Howdy folks!♥Having experienced a tremendous loss, losing my beloved Mother, this poem touches on the effects/repercussions of a great loss and the resulting grief. People will say, "It will get easier with time." It's been over ten years since I lost my Mom. She was my rock, my mentor, my hero, my inspiration, my motivation, a best friend whom I could trust her with anything and I could always rely on her to speak to me honestly even when I didn't necessarily want to hear the truth. She was a lady, mode... read more »

We can't help you

Grief is defined as deep sorrow, especially that caused by some one’s death, the word is originated from old French meaning burden. I don’t see my grief as a burden. My grief is an enormous part of who I am but it is not all I am. It’s not an easy or simple aspect of who I am but it certainly is not a burden. To me, a burden is something that one does not want to really deal with. I’ll gladly carry my grief, for it brings with it the little I have left of my son. Despite the pain, sorrow, fear and trauma... read more »

Routine (42)

Routine At the morning alarm I quickly pulled a T-shirt over my head. Still deeply feeling anxiety from the night before, I rushed downstairs to make my two children breakfast. “Jessie” was blaring on the TV. I knew that if I was to calm down, and anything was to be done without my screaming and tears, the TV needed to be off. It was a morning like every other morning. Routine. Soon the pleasant odor of cinnamon raisin oatmeal and freshly ground coffee filled the air. Zoe and Liam finished breakfast, b... read more »

The Depth Of Our Love

Too often we hear people talk of whether or not something has value. The slightest thing has the potential for polarization. I have long ago come to the conclusion that value is found in Jesus. And what He holds to be valuable is what has value and value that remains. I wrote yesterday that I Continue reading The Depth Of Our Love read more »

I lost my best friend.

We have all lost something in our lives. Family,Children, Pets......No matter the situation the amount of anguish you go through is bout the same. It's hard loosing something/someone you love.We are always told that we save animals lives all the time by adopting them. I have always thought it was the other way around. It's our animals that save us.I have sat here depressed about my life and the way things were going for the past a couple months. As you can tell I haven't been active blogging. I'm not goi... read more »

Reduce your stress this Christmas

Christmas is meant to be a time for kindness, fun and love. Unfortunately it is often the opposite for many people, because instead of focusing on the blessings in life, it can pose a time to focus on lack - particularly when loved ones have been lost, are sick or are no longer on speaking terms. The true meaning of Christmas is signified beautifully in this early definition found in The American magazine, vol. 28 (1889), pg 742: "to give up one's very self — to think only of others — how to bring the ... read more »

When the Most Wonderful Time of the Year Isn’t ...

For me, it was 2004. I stared at the blinking lights on our Christmas tree, almost in a trance like state. It wasnt the colors or the tree. I was shell shocked at how fast my life had changed and how much those I loved suffered. In a year wed both had job changes. My [] read more »


I found an old friend over the weekend: the twelve-string guitar I used on this song. But I've been losing more old friends than finding them lately. Some of them are coming back but others never will. And with some of them, I don't know yet. The first thing people feel when they lose someone is sadness. So at least I'm feeling things in the right order. The next, and more satisfying feeling, is appreciation. If losing someone makes you sad, there must be something about them that you're going to miss. T... read more »

How to Heal from a Breakup

You are probably reading this because like me youve experienced some form of loss or heartbreak either in the past or right now. Heartbreak doesnt have to just come from intimate partners but from our parents, friends, pets, etc. Loss is loss even if its not romantic. Ive written about this many times before but [] read more »

Kisses (39)

Kisses I looked across the room and saw a deep darkness along the wall opposite from where I stood. It was a strange, otherworldly darkness, not because the room was poorly lit, in fact just the opposite. The room was almost too bright with several 100 watt light bulbs shining brightly from the unfinished ceiling boards. As I walked closer to investigate the shadow, it appeared as if it wasn't a shadow, but instead an absence of light occupied the space. As I neared the other side of the room, I tenta... read more »

Maneuvering Disappointment

I have a fast growing friend who is going through a series of serious disappointments. He hardly sees his daughter, has a difficult relationship with his ex and finds himself recently losing a “significant other”. After months of “hearing” I knew stepping out into the waters of relationship were on the plate. I did. Yesterday, [] read more »

Insanity is… Until You See a Better Way

When I was a young man I did a lot of foolish things. I grew up in an era of fast cars and bikes and I pushed the limits everywhere I went. I caused myself and others a lot of pain. Racing, illegal stunts and more. (One of my dumbest was showing off to friends [] read more »

A Great Loss to the Blogosphere

I am sad to hear of a great loss to the blogosphere and world around it. Cyndee of has passed away. The post A Great Loss to the Blogosphere appeared first on Shh!! Mommas Writing!. read more »


