Idle of Despair

"There are some things people don't deserve to know about you." Said with love from my honey and rolling around in my brain for months. I have debated discussing this topic. It's been written in my head a dozen times. I have jotted down the gist on multiple occasions. Each time, I have scratched it… Continue reading Idle of Despair

Status: Stalker

It doesn't take much for me to get excited.  It is about as easy as getting water out of a fountain. A water fountain, that is. "Is there another kind of fountain?" you ask. Um, yes... chocolate.  Chocolate fountain.  It is delicious and my mind always goes to chocolate.  But, I digress.  Back to excitement.… Continue reading Status: Stalker

Damn it, Donald

Dear Mr. President, I like to think of myself as an understanding and compassionate individual. I try to be fair when looking at a controversial situation; I truly want to see the other side.  To have an understanding of what has prompted a given response.  But, you sir, are making it extremely difficult to extend… Continue reading Damn it, Donald

Sober

I find myself debating: should I keep my mouth shut or speak my heart.  I mean, who really cares what some midwest momma thinks?  Not sure. I know that speaking on controversial… Continue reading Sober

#stophate Announcement!

#stophate has been weighing heavy on my heart.  For a lot of years.  But, more so recently.  I have never been sure what I could personally do.  I thought, "Let's open the dialogue." So, I started blogging about it. I realized that while communication is oh-so important, writing about #stophate just has not felt like… Continue reading #stophate Announcement!

Oops, I Did It Again

Damn it, y'all {and no, I am not southern, but the twang has a certain ring to a writer} this political biz-niss is making it real hard for a midwest blogger to keep quiet.   Donald Trump.  Woah, who just got angry from reading that first line?  But, if we are going to be fair,… Continue reading Oops, I Did It Again

No Words

Well, here I am about to comment on another 'news trending' topic.  I can't help it; my heart is heavy.   I have found myself reflecting over the last 48 hours since I heard the news in Charlottesville.  I must say I am speechless.  I don't quite know how to put into words the sadness… Continue reading No Words

Open Arms

I am not one who particularly enjoys posting on a 'hot to trot' topic like the ones currently trending on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook; but I feel that I have no choice given the hatred being spewed in oh- so -many directions. There are some days where I just want to ignore the news outlets… Continue reading Open Arms
