I ask, “Where are you going this Easter Day?” He says, “To ride in the sun, it’s a beautiful day!” He has on his gear, jacket and boots, He now has Wings But I gave him roots- His bike starts up, Va room, Va room, my heart starts to beat bah bah boom, bah bah […]

#4 spends most weekends with her boyfriend at his place that he shares with his mom. Yesterday was their first year anniversary. He is not very nice to her all the time….not like she is to him. I am praying for her, “perfect mate”….which I don’t think is him but who knows?? Maybe he will […]
We used to blow off work and go the amusement park do you remember that? We used to “not stop kissing each other”…… do you remember that? We used to put the kids to bed and sit on the porch on Friday nights and drink wine and talk about life like we were philosophers do […]
Crashing through the door Can’t take it anymore Filthy mouth, mean face, like a snake This is the Hell that you make But you shut down and don’t seem to care Sit in your chair just seem to stare Sun is shining but to you it’s rain You drive everyone here insane Your kids leave […]
When does a Mother’s Love Stop? Never. Baby boy, boy joy Baby girl, save that curl Sidewalk chalk and blow’in bubbles Gett’in into scrapes and troubles Car keys, starting to pray Graduation Day Buying for college, visiting the dorm Knowing that this is your new Norm Showing us the shiny ring Getting married hearts start […]
I had a birthday this week and the funny thing about it was I didn’t want to celebrate my expiration date!! However, my wonderful children bought me a massage, two different journals – one to write in and one to write what I was grateful for, a fabulous eye mask, a lavender candle and “healing […]
It’s been seven days since I have written on my blog and it makes me sad. I don’t know how people do it when they work in the service industry with their bodies. It’s so hard to do anything at all when you get off work except fall into bed!! That’s pretty much what I […]
I was at the grocery store on one of my days off and saw a lady that I sometimes work with. She is five years older than me. (gasp!!) She works for money sometimes and sometimes for wine. We were just exchanging pleasantries and then all of a sudden we discovered that we live so […]
I think everyone today is either happy or sad or scared. I think everyone is So Glad that the Presidential election is over even if their candidate of choice didn’t win. I did not stay up to find out. I found out this morning and was very surprised.
I watched both candidates’ speeches as well as the President’s. I think both candidates were quite gracious to one another.
I won’t say who I voted for.
I did cry when I heard Hillary’s speech. I would like to think that when she was young and idealistic and was just beginning her life she really had good intentions. I think that she gave all she could to America. The scandals that have swirled around her for years and years have tainted me a little toward her but at the heart of it, I want to think that she really does care about families and children.
I cried because I thought of how she was mistreated by her husband while she was The First Lady. I cried remembering how determined she was when we she became a Senator. I cried when remembering how she lost the first election she ran in. Losing twice must have been heart breaking.
I was not thinking of the country, I was thinking of Her. No matter what she has or has not done, she is still a person who has traveled the country and the world advocating for women and children and families.
I don’t know if she will stay in politics. I don’t know if that’s in her nature. I do hope she takes some time for herself to heal as well as enjoy her daughter and grandchildren. The past year and a half must have been grueling for her. I pray for peace for her….
