I’ve spent the month talking to a new guy. I thought he was genuine and funny. I couldn’t wait to meet him, but for whatever reason, our schedules didn’t really sync up until Father’s Day. The precious free moment for both of us finally came. So, we decided to meet in the chill little island […]
My dearest daughter, I am writing you again just after another coward felt emboldened to take the lives of innocent concert goers. I could care less who did it because in the end, this person is a coward and does not deserve to be remembered. It hurts me to know a mommy like me […]

Every year, I am heartbroken when another baby, toddler or child perishes because a parent has forgotten them in the car. I do not judge these deaths. I just morn them.
As I mourn the death of my favorite singer, I am reminded of the full circle of life. The importance of dealing with death and our children earnestly. Last month, O and I lost a special lady in our life. She was a part of my life story for nearly 20 years. Her warmth and honesty […]
