Is it just us…or do you also get the funny feeling that Samantha and I are being watched…

😝

So we’ll go ahead and wish everyone out there…whoever you are…wherever you are…a lovely, cuddly end to the month!

Symphony.

symphony

Curtains raised
upon this stage
lifted shadows
one new day.
Encores played
familiar piece
kindred players
different key.
Life’s gavotte
a gleeful tune
every third beat
ends all too soon.

So what is left
now but to live
moments to take
and those to give.
To learn to love
and risk to lose
each turn a jewel
the heart will prove.
So let us grow
as rhythms flow
this one new day
for us to know.

Let Us Care For One Another…

Dear friends,

May I tell you about someone? It’s about one courageous woman who has a beautiful heart who just happens to have a brain tumor. She has undergone surgery and a long bout of chemoradiation, and although she has fought hard and continues to fight to maintain the kind of ‘normal life’ someone as lucky as me would take for granted, she was forced to reach out.

Serene Samantha Sunday.

A very relaxed Samantha and Puppydoc would like to wish you all a pleasantly sunny day full of warm blessings and widened smiles.

Metamorphosis.

metamorphosis

Swathed
within the confines
of her tendrils
Cocooned
by the veins
of trepidation

the constraint
of knowledge

of an image
of that which
she was meant to be.

Achingly
she fights
sinews stretched
tendons taut
‘tween flesh and bone
Shattered
is her strength
Dissolved
are her fears
and the form
she once knew.
She awakens.

With wings spread, she flies away…

…and does not look back.

Will Samantha be my Valentine?

This year, Puppydoc asked Samantha to be her Valentine.

After some deliberation…she said “yes.”

They then sealed the deal with an affectionate head bump…

Therefore, they would like to wish you all a cuddly fuzzy head bump as well…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Giggly Samantha Sunday.

Because sometimes…one just has to LOL when asked, “So…are you planning on doing anything special for Valentine’s Day?”

😂

Happy Valentine’s Week, everyone!

You are Cordially Invited…

party2

Dear friends–it’s Meet & Greet time again!

Last month, because so many of you wonderful bloggers visited, I went ahead and collected your links and included them in this post, along with a couple of choice words from your comments describing your blog. I hope this will help jumpstart the day by making it easier for you all to start browsing and to visit your fellow bloggers (They are in no particular order…and they are all uniquely enjoyable!).

But since one sentence can hardly encompass the awesomeness of you all…feel free to comment again and to leave a link to your site or favorite post. And for anyone who missed the last gathering…be sure not to leave without saying hi!
