A Mechanic’s Life

mobile-mechanic-baltimore

It’s 85 degrees outside

But it feels more like 100 in here

The fans they give us are a joke

Is there somewhere cool to hide?

 

Ms. Jenkins’ is back for the third time in two weeks

Insisting she hears an awful noise

But there’s nothing wrong with her jeep

And the inside of it just wreaks

 

The last job I booked took three days to fix

But I will only get paid for half of that

Instead of relaxing when I clock out

My neighbor’s van just got added to the mix.

 

I’m good at what I do and I like my job

But I could leave the politics and drama behind

And sometimes it feels like my hard work isn’t appreciated

At least my wife doesn’t mind me coming home looking like a slob

 

I may complain about my long day

Dealing with things that didn’t go right

And just being exhausted with it all

But the truth is, I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

This is the career path I chose to pursue

It’s my life’s work and I take pride in it

Knowing your car works right gives me satisfaction 

Not for a moment do I regret what I chose to do.

 

My husband is a mechanic and this morning I thought about how much he does and how little he’s recognized for it all. I wanted to write this for him and all other mechanics out there. We thank you for all of your hard work, keeping our vehicles running and dealing with our insanity. We appreciate you.

Quoth My Bi-Polar, Nevermore

BipolarBehavior1

Upon this ledge, my soul stood staring

Tired of the cries of injustice blaring

Needing to quiet my thoughts before I lose my sanity

There’s too much greed, cruelty, and vanity

 

Darkness threatens to overtake me

Daily I fight the demons within for all to see

Some days I feel like letting them win

Perhaps it would be easier to just give in

 

Tango with the monsters inside my brain

Let them sing that haunting refrain

At least I’d always have someone to talk to

The needs of the one outweigh the needs of the few

 

But somehow I find strength within

Each day, I let that fight inside me begin

He helps me get through each day

He’s with me always, every step of the way

An Old Lullaby With a twist

249a727a7e1c6038492d92e2639b9b1b

I never cared much for nursery rhymes or lullabies that have sad or disturbing messages. I changed the words to Rock-a-Bye Baby this morning.

Rock a by baby, in your cradle

When Mom sings, you fall asleep

When the dawn breaks, the sun will rise

And then my baby, you’ll open your eyes.

Blind to the Beauty Within

purple butterfly

She saw the beauty in everything around her

Even in the places where many couldn’t

In a rotted tree, a wounded bird, and even in death

She had this ability to see the good in all around her

And yet she couldn’t recognize it in herself.

800, You All Take My Breath Away!

800

As of this morning, I was notified that my blog now has 800 subscribers! I feel like I was just posting about reaching the 700 mark. Wow! Once again, thank you for your never ending love and support! I love you guys and gals! Thanks for the joy you bring into my life and for making me feel loved. Thank you for inspiring me and for letting me inspire you!

 

A community made up of many from all over the world

Here to share thoughts, feelings, ideas, and pieces of who we are

Hoping to touch other’s lives

Connecting a little more each day

One friendship at a time, our community grows

 

Four years ago, I took a chance

Opened up my heart to anyone willing to see me

Exposing my soul to anyone whose eyes are open

And trying to see inside your hearts

Crashing through cracks in the walls

 

Thank you for letting me in

And for accepting me as I am in return

For being who you are without reservation

No need to hide a single part of your soul

Know too that I will not hide from you

 

I look forward to continuing this journey with you

Virtual hand in hand, we inspire one another

Encouraging self discovery through each other’s life lessons

Give and take, happily the pauper and prince co-exist

Isn’t this the way the world should be?

 

 

Lazy Sunday

11

The morning started out busy

Chores galore for us all to do

In this heat, it was enough to make me dizzy

But now we’re able to relax

Such a good feeling, being able renew

 

Baseball, chatting, & just spending time together

I love having this time to spend with my family

We’re a silly flock that is of the same feather

And yet so different, such individuals that are unique

Thanks be to Him for this gift of true beauty

Definitions Change

fun

It’s 10:00 p.m. and I’m just about ready to go

My friends should be there by the time I arrive

It’s just a typical Wednesday night

The beer is 25 cents a glass, though I drink whiskey sours

Let’s dance until close, laughing and flirting the night away

 

It’s 7:30 a.m. and I’m finally going to sleep

I wake up at Noon and I’m slow to start my day

We often talk about changing how we live

But day after day, it’s the same routine

No responsibilities, so carefree and living la vida loca

 

Fast forward to today, many years later

My how life has changed

The time I used to go to bed is now the time I get up

My little girl needs to be changed and fed

It’s time for Disney, learning, and baby talk

 

We get invited to shows, parties, and other nightlife events

Most times, we decline and stay home

And most of those resounding no’s are said without regret

Some think we’ve lost our edge

Because we now prefer family nights over partying

 

But though we’ve gone from drinking on weeknights

To nightly walks with our baby and game nights with my 13 year old

That doesn’t mean we forgot how to have fun

It simply means that our definition of the word has changed

And truthfully, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
