“When one suddenly finds oneself in a swamp up to one’s armpits in alligators, it is difficult to remember the objective was to drain the swamp” on the path least traveled….

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… 🙂

love

To Love you is to daydream of you often, think of you so much, to speak of you proudly, and miss you terribly when we are apart.
To Love you is to cherish the warmth of your arms, the sweetness of your kiss, the friendliness of your smile, the loving sound in your voice, and the happiness we share……
To Love you is to never forget the adversity we have overcome, the tears we have shed, the plans we have made, the problems we have solved, and the pain of separation.
To Love you is to remember joyfully the days we made memorable, the moments that will live forever in our hearts,
The dreams we hope for, the caress and touches of love, and the exhilaration of love that fills our hearts.
To Love you is to need you, want you, hold you, and know you as no one else can.
To Love you is to realize that life without you would be no life at all……..

Hello Diary,

It is a Thursday and quiet so far but storms on the horizon… have been busy the past few days preparing for the storms and the weekend.. even with a few aches and pains, taking advantage of the quiet weather to work outdoors….”I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.” (Author Unknown)..

Here on the prairies there is the possibility of storms end of the week and weekend… “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. (Author Unknown)…

end of the week storms

Unfortunately for those living in the southeast, especially in the land of gators and big snakes (Florida, USA) there is a big wind approaching… “There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, people we can’t live without but have to let go.” (Nancy Stephan)…

And it looks like it will be a weekend event for the most part….

D: Tropical Depression – wind speed less than 39 MPH
S: Tropical Storm – wind speed between 39 MPH and 73 MPH
H: Hurricane – wind speed between 74 MPH and 110 MPH
M: Major Hurricane – wind speed greater than 110 MPH

But weather can change in a heartbeat and hopefully it will change for the better and there will be little (if not any) suffering, especially for those who find themselves without comfort, support or a home… for those people and all creatures;
May flowers always line your path
and sunshine light your way,
May songbirds serenade your
every step along the way,
May a rainbow run beside you
in a sky that’s always blue,
And may happiness fill your heart
each day your whole life through.
(Irish Saying)

they are calling the wind Dorian but here on the prairies it is sometimes known as “Mariah”.. 🙂

And speaking of storms, had better close for now…prepare for life’s challenges and follow the dream in spite of the challenges.. but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Yes, life will put many types of storms in ones path, but here on the path “I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.” (Louisa May Alcott) and for us dreamers and lovers (and hopefully everyone) after each storm there is always a rainbow… 🙂
