Endless possibilities

 

Standing on the beach
The waves washed my feet
Swirling sands building foundation
Firmly held my feet onto the ground
I could feel the strong force
Each time the waves came
Neither pushing nor pulling me down
The grip was getting stronger
As the sands thickened
Made me not wanting to leave
The sea, the waves and the sky taught me
The challenges in my life were sent to make me stronger
Teaching me patience and gratitude
Like the waves that never gave up crawling onto the beach
The sands that kept coming back after being washed away
And the sea with endless possibilities
Only the sky is the limit as far as I could see
I will not give up, until my last breath is taken away from me

Celebrating Motherhood

I had her with me for a while only
I did not understand then
And I sometimes asked why
Why was I given only a short time
With the one I called my mum
Now that I have children of my own
I truly appreciate those early years
And life after the loss
That I should live in the moment
Be thankful of every challenge…
