18 years ago 9-11

I wrote a post yesterday about death and how I always wonder what will be my cause of death.Cause Of Death

I can’t prevent the tears from streaming down my face as we take this day to remember 9/11 and praise all of our heroes. My heart is so heavy right now.

I can’t help but wonder how they all felt while this tragedy was taking place. I’ve read so many articles in the last 18 years concerning the families that were left to deal with the death of a loved one. I’ve seen so many pictures as well. Read More

Cause Of Death

Whenever I hear about someone that has passed away, I immediately feel grief take over my entire body. I feel paralyzed!

You Can’t Rescue The Boy In The Man “Part 2”

My friend continued to tell me that she thinks the blame his mother put on him about his father’s disappearance act made him the most miserable. He couldn’t control the men that his mother let slip into his bedroom at all times of the night. But he thought if he could be more like his father than he could come back and his mother’s love would be present again. If he could control how he acted around his father, then that’s all that mattered. Read More

Let it Be…​ Day 1

How often do we think about others and put ourselves on the back burner? How often do we say I will worry about my health, appearance, happiness tomorrow? My kids and spouse come first, and I’ll take care of me next. But what happens when you’re next just doesn’t arrive? Read More
