Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Westmoor High School, Daly City, CA 1970 or 71

Happy Fun Fri-Yayyy!

I’m really excited to share my poem and a Surprise Guest appearance with you all, in honor of my husband on our 43rd Anniversary!

It’s always been you and me
sitting under the same umbrella
on different planets;

Me in the Sun, and you in the Shade.
You are my sun, I am your shade.

The uphill climb, the downward spiral
and in between the greige.

We find middle ground
in honoring what is
and what isn’t,
pushing boulders uphill,
others tumbling down,
rapid fire.

Feelings get crushed,
understanding, the booby prize.
Deciphering, who’s right
and who’s wrong,
like there is one-:)

Stubborn and competitive,
“my way or the highway”,
feathers get ruffled,
we retreat into our caves.
The yin and yang of life, that’s us.

You pretend you care what I’m saying
and I try to give a hoot what you’re saying.

I dream of peace and tranquility for all,
you shout and scream
for the strike out or who crossed the finish line.

We don’t complete each other’s sentences,
but are so happy to find someone
who can let each other be
in solidarity and
understanding.

Lightning strikes
or the sun shines bright.
The light bulb goes on,
as we stand together,
honoring our differences.

We smile and appreciate,
You are you
and I am me,
light years apart
but

looking at the same star
and know,
it’s always been
you and me
sitting under the same umbrella
on different planets.

You are my star
and I am your sun
and we
are looking at each other,

always in truth,
always different
as night and day,
always in honor,
always in love.

Until Eternity.

Happy Anniversary Gregg!

I hope you actually read this post and liked it!

XO

Marriage is tricky no doubt with a lot of ups and downs, give and take and open honest communication. It’s not easy, but then again, nothing worth having is. There are few people I know, after being married for this long that will tell you anything else, if they are telling the truth. I’m blessed to have a partner that goes the distance, is there for me and our family and children. Our roles shift and change in support of what’s needed to care for our soul and responsibility daily. I can’t believe we’ve been married for 43 years and dated 7 before that.

We joke that sometimes it feels like 100 and it does. We often say we would never marry again which makes marriage sound like a death sentence but truly, I’m not sure either one of us would ever find anyone who would get each other in the unconditional way that we do and I feel blessed each and everyday. A holy matrimony sometimes or a holy “how in the hell have we made it”, on other days. But always, with respect and love and admiration. It is vital that we take time to honor these milestones in our lives to flame the fire, and keep our love alive.

And now the surprise. We both taught Sunday School when our 4 our youngest was a baby and our oldest was 6 years old at Unity in Palo Alto until they were in High School. I’m still not sure how we managed that when I look back. Charley Thweatt was a singer and songwriter who came and did guest appearances and I haven’t seen him for 37 years. He is an award winning songwriter so it wasn’t hard to find him on Facebook. We reconnected and did a zoom session together on Monday and recorded a song to sing that he wrote, called Here Between Heaven in honor of a friend of his, which worked perfectly for our special day.

I was terrified of the high pitched soprano I had to reach and funny enough my voice didn’t come out and I am lip singing (how’s that for serendipity) but I know you will love his incredible voice that is spiritually rooted in heaven. He is truly talented and gifted. I just look like I’m lip singing lucky you. 😂.

After this, I did record our voices together if you want to have a listen.

And Now if you want to listen to Charley in the confines of your own home see the link below to order.

A QUICK RIDDLE: What cost Charley $215,000 to make, and you can buy for $35? (INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING)

Includes Lyrics & Cover Art – Plays in a new Car’s USB Slot – Load it into iTunes Get all 18 of Charley Thweatt’s Albums on a Thumb Drive Order at http://www.musicangel.com/mp3-cd 

THUMB DRIVES – Here is the link for people to purchase his 18-album thumb drive: 
https://www.musicangel.com/mp3-cd or you can venmo him. His Venmo handle is @Charley-Thweatt. 

He has been taking a small group of people to Italy for about 20 years and has missed the last 3 due to the pandemic but will be leading his first one In October and has a few spots left. See his flyer by clicking on the link if you are interested.

