Endorsement Anger?

So Nike does an ad with Kaepernick and the country seems to have gone insane. People are burning their Nike products (cause what is more sensible than burning things you spent damn good money on, right) … Well, now this Louisiana mayor has decided to ban Nike products from the city recreation facilities. He put out a memo stating, “Under no circumstances will any … Read More Endorsement Anger?

Respect and Responsibility

I’ve rewritten this post a few times now… hard to decide where to start, so I’m going to try this one more time. Every one is different. We each look different, think different, like different things. This is okay. What I find disturbing is that every day I find people disrespecting one another based on our differences, whether that is skin color, religion, political … Read More Respect and Responsibility

Turning 46

I’ve not been big on celebrating my birthday in quite some time, so this year was no different. My husband is on the road for work and the house has been quieter, not that he necessarily is noisy 😉 Anyhow, as time creeps up on us as it does me I had a lot of things on my mind this birthday (June 11). I … Read More Turning 46

When are we done?

A while back I heard a conversation where one parent told another they didn’t need to give their child advice anymore because that child was now an adult. I thought about this for quite sometime and mulled it over and over in my head. Here are my thoughts: The only time we are done doing anything for our children is (1) they no longer … Read More When are we done?

What is in a name?

A name is given to everything. Trees, Insects, Things, People. Literally everything. We name our children, pets, and even our automobiles. So when the prompt for week 6 in #52Ancestors came up as Favorite Name, I was stuck. Over the last few days, I have diligently to update my ancestry records online from documents I received after my mother’s death in 2004. I have … Read More What is in a name?

An invitation to dinner

An invitation to dinner is week fours writing prompt from #52Ancestors! To imagine having any one of my ancestors, family members known or unknown to dinner is just exciting. But how does one narrow down that invitation to just one when your ancestors date back past the 1400s. That’s a lot people to choose from. Would I want the person I was closest to? … Read More An invitation to dinner

Longevity

This weeks #52Ancestors prompt is about longevity… the oldest relative you had or something along that lines. While, I know I am a day or so behind I’ve had this topic on my mind trying to determine who’d I consider. I thought of all the ones who have passed on and their lives. The ones who died young. The ones who died after a … Read More Longevity

Favorite Photo

Week 2 prompt for #52ancestors is a favorite photo. I thought long and hard about what I thought my favorite family photo was. This was a true inner struggle.  I first considered photos of my grandparents (either side), (below is Vera and Cecil Dyess together, Vera Dyess ) (I couldn’t locate photos of my maternal grandparents to share in time of this post)     … Read More Favorite Photo

Genealogy and Words

Over the last few years, I have slowly begun to dive into the genealogy of my family. Years ago, my mother worked an endless number of hours gathering data, researching documents, and joining organizations to learn more about our history. Not just hers or mine but that of our family! I’m blessed to have all her research even if much of it is only … Read More Genealogy and Words

What they expect

I bet you read that title and was thinking “What in the world is she even saying?”  🙂 It’s okay, that is the exact sort of confusion I wanted to convey?  Ok, who is they and why do they expect anything? Here is a short poem I wrote as a teen to get us started… Everyone loves my hair, Loves my eyes, Loves my … Read More What they expect
