Smile…Gina’s Favorites

Smile…Gina’s Favorites
by Gina Valley

My pack and I have been traveling.  We’ve visited family, and spent lots of fun time being together.

Now, we are on our last leg of our journey home.

As I have planned to be busy being unbusy and unplanned until we return home, I’ve gone through my posts and queued up favorites to keep you in giggles while I’m hanging with my pack.

Grateful To Be Grateful

Grateful To Be Grateful
by Gina Valley

My plan for this week was for it to be one of rest and relaxation for me.  A time to spend extra time with my children and the rest of my family.

My pack and I are spending time together traveling this week.

Rest

Soft and fragrant

Light and pure

Sparks my own

Seen in a mirror

 

Close my eyes

To open my mind

Dance of dreams

No passage of time

 

The patter of magic

Soft footfalls

Brilliant spaces

Tiny halls

 

Sparkles and stars

Shimmer and shine

All bring stories

Laughter mine

 

Enter thoughts too big to see

Hear them clear and brought to me

 

As I carry off my dreamed gifts dear

I know

Again

I’ll be drawn back here

Love

I stand alone and wait for you

Always

You are there

Thoughts of you sustain my breath

I am because of you

Tears come

You heal my soul

Joy springs

My spirit soars

Behind me trails of your beauty

Before me your light

Within me truth of you grows smiling

Hope flows through me

Always you
