Tribute to Glen, My Brother, 2020

Today, at 8:34 PM, a baby boy came into the world 44 years ago,

Nearly eleven years and nine months after me came my little, big bro,

Weighing in at a whopping nine pounds, eight ounces, yet two weeks early was he,

I must admit to a slight disappointment because I hoped the baby was a little she.

However, it only took a moment for me to fall in love with his obvious charm,

I thanked God for an answered prayer, so it was my job to protect my boy from harm,

I took my sisterly duties very seriously to keep him well-fed as well as safe and warm.

Happy birthday dear, brother, I am so sorry we do not see each other much more,

But, I still love you because you were the first baby that I did so adore to the core!!

My Champ Loki!

My sweet little Loki & his Mommy went to the river,

To swim, to cool off and probably shiver & quiver,

But it was busy, so him and Mom decided to go for a run,

But, it was almost tragic, and it was not at all fun!

Freyja, heard the call and started to run along fast,

Loki, was not quite so fast as a car came roaring past,

hitting poor little Little Loki on the side of his face,

he rolled under the car, saved by God’s unfailing grace.

Thank you Jesus for taking care of him & protecting him too,

Another loss, I would not of known what the heck to do!115933075_393306905390384_5362011053716345477_n115830916_2567477323562305_5735897212957406919_n

Hangin’ Hammocks Can Be Hazardous, but Fun Too

What my kid has to go through just to read and relax on a camping trip,

As soon as she tried to lay on the silly hammock, it started to sway and tip,

When she had climbed most of the way onto it, to the ground it did dip,

On a brighter note, she wasn’t hurt since the hammock didn’t totally flip,

The great book had to wait a bit; until the tree had a strong enough grip!

What I Think My Cat Thinks….

Isis sleeping!

Uggg, it is so hard to sleep with all  of these dogs around,

They tease me. and on me, they constantly bound,

They are so dumb that they don’t know I am the queen of this home,

No dog is going to keep me, I GUARANTEE you, from my daily roam.

A positively lovely cat like me needs her undisturbed beauty sleep,

I must cover my eyes to get some peace; thank you all a heap!

Mom & dad wedding

I wanted to share some of my mom’s writings; eight years ago, she went Home to her eternal rest. I hope and pray that she love, self-worth and peace that she could not find in this life. She was very in love with my step-father at the time she wrote these poems. He didn’t love her as much! The above photo was/is my parents on their wedding day 59 years ago! I wish it had been happier for them! Nobody can deny that she had a way with with words! I will see you when my time comes at the feet of Jesus! Until than, I love and miss you everyday! I hope you know now that there is always hope! This poem below is about my brother

Glen's poem from Mom

Things I Have Learned Being A Mom

1. I still miss my own Mom just as much as ever. I wish there were visiting hours in Heaven.

2. I don’t stop being concerned just because she is grown.

3. My love is unconditional.

4.  I understand God better.

5. I can’t be both a Mom and a Dad since Barry died last year. I am not good at it.

6. I can’t keep her from making mistakes.

7. I can never say too many prayers for her.

8. I love her more and more each day.

9. She was my dearest SURPRISE I will have in life.

10. I still am learning to be the best possible mom.

11. As much as I want to be, she will NEVER think that I am a funny person!
