holding on to you……….   Leave a comment

I’m holding on to you

when I close my eyes

you’re still in my arms

and we never said goodbye

and it’s all that I can do

to go on with my life

but that supposed to be the reason
why I am here tonight

in a downtown restaurant with a friend of a friend

well she sure likes to talk and I ain’t heard a word she has said

but every now and then I nod, and I pretend to pay attention

and I say things like “uh huh” and “yeah your right” and “are you kidding?”

and I laugh when it seems like the right thing to do

it’s hard to hold a conversation, holding on to you

I’d give anything

just to hear your voice

or see you look at me and smile, oh but what I miss the most

is holding on to you

cause here I am tonight staring at a woman, who’s the last thing on my mind

But every now and then I nod and I pretend to pay attention

and I say things like “uh huh” and “yeah you’re right” and “are you kidding?”

and I laugh when it seems like it’s the right thing to do

it’s hard to hold a conversation, holding on to you…………

when I close my eyes, you are still in my arms and we never said goodbye.

My beloved Aaron   Leave a comment

we had our precious Aaron last night and it got to be around nine thirty and he would climb up on the couch and throw the pillow down and lay down and put his thumb in his mouth.
then in an instant he would sit up, throw the pillow on the floor and crawl over to me at the end of the couch and get up on his knees, lay his head on my chest and put his thumb in his mouth.
I would kiss the top of his head, tell him I love him and then he would get down off the couch, throw the pillow back up on the couch and play again for a bit.

 before long he would be crawling back up on the couch and laying his head down on the pillow and putting his thumb in his mouth
Not even a minute later the pillow would go to the floor, he would crawl to me and put his head on my chest and stick his thumb in his mouth again
Again I would kiss him and tell him I love him and then he would get down again
This process was repeated five times last night, and the only reason why there wasn’t a sixth time was because his mom and dad came to get him and take him home.
It still brings tears to my eyes now thinking of how incredibly precious this one year old little boy is

it is a Tulip kind of day   Leave a comment

so while I am waiting for the time to pass for my sister and I to go to Colorado, here in a little over three weeks, I am thinking that she and I should start visiting a different state every year.
I can take a vacation with my husband once a year and then take a vacation with her once a year
I wonder if she would be up for that?
This year it is Colorado, but the more I look at pictures the more I want to go to Yosemite National Park in California
I want to go to The Grand Canyon in Arizona
I want to revisit Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming

I want to show her my beloved Utah
I want to see Maine, Alaska, more of Montana

the list seems endless

So I will have to run this idea by her when we are on the road to Colorado

as of November 16th (my anniversary date of when I started working for the school district, I will have 4 weeks of vacation a year)
And while I want to take two weeks off next July for when my husband retires, that still leaves me with two weeks to use
🙂
Vacations are therapy for my soul
I so love going on vacation!
🙂

the tulips symbolizes my light heart and the fantastic cool breezy day

blowing in the wind   Leave a comment

NOTE TO READERS: (My Australian blogger friend (Who hasn’t written a new blog in MONTHS!  Has some amazing photos that I steal from her and use in my blog,  as with the picture above)

 

It is beautiful outside.
Completely and utterly beautiful
The air is fresh and crisp, a sweet 57 degrees
the sun came up, all pink and deep oranges and now it is a wonderful new day

I love this weather

it feels like fall in August
It is such a fantastic change from the heat and humidity we had for most of July

Today is like a kiss from God
As he blows it down all over us, in southeast Iowa.
Thank you Lord for this beautiful day!
🙂
