8th Anniversary Of Our Final Goodbye

Share When you lose a child, you not only have the day that they passed to get through, you then have the day of their service, or as we called it, the FUNeral service to get through year after year.  And for us, that was our final goodbye to Andrew’s physical presence, the last time I would ever see my beautiful boy physically again this lifetime.

My Sweet Lady (PrettyMama)

Share It was a few days after Andrew’s birthday in May when I had been wondering what direction I should put my energy and goals. I was beginning to wonder if I would ever work with Andrew/PureHeart and Martin again. I mean we haven’t done an event since October 2014. Martin is going to be gone until at least October of this year, possibly longer with his cancer treatment in N Ireland. As time goes on, this bigger picture I thought I was seeing after Andrew left keeps getting smaller and smaller with every Muggle job I have to take to … Continue reading

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

Count Down Begins to the 8th Annual Int’l It’s All Good Day Celebration

ShareThirty four years ago was one of the most magical days in my life watching, helping bring the girl I always dreamed about into my life! And 8 yrs ago was the 2nd most traumatic day in my life! As we were getting ready to meet Elatia at the beach for her 26th bday, I was on cake duty, but first we had to make, what we thought was a quick trip to the walk in clinic for antibiotics for Andrew who had a sore throat & fever. Then we found out we had to go the ER b/c the … 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
