    Taciturn and full of wonder, Seeking for all things beautiful, And finding most of them within her own grasp, Wondering if the world can offer what imagination and hope share freely, Listening for any sign of life, In a thought that gasps for air with every inhale of purpose she takes, And yes is the […]

Even if they desired to, I pushed them as far away […]
  • “Kindness follows light…” May 13, 2018
    I have NO idea who did this for me—but if you follow me, PLEASE know that I’m SO thankful…😭💞 . I came home to an awkward-looking package on my doorstep after a beautiful day out with my mom and brothers (much needed quality time). . When I opened it—literally 7 of my FAVORITE things were […]
