My Forever Little Girl

For Haley Bug

Looking at you
I see pieces of me
Strong of will
Self reliant
Beautiful and Caring
Determined to survive
Able to Achevie
All the Dreams
Of your Heart

I look at you
Seeking to be
The Accomplished young woman
You are so fast becoming
And I am proud
To call you my
Stay true to who you are.
Love Mom

In You

In the picture posted below: is a dear friend who passed away a few years ago to lung cancer. That picture is the last picture we ever took together -- It was on the 4th of July at Ocean Springs Beach -- Michael James was an exceptional man with great morals and values.  He is missed everyday by not just me but by those whom he barely knew-- he had a way of touching people with a smile or a nod, his way of letting them know they mattered even if he knew them not.... He opened his heart and his home to many, and was a lover of animals.... the year MJ passed away -- he was held at gun point by a young man and robbed -- this man spared MJ's life -- all the while his life was in danger Michael talked with calm ease to this young man and witnessed to him.... what a hero -- is this why GOD spared him on that day.... Although CANCER finally took his life ... it never took his spirit.. his famous word were always this "LOVIN LIFE,LIVIN THE DREAM"...... on any given day he would tell you this no matter his pain... he was an inspiration to many... The day he called me and said I need a babysitter and laughed -- I knew it was time.... for more than a month I did just that sit and listen and care for him and in an odd turn of events for once in our friendship I was the confidence booster, shoulder to lean on, care taker -- he had to let me be the strong person (he was such a man) -- He said his goodbyes very matter of fact like and in the end maintained his dignity... I said good bye on a Wednesday night -- with a kiss because he came to asking for sugar -- who knew -- and my friend and I lay our heads on his hands and he drifted back to sleep..... never to wake again.... On this day he is much on my mind and somewhere I know he is smiling and happy for I know he is in heaven......

In You

While you have been my priority……
I have been just your option ……..

On any given day/night I am here
Thinking of you
Wondering if you will call
Perhaps come by..

On any given day/night you are out
With the guys
Living it up thinking of just you
Never stopping to think
Of me Alone
At home (loving you)…..

So today - I am saying
I have an option too
I want to be a priority
I deserve to be at the top
Of things on your list to do

I am not an option
I am not a convenience
I am a strong loving woman
Who wants and needs
To be loved in return

Not just an option
You can randomly drop
In on from time to time

Words can hurt
Or lend relevance to
Any given situation

Am I just an option
On any given night
To you or am I more

Time to make a choice
Choose your words with care
Remember your actions
Will tell on you…
