it's been raining...

posted on: 11.17.2012

And, I've been thinking...

I don't think, you can know a thing, you know, truly know it, until it's yours to live and feel your way through.  I've been feeling an awful lot lately.  I guess, even if that feeling can be a bit much sometimes, well... I suppose, I'm still somehow grateful for the knowing that follows.  

I do think, when I look up at that cloudy Hawaiian sky, and see it, exhausted from "holding it all together", let itself fall in wet messy pieces back to the earth, well... I think then, that maybe, just maybe, I'm not so very much alone.

And then there's this perfect little thought inspiring diddy.

I'm looking forward to a sort of feeling my way through the weekend ahead.  Sometimes just the very nature of being a grown up mommy means I don't often have to feel so very much, there's just so much busyness involved with the day to day business of being a big someone to little someones.

Most days I'm grateful for the distraction; for the immediacy of two boys and the big needs of their little lives. Most.

Happy Weekend.

live sweet, 


You can enter this week's giveaway here.

Join An Aloha Affair here.

As the daughter of a Peace Corps volunteer,
I do believe, I was raised in this club here.
I'm looking forward to renewing my membership soon.

Here in lies my problem, Charlie.
Turns out I've just got way too much in common
with the average butt.

And, when all else fails. 
Well, you could just quit a job you don't actually have.

If you're on O`ahu come find me at the downtown Makahiki, Saturday.  We're closing down a whole street and replacing the cars with aloha filled people.
It should be sweet.


  1. I DO think that you're one of the finest poets I know. LOVE reading your posts ...

    1. Michelle you and your little light are the very sweetest. Thank you for writing these lines right along with me. cheers.

  4. Great inspiration for rainy days and for not so rainy! I agree with you! No job is as big as the one of a good mother!!

  5. What a beautiful post. I'm usually appreciative of the distraction my daughter brings me as well. Kids just make things better, you know?

    Found you from the blog hop. Newest follower, girl!

    Swing by if you can!


  6. I loved this post, what gorgeous words. So true yet rarely spoken. I agree, my children are a welcome distraction. xx

  7. My kids are often a distraction, but it's rare for me to remember that those distractions are often a blessing in disguise.

  8. I love how poetically you describe your world!! So beautiful:).

  10. Hurrah, that's what I was exploring for, what a data! present here at this webpage, thanks admin of this website.
    Feel free to surf my blog post

  11. I think that what you posted was actually very reasonable.

    But, think on this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I ain't saying your content isn't good., however what if you added a title that makes people desire more?
    I mean "it's been raining..." is a little plain.
    You might glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you've written.
    Just my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.

  12. I constantly emailed this blog post page to all my contacts, for the reason that if like to read it after that my friends will too.
    Look into my web blog ;

  13. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  14. My brother recommended I might like this website. He was entirely right.

    This post actually made my day. You cann't imagine simply how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

  15. Unquestionably consider that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest factor to bear in mind
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as folks think about issues that they plainly do not recognise about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing without having side-effects
    , other people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thank you

  16. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
