In the beginning, I never considered myself a writer. There were times in my life when a thought provoking poem would come to mind and I'd write it with ease. But a writer? Not me.
Then one gloomy night, at my bleakest hour, I wrote five words, Dear God...Please help me. And it was after I wrote those words that my writing struck through the clouds like a bolt of lightning. It gave me answers to my hopeless questions, lifting me up like the sun rising to meet the dry desert sky. I recognized its power, that silent force. I listened. I wrote. And in the nick of time, change happened in more ways than I could've ever imagined.
Today my writing is different…in fact, everything is. Losing my husband and my daughter, to cancer within months of each other, changed my life…forever. And in the face of my grief, on the dark days, as well as the bright ones, I grasp my pen as if my life depends upon it. There is so much to tell and life is simply too short and precious to not be the writer I was born to be.
So I write without a platform or a fancy degree. I write, like I live my life…fully, honestly, and whole heartily.
