Better Off Alone

Do you ever decide to go out on a limb, try to make new friends, allow yourself to be completely open with someone, only to be pushed away? It's not even something you can control. It wasn't intentional. It just didn't work out like you had hoped. Why was it so easy to make friends… Continue reading Better Off Alone


Calm After the Storm

You know that feeling after you've just had a really good cry? After you've calmed down? Like everything is fresh.  You feel lighter.

I am exhausted! But I couldn't be happier!… Continue reading God Made Us All Unique

This time of year is always the hardest for me.  Three years ago, the last 4 months I worked in EMS, were some of the hardest days I've yet to encounter.  Every year since, when the weather starts to get a little warmer, the birds start chirping again, and everything is just starting to come… Continue reading Befriending Death
