When the Sunshine Awakens

20190507_122103

I love when the sunshine awakens on my pillow,

nuzzling closer

whispering her dreams,

I hold on to each

sacred moment,

quietly thankful,

for my most sacred treasure

and the light

of her radiant smile.

Afternoon Tea

20190915_123223

We were at the gallery, during afternoon tea,

she sat across from me when I got lost in her eyes….

oceans never ending.

She was the sun radiant

as she smiled,

and whispered, “I love you!”

Yep, I was lost, for sure….

she always amazes me so…..

The Best Gift

20171209_181026

He was out shopping from store to store and found some ear rings for her. The sounds of the season filtered

through the speakers of the mall, and yet something didn’t feel right. She had barely survived the transplant

and all he had to give her was, ear rings? It had been such a horrible year, he needed to give her something special,

but he just didn’t know what. He fought through the crowds with such a small gift, until he finally

made it back to the car, frustrated. He was almost in tears as he whispered into the dark, “God I need something special this year…..”

And then it came suddenly, struck him really, he would write her a poem!

He would pour out his heart. That’s all he ever really had, anyway.

They both cried when she tore the paper, opening the gift on Christmas Day, tucked into a wooden frame.

To this day it is mounted proudly on the wall

next to her bed. “The best gift ever…..” she said.

He had given his heart once again.

Welcome Home

20171217_221424

After working the night shift one morning, on the long drive home, he noticed the temperature on his car,

the thermometer was continuing to drop, 2 degrees…..down to 1……would it drop to 0?

He watched the road carefully, and the thermometer, trying to stay awake. Suddenly….there it was….0 degrees!

He celebrated with a few shouts….he had never seen 0 degrees before.

As he pulled into the driveway, he noticed she had left the Christmas lights on, around the front windows.

He stopped for a second staring at the wreath on the front door. It was Christmas finally. He walked up thinking.

Would she still be sick, laid up in bed? How far down would the infection take her?

He did love her so incredibly much it was beyond words really.

He decided to stop worrying about her dying, pushed the fear aside and turned the key……in the door…..

Seeing the Good

“We should not judge another person’s story, by the chapter we walk in on.”

Caralyn, from beautybeyondbones.

Too often we judge people, don’t we? with only knowing a small piece of the story.

And for that person it can be absolutely devastating. Some people don’t come back from that type of judgment.

The holiday season is a great time to see the good in people. We can spread a little more joy and love that way!

Let’s have a great holiday season, by not judging others.

Note: Please check out Caralyn’s blog, beautybeyondbones. She has an amazing story of overcoming an eating disorder.

Peace.
