A misty rain
I walk outside looking at an untidy garden
it is loved
Everything is growing
and I cannot capture beauty with my camera
in the way I see with my eyes and heart.
Thoughts surface lately
so much to do here, most of the chores I can no longer do, In the past they were not chores to me or work
loved doing all the maintenance of cutting grass, weeding, picking up limbs, walking in the woods and can do so little at this time.
Healthy, all is well I am told but arthritis and mobility - do not like :)
Thoughts of what younger do
and I cannot do this
if all grows up around me like a jungle
I cannot leave.
Wonderful to have a dream that becomes a reality and then so much changes. I will just live
among the weeds, over growth and what I see as untidy much of the time
others see differently.
Visitors always sharing how pretty everything looks
Can use a minimum of help as that is all my budget will allow
and thoughts this morning as I walked in the sprinkling rain
I am continuing to change expectations of much in my life....
My cooking that leaves a messy kitchen, piles of books by my chair, many to do list piled
on table and my desk - most just takes longer to take care of
and it really does not matter
just seems I am not the same person as in past years...
Will continue onward
soon another birthday
and so much to be thankful for.
And this one is truly happy....
