A Beautiful Mess

Sometimes it’s the shy girl
Who stands out in the crowd.
Sometimes it’s the quiet one
Who makes the biggest difference.

So it was with this girl
Although she did not know.
She was quiet, reserved,
And alone, but smiled.

She was kind and gentle,
A friend to every soul she’d meet.
Yet little did she know
Just how much they noticed.

They would hang on every word
She ever spoke.
They would remember her smile
From years long ago.

They thought she was an angel,
While she thought they did not care.
So while she cried alone at night,
Her smile was bringing comfort to another.

She saw her life as a mess,
But others saw the beauty.
She thought they wouldn’t notice,
But they did.

Just because you’re quiet
Doesn’t mean that people don’t care.
Just because you’re shy
Doesn’t mean they won’t notice.

You don’t need to be loud
For others to see beauty.
You don’t need to shout
For others to hear truth.

It only takes a smile,
It only takes a gentle word.
It only takes a heart of love
For others to notice you are different.

You might see the ugly,
You might feel the pain,
But it never hurts to
Dance in the rain.

Every life has a story,
Every life has its pain,
But every life is beautiful,
No matter how much it rains.

Every story has its mess,
Every story has its pain,
But every life is beautiful,
 A beautiful mess.

Winnie the Pooh

I have a confession. Ok, not really a confession because just about everyone who actually knows me knows it and I am not ashamed of it, but....

I have an obsession, of sorts, with Winnie the Pooh! Yes, go ahead and laugh, but seriously, I kind of like him a lot (ok, not as much as Cowboys, but that is a different story).

So my car has a little Winnie the Pooh hanging on the mirror and he basically is my friend that accompanies me on all my road trips and road adventures of getting lost (happens a lot).

So, whether you like it or not this post is Winnie the Pooh quotes. I probably just scared away half my readers, but you know if you can't put up with my Winnie the Pooh obsession for just one day than that is really just too bad. Be thankful I did not decide to do a Seven Brides for Seven Brothers post instead. I would understand if you left me after that. That would be the testing of whether we are true friends or not, but this time I am just sticking with Winnie the Pooh. ;)

A Peek Into Our Life

Sometimes life looks a little bit like this.

I crochet while he reads.

Quiet mornings where we can sit close.

The Lonesome, the Loner, and the Lone Person

The lonesome person, the loner, and the lone person; they sound a bit alike, but they're all a little different.

The lonesome person. I see them on the street walking past or sitting quietly watching passer-bys. They may not even be sitting alone, but they're still a lonesome person. I see it in the eyes. They're sad. They live in a different world. Maybe a world they used to know, or a world they've always wished for and never had, but they're lonesome and can't get out of it. They live by themselves even though they may be surrounded by people. Maybe they plug their ears with music to block out the noise in their own confused head. But their lonesome and they don't want to tell you. They do and they don't chose this life. Its not that they like being lonesome, but they just are. Maybe they've lived to long in bitterness and hate. Or maybe it was a life of pain and hurt, so they run from it all and hide within. Maybe their lost and can't find …
