Moment by Moment

I say it all the time, but I don’t think everyone really gets what I mean by it. I know my friends that are survivors do. We have faced our own mortality, up close and personal. We live moment by moment. We know how to hide it all, the one thing that women get over […]

January 22, 2016

I started working on putting the next book together. It is going to be so different than what I thought I was going to write. I had to stop reading fairly early in, the pain it raised in me was to much. The memories vary, some make me sad, others angry, but the odd ones […]

A new year and a good start…

Welcome to 2016 a whole new start on a new year of unknowns. I get to start the new year having seen my gy doc who treats the endometriosis and adnomiosis. We have put surgery as a last resort, thanks to my genetic panel being negative across the board! Not even one uncertain, what a […]


A friend asked people to list the things they have done for liberty. I tried to and realized I have gotten a lot done in a few short years, but it was always in me. What we leave this world with is our legacy. What impact did we have and does any of it last? […]

Relief and Gratitude

This never-ending road has its ups and downs, and the downs can be very difficult to handle. Often I feel like a burden, having to ask for many things. That has changed for me, and though there are times I feel it and probably will in the future, it has to do with changing perspective. […]

Sometimes It’s a Little Too Much

I know I just can’t take anymore hits. I’m a month in to waiting for the next set of tests. A negative result is SO wanted. A positive one will mean more surgery, and a need to test my son. The waiting is painstaking. Spent most of yesterday crying, it came in waves. Just so […]
