Temps in the 70’s, What?????

Posted on: August 15, 2013

I was walking to the store with my niece who was dressed very much like me with capris a tshirt and light sweater when she declared, “I am cold!”  I had to laugh at the irony of that in Mid August when we are typically sweltering with high humidity!

I also had to laugh at my hair after my crazy 6 am wake up and watching both my niece and friends 7 year old,,, I think by late afternoon my crazy day was beginning to show!  Okay the real truth is this was the last photo shot and I removed the sunglasses from the top of my head, leaving my frazzled hair as it was… but it really was a hard day with little sleep, so felt good to say it !

I was happy to be able to wear these bottoms as they had been too tight recently!  I have lost 3lbs in 3 days and the unreal part is that my monthly visitior arrived yesterday… Weight loss during this time had never happened with me before!!!!


Can you believe two photos in one post with no sunglasses!  

Dear Readers, recovering today from the shocking court system where a judge gets a case involving molestation just 9 minutes before court…A three year long case and the insanity continues as reunfication is ordered… For a child who just completed trauma therapy because the idea of reunification with her perpetrator father traumatized her…The insanity continues…. If the child is under 8 and too young to testify , they are commonly reunified with the offending parent… As someone who loves this child and has been on the frontlines and saw the changes in this child and knows the truth, that she was indeed molested, which has held up through all the counseling, with her story never changing…My heart is heavy.   

Sorry to post this but have been dealing with this insanity for 3 years…for a child who although not related by blood very much sees me as Auntie Tracey!  

And today, I have to grocery shop, bake and pack as we leave tomorrow for Nags Head!


I am grateful for my strong fatih and the fact that the courts have been able to post pone this for three years, giving her time to grow.

I am grateful that if she is retraumatized by the baby steps to reunification that it will hault and she will get therapy with a therapist she already knows and trusts. 

I am grateful that My friend is a strong , amazing mother!  

I am grateful for the power of prayer when life seems to not make sense.

I am grateful for my belief in Divine Order and hope in the not so far away future to be able to see the purpose of this situation.. I have high hopes for this as every thing in my life to this point has come into clear focus.

Your blue capris look fantastic and I like the no sunglasses 🙂 I’m sorry for what you and your loved ones are going through. It sounds like you can really use that vacation! Your faith is right on and I will pray for you and all involved in that situation.

Thank you so much, your kind words are priceless!
