My children are my life, simply stated. I do everything I can to instill in my children the values, beliefs, and morality my parents handed down to me, sometimes feeling as though what I'm doing isn't affecting them in any way. Then I witness, out of the corner of my eye, one of them doing something kind for someone, lending a helping hand, supplying a shoulder to cry on. It is then that I realize that they truly understand and I'm thankful.
My children each have their own special needs, ranging from ADHD and Autism to rare disorders and post-kidney transplant status.
Writing is my passion! I utilize this skill as a means to inspire and counsel others, express my opinions, and put a voice to the thoughts and questions that clutter my mind on a daily basis.
Satirical humor, particularly sarcasm, have and always will be my coping mechanism. My kids tell me I have this twisted ability to make even the most serious of situations funny. What can I say? It's just the wicked way my mind reacts to every day stress, and definitely not meant to offend. Some say that laughter is the best medicine. I say, "Bring it on! Laughter is free, and I am on a very strict budget!"
My writing encompasses my experiences in life thus far, both negative and positive. My ultimate goal with writing is to use these experiences to inspire others . . . to openly disclose my personal experiences with subjects such as domestic violence, parenting special needs children, single parenthood, military life, depression, teen suicide, as well as several other indigenous encounters.
Through trials such as those previous stated, I have gathered a wide variety of resources. I have learned to make negative situations into positive inspiration by means leading others in the direction necessary to overcome.
If everyone in this world would take the time to help just one person find their way, just imagine who quickly these efforts would grow. I truly believe that one person CAN make a difference in this world. If I encourage just one person through my writing, the domino effect will take over and positive change will spread like wildfire.
