It is April of  2019. The year that marks my 65th trip around the sun.  Somehow, I always knew that I would make this landmark. There was never a doubt in my mind. The first 65 years have been trouble free. Moderate medical issues. One simple surgery in 2017.  This year will also mark 47 years of marriage to one man. Give me a standing O now, please! It’s incredible to recognize that I’ve know this man for almost 50 years. I don’t regret one single day. Not one.  Sure, there have been times that were filled with questions and struggles. But there have been so many more days that we’re fun filled, raising our two perfect children, living the life of suburbia, two working parents doing their best. Usually, I like to make a big deal about my birthdays. Especially after the surprise party when I was seven years old.  See, my parents were getting divorced at the time of my 7th birthday, Enter my Uncle Frank and Aunt Evelyn to the rescue.  Major distraction to get me out of

Meet Molly!

Little Molly was rehomed just about a year ago From a neighbor down the street. Single mother of 3 children could no longer take care of Molly. An email champaign circulated our neighborhood, Once I saw her photo, I immediately said I want her. Next day I walked over to the house to greet Molly. I sensed some shyness and apprehension on Molly’s part But my dedication in making her feel special was my only concern. Today, she’s a very happy, secure and faithful little Havvie.

Does Anyone Read This Any more?

I feel the need to share again. To put my thoughts on the table for those to read. Nothing earth shattering, I don't think, but none the less, I feel the need. Turmoil? Unrest? No...perhaps wishing for a little more happy in my life. How do I find a little more happy? You can't rely on other people to make you happy. Happiness comes from within.  Happiness comes from myself.  I am responsible for my own happiness.  There it is. How shall I proceed to find that happiness?  Getting involved in my creative side?  Allowing that instinct to flow once again? Since the company I worked for closed last year, I have felt as though there was a void in my life.  The void stems from not having that financial security I once had.  Oh, I have a part time job in a field I never thought I'd enter.  Food industry.  It's fun actually, but I'm sure that is because I work with a awesome woman who is my friend.  A person I thought would never give me the time of day.  She's

Calm Before The Storm

Is it because you feel small?  Is it because you fell I inadequate?  Do you not look at both sides of a story?  Let's just go first to violence. Innocent business owners don't deserve this violence. They are small business owners.  Hard working people. Whites. Blacks. Latino. Ruin their lives because clearly you do not know the facts. 12 people spent 70 hours listening to 60 witsnesses over a period of time. Yeah, you know better.

Forge Ahead

The last couple of days have been hard ones. This may be contributed to the tons of rainy weather, But I think that's just an excuse. I'm waiting for the things I need, because I think it is time. He has another plan. I will plow ahead.

It's Friday ...

* When did my husband start falling asleep at 8:00? * TV sucks on Friday night, guess that's why everyone goes out * Come on people, Atlanta barely received a millimeter of ice, what's the problem with the news? * Yes, I made my appointment for my mammogram's Tuesday, wish me luck! * I really dislike Sharktank. * Who knew Catfishing had nothing to do with fish? * I think I can read my cat's mind. He thinks I'm cool. * Whenever I'm on the upward side of being sick, I want fried rice.

Merry Christmas to All

Merry Christmas to Family and Friends....
