Memories Captured July Linky!

I am right where I want to be, and open to tomorrow.

I wonder how time fleets one heartbeat at a time.

I hear words wrap around moments.

I see stories within these memory threads.

I want to hold onto each stitch made.

I am right where I want to be, and open to tomorrow.

I pretend to be stronger than I am.

I feel smiles.

I touch heartaches.

I worry (I just do).

I cry easily.

I am right where I want to be, and open to tomorrow.

I understand that pushing myself past comfort is the only way.

I say each moment is small.

I dream of quiet and calm and goodness that can be felt, and counted on.

I try to get There inch by inch.

I hope to never Arrive.

I Am poem ala this template via Mama Kat.

  1. Love that poem – I saw the template from Mama Kat and my kids actually wrote a poem from the template as well!

    Wonderful pictures, Galit – and I’ll definitely be linking up, I’m just not ready today! Too much Fifty Shades of Grey 😉

  2. I love the poem. I posted a tribute to my son. My daughter is the cuddly one and Alexander has needs… Andrew always seems to be overlooked. I have a few pictures and a video. I hope that is ok. Love this linkup.

  3. Your ‘I Am’ poem has moved me to beyond tears (if there’s such a place).

    Gorgeous photos – look at glowy you!

    (love doing this linky with you every month)

  4. You are beautiful – inside and out!!

  5. I’m in such a struggle against myself right now. My post today is actually about it. This post seems to be written for me. It is a very much needed reminder if just how lucky I am to have the words of friends like you to calm my head and warm my heart. Xoxox

  6. Beautiful my friend. xo

  7. Absolutely wonderful, as always.

  8. I love the notion of “I am right where I want to be, and open to tomorrow” and “I hope to never arrive.” Beautiful.

  10. I really need to try out this poem. The ones I’ve read have been great.
    Your photos are great. I think you’ve cloned yourself 😉

  11. How do you steal my breath away and make my heart whisper “perfection” all in one post?
    You have an amazing gift.
    Always tomorrow. Always.

  12. –Ahhh, yes,
    I remember why I come here…

  30. Wow! Galit, I love how you combined the poem with your memories captured. Beautiful.
    P.S. You are looking fabulous!!!

  31. I like that mantra: “I am right where I want to be and open to tomorrow.” I like how it’s all about the here and now, and also the future – with no mention of looking back.

  32. Eek! The collection closed before I got this far. I’m adding myself in the comments. So there ;P

  33. Leighann says:

    I so relate to this!

  35. I needed to see this today. How many times have I said that about your posts? It’s true. I did. I’m right where I need to be today. And,oh, how I worry too. I just do.
    I hope you are having a wonderful summer. xo

  36. Your words and your pictures are just lovely! Such a beautiful post!

  37. Beautiful, and what fun, wasn’t it?

    i tried a couple different forms and they all felt so good to write.

    My children enjoyed it, too.

    They loved the ease and I loved the unexpectedness of their answers.
