Ran across this beautiful picture while browsing in Flickr.com.

It is a very crisp picture that puts me right there over looking out to the bay. I am feeling the cold weather & can feel my breath in the cold crisp air.

Sitting here feeling the breeze coming in from the water & the chill that the wet air brings with it, I find myself drifting away.

Thanks for the beautiful photo.

Every Morning…

Imagine every morning waking up and feeling
“I don’t want to live another day without my child in my life.”

Feeling that on the side of the highway
is where my child left this world.
Alone and hurt,
you left this life to live anew –
free of pain and sorrow.

But waking up, I see your empty bed
and I am preparing your clothes in
boxes ready to go. I drive to work
and see your memorial on the
side of the road and the tears come.

Every morning I feel the rage and anger for
that careless driver who took
your life from me.

Everyday I feel your absence.

But each morning I awake again
and continue to live this life
because I know I must.
God does have bigger plans for me.

I wake up and continue my life because
I don’t want yours to be forgotten.
I need to let the world know that you
are a person of significance.

That you mattered – to me!

I need to remember, I need to live!
To be free and laugh again.
I am the only one that can set me free!
And for that I need to learn to forgive.

Forgive them, forgive you, forgive me.


This is another dream/visitation that I experienced fully awake. The feelings I got were feelings I have never felt before, but feel them I did. These words came to me early in the morning. I awoke and sat down with the urge to write. These words are not mine and the feelings expressed are not my feelings. I am sobbing with such pain and sorrow as I write these words. The pain and suffering that these words express is running all my emotions and are mine to feel. I am feeling the pain of a parent who has lost a child – though I have not.

At first I reasoned them to be hollow because I have not lost a child so how can I be writing in first person. I even tried to rewrite them from a stranger’s perspective & my computer would not have it. So I accepted what was coming to me. Secondly a thought entered my mind for a moment. I always have these premonitions in dreams – so could this be of a future day in my life?? NO not my son!!!! The emotions became horrifying for a second and the pain and sorrow became mine.

Then I got present to where these words were coming from. These words were meant for someone – I don’t know who – to read & not for me to keep them in my scrapbook. So I would like to share them with you. I know that I don’t know what it is like to lose a child – so maybe these words are really hollow, but I think I got a stranger’s glimpse into what a parent might be going thru.

A Powerful & Fulfilling Life

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
— J.R.R Tolkien

The other day, my sister & I had a lengthy discussion. She feels that people have done her wrong & that she is really hurt. She feels attacked. Everybody has a right to be mad at whomever they want & yes, they are entitled to those feelings. But is that really a way to live life? I want a powerful & fulfilling life but this just does not fulfill my soul. So this is nude celebs what I wanted to say to her – since she asked me for advise – but she did not want to hear. So I will post my words here, so for now she can get these words thru osmosis.

We have all been victimized, & some people can be really mean and hurtful. But if you can accept the possibility that being victimized is just a perception, you will realize that it is not an empowering way to live. I’m not trivialize your feelings & yes bad things, such as crimes, really do happen – but you are just talking about words people use & how they affect your emotions. What they choose to say & do are – just that – done! But can you consider that how YOU chose to see that situation will ultimately determine what the situation becomes. Further consider that you can create an effect & how that situation will affect you. For example, if I say “you said some mean things & they really hurt me” then that is who I choose to be – a person who is hurt. But if I say “the words you chose were hurtful & why did you say them to me?” then I have opened up the options. I am no longer a person who is hurt but one who has hurtful things said to me. Can you now see that the only thing that just happened was that mean words spilled out of their mouth. I an NO LONGER VICTIMIZED – no longer the VICTIM! I am a powerful being because I freely choose to be so!

I want you to think differently. Think for a second that everybody’s actions can be taken as what we think them to be. Then think that if I perceive them & accept them as such – that’s what they become.

“Thoughts are like magnets drawing effects to you…”

Now think that every action has an effect & an outcome. Further think that any outcome is only your perception of what happened. Does it not become clear to see that you actually have control of what you perceive & therefore you are in a position of power whereby you can affect an outcome!? The power to realize that results & outcomes are human creations & that I can create an outcome simply by what I want them to be. The outcome will simply be create by your intentions!

Nooooo! now you’re thinking silly! The three million dollar lottery tomorrow will not necessarily be won by you – simply because you intent it so! But your close! Your feelings can no longer be affected by others – you have the power!

Your intention will be to – no longer let words create THAT effect on you!

The power of intention is an amazing tool! So intend that your word has power.

Thank You Lord!

(Original Date: Oct 8, 1997)
Thank you Lord for allowing us to
Experience the true meaning of life.

By bringing forth our first born, you have sent
An angel from heaven to usher in happiness
A newborn life is truly a gift from heaven

We praise you Lord for this momentary glimpse
Of heaven on earth, for he is truly an angel
Heaven-sent to guide us in our journey through life.


This dream was a vivid glimpse at the birth of my son (actually my son is not born yet). In this dream I see a child birth & am rejoicing at the miricle that it is
