Sometimes Silver Linings are Blue

Sorry Not Sorry



More than a woman keeps this place alive

Inhaling, exhaling to help us survive

Heart pumping to maintain an even flow

Cultivating our dreams, helping them to grow

Eyes full of color during the black and whites

Rising in the mornings, sustaining through the nights

Not just any woman can do what I do

It’s all because I belong to you

  4. I love that Pat Benatar song. 🎶🎼 All of the above referenced moments in your GIFs feel like lost memories. I guess it’s what happens when a girl grows up. 💔💘

    • I love Pat Benatar ❤️ She has always been
      someone I admired growing up. She sang with strong conviction and always had inspiring songs.
      This piece I wrote a few years back. I recall writing it when life was chaotic for me but Always making sure it was never felt by my husband. Having young children and feeling exhausted was something I never wanted him to feel.
      I did my best to be the best mother and wife I could be. I’m sure I failed at times but I tried to never allow him to
      Feel neglected. It seems I must not of tried hard enough. Thank you for always having encouraging words for me. You’re amazing, sweet friend. ❤️
