Thursday Thoughts


The Foggy Mountains


It’s rainy and cold outside,
So much I need to say
I keep a lot of things in my heart
So people don’t turn away.

Sometimes I let it out in words
So they will understand
What it’s like to live each day
In an unpromised land.

I read, I stitch, I play music,
In hopes to ease my mind
Of what the fog brings me
From time to time.

Every day brings on joy and challenges
The difference is really a choice
To grab a hold of the joy
And leave the rest unvoiced.

So, look at the mountains
And what they really do tell
The rains from the Heavens
And the fog from the Hell.

Choosing the rain from the Heavens
Is what I plan to do
And whatever it takes in life
to simply see me through.

The mountains teach us lessons
We all could follow well
If we only could see through the fog
Of the rest, we would call our Hell.

On brighter days when sunshine
beam down from the Heavens bright
I remember who made me intricately
and who will always hold me tight.

Just like the mountains that stand tall,
firm, and resistent
I will live my life in the sunshine
and not choose the distance.

Happy Valentines' day to all

I haven't posted in a while because my heart broke when Flossie Mae was either taken or killed this week. I know for sure she didn't just roam away because she lay by the front door or on the porch swing ALL the time. She pined to come inside so much but due to allergies she stayed outside with Thomas unless the temps got below freezing then they went into the basement level. I felt so bad by day 3 as I figured something must have happened to her. I'm not even going to go there where she could be as I just can't but if she passed away, I hope she was not hurting.

I will miss her. Thomas misses her alot. He didn't even eat for 3 days. But in my heart I knew after this long she went over to Rainbow Bridge where hopefully she met Ren and is now a very happy cat again.
Isn't it amazing how close we get to our furbabies? I know I do.

Well, anyways I hope your Valentines is going to be a good one. I got the best card I've ever got in my life and will hold it to my heart always.



This was at my door and very special message in a bottle. A very sweet, sweet gift.
I will cherish it forever.



The words written I will hold close to my heart forever.



I am reading, reading, and more reading. This is one of the books and I also got a brand new hardback called The Circle Maker. I didn't put these on my Kindle because I knew I wanted to write in them.
So my shelf is full of love books.

I know I still have stitching to finish so I can frame as well and hopefully on this gray, cloudy, misty cold day, I can get it all done.



This is the one in the header pic I finished last year and a freebie on Primitive Betty's blog. If you haven't been to her blog she is THE sweetest and has the best freebie's too. Take a look see.

Seems like it was yesterday I was playing with Flossie Mae!

Bless her heart where ever she parted and how.


She was a rescue but within one hour became family and lounged sleeping on the back porch in the sunlight.



And Abbie sends her love to all on this love-filled day!

She is a bit spoiled methinks.

She promptly and lightly patted me on the head this morning for her treat at 7am.

She likes to stick to a schedule.

She sends to all a warm, furry kiss and hug to let you know you are special no matter where you live and where you are.



From this love shack to another,

Happy Valentine's Day!

Jennifer
