Easter Sunday Thoughts in the Time of Covid-19

No matter your faith, Easter at its core is a day of new beginnings – a letting go of the past and opening yourself up to the possibilities to come.

We are living in trying times.

So many of us locally, nationwide, and globally have been impacted in one way or another. Today I celebrate life, not only mine but my family and friends. I am grateful for the memories that have been made up until this point and look forward to creating new ones in the near future.

Jay Long’s Timeless Chatter Between the Heart and Mind

Poetry, as it’s defined in the modern dictionary, is a literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm.

The definition is pretty accurate.

The written word when by itself is simple, and sometimes holds no meaning whatsoever, but when certain words are grouped together, it can be magical. The beauty of poetry is for every reader, the meaning may be completely different. Poetry, more so than other forms of writing, allows the reader to escape, to relate their own experiences to the words the writer has bled onto the page.

Making Memories Watching All the Marvel Movies in Order

I wanted to give a little background before I get into the true point of this post. When I first got married, my wife at the time, had three children. A son 13, and daughters 11 and 4. Since day one I treated them as my own. I too had been part of a household that experienced divorce. My mother’s second husband was a wonderful man who treated me as his own. And I soon was, as he adopted me when I was 7-years-old. So I knew what it was like. Unfortunately, my marriage didn’t last but that wasn’t the end of my relationship with my step-children. <—- That will be the only time I use the step reference throughout this post because they became my children, I lived for them and just because their mother and I split didn’t change that. I divorced her, not them.
