Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂

A Wednesday, spot of tea in hand, thinking about friends and

As the dawn approaches
One contemplates not the day,
But all the years of memories and thoughts
That one acquired along the way.

Some filled with sadness, sorrow perhaps
Some with happiness, love and without fear,
Some to bring out the laughter
Some to bring out a tear.

A special day and one to treasure
And not because of the calendar age,
Because the book of memories and thoughts
Will be adding another page!

Even though a distance and time apart
It will be a day that we will share,
Our love and understanding knows no time or distance
Be assured, have no doubt, I will be there!

It will become our memory, and share we will
Today, and every day…… forever,
Because of our free spirit eternal
Beyond…………. the 12th of Never!!

Hello Diary,

Multitasking again today… 🙂 woke up this morning to red skies…

red skies1

A indication of future storms here on the prairies “red skies in the morning, sailors warning” confirmed by the weather service of possible severe weather tonight and tomorrow… add to the fact that I got the new refrigerator Monday…

new fridge

Soooooooooooo, presently scurrying around doing tasks and chores before I “batten down the hatches”.. 🙂 all a part of life here on the prairies while searching for ones destiny…

Destiny sits upon the morning horizon
Always in site, but never clear
And as I travel along the road I have chosen
Destiny remains forever in place
Sitting upon the morning horizon

But as the years pass
And the road spans the distance
Between yesterday and tomorrow
I know my destiny will arrive

For time alone will close the gap
So yesterday becomes dust filled memories
And the horizon of tomorrow
Will be the road of today

For then, there will be no yesterday or tomorrow, only today
And when that day arrives
I will find peace and be complete
For I will be one with my destiny

(Favi F)

One day here on the path will find that destiny and it will be the beginning, not the end… 🙂 and there will be days with sun and days of gloom for “One will not know success without failure, one will not know happiness without sorrow, one will not know love without heartache”.. (Larry “Dutch” Woller) and there will be choices to make..

CHOICE
I’ll be what I must be, in spite of me
as life won’t always give the things I choose
and so I have to make what has to be
into the things my life and I can use.

All roads don’t lead to Rome, as it’s been said,
but some to Paris, and a little fun,
so I will change the path where I would dread
to go to where I choose, when I am done.

I’ll not be forced into a better scheme
if I can’t see the end result my way
if it’s not part of what my heart can dream
it never will come to the light of day.

All things can change, if I have any voice
in what they are, and I will make the choice.
(Vee Bdosa 2014)

And make those choices I will by following my heart “Never look left or right, Always look straight ahead, Always listen to your heart, Pay little attention to your head” (is that groaning I hear??.. 🙂 )

Well, I had better close, have more choices to make before finishing the day, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Venturing down the path least traveled while waiting for that one moment in time …”For then, there will be no yesterday or tomorrow, only today, and when that day arrives I will find peace and be complete, for I will be one with my destiny” (Favi F)

Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I’m only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

I broke my heart
Fought every gain
To taste the sweet
I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I’ve lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I’ve laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

    • Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday, dear lady, and until we meet again..

      May the road rise to meet you
      May the wind be always at your back
      May the sun shine warm upon your face
      The rains fall soft upon your fields
      And until we meet again
      May God hold you
      In the palm of his hand..
      (Irish Saying)
