Something About Me!

 PART I

cropped-my-facebook-pictures.jpgI’m originally from Haïti and,  in my early fifties. I’ve been living here in the U.S. since I was sixteen.

Yes, I raised my children, worked endlessly, baked my pastries and catered to my friends. Lastly, I taught myself how to sit and relax in my little garden, so I can enjoy a glass of red wine, or sip a cup of hot tea or  coffee; depending on the hour.

Sound good, wouldn’t you agree? Well, that was BEFORE I lost my job, and my children’s horns became visible!!!

You heard me! Yes, my girls grew horns instead of wings.

Blessing from above. “Children are blessing from the Lord.” So I thought they were.  (Depending on how cute they are, of course!) But, trust me on this one, “You better make sure you know from which Lord they are coming from. Because as those little brats get older, and they decide to rampage down the realm of nighmares (where they often vacation) by then, if you haven’t learned  how to pray for your sanity, you better run to a nearby church.

Why? Because in your dire need for emotional support, you’re prone to hear the following:

  “That’s not my problem  Mah!”

York! why did we did we look forward to their first word?

Isn’t it the lie we tell ourselves as  responsible parents, we feel compelled to sign an eternal contract to love and protect our children even through eternity if we have to?  But, as we get older, if by any chance the sun stops shining, isn’t it fair to expect them to rerciprocate the same favor?

Well, if you are not already aware of this fact, those little angelic brats we once cherished, may  turn out to be the same demons who’ll drag us to our early graves.

Of course, that’s IF WE LET THEM.

So  parents, don’t ever become just a nameless doe for the sake of your children. Even if you have to spend your last dime, do yourself this favor: Spend one penny on THEM, THE REMAINING NICE CENTS ON YOURSELF.

“Just kidding.” However, do be kind to yourself. Because later on, you may regret it. Particularly if by any chance, after all your sacrifices, the little demons still  choose to travel down the road of foolishness, while spending thousands of dollars on a Good-Cheer purse, or a Je T’adore bottle of perfume, while they leave you behind  in the sea of forgetfulness, jobless and homeless.

After your sorrowful death, they’ll say:

“She’s finally gone! But,  she sure was the best Mah!”

My answer from my grave: “To hell with you. Why didn’t you show me that during my many attempts to stop breathing?”

But, seriously,  thanks to my children, I learned how to cope with my stress through writing.

Although, my girls were not the only ones responsible for my retarded state of mind. The woman we call LIFE was guilty as charged.  

No wonder they call her a bitch!

Sorry for cursing, but I decided to step out from my comfort zone today.

The fact is, with all the misery”THAT WOMAN,” seved me,, I could have easily wrote a book entitled to:”The World Most Curse Woman.”

But, I won’t dare give Her that satisfaction. Knowing her, she’ll probably boast her ugly pride on another victim.

Don’t get me wrong. To be honest,  I haven’t been able to count my blessings. And, I’ve  had the pleasuer to meet  some great folks as well.

But, I ‘ve had so called friends???

Need I say more? 

“Value crash – Value crash!!!

What can I say? I’m known to throw my pearls upon swine.  But at least, for a brief moment, they had an encounter with the light.Yes, I refuse to dance with darkness, so I guess I’m a loner.

sprinkles-of-hope

Guess what? In the process of venting my anger toward life, what a grand surprise when I discovered I was an artist? 

For my first painting, I really wanted to paint a woman dressed in black with a serpent choking the life out of her. Instead, I end up painting  a joyful pregnant woman with a smiling baby girl.

I called it “The Joy of Motherhood.”

Can you believe this? I couldn’t even vent my anger though painting.  Because the fact is, love will always conquer all. So why not paint something beautiful!!!

Strange isn’t it? Some of us have to be tortured emotionally before we can journey through the road of self-discovery. Indeed, what does not kill us make us strong.

Another fact about me is, whenever that woman we call LIFE ties me down trough a straight jacket, I discover one more hidden talent. Honestly,  I think God uses my brain as an experimentation tools. Perhaps before He releases a new talent on the earth, he test it on me first. Of course, that’s when He finally manage to get  my attention. 

I swear I urinate talents whenever I’m depressed.

JPEG FAITH

Yes, I’m multi-talented, artistic. So, I’ve been told. And, I won’t debate this fact either.

I think that’s God’s way to either compensate me for being a good/bad sinner or to show me how He can glorify His name through any worthless piece of mud.

Or, perhaps it’s because of my stern faith in Him. Because I just believe He id able to do anything. And, I’m not afraid to ask Him to share His creative mind with me.

Exemple of my typical conversation with God:

 “Are you sleeping God?”

“I don’t sleep Nadege.”

“So, don’t you get borred watching everybody’s business?”

“Don’t play with me young lady!”

‘Can you say that again?”

“NADEGE!!!”

“oops! Just kidding!”

“What do you want? Have a meeting.”

“I just need to know how to make this dress.”

God: “We uphere don’t wear dresses, so how should I know? Mm! Then again, you just gave me an idea- Great job my child!”

Me: ‘Dawn it! I forgot to copyright this one as well!”

SOMETHING ABOUT ME – PART II

Seriously. What limitation can we place on our Creator. By the way, He has   a great sense of humor.

Are doubting ME?

He created me didn’t He?

To be continued.

    Hello, it’s Ariel Klay, again. I must say I enjoy the earthy humor in your blog. I studied French in high school and in college. I’ve forgotten most of it now, so my “parle vooing” is quite weak. My deceased grandfather, Phil Buskirk, spoke a number of languages, Spanish, Hebrew and French and when he retired in Florida, he worked with the Haitian refugees in the ’80’s. He was affectionately called “Pere Phillipe.” Please forgive my lack of an accent, but as you know, “English” keyboards just don’t have ’em.

      Hi Marjorie. Happy belated New Year! Hope all is well for you. Guess what? I went to an event, a young man with the last name Comeau was introduced. I thought of you. My sister and I meant to ask him if he was related to us, but we didn’t have a chance.
      Wishing you the best for the New Year!

    We all live through bad times and death. It doesn’t help to be bitter. I’ve done that and it doesn’t help. I’ve turned to writing to ease my pain. I try to leave the bitterness behind when I’m creating and writing. Does god hear our pain? Does he care if we cry inside? I don’t know. I’ve stopped asking. I only have myself to care for me. Leave your bitterness behind and try to enjoy life as much as you can.

      Thank you Susanne for your visit and for taking the time to comment as well. Far from that, I have not a string of bitterness in my heart. I do ask God some questions as well, and trust He’ll answer at the perfect timing, whenever He feels we’ve learned from our trials….. Yes, I have my spiral days of laughter and discouragement; then again we all do. I just feel sometimes mine is a bit overwhelming. But, hey! What can I say. This is the life I was called to live I guess. lol Thanks again for your visit.
