I feel a bit like, “When Momma Goes to School” could be the title of a child’s story book complete with all the mishaps that ensue.

I realized recently after a few people asked me about my blog that months had gone by.  It isn’t because I haven’t had anything to say, but right now there are days that I barely get dinner made.  But the good news is that it is only a short amount of time.  In December (2017), I will complete the course work to become a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant.   I am very excited about this and very thankful that God has opened the doors that make it possible.  I’ve worked toward it, slowly, for many years, in between big moves and babies.

I hope that you will continue to check back in periodically, and rest assure that come January I will be writing again,even if time restraints keep me from it until then.  For now, I hope you will enjoy this little poem about going back to school.


“When Momma Goes to School”

When Momma goes to school

things get a little crazy

and even though its true

Its not because she’s lazy


The laundry’s piled high

The car is out of gas

The dinners second rate

But I wouldn’t give her sass

The floor, it needs a moppin

The rooms a petri dish

The kids they need a bath

But instead they get a swish


When Momma goes to school

There’re dishes in the sink

The dog is looking hungry

and the gecko needs a drink.

One day things will be quiet

And Momma will be home

And everything she worked for

Will be her very own

Perhaps her kids will see it

And call her what she is

A blessed and learned woman

With dreams and also kids

Balance is required

And sacrifice is made

But in the end its worth

All the price she’s paid

Her kids, they know she loves them

Her husband knows the same

The love they have between them

Always will remain.

She’s tired in her body

And tired in her brain,

Knowing that the ends in sight

Is all that keeps her sane

It’s not about right now

But the thing she keeps in mind

Are dreams of what can be

and possibilities still un-mined
