Ramblings & Musings

Sometimes, I reach out to friends, just to see how they're doing. Sometimes they're all good. Other times, they vent and they vent and they vent. And... I allow them to. Sometimes I have the right words to say to help them along. Other times, I can only listen. I never say it's too much and I never reject them when they vent to me. My friendship comes with an open door policy.

I've often seen others say that sometimes it's too much for them when they reach out to check on friends and then the friend just lays everything at their feet. Not me. I consider it an honor that my friends feel I'm worthy of such a task. Sometimes, we can't just talk to everybody. So when that one person reaches out to us, our spirits feel at ease, so we open up.

No, this doesn't make me any better than those who feel as if it's just too much to take on others' problems. Trust me, I get it. I understand completely. Self preservation is a must and we're all entitled to…

Widowed: A Review

Widowed was a wonderful story from start to finish. I already knew Arista would be a character I could connect with from the moment I read the first few pages. The story starts with Arista grieving her late husband, Paul. From there she meets Donald and that's when the sparks start to fly. I liked Donald instantly. Normally I'm not a fan of the older woman, younger man story lines as most authors tend to try too hard to make the connection seem authentic. However, Angelia's characters' connection seemed authentic from the jump.

Widowed told the story of woman who had loved and loved hard, but when it was time to move on, she wasn't so sure. It took a lot of soul searching for Arista to really give herself another chance at love. Donald was the perfect man for her to do this with. Tall, dark, and fine in every sense of the word.

And then you had Jackson and my mother always said if can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all. So I won't. LOL! …
