📸♥️🌹AND NOW, THE FINAL PHOTO OF THE DAY, BY JENN W…🌹♥️📸


One Sunday morning, just before I was to enter inside church, I took this photo of a blooming magnolia; the blooming of this flower represents something in which I am happy to share with you throughout the past 6-1/2 years that I have been blogging with you, and that has now come to an end: The sharing of each and every photograph that I had taken. I am so very happy to have shared something like this with you all this time…

Meanwhile, this blooming magnolia, which has long been a symbol of the first state called Delaware, also represents the fact that there are going to be a whole new world of opportunities related to writing that are just waiting for me to explore; So with that, as one door is about to close on June 14th, another door is going to be wide open for me as well as, I hope, a bright future ahead of me.

Once again, I have enjoyed sharing my Photos-of-The-Day with all of you for the past 6-1/2 years. And now, there happens to be one more picture that I would very much like to see, and that happens to be a happy and blessed future just simply waiting for me…

This Ole House (In Delaware)…


Almost every day during my bus ride to work, I pass by a certain house that my family and I used to live, and one that is located in our old address in Magnolia, Delaware…

You see, there was also something special about that house: It was that old house where my uncle and aunt took me in after the tragic, unexpected death of my stepfather in late December of 2011; But there was also something else special about the house that me and my family used to live in-It was where I had launched this here WordPress-hosted blog, almost a year after my stepfather’s death, in November of 2012. Yes, I launched my blog, first called Dream in Music and now called KALEIDOSCOPE, right there in that old house…

But then, in 2014, my family and I had gotten word that we had to move away, and so in the summer of that year, we had moved away from our old house in Magnolia, Delaware, and into a townhouse somewhere in Camden, DE; Let me tell you, that move was kind of a hard one, and it would certainly take us, I think, a few months before we could ever adjust to that new house…

However, we would only live in that house for a year and a half, and the reason for this is that my uncle began to have difficulties with it, and I am thinking that those difficulties have to do with his health, and I do not think that that townhouse would be appropriate for his own safety and health.

And so, in February, 2016, we moved out of that townhouse for good, and then we had moved into a small, no-upstairs house in Felton, Delaware, and believe it or not, we are still living here this very day…

Now getting back to that first house in which I had lived with my family…nearly every morning during my bus ride to work, I would pass my our old Magnolia, DE house; As I am getting ready to bid goodbye to blogging and WordPress in a few weeks, I began to look at that house and started to feel like if it was only yesterday when I had published my very first post at that old house all of those 6-1/2 years ago…

💔 FALLING APART?💔

Despite the many flaws that they have inside, I love my family so very much; Right after the sudden death of my stepfather in December of 2011, my uncle, aunt, and cousins welcomed me with open arms as well as warm hearts. In the few early years that I have been living with my family, I would go with my aunt and uncle on adventure trips, in places such as Rehoboth Beach and even New York City in December of 2012 to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. And yes, I even went on some journeys with them to Dover Days right here in Dover, Delaware…

But as those early years went by, my own family began to change: My first cousin had suddenly impregnated a young woman, in which he suddenly became a single father, and my 2nd cousin had since moved away from us and has now been living on his own. And what is even more, my uncle, aunt, and I do not ever go on trips anymore, and that is because they have now suddenly become grandparents, and they now have a grandson to help their son take care of, and now HE is the one who is going on trips with them.

And do you want to know something else? I really and truly want to talk to my family and to tell them what is exactly wrong with them, as well as asking them why they are acting this way; But do you want to know what their answer is? All they would ever say is: “Nothing”! They act as if they do not want to talk about anything that’s wrong in their lives, and to me that just simply breaks my heart.

Christians are supposed to lend a caring hand, because that is what we have been told to do in the Holy Bible-to help our fellow man. I have somehow been having this tremendous wanting to help my uncle and aunt, just in the same way that I had wanted and have been helping my stepfather whenever there is any time of trouble; I wanted to simply just ask them both that if they are in trouble and that they would very much like to talk to someone about it, they should please come to me. I want to help them, but I might be too scared of doing so, because of their loud voices and their continuous use of profanity. But regardless, my own heart wants to say to me that I should not be afraid of them, and that I should do something to help my uncle and aunt open up their shut-up hearts as well as their own problems to me.

I love my family with all of my heart and soul, and still do; But in truth, I do not know how much longer I would put up with their toxic behaviors. As of this moment in time, I am still working at my job, as food service cleaner for the company Sodexo at the Patterson Dining Facility at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, DE, and I am hoping to have enough money to have a place of my own in the very next year or so. But in the midst of that thought, I began to feel emotional about this, because if and when I finally have a place to live, then I would not ever be able to be around to help my family ever again. On the other side of my brain, I dream of one day leaving this family and to finally live a quiet, spiritual life once again, and this time I would hope to do so in a one-bedroom apartment.

But to tell you the honest truth, I am in a struggle between these two sides of my brain while I wonder which side of my own brain would very much want me to do first and foremost of all. Well, somehow, someway, before I myself plan on moving away, I have got to help my family open up their hearts to me, no matter how long it would very well take…♥️

My Next (Possible) Vacation…

“If you could pack up and leave on vacation today, where would you be off to?” 

    Well, considering THAT kind of question, I would certainly have an answer that goes a little something like this:
Once upon a time, back in 2013, I went on my first solo vacation, and it was a special place that has been a very popular vacation spot for those who live in the tri-state area, especially Philadelphia: Wildwood, NJ, a place that has also been mentioned in a certain song by Bobby Rydell, “Wildwood Days”; I have had a great time on my first solo vacation there, riding some of the rides and even tasted their pizza, as well as relaxing on the beach…
Then, four years later, I went to Rehoboth Beach, which is located in Sussex County in Delaware; I had made a plan as to which I should do throughout my vacation week there, and I have made very good on my plans: I went to its famous Tanger Outlet Stores, then the Rehoboth Beach Museum, and the beach, among those that I had done what I had planned to do down there; Basically, I good time has been had by yours truly.

    Now, with the fact that I shall be closing down this here blog next month, it could be possible that I could finally spend the rest of my free time traveling, and if there was one place that I would very much like to travel to right now, it would be Ocean City, Maryland; At this point in time, I do not plan on going on any vacation this year, but in the next, say, six months after shutting down my blog, I would be making plans to go on vacation next summer, either to Wildwood, NJ or to Ocean City, MD, but that is going to be a long way off before I plan on making plans to go on next summer’s most exciting vacation.
A vacation is something in which creates memories that families and some people would have something to remember their most glorious time by. Life here on this great earth of ours is fragile, so the very best way for us to prove that fact is to enjoy ourselves with the very best things in life for as long as we ever can; The same can surely be said of taking summer vacations.
