text messages

I’ve been known to be a shy person for quite some time now. But with the help of text messaging I am able to say exactly how I feel. Am I hiding behind my full qwerty keypad? You could say that.

I usually don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, get involved in a verbal confrontation nor do I want to belittle some of the ignorance that comes across my screen. Read More

I was and still am a bona fide Daddy’s girl, despite my father’s demise in 1995, a month after my high school graduation. I think that’s where my life sort of changed.

It was difficult for me to see my place in this world without his jokes, his hugs, his love, his stern words, and his special daddy ways. I was actually not allowed on my first date until I was almost 17 years old. I could leave a note for my dad to wash the dishes for me, so I wouldn’t get in trouble by my mom for neglecting my chores (which now I realize was so selfish, he had worked all night and I left more work for him). My dad also taught me how to drive, Read More
