Writing Through The Soul's First Anniversary

Writing Through The Soul's First Anniversary

I am very happy today.  Today marks the First Anniversary of Writing Through the Soul.  This blog has changed so much over the past year.  When I started Writing Through the Soul I had planned on posting mostly spiritual stuff on this blog.  I wanted to share my Spiritual knowledge with the world.  At the time, I was heavily into Reiki and Reiki healing.  I wanted the blog to be mostly about that.  But, things do change.

Writing Through the Soul More Than I Hoped 

Over the past year Writing Through the Soul has evolved into a blog where I share all of my knowledge, not just the Spiritual knowledge.  I share a bit of everything on Writing Through the Soul.  I have been very happy with the way things have gone with this blog.  I have seen my readership grow.

I am very happy with it because I do not post all the time.  I have recently decided to put my writing efforts into other things.   I will still keep blogging for time to time.  But at the moment my efforts need to be on other things.

Big Plans for Writing Through the Soul

I have learned so much from other bloggers over the years.  Many of the things I learned I plan on implementing.  I am working on planning things out and changing things a little.  I have gained a lot of knowledge through other writers and I am very grateful for all of that.  I am working on what I want and how I will get it.  That takes a lot of planning.

I thank all of my readers for continuing to read Writing Through the Soul.  I am growing Spiritually and I plan on growing my blog.  But, there is a lot more involved than I realized and I want to have a good plan before I go any further.

I want next year to be better than this one.  There is so much going on in my life that I needed time away from blogging to think of what I wanted and where I will go from here.  I will let everyone what is going on when I discover it for myself.

Happy First Anniversary Writing Through the Soul!

I want to thank all my readers for making the first year of this blog a wonderful one.  There is much more to come.  Without all of you, I would not have made it this far.  I am looking forward to the wonderful things that are happening and sharing them all with you over the next.  Thank- you once again for reading.

A Walk No Man Dare to Go

On a bright and beautiful summer's day, my two little beasts decided that they wished to play.  Their desire to walk amongst the tree. But, before getting all of our gear on, little drops of water began to fall.

Much to their delight, their master of this had no fright.  We walked amongst the tree with light rain falling.  I looked around, and there was no one else in sight.  We slowly strolled through the trees.  What a wonderful thing this beauty brings.  The rain was light, the sun's rays were warm, the wind whispered;  as it was delighted to see us amongst the trees.

Cars drove by looking at us in fright as if we were walking on some type of deadly ground or where no man belonged.  I looked at my two little beasts as their tails wagged in delight.  There was nothing amongst the trees to fight.  We continued our journey we must have been a sight to see.  Many people stared as we walked amongst the peacefulness of nature on that lovely day.

After doing what they came out to do amongst the lovely trees.  We journeyed back home.  Shaking off the little drops of rain that fell on their backs, looking at me in great delight, our journey was done, and we were on our way home.

I dared to go where no man would.  I dared to walk amongst the trees with my two little beasts, indeed.  A little light summer rain never hurt anyone.  I took a journey that most would not.  Judging by the smiles on the faces of my little beasts and the wags of their tails.  I am very glad; I dared to journey where no other man would go.

Thursday Tree Love and Share a Tree Photo My Bamboo Tree

After reading Martha's Thursday Tree Love and  Alana's  Willow Tree-Thursday Tree Love posts about Thursday Tree Love.  I decided, to share a very special story about a tree of my own.
When I was a young girl, I loved to sit under a Willow tree at a nearby park.  I would sit under this Willow Tree and write.
My grandparents had a huge apple tree in their backyard.  When I visited them, I love to sit under the apple tree and write.  Neither of these trees are the very special tree that I want to tell you about

My very special tree is not a big tree.  My tree was a special gift from a special person to me.  My very special tree it a little Bamboo tree.

Why is the Little Bamboo Tree So Special?

My little Bamboo tree was a very special gift from my son.  It was a gift that he thought of all on his own.  My little Bamboo Tree was a Mother's Day gift from my son.   But, this was no ordinary gift.  I am a very spiritual person, and my son read that the Bamboo tree was a magical tree that helped people connect to the Earth and helped them with creativity.

I love my little Bamboo tree.  It sits on a table right next to me as I write.  My son put a lot of thought into this gift and that s why this little Bamboo Tree is so special to me.

A Very Special Gift From B. B. King

I am a huge fan of the late Blues musician B. B. King.  My love for B. B. King's music came from my beloved grandfather Edward Chapman.  I remember dancing to B. B. King's music with my grandfather at a very young age.

My husband is also a big fan of B. B. King. Neither one of us ever got to see B.B. King play live in concert. But, my husband did something extraordinary for me.  My grandfather had a large collection of blues records, and I longed to have at least one record of B. B. king's.  My husband got me a B. B. King album.

