it's a sad day

I can't believe that Trump has been elected for office. It feels horrible to know what he represents and yet he will be the leader of our country.

Today my daughter had a conversation with a coworker about the election and its outcome.
She was asked how she felt about it and her response was this:

"The realization that I am surrounded by people who hate me because of my skin color and hair, and the fact that you will inherently alway be more privileged than me, and a white man more than you is the most disappointing moment thus far in my life."

It pains me as a mother to know my daughterfor feels like this. All women should be equal, yet we are not treated equally........ we work hatd to earn a living yet we make less than men.  Racism is alive and well and hate is prelavent. Trump has brought this out front and center.....

It's all about the candy

I love Halloween, the costumes, decorations and most of all the candy. Last night we had a rush of trick or treaters come to the door. They were all cute in their costumes, especially the very young ones.   I had a special visitor last night. The previous occupant's daughter of the house with her young son.  The little boy wanted to come to grandma's house but looked confused when I came to the door, and I could see the disappointment on his face as he looked inside the house and nothing was familiar. He actually reminded me of my oldest son when he was that age, cute and sensitive.  I really wanted them to come inside because he was curious of the fish tank but his Mom was ready to move on.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I should of  just handed over the whole bowl of candy to him.....
