surgery


she doesn't want to do this
and knowing that it's right
doesn't help the nerves
or take away the fright

there's not much i can say
and not much i can do
but simply stay beside her
as we see this hard time through

wag your tail, it's wednesday


my mom and troy just left me
and i was all alone
there wasn't any happy
in our happy home

so dad sent me to karen's
he thought that would be best
he was a little worried
that i might get depressed

karen's house is heaven
with lots of dogs and toys
'cuz being a dog sitter
is what karen enjoys

with toys and friends to play with
the time went really fast
but i'm now glad to say this
i am home at last

home is still the best place
it feels and smells just right
and the people i call family
are my heart's delight

Tresa Black's winning video will touch your heart

This is a touching story about making a scrapbook for Grandma. It also shows how easy it is to do with Studio J from Close To My Heart. I really love it and encourage you to take a look

Yes Photo


Yesterday, my mission in taking pictures was to take a picture of something that said Yes. This is my photo. Funny thing about it, I didn't say yes to the picture right away. It required pulling over on the side of the road. I knew it was the picture, but I drove right by. Obviously I turned around but why? Why didn't I just say Yes in the first place, in the moment. That is what I struggle with, saying Yes at the right moment, trusting it committing to it. Not letting opportunities pass by me (or me pass by them). It seems I need some exercises to build up these weak response muscles. Any ideas?

You're Exceedingly Significant

Another Yes Poem

God Says Yes To Me

by Kaylin Haught


I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic

and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don't paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I'm telling you is
Yes Yes Yes

Say Yes

Say Yes Today
Yes to Life
Yes to Love
Yes to others

Most of all

Say Yes to Yourself
Yes I am Beautiful
Yes I am of Value
Yes I have a Purpose

Yes I will
Be my true Self
Believe in my Self
Embrace my Self
and Love my Self

Say Yes!
not a small internal Yes
not a tiny whispered Yes
a confident strong Yes
Out Loud
Make sure you hear it and...
Believe it

Now - go out there and Be your True Self
The world needs You!

No Matter Where


even though we're in wyoming
and there's lots of room to roam
troy's favorite thing to do here
is his favorite thing at home

he has made friends with the horses
and chased some deer and geese
ran the fence with a new calf
and sniffed new smells on the breeze

but no matter what we do
nothing can compare
with a rubber ball and chuck-it
he is happy anywhere
