True Colors

Not sure if that title truly will fit this post, but my niece absolutely loves that song and will sing it over and over again… and just the thought of that is uplifting my current mood.

A lot has transpired within the last 48 hours and I am having a really hard time wrapping my head around it all. I feel like I am doing all that I am supposed to but somehow I keep coming up short. I can’t tell you how much I beat myself up for even the smallest mistakes or slightest failures. Then there is always someone who feels the need to add to it.

There are too many days where I don’t know which way is up… or if I’ll ever get there. But I keep waking up each day reminding myself that each morning brings another chance to get things right. I can honestly say I don’t know the person I have become. Little by little I can see the better parts of me starting to shine through…

I can only hope that soon enough those I love will see my true colors.


A proud momma to Pedro, a gorgeous Cane Corso, American Staffordshire Terrier fur-baby. I've recently adopted little Oakley... a Great Pyrenees, German Shepherd, Pit mix puppy and little Oliver, an animated orange kitten. I was proudly raised in the middle of cornfields, barefoot, playing in the dirt. I have grown to appreciate all of God’s land, all that occupy it, and any way I can stay creative on it... including writing.
