So how should you live life?

Don’t have expectations that way you won’t be disappointed.

This is what I was told.

If you don’t get excited you won’t be let down.

In a world of let downs.

Its best to protect yourself.


But I can’t help myself.

I always get caught up in the excitement.

The anticipation

The hope.

Higher and higher I go.


Sometimes all is good and I get to fly.

Others I hit the deck hard.


So how should you live life?

Should we allow ourselves to be caught it the moment?

Or should we stay grounded so we don’t fall.

This is what my mind is pondering right now.

Yet a piece of poetry keeps rolling about in my mind.


    I hold it true, whate’er befall;

    I feel it, when I sorrow most;

    ‘Tis better to have loved and lost

    Than never to have loved at all.


Lord Tennyson. 



I guess I’ve answered my own question.


Fall – Five minute Friday


It’s hard work at times being a Mom.

Watching you journey in this world and trying so hard to protect you.

It was so much easier when you were little. Holding your hands and keeping you safe.

Now you are well on your way to becoming young women.

Wanting to explore further a field.

Wanting your own independence.

I have to stand back a little now.

Like a mother bird watching her chick spread his wings to fly.

I can only watch and pray over you.

I have to trust you to the one that’s loves you so much too.

Trust you to the teaching and truth your father and I gave to you.

Whatever you go though my sweet precious girls remember this.

I am always on your team.

I am always by your side.

Life will be full of twists and turns.

Heart moving movements along with heartbreaks.

Again I promise you this

If you ever fall, I will be there to help you up.
