When A Song Breaks Your Heart and Time Makes You LOVE IT


 

I am the “Momma” in this song.

The first time I heard it I felt like I had been kicked in the gut. It hurt…

Since then, due a lot to counseling and input from friends who’s parents divorced, I have come to view this song not as an attempt to hurt anyone, but instead I can simply appreciate the song for what it is; beautiful like the person who wrote it.

“Baby girl, you’d better call your momma tonight
Baby girl, tell your momma that you’re doing alright”

I don’t know where to go from here, I
Haven’t seen momma in a year
Why can’t she see I don’t wanna
Hear it, not tonight?

“Baby girl, your momma bought you something today.”
“Baby girl, don’t you have something that you wanna say?”

I don’t know if I can thank you for
Trying to make up after losing that War
Momma, buying love won’t fix us, not tonight

And I know you’re trying so hard
All the gifts & all the birthday cards
Momma, you just need to give me time to think
To grow
To blink
And know

I think I’d better call my momma tonight….

I was SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUSLY Elated on Easter – 4 small Words


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

    FOUR SIMPLE WORDS was all it took to have me on cloud nine all day Easter, and well into Monday.
    No, the words weren’t “Smile Jesus Loves You” although it is those four words that have helped me make it to a bit over 50 years…
    No, it wasn’t “you won the powerball”.  ….
    The words appeared as if by magic in the form of two texts sent moments apart on my iPad. The first…
    “HAPPY EASTER”
    and then I replied, “I love you”
    I walked away thinking that would be it not much, it was SOMETHING at least.  Then it happened again.  The familiar ding/ding sound of an incoming text called me back to my iPad.
    This time the screen said,
    “Love You”
    My heart seemed to want to fly out of my chest.  I began hollering “YAAAA HOOO!!!” At the top of my voice.  My wonderful, caring, and sweetheart husband came to see what I was yelling about.  I had tears streaming down my cheeks. My feet left the floor and I was walking suddenly on cloud nine as I informed him my daughter loves me.
    What a powerful thing love is.

A Pingback to “A Beautiful Life” with Reality Check


My Reply to A Beautiful Life A beautiful life.
Hi there,
I don’t mean to pee in your Cheerios but I just gotta say, yes, there is wisdom in this point of view, especially if it helps you get through some trauma. It isn’t very realistic though for people who are facing serious events like war torn villages in the Middle East, a woman being raped, a person being killed for not following a religion or participating in a Jihad… These and many other awful things DO happen to people every day. Putting on rose colored glasses, trying to see the beauty in ugly things, this creates apathy. In my opinion, It is dangerous to be apathetic.

Please do, try to find the beauty in the wonders of the world but please don’t pretend that you can blindfold yourself to the HARD, OVERWHELMING PAINFUL reality of evil that is present in our world and which we must fight to overcome.

God Bless and Keep You,
Leah (Lovesblues)
