Rows Of Wheat

Viewing wheat this early morning
sure looks like Spring

The rows are so neat and orderly
just the way One Woman likes
her life

Some days and years it happened and
other times it did not

A warm March day
with plans on working outside

Vegetable soup is simmering
lunch and evening meal will
be no problem

Instead of working
I may just walk in the woods
and sit in the sun....

Trying to be mindful
and live in the moment
is not easy

Thoughts of family
they are so busy

One leaving for Jamaica
One in New York
One in Florida
One in Michigan
One in Thailand
One working at hospital
One busy writing, traveling and
transporting children continually

I really am thankful for
life in these 70 plus years

It has all been done
and really another life
could be happening -
but I sometimes wonder

Is this the way it is
suppose to be ?

I often wonder if this is the way it is suppose to be. I wonder sometimes of how I would be living if I had taken a different path. I suppose this is the way it was meant to be, but still...I wonder...and will never know.

The neat rows of spring green wheat are comforting.

In my life there is always a little order and a little chaos.

My life split apart and exploded long ago. It is not at all how I thought it would be.

I am learning to "be" and to "change". It is what it is, isn't it, for us all.

Judy, Wm and Beverly - we are all where we are suppose to be.
No sitting on deck and walking in woods. Worked all day outside and I am tired :) A good tired...

I stop by and read your blog from time to time. You have a wonderfully peaceful place to visit.

There's a quote from a movie called "Jeremiah Johnson" where he says: "The story doesn't always go the way we had in mind." I'm in the process of learning that life unfolds just the way it *needs* stressful as that is...
