Caregiver

I don’t know what it feels like to lie on my deathbed
I can’t describe the way I feel when I watch you
The deep stare you give
I wonder what’s on your mind
Listening to you sleep breathing so heavily
This sound is calming because it let’s me know you’re still alive

I can stare at you and physically see how you look
But you can’t see me
All you can do is listen to my voice
Creating your own image of me
I wonder how do I look inside your mind
Does my voice match my image
Or is my spirit enough to paint a beautiful portrait

Here today gone tomorrow
But you was here today and left today
Oh how I miss how you would lay
So peacefully
Sleeping the day away
Every so often you opened yours eyes and gave me a smile
Why couldn’t you stay a little while longer
Don’t get me wrong
I love the fact that you’re resting
And no longer in pain
But I’m missing you today

Water Break……

image

Lasted I checked, it is the winter season. Well at least that’s what the news says. But if you check the forecast, it definately does not feel like the winter season.

Anytime the Sun is shining, my little guy feels he is intitled to be outside. Well I don’t mind it. It’s just when it’s going on 2 hours and you’re ready to go. “No mommy, I need some water.”

We take a water break and one more lap around the trail. This should really burn him out. Bath time, dinner and bedtime when we get home. Fun times with the kiddo.

Autumn in Austin

image

I’ve been in Austin, Texas for 7 years now. Usually fall time here is very boring looking outside. The weather is typically nice. But the trees are either still green or just plain brown. This has been the most beautiful fall here in Austin. I don’t know if it’s because of all the rain we’ve had. But I am loving this weather.

If you have time, please get outdoors and soak up some sun. While you’re at it, don’t forget to view the beautiful variety of colors from the trees. I truly feel like I’m back up north. Theses colors are just amazing and vibrant.

Not looking forward for it to be over. Being indoors is not for me. Long walks in the park and enjoying this beautiful weather.
