Day 15 of a new life...

Day by day..

Day 15 of a new life.. no longer a kept woman, no longer a wife..
Lace curtains I hung upon my new front porch.. girly and pretty…
All about the beach and sandy shores…
Dinner I cooked with one person in mind…
For once… me, myself and I…
Pork steak smothered with onion and mushrooms…
One apple from my apple tree of the seven it bore…
Homemade stuffing with the taste from the sea…
Crab meat… spread gingerly… and then the sweet taste…
Of bogs from afar… the last harvest of cranberries…
But not from a jar…
A fire built in the fire pit in the back yard…
The night was cold… but the sky full of stars…
I am weary now from my day filled with chores…
Mowing the yard, raking the yard…
Doing the laundry and feeding the cats…
All the same I did before… but was taken for not…
A wondrous phone call from my daughter of his first wife…
Wanting and needing to share with me what was happening…
In her life… and her little ones… the innocent ones…
Who have no clue yet… what grown ups are all about…
Thank you my daughter for our beautiful time…
Spent sharing what girls do… talking all the time…
See men just do not get that… we are chatty or bitchy…
If only they would learn to listen…
We are just sharing, reminiscing, and remembering…
It is the difference between boys and girls…
This is my advice to my children and yours…
Life goes on and only because…
Women get it… and can figure out how to move on…
So goodnight my sweethearts… where ever you are…
Momma will always be momma…
And someday you will really understand, when looking up for me in the stars…
Always know my children… I am here and near… not afar…
It takes a woman and a mother to put logs on the fire!
goodnight… this mom is so very tired♥
