Happily Ever After. (Short Story) - 10/9/2011 6:40:27 AM
The story is abuse and sadness is often true for far too many. I'm glad to see that this story turned around and smiles and laughter endure. Touching piece! ~Hugs, Elizabeth
Happily Ever After. (Short Story) - 8/15/2011 7:08:21 AM
Laura, I know all to well what abuse is from several angles. I know about being being abused as a child, I know what abuse is from being an adolescent, and Iknow what abuse is from being an adult. When children can laugh, play and be carefree, then that is the best times of a child's life. But when abuse happens, either to them or to someone they love, then that laughter is either gone forever or put on the back burner sometimes for years.
It is good that your children were able to laugh again as children. Thank you for sharing this.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and may He be with you always, and at your side contantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister, Barbie

Time For Us. (Short Story) - 4/17/2011 8:21:29 PM
Finally, They are showing on your site. This poem strums my heart strings. I have to smile softly as my memories are awakened. It warms my heart that I can say love is in my life and my heart is filled with truth in that love. Beautiful and amazing gift you have.

Happily Ever After. (Short Story) - 3/30/2011 2:30:36 PM
Hopefully the sounds of laughter will always fill your home because it sure sounds as though you've had your fair share of "sniffles and sadness".

Happily Ever After. (Short Story) - 3/30/2011 11:20:17 AM
Yes Regis as I sadly do know the opposite rather well and went through a harsh divorce having no other choice and my first marriage took a toll on this second life I tried to build as it honestly took ten years of many rough up and downs and we just recently took a chance after years of back and forth and then apart. Therefore, I sympathizes what you mean truly I do, as I never knew happiness could exists at least not in my world and still there come fears of the bubble bursting.
Happily Ever After. (Short Story) - 3/30/2011 10:05:24 AM
That's the way it ought to be, Laura Lee; sadly though, the opposite is often the case. Love and best wishes,
Time For Us. (Short Story) - 3/29/2011 11:36:06 AM
If these words that picture the love of one other remain with you throughout the balance of your life, then you, dear friend, are indeed a fortunate woman.
Your friend, Mark
Time For Us. (Short Story) - 3/29/2011 9:27:54 AM
Love given and reciprocated is a lovely thing, Laura Lee. Love and best wishes,
Stay. (Short Story) - 3/24/2011 6:30:22 AM
You honestly share the ups and the downs of this life, Laura Lee; and I do wish you love and blessings,
Stay. (Short Story) - 3/24/2011 5:53:14 AM
In youth we come to relationships with preconceived notions of how the other should act and react and so often these preconceived notions are false for one or the other. But as one grows older, hopefully, one sees the other as an individual with individual attitudes and, childhood notions aside, attitudes can be softened making room for love. Good story, my friend.
Baby I'm Yours (Short Story) - 3/15/2011 4:30:18 PM
Sometimes...So often it takes both parties the time to grow from child, though an adult child, into an adult person... This is pretty much what my third novel, "For Better or Worse" is about. Mitchell was 21 and Marsha 19 and it took many years, three separations and three children before "Becoming" adults.
Your friend, Mark
Baby I'm Yours (Short Story) - 3/15/2011 4:13:04 PM

Oh yeah, Laura Lee. Lovely and passionate; a sure cure for getting over the low times of this life/world. Love and best wishes to you,
Loving You. (Short Story) - 3/11/2011 10:14:15 AM
Laura, the words are passionate, but this looks to me to be more a poem than a story. Look the words over and place them in some semblence of poetic order and re-submit it as a poem.
Your new friend, Mark

Where Are You Prince Charming? (Short Story) - 11/21/2010 12:57:10 PM
Therefore, as another holiday season comes I will certainly wish upon the brightest star in the sky that night and as the ball drops New Years Eve I still believe!
I think it is good that you don't give up on your dreams, Laura Lee. I wish for you that they come true with love and my best sentiments,

What Hurts The Most (Article) - 9/9/2012 8:45:59 PM
As the date of this submission is 11/3/10, it is now near three years since your writing of this terrible story-- terrible that is in your husband's deeds and not the words that you have written. I know now your life has changed and that you and your children are safe and happy and do deserve all the happiness you can have.
Your friend, Mark

You're absolutely right. The best part of a fight is making up and forgetting while you fought in the first place!

