Thank you to a long lost friend

I'm trying to think of something inspiring to say. What can you say when all is lost and only grief fills the gaps? I got an inspiring email (and donation woot woot) from an old friend of Andy's (and mine) this morning. I think it was around 2am. Sometimes it takes a lot

Second guessing

Jumping into the whole God world head first is proving to be difficult. I am not ‘Godly’, I am just Sarah. A wife, businesswoman, car lover, dog lover, writer, artist, and pianist. I crochet and enjoy gardening. I do not play with kids and I am not a teacher of kids.

Prison

I am being dangerous and typing outside by the salt air. Most likely damaging my laptop.. sometimes you have to sacrifice precious things to get more. I like the sound of the waves anyways and inside its muffled. So I’m laying outside trying to get over my night of nigh

Faith Walk

This morning I woke up from a bad night of druggy sleepiness and a heart grieving my Andy. It was early morning and I was just in time for my first sunrise. I finally saw the sunrise over the ocean! I splurged and made scrambled eggs with tortilla shell for a wrapper.

This is a confession of a young widow who sometimes just can’t do things she used to do when married. My weakness of grief won this afternoon again. It happened last week too where the same trigger annihilated me.  Meet the adversary:   This jeep has bec
