come into my closet, come under my bed, where you'll find me hiding,
the fear in my head.

abuse in the past, now, where do i start, making my future,
healing my heart.

crushed, and broken, falling fast-
needing comfort, make it last.

"Is that your Baptism coat???"

First: Thank you everyone for your sweet comments and prayers on behalf of my brother in law's grandson. He woke up, he is doing much better. He will have to go home to complete CAUTION and not jar his head for quite a bit of time. They say it was quite miraculous that he wasn't paralized or brain damaged further. He is still trying to recall what happened. But doing better. The family thanks us for the prayers that quite certainly pulled him and them through this. Thank you!!!

Just to clarify, YES, son #4 did leave the house this way, but how am I suppose to notice things like this so early in the morning. I am good if I get them fed, homework in bags, teeth brushed, hair combed - optional-

...So , after school I take a look at the little gangster that is wandering over to my car...I think, I wonder who that is. On closer inspection of course I noticed that he was mine!!!

No problem. We have MANY suit coats...he looked a little cute.He gets home and I ask him to put his things in his room. I follow him in and he is hanging his coat up.


"Is that your suit for your Baptism Day????"

"Yes, I wanted to show my friends what I would be wearing...."

Okay, so the only thing I am worried about now is: Do the shorts go with his coat....TOMORROW. We will see.

who I was, who I am, who I plan to be...

i am trying to heal from severe childhood sexual, emotional,
physical, and mental abuse; and abandonment.

i have good and bad days, and some days the odds seem insurmountable.
i cling to the hope that healing will come to mend the shatter pieces of my heart, mind and body.

mile 191, portions of my past have a link on the top right.
mile 191, bottoms up. hears to you and to me.

please, if you know me, just let me know you found me. i need honesty. (and please do not use personal names)
if you want to follow my story, please try to heal with me.

this is my closet, you are welcome to come in.
just know this is my refuge, healing takes place here,
maybe it will be a refuge to you too.

Success is not to be measured by the position someone has reached in life, but the obstacles he has overcome while trying to succeed.
