A Post Secret share from my BFF. I love my friends. They’re awesome.
I’ve noticed that in the past week I’ve had a few posts that had an unusually large amount of traffic.
This of course has me scratchin my noggin. I started this blog in January and under a pseudonym for privacy purposes.
Im not a great writer and don’t exactly have a well organized blog so the traffic explosion has made me a curious lil kitten.
If you don’t mind sharing, i would love to know who my visitors are.
I would love it if anyone who wishes to share any info about yourself, name, location in the universe, what brought you to my site, and of course…what you think of the site.
No pressure, you can say as much as you like or nothing at all. Im just curious about the individuals that are only represented by some numbers on my site stats page.
I’d love to get some feedback from my sites patrons.
All comments are welcome and very much appreciated.
Thank you kindly,
Mother’s have fought the same battles with their teenagers. This particular battle is one that I’m losing, and proudly so. I love my children’s desire to express their individuality.

Presidential Proclamation — National Child Abuse Prevention Month
Our children are our most valuable resource, and they need our support to thrive and grow into healthy, productive adults. During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we renew our unwavering commitment to protecting children and responding to child abuse, promoting healthy families, and building a brighter future for all Americans.
Every child deserves a nurturing family and a safe environment, free from fear, abuse, and neglect. Tragically, sexual, emotional, and physical abuse threaten too many children every day in communities across our Nation. Parents, guardians, relatives, and neighbors all share a responsibility to prevent these devastating crimes, and our government plays a critical role as well.
My Administration is committed to helping future generations succeed. We are focused on engaging parents in their children’s early learning and development, ensuring the safety and well-being of all families, and creating opportunities for all Americans. We are also partnering with Federal, State, and local agencies to better coordinate early childhood services and improve the lives of young children and their families.
Together, we can ensure that every child grows up in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment, free from abuse and neglect. I encourage all Americans to visit: www.ChildWelfare.gov/Preventing to learn what they can do to stop child abuse in their communities.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim April 2010 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month. I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities that help prevent child abuse and provide for children’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand ten, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth.

I’ve never read something so beautifully calming. I love your observations. xoxo
Yesterday, I spent my afternoon enjoying beautiful weather and good wine with my best friends. There is nothing like good conversation with my favorite people. With everyone’s busy schedules, these times have become few and far between. I have learned to thoroughly appreciate a few hours with my girls. I observed things a little deeper today, and noticed little things that make us more than friends. We are more like family; sisters. As M walked into my kitchen, she went straight to the cabinet where the wineglasses are kept, pulled out 3, one specifically was the one she knew I preferred. This seemingly automatic gesture is something most people would overlook. Today, I saw deep meaning in it. H settled down at the dining room table, quickly becoming engrossed in a jigsaw puzzle my family has been working on, another indicator of how relaxed we all are together. The fact that we all feel totally comfortable with each other calling down the random misbehaving child, regardless of whom the child belongs to, was another thing. Speaking of the children, they all feel equally at home in any of our houses. That always puts a smile on my face. The topic of conversation ranged from my sister’s recent cancer diagnosis to M’s boyfriend moving in (and how intensely “in like” they are) to H’s many social observations and experiments that occur during her daily shifts at a bar and grill. The talk was varied greatly from one moment to the next. During the 4 or 5 hours they were here, we shared laughter, tears, shock, and God knows what else. It was good stuff. These girls are my constant confidantes, my forever friends. When I feel all alone, I know they are the ones who will keep me company while I’m going through whatever it is bringing me down, and likewise I’m there with them when they need me. I’m at a point in my life where these friendships are sometimes all I have tethering me to reality. I’m so blessed to have them.
