GRANDPARENT HEAVEN: POEMS - A Life's Journey: Son,
In Grandparent Heaven, Sepala Weliwitigoda’s second collection of poetry, he continues to capture snippets of everyday life as seen through the lens of irony. This beautifully written book allows you to witness the range of emotions the author expresses as a son, father, grandfather, and husband.“Grandparent Heaven,” with its innocent charm, provides a window into the give-and-take of multiple generations playing together. “Gold Medal,” juxtaposes a child’s determination at a soccer game, and his grit and determination, with the rural, relaxed charm of farm country.Many of the poems in Grandparent Heaven, center around nature. The price one pays for an urban lifestyle is explored in “Leftover Maple Syrup.” “The Bee” looks at nature as an almost humanized force with God-given instincts.“Angels and Prophets” is a haunting and poignant glimpse into the multi-dimensional world of a cemetery and its inhabitants. And, “The Long Table,” takes the reader full circle from a life born from nature to a manmade treasure that bears witness to generations.Grandparent Heaven will charm you, make you sit back and wonder, and challenge you to see a new order, all in one volume that is both tender and wise. —- Melanie Rose White

Home Cabin Décor Living Life by Bonnie Mohr
Life is not a race ~ but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say "thank you", "I love you", and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given, it is not accidental ~ search for your purpose and do it as best you can. Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free. Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself ~ plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know. Live for today, enjoy the moment. ~ Bonnie Mohr
