H is for . . .

I have been struggling a little today, with a blank screen and a blank mind. This will be a week of juggling too many balls at once, and I am feeling overwhelmed. When I posted on Facebook that I had nothing to say and no “H” words to write about, my dear friend Beth suggested that perhaps I need to write about the word HELP! I took that idea, and then borrowed a little from the inspiration of the wonderful Kathy McCullough at Reinventing the Event Horizon who has been sharing her fabulous art that reveals so much of the pain and beauty in her psyche. I thought I’d take to color and paper, and see where my mind brought me. This is the result:

H is for the Hills that I have yet to climb.

His for the Hopelessness that builds inside.

H is for Happiness I yearn for and Hope to find.

H is for the Heaven in my daughter’s Hazel eyes.

H is for the Home and the Hearth of my dreams

H is for the Hurt that I try to abate.

H is for Hunger that I Hope to feed.

H is for the Humor that Helps me Live.

    How beautiful, Lisa! It’s so fun to see you marry the image witht the words. Sometimes simple honesty is all we have, and truly a precious offering to the world. I love it, my friend!

    One of my favorite sayings has always been,
    How do you eat an elephant?
    One bite at a time.
    This is always a good reminder when I’m overwhelmed with life, to slow down and take life one day at a time, or minute at a time, if needed. And divide my duties into bite sized chunks!
    By the way, I like the new look of your blog. The colors are soothing and they flow very nicely with your picture!

      I’ll work on small bites, but now that Sarah is in the Elephant Chorus, maybe I need another animal. LOL 😉

    Have you ever thought about writing what it’s like to teach? I really enjoyed your series on the production…to me working with kids is really a tough job- would love to hear the stories.

      You just gave me an idea. I have a couple of posts about teaching, some for the kids classes but most for the college courses that have been plaguing me this semester. I admire teachers who work with children all day long. I wouldn’t be able to do it. 🙂

    I think you came up with a good H-post. 🙂

    We all have those days where we are frustrated in our efforts. The secret is just to not give up.

    Good luck!
