happy/sad

"So, this is my life.
And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad
and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."
Stephen Chbosky

It has been a sad time...
and a happy time....
and I am struggling daily to reason it out....

So...
my projects sit...
in the sun...
beautiful ideas..
and colors... and threads...

they sit and wait....
until things are sorted out...
until the sad and the happy merge once again....
into all happy~

I have a tendency to keep things...
hard things... jarred up...
I am letting a few things tumble out of that jar...
for now... in hopes that prayers will be answered....
August...time for blackberries~
everything is not black and white....
but how wonderful it would be...
if it was all blackberries and cream...............

~like a watermelon~

"But happiness is not always loud and bright and crowded.
Happiness ripens like a watermelon,
sweet and rosy on the inside
with only a thin top layer altogether free of small black pits.
And, like a watermelon,
the whole thing can be covered with a plain dark rind."

E.L.Konigsburg


It is July...
it is summer....
and happiness ripens with each sweet watermelon
                                                                                                  
 
 
















not too loud....
just bright enough...





















this watermelon was made...
for a perfect little girl..
who is as sweet and rosy on the inside... 

as she is on the outside...
and there is a thin layer...
altogether free of tiny black pits~ 

where there is a layer of natural sweetness...
Now.. really...
what could be better than not being loud...
or crowded...
and being able to savor the sweet taste of melon...
right down to the dark rind?
