Sunday Pause (Paws): Buried In Snow

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the snow.

We have the whole day free
And oh the places we’ll go
Except we stepped out the door
And now we’re buried in snow

Happy Sunday!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Are You Ready?

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and watch some football (if you’re into it).

It’s Super Bowl Sunday so here is a poem for you.

Do you like the game?
Are you really into it?
Putting all things aside
And got a comfy spot to sit

Snacks & drinks are ready
Friends & family gathered near

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Those Gifts From God

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax and rap…yes I said rap! (Or just listen to a rap).

I wrote a poem not long ago
My niece said it read like a rap
She sees a new career in my future
Ehhh…I probably wouldn’t get one clap 🙂

But I do have a video of someone who can rap that I wanted to share with you. If this doesn’t show that animals are gifts from God then I don’t know what does.

Teaching Empathy Saves Lives

I‘m sure most of you have heard about the abduction of the Wisconsin girl, Jayme. As we’re finding out more & more about it all, it has been told that the man who abducted her had killed a dog and had an obsession with road kill. You see my passion for animals isn’t just about my love for animals, it’s something we should all be paying attention to. Research has proven when children show signs of no empathy for animals and harm them, they most likely are just “experimenting/testing” and will move on to humans. This is why I am so passionate about educating children (and everyone) about how important it is to “pay attention” and teach empathy, kindness, & respect to animals. It could just save a life!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Fun With Pics

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and let the artsy fartsy side come out.

Sometimes you just never know “what you want to be when you grow up.” I still really haven’t figured it out and I should be retiring in less than 20 years. A lot of my life I feel like I was just “surviving.” I always felt lost and unsure of myself. So I made some bad choices and went down the wrong path for a while. Basically I was just trying to pay the bills, fit in, and trying to be happy. But it was when I started paying attention to God that things started changing…I started changing. I’m still a “work in progress” and will be all of my days. No one is perfect. But I’m not just trying to survive anymore. I’m trying to “live”…really truly “live.” Because it isn’t just about what we “do” to pay the bills, it’s who we are and how we live.

I still haven’t figured out “what I want to be” to pay the bills but I have discovered that I enjoy being creative. My love for animals is nothing new.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Take It Easy

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take it easy.

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season as much as I did. It was so great to see family come home all the way from Norway to spend it with us.

I LOVE the holiday season and am always a little sad when it is over. I have been off work for a few weeks and am going back tomorrow. Like I saw on a Facebook post…I have to go back to “adulting.” Ugh.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Resolutions Are Not For Me

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and come up with new year resolutions…or not.

I‘ve never been one to make resolutions. I’ve actually never been one that got that excited about New Years in general. So we change one number on checks when we write the date…wait does anybody write checks anymore? So we’ll soon be another year older…wait unless you’re birthday is at the end of the year. So we’ll have another January, February, March, April…well you get the point.

I hope you enjoy the poem I wrote for this post.
