Earrings and a neck-a-lace,
Put on lay away
At the store for two more weeks,
Till you’ve cash to pay.
Christmas Eve is coming soon,
And you learned, oh man,
Toasters and such don’t make her swoon;
Do better if you can.

Diamonds, rubies, peridot
At a decent price;
She won’t really care a lot,
As long as they are nice.
You learned your lesson well last year;
Now you’ll pass the test.
Jewels and flowers will draw her near;
Now, go and do your best….
Oh yes, you will, right?

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
