The Angels Swooped In & Haiku 12/28/14


Drowning in chaos

And then the Angels swoop in

Order is restored

They say that drowning is a peaceful way to die

But I’m not sure that could be true

Because I’ve felt like I was drowning before

And I felt like it recently

And I couldn’t breathe

And the tears slid down my face

And I gasped for air

And I had no idea how I could possibly complete the task before me

It wasn’t that I didn’t believe

Because I did

I read recently to always let your faith be larger than your fear

And I have faith

And I have fear

And I believed that I could do it all

But then there was a deadline

And it required help from someone else

And it looked daunting

And it felt heavy

And I was suffocating

And I wondered if I was in over my head

And then the Angels swooped in


The Angels swooped in

And they took care of everything

And my load seemed lighter

Like thousands of pounds were lifted off my shoulders

And I could breathe

I wasn’t drowning

I was saved

And I was happy

And I felt loved and protected

And I couldn’t be more grateful

Sometimes…even though the fear starts to grow

Faith prevails…yes faith prevails

Thank you…beautiful swooping Angels!





My dear, dear friends!  I have missed you all so much!  Merry Christmas…I hope the holiday found you all in peaceful bliss and surrounded by love.  Life has been a bit hectic, and very emotional.  I am doing the best I can given the circumstances.  And I have truly been helped by Angels!!

The Momma is better.  She will be moving to “Assisted” living within her own community.  It has been a difficult decision, but after much evaluation I believe it to be the best thing for all of us.  But it is sad 😦

I am in the process of going through all of her belongings and downsizing.  There are many items, photographs, memories…some of them good…some of them not.

But this is the week of the New Year…2015…it seems impossible.  Y2K was just a bit ago…right?

A friend asked me last night if I had any New Year resolutions.  I have a few ideas floating around in my head.  Hopefully soon I will get around to the commitment phase 🙂  Who knows…maybe I will share them in a post here.  (That is if I truly pull off this move before the first!!)

Much love to you all.  Thank you for opening up a whole world of beauty to me here.  I value the friendships I have found and I pray that I will be back on a more consistent schedule in 2015!

❤ Lorrie

    1. Hi Val…oh how I’ve missed you!! Thank you for you beautiful advice…I love the visual…breathing with the Angels 🙂 I love that you wrote that because when things get a little out of control I have remembered to “breathe” through it. Sometimes it works…other times I just get dizzy!!!

      Thanks for caring about The Momma! Even though I have been a pendulum swinging back and forth on whether this is the correct decision, deep down I know it is. The reason I swing is because she swings back & forth….and by that I formation alone she wouldn’t be safe. It has been exhausting …but we have had the help of Angels in so many ways…I am so grateful!! Much love to you for a New Year filled withnloev, understanding, and peace!! ❤


      1. Facing a new reality with love and foresight can be so hard because we have to let go of so much. That is the pendulum and inner struggle.
        Much love to you in this turbulent time…. It is one that most of us face.
        Keep doing so with grace and kindness.
        You are an inspiration!
        Val xo

    1. Thank you Natalie!! It is all going to work out…I just know it! 🙂 I hope your Christmas was beautiful and I wish you wonderful blessings for the New Year <3. I do hope to be more present very soon. Much love!


    1. Dear Mino…WOW!! That is a very huge honor! I have often wished that I had some musical ability because I would love my words to be sung! You know I am so appreciative of your music and singing… I would love it if I heard you sing my words…what an honor…please contact me about how we can make this work…what we would have to do! Much love my friend…and a very beautiful New Year ❤


    1. Oh Cynthia…Thank you…you are so sweet!! We are so very close to meeting our “deadlines” (terrible word.) It has been a heck of a ride…it will take me a while to sort it all out. But for now the most important thing is getting the Momma out of the rehab and to her new home. I wish you all good things for the New Year 🙂

  2. I have thought of you off and on since I read your post about so many sick loved ones. I was just reading yesterday in Genesis chapters 30-33. Jacob was very overwhelmed. He had recently fled from one man (his father-in-law) and was about to meet up with another man (his brother Esau, who he had fled from 20 years earlier). Here are a couple of verses you might like:

    ” 1And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.

    2 And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God’s host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim.” Genesis 32:1-2

    I am praying for you and your family.
