Its Not Over Yet

A day filled with every kind of emotion
A trip to the big city
for doctor appointment
this appointment has been cancelled
3 times.  So today was the day..
All is well
The lady with beautiful clear skin
is now covered with brown spots
and that is alright
They are nothing
Discovered the itching under chin
that I thought was insect bite from
being in the woods so much
It was the dreaded poison ivy
so shot and cream and hopefully
it does not spread
On the road home my mind took a journey
to another land - thought if I like it  I would not return
I smiled because I could do it
if I really wanted to
that is if something sold.
Wondered is this the end
Just me and the woods - I love - but wonder
Sometimes wish I could be two people
one in the woods and one that would travel
express the other side of her personality
One of the most difficult things to do is control
the mind - mine sure had fun today
Lunch at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant
seafood soup my favorite with spring rolls
Home to Miss Callie and on the mower
Hey you can see quite a way through the woods
My son will smile
The day is over - and -
one of my old favorites "The Eagles"
is playing full blast
memories of dancing till I was exhausted
If someone came to the door of my cottage
and heard this loud music and saw me
dancing - they would think I had lost it...
Now if my little granddaughter's were
visiting - we would dance for hours.
Most of the time I seek quiet and solitude
but this seems energizing for some reason
Enough of my rambling.
A day filled with many emotions....
Kind of nice'
makes me smile
Life is not over yet....

As the song says, "If you get the chance to sit it out or dance; I hope you dance".......

Your words walk right through my heart, leaving foot prints, move into my mind where it all begins anyway.

Tremendous post!

You are a gift to us.

Thank you, for sharing.

Beverly, :)
Sandra, You make me cry - what a compliment.

I do my best dancing when I am alone. It's far from over for you, my friend.

I hate the brown spots. All over my hands--too much time in the sun with no gloves.
