I love being on my porch, swinging on my two seater with Hunny by my side. I will just sit and watch the trees dance with the wind. I laugh when I see squirrels chase each other up the trees. I hear the birds sing. I look up and I wonder what it would be like if I could sit on a cloud. My little piece of nature is full of love.
I have a small raised garden that my family made me last year. I can sit and that’s awesome. I planted tomatoes, jalapeños and herbs. I thought that I would never be able to plant again because of my health problems. The love of my family made it possible for me to do something again that I thought was lost to me forever.
I’m sitting and reading a book that takes me to a different place and a different time. I get lost in the pages and I completely forget about my world for a while. My little bit of adventure. I love my reading nook and my small library.
I’m at church and I look all around me and I feel like I’m home. I look around and see many familiar faces that are my friends. I feel like we are a small family that cares and supports each other. I will have tears of joy because I feel blessed to be here. Love fills the air here and it surrounds me and fills me with love.
I’m having a hard day because it’s filled with physical and mental pain. My family helps me with the things that I cannot do anymore. They take care of me because I can’t take care of them the way I used to. My family loves me.
I think of my life. I love all that is around me. All that is around loves me back.
I’m sorry for your physical and mental pain , Rita. The love from your family and their active presence in your life (TLC) is testimony that you were a giving mother and a strong influence in their life. I’m so glad you have the perspective to appreciate them, especially in your current condition.
