Life sure does throw a few doesn’t it? Believe me, I have caught my fair share, some I have even taken square in the face. Nevertheless, I just keep trucking along. What else can you do? None of us have time for the much needed nervous breakdown we all deserve, at least I don’t.

My life revolves around two extremely important beings…my kids. They are the sole reason I am even able to function at this point. I know no life without them, and I strive every moment of every day to give them what I feel they deserve.

Unfortunately, life just does not always cooperate. By this stage of the game, I would have preferred to have us in a somewhat decent size home…nothing extravagant, just something where we wouldn’t be tripping over each other. I’d like to give them stability, and security, and believe me I try. It seems the only thing I am able to give them consistently, without any interruption, is my love. I just hope one day that will be enough for them.

As I take a swing at yet another curveball ejected in my direction, I pause. Things may not be ideal at this time, but I know they could be worse. So while I constantly strive to better our life, I do not take for granted the blessings that I do have.

My children are incredibly talented, they are kind and good-hearted, intelligent, healthy, and for the most part they are happy. I could not have asked for better children, and I will forever be proud they are mine!

I am thankful for the true friends and family I have. It is nice to know there is always someone nearby to lean on if need be.

Now lastly, but certainly not least in anyway, my boyfriend. He may quite possibly be the most complicated man ever (not that I have much room to talk hahaa) but he has the most amazing heart, and he truly cares for me and my kids. So even though we can relentlessly aggravate the shit out of each other, and I’m sure at times have wanted to simultaneously strangle each other…well, there is no one else I’d rather have the urge to strangle. 😉

In all seriousness, life is one big ball game. We battle through the innings, we try to get on base, and all just so we can get home.

So thank you, to all the amazing people I have in my dugout. It’s been an interesting game thus far, but hold on tight, I just may have a few curveballs of my own coming! 🙂

Greetings! I guess you're here to find out who I am...looks like we're in the same boat. I have been writing poetry since I was 16, not because I thought it was a "cool thing to do", but because if I didn't my head would have exploded. With a multitude of words billowing through my brain, I had no other choice but to let them out. Some have been funny, many have been sad, but mostly, they've been guideposts. Unfortunately, I do not write as much as I would like to, but I hope to rectify that. Aside from poetry, I dabble in novel-writing. I have many ideas jotted down, some of them I've started, and maybe one day I will actually get one finished (if I just didn't have to worry about working, paying bills, and simple basic survival). I spend a lot of my time supporting my kids dreams. My daughter is a musician, and my son is an athlete, so between music gigs and school sporting events, my time is pretty much consumed...but I love every single moment of it!! I am also passionate about environmental issues; always looking for ways to lend a hand. Currently, I have an Etsy shop where I sell crocheted items that I have personally made. A portion of the proceeds are going to be donated to two of my favorite charities; Mission Blue and Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. You can learn more at Other than that, I love to travel! I hope to see as much of the world as possible. There is so much more out there than just where we are, and I feel it is a gift that we should not take for granted. Once upon a time I was a runner (though some may have called it jogging with enthusiasm), but my Achilles decided it didn't like that anymore so now we walk. I'm beginning to venture into yoga, which so far has been a pleasant experience, and if time will permit, I would like to start doing some hiking. I also love music and going to concerts, coffee is my best friend, and over thinking is my worst enemy. So that's pretty much me in a nutshell. Nothing too fancy or exciting, just a 40-something still trying to figure it all out. I hope you enjoy my ramblings. g. P. S. Remember, "Agree to disagree, for not one person is ever truly right."
