SANGRY

Yep, that’s right, I’m sangry. As a widow, there are lots of days that can’t be adequately described. So what do we do?? We just make up words! So yeah, I’m in sangry mode. I’m sad. I’m angry. Sangry started on Sunday awhile back as I was thinking back to what Sundays used to look… Continue reading SANGRY

The Struggle is Real

There are things that I hate to admit; mainly because of how I am "supposed" to think and what I have learned to believe. Those aren’t the things that I would typically write about. But, I realize something... If I only write about the things that would "sit well" with others, I’m not writing with… Continue reading The Struggle is Real

Hurt n’ Church

I read a FB post about how important it is for Christians to be careful how they treat non believers; especially when it comes to correcting wrongdoing. I have to say that it is also as important to be mindful of how we treat other Christians. Just as much damage can be done there!  I… Continue reading Hurt n’ Church

Kids n’ Grief 

As incredibly difficult as it has been to deal with pain and loss as an adult, I cannot even begin to imagine what it is like for children. Sure, I see the ways they struggle and I’ve been there to witness how the void left by the loss of their Father effects them. But, I… Continue reading Kids n’ Grief

Purpose N' Pain

There was a time in my life as a young woman when I felt as though I had gone through more in my life than some ever would in the entirety of theirs. What gave me hope in that was the fact that I somehow, deep down in my heart, believed that God would place… Continue reading Purpose N' Pain

As a widow and a single Mom to two teenagers, I try my best to keep a positive outlook and show only the fighter in me to the rest of the world.

Glimpse of Grief

Silence. It can be deafening. Sometimes it’s a choice. Have you ever been so consumed with your thoughts that you can’t think straight? Have you ever been weighed down so badly by the weight of hurt and grief that it’s difficult to pick yourself up? Have you ever been surrounded by people yet had the… Continue reading Glimpse of Grief

TIME

I wrote that 5 years ago. Although much has changed; so much of that is still the same.  It's crazy to look back and see how far I've come.  "They" say time heals all wounds. Does it really?? Most people don't understand that no matter how much time goes by, you don't stop loving someone… Continue reading TIME

Some of these fears are: The fear of failure The fear of rejection The fear of condemnation We feel like we have to paint a picture for others that we have everything under… Continue reading FEARS that lead us to HIDE who we are
