"Here I Stand; Pride & Determination Keeps Me Going"



Patiently Waiting…

What do you do when you really like someone, but you haven’t quite shared that with him? What do you do when you have been communicating for 8 years and have not even met?  What do you do, when you get “spacey”, because you get a little nervous to talk to him?  “Why am I a Simple Silly Mess?

 What initially drew me to him, was his poetry.  His poetry is simply amazing, intriguing, grasping, thought provoking, imaginative, and riveting.  I  thoroughly  enjoy and look forward to reading them.  We understand each other, and can relate on a level that’s hard to explain.  I find him to be intellectual, educated, and knowledgeable.  He seems to be honest, respectful, caring and compassionate. Wow a “Southern Gentleman” for a change. He also has a great sense of humor, which sometimes he gets me going.  OMG.

We  talk for hours on the phone.  Guess what,AND, I am so not a phone person, at all.  You are lucky if you can even talk to me for 5 minutes!!  The conversations with him are always wonderful.  After talking to him, it makes me smile.  Wow, I’m sharing my “Unspoken Secret”

“I know I want to meet him, but I know I will probably be a basket case from the time we arrange a date to the date itself.”   “Oh No, Now, what do I do?” He’s doing something to me, making me nuts!!!! In a great way. Wow.


P.S.  I must say he is also, “A Handsome Southern Gentelman”

My past caught up…

I knew this would eventually happen.  My parents said “Wait until you have kids”, “Keep it up, you will have kids just like you”, but of course we never believed it. We thought their advice was “blah, blah, blah” and we were always right.  We knew everything and couldn’t wait to grow up and be out on our own.

Then it happened.

OMG, what did I do???!!!

We now have children. My dear, it surely is a major wake up call.  How could this happen to us? Why did our parents wish that upon us!” OMG, they are just like me when I was younger. They have my ways, but what tops this all off is that I sound like my parents.  I tell my children “Wait until you have kids…..” “I remember when I was younger I walked up hill both ways in the snow to go to school”, “Why in the world did you do that, and don’t give me the answer ‘I don’t know’.

Wow, my past surely caught up to me!!!!!!

As always,
