What If?

Note: I originally posted this about a year ago but a recent conversation with a friend brought it to mind. I think I needed to ask “What if?” again. Maybe you do too … What if? It’s a question we’ve all asked. It’s a question that taunts and torments many in the dark of night … More What If?

Until I Know

As I’ve already shared, I’ve committed to posting a couple times a month over on the Live Brave blog. My first post over there was this short poem. I like to get my head around things in simple terms and I wrote that first poem to do just that. I wanted to answer the question … More Until I Know

It’s cost a lot … Many a tear stained carpet. Many sleepless nights spent wrestling. Then surrendering. Then wrestling … More I Will Not Be Silent
