As i write this i am inspired by the people who make me smile and add that little extra to my life everyday. Going to work for many of us is a trial. Something we may not want to do but has to be done no matter how much we like or don't like it. As i work in retail food industry every day is different i can honestly say no day is the same as the next. Today Maria Duffy has inspired us all to trend on twitter for . I think this is a great idea for us all to come together and share our thoughts.

In my job i get to meet some really great people and sometimes the lather. I often don't feel like the may west and smiling is apart of my job but i can honestly say its easy for me. People are my inspiration and they make my job all the more interesting. It is my job to make sure the customer is getting the best service possible which i do to the best of my ability. I find there is always those certain customers who take the time to thank you and tell you how much you do for them. For instance yesterday a man told me that it was a pleasure for me to serve him. This may seem insignificant to some but i felt like he hit my heart with his words. Often other people have more of an effect on me than i seem to have on them. With out their wonderful positive thinking and smiling faces how could i see the impact we all have on each other.

Sometimes the simple things in life can mean the most to others and ourselves. Each person has an effect on the next. We don't always want to smile or feel like we can make a change, but all our actions bring about change. Some people just want to be served while others love to have a chat. I feel connected to my customers and feel like a have that bond with them.  It is my pleasure to be as much apart of their lives as they are mine. I laugh and some times i feel like crying with what i hear. Children are so funny i have some great chats with them and now they are back to school. They just love to chat away what teachers they have and their favorite and not so subjects.  Mammy stories are the ones i relate to most. I often get mistaken for not having children. The lines you wouldn't understand what its like to have children. As a mum of a 20 yr old son a daughter 15yrs and daughter who is 10 yrs old i do understand how hard it can be. 

I get told i am to young to have a son that age but when all my friends were living i was having a baby. My
friends were in school and partying i was doing nappy changes and bottle feeds. They were staying up all night having the laugh. I was up all night trying to get his wind up trying to see the funny side crying myself . It was all worth it he is in college now and doing so well. I am proud of who is and who he has become. Just goes to show what you put in you get out. All my children are my inspiration and my reason for getting up every morning. I laugh everyday because of them. I never sit still but i wouldn't have it any other way.

Life is not always easy or the way we want it. But the people that we have in our lives make all the difference. You have choices in life. Sometimes we are forced to choose i can honestly say i have lived through choices i never wanted to make. 

So as you do step out today think of how you make a difference to others and how they do the same to you.

The simple deeds make the world of a difference.

Waiting for something
for that voice to fill the air
sometimes there are mysteries
we should not open up
or do we care

Each rock she crossed
was met with each heart beat
slow thinking thoughts
so discreet

Lightening bolts
shook her up inside
lifting her up
she was made of tough stuff

Each edge of her mind
felt so rough
like it had been brushed away
pushed to its limits

As shadows of the past
filled her memories
she knew this would brake her
if she did not let go

With the moon as her light
shinning down on her silky soft skin
As salty tears
tore her from within

Walking along
with the past finally left behind
she knew all along
she must of been blind

Knowing now
what she did not know then
changed her view
of all men

They are not all the same
some have a game
but he was the one
that never called out her name

Teasing Curls

With soft breath 
she kissed him slowly 
often he wanted her to do it more 
wanting her to explore even more 

standing in the lake 
all to bare 
him and her 
they just did not care 
this was their adventure 
leaving all 
this was their dare 
letting it all out 
out in the open 
in the middle of no where 

His shy eyes 
drew her closer 
she loved how vulnerable he felt 
his quite smile 
took over 
her silent words 

Lasting impressions
viewing each others expressions
teasing curls 
hung on her shoulders 

His fingers 
played with them 
as she pushed herself closer 
lips tied in 
oh he was her deadly sin

Planting ponds 
of waterfalls way 
silence filled the air 
on that warm sunshine day 

Knowing she was the one for him
he held her more closely 
in his mind within
looking at her face 
gave him all his pleasure 
her smile took over 
she was his treasure 

Lost in Time

With eyes red and tired
body dragging along
fire in his breath
nearly there just not yet

Blood running fast through his veins
people pass by
he still does not complain
no one knows his name

Torture is his life
isolation is his island of living
loneliness is state of forgiving
shyness is his expression of his knife

Look through his glass
only half full
mind set thoughts
oh aches are washed away so dull

Lost in space
lost in time
is his crime

Words they just wont come
beating heart
in his casket
unsung drums

Thumping of loving
somewhere else
not his own
lost in memories
Better to his self

