Be grateful when things are going your way.
Be graceful when they’re not.

Yesterday I had a funeral to go to in Laurel (MD), about an hour away. I left here around 930am, didn’t get home ’til almost 7pm. I didn’t plan on being so late, but it happened that way. Besides being sad, it was a good day – even though my sister showed up. She was only there for the funeral, and didn’t say a word to me. Which is a good thing. I was surprised, to say the least, but everything worked out ok. I’m glad my son wasn’t with me though – he would’ve freaked out and we probably would’ve had to leave.
You can read the post “me and my sister” if you’d like to understand a little what went on between my sister and I, if you’d like.

Whatever life throws at you, even if it hurts you, just be strong and fight through it. Remember, strong wall shake but never collapse.

I am floating away
lost in a space of my own

floating in the black

Today would be my parents 52nd wedding anniversary, I was going to share a photo but they are still on my other computer. I’ll transfer them sometime…I’ve got a viewing to go to today and a funeral tomorrow. So it will happen when it happens.
My cousin passed away April 13, she would have been 90 in October. She was actually my dad’s first cousin (my grandmother and her mother were sisters), but we were close. So the next couple of days I may not be around so much.

It doesn’t help any that I’ve been having issues with the internet…yesterday, after finishing my post I was kicked off the internet. Not once, but twice! After the second time I just logged off. I was having issues with the tv as well…we stream. Not sure why, but it is what it is.

So anyway, here’s a photo I took recently with my cell phone…

Never let a day pass without looking for the good, feeling the good within you, praising, appreciating, blessing, and being grateful. Make it your life commitment, and you will stand in utter awe of what happens in your life.

start the new day with a song

Life’s a song
Sing it!

I know I showed you the original photo yesterday, but I can’t help it! With my new computer, and my old computer, and things being a little crazy right now…it is what it is. Plus, I like the photo! I wrote the words free hand in PhotoShop, I couldn’t find a font that I liked. Pretty good, I think…

Anyway, I remember my grandfather singing in the morning. When we stayed at their house, for what ever reason, in the morning he always had a song in the morning. He would be in the kitchen, cooking breakfast and singing a song. The smell of bacon and eggs cooking, and his voice is something I will never forget. My son, who is named after him, is the same way…a song in his heart.

Kindness begins with the understanding that we all struggle.

No matter what people think of you
keep singing your own song.
Always!

what a wonderful world

Oh great spirit
who made all races
Look kindly upon
the whole human family
and take away the arrogance and hatred
which separates us from our brothers

female redwing blackbird
taken April 20, 2021

I caught this redwing singing her heart out the other day…a few years ago, we didn’t have any redwing blackbirds on or near the property. I think the development(s) going on in the area has caused them to move. Which is cool with me…the wildlife moving in, that is. It’s sad that the development is going on…but, where I’m at there will be no developments – farm country. And the farmers love what they do and won’t be giving it up any time soon.

Sing, sing a song
Sing out loud
Sing out strong
Sing of good things not bad
Sing of happy not sad.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don’t worry that it’s not
Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

Sing, sing a song
Let the world sing along
Sing of love there could be
Sing for you and for me.

Sing, sing a song
Make it simple to last
Your whole life long
Don’t worry that it’s not

Good enough for anyone
Else to hear
Just sing, sing a song.

your own kind of beautiful

a close up of a Queen Anne’s lace flower
with the words “be your own kind of beautiful”

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything with my shop…have been contemplating deleting it. But, before I do that, I thought I’d share some photos I have available for download. I’m also thinking about making prints available… if I do that, only sizes up to 8×10 will be available and only prints (no frame or matting). I can do frames and what not, just worried about shipping. I’ve been hearing a lot of complaints about shipping…anything. And if the frame happens to be glass…don’t want to take the chance of it would breaking. That would be horrible… Mail service, at least here in the U.S. has been questionable to say the least.

By all means, if you see a photo of mine that you would like to have a print copy of and don’t want to go through pixels, picfair or shutterstock…email me at hollysworld77@gmail.com. We can work out details. I’ll even sign it at no extra cost 🙂
