Listen to my Heart

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

When my husband read this the other day he asked me if we were having problems when I wrote it. I am sooo glad I was able to say I don’t remember. We have been through tough times in our marriage just like everyone else. The best advice I can give you is try your best to work it out. Things tend to smooth themselves out with a little time. Although I have to agree with Dr. Laura on the radio, you need to leave if any of the three A’s occur—Adultery, Abuse or Addiction!

The Heart of a Mother

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

As so many mothers are forced to do, I ended up feeling like a single mother a lot of times. Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful I have been blessed with the wonderful husband I have. He just worked so hard to provide for us and it felt like he was never around. This was around 1996 when our 2 daughters were 3 and 5. I had a job and was in school but somehow most of the household responsibilities, even paying the bills fell on me. Anyhoo, that’s where this poem came from, many moons ago.
