Muted like late Fall Colors

It’s not for wimps,

Taking a twelve year

Old, 90 lb husky

For a ride,

When he’s panicked

To go bye bye or

Prepping your mind

To move yourself and him,

After half a lifetime

To a southern state.

So many things happening

In a life which has had

So many things happen.

YES! I’ve lived!

Until late,

When I’ve been on hold

After so many years

Of being so bold!

On hold, stagnant.

Waiting…

I recall a woman,

Outspoken, hair flowing

As her head is thrown

Back laughing.

I know, my beloved

Husky and I

Will find her

On our journey.

She’s out there waiting

To be found.

Or perhaps,

she is my

Driving force

Behind our change.

Never lost,

Simply muted,

And rejuvenating,

While awaiting the

Universe to reveal

A pathway to

Our next adventure.

Silence

Silence can be golden,

So loud it’s deafening or

Heartbreakingly sad.

Silence, so peaceful or

Possibly frustrating,

How can such a simple

“S” word, make

One happy, sad or mad?

Only seven letters create

this powerfilled word,

Containing monumental

Emotional control.

Noise, most certainly is

Quietly seething

With intense jealousy!

To make your dreams come true,

๐ŸŽˆYOU have to work your butt off!

๐ŸŽˆYOU have to believe in yourself

๐ŸŽˆYOU need people who believe in you!

๐ŸŽˆTHEN you need to work 100 times as hard to keep that dream afloat and moving forward!

It all starts with a first step…

Like blog visits, the BEST part of my week. Hopping in to see whatโ€™s on the mind of my fellow blogging family !

SEEING the inspirational intertwined collage of ย colors of creativity, hopefulness, sometimes sadness, and horror. I also am witness to first steps, dreams and the beautiful eyes of wisdom!

Here are this week finds!

Momโ€™s America Has Forgotten

Happy Thursday!

Yes, today is K’s Blog recommendation day, I’m working on them. Stay tuned!

BUT FIRST!

In the last year, something I FEARED was true.

Has PROVED to be true!

THE FORGOTTEN MOMS.

That’s right.

WHO are they?

The majority seem to be woman in their 50s.

Educated, smart, witty and funny.

They have raised their children and are now experiencing empty nest syndrome.

In their 20s, 30s and 40s, they kicked ass and beat down the doors so that their daughters could have the same pay as their male co-workers.

Whether it be due to illness, businesses closing or?

They are struggling.

Suddenly, due to their age, they aren’t quick to be employable anymore. (Yup that’s illegal) but still true!

Because, they don’t have children at home nor have a drinking or drug problem…

They are not eligible for most state or federal programs

They can get, possibly, assistance (approximately 10%), in fuel and electric.

I know there ARE some financial programs to help with medical. ONE plus !

Their homes are ALMOST paid for, and they may drive a nice car.

OOPS! sorry, that’s too much value for any type of assistance!

They can get some groceries at the local food bank. TWO in the plus column!

They are too YOUNG, to touch their retirements without a large decrease in the monthly payment plus will experience a 10- 20% tax hit for withdrawing before retirement age.

They have most likely taken care of and buried both parents.

Grandparents are gone.

Their children don’t want them in their home because they still have the “family” pets! Or they just don’t care! (Sad, but true!)

These loving mom’s have helped their children, when they could.

And suddenly,

THEY ARE ALONE!

What’s the answer?

1) Take a 15 dollar an hour cut in pay to work and still not be able to cover their bills?

2) Become alcoholics and drug addicts so they are more likely to be eligible for state federal help?

That’s if they don’t end up living on the street first!

These smart savvy women are selling everything they can.

Researching the internet for passive incomes and praying!

Some are opening their homes and renting rooms.

Hoping they don’t get screwed over by a tenant that doesn’t pay or destroys half their house!

( That last one comes from personal experience! I’m still attempting to fix the damage on a zero budget so I can rent again!)

THEY/WE are fighters!

THEY/WE have HEART!

So America, I ask YOU!

What ARE YOU GOING to do about it?

The CLOCK IS TICKING!

Kind Regards

And kicking & screaming -K
