Silver Chain

I wear one. I bought it for myself. It’s nothing fancy but it’s real. As I kissed Sergio goodbye he grabbed it. He didn’t want to let go of it. I pulled it from his fingers and shut the door.

I lit up as my children were driven away. Now comes my question for you. Have you ever cried in public? I do it all the time now and yes, it is a sign of a leper. So stay back.

I'm just a skinny girl with a lot of hair and a couple of stories. I'm 26, married, and have two very active, sparkly-eyed babies. My mother lives with me so I've got my best ally and source of wisdom here, too. Everything I do is for my family. We like to garden, paint, start projects, read, and watch a little bit of Netflix. I'm working on my cooking, parenting with patience, and learning how to love life where I'm at. Though I've abandoned my degree three times in two different states (yes, I said three times), I have listened and watched and picked up a couple of tips. Most of what I write is entirely non-fictional because I let life spin the tales. I'm ready to learn more and am excited to meet others on the same path. This is to serve as a record of what I've done. All pictures have been taken by me, unless otherwise credited.

  1. I have cried in public.
    You a leper? Hardly. Lepers do not share their stories so that others can learn and so that they themselves can heal. Stay strong and you will get through this. It may not turn out the way you would want it to. More positive vibes being sent your way.

      1. i dont like to see women cry. especially those i may have a connection with. strangers? if i can, i will comfort as well as i can. but i agree, most dont know how to react to an adult crying, yet if a child is crying we rush to its aid.
