Giving And Receiving

It’s true givers receive too.

I feed the birds

and they give me pleasure.

I give the kids space

and I get a break from chatter.

I offer Knox a treat

and I get licks and tail wags.


The Constancy of Change

When my world was shaken

by a sudden, unexpected happening,

I steadied myself by looking outward

at the ever-shifting patterns

created by clouds and sun.

Though not sudden or abrupt,

change was woven into

each moment here as well.


We All

We all have days when

we’re tugged and pulled

in many directions…and

we all know how good

it would feel to hear

a tender voice say,

“You just rest.

I’ll take care of that.”


To Each His Own

We’re all story tellers

even if we don’t know it.

What’s in your repertoire –

high drama, comedy, mystery,

tragedy, historical fiction, or true romance?
