I'm pretty sure most everybody told me at one point or another that "M" would try to get back together with me. I told them all it wouldn't happen in a million years. I also said that even if he tried I would never ever even consider such a thing.... Continue reading

December has always been one of my favorite months. I've always enjoyed the traditions of the season and watching my little ones experience the holidays. This year is tough. I find myself resisting getting a tree. I am having trouble taking the kids to our favorite holidays spots. I grimace... Continue reading

I am not entirely sure what set off the loneliness. I think it was a combination of things that finally got to me. In the past, I would go stuff my face. I refused to do that last night and just felt the pain. I realized that feeling those emotions... Continue reading

I cannot imagine being a part of creating human life and not believing in God. My four children are proof to me. I see God in every single moment of my life. If it wasn't for my belief in God, I could not have survived most of my life. I don't think going to church makes a person a good or bad Christian. A lot of frauds are sitting in church pews. I also do not think organized religion is a bad thing either. I don't think God is a joke. I don't think Jesus Christ is a dirty word. I am thankful that one of the many gifts Mom gave to me was my belief in God and my love of Jesus Christ. Her belief in the Lord was what helped her survive as many years as she did. "I would rather live my life as if there is a God and find out there is not, than live my life as if there is no God and find out there is." (Albert Camus) At the risk of sounding nuts, I have been blessed enough to be shown proof that there is life after death and I am convinced that is reality. You are letting Dad and Grandpa cloud your heart and mind. Do you know Grandpa insisted on accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour on his death bed? You have seen enough of our relatives die to know there has to be something more than just "turning off the lights" haven't you? I'd think a little harder about this now instead of when you are faced with your own mortality. This is what I tell my kids: Close your eyes. Step outside of you. Everything that you think, feel, love and know...that is your soul. How can we have souls if we have no God? Just something to think about from the sister that loves you.

Thanks, Darlene. I've been writing a memoir about my life with my mom. I figured this was good writing practice.

I always joked around that if we had a another baby, my husband would run away from home. I really didn't think he would when our youngest was just six months old. I guess the joke was on me. The pregnancy was difficult, the labor quick and scary. My first... Continue reading
