fireflies




if stella hadn't disappeared,
around the house last night,
i would have missed the fireflies,
twinkling so bright.

i could have gotten mad at her,
and just gone back inside,
instead i followed curiously,
and was happily surprised.

when things are out of our control,
just smile and let them go,
though something might seem negative,
we never really know.

sometimes when things go wrong,
other things go right,
and bring you happy gifts,
like fireflies at night.

beauty true

photo overlay from Cottage Arts

outer beauty fades,
while inner beauty grows,
it's not enhanced by makeup,
or covered up by clothes.

it's not recognized in passing,
it's not seen from afar,
you will only truly see it,
by knowing someone's heart.

to see another's beauty,
you must know her soul,
that's where you will discover,
her beauty true, doth grow.

The Furminator - First brushing. Troy's on the left, Stella's on the right. Second brushing I got that much more out of Troy and about half out of Stella.

i would


if you had a blog, i would read it each day,

if you had a website, in my favorites you'd stay,

if you wrote a column, or published a book,

i'd tell all my friends, where to take a look.

if you were on facebook, i'd be your friend,

if you sold things online, my money i'd spend,

for all of these things, connect me to you,

you're a part of my heart, and i love what you do.

my how they have grown, they're in that awkward stage
between the fluff and feathers, before they come of age

wag your tail, it's wednesday


three hot dogs
stay where they are told
you know with all that fur
they wish that it was cold

to be Gentle

and Discover.

Oh, what a gift!

wag your tail, it's wednesday


wag your tail,
it's wednesday,
do a little dance,
smile your biggest smile,
take a little chance.

wag your tail,
it's wednesday,
go out for a walk,
get a little exercise,
call a friend and talk.

wag your tail,
it's wednesday,
make it really count,
life lived to the fullest,
that's what it's all about.
