    I couldn’t believe it. What had been a well planned getaway had turned into a nightmare. First i had not been able to sleep the night before my trip then I stopped for coffee and scalded my mouth and it blistered right away. Then I jumped on the free way only to fid an accident and then I got a flat tire. No way! I had just had them checked a few…[Read more]

    Take it all and combine it and see what you get. I’m not telling you what you’ll get. You have to see it for yourself. That’s part of the magic…that moment when you see it come together…magic. Be sure to […]

    The signs were all there, she just didn’t read them right. How could she have missed them? She should have known. In fact, she did. She had felt it in her bones, in her heart, and in her head. She just hadn’t […]

    On days like today, I really appreciate have a shelter over my head. I can’t imagine what it must be like for homeless people on good weather days, let alone on days like today with the temps low and the rain and […]

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, view 7 years, 9 months ago

    Sometimes, it all depends on who is looking. Things look one way when you view them from one person’s perspective and entirely different from another person’s. If only we could all remember that our way is not always entirely the right way or the only way. Others’ views are also valid.

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, sneaky 7 years, 9 months ago

    Molly is acting strangely. She used to not go anywhere near anyone. I would have to coax her to let me pet her but lately, there is something going on. She keeps rubbing up against me and won’t leave me alone. I think she’s being sneaky about something. I just don’t know what it is.

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, laughter 7 years, 10 months ago

    One of the things l look forward to during the holidays is a house full of laughter. That’s the best. I don’t care about the food or the gifts or anything else. My kids’ laughter all around me is like heaven. That’s what makes it all worthwhile. I am really looking forward to it this […]

    When I saw the baby emerge from my daughter’s womb, in the silence of the room, I had an epiphany. This is life. This is what it is all about.

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, relate 7 years, 11 months ago

    I know how she feels. She thinks she’s the only one. She thinks that no one knows what she is feeling; what she is going through. She’s not the only woman to have been cast aside. She’s not the only woman to have turned 50 and felt all alone. She’s not the only one that […]

    He said he had lived in a castle as a child but never elaborated. It wasn’t until it was too late that it was discovered what he had meant and where the castle was. If only he had told others about it, the secret may not have consumed him and he could have lived in […]

    I was hoping to go camping for the first time this past summer but it didn’t work out. I have never been so I had a friend that was going to go and scout out the place and see what we would need for overnight camping but she couldn’t go and with no scout, I […]

  • I don’t understand why some people will give their last dollar away to charity while some will take every last penny with them to their grave. I guess compassion is not a universal gift we are given when we’re born. I wish it were. Imagine our world if compassion lived in each one of us.

  • It takes a lot to camp out in a park, in the cold and wet, with people questioning your motives. Yeah, it takes great conviction. It’s about time Americans found that conviction and banned together to be heard! About time!

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, iron 7 years, 11 months ago

    I wish I hadn’t listened to her. I was doing her a favor. I bought an iron to take on our trip, for her. They didn’t allow irons. I didn’t know that. It was confiscated and I was the one that had to go through all the trouble to go get it before getting off […]

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, warned 7 years, 11 months ago

    She warned me that this would happen. My back is not 20 any more. It’s 55. It can’t take hours of running after an 18 month old. It can’t take getting him into and out of the car. It can’t take it. That’s all. No ifs and buts about it.

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, morality 7 years, 11 months ago

    I’ve always thought that one of the main reasons that this country is going downhill so quickly is the lack of morality in out citizens. From the gas station attendant to the highest politician, they all lack morality and that is our downfall.

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, edge 7 years, 11 months ago

    She sat on the edge of the cliff thinking about the past and knowing there was no future. Should she? Just as she thought she would, it began to rain and she quickly jumped up and ran for shelter. Not today. Maybe another day.

  • CorinaJoyC commented on the post, dense 7 years, 12 months ago

    He smiled pretty. He looked pretty. But when he opened his mouth, he was pretty dense. I walked away as quickly and politely as I could. He was just another pretty face. Who likes that? There were others who were so much more and so I went to seek one out. I knew I deserved […]

    I remember spirit rallies in high school. They were so much fun. No class. Lots of friends. We could sit with anyone we wanted, not just our class. I remember cheering and changing and just enjoying each rally. Those were the days…high school….!
