I Tossed and Turned a Little


Just a Feeling

One I can't explain

At least at this moment

You feel down

There is no reason that you know of

It's your sixth sense reminding you

Somethings up ?

So now we look and watch the world around us

We talk about things in our life

Discuss them one by one

The weather is rain

I love the rain

So it's not that

In my family we heard sad news one of my aunts

Diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer

She has anywhere from three to six months to live

Until now she was very healthy

She is on my mind

I had a few days to reflect on my feelings

So my love goes out to the whole family

In such a difficult time

My body is sore but it is my norm

My doctor has noticed some arthritis

I try to do more stretching

It helps

From my work I get elbow and wrist pain

Tennis elbow from too much of the same activity

All these things play into my big picture

A manager I really liked

Left for a better job

Wishing him only the best

We plan on keeping in touch

My wife is healthy

Both our jobs are secure

Even the problems I had with water in our cellar

Are being taken care of

As my day unpeels like a perfect right banana

I will enjoy all I see and feel

Recording what I see and hear

Sharing many thoughts that develop and take shape

Only to make my life great

Tamara Yancosky Moore If we stay positive even the toughest times won't last. Finding people like you make life fun on rainy days. The sounds of rain are so relaxing. The idea that rain can hit you in any spot for miles is incredible. I know hard it is to water my grass and plants. Thank you for reading and sharing.Hope we have many more things in common.

Gypsy Rose Lee I will count my blessings more often. It is funny how the most important things can slip our minds. It is always so nice to hear from people on HubPages. It makes life even more special. I love reminders all the time. May you have an exciting day. Thank you so much.

This is a very positive poem, and I enjoyed reading it! Btw, I love the rain, too!

Big Hugs,

One of the best ways to fall asleep and calm down counting blessings.

MsDora I start each morning feeling great it's just when I leave my bed things happen. Maybe I should stay in bed longer. My wife says that's not the answer. I do love to sleep. Well I am up and around now and look forward to a beautiful morning and the most delightful afternoon and an extraordinary night. Let's see how that translates into real life. My problems are mild compared to so many other people but they still rock my world in some good and bad ways. In the end there has to be a silver lining. I think differently I think it's gold. Have a super day and may new and old blessings fill your heart and soul. Thank you for reading and sharing. Every word means so much to me.

I'm sorry to hear about your aunt. And arthritis is so painful. You've expressed life's irritations and difficult times well my friend. I share them with you.

Great! Things are better today, Alleyuia! Check out Vitamin D. So important! Or take a magnesium supplement if you live in the fast lane. Go for short walks. Of course, none of this may be necessary. Watch the stressors. Peace bro and nice blog as usual. More upbeat and so I'm happy for you

Counting our blessings yields a more peaceful sleep for sure. Nice.
