     The days flew by for us, and I have to admit it was much better spending my time with David than it was at work. Most of the time I stayed the night at my “suite” at his home, rather than the long drive home. Who am I kidding! It wasn’t the drive home that kept me there.

     With “The Event of the Century” under control, and with me confident that our guests would be well taken care of there was a little more time to relax and just enjoy the approaching winter. There was also the Thanksgiving feast to prepare for. David’s mother would be coming up from Texas to prepare the meal. This was her tradition and I didn’t mind one bit not having that to contend with.

     Every morning we would take his two dogs out running, and usually go to the stables down the hill at the back of the house. He kept a black stallion named Satan in there, and we would let Satan out to walk, and later run. Sometimes David rode him. I would watch and my breath would catch in my throat. What a beautiful site it was.

     As Thanksgiving neared, his family began to arrive and the house became full of sounds. The kitchen more often than not was the meeting place in their morning, and everyone would discuss (more…)

The taste of blood was on my lips,

Nothing new for me.

I let it run and drip away,

At least something here was free.

The screams and pain were nothing new,

I’ve tried to hide the truth.

But others are smart and know too much,

What more (more…)

HER GIFT

Dmitri

From her concealment, I take her measure:

Compliant one she is—I bind her hands.

Her only purpose becomes my pleasure;

willing, waiting, she thrives on my commands.

Held in respect as ought this awesome gift,

I touch her cheek as in her eyes I see

A CRY FOR GOODNESS

Jane Lipsius Driver

 

 

If I could bend to Love,
Though now uncertain of my fate,
Eternally cursing my freedom,
Would you afterward not veil me in dishonor?

To stand in the brightness
And give evidence of your loving
This veil keeps beyond my reach
A reverence bestowed upon another.

My soul stands l (more…)

oh so many times.

Love and I have been quite intimate,

THE SWEETNESS LASTS A LIFETIME!!! An Adoption Reunion Story

THE SWEETNESS LASTS A LIFETIME!!!

AN ADOPTION REUNION STORY

Fran

     1964, a warm June day when my daughter began life. Placed in my arms, the sweet face, dark hair, such tiny feet and hands. All five pounds of not much of anything.
But such an impact on my life!
     As I sat there after she was taken to the nursery, I realized that her life was to begin anew, with someone else to love her, care for, and raise her to adulthood. Not my choice, but at age seventeen, with no support, and no way to provide a home, I knew, deep in my heart that she needed (more…)
