Sometimes life drops blessings in your lap without your lifting a finger. Serendipity, they call it. — Charlton Heston, American actor and political activist
Do you remember those federal economic stimulus checks sent out during the COVID pandemic to help Americans make financial ends meet?
Three rounds of “direct relief” were made, starting in March 2020. Even individuals and families earning more than the cutoff point were eligible for partial payments.
Well, I distinctly remember receiving the second one. Opening up the check. And putting it aside to deposit later.
But things got busy, and somehow I misplaced the check.
Who’d have guessed it would turn into a year long nightmare?
Take time to smell the roses and eventually you’ll inhale a bee. ~Author unknown
There once was a bee who did think
From flowers he could steal a long drink.
He chose one and got busy
But left in a tizzy
Without siphoning any of the pink.
Note: This poetic form is Limerick (which I haven’t written in a long time!)
Son, you outgrew my lap, but never my heart. ~Author unknown
Gee, I miss this kid!!!
It’s been many months
Since Domer came to visit.
Time for a blog break!
Note: I’ll be back shortly!
Knowing who you are is the best defense against who they think you are. ~Dodinsky, author
Though I’m a part
Of all the others
Diff’rent — not bad or good
Just trying to be myself
Soaking water, air, and sunshine
Minding my own business as I grow
Conscious I’m the same but very diff’rent.
Note: Poetic form is Etheree.
