Welcome to my little garden of vegetables we got onions, carrots and more to come.

spring is coming and so will my fresh veggies like my favorite corn on a cob.

So many things I could mix up for you and make it last all week so you never get bored with my meals.

So many yummy healthy things to eat that I won’t look your way twice when I make something sweet just for you.

I hope you enjoy my little display and that you come back again soon.

Hey my friend it’s been a long time since we talked and I just have so much to tell you.

I felt like if I don’t tell you now I won’t be able too because my time is very limited right now and I know that you always give me positive vibes.

You lift me up with the joy of your light that shines out of you, these moment are so few now but I know that when we talk it will be good.

All it takes is one thought and you are on my mind and then I’m forced to knowledge that things have changed.

And right before I blow to make a wish like I used to do when I was a child, I wonder what I really need right now.

Is it protection or love or both and what if I waste this wish will I get another chance to make another good one before things really change.

I want to wish that I have more time to really enjoy the peace I needed in my life right now.

But, back to reality I have to go and I know that life can be good and then the world throws me a curve ball.

And everything so dear becomes so much clearer than I thought was possible.

Where to go and what to do keeps running through my mind now that it’s all laid out on the table.

The truth and the lies!

Eyes closed

I stand with my eyes close and just breathed in this moment of peace

the only moment I seem to be able to get these days.

I know that I may just fall apart the moment I open my eyes and so I’m holding on to the hope that I don’t have to open it anytime soon.

I know that I’ve held it all inside and just kept moving because that’s what they needed from me but right now I truly can’t move.

I’m paralyzed to this spot with my eyes closed for I fear they will keep using me until I have no energy left and I will be ruined and then who will want me.

I know the truth and as I stand here picturing the sweet moments when I would get a taste of freedom again.

The moment that my feet step out that door and I run for as long as I can keep going and I don’t stop even as I hear my voice being called over and over again.

On Top

100 Week Wednesday: Week 61

On top of one of the tallest building and for the first time I feel like the things that seem so big in my life aren’t that big at all. 

Nothing is going to pull me down anymore for I have been to the top and no matter how far I fall nothing can truly bring me down again. 

I am where I’m suppose to be when it comes to my growth personally and now physically I feel so tore down that I just can’t get up and do the things I used to do.

I’m riding the wave of a lifetime, I’m so peaceful and happy right now as I focus on making sure I make it out of this tunnel. 

I never thought I’d make it this far and my talent be more than a hobby to me and to have all the people I love watching me and supporting me too. 

The sun shines down on me and I feel free for the first time im my life and that’s why I love being out in the water for I feel like nothing but, doing what I love in this moment matters to me.

I said I wouldn’t leave you this time as I head off on my next adventure and so here we are with you in my bag. 

And a long walk ahead of us to a place that will hopefully be fun for the both of us, no worries I will look out for you as you will look out for me. 

Together we are comfortable and happy and I know as long as I have you to cuddle with and find new things to discover there will be nothing but good times when were together in the end.
