Have a Peaceful Weekend

How long will I be prisoner to the emotions and sorrow I suffer each new day?

Do I even recognize we are in a new day?
How long will I have to feel the pain I am feeling, but not be able to share it with others.
Am I even feeling real pain?
How long will I have to look at others and try to place them where they belong in my head.
Should I even care at this point in my life?
What is my life?
How long will I enjoy the comfort of this bed I am in?
How long will I go on not really even knowing where I am?
I see my family.
I am here.
Is this it?

Please pray for me.
I think I remember I believe.

PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN FOR THOSE THAT SUFFER WITH DEMENTIA SYMPTOMS. THEY DO NOT ALWAYS SHOW IT, BUT THEY DO APPRECIATE YOUR LOVE, KINDNESS, AND SUPPORT.
THANK YOU.

I have been really busy writing away as a Master Editor for my friends at Everipedia.com. Have you created your page yet? What are you waiting for? Come on over! If you want a page, just ask! 🙂

Demented Mom

If you think that you will understand me one day soon, you will not.
If you think that you will find a magic pill that will cure me, you will not.
If you think that I am happy doing and saying what I am, I am not.
If you think I can understand your look of confusion now, I do not.
If you can just leave me alone to be in my own little new  world, I will be fine.
You are not welcomed.
You are not needed.
You are only there some of the time.
Most days, I just go along my merry way.
If I want to shout, I will.
If I want to try to get out of bed, I will.
If I want to spit out my food, I will.
If I do not want to take my medicine, it is my problem, not yours.
You can only do so much for those like me.
My body has already been invaded by the aliens that hate good mental health.
You can help by joining in the battle to fight this beast called dementia.
That would make me smile.

No matter what, just remember that I will always love you.

Thank you.

Your mother*

Mystic Eyes..poem

Really
You would like me to believe that?
What would be said of me?
What would alter in my being?
Who would I be looking at in the mirror?

I can not comply.
So be it.
I remain at peace.

FAMILY TIMES

It’s great to have family!

They’re amusing as Hell!

When we all get together,

all we do is YELL, YELL, YELL!

I am especially amused,

When the grandparents say,

” One day I’ll be dead and you’ll

be sorry you acted this way!”

Then the parents chime in

and say, “Shut up, that’s not nice!.”

I am ready to say something,

but I just ” stop ” and think twice!

Why bother, I figure

It all sounds the same,

I guess we have anxiety

and stress to blame!

But when the pleasant event is

all said and done,

We give each other hugs good-bye,

and say “THIS WAS FUN!”

You figure it out!

(A poem I wrote a while back that I thought would be great for the holidays.)

I will also be posting a LINK on:

I am at peace, are you really?

You found what brings you peace in life

So have I

Your idea of peace is rather strange to me

But it is YOUR idea and you are entitled

My idea brings me many hours of peace and satisfaction, yet you refuse to let me have them

You attack

You aggravate

You do your best to have me lose it

But it does not work

becaude I am at peace

I wish you REALLY were and did not imagine such

Oh well, I will not give up

I am not going anywhere

I am here

The truth is….

The truth is that nobody really knows what the heck the truth is. We listen to one story and then we figure it sounds pretty good, so it must be the truth. Then someone else comes along and has to screw things up by saying some things that made more sense than what the other person just said. I mean “Really!” I do not need more confusion in my life right now. I just want to get up in the morning, get my coffee, look at my schedule for the day, and move ahead. I am sure I will be watching the clock all day long just waiting for that moment when I can just go home, take a deep breath, and go put my “fat clothes” on! No more sticking in my stomach. No more smiling pretty. No more wondering how my hair looks. You know, just hanging out! I did I mention that5 exciting moment when us girls get to finally take off that annoying bra! Wow, the best! You girls out there understand! So, I guess what I am trying to say is that we just have to take the day for what it is and figure out from many directions presented to us, which way to go with our actions. I guess today is my day to just ramble on. Oh well, thanks for listening. Have a great weekend!

Miles to freedom

The miles to freedom never seem to want to end

The purpose they serve is to secure our fitness

What makes them the expert?

What makes them the judge?

That would be the choices that we make along the way.

The road is as long as you make it.

Accept the challenges.

Stay in the world of LIFE!

It’s ALWAYS Valentine’s day for me!

Even if you insist on being a brat,
I love you
Even if you are rude and arrogant,
I love you
Even if you decide not to acknowledge me,
I love you
No matter what the “even if” is
I LOVE YOU

So, come on
Join in the excitement
Join in the warmth
Join in the comfort
Join in the power of LOVE.

Believe it to be so
Portray your actions to confirm your belief
LIVE. LOVE.

Mother Teresa’s Anyway Poem…..

People are often unreasonable, illogical, centered; Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God; It was never between you and them anyway.

My brother shared this poem with us all on Christmas Day. I LOVED it and wanted to share it with all of you. Stay well and happy.

Madison Rising – The Star Spangled Banner …VIDEO*

This has got to be one of the coolest rock bands around. I hope you all appreciate this song as much as I do.No matter where you are from, FREEDOM is a peaceful feeling to be able to have. May you all find love and peace this Thanksgiving week.

Find the time.

Find the moment.

Discover the good.

Ignore the ugly.

Hug one another.

Laugh instead of crying.

Smile instead of frowning.

Value the memories made.

Hold them deep in your heart.

No one can take them away.

Believe in Yourself’
