She’s Still Going Strong By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/11/2015 Long ago in a faraway land, I wrote about an incredible woman, http://ayoungwritercomingup.com/2007/12/05/forever-changed/. I titled it, “Forever Changed”, because at the time, she had changed my life. Now she didn’t pull me from a burning building in some grandiose act of heroism. She was just simply… Continue reading She’s Still Going Strong
Honesty By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/20/13 I began this blog to address my concerns about the relationship concerns I witnessed between parents and children. My most pressing concern was watching the increasing amount of friendships between children and parents. There was no line drawn when it came to the roles of the parent and… Continue reading Honesty
By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/3/13 I came into 2013 by myself. I sat in my recliner with the television on completely, captivated by my new James Patterson book. As the midnight hour approached, I wondered what 2013 would bring for me. And as I sat alone, I began to feel lonely. My daughters were at… Continue reading Living by Faith
A Mighty Long Way By: Mia L. Hazlett 12/11/12 As the year winds down and I take inventory of my year's progress, I must give praise to God. He has brought my family a mighty long way. And if you had asked me a year ago if I thought I would be where I am… Continue reading A Mighty Long Way
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/11/12 I ran into the store the other day and there was this woman who deserved to get smacked out of this world! Her son was maybe 4 or 5 years-old and she said, "This is my little man right here. He takes good care of his momma." What in the… Continue reading Your Son is NOT Your Man!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 5/9/12 http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/05/first-grader-suspended-for-singing-im-sexy-and-i-know-it/ I was talking with my BFF yesterday and couldn't believe what she told me. I was telling her how my daughters had made up a dance to "I'm Sexy and I Know It," by LMFAO. I don't particularly care for the song. I basically listen to my iPod in… Continue reading I HAD A KID, NOT A ROBOT!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/27/12 I was watching this movie called Trust the other night. It's by David Schwimmer and it was excellent. It was about a teen (maybe 14 or 15) who was texting back and forth with a "boy" she met on-line. They finally agreed to meet and it ended up being a… Continue reading My Roof, My Rules!
By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/27/2012 Unfortunately kids don't come with directions and you don't have to have a license to have one. A stupid person can go ahead and have a baby. In fact, two stupid people can conceive a child or two or three or.... When I say stupid, I mean they lack all… Continue reading Stupid Parents say Stupid Things
By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/19/12 Setting goals is one thing. For most it's an extremely easy task. Achieving them is another thing. That takes a whole different mindset. I've found those I've encountered that find it easy to set goals, don't have the honest game plan or intention for follow through. They make a new… Continue reading Goals, Goals, Goals
By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/15/12 Lies and kids, kids and lies. I believe they go hand in hand. For some I think it is a learned behavior. But for most kids I've met, lying is a result of fear. They fear getting in trouble with whatever they are being confronted with. Is there a… Continue reading Honest Liars
