9/11/2001…In Our Hearts Forever!

I was going through some old writings of mine. On the one year anniversary of 9/11, we held a little memorial at our farm. I wrote these words to go with the song “How Do I Live,” which was sung by both LeAnn Rimes and Trisha Yearwood. I thought I would share this today.

The Great U.S.A.

Yes, Bin Laden
Unleashed his evil that day
Tried to take our freedoms from us
Sent our loved ones away

But he failed his task
All he did was get us to unite
Now we’re stronger hand in hand

And we will move on
He can never take away all we have
We will stand strong

Chorus:

So hear our song
Our Flag will fly, forever
The Red, White, and Blue
We’ll fly it high, together
It’s what we will do
We are a nation of strength, hope, and pride
America, America, our country, our home.

In this nation
We fight for what we believe
Try to keep the goodness alive
For the dreams we conceive

So together
We will beat the evil that has come
With our hearts, our minds, our souls

And we will stand strong
Terrorists will never rule the U.S.A.
They don’t belong

Chorus:

So hear our song
Our Flag will fly forever
The Red, White, and Blue
We’ll fly it high, together
It’s what we will do
We are a nation of strength, hope, and pride
America, America, our country, our home.

 Yes, we will move on

And we will stand strong
Terrorists will never rule the U.S.A.
They don’t belong
We will always do it the American way
We’ll right the wrong

Chorus:

So hear our song
Our Flag will fly, forever
The Red, White, and Blue
We’ll fly it high, together
It’s what we will do
We are a nation of strength, hope, and pride
America, America, our country, our home.

We are the Great U. S. A.

Seduced By Food!

We have all opened our refrigerator door to stare at that dessert we want, but we know we should not have. We find ourselves in an emotional battle with a piece of cake or a slice of pie! I wrote this a few years ago for a friend who struggled with this once and, just as she was about to give in to her temptation, she realized she was too late. Happy Friday everyone!

Lemon Cake Seduction!

Oh luscious yellow lemon cake
I fear that I was wrong,
I should have had you when I could
Inside me, you belong!

I looked at you and wanted you
The urge was quite unreal,
But now I’ll never know your taste
My lips you will not feel!

Each hour that you called my name
I turned and looked away,
I knew that if I got too close
Your smell would make me stay!

Temptation was about to win
My lust for you was bold,
But just as I was giving in
Your sweetness turned to mold!

Special Children, Special Dads!

To be the parent of a special needs child is no easy task. They deal with stresses and complications that most of us will never face. This is for all the dads out there who, no matter what, make sure that their special child has an amazing life! God bless you for all that you do!

father-daughter-1476167_640

Dear Daddy

I need for you to know some things
About the life we share,
My special needs are always met
Because of how you care!

I know how very hard you work
To make my life just right,
And everything you do for me
Will make my future bright!

Some days you must be overwhelmed
By bills and doctor stuff,
And since I came into your life
At times, things can be tough!

A lot of men would not step up
And do all that you do,
So this is why I have to say
“Oh daddy, I love you!”

I’m not the kid you dreamed about
When mom told you I’d be,
But now you know how blessed you are
God gave you special me!

You see, He only picks the best
To help Him here on earth,
And He chose you to be my dad
Because you’d know my worth!

It’s true that I have special needs
That might get in my way,
I worry not, because I know
You’ll clear my path each day!

So daddy I want you to know
You are my shining star,
I’ll be all that I dream to be
Because of who you are!

Always Ask!

Bullies are everywhere, and they are hurting our children. Lives are being lost because of physical and/or emotional abuse. It is hard not to hate a bully. However, we must try to remember that there is a reason why a child would act out in such mean and vindictive ways! What is going on in their young life that makes them want to hurt others? The only way to get an answer is to ask. Remember, they are children, too. We must assume that at one time, they were innocent and fun loving kids. We need to find out what went wrong and, if possible, we need to get them help! All children deserve a chance at happiness and a bully, for whatever reason, is truly unhappy. Why?

question-mark-2123969_640

Please Ask!

I know I push the kids around
And make them want to cry,
Instead of getting mad at me
Why don’t you find out why?

