LIFE THOUGHTS: MOTHER IS

MOTHER IS

Quietly
she endures all trials,
in simplicity
does she labor,
with unreserved affection
embraces her world --
babes caressed to sleep;
watchtower to the infirmed

Courageously
she dances through life,
elegant,
never-ending in the finer grace
of love

Fountain of the earth,
womb of life,
good, noble,
pure and at peace

mother is
Beauty Personified.


c. 1983 Fred J. Scheyd

LIFE THOUGHTS: THOUGH

Though you do not see me,
I am with you.

Though you do not hear me,
I speak to you.

Though you do not feel me,
I embrace you.

LIFE THOUGHTS: IMPORTANT NOTES TO MYSELF

I have a few favored notes to myself that I keep in my phone notepad and refer to often. These notes go deep to the core of my being and help me stay on track with my life. I stray off course rather often, but at least I have this tool to help set me straight again. These are MY important notes to myself...You might want to try something similar for yourself...Good luck! and God bless you and your life!

"LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE...FOR BOTH OF US...BECAUSE I CAN'T"...APF plea to me as she was dying of cancer

JUST KEEP MOVING...SMALL BABY STEPS...LITTLE BY LITTLE...

JUST KEEP MOVING TILL IT'S TIME TO SLEEP...I GOT THIS!

LOST IN DEPRESSION, LUST, LAZY AND NO RESPONSIBILITY. CONTAIN THESE AND MOVE ON!

QUIET...PEACEFUL...PRAYERFUL...

TO FEEL BETTER...TO THINK BETTER...TO DO BETTER...TO BE BETTER...

SLOW AND STEADY...KEEP THOUGHTS PLEASANT AND POSITIVE...

WHAT I'M GOOD AT...WHAT I ENJOY...WHAT GIVES ME MEANING AND PURPOSE...

THIS IS A PRECIOUS, BEAUTIFUL MOMENT...HOUR...DAY... NIGHT...WEEK...MONTH...YEAR...LIFE...

SMALL BABY STEPS...SMALL IMPROVEMENTS EACH DAY...STAY POSITIVE...

QUIET. ALONE. PRAY. READ. LEARN. THINK. WRITE. NATURE. AFFECTION. COMPASSION.

FAMILY. FRIENDS. AFFECTION. COMPASSION.

I'M DOING OK...I FEEL PRETTY GOOD...I'VE GOT SOME ENERGY...I'M DOING MY TO DO LIST.

FAMILY THOUGHTS: DEAR MOM AND DAD

I want you to know this...

When I look at my 7 brothers and sisters I am VERY appreciative and VERY impressed. Not a LITTLE appreciative or a LITTLE impressed -- VERY MUCH SO!

Clear as a bell each one is quite different from the other. Line them up in a room and most folks wouldn't guess they are related. Nevertheless, each one -- EVERY ONE -- is a wonderful mixture with a heart and soul of GOLD. That gold isn't necessarily visible on the day-to-day surface, but it is definitely there and shines most brightly in time of need. Pretty neat!

I know the gold did not get there by accident. God put it there and you -- MOM AND DAD -- kept it there and polished it with YOUR NEVER-ENDING LOVE, WORK, DEDICATION, SACRIFICE, EXAMPLE AND PRAYERS -- LOTS OF PRAYERS!

Thank you, MOM AND DAD. Your lifetime of work does not go unnoticed. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

My love and prayers always,
Fred