I hope you continue to grow and learn more about your hearts true desires Laura. I am glad to know you. Sincerely, Karen
Always The Fool. (Article) - 3/28/2011 3:41:59 AM
No! not the fool Laura, just a work in progress as I like to say. Everybody on this planet is here to learn, we are just all learning at a different pace and a different lesson. Like lessons in time make magic. But unfortunately more often then not, the broken pieces of a heart take longer to heal then we have patients for. Thank you for candidly sharing a piece or your heart. Sincerely, Karen

Smile. (Article) - 3/27/2011 9:28:39 AM
The sweetest times were, indeed, those "make up" times. Problem was, it seemed like I was always the one making up and, most often, my efforts at making up were not eaisly received.
Smile. (Article) - 3/27/2011 8:05:18 AM
You are probably right, Laura Lee; making up is far better than breaking down. Lol! Love and best wishes,
Always The Fool. (Article) - 3/17/2011 7:49:55 AM
Possibly, Laura, you move too fast along with your expectations. Sometimes slowing up and giving the other time to consider the good that he has will allow him time to bring his emotions into control so that he may see what he could be loosing.
Your friend, Mark
Always The Fool. (Article) - 3/17/2011 6:54:48 AM
There is no doubt that this life's road is full of bumps and hills and valleys and curves and sometimes even dead ends where one has to turn around and start over. I hope you are okay, Laura Lee. Love and best wishes to you,
No More Tears (Article) - 3/16/2011 10:24:31 AM
Since there are only tears of joy and much passion as I now cry out breathlessly in such satisfaction throughout this marvelous night.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience that many seek and wish for, Laura Lee. Love and best wishes,

True Friends. (Article) - 3/13/2011 7:47:27 PM
This reminds me of some very important rules that I learned a long time ago. Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you. Thats the first one, and forgiveness in devine is another. There's more but I would be on my soap box again and thats not what this is about.lol Thank you for your sweet words Laura. Karen
True Friends. (Article) - 3/13/2011 9:27:49 AM
This is true as there are truly good people here in Authors Den, and friendships can be made, at least friendships can be made so far as our computers will allow because here most of us show a good face, but, I wonder, how many computerized friendships would remain were we to truly meet face to face... Just something I occasionally wonder about.
Your friend, Mark
True Friends. (Article) - 3/13/2011 9:01:03 AM
True friendship is indeed a treasure, Laura Lee. You express this very well via your words here. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

There is some good advice shared through your words here, Laura; of course, also remember not to lose yourself in the process. Thank you for getting me to think. Love and best wishes,
Do I Get Scared . (Article) - 3/11/2011 7:52:28 AM
Laura, You have to stay positive and when you least expect that Prince he will show and the timing will be right!! Remember everything happens for a reason. Always keep your heart open even when it has been broken! Sending love your way my friend. :)
Do I Get Scared . (Article) - 3/10/2011 9:02:45 PM
Furthermore, I must stay positive and realize that just maybe for once my dreams of finding that hero have finally come true and I will no longer be blue or a fool as he sincerely said, I do love you!
I do wish all good things for you, Laura Lee. I can understand the apprehension too. Love and best wishes,
Do I Get Scared . (Article) - 3/10/2011 7:02:17 PM

This summer is too hot! Grandmothers are pushovers. Two scoops of ice cream will not make you cooler, but they will put phat on your bones.

Aw! This is so sweet (pardon the pun)...Isn't it amazing how much ice cream children can eat!!! giggle
On a Hot Day (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 7:51:22 PM
Two scoops will melt twice as fast so better to have one scoop two times. You guys back east have been getting all the heat while us guys back west are having really lovely weather.

could not have happened to a nicer person

I love 'Happily Ever After' emotions felt deeply Laura!
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 3:57:47 PM
I think sometimes we have to learn the hard way to truly appreciate the beauty of true love, we need to have known bad love first.
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 3:37:35 PM
I congratulate you, you deserve it. See they are still out there.
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 2:36:06 PM

