Until my teen years came along…
May 15, 1983
Until my teen years came along… Filled with so many strange emotions. The season of sunshine and sprinkles soon ended. I found myself in an unplanned pregnancy. Filled with even more emotions to deal with. I just did what I felt that I needed to do. I terminated the pregnancy in hopes… That I would be able to start a new life. Well, this new life was the opposite of what I thought it would be. It was filled with pain, Anger, sadness, guilt and grief…. You can see those emotions in my face… At a time that I should have been celebrating!! Instead, I was in AUTUMN/Fall was more like it.Read more

It was a rough fall season, then WINTER came along. It allowed me time to self-reflect, discover who I was as an adult.

February 15, 2001
It was followed by a spectacular SPRING… In Sugar Land, TX…I realized my calling in the world. I started sharing my story of my abortion healing experience. Once I started sharing my secret…mostly at pregnancy centers. Other women and men would then open up to me about theirs. This blossomed into such a beautiful time in my life… I had the opportunity to speak my voice and my truth so that Others could find their voice and…Read more

Then AUTUMN finally came and it brought some relief…
October 13, 2012
Then AUTUMN finally came and it brought some relief… Just enough to let me see the real damage going on. I had to access what was left…literally… I had to pick up the pieces and figure out… How I was going to be able to find the strength to move on. I even tattooed “Stay Strong” on my right forearm… As a constant mantra to focus on…ME. It helped me hold on…it was my anchor of HOPE. I realized that I had lost myself in the storm of life. I felt like my identity had flown away in the strong winds. I did not know who I was, what I liked, what I wanted.Read more
So, when Mr. WINTER came along…

So, when Mr. WINTER came along… He brought in some fun, light, snow flurries. I hibernated inside, reflected, discovered who I was again. I cleared out most physical items from my past. I made room for the NEW ME and space for NEW MEMORIES. I learned how important it is to take care of myself FIRST… To treat myself with compassion, kindness, grace and love. I learned how to properly feed my body healing foods… And to accept my body and allow it to be the size it is. I quit trying to control so much and just accept what IS… Let it BE and BE ME…Read more
