Lost in Thoughts - 1st in the Good Thoughts Project

"Good Thoughts Project"

This is the first entry in the "Good Thoughts Project" created by Jo Goldsmith (Jo_Goldsmith11), who has made it her goal to help others achieve recognition for their work and accomplishments.

Born from the Good Words Project, Jo will be testing to see how well we learned the “Good Words” and use them to live by.

Note to Jo: I am not sure this is exactly what you meant for the “Good Thoughts” if not please let me know.

Shortly after starting the Good Thoughts project Jo Goldsmith became ill and was unable to continue with the Good Thoughts. Today she is getting back on track.

It is my hope that all her Hubber friends will jump on board with a Good Thought or two.


Purpose of the "Good Thoughts" project

Purpose: Journal of recorded thoughts about our feelings or emotional reactions to a weekly selected quote, song or reading that is posted for the week __ Jo Goldsmith

I took the Song 'A moment like this to be the first prompt.''


A moment like this!

This could not be better for me. The day after Jo Posted what her new creation would be "The Good Thoughts" project, while listening to Kelly Clarkson singing ‘A moment like this’. Well! I have had many moments like this.

The good thoughts, the miracle of life, brought back all the memories of moments like this:

  • Tuesday July 14, 2015 when my great granddaughter Kenzie was born.

  • January 21, 2013 when Kenzie’s brother my great grandson Caden was born

  • When each of my grandchildren were born

  • When my two sons were born,

As Jo writes, "Project Good Thoughts Purpose: Journal of recorded thoughts about our feelings or emotional reactions to a weekly selected quote, song or reading that is posted for the week

These are the moments that last forever in the snap shot of our mind's gallery of memories.

— Jo Goldsmith

Lost in thoughts

In a daydream or two

Contemplating my first meeting you

Can't wait to meet you

Precious little girl

And welcome you to

Your bright new world

In your pretty little face

You can see how beautiful the human race

And absolutely nothing brings more wonder

Than gazing upon a baby's face.

Caden

I did not forget you

You are my only great grandson

And you will always be a very special one

No matter how many more there are to come

Beloved Granddaughter

Now you can see

Why you are so very special to me

With the birth of your two babies

Now you can see

Why Kenzie reminded me

Of this long ago memory







Me, Mom and Grandma (on my father's side)

My Grandma, Mom and me to you Kenzie

Now you can put together A family tree

In the sequence from above

The next one in this line is me (the baby), your great grandma Shyron

And your great, great grandma Mae (my mother)

Starting with or going back in time

is your great, great, great grandma Saphronia (my father's mother)

      Very nice hub shyron.

      Writing and etching such moments in memory ,

      bringing togetherness forever even when in rough weathers.

      is the way to go.

      Birth of a son, daughter, niece or a grand one.

      is such a special moment,

      engaging everyone with beautiful feelings,

      in-store for seasons.

      The idea of documenting those feelings is really great one. I think that one should do that for the sake of happiness and bonding of family member for ever.

      I too have video documented my childs growing years and feel great to play them.

      The videos / photo albums / audio recordings that are made should be well planned out so that they become little gems that can be enjoyed for ever by all.

      Ann, thank you so much for the complements, and comments.

      Yes it is awesome to have these memories. I think I read in someone's hub that is what life is "memories" and I say make them good ones.

      Blessings and Hugs my dear friend

      This is beautiful. It's so good to have those moments in time which surface in our memory and make life so precious. Like you, I have grandchildren to cherish and each birth is a new wonder to me (no great-grandchildren yet though - you're way ahead of me there!).

      Having such moments to share and to cherish makes us better people and, I think, makes us more caring. It doesn't have to be children of course; friends and places and accomplishments can do the same thing.

      Well done, Shyron, for this wonderful hub.

      The circle of life is a wonderful thing! I had lunch last week with my 2 new great grandchildren and their mothers. I was so proud just to think about I had helped to produce!

      I have been blessed with a wonderful family, too.

      Loved your poems and the photos.

      One of my great grandmothers going way back was named Sophrenia also. I don't know if she spelled it the same as yours. If I had easy access to the records (in storage, and that's a fun project waiting for me) I would check to see what her last name was. Wouldn't it be something if my Sophrenia and your Saphronia were the same one?

      Beautiful poems and beautiful photos. Voted up and BAI. Pinned to Awesome HubPages, and shared.
