Good-Bye Dear Babie

As autumn leaves fall you slowly drift from me.
Even with all my love and care your strength weakens 
and your stride gets harder each day.
I cry silently  knowing that soon you will leave me,
I can feel it in my heart.
Babie you fill me up with so much joy!
Your eyes, such golden eyes sparkle in the light!
Soon they'll glow no more.
With all the love I have for you, I never want to let you go.
Today I know the time has come.
It's time for your Eternal sleep..
your life on earth has come to an end.
Follow the Stars that will light your path 
for you to cross the brief divide.
Don't look back as I am crying. I am filled with so much sorrow.
Cross over "The Bridge" my precious Babie
where your sister sweet Paisley waits for you.
I will keep you in photographs with memories that
will heal and mend my broken heart.
Rest in Peace my dearest Babie.
Babie passed away Oct. 17  2015

Lend Me A Kitten (author unknown)

I will lend to you for a while a kitten, God said.
For you to love while she lives, and mourn when she’s dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three.
But will you, ’till I call her back, take care of her for me?
She’ll bring her charms to gladden you and, should her stay be brief
you’ll always have her memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below I want this kitten to learn.
I’ve looked the whole world over in search of teachers true.
And from the folk that crowd’s life’s land I have chosen you.
Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labor vain?
Nor hate me when I come to take my kitten home again?
My heart replied, “My Lord, Thy Will Be Done”
For all the joys this kitten brings the risk of grief I’ll run.
We’ll shelter her with tenderness; we’ll love her while we may.
And for the happiness we’ve known, forever-grateful stay.
But should you call her back much sooner than we planned.
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love we’ve managed your wishes to achieve.
Then in memory of her, who we loved, please help us while we grieve.
When our cherished kitten departs this world of strife,
Please send yet another needing soul for us to love all it's life.

Saying Goodbye

~Sweet Paisley~
I feel so much love and gratitude for you.
You were always there comforting me with your
harmonious purring and heartbeats so close to me,
that I felt we were one.

 She was sassy. She was strong.
She was intuitive, particularly to my emotions.
She was brave, defying all odds.
Paisley it broke my heart to see that the road for you
was getting harder to manage.
I did not want our time together to end.
I did not want to let you go but I could see your struggle
with each new day. 
Paisley every inch of you was my sunshine!
I can say that you were
my furry soul mate.
Always by my side during my numerous healing journeys.
You were my creature comfort and my healing light.
I hold precious memories of you forever in my heart.
I miss you terribly and think of you with so much
love and gratitude.
Your feline sister Babie misses you.
Peace be to you.
Your forever sleep. 

~Sweet Paisley passed away Dec. 05 2014~
Cats are like music..
It's foolish to try to explain their worth
to those who don't appreciate them.

So It Begins

"We have been friends together
In sunshine and in shade"
I have sat at my computer numerous times to write a post but I can
never find the words. Much has happened in the year that I have
been absent from blogging. 
...and so it begins.
"But if the while I think on thee,
dear friends,
All losses are restored and sorrows end. "

Paradise In Plain Sight

 A recently published book
 written by Zen Priest Karen Maezen Miller
Isn't really about gardening, the garden she speaks of is our life.
"Paradise In Plain Sight"
A quick read that teaches us to prepare our minds and body for
tranquil contemplation. To uncover what is hidden within us
through an inward journey while observing elements of the garden.

"I realized that everything I want or need..
like the living truth of life, love, beauty, purpose and peace,,
is taught to me right here, no further away
than the ground beneath my feet"
Karen Maezen Miller 
Thank You Karen
 for your wisdom as I now have a renewed clarity
and connection to my garden and Nature!
love and light
