Good News

As I mentioned in my previous post, I had a post op follow up with my Cardiologist yesterday. The good news is he gave me the all clear to go back to work. I knew he would but actually hearing the words and holding that paper in my hands made it so much better.

After I left there, I went to my job to finalize my return to work. I had to call HR and fax the paperwork. Karen needed to know if I had any restrictions pertaining to my duties and I told her I’m not allowed to lift anything heavier than 10 lbs. So if lifting a pen or moving a mouse on my desk and shuffling paper or tapping keys on a keyboard counts…I’m well within the perameters.

I’ll tell you what may be my biggest challenge…staying awake at certain times during the day. Right now I get sleepy sometimes late morning or mid afternoon. It will probably take some fight within to overcome and I know it will not be easy. I’m already trying to make the adjustment but I’m losing the battle. I have to remember that I am still healing and this need to sleep will be with me for awhile.

So am I going back to work too soon? Not at all, because the longer I stay home the more I fall into this routine that is sleeping whenever. Once I start working more I will become stronger to make the adjustment.

The operation I had is very commonplace these days, but for me this is major. If I didn’t have the surgery, I would have developed health issues in the future that would be difficult to overcome as I grow older. I am truly thankful that God brought me through all of this and allowing me to heal at this rapid pace.

The doctors are telling me I am in good health. My heart is strong, my lungs are clear and my blood pressure is good. Still, I know anything can happen in life, no matter what foods we eat or how much we exercise. I am blessed to have this opportunity for new life and I hope I can live up to the task.

Relationships

Him n Her

Many people think, at the cusp of a relationship, it will be all hearts and roses.

Sure the beginning for some if not all, is just that.

Hearts aflutter, butterfly stomachs, star gazed eyes, sweaty palms and minty breaths.

Then there are times when you just don’t know which direction

the relationship is going.

Swoop Arrows

You can’t seem to agree on anything, nor can either of you head in the same direction.

Being on the same page is out of the question. Hormones and testosterone bouncing of the walls,

oozing through pores and doing everything but meshing in unity.

And so it goes, except…..

……sometimes things can really get ugly.

Confusion

Oh, you thought is was bad before? Well just hang on tight because now confusion sets in to a point of

confusion and hands get thrown into the air as if to say…I give up! Not only are you going opposite ways,

but you’re blindly making choices that make no sense other than to get back at the

other or just to be mean….oh yeaaah!!!

It’s just a cluster at this point.

Then something happens that maybe no one expected or hoped it would.

InTheMiddle

You find yourselves meeting in the middle with compromise.

All is not lost after all.

Love is still in the air…really. What happened after the love at first sight

and after the turmoil is what was always there in the midst of confusion.

The middle, the center, the firm foundation that started it all.

Hearts filled with love.

Relationships are like jobs. You have to work them with every tick of time.

Away From You

Away From You

You Came To Me

You came to me as a lamb, gentle

Whispering the desires of my heart

Shown to me as glittering array

Beckoning my soul to gather

You came to me, soft as silk

Soothing to my heart you came

Melting me to submissiveness

You came to me the lioness

Strong in loving ways, a fortress

Withstanding the elements of hindrance

Casting all aside this way and that

You came to me electric

Lighting my heart to a revival’s beat

Static~like with no friction

The flow of current run steadfast

You came to me as a waterfall

Overflowing to a mist refreshing

Washing my stained memories to nothing

A cleansing unfathomable

You came to me purposeful

Knowing only to unselfishly give

To fill a void of destitution

With all that you had, you came to me

What Does Your Heart Say?

The question is in your mind

Knowest thou the answer in thy heart?

Over and over the question plays like a song

Lyrics strum across thy heart with sweet melody

You become lost in thought by the beat

Wrapping yourself with your arms

Just the thought of me

Feeling me in the rhythm

Your heart beats the melody

Still you wonder

Why hast thou resisted in your mind?

When you are lost at sea in me

Craving my presence at the dawn of day

To the dreams of your sleep

So many questions, I do understand

Lest the falling is deep, that is love

Understand I do ~ but

What does your heart say?

Hear me from afar as too my heart sings

I too have the strumming of music within

I dance within my being, longing to hold you

I think not of love with my mind

For my heart resonates to the pitch

Earth shattering quakes it beats

Coming forth from my chest

Containment almost impossible

I need your hand to stay my heart

Hear the explosions as they make way

Steady me to comfort I ask

Acknowledge I do what is in my heart

What say you

What does your heart say?

I Find Comfort In You

There are moments when sadness overshadows

When life’s journey renders turbulence

Try as I might alone to my dismayed accomplishment

To conquer the flush of discouragement

This is when I find comfort in you

Your labor of love relinquishes my agony

The resting of your head to mine stills me

My breath of exhale is extinguished by your kiss

And I look into eyes that speak to me~fear not

The rush of my heartbeat slows to your touch

Your peace encompasses any grief lingered

Restoration is come to me

Because I find comfort in you

Experience My Love

You want to taste of my love

For my love is deeply passionate

Experience my love, it’s all about you

Spread me as soft butter

Fill all nooks and crevices to fullness

I will love you as falling water

Drenching your thirst to satisfaction

My love for you is equal to a budding flower

Slow, definite, and scented

Know my love from the tip of your head

To the curling of your toes

Is it heaven? No, but it is heavenly

Experience my love for rejuvenation of the senses

To awaken the sixth as never before

Musical tones dance in thy mind with pleasure

You will know my soul as loving

Experience my love with throbbing beats

Time over time, again and again

Take with you my love, my sweet

Dance with me in thy head, to the beat of thy heart

 Want of me to be in your arms

Think me not to be away from you

Taste of me in your soul

Experience my love to the fullness of thy receiving

To the fulfillment of thy pleasure, Experience My Love

For it is, all about you
