A few years ago, I had a dream that my mother died. I woke up from this dream with my heart racing, my body covered in sweat, and I was shaking. It was around 3:00 in the morning, and I could not go back to sleep. I went to the living room and tried to … Continue reading It Was Just a Dream
I have a headache. Not just a little headache that you get from a stressful day, or not eating or drinking enough water. This is a good old fashioned migraine, and I'm so tired of getting them. I've had them since I was about nine years old. At first, my parents didn't believe that they … Continue reading Migraines Are For the Birds

Back in February, when I heard that you were coming to our city to perform, I knew I had to be there. My husband and I talked, and we decided we could not let our son Noah miss the opportunity to see you live either. Then, when I heard that it was an acoustic show, … Continue reading Dear Chris Cornell,
I didn't even get an invitation to my step-brother's wedding. I don't know why I was kept off of the guest list, and this has left me sad and confused. The more I think about it, the sadder I seem to get. My dad married his mom almost 20 years ago, and with that union came … Continue reading Heartbreaking Reality

It has been so long since I have written anything! It seems like I got caught in a whirlwind in life for about the past month, and haven't had time to rest. It's a good thing to be busy, though. My biopsy of the growth in my thyroid came back non-cancerous. The doctor is just … Continue reading Life gets busy!
In 2009, I was referred to the ENT (Ear Nose and Throat Specialist) because I had a bump in my neck that my doctor couldn't quite figure out. He did a CT scan, and found that the bump in my neck was fine, but I had a growth on my thyroid that was concerning to … Continue reading The Unknown
In an instant I changed for you, And pushed back any dream I had. My goals were now to keep you safe, And keep us all afloat. Little did I know the damage, Once the smoke all cleared. Never did I imagine Everything I'd done was against myself.
Prompt of the day - Window : My husband left today for a business trip. This trip was different, however, because this time he was flying to his destination instead of driving. It makes me nervous when he flies, more so than when he drives, for many reasons. The main reason is that if the … Continue reading The Top Of The World

You will serve one day in detention after school, and hopefully never be there again. I wanted to make sure that you knew how much I love you.

We have three wonderful children, and we are not having any more. Really. Not even if I wanted to. The fact that we were actually able to have our third child is a miracle in itself. A year prior to becoming pregnant with her, I was told it would be nearly impossible to get pregnant … Continue reading A Last Set of Firsts

I feel so blessed as I enter this new year. I truly have so much to be thankful for, and realize that I take so much for granted everyday. I am one who tends to see the negative, and focus on how things could be better. When, in actuality, things are pretty great, even in … Continue reading Looking Forward to 2016

There is a dark cloud coming down, faster than ever before. Its presence made known to all around, even before knocking on the door. It's a prison of sorts, for the innocents, those who have lived it before. It will take and take, until one suffocates, leaving to search for some more. Hold … Continue reading Once Before
In light of yesterday's horrific events in Paris, everything seems so trivial now. The grocery shopping, the bills that need paid, the laundry, etc. Nothing seems to match the scale of importance as all of the lives senselessly taken yesterday. I have the same feelings that I had on 9/11. Same fear, same anger, same … Continue reading Terror Among Us
I had to go to the ER last night. It's actually quite a stupid thing. The short of it is, I was eating a cheeseburger for dinner. I was also talking to my son while eating, and ended up choking on a large piece of burger.....(lesson : don't talk with food in your mouth). Instead … Continue reading Everyone Has a Battle
