Mirrored

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

That kind of action I don’t foster!

Is that really me or an imposter?

I dont see my name on the roster,

But a resemblance I do see!

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

While waiting for my grandson today I caught an amusing site on video. My daughter’s porch has a mirrored medicine cabinet sitting on it waiting to be carried into the house that apparently caught the eye of a little bird.

I sat watching as the little bird saw his reflection in the mirror and kept trying to figure out who that other bird was. It was very cute to watch.

Presidental Proverb

Teddy Roosevelt pic and quote

“Speak softly”

Said Roosevelt

“And carry a big stick”

Passive-Agressive acumen

Old adage

Cinquain

On my walk today I met a gentleman who, in actuality, was walking with a big stick.

As we passed by one another and nodded a greeting, I spoke the quote to him and he smiled. “ Teddy Roosevelt” he said.

“ Oh, I thought it was Snoopy!” I said laughing.

When I got home a Google search proved the stick walker was right!

Guess I got my history lesson for the day!

Plus, a poem inspiration. 😊

At The Zoo in 2002

Kangaroo at the Zoo

Off the marked trail

Grand-daughter chose to peruse

Running with the Roos

Not recommended by Zoos

Gave Grandma a fright

To see her run with delight

Trying to catch the Hoppers

But G-ma was able to stop her

Caught her before they bopped her

Choka

At the Zoo with all 4 of my grand-kids.

There is an area you can walk on a path near the kangaroos. Signs say “Please Keep On Path”. Youngest grand-daughter age 2 breaks loose of my hand and takes off running to try to catch a kangaroo! Thankfully I caught her before the Roo did!

Name Above All Names

Jesus written in concrete on a sidewalk in the city

Yesterday

On a busy street

Set in stone

I saw You

A reminder for all time

That You’re with me

Shadorma

Yesterday as I was walking down a busy city street I looked down and saw the name Jesus had been written in one of the concrete blocks that made up the city sidewalk. That inspired me to stop and give thanks that He is with me wherever I go and that He can also be found anywhere, by anyone, at anytime

This Day


Last,

Final,

Day of October.

A special day?

What will you call it?

October thirty first?

Perhaps Reformation Day?

Or Halloween Trick and Treat Day?

Where will your focus be today?

“This is the day the Lord has made” Rejoice!

“Again I say Rejoice!” Give thanks!

The Lord gives another day of life!

Focus on making it special.

Look for new opportunites.

Enjoy every moment.

Think positive thoughts.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Help someone.

Share your

Smile. 😊
