Transformation

Daily Prompt: Transformation There was no big bang, no ton of bricks hitting me unawares, it was more a subtle shift, a gradual change. Not only in thought, but feelings and direction too.

Tree

Daily Prompt: Tree What do you see when you see a tree. I see a trunk, strong and steadfast, unwavering against the strongest storm. I see branches growing from the trunk; some covered in leaves all year round, some not. The trunk doesn’t care, she holds strong and supports her branches no matter what. I…

Cancer: I don’t know what to say or do?

Cancer: I don’t know what to say or do! I know how that feels, before Brendan had cancer I didn’t either. Maybe I still wouldn’t if given the news that someone else I know, love, or care about has cancer. But here are just a few tips that I can share through personal experience, that…
