Over the Hump Day TGIW

What a pair!
I ran across a few things after an old friend stopped to bring me 2 photos she'd found of her mother's. My mother had given her mom 5x7 photos of me and my baby brother when I was under 2 and he was just a few weeks old. Seeing that photo of my brother really brought a sting to my heart. I was happy to have the picture and talk with an old family friend. Her family hadn't known my brother died nearly 4 yrs ago so it was fresh ... and the respect and profound understanding I felt when both of our eyes teared up. Her mom was like a wonderful aunt or 2nd mom. She died 10 yrs ago. Whenever I get nostalgic, I seem to rummage through my "stuff" -- be it old photos, letters, poetry, writings, articles, cards, etc. That is what I did when I got home from work and was alone ... rummage. So, wanting to share a few of my old "writings" I thought I'd post a blog. I'm pretty sure I posted "Ize Have It" before, but I want to again, so bear with me. The other seems to be an answer to the proclamation at the top of the notepad: "Things to do:"..........
(so, here follows that)
Go to work late--breathe deeply
Leave work early--don't look back
Write lists of "TO DO" -- look at 'em a few days, weeks, months ... and cross many off as lack of time, real interest isn't hard to find -- it hits you in the gut and a tingly, exciting feeling bursts through.
You are goin' on down the road, feeling bad -- would rather not be in the situation I've had to be -- errant way, trespassing on my Soul with your thoughts setting things clear for us to hear, fear or cheer!!
I choose cheer!!!

Today should I:
patronize or
Or should I:
and close my eyes
to the
few tries
to recognize and
reasons for my
heavy sighs?
--no more
--no more
--no more need
to eulogize.

Well I hope my weekend will go like what you say in this post for sure. But today I had to do the "I am woman hear me roar"(if you see the right side of my blog you'll see what I mean) in order to get my car towed out of here and taken to where it needs to go to be repaired..and to make sure they gave me a darn rental car..only took 3 days of me asserting myself, on the phone, not giving up, and getting people to do their darn jobs...once I kept calling and they knew I wasn't going to give up! So, SisStar Kylita I think you would have been proud of me in the last few days.

Now I deserve a weekend break and so I will do just that...get some zzz"s and do what your post says.

Have a nice mellow weekend.


Love, Rhi
