In absolute darkness I sit
Awaiting your caress
Silent prayers whispered
That mundane thoughts soon will turn to words
Fatigue clouding my cognitive
Obscurity still stealing the show
Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing women out there! You deserve this day, and everyone in between.
I am up early as is usual, and couldn’t go back to sleep; so I decided to look through old pictures and of course they were filled with images of the girls at 6 pounds or so. Amazing how time flies and how truly blessed I am to be (their) mom. I can’t help but be truly thankful and count my very many blessings. Such a great honor mommy hood has bestowed on me, and I am sure many mothers will agree.
What is our good fortune but these ones
Who welcome, and celebrate us with I LOVE YOU
On tough hard days
And the many light ones in between
How fortunate we are
These priceless hearts
Beating love and affection
Happily calling us (their) mom
Today as we celebrate all our amazing mothers, let us go the extra step to celebrate them daily…perhaps not with all the pomp and attention today gets but still with all the gratitude and genuine love.
Have a very blessed and happy mother’s day!
I will like to go to a café with you
On a mid-Wednesday morning like this
Sip on hot cocoa creamy smooth and brown as you
Nibble sweetly at bits of marble coffee cakes
Strawberry glaze staining my happy lips pink
*I was in the city on Sunday, and saw the name of a cute cafe, Bale Cafe, and this poem was born *
It must always be said, it can never be said enough, and so as often as I possibly can I say THANK YOU!
For always stopping by, reading, liking, commenting, and offering your friendship & support.
In the midst of life’s chaos, and the many stresses of adulthood, this platform brings me to my centered joy. I find myself smiling like a darling child when I am reading your comments, and posts. Thank you all so much.
I have not been able to respond to all comments as I would like or visit new followers as I should, but I am most grateful.
Have a wonderful Monday and a lovely week. God bless
Thank You Always!
There is no doubt in my mind, that I am a loved girl. The wonderful messages of support and love I received following my mini meltdown last Saturday has done more than I could have ever expected or asked for.
I wrote just to ease my mind but your comments, messages,and words of encouragement did more than ease my mind, they lifted my spirits and made me truly thankful. I find myself going back to read the comments, and I cannot tell you enough how truly blessed I am to have you all in my life. THANK YOU!!!
I am truly honored to be a part of this wonderful community and I am genuinely humbled to be friends with such amazing, generous, and kind people. My heart will be forever grateful, thanks so much for making me feel better.
A big shout out to all who have followed and visited my blog in the past few weeks. I am hoping to stop by your blogs soon, and also get back to writing. Many thanks.
There are days and weeks that are longer and tougher than others…and such has been the past week…so it was no surprise when I woke up with tears at the pit of my tired throat.
This will come as news to anyone who has been around me today because I am the queen of keeping it all in; I truly believe as adults there are some things we deal with, adjust, adapt… but today I was worn…
I didn’t want to bother the girls because they are babies and they have been worried about me all week…telling their teachers their mom’s back is hurting and she has to go to the doctor, and asking that they pray for me…the Mr. has his plate full as well…so the adult in me kept it all in…
Today however, it was a struggle and so when I left the house for a training class…I knew I needed a good cry…either of my sisters would be great listening ears…but I wanted to be a child and just cry…let it all out without necessarily talking…so I called my dad.
Truth is I am still his child…I always will be, and so I dialed his number without knowing what I was going to say…we talked for a bit and then I burst into tears….I tried to explain the tears but there was no use…
Bless my dad’s heart, one of his many strengths is his quiet spirit and so he listened as I talked and cried…he let me have at it without interrupting…and then like the blessing that he will always be, he encouraged, and prayed with me.
I didn’t feel perfectly better, but I was grateful for the moment to just be his daughter…his child…not wife…not mom…not employee… not busy…not uncertain and unsure….just a child who needed a good cry and listening ears…I pulled myself together after I hung up and went about my day.
My drive home tonight wasn’t as bad and I was just glad I had a home and loving family to go to…then Tenth Avenue North’s “Worn” came on the radio and I had another good cry…the song speaks to me and just how I feel many days…I guess some days just need a good cry and reality check that I am only human…today was one…and I can’t wait to go to bed and just let it all out for the last time…
Lord willing come tomorrow…the sun will shine and hope, grace, strength, and love will be restored….

Kudos to the efforts of women, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, partners, ladies, and girls on the road to being women.
Regardless of our race, color, culture, accent, look, size, economic background, and or social status among other things that seek to define or limit us, we are beings of excellence, and virtue.
The world is better because YOU (WE), woman are in it.
We are life’s breath…we are nature in itself…
Life resides inside of us.

WE ROCK INSIDE AND OUT!!
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!!!
I had the most beautiful day all thanks to God, and you all. I ate, laughed, danced, played, got teary eyed, and all in all had fun.
My day was taken to a new height of gratitude with a wonderful poem I got from my dearest Twinnie; and I thought to share with you all. Thanks so much I am truly grateful, God bless!!!
Once upon a March 1st
Not too long ago
A beautiful sweet mother so full of glow
To deliver they go
While angels from heaven
So full of glee
Celebrate the chosen baby
to ride the sunbeam
A blessing sent to earth
Momma’ gives birth
Calls her living angel
Written by the talented Rosy, thanks Twinnie
Happy birthday to ME!!!
I am a year older, with the hopes of becoming a little wise, so the days leading up to my birthday; I am excited, reflective, giddy, and downright grateful. So many blessings in my life, and today I take time to appreciate and take them all in. I won’t get another birthday until next year Lord willing, so the plan is to soak in all the love, and joy this day brings. (My almond coconut cake with white chocolate filling and finish should play a HUGE role in the joy).
I often try to ponder on thoughts as I grow, although the delivery guy asked me yesterday; if I was at least 21 and old enough to sign for a package…I thought I am at least 16… (Even if for the 100th time.)
This year I am pondering on Psalm 90 verse 12, I especially like the New English Translation; it reads “So teach us to consider our mortality, so that we might live wisely” I pray it comes true for me going forward. I pray I open my eyes to the limitless possibilities around me however short life is…I pray more than ever that I fulfill destiny…it is the cry of my heart… it is the deepest desire of my soul.
Today as I mark another year in my blessed life, I ponder on the bible verse shared above, and joyfully celebrate this moment. Thank you all so much for the calls, messages, and outpour of love. I am one loved girl.
Happy birthday to ME!!!
Congratulations to Ms. Cathy Ulrich, winner of the anniversary giveaway…and as a bonus for being my longest reader, and for a while silent follower Ms.Rosy Shea also gets a small token of love, and appreciation.
MANY THANKS TO YOU FOR THE LOVE, SUPPORT, FRIENDSHIP, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND SO MUCH MORE. I had planned to take today’s post to the next level by doing a video with me reading one of my poems, and then expressing some words from my heart, but I didn’t get to it (or maybe i chickened out). Still my heart thanks you all so much.
Glasses raised to you. God bless
