To my sweet child,
You are still inside your Mommy’s tummy. Secure, warm, and sheltered. You have everything you need and are heartily dancing around inside me all the time. I supply you with the proper nutrition, keep myself hydrated and ascertain that I follow all my doctor’s orders to stay healthy and sustain you while you grow inside my body...Continue Reading
Return to me, my strength
For it has faded and gone away-
Be with me, for now I know
That without you I am astray…Continue Reading
The skies open, and rain thunders through the sky. They come steady and furious, its pattern beautiful for me to watch from the safety of my car, yet persistent for those caught out in the rain.
I am safe in my vehicle. Nice and dry when there are so many out there running and trying to escape to safety…Continue Reading
Marriage isn’t for the faint of heart. A serious relationship that requires work, communication, and constant revelation is not for those who like things done ‘the easy way’ and search for ‘easy love.’ In today’s society, people are looking for the ‘fast food’ kind of love, where it’s easy to purchase. The commitment required in a marriage is demanding, and it’s an ongoing struggle…Continue Reading
As human beings who are intuitive and wise people, we are great at many things. The human race is full of talent, wisdom, knowledge, and innovation surpassing any other. Yet perhaps the greatest strength of humankind is the power to dig our graves of misery and then lie in the abyss of darkness we’ve created with our own hands.
We are great at self-deprecating, negative thoughts and vibes about ourselves and we tend to master the art of continuously telling ourselves…Continue Reading
‘I want to stay here forever,’ I whisper,
While I caress his soft skin and feel his silky hair.
‘Yeah?’ he asks, softly,
As if the breath itself is sacred and smooth-
The delicate thing between us.. . Continue Reading
Spontaneity is one of my favorites. When things just happen, as if by themselves, without grand planning or rumination. I like it when an idea is conceived on the spur of the moment and I get to follow through on it.
At the end of last week, my husband and I decided to get away for a small trip. Through the hullabaloo and goings-on of a busy work/life balance, we hadn’t found the time to leave for vacation. Since the baby is on the way…Continue Reading
There will always be ups and downs. Highs then lows. Climb then stumble. Fail then grow. There will always be those times, those moments when you feel like you won’t take another step because it’s all for naught. Because you’ve tried getting up, attempted to dust off your clothes and make those scars disappear- to no avail.
There will be those times when life just gets too much and you feel like you can’t take the weight of your troubles and the pressure is building up inside…Continue Reading
I’ve grown up rather lonely,
The eldest daughter
With three younger brothers.
They were sweet, granted-
Yet my dream, my yearning
My real desire…Continue Reading
Nothing worth having comes easy. If it’s worth it you will need to invest every drop of energy to make it happen. If it’s really important to you you’ll need to fight through battles to get there. You’ll need to climb mountains and treacherous terrain. You’ll need to stretch beyond the limits of your body and mind and traverse the trail with rocks strewn about.
Nothing worth it just shows up at your door. You need to fight for it, passionately. As if your life depends on it. As if you hadn’t another choice but to cling to faith…Continue Reading
You are your own worst enemy. Take a good, hard look in the mirror and see the person staring right back at you. There are additional adversaries in your life perhaps, yet the one person who holds the most power over you- is you.
The one who doesn’t let you grow, who can’t seem to find the courage to maximize your true potential, the one who continuously berates and belittles you…Continue Reading
What if every moment
every struggle you go through,
what if it meant that it’s
really a blessing for you?… Continue Reading
If you take a long and hard look around you and think about all the happenings going on in our world, it is easy to lose yourself in the pain and endless heartache. It doesn’t take much for one to realize that the world we’re living in is a frightening place. Where our every move is unpredictable and we do not know what tomorrow will bring.
Some see this universe as a bloody, merciless, and frightening world. The very ground seems to be cursed and there are very few people…Continue Reading
To my beloved husband, soul mate, and best friend. Written in honor of Our Anniversary!
Every time I look at you
There’s so much that I see
Will you ever know just how much
I’m glad that you’re with me?
