With Change Comes Happiness

Another birthday come and gone, and this one was one I will remember.  This past year has had it’s ups and downs, but it has been, by far, the best one I’ve had in ages.  I celebrated my birthday three times this year.  The first was a family afair, which took place on Thanksgiving day…

Short and Sweet

What I thought was nothing has turned into something very special.  I’ve discovered a man I completely misunderstood.  We parted because we couldn’t find each other, but the distance gave us time to figure it out.  The thought of losing one another was what we needed to communicate.  He isn’t at all what I had…

A Treasured Gift

One must be kind to a gentle heart; For it feels more than it’s counterpart. Nothing compares to it’s undying love; The sweetest kiss; pure as a dove. So please beware and understand; It can shatter when placed in careless hands. And if the broken heart never mends; The love it shared comes to an…

Good-Bye Is Never Easy

Letting go has always been hard for me.  I usually know for some time that it’s time to move on, yet I hold on waiting to see if I’m wrong.  I don’t know why I haven’t learned to listen to my gutt.  It’s always the same; in the end, I wonder why I didn’t do…

Rambling On

What’s better than listening to “The Authority Song” by Mr. Mellencamp at the tail end of your work week?  NOTHING.  Foot tapping, head bopping, and fingers racing across the keyboard to the beat of the music.  Oh how I love me a Friday afternoon.  Especially when I’ve got after work drinks planned with my favorite…

On a Love Train – Destination Unknown

  Tomorrow marks the one month meeting of the new man in my life.  I’ve yet to talk about him; mainly because I’m not sure where I’m at or how I feel about him.   This has been an unusual year for me love wise.  Not that I’ve found love, but I was getting pretty…

An Unexpected Turn Of Events

When it comes to matters of the heart, there are no rules.  However, as we age, starting new relationships become more and more difficult. We come with baggage; we’ve been hurt, and we are scared of letting ourselves love again.   To be perfectly honest, I didn’t think I’d ever love again after leaving a…

Like a Record Baby

There has been very little writing happening from me lately, and not from a lack of trying.  Daily, I sit staring at the blank screen willing words to appear.  Some days, I write a couple of paragraphs, but hate what I’ve written and trash the post.  Other days, the blank screen stares back at me…

Change

  Something happens to a person’s ability to think when they are in the throws of lust.  I, for one, experience concentration disturbances, and obsessive thoughts of the person I’m in lust with.  A new relationship is filled with excitement, anxiety, and most of all sleep deprivation.  It’s a miracle I’ve been able to do…

Let Me Tell You A Story…

When I was a little girl, I dreamt of falling in love.  The fairytale kind filled with romance and butterflies.  At the age of 21, I was married to a nice man, but not the right man.  After the marriage ended, I had a string of terrible relationships that left me hurt and guarded.  My…

Life’s Highway

With the smell of love in the air, my world has shifted once again, and I’m struggling to keep myself on stable ground. First of all “love” is an over-statement.  I’ve spent two weekends with a man who, so far, seems decent.  He drives truck Mon – Fri, so we hang out on weekends only….

Let Go. Just Be.

It’s 7:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning.   Like most weekend mornings, I’m sitting at my dining room table with my oatmeal and almond milk latte.  I’ve got a blanket wrapped around me, as I’m waiting for the house to warm up.  I turn the heat down at night because I get night sweats.  Across…
