I Think Kids Say the Darndest Things
When my nephew was in kindergarten, I met up with him one morning as he was going out the door. I held the screen door to let him out, and as he stepped on the porch, I smiled and said, "Have a good day, and you ACT like somebody!" It was...

I Don't Need Drugs and Alcohol to Have Fun
I can safely say the title of this post says it all. I grew up with alcoholism. For twenty years, it was slurred and hateful words, thrown plates (both empty and filled), bruises and black eyes...scared kids, hangovers that could kill a horse, yelli...

I Am Unique - Just Like Everyone Else
Everybody is different. Even the members in your own family. My sister was petite and pretty. She had brown hair and eyes, like Mom and me, but there the resemblance ended. She was marred at 18, and had her first child at 19 - the same as Mom AND Gr...

I Appreciate the Simple Things In Life
"They're replacing the flooring on the first floor." That was the answer I got yesterday when I stopped one of the men who come by to make changes or repairs. More power to them - but for four days now, beginning midweek, they sounded...

I Love to Write
Capricorn in Aquarius - Part Two When he had secured my promise, Daddy released my hands, stood up abruptly, and strode to the window. He put his hands in his own pockets, sighed sharply and looked around at me. I didn't move. I knew from the ...

I Love to Write
Capricorn in Aquarius - Part Two Daddy continued to hold down my hands as he drew a deep breath and went on with what he had to say. "I don't want you in that area - ever again. I will continue to pick you up after school, every day, and d...

I Loved You Then, I Love You Now And I Will Love You Always
I miss you, Bobby. I loved you when we were both little kids, and you loved me. I love you now. I remember our passion in first and second grade. Oh, those long kisses. The tight holds of our hands. And those hugs. Oh, yes, those HUGS. Usually, the ...

I've Made Mistakes In Life
...but I don't think I made one today in what I did, and I don't regret it and I'm neither going to own up to it or apologize for it. I live in the basement of a four-flat (including mine) apartment building. We share the use of the u...

I Cherish True Friendships
"Who is that?" "What do you talk to him (or her) for?" I hear this and other comments - mostly, not nice - on the people I talk to on SW. Everybody doesn't get along with everybody else. That's what makes the world diff...

I Won't Judge You
I love Similar Words. I have met/made many friends. Every one is entitled to his or her own opinion -and more power to them, too. But why do we judge everybody by the way we express our thoughts? If you don't agree with me on certain things, s...

Capricorn in Aquarius - Part Two It took twenty-five minutes longer than usual before we sloshed up in front of my house. Our sidewalk was clean and heavily salted, thank God. The policemen let me out and saw me to the front door before pulling away...

I Love Exploring Museums
When I was a little kid (and things were much cheaper than they are now) we had a lot of field trips. Mostly, they were to famous buildings or museums, where we brown-bagged a lunch of some kind and bought a small carton of white or chocolate milk in...

I Admire My Mother
I loved my mother. She was pretty. She was sweet. She was my world in many, many ways. She was a terrific cook. I worked in the kitchen often with her, but I could never match her skills. She often had leftovers, but she was able to figure out anot...

The phone rang last night at 7:00 PM. It was my youngest brother's number calling, so I answered. I was shocked at what he told me. "I'm just calling to tell you that Marie and Dennis' house caught fire and burned to the ground....
