“Life is short, you should choose to be happy” the quote read on a Facebook post from someone that I would consider to be nothing more than a Facebook friend. It is an interesting title to give someone nowadays. To me that term means, you want to see what is happening in my life, but... Continue Reading →
All that I had, I gave away (a letter to you)
My Love, I spent this past weekend driving through the places that meant a lot in our lives. It wasn’t an intentional trip down memory lane that brought me by these places but nonetheless it is where I ended up. It started with me passing the house that we bought, our sweet little 3-bedroom ranch... Continue Reading →
I was supposed to write the next post about the difficulty of being four hours away from my boys, about trying to figure out if the personal success that I have been having at work was worth the distance that I am away from them. About whether or not I should move back and take... Continue Reading →
The Formidable Mile….
The journey that I have taken over the course of the past two years has been one that at times has seemed directionless. Taking the proverbial one step forward only to take two steps back again. At times these steps seem to be tripping over themselves then stumbling either forward or falling backwards so the... Continue Reading →
To: My boys
On November 3rd, 1999 you were born. I can remember it like it just happened. The fear, excitement, and immeasurable love that tangled and bound up my body was crippling. You were born in the morning and your first day was filled with visitors, a proud mother and father trying their best to change you... Continue Reading →
How do I…..
The first time I said, “I love you” to her it slipped out by accident. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to say it to her; I had been waiting years to say those very words to her. She was house sitting for her neighbor, she wanted me to come over and stay with her.... Continue Reading →
I have always been one to talk things out when something is bothering me. This allowed me to externalize what was building up internally which in turn allowed me to make it real. If it was just inside my head then it never seemed real, there never seemed to be evidence of how I was... Continue Reading →
Bleeding it in…..
I always felt that love was such a unique experience that it could or would only happen once in my lifetime. I have many theories as to where this feeling came from but that is for another time and another place. Those of us with crippling self-doubt never thought that love would be something that...

All the falling pieces…..
Ever play that game where you sit and contemplate the existence you would have had had you not taken a right an hour ago and instead taken a left? The one where you dream up scenarios of maybe had you taken that left you would have been involved in some horrific accident or on the... Continue Reading →
Tearing down and building up….
May of 2016 I walked into a Guitar Center to look, I swear just look, at guitars. Hung high upon the wall was a Derek Trucks Gibson SG. It showcased a natural wood with a red finish and it was gorgeous. I had a plan throughout the six months that she lived with me that... Continue Reading →
