    Looking Back At It

    I was raped 7 years ago.  The memory of it comes back randomly and when it does, I play the scene over in my head.  When it does, I feel sick to my stomach.  I don't want to cry, I don't get angry, but my stomach just feels funny.  No idea why I do that. ...

    Life Was So Easy When Summer Lasted Forever...

    It Took A Turkey To Realize There Are Better Choices To Be Made! :)

    Better choices...I began thinking about choices today, not just any choices, but better choices. The Thanksgiving went something like this. First it wasn't typical as I went to my old stomping grounds to be with a family member I had not seen in a while. I decided since I was...

    I Love You

    In my young beautiful life as a child I played and found joy in most everything I touched or saw. In the uncertain years of being a teen and trying to find the place I belong I loved with fear of losing and cried with hurt of heart, yet found time inbetween to act out...
