Wishing all the awesome Mom’s a day filled with family, love & laughter!
Happy Mother’s Day! 🥰
Momma made this house her own
In turn this was the place I’d grown
Now these moments are mine alone
Kept tucked inside my heart, I pine
I try to focus, but I just stare
No pictures hang, the walls are bare
Each one removed with utmost care
Those empty hooks, left behind
I close the door, in my stomach, a pit
On those front steps, never again will I sit
I never thought I’d be so hard hit
Perhaps this was all by design, that
I find myself grown up, too fast
I want to go back, relive the past
But seems my future has been cast
So in my soul, this place, I enshrine
How I looked up to you with nothing but love
Now you watch over me from Heaven above.
I miss you so very much, Mom…
Authors Note – Today I close on my childhood home. It will be the last time I walk the hallways & smile at the memories, so I shall cry at the finale.
Since I’ve been here….
Good morning, friends. I just wanted to stop in and say hello and tell you how much I miss all of you and your wonderful posts. I was hoping to be back full time at the start of 2021 but once again, life got in the way.
I am in the process of selling my mom’s home, the very home I grew up in, and am having a most difficult time with all of it. Because of this, and my mom’s passing last June, I haven’t had the desire to sit down and write. I’ve put out a few poems, here and there, but nothing is striking a cord with me right now. I’m sure, eventually, I will find my way back.
As some of you might know, I am also an Independent LuLaRoe Retailer and that also, has me crazy busy. A little personal plug here – We are currently holding a Fundraiser for Sjogren’s Syndrome until January 24th. It’s an autoimmune disease my daughter was diagnosed with in 2012. We are trying to raise awareness about this horrid condition. A portion of every sale goes to the organization and LuLaRoe matches that amount. So, if you desire a new shirt, sweater, jacket, etc, even the men, please do consider shopping online with us. (USA Only). The website is shop.lularoebless.com/dorindaduclos
Have a blessed and peaceful Sunday. I hope all is well in your neck of the woods, or over the pond.
Tapering down, leaving days of untold
Dripping memories, of past events
Happier times, still I’m not quite content
Candelabra in hand, a welcoming light
The fire, still burning, with no end in sight
Celebrating the day, reaching for more
Wondering what this life has in store
As closer to Halloween, comes the time
Knowing I still haven’t yet reached my prime
So, I’ll blow out the candles, let the wax seal my fate
On this day in October, 2020, twenty-eight
In case you haven’t figured it out, today is my birthday. I originally posted this four years ago and have amended it to reflect this years date. I’m off for the day! See you tomorrow ❤

I can’t believe it! Seven years have flown by and my little blog has an anniversary today. It seems like only yesterday when I posted my first article, back when I wasn’t posting my poetry (That’s officially in January).
Of course, I wouldn’t be here without the support and friendship from so many in the WordPress community (I don’t want to name for chance I may miss someone!), family and friends. I never dreamed I would make it this far, and yet, numerous books later, and two more awaiting editing, I am still here.
And so, off to year eight, and Lord only knows what it will bring! Many thanks to all of you, for allowing me to share my thoughts (sometimes crazy ones) and cheering me on. Because of you, I am able to continue my dream. See ya round the blogosphere! ❤
