Talking to my rainbow baby about her sisters.

We focus so much on mourning.
A Tattoo of Memories
Seven hours of pain later, I have a new tattoo.
A Missed Opportunity
Is it worth giving up a potentially uncomfortable moment for so many moments of regret later?
Consistent and Persistent
I'm not going anywhere.
My screams are combined with a sobering numbness.
Words in the World

Stop Publishing Garbage on the Internet
I'm offended by crappy writing.
My Eyes, My Work
I've realized how much can change in a minute. What if something happens to my sight?
Adopting a Cat
I know. I can't adopt a new cat every Christmas. But maybe just one more...
Someone I Used to Know
This person left a hole in my life.
I'll continue to write because grief deserves to be seen.
An Unexpected Path in Life
I spent the morning thinking about my grandma.
I've got to balance "getting better" with "getting caught up."
Singing Amazing Grace
I felt like I couldn't breathe under the enormity of grief.
The End of Community
Losing a community is hard, especially when the loss is not by choice.
Back in the Hot Room
It felt good to return to my yoga practice.
sharing my story
