God's Amazing Creation

About Me

My photo
I love God!! I am a travelling RN working in labor & delivery. I have an AWESOME son & daughter in law and a brand new grandson! They will be fabulous parents because THEY are outstanding. I love the Seattle Seahawks...my favorite player hands down is Richard Sherman for a number of reasons. I love to draw portraits and I am dabbling with mixed media painting...I suppose I'm an artist! I love photography, but I'm a novice & am constantly practicing as I make my way through God's wonderful creation.

Because of You

I was self sufficient,
gratified by my independence,
alone but not lonely,
I thought.
But I was restless,
searching blindly for something
to fill an empty place
I didn't even know existed.
Dimly aware
that I was somehow unfinished.
Then you came
and filled everything.
Every space, every need,
even secret dreams
I had concealed from myself.
I was self sufficient
and restless.
For a time, I was profoundly peaceful
and complete
because of you.


Thank you, friend, for all the things that meant so much to me.
For concern and understanding you gave abundantly.
Thanks for listening with your heart
For cheering me when I was blue.
For bringing out the best in me and just for being you.
Thanks for in-depth conversation that stimulated my brain,
For silly times we laughed out loud
For things I can't explain.
For looking past my flaws and faults,
For all the time you spent.
For the kind things that you did.
Thank you, thank you, friend.

My heart, my soul, my life
 will never be quite the same.

If I'd never met you, I wouldn't feel the pain
of losing your sweet love
I wouldn't feel insane.
But if I'd never met you, I wouldn't know the pleasure
of ecstasy's warm gifts and memories to treasure.
Now moving on with life, I force a wistful grin
Ever curious what went wrong
and wondering what might have been.
