The things I do ..

It was a lazy start to the Monday. Woke from a dream which I wish I could remember . It must have been something of a sort to have me wanting to remember I guess the feeling I had when I woke was the reason. Grabbed a quick shower and then off to the kitchen for some much needed coffee.. oh my poison.. I only had one cup. Surprised? Don’t be because I knew my daughter and I were heading out to food shop and I knew we would stop for coffee always a given. After food shopping was finished the sun decided to show itself so I was fueled up with caffeine and wanted to be out. So we took a ride. As of today it’s 3 yrs that a child lost her life to a bus accident in our community. 9 yrs old her knapsack strap was caught in the door of the the bus . Negligence of the bus driver who shut the door too soon and not realizing she was trapped as he took drove off to his next stop the rest is self explained😥 this little girl will never be forgotten . She was so precious. I felt it was only fitting to go to the cemetery and think about her visit with her. . My daughter and I have this thing about cemetery’s . We find them peaceful and we use to go a bit more then we do . She went with me today . And we said a prayer for the precious child. My daughter said to me ” I know we do not come here much and I know you like to . I was quiet for a moment. And then started to drive .I stopped at the beautiful fountain that’s sits in the beginning of the entrance guarded by a medal design fence. She looked at me and said ” oh why have we stopped here. I told her this is where I park when I come by myself to find some peace and to collect my thoughts and yes to be by myself , no one would think except for her and a close friend that this is where you could find me if needed. I just love to listen to the fountain bubbling and have some soft music playing quietly in the car . And yes I let my thoughts drift. It’s really a nice feeling . Comforting .. yes I said it and this is a person afraid of death. I guess it’s more about the unknown of it. So yes this is where we sat for a bit and talked . It was nice. And well needed. So have I made you think of me differently now? Some would be a bit standoffish by this. We all have a place where we find comfort. And yes this is mine.

Dr. Seuss’s Birthday !

It’s Dr. Seuss’s Birthday ! He wrote so many amazing books a lot of kids enjoyed and still enjoy . My daughter and son had two favorite Dr.Seuss stories .Green eggs and ham and Are you my Mother? Now are you my Mother was written by P.D. Eastman but in with the series of Dr. Seuss my kids love reading them before bed several times over until I had to finally say ok no more lights out. My daughter would be great about it and we would say our goodnight saying ,I posted this In past posts ..something cute she came up with and a bit time consuming but I think that was her point 🙂.My son would just keep saying one more time with reading and I having to get a bit stern and tell him no and tuck him back in after he was standing up in his bed protesting . 🙄 yes my kids so totally different from one another

. I love at their Elementary school they had someone dressed up in a Dr.Seuss costume .I must say why they had a women do it I’ll never know ..hahaha leave it to my daughter to wonder why Dr. Seuss had a chest haha ..yeah she pointed that out … then yes later as my son was older he would say to one of his friends it gives it away for the little kids knowing that it isn’t really Dr.Suess with a chest I would just roll my eyes as I listen to him and his friend talk about it . But I do agree hahaha …anyways it was nice they would read Green eggs and ham as the kids all sat in the lunch room and then there was a big birthday cake and the kids would sing happy birthday .It was cute. I don’t know if they still do it ,it would be a shame if they didn’t but like everything ,.things change ,kids have changed. .well my kids are adults now but they do remember those books and that time which is nice and comforting to know because at that time things seem so much simpler and kids were kids . And it just seems like kids do not read as much as they use to . Now being replaced by cellphones and texting a bit more.Only my opinion …
