My beloved husband, Kent, died in January 2012, 3 years after diagnosis of a brain tumour. Our son was 2 1/2 and our daughter 3 months old. He and I were far too young. I am now hurtling through the black space of life without him.

Quotes for friends

These are for you, my dearest of friends. I see the tears well in your eyes, and I am grateful that you carry a little of the pain for me. The dark clouds sit heavily on my shoulders, and you are holding them with me. 
The second one is, to me, astounding. Perhaps one day there will be gold. 

"I see your sadness
eating you up inside
and it is slowly
killing me because
I can't do anything
except tell you
and I hope that
will be enough
              for now."


"Some days I wake up
and all I feel
are the fractures
in the flesh
that covers
the only me
I've ever known.
Some days,
it's those exact
that let the light
hiding inside me
pour out
and cover
in gold
that found enough beauty
in the cracks
to stand
close. "
