Meet her some day

posted on: August 11, 2014

This is a poem I wrote. It needs brushing up and fixing but the first draft is below. I dedicate this to my daughter Caelyn. She is entering high school and decided she wants to become an author one day. Her dad told her to write. Writers write always… I don’t know if that dream will ever come true or not but if it interested her now….we say go for it. As long as she is pursuing a dream and not just being a bump on a log. Caelyn, we believe in you! You can do anything! You can be anybody! You can go anywhere! Go save the world!


Anyways I wrote stories since I was eight years old. My 5th grade teacher, Ms. Poole used to let me write stories instead of do my classwork at school. She believed in me. She told me to dedicate my first book to her and still to this day she ask me about that book that I have never written yet….and at 30 that dream seems dead and gone. Sad…. I wish I had a book to dedicate to her. I wish I had something to show her that she didn’t believe in me for nothing but that I can be what she thought I could be……

You are gonna meet her on the street one day

She’s gonna be better than you

She’s gonna be worse off than you

She’s gonna be every decision you never made

She’s gonna be the failures you didn’t fall into

She’s gonna be the triumphant wins you never won

She’s gonna be the victory you never chased

She’s out there

But she’s not you

She is not you

School starts in 2 days here!

Eeeeek I am sooooooo excited! School starts in two days! This will be my first year at a local private school teaching the A beka curr. I am nervous about juggling everything. Life is going to get really busy soon.

School*piano lessons*bible quiz practice*sign language practice*church*youth service* and that doesn’t begin to describe house work and meals and that fairy tale dream of a night out with my husband NOT buying groceries! So say a prayer for all the moms out there who are about to begin juggling a heavier schedule…me included. I have one in Pre-school, elementary and one starting high school! Wow……….


I found an article online that I may use in the future. I don’t have time now but it is an interesting thought….create food that last months and only cook once a month or so…. go check it out.
