Thankful for the Written Words

Another Week, Another Reason to Be Thankful
This week is like a treasure hunt.
I had to look for reasons to be grateful.
I found them in my family, outdoors, my home, my bookcase, and my . . . Iphone! What do you know?
***
I am still lucky I have many reasons to be thankful. Some people, some nations, some groups are less fortunate. Let us shower them with compassion. May the leaders and future leaders act with just and kindness to all.



(1) I almost did not make it
And miss this week
Thank God it's quick
As I'm tired and weak

(2) But I am glad
My son was transferred
To a facility
Where he'll get treatment

(3) The first pic's my daughter
Before her court
It's good she dressed
With no ripped clothes

Instead, she wore
This one piece outfit
With matching skorts
And tasteful print

I got myself to walk outdoors
Before I got buried with bills and chores

(4) I really should
Get out more often
And free my brain,
Take breaks from problems,
Admire the flowers
Take some bright pictures
Breathe in some fresh air
And watch the nice views

(5) Here is my mom
Wearing a red dress
Behind hers are--
Religious figures

She makes me smile
With her poses for pictures
She looks so happy
With her little adventures

Pretty soon she will
Fly back to the Philippines
Back to her business
Her lying-ins

(6) I got a recipe
From the good old web
That uses coconut
For cookies to bake

(7, 8) Next, are some quotes
I cropped this weekend
Words to live by
My cell phone app sent

(9) Here's a book I have
With tips for people
With narcissist partner
Who is a trouble

I mentioned the book
To a friend who might need it
I hope she gets it
And really use it

(10) Last pictured here
Is my bible app
So handy and useful
I can read in a snap

That's all my folks
I'm thankful I did this
Just writing my gratitude
Lifts up my spirit

Join us for another week of gratitude in Lizzi and the gang's Ttot blog party.
Come on.
You must have reasons to be thankful

Resistance

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
