Hello my dear friends,
Im happy and grateful to announce the publication of my new book ‘Finally Back Home’. It is available on Amazon in both paperback and ebook form at the following link:
A percentage of the proceeds will go to charity so you will be helping a fellow indie writer and the world at the same time 🙂
Also, part of the reason I write is to try and bring comfort to people and inspire them to reach their higher selves. If you feel anyone would benefit from my book I shamelessly ask for a reblog. It would be greatly appreciated!
I would like to thank all of you. It is your constant presence and encouragement here that led to the publication of ‘Finally Back Home.’ In particular, I would like to thank Laura at http://arkofidentity.wordpress.com/ without whom this book would have never come into fruition

Spiritual lessons come in all shapes and sizes, in all areas of life. So do bottoms. The problem with bottoms is that you may think you’re already there and then you go back just to find a new, lower bottom.
In my experience, I don’t really know I’m done with something until some time passes. I may be done for a short time because of the sting of my ego being bruised but then I go back for more.
Inevitably comes a time in every painful situation where the suffering out ways the benefits and therein lies a bottom.
Time away brings clarity. When emotionally removed from a situation I am able to see the truth I couldn’t see while in it.
The real lessons start to be revealed.
What do I really want? Why was I so willing to settle for less than everything I know is possible? Why couldn’t I just let go until now? What was it that drove my actions?
These are valuable questions that, if asked, are surely answered.
Being open to find the answers takes a lot of humility.
The hope is that I don’t keep finding myself in the same situations and expecting different results.
If I really trust in a power that is all loving and wants the best for me then I can let go and trust that if I move on from situations that no longer serve me, there are tremendous gifts on the other side.
The gift in bottoms that seem so sad and tragic at the time, is the growth we can attain, the self knowledge that is possible and faith in a better tomorrow in all things.
It’s only when I believe I deserve better that I attain better.
Today I surrender all to God and love myself enough to allow God to work in my life.
I just let go.
Nine years ago
The day you were born
I first saw your little face
And I knew the heavens were smiling down on us
Your little fingers and toes
I counted every single one
The fuzzy hair on top of your head
My hand smoothed with a gentle touch
Crying subdued as you heard the sound of my voice you already knew
And felt the warmth of my skin
I held you close
As I whispered silent promises of lifelong dedication
To help you live your dreams
Little button nose
Soft round cheeks
Tiny lids and lashes
Your eyes finally opened
As I gazed into those baby blues
I felt the light of unconditional love that touched me at my core
In an instant I understood it all
That we were two halves of a whole
Every day I’ve seen you grow into who you are meant to be
My heart fills more and more with joy
To know you is a sacred and precious gift
To be your mother is an honor and my love for you will go on long after forever
I don’t want to have to be perfect
To manage my environment to feel okay
Or be driven by false ideas
I don’t want to play it safe
Or be careful
I want to be open to new people and experiences
To really, really live
To be free
To have fun
To take chances
Fall down, skin my knees and get back up
To love hard
Be close with another
To give all that I have in me to give
To share life with someone I admire
And most of all
Enjoy the whole show before it ends
My eyes have been opened to the truth
But this sight is not through my eyes
It is through my soul that I truly see
I will never understand why it happened now
Why it happened to me
Not before nor after this moment in time
I only know that I have woke from a dream
The dream I thought was real until now
A light switch flicked on
Bright and burning for the whole world to see
No longer am I separate, different and alone
God is in me
I just was not awake to this fact
If I walked the earth with no person by my side
For the rest of whatever human life I have left
This temporary journey
I would never be alone
I have everything I need already within me
I always have but have failed to see
That this power of ultimate and unconditional love
Has already shown to itself to be
Working miracles big and small
This way it has always been
Only if I pay attention to not miss them
I am aware of the beauty of what lies around me
In each spirit that roams this lifetime
I finally know the potential for what is to come
In all things
And for this reason I carry the flame of hope
I am the sun that shines in the sky
The moon that illuminates the night
The drops of water on morning leaves
The wings of butterflies
The colors of wild flowers in a field
The blades of grass waving in the breeze
The trees that stand rooted in soil
The oxygen that gives life
I am the music of crashing waves on a beach
Laughter of children
A warm hug
I am love, understanding, hope, joy & goodness
I am the smile from another
The eyes that look back at me
I am you and you are me
And we are everything