Hear his call
he wants it all
less of effort
one man against the wall
left hopeless
in a time
where he once stood tall

Growing Up

Oh waking up to a wonderful day
all that needs to be done
school starts back tomorrow
my body is tired
feels like a worn out marrow

Running around like a wild one
hope to wake up on time
set the alarm clock
the rush is on again

Children stressed out
over not having enough
coloring pens
Off to work the good gentlemen

Smell of the toast and the hot tea
children and everyone
rushing by me
summer is gone
weather is getting cold
oh my goodness
i feel very old

Writing down the list of the last few bit and bobs
wondering is there anything left for me in the shops
the race is on to find all i can
i need an industrial cooler a massive big fan

To cool me down and calm me down
i must not stand still
give me something for my nerves
or least something to help me stand still

Off she will go another start of a year
growing up so fast
the daughter i hold so dear
where does time go
my baby is growing up fast
she always makes me laugh
we surely have a blast

So as tomorrow draws closer
she will wave goodbye to me
she wont let me hug her in public
or even sit on my knee
all grown up now
she is independent sure enough
by tomorrow evening i will be out of puff

Two women

Two women friends had gone out for a Girls Night Out, and had been decidedly over-enthusiastic on the cocktails. Incredibly drunk and walking home they suddenly realized they both needed to pee. They were very near a graveyard and one of them suggested they do their business behind a headstone or something. The first woman had nothing to wipe with so she took off her panties, used them and threw t
hem away. Her friend however was wearing an expensive underwear set and didn't want to ruin hers, but was lucky enough to salvage a large ribbon from a wreath that was on a grave and proceeded to wipe herself with it. After finishing, they made their way home.

The next day the first woman's husband phones the other husband and said, "These damn girls nights out have got to stop. My wife came home last night without her panties." "That's nothing," said the other. "Mine came back with a sympathy card stuck between the cheeks of her butt that said, 'From all of us at the Fire Station, We'll never forget you!'

Please officer

A DEA officer stopped at our farm yesterday "I need to inspect your farm for illegal growing drugs." 

I said "Okay , but don't go in that field over there.....", 

The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and shoved it in my face. "See this fucking badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear?.... do you understand?!!"

I nodded politely, apologized, and went about my chores. A short time later, I heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by my big old mean bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified.

I threw down my tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of my lungs.....

"Your badge, show him your fucking BADGE

Whispering Silence

Calling out her name
was the start of the game
he once felt nothing
but now his open heart was to blame

Leaving an impression on him
she left silence
filling his stare
as breathless air
filled the sunshine air

Her eyes looking back
removed the void in his once torn heart
he now had himself
his confidence he was getting back on track

Holding her picture
deep within his fingers tips
he longed for her beauty
for her loving lips

Not knowing all that was
waiting for her
she had no idea
he felt this way
she did not know
what was about to occur

With every thump of her beating heart
with every flutter
she knew what she fought
letting his light in
smoldering smile
body so fine

Beating his drum
she did follow his flow
come and dance
his words did call
she fell for him she did fall


With his loving eyes
looking on at her
holding her picture
he loved her lips
wanting them to touch his

She did not know
that he felt this way for her
she did not know
what was about to occur

Lying awake
he imagined what he would
like to do with her
he even wanted her more

Her eyes staring back at him
his mouth watering lips
longed to hold her hands
to touch her finger tips

Forbidden fruit
this was her soul
if only she knew
she could have it all

His lines that portrayed
such a gentle man
his eyes so mysterious
his body god damn

Oh she certainly had him
she had his attention
this he knew
he loved it all

Giving off scents
of lust
giving off a path of hope
for her to follow

one day maybe
she would learn to swallow
all that he had to give
until then both of their lives they did live

Smiling back he replied
again and again
her loving eyes they smiled
fantasy was her ride

Hour Glass

When she least expected it
there he fell
out of no where
who could tell

Like a paper airplane
he fell so slow
into her life
he did show

All around her colour everywhere
loving eyes they did stare
as he bit his lip slightly
his shy eyes looked at hers
he knew he was all that there was
she knew he was her cause

As the soft breeze
moved the sheets of tall grass
he grabbed her delicate body
with hands around her hour glass

As both of their bodies
brushed off one another
she knew he was her kind
of forever lover

He took hold of her
as he lay her at the side
of the woven bank
he took her all
he left her mind blank

No noise filled the air
her fast beating heart
was all they both
could hear

Her eyes taking glimpses
of soft cotton clouds
as he softly kissed her
away her from her head
down to her toes

