I was the girl that walked around like I had it all together. I was very active in my church and was vocal about my Christian walk. I prided myself on being one of the good girls. Then it happened…I met a man that literally changed my world. He was 13 years older than me,… Continue reading I Forgive Me!
This is one of, if not the hardest post I’ve written in a while. Actually this one came much easier than the first one…I’m still not quite ready to share that one but I wanted to get some things out… These last two weeks have been crazy to say the least. I think I’ve experienced… Continue reading My Earth Shook
First Random We’re only 3 months into this year and I’ve already learned so much about myself. I think the most important thing that I’ve learned is once I get attached to someone or something I have a hard time accepting change and/or letting go. I’ve always been the type of person that gives people… Continue reading Not Overthinking; The Art of Letting Go and Letting It Be

Last year I found out that a high school friend had gotten her tubes tied and she hadn’t had any children. When I asked her about this she stated that she didn’t want to risk bringing a child into this crazy world; so when she reached an age where the doctors would perform the procedure, she went for it. I looked at her and her mother like they were crazy. What woman doesn’t want children…ever? I mean I for one don’t want any right now, but once I’m married I would love to have children. Anyhoo, every time I saw her after the procedure I felt like she cheated herself out of something so precious, so wonderful, so life changing….then I come across stories like these and I understand why she made the decision. Granted I wouldn’t go to that extreme because I think children are a gift from God, but for the first time I understood why. I’m beyond disgusted. I’ve been shaking my head the whole time trying to write this. There is so much I want to say but just reading the words on this page is making me sick. I’m done!
