Sometimes I’m Sad —

I suppose anyone can write this post. I suppose someone else has already written this post. Today, I woke up sad, and it hasn’t changed much as the day has progressed. I’m all alone in my office with repetitive, mind numbing work to do. Don’t get me wrong; I am VERY thankful for my job. […]

Recently one of the most important persons in my life died. The circumstances around her passing were not quick or easy. The aftermath has been just as bad. Family squabbling made the process of putting her to rest almost unbearable. Now, I am left with a place in my heart that never stops hurting. I’m […]
