Girl Power!!

Relationship / Sexual abuse

Good morning friends. Went to group therapy with my husband last night. Gosh, what a session. My nasty came out. I lashed out at the group and was going to leave.  I felt misunderstood and not heard. I felt the crazy in me coming back. This feeling is not good for me, or anyone else for that matter. It really brings out my defense mechanisms. One blessing that did arise from the situation last night, […]

What a Weekend!

Leave a comment

Oh friends, what an awesome weekend I had!! I had my first slumber party. I felt like a kid again. No better way to nurture your inner child, having friends over and being silly. Delia and her daughter Mckenzie came over for he night. Delia and I have been friends for almost nine years. She knows so much about me and well, she’s still here!! hahahaha. People, let me tell you, I can barely make it to […]

More than We can Ask or Imagine

Originally posted on <a href="">Trinity and Humanity</a>:<br />My favorite concluding sentence for morning prayer has become the one based on Ephesians 3:20-21. It says: Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to him from generation to generation in the Church, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever. Amen. (The Book of Common Prayer, pg. 102.) When I first started using the daily offices…

A Gift just for Me.

  God delivered me a beautiful gift today.                    Went over to my parent’s place today for a visit. They don’t live too far from me. I usually feel apprehensive about going over to visit because I don’t like how I feel when I’m there. Before I get there I say the serenity prayer and surrender my feelings over to God before heading in. To my surprise one of […]

What I have endured and experienced has opened new doors for me I never thought possible. The blessings I have received with writing and sharing through this blog page are overwhelming.   The trick to all of this has been by,  sharing my experiences, and how those experiences have connected me with others. Some may have endured childhood sexual abuse therefore we can relate to each other, some are teen moms therefore we can relate […]

Don’t Call Me Ma’am

There is a single word in the English language that has the power to ruin my whole day.  That word is Ma’am. I could be having a perfectly fine day – a great day even – the kind of day where my car starts on the first try, my kids get off to school without a ton of screaming and, when I check myself…

About Me

So I’ve been procrastinating BIG time on finishing my last assignment for school. I’ve been playing on the computer and checking out my Facebook and Twitter accounts. To be honest, it’s not something I enjoy doing at all. Well, ok maybe sometimes. Ummm, no not really. :) After checking all that stuff, I decided to reply to some comments made to some of my posts here on my blog site and I got to thinking. I really don’t have […]

My Voice was lost.

Sexual abuse

Wanted to share this. I got this from another fellow Survivor such as myself :) What is the first thing that we lose when impacted by the trauma of sexual abuse? Innocence?  Physical state? Emotional well-being? I believe it is our voice with the fear of telling someone that a horrible event has taken place in our life. We lose our voice with the fear that no one will believe what we have to say. […]

It’s Saturday afternoon. Not a good start to the weekend. I can not begin to tell how you how, when not addressed or dealt with, the effects of Childhood Trauma permeates our lives and relationships. It seethes through every fiber of our being if left unattended, it rears it’s ugly head when threatened or when not feeling safe in horrible ways. It lashes out to loved ones, it hurts and uses cutting words to under mind and […]
