My morning routine is usually always the same. I get up an hour before my kids so I can drink a cup of coffee and try to wake up before the morning chaos begins. I used to scroll through Facebook while I drank my coffee. Sadly, it is the epitome of past generations reading the … Continue reading Generation “Smart Phone”
Tiny hands and tiny toes These are by far the things that matter most. They hold on tight But not too close I will be sad when you don’t need me most. Your eyes light up when I walk into a room And as I walk away, you start to cry. I never knew I … Continue reading Never Grow Up
There once was a time When I was yours and you were mine. It doesn't seem like long ago. Sometimes I miss it and others I don't Because some things end when they can't go on. At first I thought it could be fixed But it turns out that was not our niche. You didn't … Continue reading Late Bloom
This was me. I was tired and I was restless. You don’t really think to relate those two words. When you are tired, you are down but when you are restless, you feel like you are all over the place. These words and feelings should never coincide. It is like constant fight or flight. It … Continue reading BLESSED + CURSED:
I remember this day like it was yesterday. I was fifteen years old and all my friends were older than me. It was the school year that everyone started driving. We got the taste of freedom that we ached for. Our existence was consumed by bad rap music, fast food drive thru food, and jumping … Continue reading This Was Never Supposed To Happen
I'm a very indecisive person. My brain is always going 90 to nothing. One minute I am a wishful entrepreneur and the next, I am writing a poem that came out of left field. That is my "normal" though. With three kids, I am constantly on the go. My thoughts are as scattered as … Continue reading I am always one to loose focus…
So I disappeared for a minute. It seemed as if all of February and half of March, my kids were sick. They had a "flu-like" virus that lingered for almost a month. Many sleepless nights and breathing treatments later, they are all well. We are currently "quarantined." I am taking everything day by day. This … Continue reading Is This A Dream?
Maybe it isn’t a break that I need Or possibly it was just to plant a new seed. I remember growing up with dreams But everything changed as I got older it seems. The reality of life will strike you to your core Until you aren’t aware of who you are anymore. I don’t remember … Continue reading Blue

Okay, so we are gonna get a little personal here and it may or may not be partly funny. It could also be more ridiculous than funny. I love Pinterest and no, that isn't the funny part. I think that most women do love it. I mean, who doesn't want to create their dream house … Continue reading
I’m from the armpit of the South. We have two seasons in Alabama. Winter and Summer. But there’s a small in between that shows up here and there. It’s my favorite time of the year. SPRING! Today is the first day that it will briefly pass through before the rain comes to stay for a … Continue reading Fifth Monday of 2020
Why do we compare ourselves to others? That is a simple answer. In 2020, we have access to everyone. All it takes is a simple follow or a click of a button. I used to scroll through Facebook and look at everyone's family vacation pictures. My kids would be sitting across the room eating their … Continue reading Don’t Wait
The full 8-digit date today is a palindrome: 02022020. The next ones will be December 12, 2121 and March 3, 3030. It looks like this will be the first and last one I will see. The last palindrome day was 11/11/1111. Plus, I hit 200 likes! What a neat coincidence. So, thank you to my … Continue reading Happy Palindrome Day!
My marriage failed. I failed my marriage. I could say it a million different ways but in all reality it all comes down to the same results. I was nineteen when we met. We were married by the time I was twenty-one. We got married in May. We moved into our first home together with … Continue reading Getting Through My Seperation
