My Whirlwind Year

My Whirlwind Year

Another School year has come to a close and what a whirlwind this year has been! I can’t believe my family begins Summer Break as of TOMORROW, when I am just barely adjusting to the fact they started the school year at all.  I somehow turned 42 a few days weeks ago, yet I specifically remember turning 41 just a couple months back. Apparently I’ve started a Boutique.  In my HOUSE!  NO idea how I managed to do THAT! And…

The Ugly Side of My Grief

The Ugly Side of My Grief

Grief.  It envelopes me like a velvet cloak, it’s dark, heavy weight covering every part of my life. I try to escape it.  For short moments of time, at least.  But it doesn’t last.  I try to flip it.  I find ways to make it more positive, uplifting, a potential for growth.  But it just drags me back, to the darkness of long unresolved childhood scars and memories. Since I was 12 years old, my relationship with my mom has been…
