No kids to worry about.  No reason to set my alarm.  No reason to go to bed at a reasonable hour.  Just pure unadulterated freedom!  And it couldn’t have come sooner.  For the past few months, I have been utterly useless.  As soon as I got home all I wanted to do was veg out and go to bed.

After I give myself a little vacation, it’s back to work for me.  I’m woefully behind in my writing but I plan to use my vacation making up for what I was too tired to do during the school year.  Hopefully, I’ll be back on track by the time it’s time to go back to school.  ‘Til next time folks!

Happy Father’s Day

A big thank you to all the daddies out there today.  Thank you to the father who cannot be with his family because he’s fighting over seas.  Thank you to the man who chose to be a father to a child that is not his own.  Thank you to the fathers who are doing it all on their own.  And a thank you to the fathers who are gone but not forgotten.  To those men, this poem is for you.

 

For as long as I could remember
you were there
from moving to new schools
you were there
Scraped knees and broken dreams
you were there
From elementary to middle
you were there
From high school to college
you were there
Prom and graduation
boyfriends and broken hearts
you were there

You were there for
every major events in my life
but no more
you will not be here
when I get my degree
or when I begin my career
You won’t be here for
when I find the love of my life
or when I start my family.

Though you won’t be here
for when I’m grown
you were there in my childhood
All the lessons you taught me
and all the times we fought
have helped me to become
who I am today
and though you aren’t here anymore
you shall live in my heart
and all that you taught me
I shall teach to my children
you shall live on in me and in them.
