taking a walk on the trail
my son chases him
Today is my blogging anniversary. I’ve been chasing this lifestyle for 6 years now. I have enjoyed it and I plan to continue. Life has not gone where I wanted it to, and I’ve been hit with quite a few sad surprises that have affected my writing this last year. Depression wants to creep in and take over, but I am finding ways to combat that. Surprisingly this time around, writing has not been my main outlet. Prayer and meditation have been. Prayer has always been a part of my life, but rarely the main part. For the last year, daily prayer (as in Quiet Time that lasts for an hour or more) and reading Christian self-help inspirational books, and caring for my son (of course!) has been my main focus. But I am writing here and there.
The haiku above is one of my newest. I hope to start writing more regularly soon. I plan to blog more than once a week from here on out. Thanks for reading, and leaving me such great comments! I hope you all are writing regularly and are brave enough to share it.

This was written for a National Haiku Writing Month prompt on Facebook. I don’t know why I haven’t shared it yet.
I’m at 698 followers for this blog. If you’re reading this and not following me yet, think about making this the week, and help me get to 700. Encourage friends to follow me and help me get to 1,000 followers!
first snow fall
I forgot to post this at the first snowfall in my area because I was at work and it only snowed for like 10 minutes before it switched back into rain. I hope you can enjoy it today!
drip drop drop
quickly becomes a roar
How is your summer going? Are you getting enough rain, too much? How are your flowers and animals doing?
