Rest Bobby, My Friend, My Brother, Rest in Peace!

We have come a long way from childhood, sitting under the old oak, wishing to get older and having our own home. No one told us as children, that being an adult was being responsible and accountable for our actions. We just wanted to be grown. Well, children, grandchildren and even a grandchild later, you left to return your heavenly home before us. We are so blessed to have known each other for 60 plus years and have seen each other this past year. We were fellow Sagittarians, born one year apart. Harold was the one born in May. Interesting enough, his birthday is coming up on the 20th. We were the original three. We’ll miss you, Bobby! Love you! We will see each other on the other side.

Momma Bennett, Dorothy, Mz C, Harold, Lolita, Nae, Mike, Bill & Tonya, you all are in my prayers.

I Am So Tired!

Those were the words I heard Sunday 3/18/18 from my best friend, Harold. We’ve been friends for over 55 years ever since childhood. He has been fighting brain cancer for 4 long years dealing with several surgeries, radiation and chemo. His left eye and left nostril were taken and even a part of his skull. We all thought that the last surgery on his skull would give him some pain relief. Harold normally talks until I tell him I’m getting off the phone. Well, not this time, he was in so much pain that he felt ready to leave this world.  It even pained him to talk. I didn't have much to say, one reason was that I had to strain to hear him. He had been this way all week and his body was tired.

"I am so tired" were the words my mother told me before she passed. How naive of me to think that I would ask her to lay down and get some rest. She quickened me lovingly that she meant something much deeper. Something that I had always denied to myself, that my mother would live forever. Not long after that, she passed on Monday, the day after Easter, March 24, 2008. Easter was one of her favorite holidays.  In fact, mom's 10th year anniversary will be March 24, 2018, this year.

I miss you, mom! Thank you for the wonderful years!

Dorothy and Harold, you are forever in my prayers!

Silence Will Not Make You Invisible!

Has anyone noticed that in this new political climate that if a subject isn't discussed, it must not exist? Key members in the current administration have resigned due to domestic violence where the ex-wives were physically abused, but their lives“are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation.” Allegations? Allegations supported by court documents are no longer allegations. My fault, this comes from the person who alleged that President Obama is Kenyan. And having the gaul to expectorate due process for these abusers is absolutely pitiful. He ( The Name I Can No Longer Mention) actually encouraged division is responsible for doing the work of the Russians because his collusion with them does not exist. And if he doesn't talk about it, it didn't happen. Afterall, being silent is acceptance. Don't speak out against the wrongs happening towards others, it might happen to you. If no one else speaks out for the silent voices, don't expect anyone to speak out for you.

Respect to Rand Paul for questioning the passing of the high federal budget deal that Republicans did not want to pass under President Obama.  Hypocrisy at its finest! Or, something else? Perception or discernment?

Always keeping Dorothy & Harold in my prayers.
