Cardigan

Because I was that girl. Because I can still remember the first time a man put his hands on me. I remember the way it felt. I remember the way it made me feel. And I remember thinking he wouldn't do it again. But I was wrong. Because I was the girl who swore up …

Impossible

Because this morning I woke up with a thousand things on my mind. He wasn't one of them. Completely stressed out. Full of worry. With a to-do list a mile long. And yet, He insisted I come spend some time with Him. β€˜The rest of the world can wait,’ He said. I fought His calling …

Here I Am

Because I can still remember all the prayers I thought you forgot. The nights I spent crying. Asking you what I did to deserve any of this. Because I was miserable. I was lonely. And because I felt forgotten. But then here I am. And I am only here because of You. Because you pursued …

I will not make this tragedy about me.  I will not make it about my beliefs.  I will not make it my platform to take my stance.  Because I think that's the problem.  The sense of self.  This pride and sense of entitlement to be right.  To be heard.  To be sure that everyone knows …

Hated. And so I hid. I hid for a long time. I hid behind …

Lost

I did something and it changed everything.  I am being hard on myself. Too hard according to some. And not hard enough according to others.  …

“God Hid Her”

Because I shared this blog with another friend of mine. It didn't apply to me because at the time I was convinced that I had found the man of my dreams.  He was everything that I could have ever wanted and I believed that I was finally done looking.  My kids loved him. I loved …
