Daily Prompt: Moments to Remember

Mercy almost dying Feb 27, 2013 and a doctor saying, “She’s really sick. We don’t know why and we don’t know if she’s gonna make it. It might be leukemia.” Thank God she got better and is thriving. There are still more steps to achieve, but critical isn’t even on the table any more.
Stay positive has always been my motto, even when I’ve been gripped by cynicism and sarcasm. I’ve always tried to keep a forward thinking positive outlook. I have to. The present isn’t a bed of roses most of the time.
It’s harder to stay positive when things are moderately shitty, than when they are really shitty. Like when Mercy was dying in the hospital, I was permanently optimistic. I refused to get negative. I knew that my positive outlook and up attitude could be heard/felt by Mercy, even when she was completely unconscious and it was calling to her to get better. And she did get better.

I do promise to try to get better as I go and am open to suggestions and constructive criticism. Continue reading
I wasn’t looking for a new job…one may have found me. I found out that a full-time position just came available in a company that has advancement capabilities and it is a job that I can really do well First, let me give you some history.
I was ALWAYS a good student. Some called me a teacher’s pet. I didn’t agree completely with that nickname, but it mostly fit. I was the student that no one was ever worried about, they knew that I would always succeed. Therefore, no one noticed that I had low reading comprehension and no one ever suggested careers that I might be good at or love. So anytime anyone asked me what I wanted to be, I made it up. How could I admit that I didn’t know? that I had no dreams? The only thing that I knew for sure was that I would be a mom. Continue reading
