Confusion, Chaos, and Chocolate !

New year, I thought

Should be a breeze

Peace of mind

A fresh start

A visit to my favorite doctor

Whom I really really like

Might even  have a crush on him

Or is it a side effect

In a flash, all changed

Started at the front desk

Oh my

New staff

New insurance

No problem

Front desk girl grumbled

I see you are on your husband’s policy

I am not married, I retorted

Who is this husband, I asked

I cannot divulge, the fool responded

I insisted I need to know his name

Sorry, she repeated

HIPAA, HIPPO, HIPPY

Not so sure what I heard

Am I losing my mind

Or is it a side effect

Then whisked away

Routine blood test

Rough looking tech

Poking, probing aggressively

Enough, I said

I earned those chocolate truffles

Right there

Calling my name

In the cozy little break room

Between the lab and

Door to freedom

chaos

If I were to wish…..

To  have a wishbone

Cinderella said it best

” A dream is a wish our heart makes”

To have a backbone

Maya Angelou’s own words

” Poetry puts starch in your backbone so you can stand, so you can compose your life”

I must have a funny bone

 

life alert

 

 

I promise to….

Rise and shine

Never give up

Not give in

Look forward

Take a chance

Express hope

Live with faith

Follow the ray of light

Embrace changes

Build trust

Reflect on life

Face  fear

I think of you when…

I am lonely

I am a little bit scared

I sense you near

I  hear your soft voice

I am driving late at night

I see a yellow butterfly

I watch the clouds in the sky

I am sipping Muscat Canelli (your Sunday favorite)

I see outlines of angel wings in the dark night

I am missing you dearly

I know that

mom

Mom, I always knew how much you truly loved me💖

Keep Going!

When overtaken by doubt

Looked ahead

When hope faded

Looked further

When fear took hold

Looked within

When seized by exhaustion

Looked beyond

When touched by a miracle

Looked around

Lighted upon a sign

yes-you-can

Keep Going!

strong-enough

But I Look Forward!

Worries!
Who need them
What a waste of time

Fear!
Fleeing hope
Future on hold

Faith!
Facing life
Fearlessly

Guilt!
Glimpse into nothingness
Glance to emptiness

Looking forward!
Life journey
Longing toward freedom

So there!
I chose nothing but
To Look Forward

look-forward

Daughter!

Divine gift

Amazingly courageous

Unwavering faith

Graciously kind

Highly principled

Tenacious strength

Effortless love

Resolute determination

My daughter, Angelica, is the miracle I believe in.💖

(This miracle of mine is also quite a humorous girl. If you need more laughter in your life, please check out her funny blog, Comically Quirky!)

Just Like That!

Doing the same thing

Over and over

Feeling drained

Again and again

Setbacks

Here and there

Disillusions

Far and wide

Taking steps

Backward and forward

Same routine

Up and down

Enough of that!

To pursue

To achieve

To be in charge

To regain control

As easy as

Just like that!

just-lie-that

Aspire to Inspire!

Some people come and go in our lives.

Others come to stay.

Some people leave a mark in our lives.

Others leave a trail.

Most people just pass through.

There are those people though,

No matter where we are in life,

Inspire us to be what we are today.

Thank you, DAD!
