About lscotthoughts

This blog was born after I turned 50, with a little nudging from my family. I write from the heart, focusing mainly on Romance, inspired by my husband of 24 years. However, I also write to inspire, to create smiles, laughter or an uplifting moment to move forward in life. Humor is a big part of who I am. I love to laugh and I love those who make laugh. And lastly, you'll find some tears along your journey here. Life is not all smiles, but it's getting through the trials with the love of our family and friends that is most important. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you enjoyed and found something you resonated with...Lauren

Time to put my feet up

Hi All,

It’s that time again…time to put my feet up
or I should say “recess from social media.”
All is fine, but I need a breather from the computer.
I’ve taken a few in the past and I know most of us come
to the same conclusion at some time in our “blogging careers.” :)

I’m not sure how long, but it could last through the holidays
where I’d return in January 2015. So if that happens,
I send wishes for a Happy Halloween,
many blessings at Thanksgiving,
a wonderful holiday season, Merry Christmas
and a Happy and Safe New Year!

But before I go, I just want to thank you all again
for your wonderful visits and feedback,
for your continued support that
encourages me to keep writing from the heart.
I will always remain humble and appreciative.

With much love and virtual hugs and Cheers!

Lauren ♥

Our Time

016

Maybe we found love at the right moment in our lives
the clouds were formed perfectly; the planets were aligned
The sun rose brightly just for us over green hills beyond
the birds shared a lovely chorus with the sun at dawn

I can’t imagine how life would be without your smile
the joy it provides carries me for a million miles
And when I hear your laugh, you have me laughing, too,
and there is no resisting your magnetic baby blues

My mind wondered off and on if true love would ever find me
many moments were wasted with unnecessary worry
Then when I couldn’t prepare, love took me by surprise
after being held in your arms and one look in your eyes

I pray we get the chance, hand in hand, to grow old together
rocking on our cute front porch through any kind of weather
At sunrise, I only wish to feel your warmth and see your loving face
and I know it was meant to be for us to share life’s wonderful embrace

I Ask This of You

 

after the rain 1 final

There are times when I’ve failed you
allowing my worried mind to guide
Being led deep into the darkness
where fear would reveal its ugly head

I wish to undo negative thoughts
and faithless feelings in my heart
for I am ashamed of my weakness
where tears are mine to shed

I know you walk with me in
each day that I take a new breath
When I see the sun rise once again
I’m in awe of your loving grace

Though uncertainty lies on the path ahead
I’m not chained to these dismal ways
Will you cast forgiveness upon my soul?
With renewed trust, I hope it’s not too late

Only Words

You say “I love you,” a recipe of letters
that could stir up a magical moment,
but they’re only empty air bubbles,
meaning nothing without the alliance of
actions and yours are lacking. My heart
will 
bend, but it won’t breakI’ll always
remember 
those sweet moments of tender
kisses and 
hand holdingunforgettable
nights and 
mornings of loving each other,
but the
fun has vanished like water droplets
on a 
summer-kissed sidewalk. I’ll be fine in my
own company, yet, if by chance somewhere
beyond this storm, another love finds his way
into my arms, they’ll be open to letting his
charms lead me home. You had your ending;
now I embrace my beginning. Who can say when,
but I’d be willing to fall in love all over again.

Nonsensical Dreams (Sonnet)

Dear Friends,

This is only a practice Sonnet and for someone who writes about romance quite often (if you know me), a love Sonnet just wouldn’t work this time. So I incorporated one of my husband’s dreams and one of mine and created this. I mainly focused on Sonnet rules, rather than an enticing subject, so your feedback or critiquing is welcomed. If you notice any bloopers, don’t be shy, let me know. I’m learning, as this is a new adventure and of course, I hope this brings a smile, too!

Nonsensical Dreams (Sonnet)

Upon the hill resides a house so great,
Around each corner, hallways run for miles,
The rooms alone are like the size of lakes,
The space indeed creates a million smiles.

Inside its walls roam creatures of all kinds,
From lemurs to giraffes as tall as skies,
The scene itself completely redefines,
What should be truly isn’t all the time.

But just as quick as grins begin to form,
Fear takes their place abounding all around,
Cold sweats and shivers enter like a storm,
As spiders creep, the heart begins to pound.

Yet, as the sun begins to show its light,
Relief sets in erasing all the fright.

Love’s Decree

sunset 2 final

Your kindness
glows upon my world
pulling me into
forever surreal

When you give your love
my foundation shifts
like a gentle quake
I tumble in

Tenderly

you stir my soul
as a whirlwind
out of control

With you
I travel
the road to bliss
my heart’s content
a love so real
