“All alone I didn’t like the feeling. All alone I sat and cried. All alone I had to find some meaning in the center of the pain I felt inside. … I will see you in the light of a thousand suns. I will hear you in the sound of the waves. I will know you when I come as we all will come through the doors beyond the grave.” SAND AND WATER; Beth Nielsen Chapman

I miss you, baby boy, my #2 son, and, as all 3 of my amazing children are, one of my best friends and greatest treasures. I am simply *honored* to be considered your mother. You all taught me how to truly live. I will know you all when we meet beyond the grave.

*~*~*

Keegan, we will forever and always miss your million dollar smile, your wacked-out sense of humor, and your big heart.

This is why so many of us can enjoy the lives we do. Roy and I understand this. We only wish BO, his spoiled wifey (Moochelle) and even more spoiled children as well as the current gang of thugs did. Otherwise … we shudder to think what this world would be like.

Thank you, Freedom Fighters. Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.

Roy and I will carry the torch. Roy and I will not let it fizzle out. Roy and I will not let your lives to have been sacrificed in vain.

Memorial Day is *not* “National Barbeque Day”. Do not ever treat what has been done for us lightly.

People have always been amazed that both Roy & I will speak the truth, even when it’s unpopular. They ask how we do it, what our inspiration is, and if we’re afraid when we speak our minds. Our answer is that it takes an iron will and 3 things:

1. Backbone

2. Backbone

3. BACKBONE

Yes. Sometimes it can be scary as *hell*. Sometimes we have no idea how things will end up. We may quake in our proverbial boots. Our voices may shake when we speak out. However, if we’re right, well, then, WE ARE RIGHT and we’re not going to let the wrong-minded sway us into believing lies.

It’s part of “Basic Success Principles 101.”

Yes.

Yes, we were targeted.

There’s nothing more to add.

As life improves for Roy & I after our last many years of living through upheaval and, forgive me but it’s true … UNMITIGATED HELL … this is something we always took to heart. It continues to be true. Never ever *ever* forget this.

NEVER

NOT EVER

I have nothing more to add. This pretty much says it all.

My kids learned this young.  They learned that, while our house was a “democracy”, they each had one vote and, since there were 3 kids, I had 4 votes, so they could either vote along with me or be voted out of power.

Roy came along later in their lives and learned the rules of the house upfront.  The kids also learned that he had as much a vote in things as I did and that we worked as a team, so they couldn’t try to play one of us against the other.

*~*~*

“Well, MOM said I could go to the party.”

Fine … go get your mom and have her tell both you and me together that you can go.

“Oh … hmmm …”

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

*~*~*

“But ROY said it was ok.”

Great … Roy and you can come in here together and tell me that.

“Oh … wait …”

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

*~*~*

We work well as a team.

Nevertheless, he also knows this … I am always right … and even if I’m not right … I’ll argue like I am … and I’ll win no matter what … and if I’m not right, then it is someone else’s fault.

It works well.

I like it.

I hope you know this is our light-hearted joking (somewhat … LOL) sarcasm here.

 Happy Mother’s Day to me!

prepare not protect

 

The goal of any parent should be to prepare their children for what lies ahead for them in life.  If they merely protect them, the “child” will not know what to do when life’s trials and tribulations hit.

Prepare and protect.

It’s that simple.

That’s how you can show true love as a parent for your child.

Prepare them for the future.

That’s my pre-Mother’s Day advice for you.
