Weekly Photo Challenge Late: Unusual

This photograph reminds me of one of my favorite poems.  It is something to think about anytime you get caught up in the mainstream guilt of never doing quite enough in your life or in this world.  This poem really says it all in the grand scheme of things.  I never realized this as I “accidentally” leaned my homemade trellis against my garage one day when storm clouds came into view, planning to finish it later.  It had a very convenient overhang that kept all these little ones dry in the storm.  I looked out to see them all sitting there and took this shot with my telephoto from my house.  Unusual enough to make me dig out the camera for this shot and I felt happy for them that I did this.  I ended up leaving it here for the summer.

If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking

by Emily Dickinson

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching,

or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin unto it’s nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

Daily Prompt: You’re a Winner!

OMG!!

No, seriously, it could not have happened at a better time in my life since I’m about to be evicted by years end, jobless and penniless.  I am so thankful that I finally won a lotto of any kind, since I’ve been buying tickets for many years now.

As an ex employee of the IRS, not sure how you guys got past the whole tax thing, unless this is a billion dollars after tax.

The first thing I’m going to do is pay off this house that I could no longer afford and then give it to a needy vet with some money in a bank account for the first few years until they get settled in.  Then I’m pulling up all the info I have on some folks that I’ve always wanted to help if I get the money.  Some are strangers, some acquaintances, but all with various financial needs like a local woman who died from an accident years ago in Dearborn and she had two small boys she wanted to send to college one day.  There are those in my family that are mentally ill that need to be taken care of.  I would take care of all my family and friends, as well as the local food banks and Christian shelters in the area.

There is a lot of needy people in this world and thank God that someone like me has finally won a lot of money so a lot of good can be done instead of those that waste the money on big houses and fast cars and drugs.  Thank you God in the name of Jesus, I can finally make a difference to many of your other needy people in this world.meface

I hope this isn’t some kind of a Daily Post hoax because I will be despondently disappointed.
