Sometimes, we find ourselves walking in the wrong direction at a good clip, so preoccupied that the gap in the pavement trips us, tumbling us in. Darkness seizes. Uncertainty and fear join in the huddle. Our bodies paralyzed by fear’s powerful grasp. But thoughts penetrate in the depths of our minds, how strength has always been a constant in our lives where weakness only an acquaintance. So, with great mental bandwidth, our fingers grip each little crevice of gloom like a seasoned rock climber. We move, inching upward, finding our way out as darkness begins to dim, and rays from the big golden ball in the sky warm our shoulders. We revel in our accomplishment, never again underestimating our capabilities, as we joyfully hold the future in our hands.

Enjoy your weekend, Feel empowered, and a Big Thanks to all of you for reading, liking, and commenting throughout the years.

      1. My daughter had a wonderful first-grade teacher. She wrote on the chalkboard “You can do it!” There were a couple of things I couldn’t do. My daughter would say, Mom, you can do it!! πŸ’–

      2. Exactly, Lauren! Now that my daughter is grown, with her savvy tech skills and research, she can tell me about many things I don’t know about. 😍😊

  2. Fabulous metaphors, Lauren.
    You are an inspiration. I realized that when I read, “More Than Coffee”.
    I see two other poetry books. If they are on Kobo, I’ll read one in awhile! There is a small pile in my Kobo reader to get through first!
