Our five bedroom home shelters myself, my husband, my daughter, my son in law, and my three grandchildren ages 16,14, and 3. Prior to covid, on any given day, you could add an extra five to fifteen teenagers, (sometimes more!) plus five to ten friends with their children who are visiting my daughter and her husband, at times a friend or two who are visiting me and my husband, oh and my other daughter and my son, their children and their significant others must be added to the total as well! Needless to say our home is active, full of laughter, love and chaos!
Dear Donald, I wrote you a letter, which I posted in an open forum. In this letter I express all the things I felt you had not received recognition for and I thanked you for all you did, only to find myself discouraged, as I realize I need to be much more selective when I post! Why? Well I am about to tell you why.
I don't get it! How can it be? What the hell is wrong with me? I worked on that "Challenge" everyday! And long through the night.
Hello self! If your reading this, you have made it through the year 2020. Give yourself a big high five! Not an easy thing to do, you faced many challenges and managed to remain spiritually intact and emotionally whole. So let's be gentle as you set your intentions for the year 2021.
When I thought about the music that got me through this crazy and surreal year 2020,I had to smile and even chuckle some. In my mind's eye I saw my 3-year-old grandson singing and dancing to PinkFong's "Baby Shark Tooth", Drakes "The Tootsie Slide", anything by Drake for that matter!, Brelands "Don't Touch my Truck", both Keshawns and Ricky Desktops version of "Chicken Wing", and Blanco Browns the "Git Up" to name his favorites!
As a child she spent many hours viewing the world thru the backseat window of her parents car. In her 6-year old's mind she processes the conversations of adults and all the worlds problems she hears on nightly news casts. She cuts through any red tape, with her child like resilience, non judge-mental, un-inhibited thoughts formed from the most pure and honest viewpoint in our existence she contemplates the objectives of each of her concerns and she finds simple solutions formed within her child-logic perimeters.
I address you as MR. President because you deserve the respect of being called so. I have been embarrassed and disenchanted with the lack of respect the American media, politicians, and many of my fellow American's have presented since you took office. Never in my memory have I ever been witness to the President of the United States of America continually being addressed or referred to by his given name "Trump", "MR. Trump", "Donald" as you have. It's insulting and passive aggressive behavior to minimize and humiliate you. Since day one I have been witness to continual mocking, slandering and skewing of every move you made so to discredit your achievements while in office and I apologize for this. I find it ironic that after the 2020 election suddenly your referenced as MR. President in all most every media venue or post I see or hear.
It's a sad but true quirk of humanity, that a persons perception is their reality. It twists and tears and tangles and binds,
