“Love is what’s in the room with you
at Christmas
if you stop opening presents and listen.”
Bobby-age 7

Are you as smart as this seven year old?

I think Bobby is exceptional not just as a seven year old kid but as a person in general. Opening Christmas gifts can be a time of chaos with all the noise and excitement especially with  kids in the room. It is rare that adults stop tearing at the wrappings of gifts to listen and almost unimaginable for kids. If you have someone (of any age) around like Bobby you have been given a great gift.

Past, present, future…

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #17

challenge-17

  1. My past–I was rebellious and angry and afraid.
  2. My present–I am at peace with myself and content with little fear.
  3. My future–I hope to continue as I am, growing in wisdom and love fearlessly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The sharp fragmented pieces wildly scattered about
have gathered as soft feathers to fill this soul
preparing it to soar in the heavens.

What I am thinking…

My Chatter at the Tuesday Cafe
is about something that is on my mind
and the poem I wrote for In Other Words
says what I am thinking.

It is Christmas time
Days of silly craziness
Nothing heavenly
In all this insane madness
Look for the blessings holy

Q&Q

“If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as another character…
Would you slow down? Or speed up?”
Chuck Palahniuk

Hmm, I don’t know. There was a time I would have said speed up. Now I like where and who I am so I don’t think I want it to speed up. As for slowing down…maybe, for now, that would be okay but I am getting old(er) and depending on how that goes I might change my mind. Coming back as another character? Only if I get to choose the role.

What about you?

Shopping…

My Tuesday Chatter is an In Other Words story.

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
using the word, shopping.

groceries-1343147_640

She brought all the bags in and dropped them on the table. The stores were so busy it took hours of shopping to get everything she needed for the family dinner on Sunday. She was tired and looking forward to a cup of tea and a nap but first, the bags must be emptied and all the fixins sorted and put away before she could rest.  She was almost done with all the bags empty and the kitchen neat and tidy…but wait. Oh, no, she forgot the ham!

Can you relate to this? I sure can.
Can’t count the number of times
I have come home from the grocery store
without the one thing I went to the store to get.
