The Purpose of Life

“On the street I saw a small girl cold and shivering in a thin dress, with little hope of a decent meal. I became angry and said to God, “Why did you permit this? Why don’t you do something about it”. For a while God said nothing. That night he replied quite suddenly, “I certainly […]

[Written February 2016] Today was a long day. It was about 6pm when I finally left the office and when I got into my vehicle I saw the letters and packages that I had delayed in sending. It was cold tonight and I wanted nothing more than to go home, put on comfy clothes, and […]

Be real, not perfect

I can’t remember how many times you looked me in the eyes and asked me if I was okay. How many times I smiled back at you and responded, ‘Yes’. On the outside, I looked fine. But on the inside, the pain was burning me alive. And I wondered, if you could tell. I was […]

To Persevere

How I have adopted is something that continues to be a work in progress. There is no formula or answer. How do you go from being afraid to persevering? My friend, I’ll tell you… When I was first diagnosed I was afraid to talk about it, afraid to communicate it to anyone. I didn’t want […]

I wish that it could be different…

I spent a lifetime building a wall around myself. I didn’t want to be found, I didn’t want to be heard. I wanted to go through this life unnoticed. I didn’t want you to hear everything I was feeling, I didn’t want you to see everything I was trying to shelter you from. But you […]