Where he lies

Past out
Letting out a shout
Scared deep with in
Not knowing where he will sleep
Or find his gin

Sleeping underneath
An apartment block
Sheltered from the world
Not knowing the time
Has no clock

As life goes on
All around him
Others look on
Feeling sorry for him

As he wonders around
In the still of the night
Looking for food
To fill his hunger
Not wanting to give
Into his fight

Rubbing his worn tired eyes
This is a man in disguise
Running from who he once was
Now unable to provide
The life he once had
As he soaks up the sun

People can look
And judge him where he lays
But knowing this could happen
To anyone anyday

Sometimes in life
Circumstances come about
Some we can control
Some can take us out

Trying to understand him
As he spoke his gentle words
While watching people walk past
Free as flying birds

This is where he stays
This is where he lays
This is his home tonight
Who are we to judge his life 

Remember him When

Breathe in slow
Talk and let go
Hold his hand
Do not let him walk away
Like a isolated man

What hurts the most
Is watching him slip
Through the cracks
He can’t find his way back

As he moves further away
Gravity takes away all his tracks
Holding his hand out
Cannot hear him
As he shouts

Let him hear you
Closed eyes looking on
Knowing the day will come
That you will be both one

Smoothing away the past
Never wanting to relive
All that happened then
Never let him walk away
Write it with your pen

Filling out emotions
Of how you must feel
Remember you’re only a person
You’re not made of steel

Look Out

What would change his mind
Was it me or was he blind
Could he not of seen
All that i done
He ran so fast

I wanted to wrap the bottle in around my lips
He wanted to slip through my finger tips
I told him i got a bargain
When i went to the shops

He thought that i was mad
He tried to ring the cops
He was like a different person
Like nothing i had seen before

When suddenly a knock
Slamming on the door
He was brave and strong he opened it up
And to his surprise
A hairy angry bear
I walked away and said oh dear

Forest of Pleasure

With waterfalls of imagination
Running through her thoughts
She wanted him underneath them
Shifting her silky worn cloth

As rocks gave them a seat
To rest their love
Staring into each other’s eyes
Lovingly she wore her gloves

Taking them off one at a time
As he held her close
Their lives combined
Touching her lips
With his soft subtle kiss

She pushed herself closer
Wanting even more
Throwing her hair back
He could not ignore

Dipping his foot into the water
He pulled her in along with him
Their bodies wet
Longing for what was coming
But had not happened yet

Holding her closely even more now
Sharing how he felt
Someway somehow
Her eyes looked up to the sky above
His were closed
As he really felt their love

Not wanting this moment to ever end
His wondering hands
Drove her wild
He smiled

Knowing that he had giving her
Some of his pleasure
As they lay on the edge of
The forest of treasure

Rustling Muse

As eyes would look to him
He knew they were waiting for a clue
A hint of impression
A hope of expression

Sitting waiting
For words
That may never come
As they hold their silence
And days on the run

Shifting lashes
Flicking back
Arms of honour
Chasing along the old dirt track

As each step
Was opened
To his closed off heart
Not knowing that it was her
That he loved from the start

Like a flower that withers
Without rain on its leafs
Like a ocean of no fish
No dreams no seas

With shrugged shoulders in place
Refusing to come forward
He typed up his last heartfelt word
To her he expressed all that he felt
Hearing this did make her ice heart melt

Road of Lust

Oh gentle road
Beneath my feet
Leave my foot prints
Worn so sweet

As happiness fills me up inside
Feeling like im floating
Like i could glide
As words fall from my tongue
Knowing just where they belong
To my favourite song

Sea air hits my senses
Every time every where
Waves crash
Sand is pushed back

As my gentle frame
Is looking up
Into his eyes
A man of mystery
A man in disguise

Feeling his skin
Touching mine
Oh my goodness
He is so fine

As his strong embrace
Covers my face
As his lips
Touch mine
Is it me talking or is it the wine

With fingers
In a strong hold
Life opens up
Life unfolds
So catching his look
As i look back
One day he will
Share this time we can get back


Oh little cloud of mystery
Lay your sweet head on me
Follow my words
As they flow from my lips
Hold my hand by my finger tips

Smile as there is no one there
Smile so much
Laugh like you don’t care
Hear your laughter
Feel your emotion
Knowing that someone is your love potion

Whispers of their silence
May be what you need
Try to follow your instincts
Watching you both grow from a seed