Every time you take me ‘round
Or kiss and squeeze my hand
Now that I’m entering my sixth month of my pregnancy my little baby’s kicks come hard and fast. So much so that I may cringe, the sharp pains in my stomach something that i’m definitely not accustomed to!
It is interesting to note that I have not felt any resentment or anger for the pain that this is causing me. It is uncomfortable many times. When I’m just trying to have a good time and the aches and pains are throbbing. When I’m trying to settle in…Continue Reading
Giving is part and parcel of life. The way we humans operate. Give and take, return, and reflect, with smiles and with gratitude. Giving makes up life. As what are we if we do not give of ourselves to another? What is our purpose if we cannot extend ourselves and go beyond our comfort zones to provide for another that which … Continue Reading
I haven’t had the easiest childhood, to say the least. Life has forced me to grow up too fast and too soon, at a pace which I could barely follow. I was unceremoniously thrown into the whirlpool of pain, anguish, and intolerable emotional purgatory.
Nobody asked me if I wanted to do this, if I was strong enough, fast enough, big enough. Life just handed me a truckload full of agony which I needed to… Continue Reading
God doesn’t need another
David or yet another Goliath
God needs you
And your endless tryin’
God doesn’t need a hero
Who has a wonderful story
God needs your presence
Your identity, without glory
For those of you who have read my post “Lessons from Loss” will be familiar with the heartbreak I experiences upon the loss of my unborn baby. It was a devastating time which called for introspection, faith, and lots of strength.
I desperately wished to be pregnant again after my loss, yet the fear, anxiety, and doubts hung over me like a dark cloud. I kept envisioning the same thing happening again, God forbid, and spent many a sleepless nights in worry and despair… Continue Reading
There have been many exiles throughout the ages. Of various different forms, alternate realities and tales, yet all involving those who were tortured, persecuted, and shamed. Throughout the millennia there has been multitudes of people from different ethnicity groups, races, and cultures who were forced into exile due to reasons which can not be comprehended in todays modern culture and date and age… Continue Reading
Why God, I ask
When there is never a clear reason
For pain, for heartbreak
For a desperately lonely season.
Why God, I ask
When people die, when hardships come
And there seems
When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. Everyone has gone through something that has changed them. – Unknown
Everyone has got a story to tell, for everyone is living life, experiencing, feeling, and struggling. Some stories are colorful, exciting and invigorating. Some are bold, unpredictable, and interesting. Some stories can make you cry, some make you laugh, some leave you feeling scared, confused, and exhausted… Continue Reading
You didn’t come this far to only come this far –Unknown
It has been a long winter. The cold has impacted all of us, some more, some less. The nights were endlessly long, the darkness seemed to be never ending and unstoppable. The days were short, there was scarcely light- and then night fell and there… Continue Reading
I loved it as soon as I saw the positive test.
I had dreams, visions, a future so bright for this tiny creation.
I was up for nights, daydreamed, thought of nothing but the new life
I was creating.
Then- it was no more.
The grief was gut wrenching, the pain intolerable, the dreams
Exploding and imploding and tearing me apart.
The Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines Perfection as “An unsurpassable degree of accuracy or excellence; freedom from fault or defect.”
When it is quoted it appears superfluous, almost unnecessary. Sentences beaded together, so often heard yet never perceived. It is hard for me to ponder the phraseology, simply written. When I think about it, the monstruous word Perfection gazing at me I feel a blinding beam of light which provides clarity. For honestly, I cannot fathom how one can still pursue this unreachable, hazy objective. Nearly childlike and full of… Continue Reading
” I could not find a Hero in my life. So I became One.” – Muniba Mazari
The Merriam Webster’s Dictionary defines the word Hero as: “A person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.” When one thinks of the word ‘Hero’ various images may surface . Those who value patriotism will see heroic soldiers on the battlefield in their minds eye, ready to give up their own lives for the greater good of their country. For some who have gone through… Continue Reading
It’s really just a small slice. One section of cheesy deliciousness. Still, I stare, and wonder why the emptiness seams to snicker. I notice that we do that all the time. So much good in our lives, so much blessing, so much to be grateful for. Instead, the… Continue Reading