It was a crisp, cool morning. The sunlight of a new day opened my weary eyes to endless possibilities. I got up from where I had been sleeping and arched my back in a deep stretch, groaning as my muscles began to relax and go back to their original positions. I wipe the gravel and dirt off my bare back and climbed over the fence. I looked up as I scratch the debris out of my scraggly beard. “Fucking Lemmings!” I bitterly mutter to myself as I watch the people safely cocooned in their shiney automobiles t... read more »

Supposed To

Supposed to I am so very proud of my children. Landmarks of development and growth occur every day. My son has started kindergarten this year. My daughter, is in second grade and wants to join the Girl Scouts. As a parent/survivor how am I to cope with this inherent almost primal desire to cut the parental umbilical cord and venture out into the world on their own? How am I to cope with a dangerous and gruesome world that cares nothing for the young and weak. How am I to cope with this reality without l... read more »

Your Life Is About To Change

I love those words. “Your life is about to change!” Your experiences will dictate how you receive those words. Are you thinking “Oh, no! Here we go again!” or are you excited, looking forward? Experience and your reality of the past determine your understanding and capture of a future. But often your reality is not [] read more »

Silence (36)

My suicide attempt plunged me into a stark reality of cold tiles, paper thin sheets, and total lack of privacy. Bed checks were every 15 minutes, so sleep was nearly impossible. All I wanted to do was to escape with my mistress, but we were never left alone together. I was in a prison, but I needed to make my walls thicker so I would not reveal me. Nobody needed to know me. I didn’t want to know me. The smile on my face and my stupid jokes belied the turmoil churning inside. I still wanted to lie to mys... read more »

An End to a Beginning - A blurb of words...

I made an announcement earlier today, that I was offered a contract on a short novella I shopped around last year. This little story has seen so much hardship. To date, I've gotten around 25-30 rejections on it, people saying "Not quite our style!". Which is fine, that's great. My work, it ain't for everyone! That's for sure. But, perseverance pays, literally $$. All it took was one guy, in one office, reading one story, my story, and that was it. This will be my fifth book, and I couldn't be more excite... read more »

Inside Crying (35)

Day after day the gaping maw of despair and confusion pursued me like a jaguar after a sickly gazelle. I felt like I was stuck in an endless loop, unable to find a way free from the pursuant. I was running out of energy to run, to fight, to heal. I had spent the last 10 months learning about how trauma affects the core of the survivors being. I learned about self worth, various coping and grounding techniques. I was finding normalcy, spending less time with my mistress and finding happiness away from h... read more »

Hidden (34)

Hidden Blissful, happy, ignorant years went by, and eventually Andy and I grew apart. We finished our courses at the community college; she moved back home to Texas and I chose to continue my studies at a local bible college. I will always remember our time together, our conversations ranging from the deep philosophical to the silly or mundane. We walked all over town discovering the local coffee scene or the art galleries in the north end of downtown Columbus Ohio. We were as close as friends could pos... read more »

Forgotten Normalcy (33)

I finished my cigarette, and climbed down from the house-sized boulder where I was sitting. By the time I returned to my car my spirit had returned from soaring high above the treetops and grassy meadows in Moraine Park. I loved this place nestled deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and the National Park by the same name. I felt renewed and at peace--a feeling I had not experienced in a long time. I gave myself to the mountains and they in return washed me clean. Whatever had caused me to flee to t... read more »


Wings My spine is poking through my chest--gore of white digestive tract, brown fecal matter and white spinal fluid co-mingling into a gelatinous pinkish ooze dripped into the blood soaked soil where I lay. I am broken and dying. The familiar cacophony of battle fades its echoing in my ear, a robin chirps in the distance. I reach down toward my mid-section and with a confused look on my face. I make a futile attempt at placing my insides back inside. One last gasp of air. One last word. One last denial.... read more »

After all, never question your pastor. (32)

After my time at Loveland Christian School I returned to public school and began to find my way in the new noisy environment of a large traditional classroom and multiple teachers. I loved the sciences and yet struggled with math, especially algebra. I found the concept of letters representing numbers confusing. My grades suffered. I began to shut down. Recognizing my struggles, I was put into an Accelerated School to catch me up and try to salvage what was left of my educational years. The middle schoo... read more »

Bichon Frise Never Can Say Goodbye Rememberance...

This is an adorable piece and is a tribute to our dog's who have passed away. I got the idea when my last dog passed away, I could not afford to take her ashes and she was the first dog I did not take her ashes, but when money is tight there's not much you can do. So I thought why not make my own remembrance of her and so I did. While I was at the doctor's office and we had to put her to sleep, through my tears I asked if I could cut a piece of her hair off. So my glass ball has a little snip of her hair... read more »

Catch Me (31)

Eventually the day came when all of the casseroles had been eaten. The grieving began to wain and turn into a throbbing ache rather than the agonizing, gut-wrenching loss. The weeks following my father’s death are grayed out in the past of forgetfulness. My first memory is of blood being drawn at the clinic near the hospital. The doctors were going to test me for mononucleosis or the “Kissing Disease” because I had been sleeping more than normal. We later found out that I didn't have mono. Instead, I was... read more »
