My unsolicited advice to beginning bloggers

This is Life Experiment Blog!

lifexperimentblog

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by to scan my unsolicited advice for beginning bloggers post! Now, I am well aware that this post is a bit of a risk. I am not a professional blogger, and I absolutely do not claim to have a plethora of knowledge on the subject. I definitely don’t want to come across as saying ‘blog like me’. The reason I felt compelled to write this post (and am a bit nervous as to how this will be perceived) is that, well, honestly, I’m big on  etiquette. As in – saying ‘Please’, ‘Thank you’, ‘May I’ and telling someone when they have something in their teeth. I’ve spent a lot of time cringing at posts with something in their teeth. Although I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there who cringe at some of my posts with the same vigor.

This is Advocate For Mental Illnesses!!

Advocate for Mental and Invisible Illnesses

I am sitting here thinking about family. Mine are a comfort and they’re there for me and all my issues. I think they realize now what is going to be like from now on, but they will be there.

Here is my dad with me and my two daughters. On the left is the nurse. Both have 2 children. I don’t have new pictures of the kids and besides they really don’t like the children on social media too much.

Ann and Catherine

My daughter Catherine turned seventeen yesterday.

My daughter My daughter

Catherine is smart and very funny, disciplined in her studies, and she is kind. Last year, when I really wondered whether I would survive the cancer, I felt calm when I thought about Catherine. I knew she was on “her path.” And that even without me, she would be fine.

Catherine is my best. The best. Nothing I have done with my fifty years compares. To reach this point fills me with a deep sense of calm and well-being.

I have been an unlikely mother. I often think of Kate Chopin’s Awakening:

“The mother-women seemed to prevail that summer at Grand Isle. It was easy to know them, fluttering about with extended, protecting wings when any harm, real or imaginary, threatened their precious brood. They were women who idolized their children, worshiped their husbands, and esteemed it a holy privilege to efface…

Plug Into What Matters

I love this video on In the Arena!

In the Arena

I’m not much of an artist, but allow me to try and paint a picture here for you. The courtyard of the high school where I teach or probably any high school for that matter may fit this description…

-Ketchup packets strewn about on the ground that some teen thought would be funny to stomp on all the while engaging in flip the bottle contest with pals.


-A table full of girls turning their backs to a couple of boys who like sloths slowly make their way over, move in with a sly grin, throw out a couple of jokes and boom-score a number!

-Laughter, smiles, teens vigorously trying to type their essay before the next class.

-Group of boys rough housing it on the lawn, tormenting the young bucks on the team with a few slams to the ground and a lunch monitor giving a slight warning to knock…

My World….

This is Who’s My Favorite Today?!!

Who's My Favorite Today?

As I put Kate to bed tonight, we were snuggling and I was telling her I loved her like I do every night.  Then I said:

Me: You are my world.

Kate: I know. (Then she smiled and closed her eyes)

I am glad that she feels confident and secure in knowing that she is loved.  It’s hard to know if children really know what love means.  We have told them that we love them since the day they were born – before even.  But what do they think, when we say those words?

At 3 years old, I think Kate knows a little about it.  She knows that we say it to each other, especially when we want to express how much we like someone or like being around them.  But what does she truly know about love?  What does she think it means versus “like?”

But…….. I am…
