Me – A-Z

 

Avid reader

Brave, I like to feel the fear and do it anyway (As long as cockroaches and butterflies are not involved).

Cheerful (most of the time)

Dreamer

Enjoy cooking and baking

Fan of Stephen King

Goofball (sometimes…okay most of the time)

Happy (most of the time)

Intelligent (except during ‘Blonde Moments’)

Juicer ( I juice all kinds of veggies and fruits and drink a juice everyday)

Kindhearted (most people I know think so)

Love my family, friends, chocolate covered strawberries, animals, nature and basketball (Go Heat!).

Mondays I don’t have a problem with it’s Sunday nights I have a problem with because it’s the end of the weekend and I have to go to bed early, but I’m still on weekend mode!

Never underestimate the power of being kind – one of my mottos.

Rascal, my little toy Pomeranian

Saucy (sometimes)

Talented

Unique, understanding, unpredictable and upbeat.

Vivid imagination

Willing to try very hard to win over someone’s affection, but after so long – click – the switch is turned off – for good. I can only jump through hoops and bend over backward so much.

Xanthocomic (yellow-haired)

Yikes! (I couldn’t think of anything else for Y)

Zzzz – I love to read and sleep during thunderstorms.

Being a mother is an attitude, not biological relation.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein

(A short excerpt from my novel The Basement)

 

 

Robbie’s mom smiled and warmly hugged him. She was about to tell him to wash up for dinner when she realized something was wrong.
Robbie’s eyes betrayed recent tears.
“What happened Robbie?” she asked. She saw the answer to her question almost immediately.
Robbie’s knees were scraped and bloody.
Robbie’s mom quickly cleaned and patched up his wounded knees. All the while she sang to him and gazed at him with her serene blue eyes glittering with love. She reminded Robbie of a cherub.
She healed his wounded heart with her melody. Her song was comforting and her words heavenly. It did not matter to Robbie she was not a good singer.
~The Basement

 

 

 

Mom and Me

Best friends mom and me

Picking flowers and climbing trees.

A shoulder to cry on secrets to share

Warm hearts and hands that really care.

First Mothers’ Day

New mom.

New fun.

Long nights.

Short days.

Go back?

No way.
