Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Miss Independent Crushed But Not Tapped Out - 4Ms #Music

The emotional, spiritual and relationship struggle is tough over here. My soul is waning. My smile has left and my spirit is crushed.
The people who are supposed to care are dismissive and seem cold. But such is life.
I hope that I will continue in God's foundation and not be crushed to dust.

I do not wish to be a continued 'made to feel like a burden' on anyone.  I am feeling too paralyzed. I need to find a job, go back to school. Get my feet under me.

But I keep putting one foot in front of the other.

The kids had soccer on Saturday. D won his game. V lost her game. Her team is still learning and usually the kids can bounce back easy from loss if the parents don't take it too hard.


I'm no longer coach. Our team gained a coach because another team didn't have enough players. We also gain the four players they had and now we are 12 and the league just need 9v9. Now we can have players rest up during the game.

Baby girl is still in choir.

And life marches on.

Welcome to Monday. At least I'll get to enjoy music. And the THEME: Elvis Tunes

Welcome to today's music.  Five years and going strong!  I hope Monday find you with a smile and music to begin your week with light steps. 
I'm always coming to visit everyone on the linky so don't worry if I'm a bit late!

  1. Very nice saying and nice song.

  2. That was beautiful, Colette.

  3. My grandson plays soccer too. Oh don't get me wrong he likes baseball etc like other boys and his cousins, but he's a bit awkward if you know what I mean. For one he's chubby & his speech is more child like or should I say babyish (thanks to his mother... I warned her, but I'm only the grandmother/mother what do I know right? haha)... it turned out though he's a very good soccer player and he loves it... so all is well! hugs Loved the Miss Independent video. Thanks for the introduction. Jailhouse Rock... well as I told you before my youngest son is singing that song now... :( Oh well, as they say wrong or right.... etc. Love ya girl! hugs and hugs for my babies too...

  4. Good choice for this week!
