“THE FALL-ING”

September 22, @931am EDT this morning, Autumn has officially arrived! I don’t know about the rest of you, but in my opinion, this is the best time of year. Its when the summer humidity finally starts to fade away and more dry winds begin to pick up causing the leaves to fall. Its a beautiful thing. I usually love to travel to Miami every first week of October, and enjoy a night spot at Mangos, because the weather is so amazing at this time. After my fall trip from Miami I start to get into the vibe of enjoying all of the Halloween festivities that comes to town.. Theres plenty to look forward to do with the kiddies. Who wouldn’t love a trick or a treat and the guilty pleasure of a fried Oreo cookie at a community festival once a year. I know I do!

I can almost claim with a certainty that you feel as I do, that we are all kids at heart and if you have children then you know what i mean. We live through them. We know what once made us happy as a child, so we’ll try to instill those same fundamental activities into our children. We were all Toys R’ Us kids at one time or another. So I say, Once Autumn arrives, its game on for fun and excitement for the precious little ones. They deserve the most fun out of this last quarter of 2020

As parents, we are going to have to get a little creative if our Fall-ing Autumn has to be compromised by being semi- quarantined. While we may be at home for this Halloween, theres still alot of fun you can have in the home of course. I love Pumpkin picking and Carving, Making pies, arts, crafts at home and watching a Goosebump movie!

Today being the very first day of Autumn, the CDC has put out new specific guidelines (that pretty much all of America would have to abide by for good reason) already for Halloween. I have read the guidelines and its pretty much cancelling Halloween activities. As every state differs I would advise parents to just find out what would be the deal in your local state/city community.

As it appears Autumn has begun, it just might feel like

THE WOMAN OF THE PARK

Hola Senora,

My name is MisterRick, and i cant help but to notice that you’re crying. Are you okay Senora? As she replies emotionally, Yes, I am okay senor’ please excuse me, i just needed a minute to be in my feelings. As i reached in my hoodie blazer for a hanckerchief to hand her, I stated, I’m sorry for whatever it is that’s making you cry.

In a soft sniffle breath she replies, “it’s ok senor,’ I was just watching you with your child over there in the playground, and you just reminded me of my family, thats all. This is where my husband and daughter use to come every Sunday for a picnic.

As I took notice that she mentioned her family in past tense, I immediately felt sympathetic towards this woman of the park. She begins to speak again with a low melancholy voice and states “You see, MisterRick, right now, I’m choosing to be here instead of at home today because being here brings me serenity right now. It helps me feel closer to my family so i’ve been coming here for the past several weekends. I replied with a concerned question. I’m sorry, and if you don’t mind me asking, where is your family right now while you’re alone in this park?

As she stared at me with glassy sunlit watery eyes for a few seconds without speaking, the light breeze whistled gently across her lustered hair over her forehead, displaying a distinctive beauty! She had my complete attention. She replied to me stating, How she use to feel so lucky being in this country and that now her family hopes and dreams have diminished severely. She starts to explain that over a month ago her family was stripped apart by I.C.E (Immigration Custom Enforcement) Patrol officers that took her husband and daughter out of their home. During this horrible event, she was away in another state nursing her dying mother who is suffering with cancer. Officers of The U.S. broke down her apartment door at around 6am removing the husband and daughter. Neighbors, and witnesses stated that I.C.E officers were aggressively rude, and scaring the hell out of the children. Putting kids and adults in trucks with cages as though they were criminals. It has been six weeks since shes seen them.

I extended my hand to her and we exchanged cell numbers and I will give her as much assistance and support as I can. If we are alive and well, then it is our duty to help fight for others to be well. For Any Man, Any Woman and Especially Any Child. No matter race, religion, color, or sex.

