Happy Birthday Week

Sushi and Cake for Monday
Day 1 of my birthday week
Just for me

It’s my happy birth week!
Is there such a thing? 
Oh yeah, I say, to you
Nothing wrong with celebrating
Celebrating my survival
Despite the challenges of parenting

Sometimes, I wonder
Should I help, should I not?
With their adulting, that is
That may be quite a lot?

They are able to work
And weak, they are not
They can earn like their mom
Pay their bills (most of them)
Not delay and what not

Things like reminding them to get up
To make it to work
Not be tardy or miss 
Their ride and miss work

Or make sure to make
College education a priority
So, they don’t end up on the mercy
To live on charity
Or be a burden to me
Or to our society


  1. happy birth week to you! I like to over-celebrate, if there is such a thing. enjoy! I liked your poem, too.

  2. Happy Birthday all week and that Sushi looks so yumm


  3. Although I've just eaten, you know how to raise an apetite

Surrounding  Visiting Spending time with the people you love Takes a chunk of your time Yet the pay off is worthwhile I did these just yesterday and the day before While the days were bright, no rain, no pour So today it’s wet and we could not go out  I am thankful we did as we all look up

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
