It’s okay to give yourself grace. I know to was hard but you got and showed up for today; it’s okay if you couldn’t get up today tomorrow is a new day.


Will it ever stop.. are will this is life forever.. the days of being care free have been long gone.. the laughter is only enjoyed for a second.. the smile that tries to hide the pain, the disappointment of the life you dream of gone in a matter of minutes to no fault of your own but it’s always in the back of your mind did I do something wrong..

Will the battle ever end.. Battles of tears that fall uncontrollably.. Battles to put one foot in front of the other.. Battles to hold on when you wanna give up..

Battles that you must win if not for yourself.. for the ones who are fighting the Battle with you..

Morning Devotion

imageI remember I used to literally hate getting up Monday morning for work.. but I would be so grateful to be able to work now.. I say that to say take nothing for granted in life.. all we have belongs to Him the Creator even our steps we take..

I thought this was a great way to end the night.. and to begin the morning.. I know it’s hard for a lot of us but we must try to find positivity again..

Close My Eyes

imageLet me close my eyes and see your face.. let me sit in silence and see your face.. let lay in bed and look at your space.. let close my eyes and think of your face.. let close my eyes and see how it really was.. me needing you and you giving me just enough to keep me holding on.. let me sit in silence and remember how your words were always demanding.. let me close my eyes and see you the real you.. not a fantasy I want to create of how you can be.. let me close my eyes and not see you anymore..
