We Go Together

We go together like PB and J
We go together just this way

We go together like one and two
We go together just me and you

We go together like sand and seas
We go together a pod with two peas

We go together like here and there
We go together like a matchless pair

We go together like coffee and cream
We go together like love in a dream

We go together like a perfect rhyme
And we’ll go together for a lifetime

Because…
I am yours and you are mine©

My Child

hildren_well_parenting_for_authentic_success_1

Perhaps it’s because my oldest turned 16 this week or maybe because we have been dealing with many struggles this year already in my two teen’s lives. But, I have had my kids on my mind a lot this week. As many mom’s do, we worry and with that give- whether it’s time, emotions, energy or sleep! We are often pulled in so many directions, with little of anything left for ourselves. So, here’s to my children and all those mom’s out there that are doing what we do, thinking of our kids. Love, Mac 

To My Children

My child please see yourself the way I do

Perfect and pure and true

My child please feel compassion for others

With friends, walk as brothers

My child please taste of the fruit of your labor

Work hard and life savor

My child please take time to breathe it all in

Drown out the world’s din

My child please hear each of the words I say

I love you in every way©

Keep It Together

491380135

Why do you call one another names?

You say that you are faultless

As many self-proclaim

But life is not always black and white

And sometimes we disagree

Or we straight out fight

But to dismiss what one holds true

Belittle, label another person

Is not for me or you to do

If we could all just be more self-aware

Consider each other’s view

As this world we share

Using slurs such as prejudice and racist

Name calling without reason

No proof or any basis

This will not bring us together in any way

Make the divisions larger still

Never see a newer day

Why not grow? Instead you embrace the strife

Not understanding how to respect all

Or learn about each other’s life

I ask you to look for some good in every person

As you will encounter many on this journey

Instead of the conflicts worsen

Don’t hold things against another without cause

Take time to learn about each other, listen

So future generations can applause©

A Taste Of History

A trip to the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington, NC proved to have many great historical things to see. From the deck and multiple floors below, to the Captain’s quarters and more, it remains a time capsule. Here you see a recreation of a soda shop which correlates with the era. This is where you can have a bite to eat while touring. In response to Tuesday Photo Challenge: Nostalgia

The Ocean Song

dsc_0041-2

by Mac©

I could listen all night long to the sound of your rhythmic song

Your waves they splash to and fro as the waters ebb and flow

I shut my eyes, listen close as I hear the song you chose

A perfect pitch, a lucid role as you sing a tranquil solo

The melody touches deep, soothing me, I fall asleep

Sands of time are lost to me as I drift out to sea

Dancing on waters vast, but night will not last

So I bid you, adieu! Oh Ocean, I do love you©

You Are

You are my hideaway

Where I long to be

When the world gets tough

Your love rescues me

You are my shooting star

When I search the sky

The light to guide my way

A twinkle in my eye

You are my sweet melody

Rythm to my feet

Giving my heart a song

Make it skip a beat

You are my precious gem

Diamond in the rough

You’ve been cut and shaped

Life’s made you tough

You are my all and everything

With you I long to be

No question, this love’s forever

Between you and me©

To Whomever Invented Glitter

375eab2abc09b660c5f1efbaf0bbc2cb

To: Whomever invented glitter, you suck! From: The moms that have had the duty of trying to clean that crap out of EVERYTHING!

Okay, who thought putting clitter on gift wrap of any kind was a good idea? I mean, have you ever found yourself glitter”ized” by the time you finished wrapping a gift? Running out of the house because you’re late to a birthday party; only to arrive looking like a stripper mom! Not cool man. Although, likely you are not the only one there, it’s actually like a stripper reunion. 

010bf34634f7374eeab5b224e60ab138

Then you have those that believe crafting with glitter is an AMAZING idea! They enjoy sending your child home from a party or school with glittered “art”! WTH, that is NOT art! That is a glitter bomb waiting to explode all over my house! One that will permeate every orifice of living space and my child’s body. 

Finally, what is with the glitter in EVERY woman’s product? Nails, makeup, lotions, body sprays, let alone the clothing. Again, if I wanted to look like a slu… well you get my point! PLEASE, stop putting glitter on and in everything; if we were meant to poop glitter we would all be unicorns!© 

 

Signed, Mac
