    Have A Little Faith

    It has been four years since I last saw my grandma. Except for that one time, last summer, when I saw her in my dreams that she was brought back to life. I don't know how old my grandma was when we lost her. I have vague memories of her but I know this pain in my heart of not...

    I have not posted on here in two weeks.

    Because of the last two weeks I've lost someone else that I love. I cannot believe how bad 2014 is. Every month brings a new death. I've never been so pessimistic against my future. I dare not challenge worse.

    I've lost many people I love in my life, both family and friends. The pain never goes away you just learn to live with the emptiness their absence leaves in your heart. Some you can at least say they lived a long and good life...but for some that is just not the case. We lost...

    Lost Him to the Sea.

    I loved him in that 6th grade, innocent way. His smile reminded me of the children I once ran the playground with. The boy who'd brush the dirt off my knee when I'd trip, even if his friends made fun of him. THAT was him. Even at 25, his presence made me kick at the tiny...

    One Month.

    Today marks one month. I gave up the glimmer that he was just too weak laying on the shore somewhere. He's where he loved being the most.   It's going to become more and more easy to talk about. It's going to become less and less difficult to breathe.   I just want...

    The Most Painful Loss

    After I lost my father I had to go live with my mother in Scotland, because she would not allow me to continue to live with my stepmother. It was a difficult transition, and I think I hated her for at least a few months. I hated school, I hated (still hate) my stepfather, I didn...