It is not normal to do this
Behavior every day,
But I’m not sure how I should act
This is my only way!

I was not born to be this mean
It is a skill I learned,
For every day of my short life
It’s punishment I earned!

My parents seem to not want me
I just get in their way,
To make sure that I know this fact
They hit me every day!

At first I tried to do things right
And be the best I could,
But soon I learned that I was bad
They told me I’m no good!

So now I just accepted that
This is how life will be,
Inside I feel it’s now my job
To repeat history!

Each day I go to school quite mad
And pick a kid or two,
The ones who look like they deserve
To suffer like I do!

Again, I have to ask you this
Before I make them die,
Instead of getting mad at me
Why don’t you find out why?

All Dogs & Cats Go To Heaven!

When you are ready to add a fur-child to your family, please adopt one. There is nothing better than rescuing an animal in need. Remember, adoption is love, and love is a lifelong commitment! Do not be the reason why a cat or dog needs to be rescued!

Stop The Rain

It’s raining cats and dogs outside
At times this seems so true,
So many little ones run scared
Is it because of you?

Some folks decide to get a pup
They think they’re cute and fun,
But soon they have a grown up dog
Who needs a place to run!

Their yard might not be big enough
So they turn dog away,
He now lives on the lonely streets
Quite scared to be a stray!

The little kitten in the store
Looked cute enough to buy,
They did not realize at that time
That little kittens cry!

Instead of taking kitty back
They simply let her go,
She’s now confused and all alone
Not sure who’s friend or foe!

It’s great to have a puppy dog
Or kitten fill your heart,
But they need us to care for them
So we must do our part!

Be really sure you know how much
A pet will need your care,
And then be sure your heart is filled
With extra love to share!

Too many pets get tossed away
Cause people have no clue,
It’s raining cats and dogs outside
Too bad this is so true!

My Rescue Hero!

I wrote this two years ago when I was rescued by this girl. She has taught me many things, and she has made me a better person. I am not sure why I was so blessed to have her come into my life, but I am very thankful. Happy Anniversary Bonnie! Thank you God! I will cherish this gift forever!

2 (2)

Bonnie’s Way!

Some weeks ago I helped to find
A puppy that was lost,
We vowed to stay and search for her
Not stop at any cost!

Some weeks ago we found this girl
So silent on the ground,
Her mind was wracked with fear and pain
She could not make a sound!

Some weeks ago I took her in
To keep her for one night,
But now I will not let her go
Until she has no fright!

Some weeks ago I watched this pup
Befriend my motley crew,
They seemed to sense the fear in her
And knew just what to do!

Some weeks ago I was amazed
How my dogs took her in,
They treated her with love and warmth
Her healing could begin!

Some weeks ago I watched her fear
Grow less and less each day,
She has to do things very slow
We do it Bonnie’s way!

Some weeks ago I understood
How people let her down,
A bait dog was to be her fate
In sorrow, she would drown!

Some weeks ago this special pup
Allowed me in her heart,
She put aside her doubt and fear
To make a brand new start!

So here we are, some weeks have passed
I’m blessed to tell you this,
My heart is filled with so much joy
I got a Bonnie Kiss!

This may not seem like very much
But I think it’s the best,
This pup has taught me many things
Can’t wait to learn the rest!

Present Or Not, You Are Guilty!

At the end of a school day, some children go home and play. Unfortunately, others go home and make life-ending decisions. When a child chooses to die because they are being bullied, it is bullycide. The bully does not always have to be present to be guilty of this crime. The pain of being bullied lingers on, and for some, it becomes too much to bear. If you choose to hurt someone with your words, or with your actions, keep in mind that little by little, you just might be killing them!bully-655660_640

Because Of You!

The little girl you brought to tears
Because she is obese,
Went home and hung herself tonight
You helped her life to cease!

The boy you picked on during lunch
Did not know what to do,
So he left school to end it all
He died because of you!

The kid you beat up just last week
Because you don’t like gay,
Popped all the pills that he could find
You took his life away!

The child that lived up the street
Went home and cut his wrist,
He could not face another week
Of bruises from your fist!

