Man OVERBOARD! Random, rough, unedited poetry...

Diving into some random poetry. Often we as humans really know how to stick our foot in our mouth, especially to the ones we Love the most. I'm exposing a piece of my heart to y'all- Here's some older writing from a past rough road. Hope it helps you melt your loved ones heart a bit after one of those 'dog house' moments. We've all been there, and Lord knows, forgiving yourself, and healing a moment in time takes many more words than usually initially spoken.
For the record, this is pretty rough (just about as rough as the moment that brought this to light!).. But here's goes nothing!

I saw a shooting star last night, & wasn't sure at the time what I'd wish for...I know now, so if I can please still have my wish, it's that you will always SEA me. Like a star lost in the ocean, you found me and saw value in me long ago. Though the tides have turned, my love for you is still the same. Like the endless waves crashing upon the ocean shores & Rocky waves of life, I know where my true love lays. It lays its head on solid ground at night, not grainy sands of time. It lays beneath the cover of your wings and your forever shining light. Whether the brightest of Sun, the cloudiness of day, in the light of the moon, or the stars in the skies, or the pitch darkness of the wilderness, you shine for me wherever my path & journey takes me. I will follow you to the ends of the earth & back just for a glimpse of your light. Your lips are like the sweetest of candies, your sweat like the saltiness of the seas, when I hear your voice my world still crumbles, & your touch still gives me goose bumps. I love you now, then, & forever more. Always, endless..without limits, for infinity and beyond..you are my one true soul mate, my one true LOVE. I will always need you, always seek you, always and forever long to feel your touch. I'm broken & stained like the seas sand dollars placed on the scattered shore. SEA me now and find those promises scattered like mini doves, that once formed your star inside that penniless, worthless, & broken sand dollar. So for now, I'll wait. I'll be patient & kind, & I'll rejoice in you.  I will wait for you to SEA me again while I gaze at your face. Whether near or far, your my rock, my solid ground, my anchor. You complete me. Your face is ingrained in my mind like a burning Sun on a hot scorched day. If I can measure & listen to your mind's waves I will. If I could SEA your dreams I would help to bring them into reality. Come back to me and hold me again.
Never ending, ceaseless. I truly LOVE you.

Thankful for a little rest. Although it was not my intention whatsoever, after tropical storm Bill allergies caused a week of tension and headache... This weekend- as 'lazy' as I feel I have been, was hopefully worthwhile.
After lengthy home remedy for allergies, lots of not-so-fancy stretching, deep breathing, & heat- I finally am beginning to feel relief. Yeah, my plans were 'ruined' but at least I spent that time with my family- regardless if nothing real eventful happened!
To the evening ahead, and the week in front of us all!

Gotta a life?

As a person, TheShellLady tries to keep an open mind and positive attitude as often as humanly possibly! So comforting to know that there are others out there in this BIG world that have never made one mistake, had one problem, or forgot to kiss their dog goodbye. Geez, how funny! I hope they have a better day tomorrow...
Walk a day in someone's else's shoes, you'll probably want your own back real quick!

As always, keep it simple..& have an extraordinary day!
Life's storm
Getting along thereafter..

Mommies inspiration for the day!

For my 'mommies' (or anyone that plays that role)...
Remember this today!
"IF you ever feel unappreciated, exhausted, fed up with eating cold food, or just plain done...You'll only feel that way if you make yourself believe it! You all have a very important job to do... So don't let that mole of laundry turn into a mountain, keep it lively & fun...someone really does appreciate it even if they don't say it often enough."
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sculpting tomorrow's leaders!
SEA more!

No matter the price, Father's all give the best they have to offer when they have it to give! So, whatever you give 'The World's Greatest Dad' - make sure it's from the bottom of your beautiful heart & soul! (Hugs, kisses & other 'good stuff' count too!)

Ok! Anew day!

Please know, I as a little person, know I stir and share some deep messages that just may tug at your heart strings. Sometimes when we hurt, are in pain, struggling in any way...It also can bring out that strife. Totally completely out! I know very well we all make mistakes, disappoint the ones we Love, fight & really hurt the ones that we truly love & live for most. Families, partners on any level, and other significant others in life's path...we all can be down right mean, spiteful, & bitter. We're human...we hate. However, we all passionately LOVE too!
So, just so your a little lighter today...remember if you're currently going thru torment & pain- or true hell in your mind, heart, or soul's...run like crazy! You can prevail and get out FAST if you make a conscience decision that you truly hate being there!

Run towards the light. It may lead you to the Way, Light, & Truth you're really seeking. Running away from the light with only bring more darkness. Don't go there! It's ALWAYS a bad place. Learn to run as fast as you possibly can to whatever light! Light, (illuminating) can if you seek, help you find pure peaceful light even in the darkest of nights.
SEA the light!
Be lifted...

Wise men & women

Going to 'Try' to make this a quick one...
In my personal journey, some of the wisest, most respected, and loved teachers in my lifetime all did something...
They knew when, what exact second, moment in time to Fall Silent. Discerning that..that knowledge, that patience, that true love, is a real true gift! The weight I felt as a 'child' when those people in my path would truly Fall Silent, brought out a passion, a fire inside me!
They knew exactly what they were doing! They were sculpting me as a person and individual. At times it just confused me, or worse yet, anger towards those very same people I loved the most. It also secretly, deeply, drove me to figure stuff out for myself. Like I said, they knew perfectly well what they were doing!
Just have to sit back and giggle inside or out, & thank what I believe in that they were used for this purpose.
Found these cute pins y'all might like regarding this! I as a small person in this BIG world, really hope y'all enjoy it!
Live with purpose. Sometimes it's best to let a bigger purpose drive us to endless possibilities we never could have predicted!

The pins are on one of my boards to reference & give credit.
