My friends and I decided to all write poetry inspired by Thanksgiving. :) So, here is my contribution. I hope you enjoy it! 

Poem 1:

God has blessed me so much.
Over the years I have had so much happiness.
Blessings have been great.
Burdens have been frequent, but bearable.
Love has been abundant.
Every day has been a blessing, even the bad ones.

Poem 2:

I find myself being thankful for you on a regular basis.
Thankful for all the good times we had.
Thankful for all the bad times as well.
Those bad times taught me so much.
They taught me about myself and about life.
They made me the person I am today.
You changed my life, you changed me.
You taught me how to love.
You taught me how to please and be pleased.
You taught me how to survive losing love.
You taught me how to move on.
Loving you and losing you, it all made me a better person.
I am so grateful you were a part of my history.
You prepared me for my future.
I always thought you would be a part of my future,
but I have become okay with the fact you are gone.
You taught me how to live with you,
and I have learned how to live without you.
I am very thankful for everything.
I am thankful for you.
I am thankful for the love,
and I am thankful for the loss.

Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry! Please enjoy the poetry created my all of my friends as well!

  1. Beautiful poetry, Jules. Love, even love lost, has immense value in our loves and in molding who we become.

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

New Year, Same Me. #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to January's Blog with Friends post! I once again decided to join in, and give it my best shot. How does it work? A group of bloggers select a topic, and create a blog post based on that topic, and then join their posts together in a round-up. This month, we are all creating posts based on the topic of resolutions. The posts can include any number of things, from crafts and recipes, to informative writing, to fictional writing, and anything in between.

How do you feel about resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you skip them? I tend to make some, and I tend to do a decent job at keeping some of them. I tend to take a more relaxed view on them, and shoot more for goals than resolutions. I also do not let myself stress over them. I feel if it becomes stressful, that defeats the purpose.

Well, for 2018, I have decided to take them a bit more seriously. I have put some thought into it, and come up with some things I really want to accomplish, improve, or change i…