We are Human-So let’s start to be Humane💜

“Mom-Everest”

This is a short read because i just would like to reflect a little focus on one of the highest mountains to climb in the world.. This landmark is of such structure and beauty. its strengths magnifies when its the coldest of months. To stand this powerful appears megaless, as if she always existed! This wonder of the world attracts humans of all ethnic races, and cultures from around the world. She has the attention from the strongest men. The beauty of her attraction is that it’s captivating by most and many have tried to climb her and being over 29,000 feet high, that’s more than one hell of a climb. Very few have succeeded. Many has perished while approaching her high altitudes, however, The Mom-Everest still persists and continues to climb. She is the rock, she is the mountain! She is sometimes under appreciated by some and also at times ridiculed by the one she loves most when being a wife, but she still climbs.

While some may argue or debate, her adventure seems like an impossible one, and she is aware and never scared!

As a Man, I am not ashamed to acknowledge that I would not even attempt to climb “The Mom-Everest mountain simply because i would begin to decay in about a week! All I can do is recognize and shine the light on All the “Mom-Everest out there with the highest respect, honor and gratitude for all you do. Whether you climb alone, or with the ones you love, let blessings be at your front door to get you to the top of your mountain! Respect, and Love!

REMEMBERSEPTEMBER-911′

I dont know why I chose to write today, but my hearts actually feeling a certain type of way. I’ve dealt with my share of heartache over time and certainly by losing loved ones to Covid-19. Now today I am having rememberence of what happened on what I call the most horrifying day to me and to our country. Today is one that family, friends and people should come together and ‘RememberSeptemb-ER’911.

NY/NJ residents are more likely to have known someone or has had a friend who knew someone that has been lost on that tragic day..Here on the East coast, those Twin Towers employed people from all over the tri state area of NY, NJ, CT, PA and even as far as DC there were commuters to the towers on a daily basis.

Being born and raised in the New York Metropolitan area I thought I could’ve said that “I’ve seen it all. Until that day I witnessed one of the most horrifying events of my life unfold while driving along the NJ Turnpike that fateful morning. When the first tower was hit, you can see the smoke for miles. When the second tower hit shortly after, most of the city pretty much was in a frenzy and knew there was an attack right in our backyards on American soil. It reminded me at that time of a movie I’d seen in the 80’s called “Red Dawn” It was a scary moment. I was driving a convertible at the time and was forced to pull over in the shoulder lane on the NJ TurnPike, because most of the exits were being shut down. While I was sitting along the shoulder side of the highway for a few minutes I was facing east, im watching what appeared as a piece of the sky become a mass of dark smoke move slowly across the Hudson River into New Jersey, like a massive phantom and just right before I was about to push the button on closing my convertible Top, a dark shadow overcame my whole vehicle and the one next to me. Once I looked up, in awe, and to my surprise, there was a Black Stealth Bomber Jet hovering over my car, sitting in the air so silently and without any movement! I felt as if I would try and stand up in my drivers seat, my head would hit the bottom of the stealth fighter jet. It hovered for about 10-15 seconds and then shot like a dart across the hudson river back into New York. it was literally seconds!

I felt a fear that I have never experienced before. At that moment I started to call all my family and love ones to assure that their safe. The cell phones back then was not as quick as they are today and the anarchy and volume of flooded calls made it quite difficult to reach people. Lines were being dropped almost every call. It was surreal! I finally got through to most family and was relieved that everyone was safe. However, the one person that never picked up the phone was my dear friend that I never got to see again! She worked in the second tower that went down.

She is the reason I am writing this and just like the thousands of others thats mourning right now, I am one of them. We as a country shall mourn with strength together from what took place that fateful day!

I write this for her, because I Loved her, she was beautiful, she was special, and she was a mom! So Today I Tell My friends….

Pleaselistentomommy today and REMEMBERSEPTEMB-ER’911

‘Mister-Thesis

As we slowly unofficially end the summer of 2020 we soon begin to approach the autumn of this Fall-en year. (no pun intended there)

Are we prepared for the last quarter? While the unexpected remains to be seen, we can accept this cool down period to reflect and analyze what has occurred thus far and possibly try to imagine what’s next. While I’m not an advocate for worrisome folk, I do however, require specific forms of security in my life and my loved ones. As this year has been definitely one out of the abyss and uncertainty. During this final quarter of the year “My Mister-Thesis’ would like to encourage and empower ‘ALL of us together to keep on pushing with the wisdom, strength and the beauty that we all pocess with whatever it is that comes along with the territory and accept the new norm. Create an ambiance of clarity while practicing to be a good listener, deading impulsivness nature and thinking before reacting.

