Thought for the day


Love, Life and Lessons Learned

    My life as it is now feels like a dream sometimes. A year ago I couldn’t even picture a life different from the one I was living. Honestly my tear stained face felt like a permanent fixture, one I would live with until the day I died. My broken shattered heart cut my […]

Farewell 2015 & Hello 2016

It feels odd sitting here typing words after such a long hiatus. Although the speed of my fingers and the sounds of the keys makes me realize it has been way too long. As usual I sit here and ponder the year that is coming to a close and begin to dream and plan for […]


Maybe it’s Time to Look At Death Differently
