hello, it’s mom

Hello, it’s mom
I was wondering if after all these days you’d like to see
How I’m doing, today
They say that time apart is good for most
But I ain’t done much but eating

Hello, can you hear me
I’ve been stuck inside this house for days oh what a treat
I’m snowbound, with the pugs
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the sky dropped at my feet

There’s such a distance between us
And now there’s lots of snow

Hello from the other side
I must have text a thousand times
To tell you I’m fine and surviving it all
But when I text you never seem to see it at all

Hello from the inside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you we’re fine, and surviving the storm
But it don’t matter it clearly doesn’t worry you none-anymore

Hello, its mom
It’s so typical of me to think about myself, I’m sorry
I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out to the store to get some bread and milk
It’s no secret that the both of us are running out of both.

So hello from the inside
I must have text a thousand times
To tell you I’m fine and surviving the storm
But when I text you seem to be away from the phone

Hello from the inside
At least I can say that I’m fine
And tell you I’m sorry for bothering you
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t worry you much anymore

Oooh anymore oooh anymore
Oooh anymore
Anymore

Hello from the inside,
I must have text a thousand times
To tell you I’m fine and surviving the storm
But when I text you’re never near to the phone

Hello from the inside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m fine and surviving the storm
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t worry you much anymore

Forgive me, I’ll blame it on Cabin Fever!

Ode to a Sweater

sweater-clipart-9cRd4dgce

My Comfy Sweater

You are always there for me comfy sweater

Waiting in my closet for the call

You wrap me in your warmth and cradle me

When I feel blue

You dry my tears with your sleeves

You never judge, you never reprimand

You are just there

When I feel lonely

You wrap yourself around me like a gentle hug

You have been through a lot with me comfy sweater

You have seen despair, anger, anguish

You have held me tightly through all the sad times

You may be worse for the wear

But when I feel lonely and sad

You, my comfy sweater, are always there.

Christmas Lights Aglow

“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.” ~ Ruth Carter Stapleton

“May Christmas lend a special charm
To all you chance to do.
And may the season light your way
To hopes and dreams anew.”

~ Garnett Ann Schultz, “My Christmas Wish”

“Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas. All else is outward display–so much tinsel and decorations. For it isn’t the holly, it isn’t the snow. It isn’t the tree not the firelight’s glow. It’s the warmth that comes to the hearts of men when the Christmas spirit returns again.” ~ Unknown

“Christmas is forever, not for just one day,for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.”

~ Norman Wesley Brooks, “Let Every Day Be Christmas

“Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and
dance – each beautiful, unique and too soon gone.”

Bird in Snow

Bird in Snow

As I gaze out my front door,

nestled in my sweater,

warmed by the heat of my fire,

I look in amazement

at you perched on that branch.

As snow and sleet fall down around you

you remain calm, unruffled dare I say?

You are not scrambling around

worried about getting that last  carton of milk

or that remaining loaf of bread.

You calmly perch on that branch

secure in the knowledge that God will provide.

“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.  Are you not much better than they?”  Matthew 6:26
