No card just some verses

Hi all, I hope today finds you well and happy.
This morning, I wanted to do something completely different for you.   Since I was quite young I started writing poetry, it wasn't always good, but it was my way of expressing the feelings or emotions that I couldn't speak about.  Later in life I found it therapeutic after my first child had been born with major problems (He has had 28 operations in his life and most of them were before he turned 4.  Please note he is now a strapping man of 31 and gorgeous!).   Well, as you can imagine,  he suffered and so did I but I didn't know how to cope, so I wrote it all in verse.  Some were very dark and miserable and others were just little ditties that cheered me on better days.   Well to cut a long story short, I later found poetry to be a great way to say more than just unspoken words and I started to write little verses etc for the cards I made or sent.  With this in mind, I decided that today I would share some with you that I wrote just a short while ago.  If you like them in any way, please feel free to use them on your cards etc (please see below*). 

No1.  Hugs of Thanks:
The fold in this card
Is a hug just for you
Sent as a Thanks
For all that you do.  

No2.  Gladness:
When you wake in the morning
and right through to the night
May you day be filled with gladness,
pure joy and delight!

No3.  Happiness
We send lots of  'wishes'
and our  'Good luck'  too,
But success and happiness
Are what I wish for You!!

No4. Sympathy 
May hope lift you in time of sorrow
And the warmth of comfort
Begin to ease your pain.
******Thinking of You ****** 

(I would ask just one thing of you, if you do use any of my work, written or creative please remember they remain my property and therefore cannot be used for financial gain and where possible, always referenced to me and linked back to my blog.  Many thanks in advance for your understanding and respect.)  

Well that's it for now.  I will be back later today with my new little craze; well as long as my hairdresser doesn't take too long cutting my locks.  She recently got married and has been away on her honeymoon; so I have eagerly been awaiting her return and all along my hair has gotten more and more out of control.  It now flops better than a tummy in the swimming pool...LOL!!!
I hope today is a good day for you and we get a little bit of sunshine (Where is the warmth? Brrrrr!!) 
Big hugs Linda x

    HI Linda,

    You have certainly had more than your share of adversity in your life. A quote from Mother Theresa comes to mind - " I know God wouldn't give me anything I couldn't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much!" Thanks for sharing your little verses. Look forward to your next post.
    Hugz Christine xx

  2. Hi Linda

  5. How very sweet of you to share your sweet verses, thank you. I used poetry to help me though a very dark period when I was bedridden, as with you some of it was very dark, and others things to cheer me up. I rarely write anything now, you've inspired me to give it a go for the cards I make. I'll link back to you whenever I use yours. So pleased your son is strong and healthy after such a difficult start (for both of you). Hugs lin
