Sing You Back To Me

Spring crocus

01 A Beautiful Morning Click to play the song.

The bright sun was pouring through my window this morning. The birds were chirping. Sometimes nature cooperates on the days when you need it the most! I lay there not wanting to move and soak up all those bits of goodness and warmth. It made me think of my old gardens and the pleasure they brought me. The early spring crocus were always the first glimpse of spring! How I loved to see the flowers pop up just miraculously on their own. So, a morning such as today reminds me to be thankful for vision, health, and mobility….all the things that perhaps not all of us have or can do easily!

I’ve had this song on repeat in my car, (Sing You Back To Me – Trisha Yearwood) as if wishing these thoughts would make it all better. Crazy I know, but then again, who ever wishes for things that can really happen, that’s the beauty of a wish….it’s your dreams. When I wish, I wish BIG…everyone should, don’t you think! It’s a moment of escape from reality, a moment of hope, a moment when you think the impossible and dream that it might just happen. So, as I play this song (I’m not able to upload, it but will share it on FB, you should listen, it’s just really beautiful!), over and over I might add, driving on the way to work and back home, thinking about things and wishing. I’ve been blue. And I need to better cope with things.

Aging isn’t always an easy thing. Everyone has challenges I know, but sometimes others have way more than the rest! I always wonder, why this needs to happen. Why should anyone be subjected to such pains and sorrows that often old people have to live with. I know that it is part of life, but, it is one of the most heart wrenching things to experience seeing the ones you love suffering so.

I know these thoughts aren’t really anything new, and perhaps this post is merely for my personal benefit, a way to help me cope, which by the way, isn’t coming too easily. Everyday I need to pick myself up and brush myself off and find the courage to feel better, be grateful for all that I am blessed with and carry on. After all, I know, that if I don’t take care of myself, I certainly can’t be there for anyone else. And, that’s important right now. When others really need help, we all need to be there for them. I so wish I could do more!

All these flowers, well I hope they bring you a bit of happiness, I’m sure all of us, for our own personal reasons could use a bit of EXTRA happiness in our daily lives!

So, this post has been a moment of personal healing and a bit of inspiration that I want to send to all of you! A day of sunshine and warmth, and a bit of love sent out to all of you with the hope of a good day ahead!

Pansies

All these flowers are from my gardens over the years! I think the garden would be so healing right now…don’t you? So, enjoy these photos…and listen to the music….just a nice way to start the day!

It’s helpful too, that I have a hobby that is so healing to me! In my free time I do escape to my jewelry bench. This hobby is done strictly for my pleasure. I don’t need to support myself with the income that I receive for the sales of my jewelry, so it is even more enjoyable as I work only when I am inspired….and pour into my creations! These are times filled with wonderfulness! I meticulously create something that I envision being loved by someone! That’s really fun! So, it’s fun for me and it’s fun for others too! I am so HAPPY with my LindaGeez and LindaGeezToo Etsy shop! It has been a pleasure and I am happy that others seem to love it as well. My sales are great and I am quite grateful that I receive wonderful feedback!  Stop by and see me! Send me a comment or a convo to me in my shop! I would love to hear from you! This is what keeps me going!

Love and Peace!

Linda

A Tiny Light

A Happy Celebration

Click to  enjoy this really nice song Tiny Light! I think it’s just perfect for my little blog tonight!

I have come to understand that often emotion gives one an overwhelming desire to express oneself. Sometimes the expression is internal, other times creatively, or often verbally. In my case, I think I have covered all aspects and am now moving into this written form of expression.

This is a happy photo of my mother and father. My mother is ill right now. Just a short time ago this evening, I came home from a visit with her at the hospital and then went to visit my father at his home. An hour ride home, music and a whole bunch of thoughts flying around in my head lead me to writing this blog.

It’s been a tough time for my family as of recent. I think illness, injury, surgery or  job loss affected just about everyone in my family. Often it leaves me feeling blue, but truly, I must say in the end, I have realized how blessed I have been. So far, thru all the bad, I know we were blessed and the outcome could have been so much worse. I am thankful! And today, again, made me appreciate that perhaps the angels are on my side!

Yesterday was quite a sad day visiting my mother, she was really not doing very well! And, as I was driving into work today, my heart was filled with such sadness!  Tonight a bit of hope, a “Tiny Light” and there were smiles and happiness! We sang songs together while holding hands,  listening to my iPhone: Dean Martin, Janis Joplin, Andrea Bocelli, Tony  Bennett, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles to name a few songs of our hour long little musical! Wow, she enjoyed it… humming along and it was really fun when there were times she did indeed remember the words! The iPhone just amazed her and she loved seeing photos of Jaden (again), and recording her voice, and looking at all my phone apps! She was happy and settled and I felt good that I brought joy to her day!

From there I went to see my father. Not often do I visit with my parents individually, and it was quite nice to have them all to myself! I reminded my dad that there is more than just fluff under me and my sisters curls! Sometimes, having brothers in the family, and being of my father’s generation, he thinks “stuff” needs to be discussed with the boys (although we are all grown, it’s still the boys and the girls!) only! It was a success!  My father was sad and worried when I got there, but again, I felt good when I left because I got a smile from him!

So, nothing compares to love and understanding! It can brighten up the toughest day!  06 Everybody Loves Somebody (you can click to hear this song by Dean Martin too! This is the song originally I was going to use, then Tiny Light came on and I knew that was perfect for this blog!) So, I feel a bit at peace tonight!

Oh, of course we talked jewelry tonight! Mothers, they are your greatest fans (and sisters too)! She is so amazed at my little Etsy shop! Buying and selling online to someone unfamiliar with such experiences sounds so AMAZING and exciting! The connection in a hospital is slow and sometimes unreliable so, our internet tour was shortened! I wanted to show her the blog I did for her on Mother’s Day again, she feels like such a superstar when she sees it, but heck, she is! So, this is a perfect end to the day, for a little bit she was happy and having fun, and that’s a great feeling to bring joy to someone suffering so much!

So, maybe some of you can share the amazing internet with a senior who hasn’t been able to enjoy it on their own! I SO wish she would be able to use a computer on her own!

So, take a look at my Etsy shop and enjoy browsing thru my creative times and the things I dream up! Spreading peace and love to you through my creations!

Have a nice day! Love and Peace….Linda
