Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving is a time to express our gratitude for all the blessings in our lives. Many of us spend the day with our family and friends; however, we also often spend hours, minutes, and seconds with strangers. Don’t forget to thank the tired, yet upbeat, cashiers, servers, customer service agents, and more…basically everyone you may come in contact with on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. K? Thanks! ;D

Reluctant to Walk

Pinwheels represent, most commonly, the act of turning one’s luck around; however, they also represent childhood innocence, unseen energy, wish fulfillment and transformation, depending on where one looks. Reluctance to WalkWhere you look is up to you.

Heavy

I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Why is everything so heavy
I haven’t blogged as much as I used to. In the past, I’ve used my blog as a journal. Lately, I’ve been afraid to do that. Instead of leaving it in, I’m letting it out. So, here goes.
1. I was blindsided and now I am vulnerable.

2. I feel like I’m under a microscope and bound to fail.
3. My sweet pups Loki has heart disease and I am devestated.
4. My right elbow is killing me but I don’t even play tennis or golf.
5. I am soooo tired and just want to binge on Netflix/Amazon/DirectTV.
