To say that life is challenging is an understatement. No one knows what life is going to bring tomorrow or next week or next year for that matter. All we can do is hold on to today and give it all of our energy. Now I have to admit that I didn’t always have this outlook.

I remember before she died, her tone became harsh and other times silent with me. I can’t blame her because, at this point, she knew she was dying. She knew that her body was finally failing her. She battled with diabetes and went through dialysis for over 10 years. She had her leg amputated and learned how to walk again. When life kept throwing rocks at her, she caught them and laid them down softly out of her path. Read More
Throughout our life, we will have to fight against our inner weaknesses. We all have flaws, but very few of us are willing to admit it and get real with ourselves.
I can be opened and honest with you all today and tell you that I am a very closed person. I give you one chance to show me that you are an inconsistent person, and then I cut you off. But it’s like I have a sickness. I not only silence your voice or your existence, but I can pretend that you never existed. Then I move on. Read More
