Lilac Bushes

Their scent takes me to a place that few other things can.

They were fairy tales in the reality.

They were fun in the serious.

They were creativity in the boring.

They were peace in the chaos.

They were comfort in the pain.

They were strength in the hardship.

They were security in the fear.

They were quiet in the storm.

They were joy in the sadness.

They were laughter in the tears.



They were my palace as a pauper.

They were my shelter from the storms.

They are the reason I am still alive.

And I will forever be grateful for the time I lived in the lilac bushes.



About Shannon Joy

I am a single mama with two incredible munchkins. I confuse most people and the deeper you delve into the rabbit hole, the more lost you will become. I play a lot, work a lot, learn a lot, volunteer a lot and tend to do a lot... I love my life. The past few years have been an incredible journey, full of ups and downs. Thankfully, I have made the choice to see challenges as opportunities and it makes me so much stronger than I ever thought possible. I love to write and paint and feel that being creative is my God-given talent. I am so excited to share my life and experiences with you. Although I am a diamond in the rough, I known that I am being chiseled and hewn by experiences and grace and perseverance. I love comments and feedback, so please send a little love when you can. I will always try to respond personally and in a timely fashion.
