Picture Memories

I thought each week I’d set out to do a post of a childhood memory and add a picture (googled or found on Bing) of an event. I thought this would be fun to do and add some positive memories to my life.  I was around 6/7 years old and I was at school,
we were celebrating that Spring had arrived and my mom made me this pretty mint green dress to wear. We were doing the Maypole dance that day with paper mache/ribbons.

Sitting here I can remember the glee I felt and my face was lit up with tinges of pinks and reds, I was smiling ever so big. My hair was long with curls floating down my back. My eyes shined with radiance, it was very rare for me to be able to join in on outdoor activities because I was a very unwell girl all the time. I remember the excitement I felt when the time came to do the the maypole dance. There was lots of laughter and giggles, the whole place was filled with excitement and joy. We intertwined all the ribbons and covered the pole with colours, one pole was all pastel colours and another bright and be colours.

We got to spend the whole day outside with all the kids from the school. I remember sitting on a hill and watching as everyone laughed and a few that cried for whatever reason they felt was necessary.

These were wonderful times in my life.

Choosing my Joy~

I’m a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend. I cook, clean, work, teach, study, live, love and laugh, but when it’s all said and done, I still feel empty. I want what I can’t have, I’ve wanted it for a long time but it was taken. I thought to myself, the desire for it should go away now that I’ve prayed…I’ve cried, begged, pleaded and even pretended it wasn’t there; I cry out to God and beg Him to please just take this from me, do something to strip me of the earthly desires, of the evil in my heart and nothing happens…it’s still there and some days it’s hard to swallow and suck down the tears inside, it hurts so much and in one brief moment, it could all be gone so quickly! He gives me words to bless others with and release my own thoughts.
