Lynda Carter ain't got nothin' on Mama A.

Stand up tall on the couch cushions and be brave. 

Pull those knee socks high.  

Put your hands on your hips.  

Tilt that head up and give 'em the business.  

And 30+ years later, make sure you remember how awesome you are.

Fall quiets with anticipation.  

A slow hush falls to the earth as it prepares for a long winter's sleep.   The leaves announce the coming of the end (and the promise of a new beginning) as their colors change from greens into brilliant shades of reds, oranges, yellows, and browns.  The oppressive humidity finally leaves the South and a crispness to the air arrives ushering in a slight chill.  

The harvest is picked and collected from the fields, leaving rows and rows of stalks and dirt.  The sun gives everything a breathtaking glow as it sets over the workers.  The families rake and collect and gather the fallen leaves.  

Sometimes only to gather them again.  

And again.  

I could cry.  Buckets.

And even the earth knows and proclaims and cries out that Death must occur before New Life can truly begin.  

It knows it must lay everything down in order to release the old from its hands and branches before the new can take root and flourish and can begin living with a renewed purpose. 

Molly.  5 years old.
And full of possibility.

31 days of Mama A: October 2014.

Hello my little darlings and welcome to 31 days with Mama A!  

I'm so exciting to take part of the 31 days challenge with The Nester & Co. We are all committing to post something every single day on our blogs for the entire month of October.  It's going to be quite the feat, but have no fear, Mama A is here and ready for the challenge.  

If you're new to the Seriously. blog, you may not know exactly what you are getting into this month.  Mama A is a southern lady and she's not afraid to speak her mind on all things common sense.  It appears that a lot of the good folks in this world have failed to properly learn the basic rules of living and Mama A believes it is her privilege and her duty to bring them up to speed with everyone else.  

Here's a link to her last post on Courtesy. if you'd like to get a taste of what she's like. 

Mama A tends to say the things we'd all like to say, but with a sprinkling of love and a pinch of sass.  No topics are off limits with Mama A and she's going to have a lot to say in this coming month.  See you on October 1st! 

Love and smooches, 

Mama A.
