I don’t enjoy…

Friday, June 29th, 2007

I really don’t enjoy having my eyes dilated. I had my bi-annual eye exam today. The glaucoma test is bad enough, but to then dilate my eyes. You’d never believe I’ve been a contact wearer for 15 years. I hate having people mess with my eyes.

Twin Tornadoes

Monday, June 25th, 2007

(Originally published by Nattie on August 18, 2003)
Twin tornadoes touch down in Small Town USA, Indiana.
Their efforts seemed to be concentrated on a small area in the Country Club Estates. Namely apartment J79. There, destruction ripped a path from their bedroom to their parents’ room, leaving pictures of cats drawn in Sharpee on white paint.


That Someone

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

(Originally published by Nattie on August 16, 2003)
Something I wrote awhile back…
Sometimes I feel
Like my very breath
Is being squeezed out of me
Like being held under water
Where is that someone
Who can breathe life back into me


Is that all there is?

Thank you (have I said that before?) for continuing to visit NattieRoseWrites.com. I had no intention, I can assure you, of becoming a blogger when–less than a month ago–I posted my first update in my daughter’s stead.


A Card from a Lifelong Friend

Monday, June 18th, 2007

I owe a debt of gratitude to each of you for your good wishes and wonderful comments in Nattie’s memory. I also received the following by “snail mail,” and now pass it along to you, her friends worldwide . (Thanks to Joy; credit to Hallmark)–Nattie’s Daddy


Ashes to ashes, dust to dust…

Friday, June 15th, 2007

The sky was clear, the sun wa bright and the grass was dusty. A small group of Carters, Wootens and Yorks gathered this morning to say our ceremonial goodbyes to Nattie’s earthly remains. Her grandmother Julia read the following words:


Letters from Mommy’s journal

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

(Written the day before her surgery; Natalie passed on a week and a half later.)
Dear Jonathan,
You are my first-born, my precious baby boy. Yuo have gotten so big I can’t believe you are almost as tall as me or that you’ll be 9 this July.
I want you to know that I love you. I know I haven’t always been the best mommy but know this much–no matter what–I will always love you.
You are such an amazing little guy. Never stop dreaming, imagining or being creative. I know that if you want to you can be a great artist someday. You already are an artist.
Believe in yourself. I do.
Again, I love you. Never forget that.


Dear Anna,
My sweet baby girl–being your mom has been a joy.
I am only sorry that I’ve been sick so much of your life. I’m sorry that we haven’t cuddled more, that you haven’t read more to me. You are such a smart little girl. Yes, I called you a little girl because even though you are almost 7–you are my baby girl.
You are going to do just fine–in school and in life.
Never forget that mommy loves you, and so does God.
Butterfly kisses and hugs,

Happy? Birthday

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

I just had to mention–if for no other reason than to try to get a little bit of this selfish grief for my loss of Natalie’s earthly presence off my back–I also have to suffer another birthday, today. (No flowers, please!)‹
