Reblogging an interesting challenge!

What can YOU create?

“Her light extinguished, she felt darkness.”

❤️🙃💕

My time!

When acquaintances

Stop you on the street

To ask, How you’re doing?

Breathe, smile

Let it be.

When you show up

To surprise someone

And it’s you

Who gets the surprise!

Breathe, smile

Let it be.

When you realize

It was a possibility

And now it’s not.

Breathe, smile

Let it be.

☀️

No more worrying

About that we.

Breathe, smile,

Feeling my inner

Sunshine Returning.

Remembering who I am!

Reveling in that awesome

Freedom of me!

I’m breathing

I’m smiling

The world is mine

For the taking!

As I turn and walk away,

I breathe,

Hug myself and smile.

Time, to let it be.

Kind Regards

Reblog button please!

Good morning!

I’ve read some excellent

Posts this morning,

A couple I truly wanted to

Share.

Pay forward the positivity,

Creativity, and inspiration.

Alas, no reblog button.

😢

When that happens

I don’t know if the Blog owner:

1) Doesn’t want to be reblogged. (I respect this)

2) They forgot.

3) Or?

Here’s a tip!

If you want your post to speak for itself!

And keep on moving forward!

Please, don’t forget

to have your REBLOG

button up and ready!

Kind Regards and

Happy Hump Day – K

🌷🌷❤️❤️🌷🌷

Another Get to Day

A “GET To” day!

Today

I get to enjoy the sun!

I get to sing a song!

I get to wash the dishes!

Not that that’s

One of my favorite wishes!

😁

Yes!

A silly little ditty!

But often when you’re

Feeling slightly down,

You’ve got to find a way

To turn yourself around!

A Snowball flower!

Kind Regards and

Being a bit silly – K

Hello?

Can you see me?

You, sitting on the edge

Of my couch

Head tilted to your phone.

Can you hear me?

You sitting there

Physical body present,

Mindset unknown.

Can you talk to me?

You sitting there,

Quietly disengaged.

My inquiries,

Go unanswered.

Why are you here?

You sitting there,

Silent.

Me?

I feel trapped,

Sad,

Alone.

Kind Regards

and present – K

Infect

Individuality

Inside myself

I know my weakness’s

I know my strengths.

What triggers my tears,

What triggers my fears.

I have a grasp on

What brings me joy.

All that

Cannot define,

Me as a person.

Whether I’m bad

Or if I am good.

Not one thing

Above, can

Decrease my passion,

Deep within.

I WILL tell you,

I’m definitely NOT an

Opera Singer.

But with so many

Other things

I CAN DO!

My inner self

Knows I’m a winner.

Kind Regards and reminding you to concentrate on the positive – K

Attitude

Your attitude

Ain’t nothing new,

I perfected it

Long before you,

Were even born.

Rather funny,

That I,

Once, just like you,

Thought I knew

Everything too!

Surprise!

I didn’t.

In time, my dear,

I have to say,

There definitely,

Will come a day.

The one you-

Realize,

The words,

I speak are true.

In life

There are

Unrealized moments

That will mold you.

People that will hold you.

Other’s that,

Will set you free.

That’s just the way

It’s gonna be.

No one knows,

What the years will bring.

My hope,

You take time

To observe and absorb

All of it in,

And do your very best.

May you keep

Your open heart,

Give hugs to those in need,

Be kind,

And plant some

Hope, silliness,

Along with

Happiness seeds,

Wherever your

Path may lead you.

One last wish,

Is mine, selfishly.

At some point,

That path your on,

Brings you back

Towards me.

Moms hearts

Have a need

For their

Children’s endless

Joy and possibilities

And the chance

To experience

all the

Glorious gifts

Our universe

Has to offer.

As I recall

Our story,

Isn’t new at all.

Seems my mom,

Did regale one

Similar .

I didn’t believe her, either.

🤔

Xxooxxoo

Mentor

Always You

In the beginning,

You were closer

Than anyone could ever be.

Little flutters, kicks and

Finally, I held you.

Then every night, up at 3.

To feed, rock and nurture.

My love surrounded us

To keep you safe and warm.

Back to work,

I had to go,

Throughout my day

Constantly, worrying

Wondering.

What were you

Doing, thinking,

Eating?

Often I would cry.

Until I rushed to pick you up,

My eves were spent

Holding, hugging, rocking

Singing you a lullaby,

Until you finally slept.

Lovingly I peered

Upon my sleeping babe.

And time continued on.

Seasons passed.

🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

Days flew by

We tracked your height

With an old yard stick

A mark upon the door trim wood.

We were close

Life wasn’t perfect

But felt fabulous.

And Oh so good!

Soon you were off to school.

Everyday, I wondered

What you were

Doing, thinking.

As the sun went down

In our world.

After homework was done.

We sat around the

Kitchen table,

You would share your stories.

We’d laugh and giggle.

Often,

We’d rush to your

Baseball or basketball

Practice or a game.

As my day would

come to a close,

I would wonder

What was I doing

Right or wrong?

Was I teaching you enough?

Giving you life’s resources

To be

Accomplished in your life?

Often I searched for answers,

As I laid there

Trying to sleep.

And time went on.

Seasons passed.

Now,

As the sun gently rests

At the end of my day.

Random texts arrive.

Phone calls,

I’m blessed with

Pictures in the mail.

You share

what you are

Doing and thinking.

I am proud of what

You are accomplishing,

In your daily life.

