Being Known

I like what Ronnie and Mandi have done with Thursdays... it gives me no excuse not to sit back and be grateful...Thanks guys...

I am grateful for words... they are oftentimes my only vehicle out of me-- my facial expressions tend to me, "Hey yeah, things are fantastic!!" .. but when the house quiets and the little boy sleeps and the dog submits to a turquoise pillow on a cozy chair across the room, I talk.

I've always been the phoenix... rising up from that proverbial ash...the survivor... the surpasser... the "life can hand her anything and she will take it and run" kind of girl...  but honestly, sometimes it's too hard to carry it, so I talk.


I turn to N and she sees it... and she doesn't say anything, but she looks at me-- she lets the silence beat past until I start talking... and she listens..  and sometimes she tries to fix it... sometimes she doesn't... she doesn't need to, but she loves me.


I am thankful for for N... for her truly unconditional love and support, for her honesty and boy is she honest. I am grateful for the little 5 year old boy with his new haircut that makes him look like an 8 year old boy, but I swear he's still 5!!


 I am grateful for my mother... who I can call one of my best friends... after years of trials---we've come out on top. I'm grateful for Tom... the only father I have known...whose intelligence and heart continue to warm us, (my trio) who he loves so dearly...


I'm grateful for E-- by beautiful sister who can laugh hard and mean it... after life had given her some tough stuff...


I'm grateful for K and N and little baby (he's almost 2) O.... I mean cute.. baby O is off the charts and his life is full of the things that mean something... raising chickens to provide eggs, working with his daddy, singing with his mommy...


I'm grateful to Mami L and Papi C... they have souls and hearts that I swear to you god put there himself...


and I'm grateful for Bella... my 8 month old Yorkie that keeps me going... and going and going and going...




I have people... close people.. people that recognize the tones of my voice and the pentameter of my speech...

It's amazing to be known.
