Sweat, tears, and empty bleacher seats

I played a lot of sports as a kid. Softball, hockey, lacrosse, track and field, you name it- If high school offered it, I was affiliated with it.  The deal was the better the grades, the more I could do. Boy did I take advantage of that.  Aside from the “and...

Preparation

The Governor of my state has issued a state of emergency to prepare for Irma. Honestly, I think it was a smart move. Hurricane Irma has been said to be one of the strongest hurricanes to date. It has obliterated everything in it’s path. She isn’t going to...

The worst and the best…

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster,” I remember my mother’s words...

Not your normal late night

So the man sends me a text. We need to have a chat. Now, these words usually strike fear in a man when a woman says them or at the very least, he runs down the list of things he may have done wrong over the past day or two. Most women see or hear these words and they...

I did not sign up for this

After a fatality or injury of an officer, we’ve read the comments. “He knew what he was in for. He signed up for this.” We sit and question, “why did I even click on the comments?!” while we go through a variety of different emotions...

Boredom, wood, and the man’s day off

A New Chapter

Hey y’all. You’ll be hearing a new voice for a while so i thought I’d introduce myself for my first post. No, not a cop out (see what I did there? haha), just my style. I wear many name tags but mostly go by Joan (or mom). I grew up in a public...

LIFE BEHIND THE BADGE: How do you respond?

“How do you respond? What do you say?” That was the question asked of me today by my mom. A very, very distant family member made a comment about an officer who died in the line of duty and how “he deserved to die”. Poor woman was dumfounded. Shocked. Mad. Sad....

LIFE BEHIND THE BADGE: Never a Police Wife

Police Wife. I am one. I don’t use it as part of my identity. If you ask me who I am, I’d say, a mom, volunteer, wife and full-time employee. Never a police wife. Typically, when people find out that I’m a police wife, I hear, “I’m so sorry.”, “I don’t know how you do...