ITALY – He has two more double rooms to fill for October 4-17. Here is his website page about his Italy tours. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos, too. If my daughter wasn’t getting married in September, chances are good, I’d join in the fun.
https://www.musicangel.com/italy


And in answer to our move in date today…. well, let’s just say we’re close but no cigar. Movement is the key word here and we’re moving along.

This was so much fun. Thanks once again Charlie and to all of you for being here and rooting for our bedroom remodel to be done. We will have the bed tomorrow but no running water or lights but we’re close.

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend.

With love and blessings to you and those you love,

💖

Cindy

You’re most welcome, Cindy! It was so much fun to listen, really sad to know of her passing ‘May her soul rest in peace’. ❤️
It is indeed a journey of trials and tribulations, a good partner is honestly hard to find in this generation.
Haha… Glad to know that, you go girl. 😆❤️
A great Fri-Yay and weekend to you as well! ❤️💞

Yeah it is indeed sad, I guess being contend with yourself and what you have in life is far better than a gorgeous face which you still aren’t contend with.
I will no longer fear now that you are here. 😁❤️

What a beautiful song! I’d never had the honor of hearing Charley, so this was a treat. Nice to feel I was at a Unity service. (And your lip syncing made me recall the controversy over Milli Vanilli years ago!) Happy 50th!!!!! (You know as well as I do, the unmarried years together count, too!) Your dynamic with your hubby sounds a lot like mine with my partner. We, too, inhabit very different worlds, but appreciate & love each other to the bone. I adore your pics from the 70’s. And, that tree! It’s marvelous! Have a beautiful anniversary weekend, dear Cindy! Much love to you! 🌞💛🌻

Oh Dear Lord Cindy, 50 Years Ago at Sweet 16 You Emanate
The Same Beauty, Wisdom, Kindness, And Deep Soul As You

Do Today of Course Accompanied by That Handsome Lad Who
Would Stay By Your Side for 50 Years including 43 In Holy Matrimony

As Of Your Anniversary Today! July 15th, 2022!

Among Redwoods
True of Southern
California
Dreaming
Come True too

Hehe Meanwhile What
Memories These Throwback
Photo With ‘The Dress’ of that
Day Bring to me Almost A Desire
to Whip-Out my Middle School 1972 Year

Book And Review A Few Black And White
Memories at 12 Years-Old too As Yes The Lunch
Lady Dressed Up As A Clown For Halloween And my
Peers Labeled Her Picture As Me They Who Did not

Restrain Themselves At All Then That i Am A Four Eyed
Boy Nerd Who Was Mistaken as a Girl Who Only A Mother
and Dog Would Love
Yes That Much
Came True

Hehe too

Yet There Was
Jenny too my Sister
Was Nice too Yet Jenny

Was 16 (She Never Wore
a Bra And i Couldn’t Help
Yet Take Notes, Hehe) Anyway

Walking me to the City Park to Play
Tennis With me So Surprised As While All
the Other Kids Very Much Did Describe me as
Autistic and Socially Clueless As Such yep Diagnosing

Me Way Before i Actually Got Diagnosed As Even When i Didn’t
Speak Until 4 in those Days the Doctor Told my Mother Don’t Worry
You Just Give Him Everything He Needs Once He Needs Something
Else He Will Surely Ask hehe as Yes Even Before i Could Speak and
my Mother Searched our Whole Trailer for Her Car Keys With A Big
Grin i found them Under the Bed And Took Them to Her And Even Saved

A Day Then!

Yep, A Mother
And Sister and
Dog And Jenny
Who Called Me
Artistic instead of
Words That Related Autistic
Really Saved my Days then

Yet It’s True The Only Difference
Tween Autistic And Artistic is R U
Or U R And It’s True A Human Will

Be Both In One Lifetime Even Switch
Hitting From Creativity to Science on
A Turn of An Empirical And Measurable Dime

Yes i was Surely a Slow Bloomer Dear FRiEnD
Yet It Looks to me Like Ever Since Sweet 16 You
Are A Beautiful Soul Through and Through Thanks So Much

Do Let Us Know if You
Are Holding Back And
You Are Also Ms. California
