7/19/19: Smile 😀

I thought of you today

And I smiled 😀

I remembered your watchful gaze

From just the other day.

I know you so well

And I smile 😀

You look out for me

While managing to make life

Look easy.

Your warmth and love

Make me smile 😀

Your eyes tell me

That you love me.

How did I get so lucky?

How did I fall so hard

For a pair of brown eyes

I thought my heart had a formidable guard.

But then I see you

And I smile 😀

I think of you

And I smile 😀

I smell or feel your presence

And I smile 😀

You have everything I need

And I smile 😀

7-13-19: Just the Other Day

I went to an Endocrinologist for an establishment appt. and he tried to convince me that my prior diagnosis’s were all incorrect. I was so angry 😤.

I have years and documents from other doctors and professionals which back up my hypotheses of having Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s Disease, Adrenal Fatigue and Autoimmune Disease.

One of my favorite doctors told me “You know, sometimes the rules just don’t apply.” when my bloodwork came back as “normal”.

The only normal I can believe in is my Maytag Dryer setting.

At least I know my body better than that guy seemed to assume he did.

I just feel bad for other folks who get misdiagnosed all the time, hence not getting what they really need. Ya know?

My book The Pink Lady Gets A Wake Up Call addresses this conundrum.

Doesn’t it make you wonder where and why the education of the doctors who are giving the misdiagnosed really come from? Which type of rock do they thrive under?! It makes me wonder.

7/1/19 If I could just….

If I could just

Get my hair under control

I’m certain that my

Day would be controllable too.

If I could just

Keep my home

Martha Stewart Clean

I would feel at peace.

If I could just

Keep my heart, mind & soul

Happy

I would be fun to be around.

If I could just

keep my feelings

Quiet

I could live a fuller life.

If I could just

Accept myself everyday

For what & who I am

My mindset would be redirected to something creative.

6/27/19 Turtle Treks 🐢

Tis a note

Of appreciation

For the turtle movers

Who share the roads of life.

Each year

In my little place

Upon this planet

I am lucky

To interact with turtles

Who are on their

Treks to who knows.

I truly look forward

To seeing the shelled creatures

On their way in the middle

Of my way, home.

If possible (and it always is)

I will stop to assist

The turtle to anywhere else

Rather than the back roads

Of my home town.

Sadly I haven’t saved them

All from the crushing

Blows of tires on vehicles

Going too fast or careless.

But I know that I at least

Helped my few

For a day or two

To be off the roads

Footloose and fancy free.

I will always wonder

Where they really

Are headed

Yet I simply set them in the grass

In the direction their shells

Are pointing.

So to the turtles in my

Speck of the world

Know that I look out for you

Each season because I care.

I just hope I’m helping

I’d hate to make

your journey longer

So keep coming back

Each year

And I will honor your

Trek on the roads of life.
