I come over to your house for a meal and I still you running around and everywhere I look I see dirty pans.

And all the food you have cooked look so good but, I know you will be tired later and decide to help you clean up well the rest of the guest sit around and chat.

As you finish up you notice there isn’t one single pot left dirty and you smile at me and I see how grateful you are and I hug you and thank you for the meal we’re about to eat.

It’s cold out here today but, I just needed a moment to myself and standing out in front of the ocean just always calms me. 

My life lately seems like the rough tides that are coming in and no matter how much I try to deal with everything and try to be the bigger person some how it always comes back to knock me down. 

I can’t let you drag me down and around like those rough waves would do if I try to go out there right now. I won’t be ignored and knocked down when I  decide to stand up for myself and live a calmer path.

Daily Prompt: Gingerly

She had to be gingerly as she walked up the stairs so late after a long night at work.

she was just glad to getting to bed for she just didn’t think her body could go any farther on the amount of energy she had been using  up the last couple of days.

She had to be quiet as she came through the door for her roommate was probably already asleep.

She couldn’t remember a night that she wasn’t so exhausted that she didn’t remember when she fell asleep.

She just got ready for bed and soon was passed out and in the morning she would be well rested but the long days of work would soon rob her of her energy.

Days off became shorter and work became longer and she just wanted to breath without being at the same place over and over again.

Even though she liked her job she needed time away from all the stress.

Daily Prompt: Simmer

The water seems to slowly simmer as she waits for it to boil

so she can put in the rest of the food that will complete her meal.

But her patience is really low with a long day at work, she tries to will the water to speed up for she was getting more sleepy by the minute.

She need to eat and then head to bed and he was demanding and all she wanted was a good night of sleep and no stress because she had a lot on the table and she just didn’t know if she could get it done.

The water was not bubbling up enough for her to add the noodles, she wished it didn’t take this long to boil water.

And then she notices she never turned it up and it was all her fault and now she was going to be able to just relax and not stress.

Bright lights shine append my first and I stand strong and tall as the show goes on and I’m so glad I got my shades on for it would have been blinding with all the different lights coming on and all as the show goes on.

I see others trying their best to not look directly into the lights as you watch the greatest moment unfold around you. As the fog begins to roll back to the back row.

You finally see everything so clearly and you start to record everything because you don’t want to forget this moment for years from now your life may not be as adventures as it is now in this moment.
