B4 dawn Alex & I are on the road.
I see the sunrise on the run~today’s was bright Orange. I wished I was standing out in my backyard capturing it but I am a different season…..
I’m think the sunrises I don’t physically capture with my camera~leave a mental picture that burns away all doubt, all anxious thoughts and I am @peace as Alex chatters on!😄
Happy Tuesday

Deposits

This was taken two weeks before he passed. I wish I had known then it would be the last photo I took of him. I would have taken more.

Every person we are in close relationship with makes deposits into our lives and we make deposits into their’s. Our parents deposited into our lives, friends deposit into our lives, loved one makes lasting deposits.
I ask you, “Are those good deposits, bad deposits or are they just meaningless deposits?”
I don’t want to waste my time with meaningless deposits. What kind of deposits are you making?
 
Parents know this, they don’t want other children making bad deposits into their child’s life.
We are known by the company we keep. 

Regardless of rather you think it matters or not it does. We respond sometimes out of other’s belief systems, or lack there of, and we don’t realize how we come across.

I realized this when dealing with my Pa’s Alzheimer’s and then his recent death. I saw that my old behavior patterns had followed me through life and when he first showed signs of forgetting and acting strangely I blew it off as his ways of being uncaring.
One day I walked into his room and he said to me, “Oh you look just like my daughter Micki.” I said to him, “Pa it’s me Micki I am your daughter.” He said, “I know I have a daughter named Micki she looks just like you.” Quickly I said to my brother, “Pa is forgetting and we will have to make sure he does this and that.” I was so used to taking care of sick people I guess I didn’t realize how I was responding to him. He said, “Why don’t you ever say I am doing better, your brother always tells me I am doing better, I am going to get out of here, why do you do that?” He was right. I thought about that today and how it changed the way I respond to loved ones and those I care about and I purposed in my heart to believe the best in everyone and look for the good. I thought I was that way and then I realized I am with everyone else except those I am in close relationship with. Because of old hurts, some of them perceived, some legitimate I had my way of responding. Believing the best in people is hard sometimes.
I want to change the deposits I make into those lives I touch. I want them to be MEANINGFUL.
I want to believe the best, even if I’m hurt.
My Pa still continues to teach me daily. April 7 of this year will be three years since he passed. Not a day goes by I don’t think of him.
I pray for that I always believe the best in those I love.
Today will be a great day. I may not get the best out of some but this I know for sure they got the best deposit from me that is possible….tomorrow is another day!

Young Woman Lost

You sit and stare

Not even aware

Life’s passing you by

Not even a glare

The same old thing

You can’t seem to swing

Not even a Ring

Can make you sing

The Daily Grind

Makes your head twine

Stop & Be

Discover clarity

~

It’s calmness you seek

But feels out of  reach

Life’s kooky you see

Kooky as can Be

~

Relax, they say

 Til come what may

I animate my life

For tomorrow’s another day

~

Relax my mind
