Don’t Forget to Look UP in 2019

 

When things start to look bleak
Don’t forget to look up to seek,
Peace and love you’ll find.

Merry Christmas 2018

I will be blessed once again to have Christmas with my husband and daughter,
As I have gotten older, I don’t take that for granted, as I did when younger,
I humbly thank you for that blessing God, and I am so glad you brought her,
To me once again and my dear Barry, please give us years together longer.

To my parents, much loved and continually thought of, give them a precious hug and kiss,
Let them know I am doing well and let them know I carry on their light as best I can do,
Remind them that each and every day they come to mind and are sorely missed,
I believe that I will see them once again one day, my heart tells me that it is true.

To my brother, Glen Miller, I wish we had not so much distance between us,
But my heart is always close to him and family, distance does not stop loving thoughts,
I wish to him and his family more love, less pain and a life of ease and less fuss,
May there come a special gift, may my brother especially know that I love him lots.

To all my family and friends, I know some have had deep sorrows this year,
I am truly sorry for the ache in your hearts and the tears you all shed,
I sent and keep sending you my love, prayers and best wishes for no more tears,
Have a blessed Christmas & love one and all, Happy 2019! All has been said!

Birthday Thoughts & Thanksgiving Wishes!

Today is my birthday. This day is bittersweet because I no longer hear from many of my loves that are so dear to me since they are gone from this life. I also know that I have lived more days than I have left in this temporal world.Dreams come trueDoctors told me that I would pass before I was 50, so I consider each day beyond it a bonus day! However, I have learned so many precious lessons. My love, my compassion and my faith have grown. I used to let fear and insecurity keep me down, I now do my best at whatever it may be, even though I may still be afraid. Do not be a slave to fear. Fear is a thief! It robs you and me of wonderful opportunities to share precious moments and wonderful challenges that life presents. Most importantly, do not forget to share love, wisdom and kindness. Lastly, have a lovely Thanksgiving. I wish you love and blessings, and I know that it has been a difficult year for many, but I hope that there is one thing to be grateful for during this. Know, without a doubt that this is written with love and care. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Happy Flag Day

Thank you, Miss Betsy Ross, for making the flag, red, white and blue,
It is the most beautiful flag; this is so very true,
With its thirteen stripes and its thirteen stars,
In the 242 years since, as a country, we have many battle scars,
We have added 37 new states and stars to your flag as we grew,
I hope that you would have liked my tribute to honor you.Betsy Ross

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Haiku, Tyrant & Hope

We Should Learn from Ann Frank

Faith gives us the hope,

Even living among tyrants,

We have strength to cope.

Remember Hitler,

Such a cruel man, killing Jews,

Please be kind, be gentler.

A hero was Ann Frank,

‘Cause she risked her life to help,

Held in small room, dank.

Isis, My Cat

Isis

An Egyptian Goddess is my dear cat of cats

Start to pet her and soon, away she scats,

But, if my pups are getting loves, up she jumps to get her pats,

She thinks she is the goddess of this home. “Forget those doggy brats.”

Not unlike her mythical namesake from the long ago past.

Memorial Day Haiku

Memorial Day Haiku

Some have died far away,

Thoughts and prayers for them today,

Thank you for freedom.
