The Sounds

~  #  *  #  ~
Hands holding the darkness in.
Only the distant sounds of pounding emerge.
A bell jingles up the stairs.
The engines hum below.
She can hear herself breath.
The lights have been found.
Singing for food outside the window.
Must be time to start.

Today I held my hands over my face
and listened to the sounds around me.
A roof is being redone and I can hear
it through my woods.
The nails being pounded in.
A cat, Riley, ran up the stairs.
When isn't he doing something.
The computer humming away.
So quiet I can hear myself.
That's a rare thing around here.
A bird singing outside my window.
And, now it's time to get busy with my day.

Beth put things so nicely....sometimes it is soothing to hear the sounds that are going on around us....seems like we get so busy with everything it's nice to just STOP and listen....

Riley, Just give Jc a Meow !
Make sure it's really loud, O.K. !!!

Beth here....Hi Auntie! Rem said he would love to have you for his Aunt. He is doing much better. Almost 100%! I hear you about X-rays but Newfies don't do too well with anesthesia. So that, for me, would be the last resort. But unless something else goes wrong I am doing the happy dance to have the big guy back to normal! Hope you are having a great weekend! Thank you so much for you prayers and comments. I really appreciate it!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
