A lot can happen in the course of one day, or two and from one moment to the next. This is the beginning of maybe a journal of sorts. And probably a closer look at the Niteowl.

author's note- i really debated with myself whether I should put this up. I mean really, who cares what goes on in the day to day of one person, when life moves so fast we are just trying to keep up with ourselves and what we got going on? I thought then, this would just be for me, as a way to vent, or talk to myself or whatever. If anyone chooses to read and comment... cool, but its not expected. All I ask if something I say moves you, touches you some kinda way, or something. Tell me.

Yesterday started out pretty good, I went to Michael's with my 11 yr old daughter Rachel and we were just enjoying ourselves looking at all the little charms they had for bracelets and such.

We found some that we liked. I found a music note, she found a camera, and I found two more for my other girls. An artist's palette for the Van Gogh in my life and a hot air balloon for my eldest. She's out there in the world working and living life.She's experienced a few bumps on the road as we all do, but she keeps going.

That hot air balloon would best serve as a reminder where words fail that life is an adventure- and when she saw it, she understood immediately. All in all, I was happy that my girls loved what I chose for them, and were so appreciative.

**********************************

Then came today. I rose early and went with my daughters to the park. It was beautiful, the sun was shining and yes already hot as heck. I watched them do their warm-ups and stretches, then they took off jogging together.

 I watched them for a moment and I was happy and full of pride. I hope and pray they would always be this close. Then I started my walk, I needed it, missed it even. I hadn't gone on one of my own walks in awhile. So yes, this was very much needed.There I could enjoy nature and sort out my thoughts and pray to my Heavenly Creator.

I even stopped long enough to watch these two squirrels playing and running around. They chased each other up and around a tree, jump down then scampered off into the forest together. It was the cutest thing I'd seen, aside to seeing my daughters run together.When my youngest fell behind they stopped to wait for her and one ran back to check on her. Yes, that's how I want them to always be with each other, even after I'm gone.

So I kept going on my solo walk, little by little, I was letting go of alot of mental baggage and negative energy that for some dumb reason I'd held onto.Then out of the blue, I felt a nice cool breeze whip around me.That breeze triggered a bittersweet memory:

I remember my exes father had passed away in 01/02 and when I attended the funeral of this gentle old man, I recalled feeling the same wind wrap around me. I felt like he was near. Then a song came to mind.

**Hold on- I know what you are probably thinking. I got a song in my pocket for every occassion under the sun, and pictures too, lol. Not entirely true. I think it happens that way for a reason (with music, anyways), and as much as I love music and like to showcase it in my work somehow or another. Well (shrugging shoulders) I couldn't help it, it just happens this way...

Comeback-

Walking up the stairs, just late afternoon

Sweet wind blew

Not a moment too soon

I cried when I realized, that sweet wind was you

Spirits come and spirits go

Some stick around for the aftershow

Don't have to say I miss you (don't have to say I miss you)

Cause I think you already know

If you ever lose someone

Dear to you

Never say the words, they're gone

They'll come back, yeah

They'll come back, yeah yeah

They'll come back

Tears go here

Tears go here

Tears go here

Tears go here

***************************************

Anyways, my exes dad had always treated me with just as much love as he did when I was once apart of his son's life. To this day, we are cool with each other. Our lives have both taken quite a turn, but he's still a phone call away should I ever need him.

So back to the breeze...yeah I know, I tend to veer off sometimes. Yes, it was a nice memory. Funny how the littlest things trigger off so much in a person, or me rather.

I looked up at the big blue sky, praised God for it and let out some air I had breathed in. How could anyone in the world in this very moment in time ever have a problem?

Someone does, and it's there, it may be little it may be big, but one thing still rings true each and every time, this too shall pass. I take comfort in that, because the sun will keep shining, the earth will keep spinning, and everyone and everything else will still go about their business.By the grace of God, he will bless us with another day to try again to be our best.

I felt great again. I had to pray that whoever was going thru something, would find peace, a prayer answered, clarity, love restored, health, faith renewed.

Then in the not so far distance, I saw my girls waiting for their slow poke mama who was just walking around smiling and happy. Wow hu? Yeah, that's what I say too!! What a day a difference makes.

We went home, got cleaned up, then I whipped them up a late breakfast. Then went on with my day.

**of course, there are ' things' I left at home, that I won't speak of that challenge my patience and attempt to steal my joy ( but that's another story, lol).
