The Ring

I saw him at church. I knew that he was waiting for me, in the hall after the services. And I knew that he would be there. I knew it. I asked how he was doing. He said he was 'hopeful.' Hopeful, I thought.... He means he's hopeful that we will be together That when the time comes, and I've done my... Sign in to see full entry.

Sunshine Girl

Notes scattered round the house She can't contain herself And the sunshine within her 'Dear Brother, you are THE BEST!' 'Dear Mother, you are THE BEST!' Fourteen and still sweet and tender, unaffected by what the world would have her become. Flowers and sunshine and uplifting thoughts Adorn her tiny... Sign in to see full entry.

She's My Sister, Too

I bristled a bit as she walked into the room Gorgeous, tiny little brunette with arching eyebrows. She sat alone at the meeting. We wound up sitting next to her I gave her a brief, polite smile. Afterwards on my way out of the building I smiled at her again. She smiled back; hesitated, then stopped... Sign in to see full entry.

Wasted Days

Are days spent in melancholy Wasted days? Snuggling underneath the covers Pillow covering both ears Lounging around Thinking, processing, musing, daydreaming Maybe even a bit of praying And talking to yourself Or even singing to yourself? Have you really done nothing productive? Have you really not... Sign in to see full entry.

Dinner At the All You Can Eat

We walked into the buffet slim and trim trim and slim But the buttered shrimp and the marinated mushrooms and the crab ragoons and the sweet and hot soup and the spicy pork and the smoked chicken on these cool little skewers all beckoned to us again and again and again. And then the ice cream said... Sign in to see full entry.

Sisters in Suffering

I was walking with my children down the food court in the fancy mall with my tailored suit on highly polished black heels, freshly combed hair and newly applied make-up When your eyes met mine then darted downward. You with the mop and the supply bin on wheels I wish I could tell you that only two... Sign in to see full entry.

The Last Trick or Treat

I turned away from my Self today and turned my thoughts to her Helping her with her costume.... Is this the last year she'll wear one? Fourteen is probably the cut-off, after all So instead of thinking of me I'll think of her And her silly friend that she's so silly around (Those girls giggle... Sign in to see full entry.

Only Inches Away

I hear and feel him sitting up in the bed ready to start his day I want to touch him reassuringly let him know that I care that I will never stop loving him and so I reach out at the exact moment that he stands up out of reach. How many reassuring touches could he have had daily if he had paused... Sign in to see full entry.

Out Loud

This morning for the first time in so long I talked to You. Out Loud. I had the bedroom all to myself. And I timidly started out with the first thing that came to my heart. I was upset And I just wanted my Father to tell me Everything was going to be all right. I know that You heard me. Even though... Sign in to see full entry.

Remember Me

What will my children have to remember me by? Will they sit around and talk about how clean my countertops always were Or my spotless oven? Perhaps they will reminisce on how often the carpets were vaccuumed Or the baseboards that you could run your white glove along any day of the week and have it... Sign in to see full entry.
