Here And Gone Tomorrow

Special times together can spark a lasting bond. For some of us that have family scattered far and beyond. You never know what you’re missing until they are gone. You can be here today and gone tomorrow and leaving your family feeling nothing but hurt and sorrow. So if you get the chance in life to make a good memory or two. Try to make it a good one so they can remember you....

The Love Of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a very special time to celebrate the year, and be thankful for what you have that’s very close and dear. The thing I am most thankful for is finding someone close and wishing she was with us. That’s what I want the most. Even though she’s states away, I still feel that she is near. And the thought of her thinking of me brings me so much cheer. With thoughts, of love pouring from my soul. Hopefully she will always know. How much I love my Little Sister…..

A Poem To My Sister

Life is fantastic when all the pieces of a puzzle come together. They lay side by side in time stuck forever.
Until one day when one piece of the puzzle fits in. And you stumble across your lost next of kin.
It’s so overwhelming when you have found a loved one. And your search has paid off from the time you begun..
I’ve looked and I’ve looked and truthfully... I almost gave up..
and then I found my lost sister on a website called Face book.
Is the search finally over after all of these years?
All, I can say C.J. it’s hard to type with all these tears.
Like you said, a new chapter in life has opened for us. Lots, of unanswered questions for us to discuss.
It may take some time for some answers we seek. But, we will not give up till we have conquered this leap.
But, So far the dates and locations and times are all exact. I know you’re my sister it’s just a matter of proving that fact. I feel it in my heart and I know this is true because the emptiness… I had before has gone since I was reunited with you. I am so glad that I found you, no words can express. Thirty Five years of sadness has lifted off my chest.
I know I was two when you were taken away. But, I want you to know.
C.J. I have Thought, Missed and Loved you Every Single Day!

I Have A Tumor on Pituitary Gland

I have to have surgery on my pituitary the operation is very necessary.
I have a Tumor on my Pituitary Gland you see.
I had an MRI with the contrast Dye. So they could see deep inside my mind.
They say it's a simple operation. Yeah, A simple operation!
They started me, on Bromocriptine. A medicine to treat Hyperprolactinemia.
They are going to try to shrink it first, because My pituitary Gland is so enlarged it looks like is going to burst. I tell ya folks this is no joke. I just hope they can shrink it before the surgeons have to poke.There is a small chance of going blind because my optic nerves to eyes are growing very fond of this giant mass of whatever thriving off my brain matter. And when they go to remove the tumor there is a chance that my optic nerves could be damaged.. You see this is a (simple operation) WHAT? For who the guy watching with his fully functioning eyes!! So yes I hope the Bromocriptine works..... So just another post to bore you guys and to let you know i am still around was Dianosed also with Hyperthyriod disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, Low testosterone, Very High Prolactin Levels in the 467 range the highest my doctors have ever seen in a man in their careers of 30 + years. so with all the medicine i am taking i just feel like throwing up all the time and sick just sick YUK! So maybe I'll start writing again sometime in the future you all take care and GOD Bless You Keep me in your prayers! And thanks for following me. Gary L. Hess

Give Me A Dollar

If I Told You I need a dollar.
Because I'm Poor and live in a holler.
Because there is no jobs around in my little town.
I am forced to scrounge around.
I look around each day trying to find a way.
To bring a few dollars my way.
But nothing seems to work.
I guess people think I'm a lazy jerk.
But that's not true a all. I'm just backed against a wall.
And it seems no luck at all will fall in my direction.
I'm not looking for a hand out just a little change for what you read.
At least I'm giving you something and its not at all just greed.
I do indeed need money so I will ask you one more time if you have a dime or dollar extra.
Can I have it for my time?

Here It Is Again

Here it is again another bad Winter Storm is setting in. When will this end? Ever since the start of 2010. The storms are over and over again. One snow storm after another reminds me of the times I spent with my brothers. Playing Outside all day long in the snow. We would sleigh ride down the hills till we would turn blue in the gills. And head right back up the mountain to do it all over again. It didn’t matter how cold we would get because we were young and so full of it. We would snowball fight till our fingers were numb then grab our inner tubes and go do something really dumb. But those were the Good Old Days and all those Days are gone we all have started families and we have moved on. We don’t stay in touch like we did back then. We don’t call, we don’t write, we don’t even fight now that was not polite for me to say. But we are brothers and our blood is the same why do they put our family in so much pain. It’s really insane! I’ve tried to bring our family back together again. But no matter how hard I try it just seems they do not care. They both have major issues and it has made them very unfair. Those issues I won’t mention because I am sincere. I think back to when they were so small. I would have never thought they would EVER turn out this way at all. But you hang around the wrong people at the wrong place and the wrong time bad things are almost certain to happen each and every time. If you are not careful and watch what you do. You will certainly be singing a jail house tune or two. So back to this Snowstorm how much will we get? The way that it is snowing I’m sure a foot or two. It doesn’t really matter there is nothing me or you can do. The last storm that we received it was hard to get out my door! Mother Nature only knows what she may have in store. No matter how much we don’t care for some things that come unexpectedly into our path of life. We need to LOOK at it as if it were something good. For life has its strange way of showing us we are on the wrong path. Now I hope you enjoy the things that I write for I have no direction I just start to type. I don’t know where I am going or what I will say. I just know that after I complete it I feel Wonderful for the rest of the Day! What can I say?

