How I survived – Finding me!

I’m the first to admit it – Even almost ten years after he left my sight, I’m still a train wreck.  Not to take away from anyone that lost someone in a train wreck, but I am still a mess.  I’m not saying there aren’t good days.  I do have a few, now and again.  But for the whole of it – I still have moments where I feel...


Down crooked roads with hills and trees, there lies a cottage fair,
For hundreds of years its fires have burned, to warm those living there...
It stands amongst the hills and vales, proud for all to see,

Its age has only helped to prove, its mighty dynasty
Those walls housed burly oxen, with which settlers broke the land

And the times he truly cared
The times that he would make me cry
The times he held my hand
We could fight with one another
But for me, he’d...


I asked the earth, "What is the meaning of life?" and then sat down and listened quietly, and then here is what the earth said to me. Look up and see the stars that hang without help in the sky, see the sun that shines down and travelers quietly. Love the moon that is always there even when it hides shyly. See the flowers that bloom every year and the trees that unfurl their leaves. Touch...


Child loss is unimaginable unless it becomes your life. In an instant your world comes tumbling down. That is exactly what happened to me on Nov 7, 2014 when my son Brian died in a car accident. My life. My parents lives. My stepdaughter and husband lives. His friends & teachers lives. All changed. After Brian passed away and the service was over my husband was sitting on the couch...