A gentleman is a blessing Laura. I am happy for you both.
Lady Mary Ann
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 11:06:45 AM
True gentlemen are hard to find now-a-days and this, in part, may be because many women feel it belittles them if a man holds a door open for them. If you, indeed, have found a true gentleman that respects and returns your love, how wonderful this is for you, dear Laura.
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 10:58:23 AM
So many live in wedded hell, a private hell, yet insecurity leaves them in their self made cage, rather than fly away and escape to freedom and dignity.
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 10:02:35 AM
I like the poem that ends happily ever after. Otherwise, it's cried far too many times.
Second Chance (Poetry) - 6/21/2012 9:27:50 AM
So good to know that there are still good guys out there somewhere..Luckily you found one of them. I am still looking.
Much peace, love and light,

I'm happy for her/you, Laura. I feel that I'm also blessed these days.
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/19/2012 5:39:47 AM
Your dad may inspire other men as they read what you have written about him. He surely saved you from despair and served as the rock you needed in your life. What a wonderful dad he was!
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/10/2012 7:46:33 AM
A true man with heart, he stepped up to the plate in every way, this is compassionate and grips my heart Laura, he will be smiling down on you on Father's Day, as he does every day!

Praises from the heart such as

Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 12:47:55 PM
It is so sad that you had to go through so much. But then, your adopted father was always there for you when you really needed someone. Continue to honor him and all men like him.
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 8:43:25 AM
i choose to believe that he hears each and every one or your beautiful words...how lucky you both were to havee had each other. celebrate him with yoour happiest memories on father's day...each day!
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 7:54:46 AM
As a father and one who loved and still loves his child unreserved I would like to think that she thinks of me, will maybe not as a hero, but as someone who is always there for her and whom she can count on.
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 6:45:11 AM
Small children, when they scrape their knees, come looking for someone to show; and, even though the scrape is no less bleeding, the showing to another who gives care is more a bandaid than the bandaid. "Share" is a word that I find to be nearly as essential to human life as is 'food,' and your offering this writing I believe not only cradles your wound, but the wounds of those who read it. Then, as time and overlay experiences thicken the scar tissue, it can be what happened once, but no more. Thank you, Laura. ~~ Diana
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 6:31:04 AM
Laura, though you and I have never actrually met, here, on authors Den, I feel as a friend and, as a friend, this story of the times you were hurt and this story of the wonderful man that came to your rescue both, as a child and then, as an adult, truly touched me.
Your friend; Mark
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 6:07:20 AM
As Amber and Jerry have said, there's great bravery
in this writing, Laura, and a sense of deep personal loss
and true beauty in the truths you share
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 5:26:14 AM
I agree with Amber, this is a brave write. You grandfather (dad) was a hero, Laura, and you know that better than anyone.
Can You Hear Me. (Poetry) - 6/8/2012 5:10:35 AM
This is such a brave piece of poetry. You have healed in so many ways to be able to publish something so personal and poignant.
My heart goes out to you. I know you have suffered in your lifetime, but also have possessed this special person "Your Dad", to have been your beacon of hope and salvation. Thank Goodness for him, yes a hero indeed!
I wish you health, wealth and happiness and Happy Father's Day to your Dad!
Peace, love and light,

Well, Laura, my friend, so it seems the heat is, indeed, on. Had a lovely day, though, here in SoCal with the high hitting about eighty-two.
The Heat Is On. (Poetry) - 5/29/2012 5:21:00 AM
"That now is here to stay and many more on the way. "
I love that line, Laura.
Summer is my most hated month. Even when I was young and without old man's diseases I didn't much like summer. These days I hate it.
Love your poem about it though.

Beautiful! Beautiful! Well done Laura.
Singing in the rain, reminds me them all days when we used to wash ourselves in the rain after a hard work on the farm. You feel refreshing and all worries fade away.
Love & Marriage. (Poetry) - 5/3/2012 3:35:15 AM
Love, relationships and marriages are no dreams or phantasm. They are real life situations which can turn ones life for better or for worse. The ups and downs are part of every life situation, the problem is how to sail past them without breaking ones heart. Picking up the pieces of a broken heart is the worst part of a broken marriage. But then, loving and caressing for each other, working together side by side is the solution for a better marriage. Well said Laura!
Your poem is educationally informative.
Singing in the Rain (Poetry) - 5/3/2012 1:15:02 AM

Wonderful. I was singing in the rain just yesterday, with my dogs. But if you ask my wife, she claims it's more like howling.
Nights Are Forever. (Poetry) - 5/1/2012 3:45:31 PM
Laura, I thank our Creator for that magical ability we call "love". No other creature on earth has that quality. The sentiments offered are genuine and alluring but you give it a special "Glee" that punctuates what we desire most...that magic to last forever.

