Anniversaries

Posted 03-18-2011 at 10:39 AM by Mumof2

When I was around 12 or so My Father told me "one day Baby,a man will come along and break your heart".This was a direct reaction from my older sister's seperation and adventual divorce.Then he added like every Father Would,Me and your Brothers will break his knee caps.Breaking of the knees is a recurring theme in Boston,its better then cement shoes I guess.
My Father's "Anniversary" is coming up.10 years he'll be gone for.It's also my Father In Laws Birthday.Yes,You heard right.It's a weird thing.Happy Birthday Mr.Marco! I miss you Daddy.In some way I can see my Father giggling about it.not that he was mean,just a big jokester.Kinda like never forget me.like I could.Most of my blogs are about my dad,he was unique.I know everyone is,but unlike my friends fathers my dad stood out.He never went beyond the 5th grade,yet could come up with an invention in no time.needed a math problem? no problem for him he was a human calculator,spelling problems? goto him.He was...

Glory Days..

Posted 03-16-2011 at 07:14 AM by gabulldawg

First of all,this is coming from an uber medicated,fever ridden individual with ramblings going on my head constantly,just keep that in mind.

I often have dreams of being back in high school during my senior year glory days, and it is like I am still hanging around the same people and same situations and I even still look 17. Those were the days of sneaking out and staying up all night,or going to the beach for the weekend,no worries at all.All I worried about was myself and how I looked on the outside.
When I entered my early 20's I enlisted in the Military and for the first 3 years worried constantly I would fail and get kicked out,I always heard from old friends who would joke about me even serving and thinking I would not last,looking back it makes me very angry and I wonder if that later made me try even harder to succeed. I question constantly if I have taken the right path in everything I have done in the last 18 years since high school has ended. And I wonder...

Shedding Tears

Posted 03-15-2011 at 09:20 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)
Tags death, life, somber

It has been a while since I last posted on my blog, and with everything going on in the world and in life in general, I have some thoughts I would like to share.

It is hard to witness what is going on in Japan right now, they are broadcasting it on the news, will the nuclear power plant turn into the next Chernobyl? Three Mile Island? The search for survivors is always great to hear when they find one, but the loss of life is just horrific to hear about. The people over there are going through hell right now and you have jackasses like Gilbert Gottfried making insensitive jokes about their pain and suffering.

Death seems to be the prevalent topic at the moment for a lot of people, my wife went to the wake of her former high school basketball coach on Friday, while she was in line for the viewing, her friend received a text message stating that another former basketball coach, and really good family friend of hers had a heart attack and died that same day....

Wearing St. Nick's Shoes

Posted 03-15-2011 at 12:01 AM by jimmyolsen (Writing Christmas)

In the Santa Claus & the North Pole forum, Sanity Clause posed an excellent question. On the first day of March, Sanity asked, "What is Santa up to in March?"

The question drew several solid answers in the first few days.


But we all know the world has changed since then. That made me wonder, how does the man who embodies the spirit of Christmas deal with overwhelming sorrow?


Not so differently from us, I suspect.


I think it's when we're touched by love or joy or grief for our fellow man that we're most like Christ. And it is, after all, the love of Christ that St. Nick delivers to his fellow man.


As I said in the forum, I'm sure St. Nick has a well worn itinerary for March, and I'm sure that, this year, it doesn't apply.


I suspect he's strolling through the greenhouses, tending the trees, mulling over Christmases past, present and future, wondering about the nature of things.