As I think of something to say each and everyday. The words of my heart flow out into the world. Or the World Wide Web as we all have came to call it. Just point and click and cut and paste the words of your soul into the vast world of technology. Share your deepest desires and emotions within seconds of a click of a mouse. Share your thoughts and feelings with anyone in the world. And let them know who you are inside. Give them your heart and your soul and let them decide what to do with it. Leave it in the hands of fate to decide what path you will take. What journey you will go on through the words that you type. I have come to realize that poetry doesn’t always have to rhyme. Poetry can be what you are feeling at the time or maybe what is on your mind. There is no certain length. And your poem does not have to show strength. It does not matter who you are, or how long that you may live. Just Remember that your words is the gift that you give.

Don’t run and hide stay here by my side
And keep me company. Girl you know,

And I am always thinking of you. Please stay with me
For eternity. Girl, I love you. Forever and more, girl

Lover and my wife. Please stay with me forever in my arms
You have the beauty and all your charms. Please stay with me
For eternity. Girl I love you forever and more…….

Have you ever wondered?

Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue?
Have you ever wondered why we have one left and one right shoe? Have you ever wondered who invented the canoe?
Have you ever wondered about a girl named sue?
Have you ever wondered why a love is true?
Have you ever wondered why when you’re sad they call it blue?
Have you ever wondered why I love you?
Have you ever wondered?

Snowflakes are like tiny little stars that fall down from the heaven to glisten our yards.
When we were kids we would catch them on our tongues.
And the first sign of them we all knew winter had begun.
Snowflakes are small and so unique you can’t find two them same
No matter how much you seek. As I look out my window and watch them fall down
Have you ever happened to notice there is nobody walking around.
When they arrive we all think they are nice.
Because, they turn our yard into a winter paradise.
Snowflakes are small and hard to see but they can make
It hard to travel from point A to point B.

Yet another day that school is out. I sit around and listen to my kids scream and shout. They are happy because they can go outside and play. Yes, school was called off another day. I put some more coffee on, for me and my wife. It’s going to be a long day. But hey that is part of life.

If it keeps on snowing like it is today the kids won’t go back to school until next Monday.
Looks like the weather man is saying more snow again. Lord, what away for 2010 to begin.
I shovel and shovel and there seems like no end. I’ll wake up in the morning and I will have to start all over again. Over four feet of snow so far this year and this is just the beginning of winter my dear. It’s hard on the old folks and it is hard on my back I hate to complain and sound like a sap. This winter is colder as a matter of fact.

But, this bad winter will toughen our skin. But at the same time it will bring us closer to our kin. And we hope and we pray everyday that cabin fever doesn’t set in. It’s hard when you’re young and nothing to do. You know when it’s to cold outside after a minute or two when you start to notice your skin color changing to blue. So when it’s to cold outside then what do you do?

You pour the kids some hot chocolate and put on a big pot of stew. Maybe tell them a story or maybe two. Maybe tell them story about when you were a kid. Maybe there was something special your Mother or Father did. Just remember those special times when someone you knew maybe an aunt or an uncle or somebody close to you. And remember what they did to entertain you.

You need to cherish all these moments you can with your kids. And tell them you love them and share hugs kisses and grins. One day you will grow old. And it will be just you and your wife. All the kids are now gone they have started their own life. Now they will have kids and snow days as well. And maybe if you are lucky something will ring a bell. When, your grand kids are stuck in the house with nothing to do. Maybe, your kids will now know. And remember what to do………..

The Gift Of West Virginia

As I sit watching the snow fall gently across the yard. And watching the birds feed on that little bit of bread crumbs I put out for them this morning. I think back

To when I was a young boy and couldn’t wait to go outside and play. And now as each day goes by I wonder how the time will change me even more. Every gray hair and gray whisker that sets in. reminds me of how we let the time slip by not enjoying the things we use to. And wondering what to do because we have nothing to entertain us. What’s on television, what’s online, what trip to take, where to go, what to do. I remember when I was young I could spend hours just playing with dirt and completely happy and free of all worry. Of course I never really understood anything about the world at that point of time in my life. I know now that if you want something in life you have put forth a hell of a lot of effort sometimes to get what you desire in life. But we go through life pushing and shoving to get to here and there. We are always in a hurry! People complain of how they hate this town. But I can tell you those people never take the time to actually stop and smell the flowers, watch the birds, or take a hike through the beautiful country we have in our backyard. What ever happened to helping your neighbors out when the wind blows a trash can over into the street and someone runs over it with their car because they don’t have the time to stop and set it up out of the road. There are few people that have realized what we have in this beautiful valley of National Forest. People would pay lots of money to have what we have or live where we live. And we take it for granted each and everyday of our lives. I look around and see a gift from God shining down on us everyday. When I look out the window and see the Sun rise and the Fog lift out of the gorgeous Mountain View I have from my window. The clean smell of the Mountain air after a fresh snowfall, the smell of the flowers from the Rosie Sharon in the spring. The beautiful bloom of the rhododendrons .The people of this town are blessed to be part of this. With no cost at all just a little of your time to stop and enjoy it. So the next time you are feeling blue because you can’t afford to take that trip to somewhere else. Stop and take the time to look around and enjoy the gift that West Virginia gives us everyday of our lives.
