JUST ISN’T ENOUGH

When DOING everything, just isn’t enough, And we find were worn down to a thread, We need to look and take stock of our lives, And change our behavior instead. If we’re constantly taking on too many duties, Others problems, other projects, get involved, When we haven’t the TIME to take care of ourselves, It’s in the world outside us …

IN THE MOMENT

I have to keep my mind in the moment, So, of what I’m doing …. I am aware, Otherwise I put things all over the place, When I find them say …”what’s this doing there?” It really is frustrating when I don’t concentrate, On the NOW and the things that I do, I blindly go around, setting things down, I’m …

Any “hurting” in life, I did to myself, When I look back…that’s what I see, It wasn’t others who caused me the pain, It was myself…what I did to me, By putting myself in unhealthy places, With people who don’t show respect, Or trying to control another’s behavior, And then it was me I’d neglect.

HOW OFTEN

HOW OFTEN I hear things repeated, And the meaning…I think that I get, And then one day, when I hear it again, I say “Oh, my God, that’s what that meant!” It’s like the stone cutter who’s chipping the diamond, There’s many and many a stroke, It’s not the last one, but the previous blows, That cracked the diamond…it broke. …

HOT FLASHES

I’ve learned to ACCEPT, that “HOT FLASHES” are … A way of life for me, For every two hours, for twenty-one years, I “light up” like a Christmas tree, My grandchildren have stated out loud at church, “Gramma, your having one of those ….” As my face turns various shades of red, And sweat pours out from my head to …
