Well, my sis in law asked me to write a children's poem and they are going to turn it into a song. I kept putting it off, not knowing where to start... then decided to give it a try.
Here they are...
This is the children's poem... i looked at My Youngest Daughter and thought, "what kind of song would you like?" then it hit me *ouch* a song about her day!
I Thank God
When I wake up at the break of dawn
I jump out of bed with a great big YAWN
I help make my bed to start off my day,
and I thank God for hearing me pray.
After my dinner in the bright noons' light
I help my mama tidy then shout, "All Right!"
We go outside to work and play
and I thank God for love everyday.
It's suppertime; the sun's going away
I help my dad cook and holler, "O Kay!"
We gather around sitting in place
and I thank God when i say Grace.
Sleep time comes, tuck me in tight,
I snuggle down cozy, whispering, "Good Night"
I say my prayers and give mama a kiss
and I thank God for all of THIS .

2nd Poem... I was sitting here by my window, looking out at my gardens, and thought they already are a poem... so i wrote what i felt...
My garden is my haven
It's my place to talk with God
He is always there to guide me
and strengthen my weary heart
when life gets too heavy.
Those dear flowers!
So thoughtful, caring and true
Putting on their modest show
for me, their kindred soul.
Butterflies flutter; love everywhere
like sparkling bubbles floating in the air
I watch them flying blithily
forgetting the heartaches of that hurtful day
So plant yourself a garden
The decision is up to you
God will be there waiting
He's there for me and you.

Last Poem.... i really wanted to write one about my brother, who we lost in 1996... very suddenly of hypertrophiccardiomyopothy ...
When you left us, our hearts broke in two
It was so sudden, what could we do?
You were our life, our love, our heart.
Living without you was hard from the start.
It was a bright moonlit night
when you left us with fright
I stood by my window praying with merciless labour
For God to bring you back to fix this broken chamber.
You didn't come back, I was so wrong
Why take you away from where you belong?
Your at peace now, i must think of you,
You live in my heart. I know what do do.

I'm about to leave to go do mom and dad's gardens and pruning. It'll be fun... plus i'll hopefully get some stories from them. I'm going to try to write a book on their lives when they were little. I really think it'll be a good thing. I'm very excited about it.
I've also been trying to low carb all week... been only able to do it in the mornings, as i have to make dinner for the men, but it's a start. I really should change the name of this blog to a smorgasbord of everything lol I've found some of my paperdoll friends blog too! It's so cool :D
Back to the low carbing... today's dinner was chicken thighs, broccoli and turnip fries with alfredo sauce on the side. wow! it was yummy! I'm going to get my pizza dough made for during the week, it's not real dough, but low carb and very yummy! I should have taken a picture of the dinner before i ate it... bear with me, i'll get used to posting the pics lol
It's a sunny day on Prince Edward Island!! yahoo!!
I almost forgot... on my paper doll group a lady shared a wonderful post, i must share it too...
