It’s about time
September 16, 2013

20 years ago, I didn’t know at the time that I was preparing for this huge step. As I ask for assistance and people say of course I’ll help, my stomach turns with anxiety and excitement. There is a community of parents who make things happen because they have to. These parents are without significant support and means. I hear and am experiencing the call. DID I SAY THAT I AM EXCITED about what is to come? Stay tuned, and thanks for liking and following my blog.

Friends
January 4, 2013

I’m sitting here looking through pictures on others Facebook profile, and some people have been friends for a really long time. It makes me think about the people I choose to be with growing up, or those who were chosen for me.

As a 38 year old single woman, I long for companionship. I love being with my children, but there is a different vibe, and there should be, in the company of another adult (male or female). There’s a feeling of freedom, where I don’t have to explain or watch my tongue (that much).

I’m not living in a world of regrets, but in a place of real need. The community I seek is looking for me. All I have to do is listen for them, and be available when they arrive.

My daddy told me last night, that I never tell anybody everything about my personal business unless they are family, and even then, you hold back a little.

I’d like to believe that although one person will not know everything, there is nothing untold about my life. I see no reason to die with secrets.

So this brings me back to my (ill claim you now) friends who are waiting for me to be ready. 2012 ended with a huge lesson and 2013 has been followed up with relief, truth and honesty.
I can feel myself crashing against the other rocks, getting all polished and I can see them getting polished and shiny.

2013 I’m here.
