The woman that I must admire in life, is the same woman to taught me how to be me. She is the one who to taught me how to love, who let me know that it is okay to cry, and who gave me values to cherish. This woman who is no longer among the living is still alive in me, she is very much a part of me, she was and still is… my Mama.
I was dating this guy and he was acting all kinds of shady, which was not like him. He had my state ID one day and I forgot to get it from him before he left or to ask him about where it was and he had just left . I was with my mom and so my mom drove to where he was going so that I could get it back. Later he called me and asked what was I doing around 1 am because he wanted to drive somewhere and talk. We drove out to Walmart after he got off work I guess so I wouldn't make a scene like a crazy person when he insulted my mom. Well, he asked me why my mom was following him like a crazy person. That pissed me off .He was mad because my mom drove where he was and he felt like she was following him so I asked him if he was doing something that he needed to be followed for and he said no .I was like why you gonna call her names when all she was doing was trying to get your attention so I can get my state ID? Which she did try to get his attention at that point Did she not trust him? No and she had never had a problem with him before so this was a first time kind of thing. I left and didn't want to talk to him because I was already not trusting him by the end of that night. My mom made jokes about following him saying if she was following him he wouldn't know it. And he wouldn't have.
I was at work today and a lady and her husband came in for lunch. It was their fifty-nieth wedding anniversary and they do not live by a Fazoils, so when her husband asked her where she wanted to go she was thrilled to drive the forty-five minutes to come get our breadsticks.
If you are a fan of Mindy McCready, you have probably heard her song, "Maybe He'll Notice Her Now." I have long liked this song, as well as Mindy herself as a singer. She had an amazing talent, and her songs always touch the hearts of her fans.
No one wants to have toxic people in their lives taking their joy away or making them unhappy. But what do you do if the very people making you unhappy and plain miserable are the ones that share your blood? How do you walk away from your family? What do you do if they keep bringing you down?
DO NOT lie to the kids—if you have kids do not lie to them about what is happening to their family, why you and your spouse are choosing to get a divorce, or what is going to happen next. Kids are already going through the pain of divorce and one parent moving out of the house. Do not lie to them, even if you think it will make them feel better. It will assuredly make them feel worse. And may even make them feel that it is their fault, and that is why you are lying to them about it. And also they come to resent you for your actions.
