I recently had another one of those mommy moments when all I can think is, “I can’t believe this is my child.” Not in a bad way either. I’m not sure what I did to deserve such a wonderful child but I must have done something right. Just about every parent feels that way about their kids. Sometimes I think he’s helped me grow way more than I’ve helped him. Is that even possible? Continue reading ““There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.””
I’ve been listening to this song a lot the past few days. I believe you can fall in love with many different people and places and in many different ways. This song is pure in expressing self doubt, and the want to be accepted. At the same time admitting faults and still valuing those around us no matter what their opinion of us is. I think there is a message in this song that needs to be heard especially with some of the events going on today. We all interpret music in different ways. I hope in some way this encourages you today. Continue reading ““I’ve been told I am the problem And the problem’s my honesty””
I’m a woman.
“You’re not lady like. You’re too girly. You can’t play sports. You can’t like video games. You’re too pale. You shouldn’t get your hands dirty. You should be in the kitchen. You have to have a child, it’s your job. You can’t just have one child, you need another one. You can’t wear men’s clothes. You can’t wear that, it shows too much. Your hair is too short. You can’t drive. You can’t actually be just friends with a male. No man will want you with your reputation. You’re just here for amusement. You’ll just get used again because you’re trash.” Continue reading ““Strong people define themselves; weak people allow others to define them.””
I was working on another post in hopes of having it ready and uploaded by last Sunday. Obviously, that didn’t happen. My body decided that it wanted to shut down. It could be worse. I could have decided to take the cure for the common cold and turn into a zombie (Feed reference). Continue reading “Out of order, Please come again”
I didn’t wake up to a phone call this morning like I did 3 years ago. That was a relief. Last year, I stopped expecting bad things to happen on this day. I just thought that maybe if I didn’t expect bad things then it would be just like any other normal day. I tried that again this year but it didn’t work out as well. Continue reading ““All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”- Edgar Allan Poe”
Every year on September 9th, I try to do something special to remember my father’s life. I’m a day early this year but I decided to remember him by making a short video of his life. It’s impossible to try to explain how much of an inspiration he has been to me and many others…so I’ll let this do the explaining for me.
I normally love rainy days. I love listening to all of the different sounds and the peace that follows it. I often think about the brave young girl who would always run outside on a rainy day to welcome the storm with open arms. The girl that danced around barefoot in the mud, looking up at the sky as if she was trying to prove herself to the thunder. Every time it yelled out with anger, she would yell back with love. She was a free, untouched spirit. Sometimes, I miss that girl. Letting her out seems so hard these days but it’s not impossible.
