MY MONDAY THOUGHT:

MY MONDAY THOUGHT:
A new week has started again,
Full of joy and hope.
Although there is a nip in the air,
My morning walk I did cope.
 
My thought on this Monday,
Is something my doctor said to me.
When asked if I'd heard from my family,
My wonderful family of three.
 
When I replied I had not.
This to me she replied.
"Forget about them Yvonne,"
You only have one life she sighed.
 
How can one forget one's children?
Those into this world you brought?
Seeing them through their bad times,
Also the happiness they brought?
 
To say I am heartbroken,
I wouldn't be telling a lie.
But I must have some hope in life,
As the weeks and months pass swiftly by.
 
So is my doctor right?
Forget them at all cost?
I pointed out to her....how would she feel
If her entire family she lost.
 
I'll soldier on relentlessly,
Not feel sorry for myself.
For I know in this world.
I have  three children.......my entire wealth.

  1. Forgetting isn't the easiest thing at times, can't imagine it with kids.

  2. You can't ever stop loving your kids, but you have to find your own happiness. It's a tough line to walk. Sending positive energy and good thoughts your way.

  5. It is impossible to forget about family. Even for me...there's a family member I do want to forget about, but I can't. Not completely.

  6. I wish I had the answer for you, Yvonne. Would they talk with you about their behavior? Why they're acting the way they are? My prayers are with you that God will answer and bring your family together.

  7. Think positive with full of hopes. Good feelings have a way of making it happen the way you want it. It works that way. It takes time but it will happen in the not too distant future. Have seen it happen, Yvonne! And there'll be lots of tears of joy! You'll see!
