The Mountains …


The mountains in the Spring

seem to bring

new life all around

happy sounds

we walk along

love so strong

we belong

together forever

and ever

always and after

with much laughter

We took a bold step

some might say

but hey

we did it with care

not on a dare

so now we share

a trust and love so deep

it will keep

It’s National Caffeine Awareness Month


Another interesting thing for the month of March, isn’t it? I was quite impressed with the talk of caffeine. On one hand does it mean we should be aware of what caffeinated beverages we are drinking? Is it telling us to lay off caffeine all together? Heavens no, and let’s do perish that thought entirely is what I say! I love my coffee, lattes, etc. just way too much for such foolishness. Regular tea has almost as much caffeine in it as coffee.

Sorry to report the Twinnie’s much loved chai tea has caffeine in it, too. I can’t say much bad on the chai tea subject, I am really starting to love it more each day. First it started because Autumn so wanted me to try it…Now, it’s really grown on me! I actually do drink a mug or two a day now. Oh  no more caffeine for me! As far as coffee I really do hold it down to 2-3 cups a day most of the time. Oh no, even more caffeine! How much am I up to anyway?!

Caffeinated sodas, they have quite a bit, too and I don’t drink the stuff personally. Please don’t be offended by that statement any kind readers that like it and drink it. Remember we all like different things! I won’t even get into the aspartame thing in the diet sodas, it’s not too good for anybody…But again, not my business to preach. If anyone wants to check it out, it might be a good idea is all will say. Chocolate has some caffeine in it…Sorry, I am not giving up my chocolate either. Common sense tells me the month of National Caffeine Awareness means just that. Just be aware, try to use caffeine wisely I would think. You know, practice moderation! 🙂

Do any of you kind readers drink (or eat) too much caffeine? Please do feel free to share! The only thing in the caffeine category I would be afraid to over do is Red Bull or any of those drinks. That is because of the bad things that can happen to you from abusing it. I have read some bad things on those drinks, again I am not really doing any preaching…Look it up for yourselves please if you disagree. Just keep in mind, my opinions are “my humble opinion only.” 🙂

I honestly think the month of March being National Awareness of Caffeine is a good thing. We can all look at our own use of caffeine and take it from there…Just be aware. Awareness is always a very smart thing I think, how about anybody else? Any of you kind readers have any thoughts on this subject? Sharing is always fun I say! 🙂 🙂

The Beach


Laughter on the beach

well within our reach

as we run along the sand

hand in hand

stopping here and there

without even a care

the sun sets

we almost forget

to turn and see the birds flying so high

against the lovely sky

the beach is where we love to be

so many sights to see

wave after wave at night

it’s a magical sight

here is where we learned our love was true

on the beach is where we say I do …

Shadows Dance


Our shadows dance along the wall

as the music calls

what a lovely dance

part of our romance

the moon joins in

to watch us spin

shining bright

what a night

the music soars above

an echo of our love

life can be such fun, you know

just also keep your mind open to grow

each day is a new chance

and a new dance

so make is count and live

and never give

less than your best

sort of a test

but reach for the stars

maybe ever mars

you never know, it’s time to fly

you never know until you try …

Love is Forever


Love is forever and ever

nothing can sever

the bond we share

nothing would dare

our love is too strong

we belong

with each other

never another

my darling man and me

can clearly see

the path before us twists and turns

so much to learn

we got it right

there is lots of light

and love

above

yes, love is forever it seems

it means

the future beckons and calls

yet we won’t fall

we hold on tight

to our love so right …

Love Rocks


It really does rock and roll

never taking a toll

Happiness works

and will not hurt

Love so true

I love you

a heart so strong

together we belong

take my hand, as we go

we truly know

the way for sure

our love is pure

Did you ever have a clue

we’d say I do?

love rocks the land

take a stand

and believe in love forevermore

We do, believe us, it’s not a bore …

Choose love and joy everyday


Choose them everyday

that’s what I say

it’s the best way

love and joy you live

and give

all you can, you see

the loving way to be

joy brings love and hope

why lose the chance?

take a second glance

the one’s you notice that shine

his and mine

are so divine

you get what you give

so live, live, live!!

you’ll reap what you sow

you’ll always know

that you’re on the right track

never look back …

An Ocean View …


An ocean view

a day with you

my darling man

you always can

make me see

the beauty that can be

all around

as we are homeward bound

I find the sea a lovely sight

day or night

it’s always right

to say, it’s the best

no matter where we are

near or far

we love the land

and find love and stand

happy and strong

right not wrong

we belong

to you and me

and me and you

so very true

and the ocean so blue

the birds that fly

high in the sky

we see them go by

take my hand

my forever man …

Quotes from Mother Teresa


I have always admired Mother Teresa and been drawn to her life, her work, her endless giving and most of all her non stop loving of people. She was a very wise person and she had a lot to share and say. I was browsing through some of her quotes for my own benefit and inspiration. Then it occurred to me that maybe you kind readers would like to see some of her quotes. I made a list of 10 that were beautiful and do need sharing. I am hoping you will enjoy them and feel as inspired as I do by her! 🙂
1.Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
2.Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
3. I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
4.We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
5.If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
6.We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
7.Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
8.I found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurts only love.
9.Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody. I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
10.We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature–trees, flowers, grass–grows in silence; See the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls.
