From the very first moment you decided to take the hard road…you chose courage…you chose Life!
YOU made the choice …lay down and die or crawl…get up…stumble…fall down…struggle up…and LIVE! Does this not epitomize the journey we all call life? Do we not all have "our demons" we fight day by day? "Trauma beyond the norm"…is any trauma normal?

Two Years Today... For Angel Jk

Two years its been-painfully we struggled through the first half, barely survived the second half quite like a dream, trance like...going with the flow not caring where that flow may take me! Two years it seems like yesterday you told us your stay on earth is complete.
