      Well today I took a big step.20120627-194557.jpg I accepted my boss' offer to go intoo being a shift leader at work. She has been after me for a year to do this. But I always said no. Today she offered again. I told her I was afraid of letting her down. 2 of the last people she promoted quit with no notice. She told me she believed I would be a good shift leader and that the store owner wanted me too be one too. I thought about it and decided I would treat this the same way I did when deciding to separate from my ex.. I just closed my eyes, took a deep breath and said yes. I want to help her out and hate how some people have treated her. She does so much for me and is concerned not…

      I got20140420-010128.jpg my sons graduation package today. It's all happening way to fast. I want it to stop. I'm scared. I want Davey to go to college and learn independence. But I'm scared that he won't be able to succeed. He has always had his teachers to help him understand things if he had trouble. College professors won't do that. I don't want him to fail. I feel my world is spinning to fast. I'm torn in so many different directions. I don't know whether I'm coming or going sometimes. Ive got so much on my mind, my neck and shoulder muscles stay knotted up. I have started keeping my worries and concerns to myself, because I dont want people to pity me, nor do I want them to think I'm a hypochondriac. I know some think my health issues are all in my…

      They say20130705-001644.jpg things come in threes. I hope that's true. In the last week 1-my stepmom was diagnosed with cancer, 2-my son had a biopsy of a mole and 3- my aunt fell and broke her hip. Two of the three are hundreds of miles away and I have to send my love and support thru the phone or Internet. I lost my dad several yars ago to cancer. He was diagnosed in December and passed in July. Cancer scares me. I have been lucky though. Besides one aunt dealing with breast cancer and a few benign moles, there hasn't been major worries of a cancer along the blood line. But now with davey, it is really scaring me. I know it's probably nothing. Even the doctor said she didn't think it was anything to be concerned about. But you can't tell that…

      Love is a word20140107-003136.jpg that gets thrown around way to much.  Many young people say they love someone and change every week who it is they love. They don't realize that love is something that starts like a tiny flicker and grows into a raging fire before settling into a warm glow. They think it's all roaring fire forever more. But just like a fire, it takes fuel. You have to work at keeping the fire going. It's the little things that keep my home fires burning. Remembering the little things I say. I mentioned I liked the willow tree figures one time and he remembered and bought me one Months later. He puts thought into his gifts for my family. Not just a random gas station gift. He develops a relationship with my family. He takes care of me.
