This is a part of my story I haven't really shared yet. In 2005, I fell in love with a man I'd been friends with since 1997. In 2008, we married and he legally adopted my son. In 2012, I cheated on him and became pregnant with my daughter. The next six years was a long story of a relationship from hell with my daughter's father. When I left him, I reconnected with my estranged husband, and my son finally reconnected with his dad. I was healing and regrouping, and could only offer my friendship, and he forgave and accepted. He was a very good friend to me for almost two years and I loved him very much. On August 5, 2020, he passed away... And I knew him and loved him for so long that his death leaves an empty space in my heart that isn't going to close. All I can do is fill it with memories-- we did have a lot of good ones.💜💜

Um ok ...

So you know how nurses always say the Dr will be in shortly and then it's usually like 20 mins or so? I'm at an appointment right now and the nurse just straight up told me I'll be waiting for about 30 minutes-- "enjoy my alone time!" I wonder what that translates to in terms of "shortly". #Fibromyalgia #Osteoarthritis #multiplegidisorders #sjogrens

Excited that I figured out how to put words on pictures... LOL!

So I figured out how to use my computer's paint program (I'm quite a dino-techo-saurus, haha), and I got this poem I wrote put onto this pic collage I put together, though not sure how readable. I'm learning 😁!

Backroad, smoky, sunset drive

Just to get out of the crazy city jive

Mini-me in the back, mirror-wink live

Mom’s silly reach back high-five

Crank up the tunes

Commence belted-seat dance moves

Check out those rocks that look like runes

And that field with the overrun blooms

Spontaneous stop to walk a trail

And, oh, there’s a tiny lake beyond that tree veil

Gathering ducks squawking their tale

“It’s ok to wade in, kiddo, the water’s swell.”

Finally back in the car, to home, retreat

Happy girl, soaked, in the backseat

“Did we have an adventure, mom?” she asks, so sweet

“Yes, we did, baby! Are you beat?”

“Nope! Can we take the long way home?!”

Trying something...#ArtTherapy #MightyPoets

Wrote this poem and started playing around with fonts... Thinking it might be over the character limit to just type out so I hope it is readable in this picture. #Fibromyalgia #sjogrens #Osteoarthritis #multiplegidisorders #Anxiety #PTSD #Singlemom #mykidsareawesome
