Happy New Year’s From ParadiseRoads

Happy New Years!! I’m looking forward to a lot this year. My expectations are high. The only thing I want to do this year is enjoy my life with love. I want to experience the great out doors and get back to the country girl that I am.

Here is a poem that I found and wanted to share, I thought today was most appropriate for the words

xoxo

I am still learning
About this thing we call life and how it works
And how we keep time here on this earth

How do we mark heaven here below
And find its mercy in our melancholy?
How do we bring it down to our hearts
And keep it there the whole year through
I do not know, do you?

How do we keep memories from slipping out to sea
And people from sailing off to destiny?
How do we tell who can hold us without hurting
Who can love us without leaving
I do not know, do you?

How do we keep pace with change, outrun fear
And never forget why we are here?
How do we fan the flames of the future
And stoke the fires of yesterday
I do not know, do you?

I am still learning
About this thing we call life and how it works
And how we keep time here on this earth

But as the year turns over and brings us a new one
I am quite certain indeed that I shall stay,
And learn, and know, and teach.

Hey Peeps! I'm Kacie, a 30 something year old dreamer with a love of all things. I'm a shy and very quiet girl from Louisiana. I grew up on a farm in the middle of watermelon fields and dirt roads. However, it was in the middle of those roads where my journey began as a child. I would like to think that I can always return to where I’m from when life is overwhelming. I enjoy baking, gardening, eating, photography, & all things country-related. I’m also a cradle Catholic who enjoys learning more about Catholicism. God has put my Faith to the test on several different occasions throughout my life. I’m a caregiver to my mother and this is where starting a blog began.
