Have you ever played Would You Rather? It’s this silly game that prompts you to answer the craziest questions making a choice between two unfavorable responses. Both choices are crappy and usually require you to pick which is less gross, less painful or less devastating. Either way, a sacrifice has to be made and you… Continue reading Forced Choices
There are times when you notice things about yourself that seem a bit foreign. They’re things that you don’t recall doing or thinking… ways of being that seem unlike the you, you remember. Maybe you’re more harsh than you were before. Maybe you’re more sentimental. Maybe you’re more standoffish and aloof… maybe you can’t really… Continue reading Who Are You Now…?
Have you ever wondered just what in the hell was happening in your life? Like seriously, what in the world is going on with this thing?! Sometimes, it seems like things are going just as you’d like them too. Other times, it seems like somebody is playing a cruel joke on you and you’re left… Continue reading Walking Forward, Backwards…
Sometimes it's really hard to be vulnerable. It's difficult to share your deepest darkest fears with someone else and allow them to see the cracks in the facade you maintain everyday.

Some people focus on setting better boundaries for themselves while… Continue reading APR’s (Angel Parent Resolutions)
I don’t know about y’all but sometimes, I just feel missing. Absent from a space. Like I’m either not really there or I don’t want to be there, or like who I thought I was, just simply doesn’t exist anymore. Occasionally I get a glimpse of me but it’s never quite clear. I’m never around… Continue reading Where Did You Go? Missing Me

I saw you yesterday! I thought I was mistaken so I stared a little harder but it was you. Boldly displayed, shining for the whole world to see. It brightened my day and I realized Just how long it’s been since I’ve seen...you. How long has it been? A few weeks? A few months, maybe?… Continue reading Smile
Weeks…. Months… years… decades even… Time has passed since your loss. Maybe you’re still a wreck. Maybe the days have gotten a little easier as they drag on. Maybe you’re somewhere in the middle. Maybe you can look at the old ultrasound photos… the “mom-to-be” cards… the pictures after they were born and maybe, maybe… Continue reading When Is It Time?
