SoCS~ Musical

I use to watch and love musical movies. They’re my favorite, however at one point I begin to find them, annoying. I never understood what happened or the why. It’s not until last year when my granddaughter introduced me “The Greatest Showman”. Of course, I check the reviews and they’re good. We watched the musical together and I fall in love with the movie and the songs. It became my granddaughter favorite musical and also mine. Her dream is to visit New York to watch “Hamilton”.

Later, I remember some of my favorite musicals and I’ll like to share some with you. Here are a few of the ones I love also I’ll like to share the ones I didn’t like that much.

4- My Fair Lady (1964)
5- Mary Poppins (1964)
6- Grease (1978)
7- Little Shop of Horrors (1986)

8- Singin in the Rain (1952)
9- Willy Wonka & The chocolate factory (1971)

SoCS~ Magic!

Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ma.” Use it as a word or find a word with “ma” in it. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

Magic…It’s the perfect “word” for the holidays. It’s what I always intend for my family and myself.

As December 1st the countdown to Christmas has begun. Can you imagine the pressure of the holidays on a person who suffers from depression? Every year, all I want it’s my family to have the best Christmas. It’s not about the gifts, it’s about being together and creating memories.

How can I find the magic of the holidays? Where is it? I know they showed it in the movies, however in real life where is it? For sure it’s not at the mall. I went shopping and some of the people were pushy, was cranky, and cutting in line like it was the last day on earth.

This is my favorite holiday; however, the pressure is already showing up. By the way, I’m almost done decorating my home and like every year the house is looking as winter in wonderland. Yes, I overdo it again.

My daughter has suggested to battle my depression with doing something for myself. She asks what was my dream when I was growing up. What it’s the one thing I always wants to accomplish. I didn’t have an answer. It’s been too long since I’ve my priorities straight. I’ve raised my children and then help with my grandkids so my goals and dreams has been postponed. And now I’ve an empty nest I feel my life has no purpose. So, what do I really want? Beside of having a happy family. I can’t believe nothing comes in my mind.

Should I get a new hobby, should I own my small café & book store that I always want, or should I keep writing short stories and put them out there instead of collecting them in my computer.

I’ll love to feel the Magic of Christmas and live in a magical world. However, it doesn’t work that way.

One-Liner Wednesday ~ To my Daughter!

“One of the greatest gifts I’ve ever gotten is my daughter.” ~ Ace Frehley




This past weekend I went to my daughter’s wedding. It was just a  small wedding, celebrated in Sedona Arizona. They choose the mountains where they met and they fall in love. They got engaged a little bit over a month. I thought the wedding would be next year, however they wanted, now.  I’m happy for her and for my son- in law who I see as another son. I’m thankful for having him as part of our family and for making my daughter, very happy.
