#standwithsophie #saveourchildren

Hello friends!  

I can’t believe it’s been 16 days since I wrote.  I have been following #standwithsophie and #saveourchildren.  If you thought that #metoo opened the flood gates, just wait because Sophie Long broke the dam wide open!  She is the most courageous child filled with such strength.  Her father, Michael Long, posted a video of her standing up to her grandmother about how her mother had watched men sexually assault her.  She was screaming, “why don’t you believe me?.  From there, it has been mind-blowing.  You have corrupt judges, lawyers, and police, but today Michael was awarded custody of his children until the November court date.  Do you know what surprised me the most about this situation?  The mainstream media did not pick up the story.  However, Facebook, TikTok, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram were flooded with videos and posts showing support for Sophie.  There is a GoFundMe to cover Michael’s legal fees.  I have seen the world, yes the world rally around Sophie and her brothers! 

The fight is not over.  We are standing with you Sophie!  

Much Love

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
