Laura's Corner

I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.

I doubt it?

Absolutely not!

Let's just say you are trucking along in life. You’re doing a-ok, at least in your eyes. Your life, for the most part, is within normal limits. Once in a while you do something out of the ordinary, add a little spice to your life. Whether it’s a trip, tattoo, hair style, new friend, hobby or other, you’ve decided to go in a new direction. Maybe you’ve started dating or joined a website for that particular purpose. Either way, there’s always going to be someone, in your inner circle, who has something to say. And usually it’s not a good thing.

On your own....

In reviewing the last few years of my life, I'll keep it short and sweet.  I've had some unexpected surprises, have been completely unprepared and was not ready for certain circumstances.  Let's just say at times I questioned, "Why me?"  After a few months, lots of writing and talking with friends, I've come to a conclusion about life in general.  One question that comes to mind is, "How do we survive in a world which will throw us into gentle rain and tornadoes, all within a matter of moments?"   I think I have the answer.

As a little girl, I remember attending weddings, many to be honest.  My mother's family consisted of 8 children, father's included 3.  The women were, for the most part, educated, which included a college degree.  This included my maternal Grandmother who had, I believe, attended college as well.  I remember education being a very important part of our lives.  My Grandmother would wrap her arms around me, "Laurie, you're so smart, you've got such a good mind, use it!"  Little did she know I was drawn more towards boys than books, but what she doesn't know won't hurt her.

Rear View

To cut down on stress while driving, there have been times when I will simply lower my rear view mirror as to avoid seeing what’s behind me. Because I get slightly nervous when someone’s on my tail, this greatly reduces my desire to drink and drive.
