Why do I write? I believe it’s like a runner who loves to run it’s a need a drive . It’s something that your body craves when it discovers it just like how someones mind craves to write words down on paper that the mind wants to express,. and likes the feeling of freedom it gives them . Runners run to also relieve stress and clears their mind, same as it does for a writer . Now the question is WHY do I write? well all that I have stated but it’s more then that I have been writing since I was a teenager I can’t count the amount of Journals I have had and then the endless amount of poems I’ve written thoughts that are in my head. When your a teenager my favorite place to take a notebook and pen and write was an old abandon covered bridge, listening to the walls of the old wood creak as the wind would blow through those warn down walls and the beautiful sound of the the stream was a perfect place. I love the satisfaction of it .After I started a family I got busy with them and writing went to the side a bit. Off and on if I had a moment I would write but not as much as I wanted . I have chronic hip issues and I cannot run to relieve my stress so writing helps a lot and now with my kids growing up my daughter an adult now and my son a teenager and another yr to graduate High school I have the time now and do I need this more then ever.
I started this blog about a yr ago and it’s about my life with my family everyday life going on’s the stresses of having kids teenagers writing about my other interests .To some who read this will probably get board and just pass by it and to some may like it for them thank you. believe me I am not writing this blog for a ton of views yes it would be nice it feels good when I see the likes but my simple little issues are not for everyone and I know that, but at times it does hurt when I do not get a like and I doubt myself and I question everything I wrote…yes my grammar is not up to date. the writing structure needs to be worked on but sadly I just get on here and just write what come out of my thoughts and really do not thing about it. but I do know I love all my followers and appreciate them and me and read my post. I try to as well. So once again a big THANK YOU!
So this is my photo for my photo Monday. It’s pretty isn’t it? well I think so and my daughter thought so as well. As we sat in her car and the water went swooshing I believe that’s a word well will go with it because that’s how it sound as it went around us and the scent of bumble gum was in the air and the water just kept hitting every side of her car and the the lighted sign lite up telling us the car now was going to get wax sprayed on it and this is what formed on the windshield yes we are in a car wash hahaha and the wax was rainbow color . pretty amazing ….well we thought so if you haven’t figured it out yet ,well let me say it doesn’t take much to impress us and take a picture of it …yes we are crazy we where snapping away pics of this. If people could of seen us they would of thought we had some serious issues but sadly never saw colored wax. so I thought this would be perfect to post because it was just so different then my other photos I have posted. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
This years Valentines Day was a quiet one , My husband and I where not feeling that great ..not surprised with everything that is going around at the moment so we ordered in from one of our favorite places enjoyed a quiet but delicious meal . Our kids where out so it was very quiet .. then we decides to settle in our bedroom and and get cozy under the the covers and watch our shows we watch on Tuesday nights and so we laughed mind you in between coughing and the kitty Miss Abigail scratching at our bed ….okay so not the most romantic night but lets see we will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary next week and that isn’t adding in the fact 4yrs together before that. we must be doing something right hahaha .and adding in sickness what can you do so we made the best of it . I must say the I loved it and it was so simple and cozy and nice, sometimes the littlest things are the most meaningful and memorable ,Didn’t I say in my past posts its the simple things in life that makes me happy.
Love.. such a small simple word well to some with such a big meaning . Take a moment and really look at this word and ask yourself what does it mean to you? selfless ,selfish good.. bad ..powerful sincere .Think about it.
Does anyone ever just wonder why we just can’t live just the way we are…happy just being happy. do not get me wrong goals of success are great but not everyone feels this way ,some just want to live simple just be … find a decent job that supports their means and just do what you enjoy whether that is snowboarding in the Colorado’s ,biking across the state just enjoying life and nature or the girl who loves her job at a flower shop and is so good at making people smile when they ask for advice on flowers and they love it or the wife who just wants to stay home with their child and be a mother and their husband is fine with it.simpleness without judgement is that possible ? maybe for the strong who can handle the judgement of your not living up to your potential .. maybe ? but your happy this is what you want . I know how people want to climb that ladder of success but at the top of that ladder is not for everyone and we should not judge . I just had to get this thought out for those who just want to just simply live.
It’s Friday night, whats that mean to you? well for me let’s see we are all home My daughter is down in her apartment my son in his room with his bedroom walls rocking from his music. and my husband and I are in our bedroom he is watching television while I am on my laptop. oh can’t forget my pup is at the foot of the bed sleeping, yes sound boring I am sure to some… to me it’s contentment I you told simple is what I like I will take any moment we are all home together and safe .At the beginning of the week when school started back a young married couple in their middle 20’s I would say a local couple two towns over from where we live was in a horrible car accident I can’t say if horrible even defines how bad.. they were headed I believe to work at 5 in the morning and some how hit a tractor trailer truck…nothing was left of their poor car .. I believe they died on site, sad thing is they left 3 children all under the age of five. the whole situation is devastating , for whatever reason this happened doesn’t matter it just shows how short life is and how fast it can be taken away . So hug your love ones tonight and if your spending a Friday night like I am be thankful you are able to.
I know I have written about this subject before but need to say it’s so worth repeating. My Son was enjoying the day snowboarding at one of the bigger ski area’s that him and his friends never had been too so I was happy he was doing one of the many things he enjoys. My Daughter had a later shift in the day for work so we decided to enjoy a relaxing lunch at our favorite place to eat, Panera the best I had their zesty creamy tomato soup and grilled cheese she had a chicken soup and macaroni and cheese …yes very simple and yes we could of made that at home hmm …maybe but not as good as them and the atmosphere is so pleasant and relaxing even when it is busy and today was one of those day but what do you expect when something is good people go there. so we took our time and enjoyed . love the simplicity of this to some this would be nothing but to me its just who I am simple I wish more people could just sit back take in their surroundings like I saw today people chatting away smiling or reading a book as they enjoyed their meal. life should be happy and enjoyable and not stressed and rushed and full of judgmental opinions and anger shall I go on ? …yes I know I’m asking too much but can we at least try. I know life is full of all kinds of ways just seems we need to enjoy the life we are given as a gift.