Twenty years from the date the I danced with my grandfather to B. B. King, I found myself dancing with my husband to the very same music.  It was a very special gift from B. B. King.

Golden Slumbers for Leelee

Back in March, I lost my beloved the rescue dachshund, Leelee the Contented Dachshund.  I had Leelee for almost six and half years.  She was a deeply loved family pet.

In May of 2016, the vet told me that Leelee had cancer and there was nothing that could be done for her.  Most dogs do not make it three months.  Leelee was a fighter.

I noticed that in late January of this year she saw slowly getting worse.  As I said, Leelee was a fighter.  I made a promise to this little dog that I would take care of her until the very end.

There were many times when I did not think Leelee was going to make it, but somehow she pulled through.  I know her time was running out when the cancer made it's way to her legs, and she could no longer walk.

On March 10th, I know my strong spirited little wolf's fight was coming to an end.  I had her on my lap and sang to her.  She had a huge smile on her face.

Leelee, the Contented Dachshund, Left this world on March 11th.  She was laying on me and had a huge smile on her face.  Leelee was a one of a kind dog, and I will always miss her.  She has become part of my soul.

               Spoiled Little Dachshund I love You

Spoiled little dachshund I love you.
From the moment I saw you, my love was true.
You have brought great joy right from the start.
You have become a big part of my heart.

The six years that we have been together flew by
Like the biggest eagles in the sky.
I do not know what I will do when you are no longer by my side.
To have rescued you bring me great pride.
I know that everything that lives must someday die.

When I found out your true age, I know our time was even more limited.  I could not bare to hear that cancer had taken over you and there is nothing that anyone can do. 

I thank God for every day that he lets you stay.
Even though,  I know that the end is near.
I still pray that God lets you stay just a little longer.

The pain that you are in, you hide because you have wolf pride.
When the end does come to you my sweet friend, know that I will be by your side.  It will be hard for me to let you go but, I will know, that it will be the best thing for you to be by God's side.

So, I will cherish every moment I have with you up until the very end.
And, I will thank God for every day that we got to spend together, forever.
You will be indeed the little angel I always said that you were.

Writing Through the Soul

Writing Through the Soul was started as a blog where I would post a mixture of articles.  At the time I started Writing Through Soul, I was thinking about just posting my short stories and poetry on this blog.

Writing Through Soul turned into a blog where I would share my knowledge of the things that I love and what was doing at the time I started this blog.  I was looking for a way to make money from home, and I was sharing what I learned about blogging along the way.

I am a very open minded person when it comes to spirituality.  I have studied many different spiritual systems over my lifetime. I wanted to share some of the many things that I learned over my life.

Writing Through the Soul is a personal blog about the things that I love and enjoy.   Often post about my family, that includes my pets.  I feel that the animals that live with us are part of our family. I will even post a review from time to time.

Writing Through the Soul is a way for me to share with the world the things that I love.  I can share some of the knowledge that I have gained over my lifetime.  Most of all Writing Through the Soul is a way for me to share my love of writing with my readers.

July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge

Much Thought Went into July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge

Much thought went into the July 2017  Ultimate Blog Challenge for me.  I had many questions that needed to be answered. Most important was, am I going to do the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge?  If I do the July 2017  Ultimate Blog Challenge which blog to use or should I use more than one of my blogs?

I went back and forth on whether or not I  was going to do the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge  Well here I am on the first day of the  July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge, writing my first post for the challenge.  Thank-you Martha DeMeo at Martha's Review for reminding me what the Ultimate Blog Challenge means for me.

Which Blogs or Blog to Use for the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge?

Which blog or blogs to use for the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge is another question that went back and forth wth, I have three blogs; Lady Nightwave Brenda's Reviews, The Contented Dachshund and Writing Through the Soul.  This is my third-time dong the challenge, and I have always used Writing The Soul for the challenge.  So once again, I have decided to use Writing Through Soul for the challenge and only to do the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge with this blog.

Many Reason Why I was Thinking of Not Doing the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge!

There are many reasons why was thinking about staying out of the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge.  One am not a pro blogger, and I do not think I will ever be a pro blogger.  I love to write and read other blogs. Two there is a lot gong on n my life right now.  Ther have been many big changes that have taken place in the past six months and I was not sure if I would have the time to do the challenge.

Thanks to Martha DeMeo at Martha's Review, I have decided, to do the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge.  I will do my best to post daily, but if I can't, I will not worry about it.  I will most likely be posting about all that has happened to me in the past six months and all that is going on the July.  I promise that I will relax and just have fun doing the July 2017 Ultimate Blog Challenge.  I am hoping to run into some old friends during this challenge.
