Monday's Musings

Today was a bit of fun, a bit of not so fun, a bit of other stuff, baggage. There are days I would love NOT to collect baggage at baggage claim but it's something we all must do in one way or another.


Broken Trust
Pure Rejection repeatedly
repetative hardships
helping others with repetative hardships
picking up the pieces of a broken heart, every day
 and having the courage to admit it.

Amazed at the folks ( and they know who they are)  who break it and still peak an interest.


I've become to like that word........ really?

It gives me time to pause

 to take a breath,

 so I will be reminded to say less and not more.

To listen.

Because in the dead cold silence that has been created by the people in life we thought knew us and loved us the most in the world ( or pretended to), I hear much more in their silence and even though disheartening and not easily dismissed as some might think,

it illuminates my understanding of the situation, in bits of color,in  many rays of the spectrum across every day I awake.


  1. Dearest Jennifer,

    Well, your Monday's Musings were some real deep thoughts and so were your selection of quotes! One would learn a lot if more people would have such depth!
    You work with needle and thread and meanwhile you can ponder... It is one of the best therapies and a healthy one for it keeps you very alert!

    Have a great week and keep up your support to others; you seem to be a very kind and loving person with lots of inner beauty!


  2. Jennifer, I'm so sorry, and I do understand. Blessings

  3. The Sounds of Silence. Sometimes welcomed, understood and encouraged, although, depending on the source, sometimes deafening.
    Be always in in stitches.

  4. Hugs and kisses, Peaches :)
    I think you are fantabulous!

  5. I sense that you need hugs - so consider them given!

  6. "Because of the dead cold silence.........." You have found the words that express my heart. Thanks so much for your insight and amazing way with words.
    Hope all is going better for you.
    Many blessings to you.

  7. Sounds like some serious soul searching. ((hugs))

  8. Jennifer, I hope Tuesday finds you feeling a little better about the world. Just snuggle with Abbie and all will seem right in your world.
