Connie’s Coffee Chat

I got up this morning and thought I looked fine,

Then I put in my contacs and saw the decline

Deep wrinkles and fine lines–though fewer of those,

After a deep sigh–I just put on my clothes.

What else can you do, when we’re all stuck inside,

But pray for each other until this subsides.

Check on your neighbor by phone or by text,

None of us know what is happening next.

The days loom before us–a deep dark abyss,

I keep remembering how I once longed for this.

To have no reason to rise and rush out,

Just to love and help each other–that’s what it’s all about.

As a trained Stephen Minister, I have picked up a lot of knowledge about humans, especially myself. I hope my writings will help others. I am a mother to four and grandmother to nine. I hope to see you all on my blog. If I'm not there, I am probably reading!

  1. these are so nice….and encouraging to see positive things coming from our seclusion.
    The two photos are fun to see…the one of my son in law Kent , walking from Julian, back to the Julian Woods Community, about a mile away. Photo taken by his wife Robin, my daughter. They had taken their care for repair in Julian and decided to walk back to their home, 2 miles away, a mile up the tracks, a mile into the Julian Woods community.
    The second one of our eagle sitting in their nest, high up in a tall white pine, along Spring Creek, near FISHERMANS PARADISE, Bellefonte , Pa.was taken by me using my zoom on my camera.
