Candid Reflections

I am… a night owl.

I want… to be an early bird.

I have… a blister on my heel from dancing last night.

I keep… a journal to each of my children.

I wish I could… speak eloquently.

I hate… regrets.

I fear… being misunderstood.

I hear… the ticking of the clock on the wall, beside me.

I don’t think… it was ever a good thing to put a 2″ high heel on a tennis shoe, who wore those anyway?

I regret… not speaking my mind.

I love… sweaters in autumn time, kisses on my forehead, afternoon strolls, sitting by firelight.

I am not… one to follow trends.

I dance… with my kids when the music is turned up loud.

I sing… to my babies every night.

I never… turn down dessert.

I rarely… watch TV.

I cry when I watch… lovers saying goodbye at the airport.

I am not always… the best at remembering the punch line, so I seldom tell jokes.

I hate that… there is not a self-cleaning option on my toilet like there is on my oven.

I need… to start an on-going list of things I’m thankful for.

I should…get off this computer and start preparing for our afternoon guests.


  1. I think… are a beautiful woman.

    Inside and out.
