Wishing From The Woods

It's a new year in my woods.
Nothing really seems different.
A bit icy and cold but so familiar.

I've been at my beach place for almost a month.
The remodel of this old house is now done.
The tiles and carpets are in.
The purr and fur gang are home.
Resting and looking out at the birds.

It's odd for me to be back here.
I'd made myself at home at the beach.
It's very quiet.
I like and need that.

The house in the woods is full of noise.
The main street is just two over.
I know .. odd but true.
My woods go to the road.

The birds sing.
The kids home from their universities make noise.
Mr. Boatman is loud too.

Me, I am at a point of thinking
 of what I want for this year.

Life sure could be easier.
The stress of living with people can get to me.
The holiday gatherings and
the emotional strain it takes.

I just want peace.
I look for it in everything.
At this point, I seem to find it when I am by myself.

Thus, this year may be the year of me.
I might just be done with anyone
who thinks that I need stress.

I will say that peace and quiet
 is what I am wishing for.
May this year also bring you
what you need and wish.
Have a grand weekend.
Dance and sing and enjoy the moments.

I hope you get your needed peace and quiet on the home front. For that matter, I hope I do too! (Referencing the adjoining neighbours, who surely must be coming home this weekend, since school starts on Monday.)

Anyway, let's hope the Universe grants us both our wishes...and let's do what *we* have to, to make them come true! :-)

I feel the same as you - I want peace and quiet. I did not go to any parties this year and wanted to stay home with the cats and hubby. Maybe we just need to do want we feel is right for us and not listen to everyone else!

My wish is that you get your wish.

I sit here drinking a cup of coffee with Safeway's holiday special Lucerne Peppermint White Chocolate creamer, delicious creamer, in the snowman mug that you sent to me. I think of you every day as I use it and wish you well.

I hope you get it. One of the reasons we like living out here in the country house is the peace and quiet. we can go days really without having to deal with anyone besides ourselves.

I hope you find your peace, and the stress leaves you alone! Hope this is your year to feel good, be good, and good happens to you.

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.
