Headed out...

♥ ♫ ♪ Rascal Flatts: I Won't Let Go, Album/Studio Version HQ ♥ ♫ ♪

It’s like a storm

That cuts a path

It breaks your will

It feels like that

You think you're lost

But you're not lost

On your own

You're not alone

I will stand by you

I will help you through

When you’ve done all you can do

And you can’t cope

I will dry your eyes

I will fight your fight

I will hold you tight

And I won't let go

It hurts my heart

To see you cry

I know it’s dark

This part of life

Oh, it finds us all

But we’re too small

To stop the rain

Oh, but when it rains

I will stand by you

I will help you through

When you’ve done all you can do

( From: )

And you can’t cope

I will dry your eyes

I will fight your fight

I will hold you tight

And I won't let you fall

Don’t be afraid to fall

I’m right here to catch you

I won't let you down

It won't get you down

You're gonna make it

Yeah, I know you can make it

Cause I will stand by you

I will help you through

When you’ve done all you can do

And you can’t cope

And I will dry your eyes

I will fight your fight

I will hold you tight

And I won't let go

Oh I’m gonna hold you

And I won't let go

Won't let you go

No, I won't

Dinner, Dancing and the stars...

Had a nice evening with a gentleman.  While having dinner, I got a facebook update from Jamie that he and Paula Dean's gang were dining at Uncle Bubba's, and that Hunter was taking great care of them.  We left and went to Uncle Bubba's for drinks.  Got to see Jamie and meet everyone. 

We sat outside on the deck, under the few stars we could find, having cocktails.  Uncle Bubba was outside dining with some people.  I introduced myself to him and he raved on about what a nice young man Hunter was.  Makes a Mother swell up with pride. :) 

I need to go back to sleep, didn't get much. 

Until later...

Date night tonight.

Saturday, May 20, 2011

Was it a full moon last night?  The men seemed to be crawling out from under the wood works, and I wasn't even out.  I received text messages, and emails from three different guys I have only met casually. 

Anyway, I was perfectly content at home. :)  Had a great afternoon. 

May go out tonight and see if the moon is still full.  LOL

I had a great Mother's Day today. My daughter, Kristen, her husband, Michael and their precious children, Harrison and Eleanor took me to lunch at Uncle Bubbas. Hunter was working a double, so we sat in his section. Harrison left him a nice mess. We left him a nice tip. I bet I'm the only customer he gets to eat off their plate. LOL. I got some Chanel Chance perfume. Smells great! My son, Joseph called me. In the mail was a beautiful Mother's Day photo card from the twins. I can't wait to scan it. They are adorable. I am so blessed. I have to believe that my Mother has seen those blessings. I wish the babies would have known her. I love you Mama. Happy Mother's Day to you. Love your Daughter... Paula

P.S. I also received a Happy Mother's Day from my special someone...

Awesome Daughter!

about an hour agoPaula Bacon Smoak

I pray that when my time has come, and I have gone to be with Lord, that my children will forgive me. I have made many mistakes, but one I never made was not to love them with all of my heart and soul!

Forgive u for what? Being the best mom in the world? One that I look up to everyday? The one who I fear I will never live up to with my own children? Sorry. Its unforgivable.

Holidays and Memories

With each holiday that rolls around, memories flood the mind of times past. I am thankful that I have those memories; some of which bring me joy, others bring me sorrow.

Tomorrow, I celebrate Mother’s Day. I am a Mother to three beautiful children, whom I am very proud of, and who love me deeply. I also mourn the loss of my Mother again. I can see her sweet, simple, face. She was not a girly girl like her three daughters; she was a beat down woman that had lived a hard life. I wish I could have changed that for her, but instead, I have my own share of regrets. All she ever wanted was to be loved and respected as a human being.

What gets me through the days, and years, is knowing she is now in all her glory. She is beautiful like she once was, her knees don’t hurt, she’s not short of breath, and most importantly, she’s no longer a fighting the fight as a co-dependent, to a disease that was not her own.

If I had one more moment with her, I would tell her I know she did the best she could. I would wrap my arms around her and hold her tight.  I miss her soft face, her gentle spirit, and her warm love.

God, take care of my Mother, as only you can.

Paula Smoak

Happy Mother's Day to my precious Mama. I love you, and I miss you so much!

♫ Leona Lewis - Run (Top Of The Pops)

Talking To The Moon Lyrics By Bruno Mars

Adele - Lovesong (album version)

One and Only - Adele (Lyrics)

Adele - Rolling In The Deep


I had a good time Friday night with  a good old friend, and now a new friend.  Slow danced, yeah, it was fun and sexy.  Some smooching; and omg, too much wine!  They say I had 7-8 glasses  in 6 hours.  I sure don't recall drinking that much, and have never before.  I don't know how I was standing, must less dancing.  It must have been the euphoria of the night. 

The headache Saturday morning may have been consistent with some over indulgence.  However, I don't break loose very often.  There is something so satisfying about being told how beautiful you are, and how gorgeous your eyes are, as you are being glared at by a handsome, well dressed man, that smells good.  No matter how many times you've heard it before, It's like hearing it all over, if you're in that place. <3

It was a good distraction for my heart, mind and soul.  Missing you...
