The night is dark is as as my thoughts no moon to lightened up this darkness. Yet shadows appear like a web in my mind an endless creation of string interlocked together. creating a beautiful web. If only my thoughts were as beautiful. Shadows of long ago to the presence spinning through my mind so many memories good, bad. I walk through this web of darkness pulling down each string as I pass. What. Who am I looking for is it me is it you? Please tell me help me through these shadows. A shadow appears and there you are or is it me? Where are the answers are they hidden in these dark shadows and once I find them will it be light again.
I want you when the dark clouds come in to lift me up, and when the sun is shining on us I want to share it’s warmth with you.
It’s only Tuesday but feels like Friday .. this week is moving so slow. The next two days is dealing with vehicles going into the garage I am not looking forward to. My daughter wants me to go with her to our local garage for her car … I told her it’s easy enough she replies your so social they love you there you talk away with them . So I will be basically going to remind them what they need to check meanwhile will sit at the convenient store next to it and enjoy a coffee. Then Thurs other half’s truck that goes in ,that’s a drop off but then need to go back to get it. The errand I do not like to do. Well enough of that … anyways it’s been pretty quiet around here nature wise. I think the wildlife is hiding in the shade to stay cool. Over the weekend we did have a coyote in the yard . At first when we looked out we thought it was a dog. Okay I thought it was . My daughter looks at me and said that is no dog . Credits to her for trying to get a picture of him. Any move we made he looked towards us. So she just kept snapping pictures . The pics will give you an idea of this guy . Defiantly pretty and the biggest one we have seen in awhile . Im wondering if this is why we are not seeing our fox that comes around every evening. I hope that is the only reason.
Rain coming in Wed and Thurs cannot wait we really need it. The grass is burning and the rivers are looking a bit to low. The rain will be welcoming. Along with it warmer temps looking like the weekend will be over a 100 and humid. The Weathermen are warning the dew point will be at dangerous levels… a good time to read my book. Every-time I pick up my book I’m interrupted by my other half turning on a movie and asking me to watch with him or it’s look ..oh did you see that . Or my daughter wanting to talk and once we get talking we could talk all night . My son is fine he just sits quietly as he goes through his phone . Sometimes quiet . I can see him out of the corner of my eye making funny faces and laughing… the world of Snapchat. For the life of me I can not figure that out and I guess I really do not need to. Well it’s 8:00 at night and I’m noticing it’s getting a bit darker out earlier each night. Where did this summer go? I quess its time to read some blogs and then get some sleep. Night everyone.
There is nothing better then the feeling you get when writing a letter . Somethings shouldn’t .. must not become the thing of the past. It’s such a beautiful , peaceful feeling when the words flow from the pen in your hands . Your fingers writing out the words you hope makes someone’s day ..brings a smile to their face or a laugh to their ears .It can be a random topic of silliness or a encouraging message . And yes it can at times be sad so a comforting word or two to get them through..but I only hope it’s always good. It can be a long turning of pages or just one page it does not matter how long or short it’s the words that matter and touch their heart and soul. Write a letter sometime , give it a try and see how it makes you and that special person who is receiving it makes them feel. ❤️
It’s the coldest night in a while . As I write this I’m under my covers . Earlier the wind was blowing so bad it was making a roaring sound ,all we could hear as we watched the nightly news .. which why we watch it I do not know , nothing good the world is not in a good place . The chaos in the politic world is crazy.. but that is all I’m saying , I do not like to talk politics.
Today was a quiet day I’m going to adopt this word quiet I say quiet a lot . 🙄 but quiet is my world for the most part … and yes tonight it’s quiet as well . It’s okay though because soon my son will be home well two months but soon . So even though for the most part his friends will be still at college and he will be working and doing The National Guard his music will echo through the house once in awhile when he’s home. My daughter is constantly on the run whether she is at work or with her boyfriend or friends so I do not see her much . Even though she is telling me she is so tired and is ready to just rest …. oh to be young. I know I’m just gibbering but thinking of someone who is flying back to College tonight to Ireland and her plane has been delayed 2 hrs and it’s late as it is when she’s flying out. Poor thing . So I know I’m rambling.. I guess it’s time to get off here and try to sleep. Goodnight everyone.
As your laying in bed and the silence of the house around you is deafening .. as your finishing your prayers . You hear the distant sound of a trains whistle echo through the darkness of the night . It’s a lonely but comforting sound as you pull the covers up settling under them a bit more you drift slowly off to sleep.
I’ve realized I skipped a day of posting . Yesterday was a amazing happy day. Well all days are pretty good but this one was exceptionally happy. Finally heard from our Son since arriving in Missouri on base last week . He called to let me know his address and was finally heading to the Basic Training unit… yes took a bit I guess quite a process. He said he sent me several letters in the mail and if I received them ? As of yesterday I hadn’t but at least I heard his voice he sounded good but was persistent on my checking the mail .We got off the phone adding he wouldn’t be able to call for two weeks but send him letters .
Today I woke drank my cup of coffee did a bit of things around the house but was anxious to get to the post office to check for mail. The results were 4 letters all from my Son .. the thoughts, questions went through my mind as I drove home wondering why so many and what I would find in them . I arrived home settled in cozied up in my chair and started reading he went by 1st letter then 2nd letter so on.. I read and my heart felt every word I won’t say what he wrote .. somethings are personal . Let’s say a lot of adapting .. adjusting going on for him but as I got to the last letter #4 he was doing better. Things looked brighter . Then my wandering mind thought what would I right ? I know be uplifting encouraging words . But what for excitement he knows it’s not that exciting . But then again he was missing home .. so home it was ..now I can’t remember the last time I actually wrote a handwritten letter but once I got going the words flowed as did my fingers and within seconds I had filled a page . Writing felt so good . So refreshing then typing on a keyboard or tapping on a phone. Words just filled the page. There was seriousness and humor . It was just unbelievable I ended up with a two page letter for him was it exciting .? Couldn’t say but honest and straight from the heart it was . I folded it up and placed it in an envelope and drove back to the post office with in 15mins of it closing to get a stamp for it and mail it . I wanted him to have a letter on its to him to look forward to.
I’m thinking it has me wanting to start a journal again like back in the day when I had so many journals filled with thoughts ..dreams life . For now though I ll just keep the letter flowing he wants them needs them . I am so proud of him . And proud of myself for not over thinking and just letting go and just did what I needed he needed . Now I’m going to get off read my book and then say my prayers before bed . Good night everyone.
