To say

I’m not excited is a understatement

as I can barely content my joy and happiness.

I know that things are slowly coming to an end.

I know that lately things have not been going our way

and as we continue to struggle and feel like we will never get through this pain.

The energy is low and the ability to get it all done on time is just not possible right now but here we are pushing on as if we have nothing to lose.

We are trying our best to make things right but right now our luck is not on our side.

It’s like trying to pull out that tooth that you screw is loss but won’t move a muscle as you try to loosen it up but end up with it still in your mouth until you decide you want to eat that piece of hard candy.

And it falls out like nothing could have stopped it from finding a place under your pillow and you wake up to money in it’s place.

You know now that those little things felt so great but now that your older the falling out of teeth isn’t something you want or need.

Week 202 of Three Line Tales

cold and snowy night I walk  alone on my way home in hoping to find it warm enough.

It’s been a long day and I’m so ready to experience so much more right now as I get through the bad weather and enjoy the holidays.

I know the count down to Christmas is getting so close to the end, just one more week of work and two days and we will be all Christmas out.

The mess

is all around me and I realize that I’m not getting enough time to breathe

and so the stress is becoming too much and I just can’t handle it anymore.

I don’t want to go back but I do everyday and there is just always one or two people who cause a scene and it’s like your doing your best.

But you go home and when the calm of the storm has finally around you, you break down because you have had to be so strong all day long and you can’t take it anymore.

You have cracker and nothing is going to help except for going to sleep for all your troubles of the day melt away when you put your head on that pillow and sleep the pain away.

Every year

for Christmas a new ornament goes on the true to old to those that are old and full of memories.

As we start to share the new ones we have received for the year.

For Christmas is a great time of year to gather with the ones you love and just really enjoy some time together.

To not stress out about things that don’t matter and just decorate and drink something sweet and eat something sweet too.

And take the  time to start thinking about what you will do next year .

For once Christmas is over it’s only a few days later that the year is over and all those things that happened will be gone and all the new things will be happening before you know.

And having a plan sometimes is helpful but we never know when our time is up and to be able to do what we want now goes a long way in the end.

Of what you have planned and then for what God has in store for you at the end of the day.

On such

a cold day out

All I think of is a cup of Apple cider would be nice.

But, I have to wait for hours until I can touch something hot to my lips again.

Herewith the cold, bowing at me as I have to keep opening the window and all I wish I had something tasty to drink and to eat.

But, with no luck insight after 10 long hours, I finally have my hot drink insight with no seconds left to spare.

With my tummy now warm I’m now ready for bed.

Tonight

 Brought up old memories and as I replay the last words I heard from you in person.

I wish I had reacted differently and maybe then I wouldn’t be missing you so much now.

 And now so much time has passed by and your name seems to always be on my tongue.

So I reach out and I know this time too much time has passed.

And now it’s time to let you go and walk away knowing if your man up to say what you wanted then maybe things would be different.

But I’m not going to keep living in the what-if anymore.
