Dedicated to those who can relate, there’s always better out there never settle for less…
I listen with my soul whenever he talks
Kiss the very ground which upon he walks
I do as I’m told but when I do not
I get what I deserve and deserve what I got
With the raise of a hand my body goes weak
Yet still his approval I somehow seek
He is after all what makes my world go round
Even if he pushes me down
It’s just a hand print here and a little bruise there
I keep my head down so people don’t stare….
Let no one tell you otherwise…

The King Cake tradition is thought to have been brought to New Orleans from France in 1870. A King Cake is an oval-shaped bakery delicacy, crossed between a coffee cake and a French pastry that is as rich in history as it is in flavor. It’s decorated in royal colors of PURPLE which signifies “Justice,” GREEN for “Faith,” and GOLD for “Power.” These colors were chosen to resemble a jeweled crown honoring the Wise Men who visited the Christ Child on Epiphany. In the past such things as coins, beans, pecans, or peas were also hidden in each King Cake.
Today, a tiny plastic baby is the common prize. At a party, the King Cake is sliced and served. Each person looks to see if their piece contains the “baby.” If so, then that person is named “King” for a day and bound by custom to host the next party and provide the King Cake.

When I asked they said the name Graham came from the fur being sorta the color of a graham cracker when he was a puppy, can’t help but feel the warm energy of love they have for him, makes me wonder so often how we can love our pets unconditionally, maybe there can come a time when we can love ourselves the same…
There’s never enough appreciation i feel I’ll be able to give to all of you who take interest in following what I have going, each time I reach one of the milestones I’m reminded of how it all started, there was no way I ever thought what little I had too offer could break a hundred, I guess I was wrong and for that I’m thankful know that it doesn’t go unnoticed….
I been really enjoying the water at the health club more and more lately, no one really ever had goes into the pool area all but the same usual faces, there’s this nice older lady who takes auqa aerobics, soon as it’s over she heads over to the tub, says it relaxes her aches and pains away, her name Rose she likes to talk about her grandchildren a lot, I like hearing the stories and the passion she has in telling them, sometimes cool people can be found in the last place you’d ever think to find them…
