The weekend was long enough

Reaching Out…

The weekend was long enough that I got plenty of rest in,
In between mixing and mingling with distant and visiting kin.

We started our Memorial Celebration Friday morning by supporting a Purple heart troupe
that was posted up in front of Basha’s hoping to receive shoppers left-over loot.

I was not shopping at Basha’s, but when I saw the Veterans booth in place – I dipped in
to buy a bottle of Dr.Pepper and get additional change – to make a veteran grin.

As I inserted the folded cash, the veteran began to “appreciate shower,”
and told me that ‘God thinks as much of me as he does’ and then gave me a paper flower.

That was an awfully nice thing to say – a gesture fit to adore,
with humility I smiled, knowing the whole while, “Pshhh! God thinks way more!lol!

What a break-out beginning, I proceeded to celebrate the weekend in fashion
by THANKING every veteran I came across; a genuine and humbling action.

I gave my life a little more thought and realized there was more that I could do,
so I called my USAF Vet dad and offered him to relocate over a state or two.

Dad’s permanent address is still in Texas, and he could use a newer view.
The weekend was long enough for me to not only convince Dad, but his wife too.

I know this is only the beginning but if the weight of Memorial Day is really that strong,
t’is the perfect time to do all that you can to say thanks. Charity begins at home.

God bless me and my good heart, Dad accepted the offer and is gearing up to go.
In a few short months, I will return home, with Dad and Stepmom in tow.

And here we go – life and her challenges will be new again.
The weekend was long enough that I went for the ‘off-the-cuff’ #WIN.

No details are written in stone – this all happened on yesterday.
Today is a win – I’m excited to begin – manifesting good all the way.

I’m not just doing this to help dad out – I’m doing this with my own future in mind.
Careful — how you treat your elders, for in the future, such is yours in kind.

Alas, the weekend is over and Tuesday is duly staring me in the face,
I’m Qui
Happy about it all. I’m on my mark, and ready-set, for this race.

Running for the #WIN
at this new weeks begin!

A Happy Monday

November 26th is a special day for me,
it is the 23rd annual of my first born she.

Her name is Quionja & for her I am blessed.
She was the inspiration for my building a nest.

And so it is Monday, another day of celebration,
in a month that surely holds a lot of parallel relations:

The president was re-elected and then THANKSGIVING came,
This 2012 November is encased in a unified frame.

I am thankful for the sunrise, that has yet to do so in A-Z.
It’s only 6:29 am (now) and the sun won’t rise until 6:43.

I’ll be looking to the sky at the moment of its dawn.
I was up at 4am – tis when I ceased my yawn.

I’m bright eyed and busy tailed, my mind is fixed on the go.
I’ve already done my meditation and had my cup of morning jo.

I even caught a little Creflo Dollar – he comes on promptly at 5.
I absorbed the word of the Lord and am Happy to be alive.

It’s already Monday again as we slide into the later of the month.
And I am without complaint. I’ve been loving life a bunch.

I’ve got bootcamp to tend to at about 9 am sharp.
This fitness kick is beginning to stick & is duly good for my heart.

It’s also toning my thighs, my arms and tightening up my belly.
I will still remain my jovial same, but without the cellulite jelly.

Hey!

Here’s to the sun arising and making this another funday,
I’m Qui
A very thankful she, wishing you a Happy Monday!