Placing hands
And trust in one another
Let him fall
Down on your knees
Feeling your touch
From deep within
Its love he has for you
Let her
Let him in

As the night falls
As emotions are flawed
Gentle softness
As his voice calls

Lifting him Up

Sounds like goodbye
Tears in his eyes
Never ever felt her love
Never ever felt romance

As she went left him
With a broken heart
He loved all along from the start
She just pulled his love along
As if he had done wrong

Whats love got to do with it
Played in the back ground
With every lyric
He felt his heart pound

He looked out through
A dusty window
As life passed by him
He just stood still
With an empty look in his eye

As she passed by
No not her
Another lady
Who he knew before
Then she came up and knocked on his door

He did not know what to do
He hadn’t got a clue
Look at me in my worn out self
Im like a book of no importance
Hidden away on a shelf

She knocked hard
She wasn’t going away
I know your in there
She began to shout his way

Right he said
I will open up the door
As he did
He asked what brings you to me
She said i just can’t ignore

He let her in
And from that day on
She and him
Did live a life
With no loneliness
Only two hearts combined and strong

Look in her Eyes

With all of the colours
Running through her veins
Her circle seemed to spread
Even more wider
There was nowhere to hide

Sharpening pathways
Open up for her pleasure
Offering all
For him to measure

Running and calling out her name
Wild was her heart
She loved to play his game
Shouting out
In the open plain

Come and find me
He said
As he came up from behind
Covering her eyes
To her surprise

As he turned her
To catch the glint in her eyes
His once running heart
Did fall way to far

He wore his words
So much on his sleeve
He loved her so much
Like you wouldn’t believe

Wanting every breath he took
To be the same as hers
But as his hands
Reached out for her
She just took
Walking away with a different look

Blowing Back

Blowing purple back
Into the evening sky
Shutting up both his eyes
As his lips grasped the love
Off they went
Like free flying white doves

First one
And then another
Dancing along
He had said goodbye to
All of his bother

As he lay down
He could feel the ground
Like his blanket of the day
Sheltering his self
Were cream long stems of corn

Barely a breath
Barely a cloud
He could feel the dust falling
Over him like a crowd

With a piece of whistling grass
Pressed in between
He blew as hard as he could
To hear it tune and its screams

As the juice of its flavour
Fell from his lips
Her image before him
Her curvy silhouette hips

I was looking for you
Were you he said
I have been here all along
Playing our songs

As his words
Fell slowly from his lips
His hands grabbed both of her hands
As he pushed them around his shoulders
His muscle ripped boulders  

Follow your Heart

When the noise is around you
When night closes in
Feel your courage
To rest within

Follow your heart
Follow your dreams
Feeling each beat
Whispering of shallow streams

Use your intuition
Use your knowledge
Do what you know
Let your mind relax
Just go with the flow

Hold onto those
Who hold you near
Let them in
Don’t have any fear

They will be there for you
In the good times and the bad
They will lift you up
In times of glad and sad

Looking into their eyes
You see yours looking back
Their smile fills you up
Keeping you on track

Glowing Inside

Sometimes in life
We get treated with kid gloves
We cannot appreciate them at the time
We are like free flying doves

Reading quotes from a book
Oh which one will teach me today
Which one will come my way
Truth is they will guide you
But at the end of the day
You are your own voice
Come what may

Listen closely to yourself
Believe in who you are
Believe in who you can be
Teaching yourself the inner way
On how your life should be

Grab the things you want
Take life by the horns
Reach for the things you wish for
Realise you’re the lucky charm

Riding through rising waves
Pushing the past into the past
Learn to live your life
Know what is important to you
Do what you feel is right

Don’t walk in other peoples shadows
Bring your own one along
Dance to your own tune
Sing your own song

Walk in your own shoes
Don’t try fit into those
That do not fit
You have what you have
You carry a good heart
That remains well lit


Knowing that something was not quite right
My instincts told me not to leave it to long
Go get it checked
When the doctor told us
What was wrong
I got a fright

You were just so small
You felt the pain and all
Running around
Made harder
We thought maybe you
Must have had a fall

First doctor said it was one of two things
The specialist confirmed
And pulled on our heart strings
You were in hospital that night
Operated on the next morning
Kissing your cheek
My eyes were bawling

You were brave
You did your best
Having you as a daughter
We know we are blessed

A hip that was saved by a screw
Inserted into a socket
You’re now on the mend
We are stuck to you
Like glue
Fighting back
When you move it hurts and cracks
One day it may come out
We hope that it will be okay
