DIVA-LICIOUS

Share* Grabs mic and gets on soap-box – “Is this thing on?” *   People have said that I am a Diva. Well if Diva means still standing after nearly losing your 25 year old daughter after emergency surgery on a rare ovarian tumor that they wanted to treat as an aggressive form of ovarian cancer. Then going right into a Leukemia diagnosis with your 16 year old son, then losing him 4 months later. Then suddenly being thrown into menopause at 47 year old so you don’t have a major physical meltdown from all the trauma in the past year. Then … Continue reading

The Janitor

ShareThis story is one of the MANY reasons I just adore and love my son’s attitude! He just got shit! While at All Children’s hospital during the summer of 2007, when my son was first diagnosed with leukemia, this 16yo boy thanked the janitor for cleaning his room after Andrew was ripped from his summer fun to be in the PICU on dialysis and chemo and other aggressive leukemia treatment like needles stuck in his spine etc. The janitor left my son’s room astonished saying, “That boy just thanked me! He really thanked me!” My son Andrew asked me why … Continue reading

Happy 24th Birthday Muck!

ShareAndrew’s 24th birthday was last week and as always it is an emotional time for me, especially with Martin being 3,000 miles away, and waking up alone on Andrew’s birthday to the deafening silence. Also the realization that it is his 8th birthday I was celebrating without him physically here. I can not believe he would be 24. The Grief  was all up in my flava that morning! So I had the pity party first and then went on preparing for his birthday. My friend Megan came over around 1pm, so the pity party ended then. She came over early … Continue reading

5th Dimension Living

ShareLiving in the 5th Dimension. I wrote before about multi-dimensional living as a grieving parent, but now I am going to write about what 5th dimensional living means to me. As December 21, 2012 was approaching, the mainstream arena and religious worlds were all bizzed about the end of the world. The metaphysical world was all bizzed about “the ascension” to the 5th dimension. It was the Y2K hype all over again! AND I didn’t buy into that one either! I mean, you write a computer program and problem solved! Nothing shuts down. DUH! Geeez! Humans are so gullible! Many … Continue reading

3 Peas In A Pod

ShareMartin and Andrew were always known as 2 peas in a pod. Andrew loved dressing like Martin when he was little, not to mention he is the spit of Martin to boot. It’s like I had nothing to do with it at all dammit! WTH? Now that Kaliana is here, her and Daba are known as 2 peas in a pod, but apparently I stand corrected! We went to Orlando Jan 4th because Kali’s dad, J.R. had a food conference he attended last year and was going this year in Orlando again, so it was an opportunity for Kaliana to … Continue reading

Living Multidimensional Lives

ShareThis is from a grieving mother that explains to another grieving mother on a Facebook post I came across in my news feed, how we live now as  parents moving through and healing grief: ” I too am now living a multidimensional life. You can’t shrink back to the size you were but other people are not that big. It took a tragedy for this to happen. I feel the same. And I wish it hadn’t. Communicating with my son gives me strength and comfort. It was him coming to me in my dreams that gave me strength. Your son … Continue reading

Wizard’s Window Rises Again

ShareWhen Andrew was in hospital he was hell bent on starting Wizard’s Window up again. Actually not long before he was diagnosed he was taking pictures of our Wizard’s Window merchandise for one of his Myspace pages, “Peace Of Heaven.” He wanted to keep Wizard’s Window going. He loved our store. He even wanted me to make a sign for his hospital room door that said, “Wizard’s Window, Open for Business!” He was wanting me to go home and bring him his wand making supplies to make more wands and wrap crystals while he was battling leukemia. He wanted to … Continue reading
