How do you express your love to those who matter to you.
This week end it was expressed through cooking of meals my family loves and preparing for the weeks lunches and midnight snacks. It was a time for family to unite in getting some spring cleaning done by taking wood cuttings to the dump, pulling off of rugs and getting the house ready for the big paint job to soon be done. It was the time to do the wash and to listen to some beautiful music to soothe the soul.
It was a time trying to finish a project I started but couldn't find the right thread color after running out, so it took a bit of undoing the sweater so as to make the new thread look like it belonged there. It was a time when we had to coax the old dog outside and force his back legs to walk so he could do his business. Old dogs are like old people, no trouble at all except at toilet time lol
It was a time when we had to keep chasing those coons away trying to make them feel very unwelcome in places they do not belong and yet this is their home and territory we trespass on.
Trying to find balance in life is not as easy as one may think, for man, is a predator with less heart than say a bear could show someone he comes across in the woods.
It was a time to take a moment to say a prayer for those in distress around the world and hope things soon get better for them.
Today is a new day to serenade and to fall in love with this beautiful planet of ours which continues to give and give in spite of all the abuse we inflict upon her, and what better way to begin it, than with Schubert.
