A very brief blog post today about my random thoughts.

Just something to ponder.

 “Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you’re friends is easy. Being friends is not.” ― David Levithan, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List

Never allow the trivial, the least  of the things that matter overpower or circumvent the important things in life.

No matter what; don’t place family as second class, second place or play second fiddle.

Not about what you have or have not but who you are and what you are gonna do with it. Hence it’s the legacy you will leave behind.

Do not care overly much for wealth or power or fame, or one day you will meet someone who cares for none of these things, and you will realize how poor you have become. Rudyard Kipling

In all sincerity I want to love and be loved.

Let’s start the summer in love and gratefulness.

 Don’t you just love summer; fresh, clean, vibrant, sunny, childhood laze, pure, birds singing, bright flowers, relaxation, excitement, freeing, breeze, comfort, growth, smell of fresh mowed grass, lavender and lilac, lusciousness of the trees, long evenings, smell of BBQ, barefoot -oh the touch of crisp nature under your feet, taste of cold lemon tea, laughter of grandbabies playing in the garden. Watching the fantasies in the cloud. Quality time with family and friends. Summer gives strength for winter ahead. Reguveniation and energy from the sun is simply wonderful.

Let’s take those attributes of Summer and make them live in the people we know and love.

A Great Love Song entitled So Close:
One of my favorite love songs:
Night and day, you are the one
Only you ‘neath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far, It’s no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you day and night

♫ ♥ ♫ ☺ ♫

May this year 2013

BE your year to learn to love, to love, be loved and renew your love!
Love isn’t perfect and the one you love isn’t perfect and you/I aren’t perfect

BUT we keep moving forward to make it work.

The poem below is the poem I wrote for my husband on our 40th Anniversary Sept 2012.

No holds barred imperfection and all.

Happy 40th Anniversary

Some would say
that loving is just a
piece of heaven
or maybe
somewhere between
here and there
the entrance
to the musical ladder of rainbow colors
or maybe
 between earth and that far off gal-axy
 in the midst of a whisper or a breathe
can this be true?
 i must believe the unbelievable truth
forever we could be, in love, eternally
inspired by a miracle

Your grin
your confident athletic stride
across that classroom
caught my heart by surprise
bending down
to spin the bottle
pick me! yes me! just once!
eye to eye
a glimpse of your glassy sea of love
hair locks of black ,brush mine
hush! time suspended
 i close my eyes
As your lips touch my cheek

All my prayers answered
in that moment
 when into my life he came
 for he was heaven sent,
 i believe in our love
too young to know your
olympian prowess
wanting, needing
compassion in your embrace
tender moments
your mouth invite kisses
forever changed
love flowed amidst
the vigor of a gazelle
and the courageous lioness
 n’er a gentler man
than this
caress of my brow
Your whispers

Let’s go for a ride
it’s such a warm evening
climbing into car
top down
your left hand on the wheel
my head on your shoulder
your arm on mine
my right hand catching the wind
to locking my fingers in yours
our hair tangled
many joyous tears flowed free
stopping the car jumping out
let’s dance in the rain
doesn’t matter
hold me tight
don’t let me go
noble steed was he
as his arm slowly stroke my back
pulled me close
precious moments were these
it’s gonna be
A beautiful night tonight

At lover’s lane
captivated by his charm
as he sang to me
 it is your strength i see, as you sing
you’ve opened a window to heaven’s light
my love for you will burn so bright
the night is young let’s swim
under this blanket of stars
gathering driftwood to build a fire
your face shimmering in its blaze
 as i sit here on the beach
my normal life seems so out of reach
the waves hitting the sand
flankers fly while you hold my hand
passion has seized my soul
all is quiet now
Only the ebb and flow of your breath

This is more
than picture perfect
it’s real
where naive love’s caress
and angels’ wings
 meet hallelujah
young love,
better than wine
unaware of ancient bliss
where once a vacant lot
now a captivated heart
horizon clear,
hands turned fast
one, two, three, four,
fashioned by love
times are hard
but get back up
 your strength i make my own
for our future’s

We forgot how to play
no, we’ve lost our way
bitter words
let’s practise once more
into the depth
it shone again
savor love, love is beautiful
even at the end of your shift
at 4 am
tender touch
soft kiss on my cheek
snuggle in, warm my feet
tired, troubled
and how sweet magic returns
tender touch, lips sweet, fulfillment
 luminous door to the devine
our past came to kiss us here
wonderment, his voice, complete

But what about when I get old
will you still love me
on the ‘morrow?
 yea or née ’tis yea said i
oh love that wilt not let me go
love ’till evening fades
and dawn breaks
in another land
where happiness and love
fill an ocean eternal
who said?
there was ne’er a fountain of youth
ah we are sitting
at its feet
close to apple blossom flowers
With continuous ‘I Love You’!

Thanks for reading this post on my bLoG!

I LOVE that you came to visit!

Day 22 of my recent 30 Day Thankfulness Challenge; I am thankful for love.  😀

On this day I am thankful for love and those that love me back and when love isn’t reciprocated; for those who don’t love me back.

I don’t think I’m that great that you gotta love me; Although the Bible says you gotta love me.  As well all that is good says you should   😀    It is easy to love those that love you and do good to you; welcomes you with open arms and screams with delight upon your arrival.

This world and life iS really a bouquet of roses. Beautiful it sure is with a delightful aroma.

You can also get pricked by the thorns.
Pricked on the stem of it’s beauty. On a deeper level there could be a festered heart wound. It’s indicative of relationships and can be a dichotomy of love and hate.

I will miss you more then I usually do.

Christmas magic dictates love, hugs, family atmosphere.
This Christmas there will be more loneliness for so many this year. I wonder if asking and giving forgiveness would have made the difference.

Love is such an enormous wonderful cloak of protection. What is it about Love that it Eradicates such pain and woe when mixed with forgiveness.

Love also means we are compassionate and truly have the ability to weep with those that weep, laugh with those that laugh. Love gives hope, strength and life.

Day 22 christmaslove

Here is one of my poems on Love

is who i am
born to love
to give
born to live
in glory, honor
esteem and vitality,
and wonderfully
made am i
this is the
portabellow of love
but then the giver
of earthly life
started with you
in love,
tainted the vision
of love i knew
sum of all tears
true love and fragrance
of acceptance
nutured by god above
giver of purest love,
not based on
your neglect
but on the giver
of life in me
select not
entrust my identity
with you
but creator
has made me perfect
to sit in heavenly places,
with a grateful heart
I am secure
love who i am
now I can
