Ah A Short Break

I only worked until 11:30 today. Then I went to Wal-Mart for soil and a few new tanks and a pair of sweats. Went home and changed before heading out to pick up Little T.

Little T is my girl friend V’s daughter. She called me out for missing two birthdays. So today was our afternoon into evening sleepover.

We went to Dollarama first and she picked out a cute little jewel box kinda. Has four little boxes to put things in. Also paints. And paint brushes. Then I found butterflies and well I had to buy two of each. One for me and one for Little T.

We then went to Sobeys and shopped.

Ice cream. Chicken strips. Mozzarella sticks. Veggie straws and Sun chips. We have Ginger Lemonade as well.

I also repotted my lavender. New pot. New soil. A whole bag of it. Gave it a soaking. Fingers crossed it is going to be ok.

Within Reach

Each hurt
each pain
each bitter pill I had to swallow
became a piece of armour
until one day I realized
I was covered
head to toe
silver armour
diamond studded to ensure
that no one can get through
no one can shear past this woven protection
and within
my heart
my soul
my being are kept hidden.
I feel the sun upon my face
arms akimbo
soaking in the natural beauty
feeling it upon my soul.
reaching for the warmth
tears begin to pool
slow to seep
fall over slender cheek
eyes closed
head back
deep breath
taking in cleansing air
exhaling a black cloud of emotion.
All the things that would hold me back.
I embrace this time of change.
I embrace this time of looking back
accepting what was.
I embrace this time of now
learning anew who I am.
I embrace this time of looking forward
to seeing my dreams and reaching for them.
