Reasons I Love My Daughter in School :

  • She makes new friends.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of friendships. I truly wish I realized this, that my parents nurtured this idea when I was my daughter’s age.

Suddenly I don’t feel so alone in the ” sometimes” struggles that feel like suffocation.

  • I hear others parenting.

#7 Well Done Meal

With the humidity here in Cleveland, I’ve lived on salads, sandwiches, and finger refrigerator foods. It’s awesome to know it’s healthy, and my body appreciates the sentiment. It’s just calories make me feel a bit more me and much less like Dracula! 😂😂😂 (Insert any Snickers commercial here..) This evening, I managed to bake chicken breasts covered with ranch dressing and Italian breadcrumbs! It was AMAZING!! The meat was super moist and loaded with flavor! I made Spanish Rice and a small veggies and cheese combo side! Collectively, everything complimented one another and was delicious! My girls weren’t interested in having any so I even got to enjoy it HOT!!

“Yay for happiness on a plate😂😂😂😂”

#1 Songs match my moods

When I can’t find the right words, music never fails. Two days ago, I was listening to Linkin Park. The song, Numb, played and I couldn’t believe how it spoke to me. I’d heard it so many times before; but, this was as if I’d heard it for the first time. Does that ever happen to you? Do you listen to the song but don’t actually understand it until it relates to your life? I’m happy that there will always be moments like this… Music therapy is essential food for my soul.

Numb: Linkin Park

In The End: Linkin Park
