Now a days, I know the guy that got killed in the helicopter crash, I know the 14 year old girl that got hit by a car driven by a man who wanted to kill himself but killed her instead.  I know the guy that got a blood clot and died in his wife’s arms.  I know the mom who just died of lung cancer leaving 5 kids behind the oldest only 14.  I know the little boy who drowned in the swimming pool. I know the parents of the boy who killed himself. And I could go on.  These are all people who have shared a life with me and mine. ...more

Horse Shows After My Father's Death

A Sign from My Dad?

I look for signs from my dad every day, and I pray for him to tell me that he is watching over me every night. While it may be farfetched, I need to know that he is out there somewhere and not simply gone forever....more

This post has taken me a while to finish and here’s why; I have several friends who have lost children to cancer in the last month. One child was the same age as my youngest and that friend and I have been pregnant together for all our kids. That one hit home, still makes it hard to breathe and I wake up every day praying for her and her sweet family.
