What can I say?

I’m surviving’

I am!

With or without you… like the rest… heh

Go on with your fake world…

What happens when you trust again?…

This song was in my head as I woke up this beautiful morning… must be a reason…

And I’m not gonna lie
Say I’ve been alright
‘Cause it feels like I’ve been living upside downWhat can I say? I’m survivin’
Crawling out these sheets to see another day

I’m gonna be fine
I’m gonna be fine
I think I’ll be fine

Locked love?

One of my stops is Byram MS… at the Swinging Bridge.

So if you walk on it yes, it moves and I suppose you could get it to swing.

So as I walked into the bridge, two young fellas were standing near the middle and yell, “ y’all better hurry if you wanna see a alligator.” Uh yeah I wanna see one… sure enough on the bank of the river was a good sized alligator. Cool!

So after the alligator excitement a small walk on the bridge I noticed all these locks on the bridge.. now let me just say my mind was just reeling… locks? Omg 💕

These young men were very kind and happy to talk. So I had to ask, even though I knew the answer… so what do these locks signify? One of the men said it’s for love. The things you run into when you least expect it. Well, in France there’s a bridge where two lovers write their names on a lock put it on the bridge and throw the key in the river.. Someone must have brought that with them here. So very cool. Locks for days… love?

I sure hope so…

So this was all cool and all but, back at camp… a red cardinal… yeah ..

And just to dig it all an’ not to wonder, that’s just fine
And I’ll be satisfied not to read in between the lines

Happy 4th!

It’s so funny

It’s funny how when you’re in the midst of loss or just feeling sad how you don’t understand that life just goes on…

But once on the other side it’s like an aha moment. It’s so nice that life goes on. The weight is lighter and new replaces the old.

Hopefully the lesson is learned and on we go. So many little sayings like live and learn, and some people come into your life to stay or to teach you a lesson.

We are constantly learning … life is short and every moment a precious gift. Sadly it can’t always go how you would like but maybe that too is a gift.

We all need someone to love and to hold
We all need shelter to keep us from the cold
We all need laughter when life gets hard
We all need someone to love us for who we are
We all need someone to love and to hold

Ain’t that the truth..

Giving Thanks

So much to be thankful for.

This is the first Thanksgiving with my family in 17 years. It’s already so emotional.

We’ve had to rent a place since there will be a few more than usual.

Along with my family are my friends, both in the real world as well as my internet ones.

You.. I am very grateful for you…

I am truly blessed.

So much love and so many blessings to you.

Raq 😘

Sola, solita

No one else needed.

Solo bike ride on a beautiful day!

This here rebel Raq took off to check out the great outdoors..

Ok, so lately I have broken my wrist, fallen a couple times and let’s just say graceful hasn’t been in my vocabulary.

I was a little worried and excited about taking off on my own this morning. So I got all ready wrapped my wrist, sunglasses, keys and off I go! A few miles in I realized I forgot my helmet! Oh and ID? Nope nada. Had my phone, headphones and some coconut water. Oh well I figured if I fall it’s not usually my head that takes the hit. I know, the way my luck has been running it would be the first thing to hit the pavement… lol

Took it easy and just enjoyed myself.

Going to enjoy this trail all I can for now. There was quite a fire near here yesterday so there is still some smoke in the air as you can see in the pics.

This song came on and I could swear it was my trusty steed (bike) singing to me! 😉

So the rest of the day will be packing boxes and this song sola, solita in the head .. lol

Have an amazing day! Much love!
