come into my closet, come under my bed, where you'll find me hiding,
the fear in my head.

abuse in the past, now, where do i start, making my future,
healing my heart.

crushed, and broken, falling fast-
needing comfort, make it last.

Sunday Funnies - camel what?

My 9 year old came home asking what camel toe is.

I won't go into the WAY TO LONG explanation that my husband gave him, or the fact that my son has been asking for a month, and he has been putting it off; or the advice he was given at work on how to tell our son.

Also, you DON'T want to see the pictures he drew [quick explaination, they were all of animals feet, up to the camels foot/toe, and then a few of...well go ahead, imagine]! yet, you don't want to visualize my husband pulling his pants up really high to give him an effective, my boys will never be the same, example of it.

At near the end of this fabulous lesson in words we wish our kids never had to understand, explained that camel toe is like a sign.


Follow me:

He goes on to say, like the loser sign; is the L.

Which brings us to things our kids should never learn from us:

now my 7 year old pipes in: Oh, I know dad, you mean like when mom holds her three fingers up and says, "Read between the lines." You know how if you take away these two fingers it means......

Dad interrupting him: (how he can respond without busting up is beyond me), "Yes, exactly. And again, NOT one of the things that you should do just because OTHER PEOPLE (including your MOTHER) do it."

I have an old notebook that I wrote down funny things that my kids said. When my grandson came along I started writting his "funnies" down as well. It's good reading when I'm feeling depressed.
My rule was usually "yes" you can say it in the house and "no" you can't say that outside the family.
PS: My rule rarely worked. ;)

It's quite a trip to put attention on how soon kids learn the things you don't want them to. You can teach things to them all your like, but they only pick the ones that are taught by example. when they are little they sound soooo funny doing adult stuff, i have grandkids, so I know.

I needed this laugh today. It made me think of my oldest, when she was younger she loved that song "Every time you go away"...she would sing "Every time you go take a piece of MEAT with you". HAHAHA Kids are precious and priceless!

OMG I love this...the conversation must have been so hard to not just sit and try really hard not to laugh..this is great! Grateful for the humour today!


who I was, who I am, who I plan to be...

i am trying to heal from severe childhood sexual, emotional,
physical, and mental abuse; and abandonment.

this is my story.

i have good and bad days, and some days the odds seem insurmountable.
i cling to the hope that healing will come to mend the shatter pieces of my heart, mind and body.

mile 191, well, you will understand as you read along.
mile 191, portions of my past have a link on the top right.
mile 191, bottoms up. hears to you and to me.

please, if you know me, just let me know you found me. i need honesty. (and please do not use personal names)
if you want to follow my story, please try to heal with me.
if you want to share with me, please do.
i will post bits of my pain as i can, and leave it here.
i once thought that i would publish...i haven't had the courage.

this is my closet, you are welcome to come in.
just know this is my refuge, healing takes place here,
maybe it will be a refuge to you too.

Helen Keller

Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard, ' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'
