Time cannot dissolve the pain
The scars stay fixed and fibrous
Remodeled bone creaks again
Fear hangs in the air, forever timeless
Nothing can heal those wounds
You’re broken, no longer whole
Evermore changing, reckless moods
An empty receptacle of a beaten soul

There is no greater love, no greater purpose than being a parent. Whether you actually conceive and give birth to a child, adopt, or otherwise find yourself being a parent, there is nothing more challenging or rewarding.
I miss when my babes were small enough to hold in my arms. When giving them a bath, smelling their hair, tickling their toes, and blowing raspberries on their tummies was a daily occurrence.
But when I see my daughter as the young woman who gives joy, helps people, and spreads kindness, I cannot stop myself from feeling proud. I helped make her the way she is.
Yes, my mother taught me well. People around me gave me clues. I read books and watched other parents. I made decisions based on all of this to mold my young lady into someone who can be a change agent. She has faced difficulties. She works hard. She nurtures relationships.
My darling, as you face the next big steps in your life like learning to drive and choosing a college/career, know that you will always be loved. You are my rock and my pillow. You are my guide and my follower. You are my child and my parent. YOU are my WORLD!
Each weekend, I prep 4-5 bowls of fresh cut veggies for the week’s lunch. Since I was sick this week, I ate a lot of soup. Which left me with the veggies.
My kid had friends over during the day and made rice and beans.
Not wanting the veggies to spoil, I tossed them in a sauce pan with about a half cup of tomato sauce and heated until the broccoli changed color, a more vibrant green, and the tomatoes nearly disappeared into the sauce. I tossed in about a half a cup of rice and bean and heated thoroughly. A sprinkle of sharp cheddar on the top and voila! Dinner.
