Through the Open Door

IMG_9908

Through the open door, adventure awaits

You can fly with your new fairy wings

Soar through the sky, into fantasy’s gates

Play with elves, nymphs, and a unicorn that sings

 

Through the open door, anything can happen

You can run as fast as a cheetah does

Or find a friendly centaur to take campin’

Ever want to step inside a beehive and listen to the buzz?

 

Through the open door, that’s where you witness the magic

Climb a great sycamore with the squirrels and chipmunks

See a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly is a great trick

Have you ever played with an otter that has such spunk?

 

Through the open door, you can decide what to do or where to go

You can even decide to be someone or something new

Want to help the sun rise or help a great river flow?

Dance with a dinosaur or live in a tree, there’s nothing you can’t do

Happy New Year

2017-1

Another year is gone and a new one has began. A new chapter has started, it’s time to make these 365 pages, well 364 now, count. Things will happen that are out of our control and we’re bound to face loss, death, illness, and so on. But, that doesn’t mean we have to let the bad circumstances we find ourselves faced with bring us down. They say our lives are what we make of it, so I am trying to keep that in mind as I wake up each day. I am ready to face this new year head on, are you? 🙂

No excuses, no blaming the past, no pointing the finger at someone else, and no giving up! Let’s see what we want to achieve and begin, one step at a time – Rome wasn’t built in a day they say, and make things happen. Want to publish a book, start a business, go back to school, move, get a new job, find love, make new friends, strengthen the relationships you already have, or maybe even just something like dye your hair and do something to feel better about yourself? Whatever it is you have in mind for 2017, you’re in the driver’s seat, so go on and make things happen! Now, I need to take my own advice! Happy New Year, friends! Let’s make this one great!

Random Thought

Something that is truly amazing is when readers can find meaning in a piece that the writer never even considered until the readers said something.

Just food for thought. ♡

Out With the Old, In With the New…..

2015

Well another year is gone and a new one has started. 2014 was quite the year. A lot of good and bad happened. Lost loved ones, car accidents, changed friendships, loss of a job and then a new job, an engagement, frustrations, sorrows, joys, laughter, and lots of love in 2014. Through it all, the good and bad, I have to say that overall 2014 was a fairly good year.

I am looking forward to 2015 though. I aim to get better at my job and learn as much as I can. There’s going to be many births to celebrate, including my son’s 13th. My kiddo will become a teenager, even closer to leaving childhood behind. I am excited to see where he goes from here. He’s so talented and intelligent. There’s no telling what he can do. And one of the biggest events that I am looking forward to is my wedding. In 135 days, I will become Mrs. Gray. I can hardly wait to marry my best friend and partner. I have waited for what feels like a lifetime to find my other half. It will be a day to celebrate. My handsome son will be dressed to the nines and will give me away. Family and friends will surround us so that we can share that wonderful occasion with those we love most.

There’s so much to celebrate in 2015. What a year this will be. I hope that 2015 is full of lots of laughter, joy, accomplished goals, dreams come true, wonderful memories made, and lots of love shared for all of you. I believe it will be whatever we want to make it. If we’re determined to have a good year, then I truly think it will be one. I am determined to make this the best year to date. Here’s to 2015 and making it amazing!

Ode to Lucy

Image

Here is an ode to our three month old puppy

She is very playful & full of so much energy

Where are my manners, I must make an apology

Let me introduce you to the lovable & rambunctious Lucy

 

I grew up with cats being my companions

In every way, cats to me over dogs were champions

I felt that dogs in general were hard to train & just plain mean

For me, it was best if they weren’t a part of my daily scene

 

There was their smell to contend with & their hair getting all over me

If I had to be around them, I silently prayed that they’d just leave me be

I swore I’d never own dogs, never have to train one to sit or take them out to pee

That from all of the burdens & responsibilities of owning one, I’d be free

 

But then came along a man most precious to my heart

One whom has had my love from our very start

He is my synonym in many ways, though an opposite in others

Like to him, cats were pests & dogs are just playful & furry type brothers

 

A little ways down the road, we found an adorable black kitty

His little paws & tiny mews had taken a hold of me

Once named Onyx, my beloved said he supposed it was meant to be

So from his home at Hoffer’s, Onyx was set free

 

He did fall in love with our little kitten

It’s true, it wasn’t long before he was smitten

But still within him a passion for dogs did burn

In his heart, a passion to have one of his own did yearn

 

Months later, my brother’s dog had 11 puppies

Upon a visit there, something was known to him instantly

He wanted to choose one for us to make a part of our little family

So together we picked one out & then we named her Lucy

 

On Christmas Day 2013, we brought her home to meet Onyx

It wasn’t love at first sight, but in their own way, they did mix

As time has gone by, we’ve seen them play together

Hoping that over time, they’ll become best friends forever

 

I am still not entirely used to having a puppy

But I must admit, she has begun to grow on me

Her sad eyes & cuddles are adorable, well it’s so easy to see

That when I hold her, I am happy Lucy is a part of our little family

I Would Go Anywhere With You

Lighthouse

What might I say to you

That would be something new?

I wish not to bother or bore

Or give you cause to snore

 

To become predictable isn’t something I desire

I want to live a life full of passion and fire

Let us go on an adventure, two, or maybe even three

Take my hand, there are many things I want you to see

 

Let us see distant lands

With beautiful lakes and golden sands

You could wander with me in my dreams

To places where the sun off our skin gleams

 

I would go anywhere with you

Or try anything bold, brilliant, and new

There are many sights to see, things to do, and foods yet to try

The possibilities are as endless as the sky

 

I am ready whenever you are

Let’s set our sights there upon that very star

If we set out together as a team

Then I believe nothing is as impossible as it might seem

 

Let us have God light the way

Wherever He might, wherever He may

Through seemingly endless stormy nights

That reveal within us the brightest of lights

A blog redefined

206671_153841121346296_6028266_n

I changed the title to my blog today. Part of the reason for that is that I don’t want my blog or myself to be defined by a disorder I have. Yes, I do have bi-polar disorder and I am not ashamed of that. I have learned how to control it (most days lol) and don’t let it hinder me. However, I felt it was time for a better title for my blog.

It is now titled Life, Love, Poetry, & Other Randomness. I feel it’s a better fit and that it aptly describes my blog’s purpose. I share stories about my life, mostly to inspire others and sometimes just share info about me so that you, my readers, can get to know me better. I also talk quite a bit about love, the love I feel for others, the love I am blessed others feel for me, and just about love in general. I do also share some of my poetry from time to time, when inspiration hits. The other randomness part explains itself. One never knows what goes on in my mind. Today I could post about music, tomorrow it might be about ways I like to cook chicken. 😉 Hmm, chicken.

Anyway, I really do hope you’ve all enjoyed reading my blog thus far and I thank you for your support! You’re an amazing group of people and I am honored to both have you as readers and to be a reader of your works as well. Let’s keep it up, eh? 🙂 Here’s to us bloggers!  And here’s to more writing, music, photography, and much more…let it reach out to as many as are willing to be taught and inspired! 🙂

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
