Sunday Pause (Paws): Really, Take A Pause!

It’s Sunday! A time to kick back, relax, and reflect.

Many of you know about the loss of my sister. This has been a tough week, going to work, trying to act as if everything is fine. Our family has not had time for closure because we haven’t yet had the funeral. We plan to have it this week, maybe this will help a little.

I wrote a poem for today expressing some feelings I have been having through all of this and have heard other people express they felt when they lost a loved one. I hope you enjoy it.

THE WORLD DOESN’T STOP

The world is so busy
The world is so fast
Treating life like a race
How quickly time is passed

Then one day comes
When you receive a call
That one of your loved ones is gone
And now your heart takes a fall

Sunday Pause (Paws): Slow Dance

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the simple things in life.

This Sunday I would like to share a poem called “Slow Dance” written by a terminally ill young girl. It is absolutely beautiful and well said. A great reminder for us all!

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Read the rest of the poem and post here.

Happy Sunday! Remember to slow down and enjoy the day.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Cino Going Back to the Vet

It’s Sunday! This Sunday I wanted to ask if you’ll take a break from the busyness and once again say a prayer for Cino.

Some of you know that back in January I had to bring Cino in for an ultrasound. Here is the post if you haven’t read it: Sunday Pause (Paws): Prayers for Cino. This Tuesday she will be going in for her annual physical. But we will also be checking to see if there is any blood in her urine as there has been the last few times.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Google

The Tale of Google the Squirrel

This week’s tale is a fellow blogger’s post that I read and thought was so special, I knew it would be perfect for a Tuesday Tale.

The squirrel below was brought to Ron and his wife, Michelle, at only a few days old by some children who found her under a tree.

Ron & Michelle cared for this squirrel themselves and, as you can tell from the photo below, they did a wonderful job!

See the photos and the full post here.

This Tuesday’s Tale: Just Breathe

I planned a different tale this week, but I would like to keep my cat, Cino, as the center of my focus right now. This past week has been a very hard one. If you read my last post, Sunday Pause (Paws): Prayers for Cino, you know what is going on. If you haven’t, please do. So this Tuesday’s Tale is about Cino & I, when we met and what is going on now.

It has been a while since I have written a poem. I write them occasionally, mostly for family & friends. I have had so many emotions running through me this past week, a poem just felt appropriate.  So here goes…
