Country ham, beef side frying on the grill, moonshine cooking in the nearby still, guitars jamming late in to the night, in harmony with whip-poor-will, at dusk’s darkening light, singing his good night songs, Mourning dove joins in not too long, with his sweet cooing coming strong, the scents, the smells, with family ties, the wonders of Southern Lullabies. Peace, and love and all of that, old men sing, while old ladies sat, together gabbing all night long, singing sweet harmony songs, of crying, lying, cheating, dying, still letting go so we all can again know. Love. – deborahmills (c) 2016 Southern Lullabies.

Life is hard, full of ups, downs, disappointments, hurts, mishaps, so that we just get more frustrated rather than let our minds go toward the good things. Father sol, the Sun, is shining with the crisp cool breezes of Fall, while kitty sits on our lap, we can still find a way to smile. Look at this moment in time. Yesterday’s worries are still here, but in this moment, we can chase away the blues, the fears, if we take a moment to just breath. yes, we will still need to know the future, prepare for the future. Yes we will still need to go into the foray with strength, power, to clear the obstacles out of our path to our dreams. in this moment let’s stop, take the time to hope, feel loved, and know that our dreams will come. And dream. Dream on, Dream Big, Dream.
