On October 6, 2009, my 20-year-old son Erik, took his own life. Since that sad and tragic day, an overwhelming sense of grief and despair propelled me into a search for answers. Answers that would provide me and others with comfort and hope. Some of those answers came from the many books I bought, but many came from an unexpected source: Erik himself. Read more.

Crisis of Faith

This is actually old, like from 11/4/17! I forgot to click the Publish button! HAHA! Last night, I was really missing Erik, but as is rarely the case, I felt angry at him. I asked myself, ‘Why hasn’t he played any of the cool pranks or visited me like he did before, dropping Airsoft BBs...

We’re planning on spending Memorial Day at the house, hosting a swim party for Arleen’s 11th birthday! Little does my husband know that I bought a Slip N’ Slide for the party as well as a huge inflatable floating mat. He’s going to be pissed! He hates those things because they’re hard to store and...

A Dramatic Healing of a Woman Who Was Never Loved by a Mother

Sometimes I can relate to this wonderfully loving woman, Suzy, because my mother had her Mommy Dearest side.
