My old friend…

I love the long, warm days of summer.
The extra sunshine that makes more of my day.

I moan when the season starts to change.
When I wake up cold and pull on an extra cover.

At the same time knowing I love the change.
Love the melancholic drifting of wood smoke.

Love the beautiful colours against crisp sunlight.
The kicking of leaves on a long, rambling walk.

Hot drinks and cosy nights start to draw in.
This season is the one that heralds it’s arrival.

That shouts with fiery glory that it’s here.
Yes, I like the summer warmth for sure.

But I think I love Autumn maybe even more.
Welcome once again my old, beautiful friend

Missing you.. 

The older I get the more I miss them. .

I mean I really do miss them more and more.

I’m reaching older years so what’s that all about? 

My loss seems more tangible than ever. I feel it deep in my soul just lately.
Is it because as I age I feel each day is a step closer to seeing them again?

I don’t know but I do know time is letting me realise how much I was loved and how lucky I was.

I so wish I could go back in time and savour all those moments I just took for granted as a child. 

Be able to say thank you with a true understanding of what I am receiving and the thought and love behind it all.

But I can’t. . I can only remember now and hope they know my eternal gratitude and love.

Thank you mum and dad, I hit the jackpot with you both. I miss you more than you’ll ever know xx 

Relax.. 

It’s ok to be a little lost in life.

Its ok to wonder where you’re going. 

For with this sense of not knowing comes the inner knowledge of your journey. 

Feeling lost means you are finding your true yourself.

Wondering where you’re going means you are finding your true path. 

It’s all as it should be….. so relax, take in the ‘lost’ and the ‘where’ as friends. 

Ones that are simply adjusting your life’s sails..
