    Our World Is Crying For Change

    Our world is hurting, lives are being lost

    Innocence and virtue are paying the ultimate cost

    Everyone is fighting, the tactics are all the same

    No one accepts their part, everyone else is to blame

    Our children will suffer, what will be the price

    Of an ever evolving world, addicted to money, greed, and vice

    Politicians are pointing fingers, people are turning up dead

    You can lose your life for how you think, pray, and for things you have said

    Will no one stand up for our world as it weeps

    From the fear inside, all the secrets it keeps

    Our world is scared of the violence, the faces of anger are strange

    It is desperately crying, pleading for change.

    The Journey to a Better Me

    Good morning all. As I am sitting here recovery from surgery I thought I would share some thoughts with you.

    The road of life is filled with ups, downs, and about a million curves. We all traverse the obstacles along the way in our own unique manner. I have watched many both glide through, as well as crash into these obstacles. This always leaves me wondering about the path my life has taken and what the future may hold. I have followed everyone else’s dreams for me. I have been led and told which way to go. I have followed my own dreams and they have led me to what I am currently doing. I have a wonderful life, get to write every day, and watch my children work towards their own happily ever after. This last path is the road for me.

    I want to encourage you all to follow your dreams. Make your own path. Live for the love of living. Only by believing in yourself and listening to your heart can true happiness be achieved. Our dreams change along this path of life, but that is what makes it so great. We can have more than one dream, and realize them all. Follow you and believe in yourself.

    I hope you all have a wonderful week and that you find inspiration in everything you see.

    When Mom Gets Sick

    Today I have decided to touch on the subject of moms getting sick. As a mother of six, I know all to well the challenges of keeping them all healthy. The daily struggle of keeping them well and making sure they have what they need. After all, that is mom’s job. But what happens when mom is the one that is sick?

    This is a topic that doesn’t get discussed often. Moms don’t get sick, do they? Let me tell you we do. While most times we suffer through and go about life as usual, there are some times that just doesn’t work. As I prepare to have my fourth surgery, I see the true effects of mom being sick. Not only does it take its toll on all involved for obvious reasons. It also takes an emotional toll on mom. Not only does she have to worry about what ever ailment she is dealing with, she also deals with guilt felt for slacking on her daily duties, sadness for time she is missing with her children, anxiety about things getting done, and even depression as a result of the afore mentioned.

    Though none of this can be controlled, as a mother it is our natural instinct to try. We push ourselves making sure everything is ready. We make contingency plans for our contingency plans. Then we start again, in an effort to make sure everyone is taken care of while we are incapable of carrying out our duties.

    Well, I just want to say to all of the mothers out there (and fathers, grandparents, and any other role you may have), it is okay to take care of you. Take time to make sure you are good, so you can continue to work your daily miracles for years to come. Your family will be okay. Let yourself heal and worry about the rest later. Your family needs you to be okay, to make them okay.

    I wish all of you health and happiness always. Take care and remember to look for inspiration in every day and inspire someone else.
