Spina Bifida Awareness Month (October)


With all that has been going on in my life I completely forgot that it was Spina Bifida awareness month. I recently went to Blythdale Children’s Hospital for an appointment (don’t ask why they forced me to go to a children’s hospital). I walked into this waiting area not to flashbacks of my childhood, but … Continue reading

United States Health Care- Why hospitals are losing the health care battle


This is the fourth healthcare provider I have had the pleasure of being involved with and I’ve been dealing with healthplus-Amerigroup since july.

People


People. Understand, that water represents the connection of where their world meets ours.  Know your ignorance in fashion, is the predisposed future of the path laid before you.

The smile pockets a rattling controversy.


Kim smiled radiantly everyday. She always stopped to smell every flower and watch with direction the birds were flying. It brought joy to her heart to see children enjoying time with their parents in the yard.

The Free Spirit Within Me

Nothing about being a spirit compared to being a human and nothing about being human could compare to me. I was able to move freely, feel endlessly, and think without limitations.
