Thursday Inspo – # 98 – Secret

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Horse secret

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is secret and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from the Beatles’ “Do You Want to Know a Secret?”

Listen, do you want to know a secret?
Do you promise not to tell?
Whoa-oh-oh, closer
Let me whisper in your ear
Say the words you long to hear
I’m in love with you, ooh

♾♾♾

Tell someone a secret

It’s not a secret anymore

It spreads like wildfire

And before you know it

It comes back to you

Wearing new garb

Dressed in fancy clothes

♾♾♾

Thursday Inspo # 97 – Rich

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Luxury home

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is rich and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl.”

You’re a rich girl, and you’ve gone too far
Cause you know it don’t matter anyway
You can rely on the old man’s money
You can rely on the old man’s money

~*~

Rich beyond measure

Wealth that cannot be counted

A heart that is contented

Had something so precious

That the wealthiest in the land couldn’t claim to!

Thursday Inspo # 96 – Hide

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Cat hiding in jungle

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is hide and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from the Beatles’ “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away.”

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say
Hey, you’ve got to hide your love away

~*~

Hide in plain sight, be invisible by being ordinary

People look to taunt and make fun of those who are different

Don’t give them a chance to pick on you or catch you

These had been the words of wisdom he grew up on

And now he saw other kids being bullied and tormented

And felt that he should give them the same advice

But then he thought, why make them cowards and defeatists

Why not teach them to defend themselves and stand strong

As he went forward to give courage to a small cowed down boy

Thursday Inspo # 95 – Shoes and Things I love in the month of February # 13

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Fancy shoes

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is shoes and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from the Eagles’ “Those Shoes.”

God knows you’re lookin’ good enough
But you’re so smooth and the world’s so rough
You might have somethin’ to lose
Oh, no pretty mama
What you gonna do in those shoes?

~*~

Shoes!

Bane of my life!

I cannot wear anything that confines my flat feet, I need them to be left free to breathe. I have spend so much time, money and effort on trying to get comfortable walking shoes only to find out that they either give me blisters or blue and bruised toes.

Some I could return to understanding retailers others had to be donated. And finally I have sworn off trying to get walking shoes or closed shoes for winter.

So what do I wear when I go walking, or when it is snowing outside and it is prudent to wear socks?

Fitflops !

These are podiatrist approved open shoes and have special soles which give arch support. Here are a few of them:

So I have bought them in lots of colors and have hoarded them on sales as they are pretty expensive otherwise.

People are often surprised to see me walking in these without socks even in snow, but I cannot tolerate any other type of foot wear.

Paula has asked us to share something we love, for each day of the month of February.

This is also my love # 13 for the month of February.

FitFlops!

❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thursday Inspo # 93 – Flow

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Mountain stream

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration

This week’s theme is flow and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from the Bellamy Brothers “Let Your Love Flow.”

Just let your love flow like a mountain stream
And let your love grow with the smallest of dreams
And let your love show
And you’ll know what I mean, it’s the season

~*~

She opened her closet once again and touched her fine silk gown. It was so beautiful. The fabric was so smooth that it flowed like water on touch.

Tomorrow…..

She smiled a satisfied smile. Tomorrow I’ll wear this dress and Max will surely notice me not as a friend but as a woman. I will look my best and will stand out in that crowd. He will ask me to dance with him and we will be the envy of every couple.

Her phone pinged and a message appeared on the screen.

“I needed you to be the first one to know as you’re my best friend. Cynthia has agreed to be my wife! Congratulate me! Max”

Tears flowed from her eyes as her dreams lay shattered into tiny fragments.

Thursday Inspo # 92 – Flowers

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Alligator flowers

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is flowers and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Neil Diamond’s “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.”

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When I come through the door at the end of the day

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

There was a bunch of wildflowers by the door

Tied with a blue ribbon, no card or name attached

She picked them and held them close to her heart

Every day, without fail these flowers appeared by her door

She could guess it was some who admired her secretly

And though she often tried to find out who it was

All her effort yielded no results, till one day

She caught sight of a man leaving the flowers

It was the homeless guy in the park she often helped

He wanted to show his gratitude or perhaps something more

But she never showed him that she knew it was him

This strange courtship continued for many months

One day he knocked and gave her the flowers himself

He was dressed well and now had a job as well

Now he could tell her how much he admired her

Umbrella rain boots

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is umbrella and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Train’s “Umbrella.”

Now that it’s raining more than ever
Know that we’ll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

➰➰➰➰➰➰

How many umbrellas do you own?

None, when I need them!

How many have you bought?

Ten maybe more

Where do they all disappear to?

The same place where my socks go to. A land where it never rains.

Blueberry pancakes

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is breakfast and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Deep Blue Something’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

And I said what about Breakfast at Tiffany’s
She said I think I remember the film
And as I recall I think we both kind of liked it
And I said well that’s the one thing we’ve got

➰➰➰➰➰

Come over for breakfast, she invited

But it’s too early in the day, I replied

I love meeting friends over breakfast, she said

It’s early enough for the day’s troubles to bother me yet

I liked her logic and joined her for a relaxed meal

Now I too, prefer to go out with my friends for breakfast

As the troubles that are yet to come, are easily tackled

With a good breakfast in my belly and laughter ringing in my ears

( I do love going out for breakfast with friends and it is a great way to start the day!)

Thursday Inspo – Call

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Redhead telephone

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is call and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Blondie’s “Call Me.”

Call me (call me) on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me (call me) I’ll arrive
You can call me any day or night

➰➰➰➰➰

I have done all the listening

Now I will only heed the call of my heart

I will follow my ambitions my desires

Living how others want me to, hasn’t brought any happiness

Now it is time for me to do with my life, what I please

Rock ocean

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is rock and the image is above. Here’s a snippet of song from Def Leppard’s “Rock of Ages.”

Rise up gather round
Rock this place to the ground
Burn it up, let’s go for broke
Watch the night go up in smoke

A miracle needs faith

Faith strong like a rock

Rock that anchors our life

Life of giving purpose to our existence

Existence that is a miracle in itself
