I wanted the four of us to be together for Father's Day, knowing it was going to be a difficult day. Of course that was not the Lord's plan. Z was taken to Texas for work, Demi and I were in Portland for softball, and Bent was home working. 

All weekend I checked on the...

"How are you doing?' Before I can even answer it is usually followed up with, "you look great." So do I answer how I am, or just say thanks for the compliment. In a millisecond my head is filled with; do I really tell them how I am, will they be able to handle what I h...

I would like to welcome everyone to my new location. I am excited to continue my story right here!

Let me give you a little of what is behind the name. I pondered for months, about what to call my site. I sent numerous name ideas to my name consultants, being shot down...

Grab a Kleenex, or maybe a punching bag! In this read you might need one or the other.; in fact you just might need both.

So the 5th and 6th of each month seem to stick out in my heart. Although Doug passed on the 6th of November, the 5th was an extremely hard day. So as the 6 month mark came near, I could feel emotions building. So yesterday morning (the 5th) I jumped in my car and drove...

March 26, 1993 I made the best decision of my life by becoming Douglas' wife.

This anniversary will be the most difficult. As my heart is so broken, I remember the love that held it together for so man...

I jumped in the car after the basketball tournament my AAU team played in this past weekend. Grabbed my phone and realized I didn't have that one person to call. To say, "you wouldn't believe this team." "My girls played amazing!" Tears filled my eyes. 

Let's be real, a...

I was asked the other day, Are you not so happy to see 2015 come to an end, wasn't it the worst year of your life?  Quickly I responded, no not the worst year.  I found that question to stir a lot of emotions in me.

As I say good-bye to 2015 I have tears running do...

In the darkness of my grief, I am being given bits of hope put back in my heart. 

It seems to come to me just at the right time. My days are still filled with many tears, the pain I have feels as if it will never end, and my broken heart I have decided just might stay b...
