MY DAY IN COURT: THE SHORT VERSION

Yesterday was my day in court. It was such a moving and exciting time that I am not ready to think about it or talk about fully...yet. I will in time talk about it. In a nutshell, I was sentenced to 30 days in prison, 5 months home confinement and 3 years probation. This was a blessing. This was way better than I or my Attorney hoped for. I will talk about the day in court and all the drama and excitement later. And yes the local papers have me and my family plastered on the front page. And I don't give a damn. I know what I am facing. So this is my Theme for the moment--this song from Michael Buble--I don't know how to add music to my bog so I haven't linked it, but here are the lyrics...yep, this is how I'm feeling!

MICHAEL BUBLE LYRICS

"Feeling Good"

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom on a tree
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That's what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me

And I'm feeling good

God is good! I am happy to hear that you are content with the decision. May you come out of this even stronger than you are today.

Thank you! I know there are a lot of folks who believe and feel that I should go to jail for years and years. But you know, I can't help that. I can only live my life to the best of my ability. It truly is anew day.

Thank you new space team. I am beginning to feel like a normal person again. Stop by again.

Yay! A second chance, and a chance to be there for your children and kick-start your life again. You were lucky to have a forgiving judge, but they were luckier.

You know, I'm an adoptive mother too. People often think of adoptive parents as saving some unfortunate child. Too often, it is that child or those children that save us. They become the glue that holds our lives together in our darkest moments, that forces us to be and act in optimistic ways that otherwise would be too difficult.
