I Need to Cry

Life can be so overwhelming. Being a person of faith does not eliminate that. You can believe and be overwhelmed. I didn’t know that. For years, I thought projecting an attitude of, “all is well,” was what I was supposed to do. However, all I did was mask my trauma and hide myself from theContinue reading “I Need to Cry”

The Choice is Yours

Life is full of choices. I recently told a client that from the time we wake up in the morning, we are inundated with the task of deciding. Some will argue that they don’t make any choices but trust me, you do. The last five weeks have been replete with absolute acts of terror thatContinue reading “The Choice is Yours”

What Now?

It is amazing that anyone can identify any specific area of concern. There is so much going on—-so much sensory going on that it would be a sincere feat to find ANYONE that is not experiencing some form of trauma.

I contemplated posting a blog to try to calm the nerves of the public, but I didn’t—I couldn’t find the words. So, IContinue reading “The Little Things”

Broken in Two Pieces

My husband is not well today, so I am taking care of him. Since he seems to be sleeping well, I decided that it would be a good day to be artsy. As I was looking through my crafting supplies (and cleaning out the containers) I kept finding pieces of things: ribbons, earrings, bracelets, fabricContinue reading “Broken in Two Pieces”

“…but did YOU die?”

There is a running joke in our family about my husband’s driving. When we are all in the car, we are holding tightly to seatbelts and door handles as he carelessly rounds corners and navigates down the road.  No matter where we are going, it is always like taking a stress test and I passContinue reading ““…but did YOU die?””
