I have been witness to several people...


From the Grieving Heart… 

I’m hurting. Something traumatic has occurred. Someone I love is gone, and they’re not coming back. ...


I often wonder where you are

can you hear me from afar 

there is nothing to gain from your loss in my eyes

others are quick to judge but they've got a grudge

people don't know the feeling of grief if they have not experienced it

how do they know if they never felt it

for me it was and is life changing 

I try not to go back to that day



Forever Young

In the past 11 months, I have experienced a lifetime of firsts. Your first birthday....after your death, Memorial Day....after your death, the anniversary of your injury in August that started us down this road, September...the week Taylor and I came to visit you. birthday....the first one without you here...last year you were...


Here I am and would give anything to hear you
I would give a big hug so tight
I would have helped you make it right
So many demons and dark issues would appear
You were so strong you never shed a tear
We were so much alike
In so many ways
I was your mini me
Up until the very next day
I'll always love you my dad my best friend
I pray and hope...


I must be dumb. I keep expecting life to be smooth, even when I’m grieving.

The Letter Every Caregiver Should Write

Life doesn't come with a manual, and neither does caring for a loved one who is dying. And yet so many caregivers I've met follow such a similar pattern of behavior, it...


If you cannot point your finger n like on the persons bday, you need to be cut out like cancer..Selfish and Arrogant is what you are, what is so sad
You won't get very far, no more running back to me
My life is a happy one and I was set free
To be happy, to laugh and live my life
You know nothing about being a wife
Too Selfish to understand
Too arrogant to be part...


I've lost some battles 

but won the war

its so important

snd so much more

I strive each day to make a new

a start to be a brand new you

I'm excited to be all that I am 

and so much more

like I said I lost the battle

but I won the war

I wake up each day 

and thank the Lord

for always showing me
