I am a writer,
Artist, and photographer,
Or at least I call
Myself by these lofty names,
Do I really qualify?
Sometimes I struggle
With my creativity,
It is not easy
To make new things from nothing,
Image, words resist capture.
I endlessly toil
To produce something worthwhile,
Never quite knowing
Whether I will reach other
Hearts and minds through my crafting.
I am not perfect,
My work is so incomplete,
But I continue
Trying to bring my vision
Life for other’s enjoyment.
I may not achieve
Fame and fortune in my life,
But I hope I touch
Someone’s heart and soul making
A difference in their life.

I am grateful:
1. I was able to share this special day with my Mom.
2. God has chosen to let me be here in Mom’s waning years.
3. We had a delicious late lunch at Hudson’s.
4. Mom was able to go in Wal-Mart with me today.
5. I managed to write something even though I felt less than inspired.
Another Saturday fades away… I hope you spent your time with those you love. If you are not too busy, and even if you are, take a few moments to engage your creativity. I promise you will not be sorry you used your imagination. It will energize you and perhaps surprise you. You have great resources inside, if you will only tap into them.
