitchen/mudroom- headache, and issues along the way: lost my motivation for a split second. Hubby was helpful! He helps keep things in perspective.
I wanted to have a yard sale, or downsize the closets. What an endeavor. I am calling myself “brave” . I’d rather spend time in the garden, or take photos. I only have 8 days left on my stay-cation. Hope to make it to the Japanese gardens, or some other garden center. Wish me luck!
Taking lots of photos: Need to exercise more, wanted to go on more walks- they are free. Besides the dogs need to go on more walks. Hope to get up early and walk around Lake Normandale.
Time really goes fast, it seems just like yesterday that my daughter was 5 years old. Now she is 16 and taking Driver’s Ed. Pray for me to have patience, when teaching her to drive. Any pointers. Please leave a comment.
LIFE IS SHORT! LIVE to the fullest.
Time to go now, maybe I just need to slow down, and take a nap or something… The challenge is knowing when to take it easy.
