Come Sit By Me A While: My Life I Share.

Well today maybe a little cold but a day to savour that fresh Christmas air;oh how I inhale and treasure.

Each moment,each wonder which is so selflessly shared by our amazing Mother Nature.

From when I was knee high I have loved the countryside from valleys to mountains and forests to streams.Each one filled with a magical beauty;it has to be savoured to truly appreciate the awesome wonder.

Fields are not just green expanses;as you walk through open your eyes;your ears and most importantly your heart.

My childhood days were very troubled ; very bleak but one thing I always knew was that Mother Nature's kingdom would always be the same .

Along with my beautiful Beagle Lassie I would go exploring and would spend hours in the bosom of Mother Natures unconditional and beautiful love for all in her kingdom.

This has stayed with me and today I feel such a strong connection with The Cherokees which led to me publishing my first Ebook 'Sunshine Ray and I'.A story of a little girl abused and being rescued by the Cherokees and my Beagle Lassie of yesterday has become Laddie the wolf.

Now then didn't I tell you that our warm thoughts would keep us warm and isn't this beautiful Christmas sunshine so magical and what better time to contemplate and be thankful for each blessing in our lives.

Here are our mugs of tea and coffee, also some Mince pies and biscuits.

Let's just forget those waistlines for today. Now then are we all sitting comfortably?

Now then I shall begin ........................................................


The dawn is breaking

as I make my way

To Mother Nature's Kingdom

come what may.............................

I sit on a hill

higher than all

counting my blessings

so many to call..........................

By my side lay Laddie

keeping me warm

my heart so proud

each blessing so tall..............

The snow capped hills

awesome in beauty

each one I share

my heart so happy............

My family I see

from way up high

Oh how I love them

so rich my cry..................

Each shrub so colourful

but also hardy

it doth withstand

those days so windy.............

Golden sunrise

so warm and inspiring

Heartbeats quicken

each heart inviting............................


I walk through the forest

treading so softly

mesmerised by surrounding magical tones.

My Laddie by my side never to leave.

Together we taste that

new day's dawning;

the ground so crisp

in a winter's promise

our hearts beating

as one forever.

As we walk through the midst of a sleeping haven

I know I am safe

yes safe and sound.

Sunrise passes as we sit so high;

each fluffy white cloud

I can almost touch.

Another day has stirred

as Ireturn to my haven

surrounded by beauty

as Mother Nature

caresses my heart

as I hold

each blessing

each wonder

each love

so close to my heart!!!

The air so warm

from deep true love

in each eager heart.

We protect

we love

we share

we care.

My man returns

my heart brimming over.

Our very own love story

so treasured

in tender pride;

a reality

which I share with you all.

My love now doth fly

just like that bird on the wing;



Trembling breaths

Oh how amazing


Fear not,open your heart

All my days I share with thee

Learning how to love

Learning how to trust


I feel so rich,so honoured,so humble

Never ever to be hurt again


Love is a wonder to fill each heart

Over and over again

Volumes of emotions flying high

Everyday I love thee more.


I love

With all my heart

In each wondrous moment

My heart never knowing such bliss

I hold thee close to my heart forever

While allowing our love to breathe

Companionable silence

So so precious

I love.


One love

To be moulded

With sweet gentle touches

We sprinkle with blessings so clear

Sweetly caressing that first gentle kiss

Flying on the wings of a dove

Gentle breezes swelling

Oh how sacred

One love.


My heart

flies high...................

I have found my niche............

I have tasted true love

a love to thrive eternally..................

I now expect.............

I now accept...............

I will always appreciate...............

      I am so in gratitude for this hub, Eddy. It is so sweet it's brought tears to my eyes. The poetry is superb; the video exquisite; the images of the Native Americans poignant and the message of love sweet and heartfelt.

      I did feel the calm, peace, and love that flowed from your words and video. Many blessings...Up /U/I/A/B and shared.

      I live and breathe for the touch of the outdoors, and what the lake brings me each and every day. When I grew up, I had a dog that went everywhere with me. I was in the woods with the animals, even then...

      You know from my other comments what an affinity I hold toward my Native American heritage. I, like you never took Mother Nature for granted when I was younger and spent many days exploring. My sincerest of blessings for the bleak childhood you experienced but you once again make me humble by the inner strength you display in the face of such loss.

      I am glad to know you. Thanks for being here.

      And for me it was always the mountains, Eddy; there I could find happiness and peace of mind. Surround me with that beauty, a safe blanket that kept my heart warm.

      Lovely as always; I love that we are paying no attention to our waistlines today. Could I have another biscuit please?
