The 1st Annual End of the School Year Social

26 Jun

When I thought about children getting together and having a good time, the first thought was parties and gift exchange.

Since it is the end of this school year I thought it would be nice for them to get together on the terms of enjoying each other’s company. Their good time would revolve around them interacting with each other. In games of all sorts, outdoor activities, art and yes conversation! Kids have a lot to talk about.

It was great to see the mothers I know including myself together and celebrating the completion of not only a successful school year but a safe one. In knowing the impact violence has had on our youth in and out of schools. We are grateful.

The overall outcome was nice and kids in different age groups enjoyed themselves.
I hope to continue this event every year.

Let’s take it one year at a time!

Have a safe and blessed summer vacation!

With Love,
Veronica

At the Playground

18 Jun

At the Playground

When I can and I’m at the playground with my son I get on the swings and go as high as I can, to have fun too. Sometimes we race and other times we just swing side by side.

Don’t be afraid to go for a swing or slide down the sliding boards if you are at the playground with your children. When you are mother, you get to play longer.

Just go ahead and do it!

From The Desk Of….

17 Jun

My writing area has to be a space that is creative, colorful and supplied with the things I use to create a space that inspires me to write.

Some of my favorite books, favorite color post it notes, pens, magazines and of course collections of work I’ve already created. Not to mention a trusted desk lamp, for those late night writing sessions.

The best advice to give in creating a writing environment that helps with productivity, is to make your space matching to your personality. And one that caters to your own unique needs as a writer.

Try a few different settings until something fits!

That always works for me!

POETRY FOR LOVE

14 Jun

A POETRY PIECE WRITTEN FOR LOVE
By Veronica M. Benson

THE VERY FIRST TIME WE MADE LOVE
WAS A DREAM COME TRUE
MANY MEMORIES, MOMENTS AND YEARS
AHEAD OF US
WE WERE ALREADY WITH LOVE
EVERY TOUCH FEELS LIKE THE SAME TOUCH
WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER IN YEARS
I KNEW YOU WOULDNT COME INTO MY LIFE AND LEAVE
THERE WAS A MYSTERY IN YOUR EYES THAT TOLD ME
HAVING YOU NOW IS A WONDERFUL, A BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE
WE MAKE LOVE OVER AND OVER EVERYTIME YOU CROSS MY MIND
THE WAY YOUR HANDS CARESS MY BODY AND HOLD ME CLOSE TO HEAR RESPONSES FROM YOUR HEART,
HOW WE’VE COME TO BE; LIFE, TIMING, LOVE IS TRULY AN ART
YOU’RE A PIECE OF ME
A PIECE OF MY MASTERPIECE
IN THE MIDST OF THE HEAVIEST STORM IN MY LIFE
YOU BROUGHT PEACE TO ME

I ALMOST LOOKED PASSED WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN FRONT OF MY FACE,

TO SEE, LIKE FLOWERS BLOOM, DREAMS CAN COME TRUE IN A DARK AND UNUSUAL PLACE*

*For U*

Victory

13 Jun

To remember is of significant value to accomplishing anything. If you’ve done it before you can do it again.

This is a photo of a medallion I received from running my first marathon. Which was a 25K. That’s a lot of marathon for a first time. I had been running and working out months before it so I felt I could do it. It was hard work. But I completed it. Under trying and difficult circumstances.

Which may be the case for achieving important goals in life overall.

Don’t let your memories be overtaken by regret & failures. One victory cancels out many failures.

Also don’t let people water down your struggle to get to the victory if they weren’t there with you. How do they know?

Failing says you can keep going until you get it.

Victory says you’ve got it.

Trying is better than not trying.

With Love,

WHAT WE DO!

12 Jun

My son and myself. We recently had a bike riding adventure on a bike with a tag along. I couldn’t go forward without looking back at him every chance I could. We got a lot of exercise this day. Walking, riding and playing. We stopped for snacks and even to read at the library. Since he was a baby I wanted to take him bike riding on one of those baby seats that sits behind the rider. He knew that I was guiding us, so it was safe to look around at everything else going on. This was a treat for me too. I love to hear how he tells me he did all the pedaling while I just sat there. Early that day I was teaching him how to ride his bike. And he did well. He catches on fast. I’m so proud of my son. For being smart and strong, but simply for being Caleb.

When we’re hanging around the house we play games like tic tac toe, hang man or board games. We watch movies and he shows me what he learned in Karate. Its a lot of little things that add up to be much more.
