Wild Turkeys Have Beards

Did you know that wild turkeys have beards?

Sometimes the small stuff pushes me to the edge.

Have you ever wanted something so badly, dreamed something so big & the truth of the matter is that you know in your heart of hearts that it will never come to be – and get really sad about the actuality of that?

I love my home, it is the house I grew up in, I’ve got the same phone number I’ve had my entire life, I love being close to my daughter who lives across the street, BUT I want to move to Maui, work & live in paradise and ride my motorcycle EVERY day!!

Have you ever been in the car running an errand and think to yourself that you should forget the errand and just drive. I mean just go, keep going, driving off to nowhere in particular - just disappearing? And, then do you wonder how the people around you – close to you - your children, your grandchildren, your spouse, your co-workers would react if you were just suddenly gone? Could they function without you…

I am employed, that is more than I can say for hundreds of thousands of people in these trying economic times who have become laid off because their company was downsized, etc. BUT I wish someone else here knew how to do what I do so I could take some time very necessary off!

I simply adore my grandchildren, I love to spend time with them, play with them, spoil them rotten BUT I don’t like the threat to have them taken to their father the sperm donor when I would like a weekend of babysitting off!

I don’t eat very healthily, drink to much, sleep too little, work too hard, love with my whole heart, swear a lot, don’t exercise enough, miss my mother and really believe the grass is greener…

I know, there are people with sick children, physical ailments, mortgage/financial problems – people in much more difficult situations than mine, BUT, this is my pity party so I’m going to pout if I want to!!

No, really, wild turkeys do have beards!

Until next time…

  1. I have a dream too. I want to retire and move South some day, but like you, in my heart of hearts, I don't believe it will ever happen. And maybe that's what could keep our dreams from happening...not believing they could happen. I think we have to believe..I just don't know exactly how to do that.