The teen you bullied yesterday
Because she’s in a chair,
Will lay to rest on Saturday
You made her life unfair!

How many kids will have to die
Because of all your mean?
No matter what, you killed them all
With crimes that were not seen!

You probably will not be charged
For all your bully times,
But in the end, you’ll have to pay
For He knows of your crimes!

So bully, please do think of this
The next time that you fight,
The kids you hurt in school today
Might end their lives tonight!

Though you’re not with them when they die
This fact is still quite true,
The kids you choose as bully bait
Might die because of you!

Bullies Kill!

The new school year is upon us. Unfortunately, for some children, it brings nothing but fear and shame. They know that they will, once again, have to deal with being bullied. We need to be on high alert and make sure that our children are safe! Please, if you suspect that your child is being bullied, or that your child is a bully, do something about it! They need our help! This is the only way to put an end to bullycide!

My Last Goodbye

Today I had to say goodbye
And close his casket door,
His bully got the best of him
And he could take no more!

He really tried to stay around
And make it through this year,
But every day was just the same
He tired of the fear!

My child was a special kid
Who had so much to give,
He would have helped to make the world
A better place to live!

I hope his bully feels the pain
That now lives in my soul,
If murder was his game of choice
Then he has reached his goal!

I hope he knows just what he did
And how he took a life,
I hope he knows his words were cruel
And acted like a knife!

I know he was not present when
My child’s life was done,
But still, he’s guilty just the same
As if he shot the gun!

On earth he’ll get away with this
It’s fact, most bullies do,
But in the end he’ll have to pay
Because He knows what’s true!

I’m bitter now and full of grief
But for this boy I’ll pray,
“Dear God please make his meanness end
So more don’t come your way!”

Special Children!

Children with disabilities are a special gift. They have a love to share like no other! If we are open with our minds and our hearts, we can learn so much from them. God always knows what He is doing. We just have to remember that!

baby-428395_640

My Blessing

The first time I saw your blue eyes
I said a prayer of hope,
With all your disabilities
I needed strength to cope!

I asked God why you were this way
So different from the rest,
I just can’t figure out why me
Is this some kind of test?

But then they put you in my arms
I held you to my heart,
At once I knew I was complete
You were my missing part!

God sent me you to fill my life
With love I never knew,
This endless love would now be mine
Because of special you!

Oh yes, our struggles will be great
We’ll shed so many tears,
But crying sometimes helps our souls
To cleanse away our fears!

I know we’ll get through all of this
And help the world to see,
The dis does not apply to you
Your pure ability!

So now I’ll say a second prayer
To thank Him for your birth,
I’m humbled He chose me to share
His Angel here on earth!

Stay Strong!

A brand new school year is about to start, and while this is exciting for some, it brings nothing but fear to others. To those being bullied, stay strong! You have the power to not let anyone take you down. If you need help, seek it out. Start strong in the beginning, and stay strong throughout the year. It might not be easy at first, but with time, the bully will get the message that you are no longer bully bait. You are a force to be reckoned with! Stay strong, stay kind, and never give up!

As This Day Ends

As this day starts, I’ll hear your voice
And all the mean you say,
I’ll try to hide, but won’t succeed
You find me every day!

Your inner radar seeks me out
To shred me to my core,
You don’t give up until you feel
You’ve knocked me to the floor!

You have a passion for my tears
The more I cry, you cheer,
You seem to get an ego boost
From all my sad and fear!

It’s time for me to clue you in
On this one simple fact,
I’ve learned to love the me I am
No matter how you act!

Your words no longer cause me fear
My sad from you is dead,
I’ve learned to stand up for myself
My strength, you should now dread!

You’re just one voice who speaks quite loud
With words that are untrue,
I will no longer let my worth
Drop down because of you!

A bully has to get his strength
From other people’s fear,
But give it up, I’m fighting back
This is a brand new year!

No matter what you say to me
I’ll stand up tall and straight,
I’m good, and strong, and full of life
No longer bully bait!

It took some time for me to see
How small you really are,
In life I’ll be a great success
But you will not go far!

As this day ends, I’ll walk away
And leave you far behind,
No matter what you do to me
You can’t control my mind!
