balancing act


do you ever feel like
you're standing on one skinny little leg
trying to balance 
the weight of the world?

I hope your world will soon be more peaceful.

Yes--most definitely, it happens more often than my skinny legs can handle at times. haha... I aspire to be as balanced as this little bird... May I have the grace to stand talk & unwavering on the skinny leg! ;o) Happy Day, Leslie ((HUGS))

At times I do. I then have to pull myself in to a quiet corner to can my footing. :) Have a good weekend. xo

I balance so carefully I forget to breath-it all requires so many life skills! Have a good week-end.
