Watching the match

It does not matter if it is Gaelic, Hurling, Rugby, Soccer,
or Tiddlywinks
It is you against us and winning
is the greatest feeling in the world!

Jubilation is unbridled
Spontaneous leaps to punch the air accompanied by loud whistles
Cries of “Yes!” fill the air
Spirits soar and loud cheering and excited clapping
screams of the passion
with which supporters respond to
“Their” teams positive performance!
Dejection and disbelief
plummet true supporters
to the depths of despair
as their team falls behind
A son tries in vain to comfort his dad
with words of “It’s not that bad…….there is still the next match”
but one fan can’t take any more…………
he leaves before the match is even over

There is nothing like a match
It can carry emotions
to the highest pitch of elation one instant
then crash them to rock bottom the next

Divorce for beginners

You laugh because if you don’t
you might cry

You cope because if you don’t
you might break
The memories – The Good and The Bad
Are yours and will be with you forever……
Then – like a new dawn – you realise
You are Free

That now every choice you make
about your life – is yours alone

Every day becomes not just ‘Another’
but ‘A’ new day

Your world takes on new colour
a new excitement!

You can shake off
all those years of compromise
You can be You again!
Divorce is not just an End
It is also a Beginning………….

Wedding Anniversary with mount B

Wedding Anniversary

Each year together
Like a step on a winding stairway
Full to the brim with memories and emotions
Love and laughter
comfort and excitement
“….do you remember the day”
and “Will I ever forget…”
Some sad times – not forgotten
but easier when shared
And always outnumbered by happier times
Life like a stairway
goes ever on to the future
A future with so much still to enjoy
Together

Making up

This drawing does not need any words at all
except to say…..
Don’t leave it too long
The longer you leave it…..
the harder it gets

Keeping in touch

How many times have you heard the words “I’ll phone you” or “I will write”
How many times have you yourself said those words and not meant them
So many lonely hours spent waiting for that someone to phone or write
Waiting for the phone to ring
or the postman to call
Sometimes the one you want no longer feels the same
Sometimes commitments keep you apart
If you only knew………

It’s all ahead of you

Starting as family is a wonderful time
You can look forward to the day baby is supposed to arrive
Which sometimes ends in either a false alarm or a last minute dash
To choosing a name which you both like and
which does not offend any of either family
and the Christening – Oh Yes! I think a hat IS required and a suit
To making sure baby eats enough of the right food – Starts solids on cue – Grows at the right speed – Is weighed – measured and injected at the right time – Is always wearing the right nappies for it’s gender –
Then when all that has been mastered and you think you are home safe –
Sleepless nights take their toll excused by
“Oh the poor thing has wind” – or “colic” and/or ”teething”
To walking the floor for hours only for baby to wake on touching the pillow
Starting all over again….up and down
And in some cases even resorting to driving the little mite to sleep – in the car!
Then just when they become easier to manage
they run away to school never even looking back!
Yes It’s all ahead of you……………..

Love Story

This drawing is just a little love story
Just like all the other ones
From the beginning of time
it has happened to millions of people
It happens all the time
It can happen in the most unlikely places
between the most unlikely people
and yet it never becomes boring
In fact when it happens
it is like nothing that has ever happened before
and all of us firmly believe it will never end
This one goes like this…….
First, she is alone – He sees her sitting there
He stops and talks – She listens – He helps her up
They walk together – They fall in love
Happy ending

What memories are made of

What memories are made of….
How did you two meet? – Your first kiss?
Where did you go on your first date?
Was it love at first sight?
Do you remember the time we….?
When you find the right person
The One for you
When you know it is forever
Then you have also found
What memories will be made of….

Always look on the bright side of Life

Think positive!

that better days are on the way!
So even when times are hard

make the most of all your days

Practice makes perfect

You climb into one of the cannons
You get shot across the ravine
And hope to fly straight through
the ”Opening” which represents “Success”
On the other side are all your dreams and aspirations
You may be lucky first time
but if you fail you go splat against the rock face!
and fall down to the ground
– now –
if you really want to succeed
you pick yourself up and try again
and again and again  …….
until with enough practice you will achieve your goal
Practice does make perfect