Why They Cry (Poetry) - 4/21/2012 4:38:17 AM
Heart-wrenching. So tragic and sad. You ask why love sometimes hurts, but in these circumstances, it is not love. For the victim who has given their love, their all, yes, but not for the assailant. They know nothing of love. I hope and pray along with you. I am glad to read that you now live without fear and pray that continues for you and for all. God bless. ~Hugs, Elizabeth

They never seem to understand the damage this does to children who have to experience and witness this. I wish I could say I had never known this to occur but I saw it too often and all I can say is THAT is NOT love Great write, Laura
Why They Cry (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 11:01:58 AM
Laura blessings to you. A write that brings forth
the terrible and tramatic. I am happy for you and
your children. lol Lady Mary Ann
Why They Cry (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 10:24:01 AM
Laura, this brings tears and memories. My husband was abusive, I put up with it for years out of fear and knowing I had no place to go. I felt like a trapped animal in a cage. He wasn't only physically abusive but mentally. I felt I had no self esteem at all, He would curse me every day, I can still hear him after all these years. It never leaves you, Laura. I've written alot of abuse poems and I hope you read them. I FINALLY got out only because he'd found another woman. Its a power thing, they choose women who are meek and mild and know won't go against them. I'm happy and proud you got out, Laura. God bless you and I pray you've found happiness.
Why They Cry (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 8:55:01 AM
Thank you for this honesty revealed. My comments are: there is emotional abuse that leaves no visible wound and it joins the black eye version, although the black eye is both emotional and physical. It seems we are not able to make a change until the fear of 'staying' becomes more painful than the fear of 'going into the unknown of leaving' anywhere or anything or anone. Anger, I believe, is fear; and the angry people in this world are riddled with fear. It is too bad they cannot just see, admit and ask for help about that. It would heal many hearts. But they can't. Braveness comes in the form of 'walking away' sometimes. I'm glad you did. So did I. ~~ Diana
Why They Cry (Poetry) - 4/19/2012 8:53:58 AM
This took so much courage to write.
I lived with my father beating my mother for years. The black eyes, the broken bones, the denial.
Finally when I was a senior in high school, he had a knife to her throat and I hit him with a pan and knocked him out. From that day on, he was not longer my father, and he was arrested and never came back again. I vowed that I would never have this in my life, and my children would never have to suffer through something this horrific. It has left scars, but honestly, I am lucky in my life that I didn't have to deal with this type of violence happening around me or my children. I did however, had to deal with my ex husband's alcoholism. That was a whole other painful experience. We all have our past, but we must rise above it all and live in the moment, and enjoy what we have right now...You have a beautiful soul, and you must know that it was never your fault, it was always his issues, not yours.
Move forward as you are doing and you and your children will be that much more happier and joyful.
In peace, love and light,

Wonderful, terribly pathetic poem, Laura. How terrible that you, or any woman was and is forced to be at the mercy of a cowardly brute of a husband with little or no immediate recourse. I can only hope that the son of a bitch that did this to you has or is spending many days, months or years in prison where he may be the beaten one. One can only hope.
Your friend; Mark

Men to beat women have a very low opinion of themselves. They have no self respect. Bastards.

..no, you did nothing wrong to deserve black eyes;
i despise the bastards who bully and beat, cowards
the lot of them..this is very disturbing and very brave.
Bless you, Laura, and bless all women who have to
suffer these horrors

My heart aches for women in this position....I can't even imagine what it must be like!!! I'm so happy you got out of that life, Laura! You deserve to be happy and so do your children!!!!

Laura, I tremble as I read this, "facing the wicked storm head on" there must of been an inner strength that said 'No More'...to turn such a horrific time around and now write about it, is not only theraputic, but helps others that are in this situation. I can't begin to imagine...I am so glad frowns are now smiles and your children do not have to endure such pain as well.

I just love the teasing of romantic moments and I can almost remember that sentiment clearly.

Can't wait! The tulips are beginning to sprout...and I've seen a few crocus...but not much else is popping up here yet.

Your inspiration is well founded as Spring signals the rebirth of natures bounty and causes the soul to dance and the heart to sing. Excellent sentiments.
