I have enjoyed sharing my prose writings with you the last several years. I am ending this blog and concentrating on putting my writings into a book for family and friends.

~ Do The Best We Can ~

Doing our best, is what life is about
Trying each day to be a good person
And to be kind and considerate to others
To be helpful and compassionate, too
Being Christ-like is our goal
And He will help us to be the best we can

~ Shopping ~

Sometimes the saying
Shop till we drop
Is very appropriate
And fits the day.

~ Moving Forward ~

Each event and trial in our life
Has a way of teaching us something
But we must stop to ponder what it is
We must not take anything for granted
Life’s experiences are to help us to grow
As we move forward on our journey.

~ MY FRIEND #2 ~

My friend is very sad
He is hurting from depression
I want to help so very much
But my friend just shuts me out
I will continue to stay by his side
And soon he will be happy again

How can they possibly know
The tears they bring upon us
Don’t they know how much we need them
Don’t they care about our feelings
How can they be so insensitive
To our loneliness and need to be accepted.

Tough life, tough times
Be a survivor
Be strong, be brave
You can do it…start now

Sitting in the park
Is my favorite place to be
It’s quiet and it’s lovely
I can think without interruptions

I feel drained, my nerves are shot
I just want to get away from her
She talks, talks, talks constantly
And I am not like that
Listening to non stop talking wears me out
I need my quiet alone time

They just worry about having food and water
And lay around and sleep all day
They’re content with a little attention
A maybe a pet or two
They don’t have to worry about money
And certainly not government stuff

When things go wrong in your life…have faith
When the world is in turmoil…have faith
Have faith when there is blackness all around
And when that blackness seems to pull you in

Christmas means many things to many people
But one universal feeling shines through
Love in our heart just grows larger
As we are touched and softened and changed

When you have a happy day….celebrate it
When you have a success….celebrate it
When you have a day without the blues….celebrate it
And when you have a day without pain….celebrate it

Whenever you are sad and very blue
Whistle a happy tune
Whenever you are frightened and lost
Whistle a happy tune
Sad, blue, frightened, lost, happy….
All can be helped by whistling a happy tune

It feels good and lifts the way we view ourselves
When we can take charge of who we are
When we can be in control and follow through
With our good thoughts, feelings and determinations

Don’t be afraid to try something new and different
Do something fun and something exciting
You will never know unless you try it
You might discover something you’ve been really missing

Life is so unpredictable
Each day is hardly ever the same
One day might be sad and difficult
The next is happy and easy

I am so glad my hidden ability came out of hiding
Writing seems to come very easy for me
It is magical what it seems to do, therapy wise
It calms, refreshes, stimulates my brain
And it makes me feel good about myself
When I know that what I write can help others

My heart and soul aches and misses my sweetheart
His presence and spirit, gone for many years now
The love we had was so tender and sweet and special
Nothing or no one ever again will and can compare

Something magical and transforming takes place
When I lose myself in reading a book
It takes a special author to captivate and whisk me away
Into different times and places and seasons and worlds
For they weave a story that pulls me deeply in
And I am totally, helplessly, and hopelessly hooked

My one friend is truly choice above all other friends
I know that my friend honestly cares about me
Because my friend will call me often to see how I am doing
Or will say, “Lets do lunch or a movie” and makes a date
My friend will be there quickly when I need the help
I truly want to be a friend like that to others

Fall with its cooler temperatures
Is very welcome to my senses
The air is fresh and breezy
A time to sit outdoors more

I love the time that I spend alone
For I enjoy my own company
When I am alone I can unwind
From the many stresses of the day
Being by myself recharges me
Then with renewed energy, I am good again

Yesterday we were young, today we have greatly aged
We can’t hide or run from it…it comes to all of us
It’s important not to think the word “old”
Keep a positive mental outlook and do our very best
Stay fit and healthy, that will surely help us a lot
To ride the waves of aging, and to be able to enjoy the ride

Sometimes we take Mr. Sun for granted
He is usually above us all the time
Do we stop, to appreciate what he does
Because…we really miss him when he is hidden

We all go through our times of suffering
Sometimes it can purify and refine us
We also can learn great lessons from it
Like who we are and who we can become

~ TIME ~

What do we do with our time each day
How do we spend each minute, each hour
Do we waste it, and think nothing of it
Do we treasure it and do all the good we can

Why is it so hard for me
To get motivated to go and exercise
I know that it is good for me
And I feel better when I do
But golly that extra boost I need
Doesn’t seem to happen easily

I had my feelings hurt…
How do I feel about the new neighbor…
Feel how soft this fabric is…
I feel a pain in my hand….
The air feels damp…
I feel very happy….
I feel like I am being judged….
I feel the need for change…
I feel chilly…
I feel her sadness….

There are tears of happiness and sadness
And tears of pain and misery
But oh how precious is the friend
Who, by your side, sheds them with you

I call myself a movie nut
I just love, love, love them
They relax and take me to La-La-Land
Where I can forget my problems for awhile
