memories ..................

As I go through my  Book of Life,  I find memories .
Precious memories of home with a childhood full of love and laughter,

Magical memories with pictures of  my sister, cousins and friends playing in the rain, of mountains  climbed, playing hide and seek during moonlit nights.

I come across and go quickly through pages of crowded years with blurred  memories …….

Treasured memories of each child being part of me, moving inside me …. a greater blessing I cannot ask for.  I have wishes and hopes for you my dear princess and princes.  I love you, will love you forever !!!

A dark page on this Book ,  I do not want to read.  Shattered memories not worth keeping. Feelings of betrayal, pain, disgust, rage, and frustration.  Memories of how the fabric of a happy home was torn apart.

Keepers of memories, thank you for preserving my lasting, treasured chapters.  Thank you for helping me go through the darkest times printed on the Book.  Thank you for the new chapters of travels to happier times with children and grandchildren , of treasured family and friends.

My Book of Life,  keeper of memories,  paint a lot of  bright colors to remember me by.

Slow Dance

While surfing the net today, i found this beautiful poem and would like to share this with you……………   the author is David l. Weatherford.


Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short,
The music won’t last.
Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running
through your head?
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
Ever told your child, "We’ll do it tomorrow?"
And in your haste, not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time to call and say "Hi?"
You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.
When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift…
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before your song is over.
