The Quarter

The man stepped onto the bus, carrying only enough change for just one ride. He tipped his hat to the driver, handed his change, explained he had just enough to get him to the store. The driver held out a hand warmly taking the man's change. "I'll get you there kind sir, except you gave me too much.” The man looked into the driver's eyes as he was handed a shiny new quarter. He quietly took his seat, looking into his hand, pondering how his ride only cost a quarter. For he knew it was fifty cents to ride to the store. He couldn't figure out how he gave too much.

Strength within Mental Health

Effected with isolation, phobias, loss of jobs, loss of friends, even loss of family through divorce or separation.

Pike County Road 325 Good to be home again Quiet fields and bonfires Where your free and alive A long week it’s been Having to survive And It’s sure good To be within your graces To your open fields I arrive Never to go back I wish I could Oh it feels so good To be back home again Stay in your land Wishing if I could Till the sun goes down You’re welcoming and kind A joy to behold After a long week, ready to unwind And escape reality be-told Pike county road 325 I sure do love your arms Holding onto special moments Seeing you each week I strive Nothing like being on the farm © cmwilmes

To a Happy New Year

2019 maybe gone, New beginnings with the dawn. Years go by faster with time, To the valleys, there will be hills to climb. For all the joys and sorrows of the year, hold them tucked away in your heart with cheer. There to make one stand stronger, Hold those memories a little longer. To our weaknesses and strengths, Always there at length. Keeping us grounded for who we are, Standing bright like a 2020 star. Wishing you all a very Blessed New Year For all the Joys, and sorrows, pain and Cheer. Friends are never far with lending ear, To laughs and giggles and maybe tears. 2019, an end drew near, For 2020 has appeared, May all your dreams persevere, My wish to you with all sincere. XOXO
