Ever have a day when you can't get your ducks in a row, and then it dawns on you - -
you don't have ducks, you have squirrels and they are all over the place! UGH
There is always something to be thankful for ...
so I am searching for those smiles and treasures in the morning following a rough night ...
a morning that has been filled with mistakes, words misspoken, misunderstandings ...
a morning that hasn't been quiet and peaceful within or with out.
However, I will say, I have survived ...
without raising my voice ...
without one tear (yet) ...
with only a few sharp wounds to my heart.
Hope your Tuesday is a good one - filled with sweet smiles, joyful surprises, and much love.
Everyone responds differently to stress. Some will curse, or hit things, or even throw something.
Some rant & rave.
Some sit & cry.
I have done all of these at one time or another thru the years of life.
But as I have grown older, and hopefully wiser, I find myself in moments of great stress focusing on simply breathing in and breathing out.
In these times of stress I do miss Rick, his calmness & peace, his perspective,
and ESPECIALLY his non-judgment of me in those moments ...
when he would simply touch my hand or wrap me in a hug,
"Everyone gets stressed, You are ok even if you are stressed. It will all be ok - one way or another."
Then a forehead kiss, and a smile.
No matter what goes on around us ... Look up!
The clouds are amazing and wonderful ❤
Why this page?
I wanted a place to share coffee thoughts & memes. I use Facebook & Twitter to do just that, however, I realize that many people are getting fed up with all the drama that is on either, and both. So many that were using those 2 social medias to stay in touch, have taken a step back - yet they still want to know thoughts that go thru this scattered widow's brain. If you are interested, here it is :) - - without the drama.

God is God over the storms in my life & world -
and I am His.
Trusting in Him. Holding to His Promises as He holds me.
Learning to laugh, to love, & to live ... again - without Rick, but with God
Life goes on ... even when we don't want it to.
Great grief is indicative of a great Love.
Rick, my Sweetheart.
Margaret, his Beloved.
Always & Forever.
