Silent Hugs – One-Liner Wednesday

Nothing is said as he reaches out his arms for a hug.


Seriously, my eldest nephew just really likes hugs, but he’s not the most verbal of people and so he’ll just hold out his arms. They always make me feel better.

Sight – Thankful Thursday

Today I am grateful for being able to actually see things without giving myself a headache.

Turns out that one of my eyes is nearsighted and the other is farsighted and it can really mess up your depth perception. For example, was supposed to dig the pond maybe a little over 4 feet at its deepest. Its deepest point is a little over 6 feet. Yeah…

Anyway, these are my new glasses and I am very glad that we finally got this worked out.

Make sure to check out the original Thankful Thursday.

Soft as a Petal, With Thorns to Protect

Reality is more  wonderful than I knew
Only some are blessed with more than one
Seeking love and sharing in return
Even as they embrace a new world

Here’s wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all and sundry.

To Feel or Not To Feel – Thankful Thursday

Reaching back to who I was
Even as I must continue forward
Going to take my licks as they come
Especially when I have earned them
Teaching and learning and always still yearning

To be more than I once was.

This might be strange, but I’m grateful for the feeling of regret today. I won’t go into why, but I am grateful for the ability to feel this emotion, just so long as it doesn’t accidentally take over my life.

Check out the original Thankful Thursday.
