Still numb

I told him I was going to bring a dry erase marker to draw on his board in his hospital room today.

And now I can't.

The things that go through your mind after someone dies are so random and weird.


I knew as soon as Daddy walked into my classroom this morning that he was gone.

My PawPaw passed away this morning.

I am glad I went to see him yesterday.

I'm glad Janie was with me.

I feel kinda numb.

It's weird.

5 Years

“I swear I couldn’t love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.” – Les Christopher

Love isn’t perfect. It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook and it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second of it was worth it because you did it together.

Once upon a time, I became yours and you became mine. And we’ll stay together through both the tears and the laughter... Because that’s what they call happily ever after.

On our anniversary, I want you to know how much I’ve enjoyed annoying you all this time and how excited I am to keep doing so in the future. J

I feel like everything in my life has led me to you. My choices, my heartbreaks, my regrets. Everything. And when we’re together, my past seems worth it. Because if I had done one thing differently, I might never have met you.

Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of the things they have longed for: companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc. The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.

A perfect marriage is just two people who refuse to give up on each other.

I’d rather have bad times with you than good times with someone else. I’d rather be beside you in a storm than safe and warm by myself. I’d rather have hard times together, than to have it easy apart. I’d rather have the one who holds my heart.

You’re my compass when I’m lost. – Eric Church


A good marriage is like a casserole: only those responsible for it really knows what goes in it. 


When I first heard of Trump running for president, I took it about as seriously as Kanye West running. Then I found out that he was actually running. At this point I thought this was a joke and he would never win. Then I found out that Hillary was his main opponent and all I could think was SERIOUSLY?!?  Not her. She is way too deep into shady politics. We have to have Trump. Then the more I started to like Trump’s ideas and plans to make America great again, the more I was told I didn’t care about my gay friends or that I was racist, or that I was stupid as a woman to vote for him because of the things he has said about women and that he was now being accused of sexual assault (kinda find it interesting that he wasn’t accused until after he decided to run for POTUS, but I digress...). All of this made me hide in the shadows. I have always been a Republican. I firmly stand with the GOP but that does not mean that I discredit my family or friends whom voted differently.

We need this. We need this man to come in on his high horse where no one can look him face to face and intimidate him. We need this man to push and take back what is ours, our country. Help our homeless. Employ our jobless. Take care of our veterans. Fix our economy. He wants us to live up to our full potential of life and I hope and pray that every one of you do too. We are all his people. You heard those words from his mouth.

Welcome #donaldtrump as our #45president #makeamericagreatagain!
