A “God’s Wink” Moment

Published August 28, 2012 by boldbeautyfulyoungrestless

A “God’s wink” is what some people would call a
coincidence, an answered prayer, or simply ani
experience so astonishing that it could only have
come from  God.

 I would like to share one of these moments that I experienced
with you today, in the form of a short poem.
Having lost my mother, grandmother, and many other
loved ones to breast cancer, it was a scary
diagnosis to receive myself.  Here is what happened on
my surgery day.


 A frightening day, that was so hard to face
 I decided  to put myself in a whole other place

As I lay alone in the hospital bed
 Panic and fear are filling my head.

Anxiety  getting the best of me
Oh, how will I g
et through the Mastectomy??  

 I will tell you now what worked for me,
I changed my thoughts with 
Mental imagery.  

They wheeled me to the operating room
So I close my eyes and pictured

This may sound so very strange to some
but there’s more to this story,
still yet to come. 

I arose from surgery, was escorted to the door
And to my surprise, was on the
Maternity Floor!

 I said to myself:  this must be a sign……

This is surely  
‘God’s wink’ 
and I knew I’d be fine.


Oh Baby

It was late December in 63,

what an exciting time for me.

Getting ready for the big event,

Christmas quickly came and went.

I was growing with each passing day

waiting for signs you were on your way.

Your room was ready, all shinny and new

I even had a name picked for you.

Dad wanted to help get things going,

Taking me on car rides, and rocking rocking and a rolling.

We made our plans to bring in the new year,

I could’t believe you still were’t here.

The doctor must have messed up the date,

now you were 6 days late.

New Year’s Eve morn I felt a little funny,

I had a strange pain starting in my tummy.

Dad called the doctor who said, “bring her in”

  I was so happy, I started to grin.

But the doctor said I wasn’t ready,

so he would induce to make the pains come more steady.

Two centermeters, three centimeters, what does it mean,

I am starting to feel like I’m in a dream.

The sceen is set, the lights are bright,

when you made your entrance the special night.

The delivery team were cheering, the doctor relieved,

he had big plans for New Years Eve.

When I saw you for the very first time

I knew you were special and glad you were mine.

You had perfect red lips with a little pout,

your eyes were so bright, just checking things out.

All alone with you on that magical night,

I held you in my arms and it just felt so right.

I was so thrilled you were here,

Oh what a special

Happy New Year.

We met in late June of  ’79

but it simply was not the right time.


As fate would have it, we would meet again,

the months had passed, and the summer did end.


It wasn’t easy making plans

between us…5 kids

with lots of demands.


I loved those Sunday mornings, I felt so carefree

you cooking up your special breakfast for me


It was hard to find time to be alone, so we would

be happy chatting on the phone.


Their weekend, our weekend….what should we do

I think we can take the kids to the zoo.


We made it work, we made it last,

the years were good, they passed so fast.


 Our love grew stronger with each passing day

He always knew the right thing to say.


It was not easy making plans

between us…

five kids with lots of demands.


Slow Down!

Why is the world moving so fast?
Is the world going crazy?
I want to be lazy.

 Our brains are wired to cells and ipods
We don’t look…we don’t hear
Don’t  know when danger is near.

Maybe  I would go and visit the zoo,
Or just take a walk and chit chat with you.

 No plan no appointment
Don’t have to be anywhere
How nice it would be to not have a care.