Perhaps maybe we can start off the new season with a soft cup of tea ☕or a smooth chilled glass of makers mark, or whatever it may take to sail these new waters.

Create your balance now and then proceed forward for the unpredictable fourth quarter. So just for a moment lets give this year the “Blockbuster slogan that we all can remember to “Please Be kind and rewind

Best,

“Moms Are the Dearest!”

Photo by Rodolfo Quiru00f3s on Pexels.com

Heyy Moms!! its back to school time and Covid-19 is still in the building! What are we parents suppose to do!? Remote learning? Three days in school and 2 days at home?

Have our children wear a mask all day in class!? WTF Really? Our kids are so confused and we as parents doesnt really know what to say! I’m one of them. lol..Its a mess and we all want our babies safe and secure! Every Covid-19 state differs all across our country..So i was just wondering if there’s an emotional affect that this is carrying on all of us!? Perhaps, but just hang in there, because you are dear!

While it seems the rules are changing every single day, i just want to make sure as parents, that we dont forget about our kids fragile mentality. The confusions they posess that’s hidden in their minds! They are afraid to go back to school and needless to say afraid of what has been hot topics on world news lately..Mommy Dearests are human too but to feel the need to understand and take a step back to remember what a child’s mind can imagine, and remain diligent in including positive reassurance into our children and reiterating that “All will be fine.

That said, we must massage their intellectual feelings that our children may manifest during this time…Mommy Dearests are so stressed just by worrying day by day what the heck is going to happen next and/or what should I do now! Only because it’s a new day everyday! Let me be the first to say, please listen to our children right now, they can sense, and they certainly can feel the atmosphere more closely than we can right now. So when we think we are most right with our in touch feelings towards our children, then we should think again, because we are more than likely to be incorrect towards our emotional stance when it comes to them..

Our kids are on the front lines during these times!! So once again, Please “Dontlistentomommy,

“Don’t Listen To Mommy”

Photo by Kat Jayne on Pexels.com

Parenting is one of the most challenging jobs there is to hold. I certainly applaud the moms that are doing there very best as caregivers and providers for their children during these difficult times we are all facing. If your a single mom then it can be much more overwhelming with just trying to maintain the basic necessities such as, food, clothing and rent. Just keeping up on the bills is tough. While the Covid-19 pandemic has spread fear across the globe, ive learned recently that our children are probably suffering the most out of all of us.

We must keep in mind that our children brains are like sponges. They are absorbing everything around their world and what they’re witnessing isn’t all good for them. Children are very afraid nowadays. I ‘m writing this article to remind our Moms that as a parent, especially during this time, is the most difficult responsibility we have ever endured. We must remember that our children have been in the middle of this crisis from day 1 of the pandemic. My son stated he disliked school before this pandemic and now sings a different tune. He misses his friends, the interaction with people, and he has even experienced close relatives who has past away due to Covid. Thats difficult for Children in every sense of the word. Kids does not always fully understand the severity of what we are facing, nor the importance of specifics like social distancing , etc etc. Their world has been shaking up just as much as adults, but of course we are more able to cope with things.

Our responsibility as a parent is to go slower, stop , look and listen a little bit more to our children feelings right now. Even perhaps extending a bit more leisurerly time to our kids, and by boosting up their comfort moral and confidence levels. This makes certain that we are more in tuned with their emotions, while we nurture their feelings of fear and hurt during this time of need. I have taken a notice to make sure that I am exercising more patience by listening and displaying less agitation towards my children. This is a difficult time for all and our precious little ones are also with us along the front lines during this pandemic.

This is just part 1. Please tune in again or let me know if you guys will like to read more about part 2 and why I’m telling you all,
