Auburn hair and amber eyes…

A smile to fill you with the sun…

A warmth and brightness to her soul…

A sense of adventure and great strength…

Warm hands that create…

Such beauty, such art…

A loving heart in all things…

Elizabeth Marie…

Please bring her back to me

Safe and sound…

heart filled thoughts and hopes abound…

Bittersweet 2013


Bittersweet memories of 2013

5. My mom was hospitalized¬†with heart and lung issues in November. We (my sister and I) found out my mom needs to have¬†aortic valve replacement surgery when her lungs are strong enough. ūüė¶ Shes better now but,¬†the cardiologist says she is a ticking time bomb because of the valve being bad. Update: Mom had her valve replacement 04/2014.

After 12/2013 I Plan to lose another 50 pounds in 2014 (I am praying)

7. A little birdy¬†told me grandchild number 2 may be on the way in 2014! It is supposed to be a secret so no pics. Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone! lol.

In conclusion, 2013 brought good, bad and downright frightening times; but we persevered and made it through another year!

Looking Through the Window


Looking Through the Window

I look through¬†the window and see all the dreams that have¬†yet come to pass…

All the hopes I have…

I look around I see ambivalence…

The¬†indifferent veneer covering people’s despair…

I look in the mirror…

I see the years that have gone by…

The innocence fading from my eyes…

The mistakes I’ve made…

I see the tears I’ve cried and those to come…

In my sleep come the nightmares…

I look at my children and I feel so much love…

I am certainly blessed from God above…

Yet, I yearn for a future where¬†my body is¬†not broken…

And there is no pain…

Looking through the window…

I am older…

wiser…

And perhaps happier…

but still in pain…

Whats Forever For?


I wrote the following poem after my third  and final relationship ended in 2004.

Whats Forever For? by Stacey L. Feitz

Whats forever for?

No one stays together anymore…

A one night stand…

Commitment…

infidelity…

Whats forever for?

Always looking over their shoulder…

For someone else…

Someone older…

Younger…

Sexier…

Whats forever for?

Excitements gone…

What went wrong…

Abused …

Tattered…

bleeding…

Spiritual death…

Whats forever for?

No…

Yes…

Maybe…

Don’t touch me…Don’t stop…

Communication breakdown…

Whats forever for?

Separation…

Divorce…

Hate…

In the game of love if we’re always breaking up… No longer a family…

Then God please tell me what’s forever for?
