Monthly Feature: The Possibilities

Snippet of something I’m working on… …You’re such a better manipulator than me. I thought I did this so well. You’ve taught me that I’m a pure amateur. I give pieces of me to get the pieces I want most from others. You give nothing and get everything… You truly are a master… Remember, the…

The Trade-Off

New things never stay new… Things that once were the best thing ever, get forgotten by the next best thing. You once were the new shiny bright thing. You’ve now become this thing of having no real value or use. I once thought that finding out you deceived yourself was one of the worse feelings…

Monthly Feature: The Possibilities

Snippet of something I’m working on… It’s funny how remnants of your past can creep back in your life in new forms. It’s almost as if you can see it coming a mile away, yet you still open the door. You still welcome and invite it, as if the outcome will be different but you…

He’s 16 today

On this day 16 years ago your grandmother giggled away and your grandfather used my oxygen mask as you made your grand entrance into the world. Your grandfather did the honors of cutting the cord and then one day I blinked. I blinked and you couldn’t fit on my hip anymore. I blinked and you…

#WeekendCoffeeShare – His Grand Entrance

If you were here I’d ask how was your grand entrance? Did your parents meet you there? How happy were you to see them together, just to welcome you? I’d ask how it felt when the next person you met was him? I imagine he extended his hand to you and pulled you in for…

Music is one of my greatest loves…

Music moves me constantly. I have different playlists, I’ve handcrafted myself just for my many different moods. Some are named after people I know because when I play them it makes me feel closer to them. Some speak to me in volumes because the songs seem to be something I could have written myself or…

Monthly Feature: The Possibilities

Snippet of something I’m working on… I’m afraid of the worst kind of alone. The alone where you live, form bounds, make memories and then say goodbye. But, a forever goodbye. I’m afraid that I will grow old and gray and lose count of the goodbyes I’ve said in this lifetime. Remember, the 23rd of…

Silence is Golden

Says the person who can talk forever about anything. After dealing with things in three’s, I’ve decided to “disconnect” so to speak. The 1st 24 hours were actually accidental but I quickly realized I’m not being bothered. Not with the Facebook and Instagram notifications. Not with the chain messages on messenger or the fake I’m…

Monthly Feature: The Possibilities

Snippet of something I’m working on… …Brian McKnight Never Felt This Way. Since I was a child I knew I wanted this song for my wedding day and here I am an adult and I still feel this way. I don’t mean the song we dance to either, no I want to walk down the…

Play with word count they say…

Everyday Inspiration: Day 13 – Play with word count (aiming for a 250-word count minus this intro) I had an appointment for the intake process for family counseling. I feel like we might be veering off course and I want to make sure we stay on the same page. I don’t want my kids afraid…

Over a cup of coffee

If we were having coffee right now, I’d tell you all about the new house. I’d tell you how I have so many ideas of what to do with the front and back yards. I can’t wait for the girls to come home and start helping me get it into shape. We need so much…

Wisdom comes by Disillusionment 

When you’ve been disillusioned you feel robbed… Imagine discovering/realizing you were the one to pull the deception on yourself…  You’re left to only aim disappointment at yourself; and, learn the mistake was when you began to expect…
