2AM Thoughts

When the last several days have taken every morsal of my strength, “relaxing” is a bit difficult to do. That’s me, right now… Two a.m. this Friday morning. On Sunday, my world took a spin when my ball joint (aka CV Joint I learned) went out on the driver side of my SUV… While I was driving it…with my two girls in the vehicle. I had been hearing a friction sound, something like metal rubbing up against a surface as if not enough space to “clear” without damaging it. I, mistakenly, had written it off as low power-stearing fluid. *Mental Note* It’s way more serious and … Continue reading 2AM Thoughts

#FF: Light Up the Water

Photo prompt ©️Carla Bicomong   As the families began to gather, Joshua became ever more humbled. These individuals hardly knew him; but, they could never forget his little Noah. His son  bestowed a special love to everyone he met. Wether a smile or a tight squeeze of a hug, he loved his way into everyones’ hearts. Twenty minuets later, there wasn’t standing room at the New York Harbor. Bittersweet moment.  “Excuse me.” Joshua began.”If I could have your attention, I’d like to begin lighting the lanterns. Once they’re all lit, Noah’s mother Kristen would like to say a prayer in rememberance.”  … Continue reading #FF: Light Up the Water

Disagreement Thereafter

She looked at him. He looked at her. Their eyes spoke of places they’ve vacationed, laughs they’ve had, and challenges they’ve triumphed. With a smile, subtle but genuine, she mumbled, “Your hand I will always take. Your heart I will always trust. Your love I will always call home. No matter what disagreement may come. I will always stay in this world of “me & you”… it’s the only place that makes sense. It’s the only place where I am whole.” He kissed her forehead, and the love birds strolled down the beach, hand in hand,.. on that perfect summer … Continue reading Disagreement Thereafter

The Red❣️White⚪️ & Blue🇺🇸

It’s not a national holiday. Nothing in particular triggered a need. It’s something I just want to do, and it’s honestly something I should do more frequently… 🕊❣️💙🕊❣️💙Thank you American Soldiers🕊❣️💙 🕊❣️💙 This country is the best place on this planet. Our freedoms are priceless privileges granted to us at birth. I listen to friends talk of their Homeland,.. and the struggles they face simply because that’s “the way it is”. We are so extraordinarily lucky to live in this country. If we don’t like a law, we can change it. If we don’t wish to continue a Catholic, we can choose a different path. That … Continue reading The Red❣️White⚪️ & Blue🇺🇸

The Circle Ends

So why do I say we’ve seemingly forgotten the concept of give and take? Because humans decide to do what’s best for him/herself. Because humans decide to be selfish and speak/act in such a way that suits his/her needs. Now, read that correctly. I said humans.. not “all” humans. SO HERE’s the catch: Some humans mistreat others. Some humans demonstrate ungratefulness and unkindness, violence, and self destruction. Some humans speak with arrogance and ignorance. And yet, they Complain when they’re taken for granted, backstabbed, abused. Wear the frown in their “dark and grey” world. Are confronted with friction from others, difficulty when needing help, and unforeseen … Continue reading The Circle Ends

The Endless Circle

Plants bloom and wilt. Babies are born, and people die. Structures go up, and buildings are torn down. The cycles in life seem to be continuous. In some instances, unfortunately, the cycle stops. Species of animals and plants become extinct. Imagine how these cycles would look if each participated with his/her own best interest at heart. How different would this world be if honey bees just decided not to pollinate. How ugly would this planet look if trees and grass, flowers, and water didn’t work together and provide for one another? What if the sun just stopped turning, and we were stuck in mid-darkness! The concept … Continue reading The Endless Circle

Day 14: Mommy Needs a Time Out

Good Morning:D It’s a grey and bleek Thursday morning here in my part of Ohio. I believe rain is to visit, periodically, this morning. While I had plans to invest some quality time into blogging, my daughters needed entertainment. I knew there was plenty for them to do. Something about mommy pulling out toys with a few added words sparks their imagination much more quickly. Growing up, I had 3 sisters and 4 brothers. I hated sharing toys. I hated when my mom would get impatient and tell us to go play. Now, I get it! Sometimes, every momma needs … Continue reading Day 14: Mommy Needs a Time Out

Friday Fictioneers: Slave Duties

Photo Prompt ©️Yvette Prior Thelma, Beatrice, and Georgette huddled in the back corner, awaiting the entrance of the Master’s wife , Angelica. She was the Lady of the House, and she conducted strict business with her “house slaves.” “I reckon you’re in for an awful slashin!”, Beatrice whispered to Georgette. “I pray for her mercy on you. Master & his wife always adding the distaste of untidiness in their stories away from home!”, Thelma added with empathetic eyes. “Georgette, come with me! NOW!” Angelica harshly demanded. The night before flashed through Georgette’s mind. Her unexpected visitor charmed her with many sensual distractions.   Continue reading Friday Fictioneers: Slave Duties

Depend on You

  “Wow, that’s high!”, thought the snail, “How will I ever eat now?” “You can ride on my shell!” the turtle exclaimed. ” To slow!” thought the snail. “You can sit on my wings!” the Robin added. “To fast!” thought the snail. The only reasonable answer the snail 🐌 could find is to inch her way up all on her own. She’s never too slow, where the meal becomes ruined; or she has to make it first. She’s never too fast, where the meal has yet to arrive, when she’s hungry. She proudly learned to depend on herself.   Continue reading Depend on You

Day Nine

Prompt: Do you communicate differently online than you do in person?: I don’t feel that I do. While growing up, my mother always said, “You’re never going to know who you are.” 🤔 That really annoyed me. It upset me moreso, though, because the way my life was going, it was completely true. I had no time to be a child, explore hobbies, participate in clubs or groups. I didn’t have the freedom to make mistakes and learn. That’s shit my parents couldn’t deal with because they chose to have 8 kids. To slide away from the cynical, it wasn’t … Continue reading Day Nine

Preparing for Back-to-School Germs

Oh yes, we all know children share every possible germ they carry. When Mid-August rolls around, those musinex snotty bugger things start making their ugly appearances.

Going Back to School 2018

Parents, This year has been my very first experience with this part of parenting. Every year before, I’ve always felt annoyed with how “in your face” stores seemed to be about it. I suppose the hype from the ridiculous list contributed to my cause of irritability. Today, while in Family Dollar, I pulled up that trusty ol School Supplies List… And I felt as if I just landed in Tibet! “What on earth type of pencil sharper? “, I mumbled to myself. “A tablet? Kindergarters have a tablet on the list” I explained in hysteria (little me.. In my head). … Continue reading Going Back to School 2018

A Heart that Listens

Imagine for a moment, A single moment in time, When all the distractions And nonsense noise, Spontaneously stopped, Even the birds are silent. Imagine that atmosphere, We see and nothing said, All that’s been muffled Has now taken on this life. Would we notice that lady crying, Would we help the man in pain, How much more could we do How much more we would gain. We would see the elderly struggling, We would see her sudden change We would watch his self distraction, And just maybe offer a hand to hold. Maybe We’d hug fellow strangers, Maybe We’d smile … Continue reading A Heart that Listens

Day Six

Prompt: How do you respond to change? Like most people, I hate it. Change creates uncomfortablility. Too much of that at once makes me feel numb. I don’t flip out and act hysterical. I don’t run around screaming and react how one typically would. When life hands me the unknown, my brain battles between emotions and logic. It’s vital for me to know certain details. Because I feel so much, the more I know, the more prepared I am to handle situations. Depression can be tough sometimes, but I’ve gotten through some hella high waters. Now, on the contrary, I … Continue reading Day Six
