I Ain’t Got a Leg to Stand on…

I Ain’t Got a Leg to Stand on… If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you know the struggle with my leg.  Not my real one, my fake one.  I truly do not even understand how something that isn’t even real can constantly send you such unhealthy vibes.  First I have…

Waiting in Wonder

Waiting in Wonder I love to inspire others and reach out to help others. I have always wanted to share my experiences and to bless the people around me. Back in January 2013 I began praying about my purpose in life and asking God to give me direction in regards to this question. I recorded…

A New Leg of My Journey

A New Leg of My Journey Twenty five years ago chemotherapy looked so very different than it does now. This was before nausea medicine, before steroid injections, before platelet shots.  Back then most blood transfusions were not scanned for HIV and most drugs were experimental. Treatment with chemo often took a patient to the brink…

Subjected to Truth

Today I have discarded all of my notes and want to write from recent experience. Many of my friends and loved ones are going through very serious trials and tribulations. As I listen to them speak of these things in my mind I so clearly hear their heart crying out, “Why?! I just want this…

Things Break – But we don’t have to! (Part 1 of 2)

Things break.  This is not a pessimistic viewpoint or a negative one; it is a reality and one that we must face as we go through life.  Lately I have experienced a lot of breaking with the one thing that everyone else takes for granted:  Legs.  Due to my extremely high amputation it is essential…

Waiting to Live?

Waiting to Live? Lately I have felt led to volunteer at a local Retirement Home.  I have been playing piano for the retirees and then visiting with them after.  Nearly every resident that I speak to seems to feel the harsh reality that end of life care can bring.  The reality that there really seems…

Chaos Free Circles – Operating from a place of peace

It is my desire today to write about chaos.  Chaos is all around us and affects us in so many ways.  For several years I heard from a therapist, “I don’t do chaos” and one day I finally asked her what this meant.  It makes sense that we try to stay away from drama and…
