There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

Monday, June 18


I have been in a real slump lately. Spent quite a few months tying myself in knots over something and someone that I so wanted to make happy. But ended up I wasn't making him happy. And I was becoming a nag about things. So I decided to pull away for a while. And it breaks my heart. Yea and Father's Day? Don't get me started. I have such a difficult time with that. Single mom and all. He will never be in his son's life, more is the pity for that man.

But today? Smiling. Do you ever just wake up and you are smiling? It's such a rare occurrence for me. But when it does happen, the attitude is GRATEFUL!

So thank you smile. Monday's bite, but you do not. ;-)


  1. The same thing happened to me lately. I'm doing the pulling away thing too and it's hard. But I'm glad you woke up smiling today. Days like that are good. :)

  2. glad you smiling today!

    Im smiling too....sorta :)

    its not worth it trying to make someone happy at one's own expense.

  3. Glad you are feeling better.
    Hope you smile more often..
    I bet your little boy can make you smile anytime he wants to..I know mine can..

    Bunches of hugs....

  4. dont be blue missy! turn that frown, upside down (and all that other positive crap!).

  5. Karma: Heya! Yea. I read your blog. good to see you.

    goddess: yea. I wasn't doing a service to anyone.

    steph: yea he does. most of the time sometimes there are too many other things involved and i have to clear a path.

    slyde: Thanks handsome! glad you are feeling better. :HUG:

  6. My sister has a tough time with Father's Day, being a single Mom as well.

    She cried this year when her 7-year old son and 5-year old daughter both made me, Uncle Earl, Father's Day gifts.

    I got a bit misty too.

  7. Earl: yea its a tough day for the single mom's who have to explain the "father" situation. How fun to be an Uncle to your niece and nephew.

  8. Don't worry......
    be happy......
    We all love you!!!
