Hi! I don’t know where to begin… First and foremost, if you’ve stumbled across my blog, you will probably read several stories about my son. I’m a single mom (for 11 years) and my son is my heartbeat. It is because of him, that through the toughest times of my life, I am very much in fact, still here. He has reached an age where he is better able to communicate and he trusts me fully. He shares his secrets (for now) and tells me things he can’t/won’t talk to anyone else about. He hasn’t had the easiest life so far, but from here on out, I plan on doing it right. Not that there’s a right and wrong when it comes to parenting. There’s what works and what doesn’t. Now that I’ve rid my life of all the negative people, and things (Facebook) that have cause me to be so distant from him, I’ll stick to what works. I found it, and I’m not going to let go.
Secondly, you must realize that writing is simply in my DNA. Even driving down the road, I’m forever forming posts, writing letters, or adding new ides to my book in my mind. When I return home, I write it all down. It’s an addiction. If I’m not writing, you know something’s wrong. I was published in a children’s magazine YEARS ago. I have since gotten away from writing for children, and have started to flirt with the idea of writing nonfiction for adults. I’d love to tell you the genre, but I don’t quite know that there is one for all that I’m writing.
We are far from religious, but we do practice Buddhism on a daily basis. If you know about Buddhism, you’ll know that it isn’t a religion. It’s living your life in kindness; to others as well as yourself. Thoughts do in fact become things. What you put out to the universe is what will come back to you. So, if you wake up in a rotten mood and take it out on those around you, don’t be surprised when you’re met with the same. However, if you wake up, grateful for the day ahead, the roof over your head, the food in your stomach, the loved ones surrounding you than expect more of it.
After 35 years, and countless failed relationships (including one marriage), I think I’ve finally found the real thing. The “Out of the ball park” kind of love. The ups with the downs, but at the end of the day, we both know where the others head is going to rest. Being a VERY private person, He’d probably be a bit upset if he knew I even wrote that, so I’ll leave it at that.
I hope you enjoy what you read here, because I certainly enjoy writing it. Happy blogging!!
