FFI week 59…

Friendly Fill-Ins, week 59

  1. A recurring dream I have is that I am in a room with a lot of people, some I know and some I don’t know, who are trying to make me agree with them.  I won’t argue with them I just want them to accept that my thoughts are different than theirs. It makes me sad.
    2. Turn obstacles into a way to get where you want to be.

3. The heat and humidity that never really bothered me before is driving me crazy!

Celebrating The Small Things


Have you ever noticed how sometimes the most irritating and aggravating things can end up being good things?  This week has been one of those weeks filled with frustration. It started on Monday and has continued until today and will probably continue for awhile.  As crazy as it sounds the bother of the week has made me see how easy and pleasant my life is and I am grateful.  It also made me aware that my temper needs some discipline and patience doesn’t happen without thought.  Being reminded of these things was good, not fun but good.

This week was not what I like but just what I needed.
Sometimes we need a little trouble to keep us humble.
So, I celebrate all the small things I take for granted.

The Field

Not long ago this field was filled with laughing children chasing after a ball hoping for a goal for their team.  Then one day near the end of a game all of them were gone, just gone without a trace.  Now we come to the empty field of green grass feeling scared and angry, wondering where they are and why they disappeared and…we grieve.

My bear and me…


Tuesday Chatter at the Cafe
In Other Words 
a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
using the word bear.


I had a really bad dream last night.
It was awful, and so
to Teddy, I held on tight
And I did not let go
There’s nothing my bear and me can’t fight!
