And I Think to Myself

and-i-think-to-myself

During the day my thoughts are filled to the brim with any given number of items; work, people, media, what is happening around the world. These thoughts intrude my sleep most days, as my brain attempts to sort out their relevance and meaning. Information comes in and rarely leaves, it lingers in my thoughts always. Those around me often ask why I look tired or how do I know that and will comment that I need to shut my brain off some days, and I think to myself if only it were that simple. The only time I really find reprieve from my thoughts and the information overload I sustain every day, is when I find the time to sit and read a good book in the comfort of my home.

Memories of Yesterday

memories-of-yesterday

Slowly she walked into the house where her granddaughter lived, she was there to have dinner and visit with her great grandchildren. She looked forward to her weekly visits since it made her feel young and important again. This time the visit was different; this time she was not in the present, for she was lost in the past. She stood starring at the decor in the front entrance transfixed to the spot where she stood. She smiled watching the little ones pick up some toys and then looked over at her granddaughter, lost in her thoughts, she flashed a child like smile and asked if she could hear her momma play the violin. Her granddaughter looked at her, smiled back and simply nodded to her grandmother picking up the violin. Her mother use to play when she was a little girl; as her granddaughter began to play she swayed to the music. Her granddaughter never once corrected her, she just played and allowed her grandmother to have the moment lost within the memory of her mother.

Little Man’s Birthday!

little-mans-birthday

Carefully my friend prepared the grounds for her guests. She wanted everything to be perfect and in the right spot. Looking around she smiled at how she had arranged the space. Tables were carefully decorated with balloons and every treat imaginable. Stools and chair were found loitering around tables or near the area where the kids would play games while the adults watched and idly chatted with each other about how life has been. I watched from afar waiting to be told what to do, eyeing the cupcakes that looked mouth watering delicious. All to soon I was stripped from my decadent daydream, as my friend cried out that everyone would soon be arriving. I gave her a nudge and reminded her that it wasn’t every day that your little man turns one, which made the others around snicker as she trotted off to get the birthday boy from his slumbers.

Love is in the Laundry Room

love-is-in-the-laundry-room

Standing in the laundry room, I quietly hummed myself as I sorted out the piles of dirty belongings preparing them for the wash. Emptying pockets removing toys, crayons, rocks, and money I smiled at each piece that was forgotten in the pocket. Each item was cherished by the owner which made me smile at some of the oddities found within their pockets. My mother use to say that love is in the laundry room and I often wrinkled my nose looking at her and the daunting chore that never seems to end. It wasn’t until I had to empty the pockets and see the treasures my children keep. Love is in the laundry room waiting to be reclaimed by those who hold on to it.
