Kenzie's Socks

Everyone has something tangible that helps them to feel secure.

The object varies from person to person, or critter to critter.
It may be a blanket, or toy, or an article of clothing.

For our little Kenzie, it is our socks.  
She takes them to her bed and sleeps with them.
Sometimes it is one sock, sometimes it is the pair.
We always know where to find our missing socks.
Kenzie is a very funny girl, but we love her anyway!

Friendly Fill-In: Week 7


Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins"! Each Thursday we post four statements with blanks for you to fill in. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen of 15andmeowing.com. The final two statements are offered by myself. On Friday, we post a link so we can all share the completed fill-ins. Please remember to visit everyone on the list, that is part of the fun!

Here are this week's fill-ins with the blanks:

1. My feelings get hurt when ________________________________.

2. I am excited about ______________________________________. 

3. _____ first, then _____. 

4. One time, I _____; that's why _____.

Here are my completed statements:

1. My feelings get hurt when I realize that a friendship does not have mutual loyalty. It is important to me.


2. I am excited about making some positive changes for the “golden years”. Times change, and time changes usSometimes we need to change directions to achieve what we really want and need.

3. Think first, then think, again. Too often, people do not think; they speak or act in haste. So, think twice. What you say and do always affects others. Think about that.


 4. One time, I was locked outside in a violent thunderstorm; that's why I both fear and respect the power of weather. I was only eight years old. It made quite an impression on me to see the lightning, hear the thunder, feel the high winds, and have no access to shelter.


“Don’t walk in front of me; 
I may not follow. 
Don’t walk behind me; 
I may not lead. 
Just walk beside me, 
and be my friend.” 
                           ~Albert Camus

Now, it's your turn. Please link up with us here. Or, you can answer in the comments.

Solstice



The sun sets slowly,
it’s warmth clinging to
shadows and beyond,
seeping into tomorrow,
dragging yesterday along,
melting days into nights
in endless sustenance.