When I go to bed at night.

I smile and am

Ever so thankful.

Knowing it’s time

And patience

That has kept us growing closer.

Though distance keeps us apart.

As the years go by

And the seasons pass.

As it has always been

Since your arrival.

No matter how old you are

Or where your life

Might take you,

In my heart

The truest love.

Will always belong

To you.❤️

Kind Regards and thinking about my children -K

Authentic

Each Morning I Awake

Saturday morning

I awaken,

Start the coffee,

Let the dogs out,

Let the dogs in,

It’s another day.

I pour my first cup,

Steaming roasted gold

Into my favorite

Coffee mug,

☕️

Savoringly sipping,

Still groggy,

Mind blurry,

In my

Early morning daze.

Opening up my notebook

I jot today’s date,

Morning’s mind fog

Laggardly dissipates.

“Eighty percent of success is showing up.” -Woody Allen

Kind Regards and wishing you a fabulous Saturday -K

Genie

One step back

Fret! Fret! Fret!

Imagined the worst!

Worried!

Uptight!

Paced!

Couldn’t eat!

Couldn’t sleep!

Shoulders met my earlobes!

Doubt!

Felt Insecure!

Overly sensitive!

All because

I misread

The situation!

Why?

An old habit!

I thought I’d overcome.

I’m a banana head!

Now?

Chalk it up!

Let it go!

Laugh it off!

Look in the mirror!

Make a silly face!

Give myself the raspberry!

****

Often I seem to mirror

New England weather,

Yesterday

windows open

After work

I raked!

Some lawn had appeared!

Today,

It snowed!

Mother Nature dear

What ARE you up to?

Let it go!

Laugh it off!

Go look in the mirror,

Make a funny face!

Give yourself a raspberry!

Stop being a banana head!

Ha!

****

Remember:

****

#Winning!

Kind Regards and chuckling -K

How I See It

Perspective,

We all have our own.

Excellent example:

My first husband was 5′ 10″ tall.

I am 5′ 10″ tall. (Truly, I am!).

He always thought of himself as being short, after all his father was over. 6′ as were most of the men in his family.

Me, my father was 6′ tall, BUT all the woman and my older brother were 5′ 8″ or much shorter. Therefore I grew up always feeling tall!

It was how we perceived ourselves.

Who was right?

Does it matter?

Realistically, neither of us were “10′ tall and bullet proof”, but we both felt that way when we met and fell in love. ❤️

Respect for one another’s perception is one of the greatest gifts we can give.💕

Kind Regards and #winning -K

Daily and Family Traditions

large2

Good morning!

They” say breakfast is the most important meal of day.

I add, start your day with a ritual that allows you a positive mindset.

My daily ritual:

Each morning, I awake, flipping open the covers as I exclaim to the dogs

“Time to make the doughnuts!” – they understand,  time

to get up, go out, pee, then their REWARD- A TREAT!

Happy tails.  🙂

Next, I make coffee, grab my pen, flip to a fresh page in my journal.

First, I write the current date, then add  +$49,000, +$477,111 plus at the very top of the page.

(A little something, I learned, listening to “The secret”.)

Next I scrawl, “May health, wealth, inner peace, self-assuredness,  love, friendship, companionship, happiness, security, comfort, contentment,  along with abundance and success embrace me and those I love, like a warm hug.”

IMG_0619

Next- Written next  is the single word “EXCELLENT!”

No matter what mood I am in when I first open my eyes, that is how I start the day.

I scribble:

A brief overview via bits and pieces of what happened yesterday, what I accomplished,  what may have caused stress to release it….. ta ta!

My day has officially begun!

Today is a bit different, my youngest granddaughter and I had a slumber party last night,

This allowed mommy and daddy to have a date night.

It’s little girl hugs, (cannot get enough) coffee, making a bowl of lucky charms and  heading out to the front porch with my daughters lap top.

Fresh air,  peepers singing  in the background and the glow of the laptop screen.

 

 As soon as my  daughter comes downstairs a competition is planned.

Breakfast BOGGLE! To date, I am the champ. My brain is fresh this time of day.

Will I hang onto my title? Let the game begin!!

Boggle has been a part of  my life since I was young, I in turn taught it to my children.

No one has any idea how many hours we joyously, with pencils and paper ready- have flipped that little box of random letters over, started the timer and frantically scribbled every word we could find.  Laughter, silliness, giggles, a family at play.

No cell phones, no tv – just human interaction. Good  ol’ fashioned fun! Bonding.

This is how we make memories.

 

In a few hours, Ill be back on a plane to NH. (tearful  good byes, yet so blessed we had the time together.)

FAMILY. TRADITIONS. COMING TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!

When was the last time you played games with your  family or friends?

 

Webster’s definition:

Definition of synchronize

  1. :  to happen at the same time

 

 

Have a glorious  Saturday! I will be thinking of you.

 

Kind Regards and all my love – K

When Dead of winters upon us
As January’s ’bout half through

Oft leaves a dark taste

Within our soul

Like an evil spell’s bitter brew.

Subzero Frosty raw nights

Sunny days void of warmth

By north wind swirling gusts.

No sign of Spring’s arrival

Life seems a useless bust.

A sad lonesome time of year

But does it have to be?

Alone or with a friend,

Try a bit of inside sports

Build that serotonin level up

With a fun filled night of WII!!

Give it a try.

For many years now

it has worked for me!!

☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️☃️

Kind Regards and

feeling hopeful-K
