The shuttle experience may not have gone as hoped, but there is one thing this little tiger can say for certain, his mom kicks it harder than your mom. Image Copyright Tadalena Warner

Pancakes on Friday

31 Aug

It is Friday, and I’ve been craving pancakes for the past three days.

Why didn’t you just make some at home and save the cost of coming all the way out here?

Because I happen to like their pancakes.  Madison makes the best pancakes for three counties and besides, we haven’t seen one another in nearly a month.  I thought it might be nice to share some conversation over coffee and breakfast, which happens to be pancakes for me.

I know, it’s just that we are both struggling here.

Shush, I am paying.

Yes, but…

But nothing.  How’re the kids?

“Pick up, pick up, pick up!”

“Hello”

“Gloria, you won’t believe this, but I found it!”

“Found what?”

“I found it, you know the it we’ve been looking for.”

“You said that last time and it turn out to be nothing more than a porthole to the sales department at Sears and Roebuck no less.”

“I’m telling you, it’s the it we’ve been looking for.  Get the guys and meet me at the corner of 5th and Madison.”

2hrs later

“What took you so long?”

“Well….”

“Never mind, it doesn’t matter.  Where are the others?”

“They…”

“OH MY STARS…”

“What?”

Footprints

When spring comes upon the glen, I see the deer footprints from when
Winter’s wrath left its trail, secret passages from whence it fell
Now, dawn has come and shown the light, clearing shadows bringing life

Second Chance

Second Chance
By Tadalena Warner

A flicker of diamonds in his eyes
My heart quickens as I see
Is he perchance looking at me?
Lovely he is with warm golden skin
Heaven sent filling me with bliss again
Could he be? Oh how I wish it so
If it be, then I never let him go
Is he wondering the same?
Perhaps, he will ask my name
Or, he will look again my way
I would love to hear him say
Do you live close by?
Oh yes, I would reply
Smiles exchanged and glances too
Between two strangers who never knew
Today would be the day a new friend is found
Together, they have common ground
A love for the Father and all things plentiful
Love, laughter, and a joy from above
You see, one has all they need in God whom we love
Trust in Him and you will see
What treasures He will bestow upon thee
He gives you all you desire of Him
He loves you more than any man
Trust in Him and know that I tell you no lie
The Heavenly Father is always by your side
And when you are weary and weak
He carries you along bearing the weight
So I ask you my friend to take my hand
Together we shall fall in love again
With Him at our side we shall not want
Through Him our love will flourish
Becoming one for all to see
The truth in God is all we need

LOVE

LOVE
By Tadalena Warner

Love as though you’ll die tomorrow
Love from open arms not borrowed
Love as though it will return
Love my friend is what you have earned
Love bestowed from an open heart always flows
Love given freely forever grows
Love, I beseech you, come to me
Love me forever and never leave

Happy Birthday my dear
Happy birthday indeed
Happy birthday my heart
Forever happiness my sweet
Forever joy comes to you
Forever love clung like glue
Mommy loves you beyond
A love she cannot deny
Mommy loves the angel
Her angel in white
