For 2017 I chose Reconnect as my word of intention. I have to give myself a failing grade on that one. I never once got together with my old high school friend, I missed getting several birthday cards in the mail, I’m not even sure if I sent my grandmother a birthday card. Sigh 😦 I am going to attempt this again this year. No reason to give up because I’ve chosen a new focus for the new year.
In 2018 I am going to focus on Soft. It is a term that I come across a lot lately. Someone I follow on fb even teaches a course by that name. For me it is embracing my femininity. There is always a time and a place but I believe that we don’t always have to be “hard” to compete with a man. I think feminine qualities are needed in daily life for balance.
I decided on this word yesterday. Daddy was getting grumpy as the end of our vacation time is quickly approaching. I was pissed that he was getting that way and I wanted to go off on him. Fortunately I like to think before I speak and Soft popped into my head. So I took him by the hand and brought him in the bedroom and had him lay down with his head in my lap. I stroked his head and put another hand in his shirt so I could touch his skin. “I can’t do this for the next three days.” I said in a calm tone. We talked a little and it didn’t totally change his mood but it softened his energy.
It is easiest to embrace the soft parts of me with Daddy but I am curious to see how I can use it in other relationships.
Happy New Year and don’t forget…
From one of the coloring books Daddy got me. 😀
Text conversation that happened pre-Christmas.
D: “What do you think about a yoga trapeze?”
Me: “I think a sex swing would be put to better use.”
D: “I am being serious. I would like to decompress my spine. There are also leg stretching exercises.”
I WAS being serious. 😉 He sent photos of the trapeze and exercise poster that goes with it.
That night when I got home in addition to a new ceiling fan there was also a large eye hook in the ceiling. The trapeze had not been purchased yet.
A few days later this conversation took place in my room.
Kid2: “Yeah kid3 pointed that out.” (pointing to the hook)
me: “What is that?” (feigning shock)
Kid2: “Yeah we know it’s for your sex swing. Gross”
Daddy was a bit embarrassed when I replayed that conversation.
D: “Sex swing?! No it’s for a yoga trapeze.”
On Christmas day after gifts with the kids we retreated to the bedroom where I got to open naughty presents from Daddy. The big one was a sex swing. 😉
My project over the last few weeks.
We had the whole clan together for church, pizza and a movie. Why Him? was the feature and it was hilariously raunchy. Boyfriend said “Only this family”. 😂
The older 4 departed for festivities with the other sides and that meant the reading of ‘The Night Before Christmas was just the youngest, the dog and granddoggy.
One must roll with the changes and be blessed with the constants.
Merry Christmas ❤️
There will not be peace in our country when our leader promotes hatred. Let alone our world because someone must go first.
