Please God, Just One More Day

  My dear sweet Heavenly Father I come to you today

With faith and hope I ask

Please God…Don’t take my Mom away

One day with her is all I ask, just one more day together

If I could have one more day with her I would make it last forever

I know her time is near and soon you’ll take her home

Where she will be so perfect and a beautiful Angel she’ll roam

Heaven with more colors than we even know

Where even the rarest of flowers sing in the loveliest picture show

Her sparkle lights up the darkness like the brightest star of night

Rising in our hearts her brightest loving light

Life will never be the same since she was called away

Her light shone bright in the darkest hours of each and every day

I believe that she is with me when the sorrow is too much

I believe that she reaches out to me

I know that I feel her touch

When tomorrow starts without her don’t think we’re far apart

For every time I think of her she’s right here in my heart

Every day I miss the smile that no one can replace

Yet still it brings me comfort in the sadness that I face

Until we meet again I’ll find the strength to live through each new day

Grateful for the happy years before she went away

My Dear sweet Heavenly Father with hope and faith I pray

Please take us all to Heaven’s final resting place, at last, we all can stay

Please God, Just One More Day.

I Love You Mom…With all of My Heart,

Your Daughter,

Shirley

In Loving Memory of my beautiful Mom

Bad Boys, Bad Boys…What you going to do when they come for you?!

Blog By August 1, 2016 Tags: , , , , , ,

It was not long ago I wrote a blog about how nice guys do not always finish last. This is still true. However, I can tell you the bad boys rarely, if ever finish last compared to the nice guys. More often they finish first! There is something about taking that risk with a bad boy that is highly sexy and attractive to many females. The bad boy has a charm and confidence about him that speaks volumes and distracts us women from the truth of what we are getting ourselves into. In all fairness to the men, we are all grown up women who take full responsibility for taking on the bad boys and all of the fallout and heartbreak that comes with it.

Women ignore the giant red flags waving and slapping us in our faces. We also make excuses in our minds for these bad boys and their behavior. We just cannot resist the temptation from these bad boys. It is almost like when you are in a dream and you wake and feel paralyzed for a moment and cannot move but you are fully aware of your surroundings and your body. You know the inherent dangers but you just do not care! That animalistic magnetic quality combined with his alluring way he projects himself onto you is a battle you just can not win with yourself. We throw in the white flag and follow his lead no matter where that may take us!

Opposites Attract…But do they last?

Blog By July 31, 2016 Tags: , , , , ,

vintage-ford-1209620_1920The old saying “opposites attract” is absolutely true but can these two opposites have a long lasting relationship? When I am talking about ‘opposites’ I do not mean you have some differences and also share some common things. I mean down right opposite. One is educated and the other is not. One may be financially stable and the other is completely in debt. One may live a simple life in the country and the other enjoys the cultures and available opportunities of the city life. These two can see something in the other that is magical and so different that initially, the magnetic attraction is undeniable and sustainable in that moment.

Being complete opposites can be both good and bad. You may have crazy chemistry with someone different from you as you crave that part of them you do not have. The unknown and something completely new to you can be very attractive and create a fiery chemistry between you both. A city girl, for example, may find peace and good ole’ southern comfort in a backwoods country boy. The city girl sees it as refreshing having a more traditional relationship with this southern gentleman. The backwoods country boy treats her like a fairy tale princess. The country boy may find the city girl interesting and exciting as she is not like anyone he has ever known before.

My husband likes to act like he is wealthy…

Shirley Says By February 22, 2016 Tags: , , ,

Dear Shirley,

My husband likes to act like he is wealthy like his friends are, which he is not, we are just middle class. When we go out to dinner at very nice restaurants he insists on picking up the tab for everyone, which is way more than we can afford. I have tried to talk to him about it but he ignores my concerns and continues the behavior.
What else can I do?!

Corrina

Dear Corrina,

The first thing I want you to do is to go to your junk drawer, everyone has one of these, get your scissors and cut up your husband’s credit and debit cards immediately! I’m joking! Please do not do this! Now that we had a little laugh at your husband’s expense (no pun intended) let’s address your concern. Cutting up his cards is a temporary solution and would not be helpful to your relationship.
