I think there was a time, way back, when life wasn’t sugar coated. When not everyone made the team and you didn’t get a participation trophy. Winners are winners because the cream rises to the top. Today I’m feeling guilty. Awards assembly day. The day when children who have worked hard deserve to be honored with recognition. Should every child receive an award? If everyone got one, then it doesn’t become special or coveted. It almost becomes a joke, Best Shoe Tie-er; Least likely to Dribble at the Water Fountain…..give me a break. Awarding everyone is like saying “its okay to be mediocre…..average is fine……just get by and try not to excel” I’m sad that kids get their feelings hurt and I’m more sad that parents get theirs hurt worse. But life can not be sticky sweet all the time.

I’m Angel, a.k.a. Rocket Surgeon, and these are my chronicles. I love writing and I believe our stories should be shared, so here you’ll find anecdotes of my life, loves, worries, fears, joys, and experiences.
I blog about my mishaps and adventures as a wife, mommy, auntie, wanna-be writer, teacher, Texan, country/city/mountain girl, cereal killer and Jesus-freak.
A few things you might discover about me:
•Jesus is my everything; without Him I am nothing, but with him I can do all things
•My family makes this world a better place for me to live in
•I adore chickens, the live ones, although the cooked ones aren’t too bad either
•I have 2 dogs: Grace and Ozzie. And one cat: Rocky Muffin
•My dream job would be to raise chickens and write best sellers
Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I know your time is valuable and I honor you for spending a few moments here with me. I hope you find something to brighten your day, lighten your load, make you chuckle and remind you of the good in the world.
