My Little Hims

My Anniversary

A year ago I started my blog with a story about my Mother.  Rather than post my stats and my “accomplishments” of the year, I have chosen this verse from Proverbs because it reminds me so very much of her.

You are dearly missed ~M

Beyond These Walls

His name was Tito. Well, to be honest I don’t think that was his name but that’s what people called him. According to my son, he was well liked by everyone. According to Tito he would never fit in to society.

They will definitely be “On the Move”

There is a story behind the picture.
I am not sure I am ready to write about it yet.
Maybe another day.

Earlier in the week another WordPress Blogger told me this was her favorite post in the A to Z Challenge in April 2014.  The timing was perfect for me to repost it for Mother’s Day.

I hope everyone had a great day. ~ Monique

Dear Mom:

I wonder sometimes how you did it. How did you sit back and watch me make all my mistakes in life never once judging me? As you probably know the boys are testing my limits. Yes, your precious grandsons. But with you as my mentor I know I will get through this.

I miss you now more than ever. I’m tired of being tired. My get up and go has got up and gone. Test after test. Colonoscopy first, that was a buttload of fun. Ultrasound, HIDA scan, endoscopy .. I just can’t wait to have a radioactive chemical injected into my veins. Regardless of what this may be I have no fear because I know one day I will see you again.

And by the way you were right, Ray was a keeper. And he has kept his promise to you.

I love you Mom,
Monique

My darling daughter:

I was able to watch you make your mistakes with a chuckle because I knew my precious grandsons would give you twice as much grief. Be patient as there are no limits when it comes to being a mother.

I know you have not been feeling well. I am glad you do not fear death but don’t be so eager to come see me. You have alot to live for and people who need you. I will be here when your time comes and until then you are in my prayers.

I had a good feeling about Ray. I think that is why I was finally able to let go and begin my journey in heaven.

Love to all,
Mom

Love

Love comes in many fashions
There are those we choose to love
And those we are supposed to love

Love is emotional trickery
There are those you can’t love enough
And those you wonder how you ever loved

Love is a precious gift
There are those you keep in a tiny box all to yourself
And those in a big box that you share

Love is a moment in time
Love me all you can today
For I may be gone tomorrow.

I am Strong

wpid-large.jpegJustin was a senior and Sally a junior when they were crowned prom King and Queen and voted Most Beautiful Couple.

As Sally was finishing high school the following year,  Justin was attending his freshman year of college and found he had little time for Sally due to his academic schedule.

Immediately following graduation Sally hurried to Austin to attend University of Texas with her high school sweetheart.

Sadly, it didn’t take long for Sally to realize that it wasn’t Justin’s academic schedule that had consumed all of his time.

Although she prayed that night for the strength to get through his betrayal, Sally was found the next morning in a puddle of blood with her crown tangled in her matted blonde hair.

Our Only Purpose

th

the world and its characters are always confused
without tangible things our egos are bruised
performing for others a sinister lie
lying in bed we then ask ourselves why

money is evil and one day we’ll learn
we don’t need it all and we won’t crash and burn
we know the difference between right and wrong
we don’t have to be criminals just to belong
no one could ever know what happened here
when there were no rules no remorse and no fear
life could be simple with no inner wars
if we cherished the sun and the moon and the stars
take a deep breath and be thankful today
that you have the choice to go your own way
you don’t have to impress me or another
just live for our God my sister and brother
