A Hold on Me

Hello my friends! I owe you an explanation for why I dropped off the planet or so it seems.

I feel that the Pandemic crept into my soul thrusting me into a fear that has a hold on me. I’ve been vaccinated and boosted, especially since I work at school. But being exposed to sick people and limiting my life with family and friends, its been a trying two years for me.My husband has been sick for almost a year with ulcerative colitis, as well as my mom battling lung cancer.( Shes ok, had surgery and chemo and now theres no cancer)

Here I am again, facing this new world bravely and fearlessly. I’ve missed writing but pushed it away. Im not sure why. The important point is that Im back and eager to connect.

I hope all is well with you all!

All My Best,

Mary❤️

There was a Little Cottage

It’s a cottage of sorts

encased with cedar siding

some were once golden brown

resemble deep black coal

A red tipped roof

has faded in time

seven windows in the front room

welcome the bright sun

this little house once was nearly empty

open to critters in the attic

loved from a distance

but never the less

loved.
