Mirror, mirror what do you see?

Who do you see when you look in the mirror? 
Do you see the struggle, the strides, the scars? Or do you see what those of us see that know your obstacles?  The strength you were given to carry the weight of 10 men through the desert. Do you see the fragility of a blooming […]

Mental Memory, Physical Moments

My husband and I were talking the other day about the things in my past. He has expressed on more than one occasion that if he could he would somehow erase, get rid of, the people or events that have left such a lasting effect on my mind, body, and soul. Those things that […]

Title? Think I forgot it too…

By |November 9th, 2018|Family|2 Comments

Through my years I have gone through things, done things, put myself in situations I shouldn’t have, gone places I shouldn’t have, yet some things I wish I could speak on. There are some things I honestly want to talk about but I can’t. I am pretty sure there are some of you reading […]

Forgotten kisses

There are a lot of missing pieces of the puzzle of my life.
One particular time, the day I married James. We were sitting here the other night talking about different things as we normally do and then he got on the subject of our wedding day. I remember very little about that day. I remember […]

The Hero Within…

Two of the times I have been raped I was under the influence of alcohol. Because of the things I have gone through in my life, the lives of my family members and close friends I am really just not the type of person that drinks like that. Yes, I am Irish so the […]

Seeing signs

By |October 5th, 2018|Family|0 Comments

I have been reading posts from other domestic violence survivors in support groups. I see myself in so many of the stories I read. The intimidation, manipulation, the “love” the abusers claim they have for their victims. It kills me because as I remember all that I was told and all he claimed I […]
