{November 17, 2013}   In Love!

November 16, 2013, 10:05 pm– My brother and his wife welcomed their first child, named after my brother. Junior is seven pounds, two ounces and twenty inches long. I’m exploding with joy! I have not seen him yet but I will go to the hospital in the morning to see them.


{March 4, 2012}   *~Dreaming Serenity~*

As calm as the surface of a pond
on a stale summer day.
Like the warmth from the sun
after a long, hard winter.
As relaxed as a newborn
sleeping on her mother’s chest.

Oh, how coveted are these feelings
Where competition morphs into partnerships
Where the raging rivers dwindle into streams
Ah, the joy of watching storm clouds part
Where the blue skies caress the horizon
Where couples walk hand-in-hand, happy, free
Oh, how I dream of days filled with joy
Where all of my worries are swept away
Where Angels sing out as I walk the path
Ah, the comforts of believing in a better tomorrow
Where the warmth of the sun will caress my soul
Where I will walk hand-in-hand
With the woman that I love, who loves me…
