  1. When You Need Someone "Just In Case"

    by , 02-05-2015 at 03:30 AM
    Early morning sunrise streams in from behind cracked curtains and I see him.

    I see him walk out in the snow to the shed, his jacket too thin for the bitter cold, his worn boots unlaced where underneath his heels broke free, and his socks were worn holey.

    He hadn't eaten breakfast.

    He didn't make his lunch.

    I knew better than to ask if he had brushed his teeth because I already knew the answer. After ten years you know the answer.
  2. Looking for Love

    Years ago when I was in middle school I longed for love. Not the average everyday middle school crushes but love. I was searching for it, desperately seeking for what seemed to missing. This search resulted in a variety of troubled situations that I found myself in.The song lyrics are flooding my brain, "Looking for love in all the wrong places".

    He was sitting in a wheelchair, people-watching from the front corner of the grocery store’s entry way. I was thinking only of the tasks ahead of me in the afternoon…getting Kailey and the groceries into the car, remembering when to pick up the boys from their after-school activities, getting dinner ready…little to-do items raced their relay-races around my brain.

    I sit in the hallway outside of my daughter’s room. It is late and the
    floor uncomfortable, but the little nightlight that she holds is
    moving, so I know her eyes are still on me. When her room is dark, she
    cannot stay still long enough to fall asleep unless she knows I am
