Wisdom

The older I become the more

I realize that I am still learning

Some things I learn are not

what I expected …

But …

Necessary nonetheless

 

In the past few months

I realized that friends are

nice to have

But …

they are not a necessity

Acquaintances are more

realistic than friends

I have never had an

acquaintance stab me

in the back

Never has an acquaintance

deliberately hurt me

My acquaintances have been

loyal, respectful, caring, and

take time for me when friends

rarely if ever have done

 

So …

in  my old age the wisdom

of experience has given me

the realization that I will

never become close friends

with another person again

I will seek out and maintain

my acquaintances who

enrich my life like no others …

SHOES!

SHOES

I can count the number of

friends mostly

on my two hands

But …

my shoes are a different story

 

I have always loved shoes

All types of shoes

From the time I could walk

until now I have collected them

From plain to fancy flip-flops

High heels of every style

To Chuck Taylor’s in all colors

which are my current favorite

to collect and wear

 

In reality …

Shoes have always been

much more loyal than

any of my friends …

Abundance

Abundance

Abundance…

So important in life

to realize abundance

has many different

meanings

 

Most immediately think

of financial abundance…

However…

that is meaningless

if there is no other

type of abundance in

life…

love…

family…

friends…

 

Open yourself to the

Universe and

Abundance will

find YOU…

Sorting People

 

A new year and time once

again to re-evaluate my life

 

Friends come and go

just like clothes that

get pushed to the back

of a closet

Forgotten…

 

Like those clothes

Friends who have

forgotten me will

be sorted…

re-evaluated…

placed in piles…

Over…

Maybe…

Keep…

 

Like those clothes

there are friends

who only come around

when they want something…

when no one else is

available…

they make the

‘OVER’ pile

 

Unless…

 

They can prove to me

a reason to give them

another chance

Then perhaps they

may qualify for the

‘MAYBE’ pile

 

Those in the ‘KEEP’ pile

still require re-evaluation

they can easily be

re-assigned

 

I take my friendships

seriously, but I don’t

believe in wasting my

time on sometime…

part-time…

people

Grateful…

Sometimes less is more…
Old friends have a
conversation shorthand
that at times carries
more meaning than
a long conversation
 
November is a time
of thanksgiving…
a time for gratitude…
Long time friends and
those friendships are
what I am most 
grateful and honor
during this time
 
Gratitude…

Reconnect

Life has a way of
bringing the past 
to life
 
Just when we 
least expect it
people move back
in and things are
as they were before
 
Never give up an
opportunity to
Reconnect…
 
You may not know
the reason, but
let things be

There are many people
in my life
 
Family first …
Always
 
A multitude of friends…
people in my life
I can always…
And…
Do…
Count on when needed
 
But…
There are those 
And…
They are few
Who are dear to me
Those I love
So Unconditionally…
That…
No other word
can be given them
Except…

Sleeping Candy

Sleeping Candy

He had a very special
jar filled with old
fashioned sugar
stick candy
 
Mixed flavors in
green, yellow, and pink
the soft melty kind
 
Sleeping Candy
he called it
My favorite was
yellow – lemony
 
He gave a piece
each night to
his grandchildren
when they
visited.
 
I was just the
little girl from
across the road
but…
I always got
one too
 
He was more than 
my neighbor…
He was the
grandfather I 
didn’t have

Friends First

Friends First

They were star-crossed lovers

Always in the wrong place

at the wrong time

Longing…

Lust…

Anticipation…

Frustration…

He vowed to never lose her

They had been friends first

Now…

Unrequited

Love
