The Beauty in the Break


My broken heart

No longer fears the collision of your sword

For you have forced

the rise of mountains

For you have formed

the depth and curves of roads

Designing a personalized compass

Guiding me home

  1. Hiya, Lovely. Here’s a little prayer for a warrior to live by.

    “God, give me patience
    because if you give me strength
    I’ll just punch someone in the face.”

    1. Yay! Yes that’s exactly what I was trying to convey- I had this image of a heart with a crack right down the center- yet inside the crack I was walking down the exact path I should be-and each break shapes and moves me into a better place, even tho it’s painful at the time. Love ya sis ❤️❤️

    1. I will check it- thank you for letting me know. Yay!
      Aw, wow– that’s so nice of you to say, that truly makes me feel so good. I write the truth I know and love that others connect. Connection and love definitely heal :))

      1. hahaha! Awesome! I’m so glad you like what you read. Trust me there’s plenty more to come. And you will certainly be blown away than the previously poems you’ve read. My next couple of poems will have strange words you’ve never heard of.
        I’ve created my own language that the Websters dictionary doesn’t have.

      1. You are most welcome. We’re all well, temporarily in MS, 2nd time this week. I was with BrotherInLaw while younger Sis was having some tests done on heart. Got home, old friend and mentor for my Twin Sons passed from Cancer, so packed up early morn to come back for funeral and visit more family, brought Nieces, Nephew and their Mom with me this time, some family hasn’t met the Kids yet, some haven’t seen my youngest SisterInLaw (1st wife’s baby sister) since she was in teens, so relaxing somewhat, Girlies needed a nap, even if it was past normal times. They can stay up late tonight. thankfully I don’t have to work around school schedules.
        Wishing you a wonderful weekend. 👀 ♥ * ͜ * ♥ 👀 Hopefully things will be back to normal? next week.

      2. Well I’m going to stop complaining about all I have to do right now! You we so inspiring. You take care of so much. You’re family is so lucky to have you. I am so sorry about your friend/the twins mentor. How is your sister? Just found out my aunt who has survived breast cancer now how’s mouth cancer. She just found out after a run of the mill dentist appointment. Life is always moving fast isn’t it George.. I have so much respect for you my friend. So so much. 🙌🙌👍🎀🐣🌷🌷

      1. So refreshed! So true! The ocean and then crazy NYC was enough inspiration to keep me going and start my day today! Preparing back to school and a new school year. Years fly by baby!! We have to catch our breath and breathe in the salt water 🌍


  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE this, SG! Powerful words and your picture just as powerful! I have not been ignoring you or avoiding you … I’ve been seriously busy keeping some of my cats alive and well. So please forgive me for not getting back to you. I am just now really stepping back into blogging. Love, Amy ❤

    1. Oh my sweet Amy! Hi! No I would never be upset with you. I understand how busy life can be. You are right to draw your strength and use it for your cats- you have a huge and beautiful heart- how are they? How is Molly? Prayers and love sent to you. Thank you for visiting and your kind words. Do what you have to do. I will be here with love for you sweet rose. I have a vision of you- a tall red rose whose kindness and depth is the dew that drops from the top of your petals- washing your family and friends with a healing love. You are a treasure Amy! ❤️❤️

      1. Molly is much improved, SG, thank you. She gave me the fright of my life and a run for my money, let me tell you! At the same time I had Karma who was dying in front of my eyes. Slowly I am figuring out what best to do for both of them …. on top of the others who deemed it necessary now to have problems which needed to be addressed. It’s been a wild summer, one in which I barely did anything except cats. Now that things are winding down I still hope to get to photo shoots I had wanted to go on. And Bless you for your vision. You’ve brought tears to my eyes. You are a treasure as well. I really HOPE you know this!!! I am so proud of your strength and your determination to stand strong!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      2. Thank you Amy. My sweet soul sister. I am so happy to hear the cats are better- I know you were so worried. You have a huge heart Amy. I so admire you. I am hoping everything is still on the mend 🙏❤️

    1. TY for your kind words, my Friend. I’m sorry to hear about your Aunt. Often you beat Cancer but have to be prepared to do it again, sometimes same, other times different type or place. I beat lung cancer 3 times before thyroid cancer took my voice. Can’t give up, so I’ve adapted and have a lot to fight for in all my new Grands and Nieces n Nephew. Day by day, graced and blessed. We do what we can and know it’s our best. 💞

      1. And again you continue to amaze and inspire me. Can I just give you a huge bear hug from over here in California. You are a hero my friend. All my love and gratitude to you for the life you live, the remarkable attitude you have and the spirit you share. ❤️❤️❤️💙❤️

        We are home safe and sound and trying to rest a little after last week. I used to dread coming home from NM, thankfully TN is a lot closer and allows more time to visit and less interactions with TSA and crowded airports. (double win)
        Finally older members of my Dad's & Mom's family over most recent years have warmed up to my celebrations, lately my Nephew has volunteered to read my eulogies and even a few humorous remembrances. He loves being in an Adult role already at 10, family loves him dearly. And his Haitian accent makes them all pay closer attention to his words, way different than my Dutch/German/Redneck one, to say the least. ))))))))))))
        TY for your kind words, I finally learned valuable lessons about the differences between dealing with temporary loss and letting prolonged bitterness keep me from living life to the fullest and helping those who are still here everyday. Honoring the departed through support for the living is a lesson I wish I'd learned earlier in life, but better late than never. Happiness beats bitterness ANYDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wishing you a wonderful week, hope you are not near wildfires or extreme drought areas. )))))))))))))))))))
