Birthday Delights

(I will keep this short as I have two long reports to write for school and it is already 5:30 pm on a Sunday).

To write this post
Is exciting at most
Because here I disclose
Blessings that arose

It was my birthday yesterday
And although I had a cold
My discomfort was controlled
And out of bed, I rolled

To eat food that I like
Sushi, ice cream delights
To receive flowers full of life
Are worth a snow day's drive

What more, I got to go
To the steam room
Away from snow
Look at me
Sitting as if . . .
I was meditating
Does it show?

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


Surrounding  Visiting Spending time with the people you love Takes a chunk of your time Yet the pay off is worthwhile I did these just yesterday and the day before While the days were bright, no rain, no pour So today it’s wet and we could not go out  I am thankful we did as we all look up
