Celebrating the Gift of Life Life can be beautiful, inspiring, challenging, and it can be complicated at times. I believe the best points of life is to learn, grow, and understand that we are each created in God's image, formed out of His perfect love, and covered by God's grace. We Are All Part of One Global Family Part of the magnificence and appeal of God's creations are the differences  we are blessed with. No two roses are precisely the same, though they are all beautiful and worthy of our admiration....

I became visually impaired 15 years ago after retinal surgeries. Since that time I have been lost in pain, in my emotions, and my mind. I have struggled to find a way to find the parts of myself that I felt were lost. Finding Hope and Blessings One of the things that I have always loved doing is writing. Writing is how I have always processed my world. Now it is how I am finding my way back to me. A few years ago, my children gave me an...

I wanted to share a little more about why I write. I have loved words since I was a little girl. Once I learned to read, I never stopped seeking knowledge. As I grew, I found joy in books and gravitated to the library. Becoming a Writer and Poet My first poem in second grade was read out loud to the class, and I was hooked on poetry from that moment. The elementary school librarian told me about Maya Angelou, and I fell in love with her writing style, storytelling...

I choose to write because it brings structure to my mind, eases some of my chronic pain, helps me find inner peace, and it assists me in understanding what I am physically going through. In a way, writing has given me parts of my life back. Writing opened up my world and helped me find a path to hope, new purpose, and a deeper understanding of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), and my health challenges. Everyone wants to feel alive, have hope, and know that they serve a purpose...

There are days that I am unable to open my eyes due to severe eye pain and constant eye swelling. I do my best to stay motivated and uplifted. And yet, it is often during those most difficult times that I get my clearest connection with my core intuition and I feel God’s Spirit most. It is in those times when I call to Him through prayer that I find the depths of my strength. Sometimes it seems that my tears do not stop falling. Some days it is all...

Poetry / 19.10.2018

I write to provide comfort and inspiration for myself and to others. To give life meaning, offer hope, and find reasons to persevere through life's toughest journeys. I write to celebrate joy, foster understanding, reflect on life circumstances, and to define possibilities. I write the words that flow from my heart to lift my spirits and the spirits of those around me. What I have learned is that we never know what blessings our struggle will bring or who we are put here to help. Someone may be watching,...

In our culture the old and wise often speak of generational curses. I think they are more of situational learned behavior. Passed from one generation to the next. We are now living in an informed age. We have access to news, communication and knowledge that no other generation before us was privileged to have. With this privilege comes responsibility.   We must do better now that we know better. We must wash, wipe and strip away at the things that have not made us better. We must look at our...

Life is like a beautiful rose garden. Lots of variety, some surprises and many breaths taking moments. What you choose to focus on is up to you. You can see beautiful roses in different stages of life. Some are just beginning and others have been around for awhile. Each has something to teach and offer anyone willing to take it it's beauty. New blooms signify new beginnings as there is always something to be thankful for in a rose garden. Half bloomed flowers are just finding their way around...
