Finding A Little Joy

On April 1st, yes "April Fool's Day", my washer and dryer were damage when my basement flooded. Since then, I've had to go to the laundromat until I can afford to fix or replace mine. This isn't all bad because I bring a book to read or my tablet to play games on. Typically, there are very few people there when I normally go in the morning. My favorite part of doing laundry there.....

Children As Validation?

Growing up,  we can be led to believe we need to complete certain life expectations.

If we are single, we need to find partner.

Once found, we need to marry them.

Once married, we need to have children.

Society Please...

Deciding and voicing when you need help can be very hard for someone to do. Making the choice to apply for a form of government assistance can weigh very heavily on a person’s mind. When applying, it should not be an open invitation of members of society to belittle or scrutinize them.  Each person who receives help has a story of their own yet so many members of society group these people together as “lazy” or “freeloaders”.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day.....

To the single moms who are doing their best with or without the father's help,
To the foster moms who opened their heart and their home,
To the stepmoms who are raising his children as her own,
To the working moms who wonder each day if they are spending enough time with their children,
To the stay-at-home moms whose role in the family may go unnoticed,
To all the mothers I may have forgotten to mention, I wish you a Happy Mother's Day!

My daughter picked out a two pictures for me to hang on my wall.
