Late Night Ponderings

As I lay her in our spare room bed with knee supported by pillow and waiting for pain meds to kick in.

I am also engrossed in the previous mentioned book – it is so hard to put down and yet such a sad story/memoir!!

But I will step aside from it to express myself and deliver some sips of gratitude.

1. Waking up to birds singing
2. Beautiful day despite humidity
3. Good books
4. New friends,fans and followers
5. My loving husband and my dog Shadow
6. Family and friends

And now I leave you with my favourite quote from one of my favourite plays

“Good-by, Good-by, world. Good-by, Grover’s Corners… Mama and Papa. Good-by to clocks ticking… and Mama’s sunflowers. And food and coffee. And new-ironed dresses and hot baths…and sleeping and waking up. Oh, earth, you’re too wonderful for anybody to realize you.”
― Thornton Wilder, Our Town

Returning To Faith


Had lost my way in turbulent times

Wondered if true inner peace would be mine

Felt truly alone and forsaken

Behind a false smile my heart was breaking

Lost my faith and myself on my darkest days

Wondered if surrendering really did pay

Empty inside as felt no hope

All life’s good times slipping away like an oiled rope

With solace and patience I now can see

That He never really abandoned me

A lesson of Humility I had to learn before

Now I can see to the end of the hall to an opened door

His grace and guidance I welcome back in my life

Hoping he will guide me through the pain and strife

Forgive me for I never meant to doubt

What your intentions were really about

I give to you, total control as I hand over the wheel

Your love and lessons are the one real deal

Hear me please Lord as I speak from my heart

In my life you will always have a part
