The World Outside Looks So Unkind I’m Countin’ On You To Carry Me Through

So if you're the praying type, please pray for me. I took a detour on my way to the office this morning to gather myself. My boss let me know yesterday that conveniently he would be in the office today. It's been months since we've seen each other and now of ALL days, I'll have … Continue reading The World Outside Looks So Unkind I’m Countin’ On You To Carry Me Through

And All We Wanna Do Is Get By Today Heyyy We’re Gonna Have A Good Day And Ain’t Nobody Gotta Cry Today

I cut myself short about my day yesterday. Probably because I was so concerned about the rat and couldn't think straight. But what I also did was call a few places looking to get the kids and I in for counselling. I've realized that I've been doing so much damage to them by freaking out … Continue reading And All We Wanna Do Is Get By Today Heyyy We’re Gonna Have A Good Day And Ain’t Nobody Gotta Cry Today

I Finally Understand For A Woman It Ain’t Easy Trying To Raise A Man You Always Was Committed / Ain’t A Woman Alive That Could Take My Mama’s Place

Ten years. That's a long time. But I've managed to raise Little E a whole successful ten years as of last Thursday when we celebrated his birthday. No broken bones. No stitches. No visits to the principles office at school. No drug or alcohol abuse. Just a healthy active 10 year old boy who likes … Continue reading I Finally Understand For A Woman It Ain’t Easy Trying To Raise A Man You Always Was Committed / Ain’t A Woman Alive That Could Take My Mama’s Place

I’ve Been Here Before A Few Times And I’m Quite Aware We’re Dying

Can I just be honest for a minute? I mean all my posts are brutally honest but for real today... and for to long lately, I've been really struggling with feelings of deep inadequacy. Like straight STRUGGLING. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy and doing well, but a person can have more than one feeling … Continue reading I’ve Been Here Before A Few Times And I’m Quite Aware We’re Dying

I Hope You Both Feel The Sparks By The End Of The Drive I Hope You Know She’s The One By The End Of The Night

I haven't just written about what's going on in my life lately. Today, my kids are attending their official last day of school. Z is done grade 1 and Little E has completed grade 4. It seems necessary to mark this occasion after the whirlwind of a season we've been through in this last little … Continue reading I Hope You Both Feel The Sparks By The End Of The Drive I Hope You Know She’s The One By The End Of The Night

I Know You’re Built To Love, But Broken Now, So Just Try, Yeah I know You’re Chokin’ On Your Fears

So never in my wildest dreams did I expect this to happen. We went to get the mail yesterday and there were a few small packages in it, one for each of the kids and myself. From E. Not gonna lie at first I was like wtf? For a quick instant I was like is … Continue reading I Know You’re Built To Love, But Broken Now, So Just Try, Yeah I know You’re Chokin’ On Your Fears

My Mama Loves, She Loves Me She Gets Down On Her Knees And Hugs Me She Loves Me Like A Rock She Rocks Me Like The Rock Of Ages

Totally not the topic of my post but I’m at Starbucks writing this morning, since I’m meeting with a friend. Normally when I come and write here, I order my drink in a porcelain cup, you know to save the environment and not use a plastic cup and lid. So I order as per usual, … Continue reading My Mama Loves, She Loves Me She Gets Down On Her Knees And Hugs Me She Loves Me Like A Rock She Rocks Me Like The Rock Of Ages

Stay With Me Let’s Just Breathe / Did I Say That I Need You? Did I Say That I Want You?

My, oh my. Work this week was... interesting to say the very least. So to give some context (not that it makes what happened better, but you’ll understand more) I work in a small office. A very small office. Just myself, my coworker J, and my boss A. A’s wife comes in maybe once a … Continue reading Stay With Me Let’s Just Breathe / Did I Say That I Need You? Did I Say That I Want You?

I Heard Her Praying / And The Tears That She Shed Still They Still Linger In My Head

Heads up, on Little E’s iPad again so prep for an awful lay out since I’m not tech savvy enough to attempt to figure out how to fix this. Each time I click return to start a new paragraph it starts a new post instead 🤔. Okay, so last night.... last night last night last … Continue reading I Heard Her Praying / And The Tears That She Shed Still They Still Linger In My Head
