My lovely mother is having a birthday this week.
I wanted to take the time to wish her a very
HAPPY Birthday.

All that I am or hope to be I owe to my mother.
She is always very patient and kind.
She's a very strong willed woman.
Very determined!
But stubborn at times. LOL!
I could always see the calm in her eyes
for she was never in for dramatics.
(My poem tells a lot about her eyes.)
She exhibits a gentle strength,
a rare patience, discipline, 
deep underlying strength (which always amazed me)
and steadfast persistence.
She is always very serious about her family.
She loves us all very deeply
and has always been a solid rock and
has built a firm foundation that we can rely on.

I love her very much.

Dear Sweet Momma,
Here's to your health!

The Power of the Flower

 photo from Pinterest

Do you remember the days of Flower Power? Young people running around with flowers in their hair, sticking stems of flowers down the barrels of rifles of our soldiers in our streets? I was reflecting back on those days, not that I was a flower child, but young people were doing whatever they could to try and bring back some peace to our Nation. There were even songs written about them. Well, I got to thinking about the power that the flower has over us and wrote this little poem.

#2. An Angel Says...Peace Starts

I dearly love 'An Angel Says' sayings. They are uplifting and can give you food for thought. With the happenings that are going on in our world today, I thought this one to be very appropriate.

We all come to this world for a reason. Maybe it's to develop
and strengthen the fruits of our spirit, like love, peace, kindness,
patience, joy, and even self-control. And maybe even to help
develop those fruits in others. I do believe that all people were
to come to this earth to become more Christ-like, but most are
taken by sin and not by the Spirit.
(Romans 8: 5 -
Those who live according to the sinful nature
have their minds set on what that nature desires;
but those who live in accordance with the Sprirt
have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.)

So take the advice of the Angel and BE that person
that brings peace to this world.

Here's to your health!

#1. An Angel Says...Each Time

A few years back my dear friend and cousin (by marriage) started sending me some beautiful sayings that started with "An Angel Says," and it proceeded with a lovely quote. I enjoyed them so much that I started sending them out to everyone in my office. It was uplifting and everyone seemed to enjoy them. As a matter of fact, if I missed sending them one, they would start asking me when I was going to send them their Angel.

SO, I decided that I would spice them up in how they could be displayed. I just don't know how to make them bigger on this page. In order to view them better, hit on the photo. I hope you enjoy them, also.

Here's to your health!

The Beauty of a Thistle

It has been a while since I have been able to post anything
and I apologize. The time just seems to slip away.

I took this photo some time ago, and I loved
the way the macro shot just jumps out at you. I
was mesmerized at it's beauty and these words
just came to me.

Hit on the photo to enlarge for better viewing and reading.

I hope you enjoy my poem.

Here's to your health!
