News paper articles

I have submitted a couple of news paper stories about Levi. it is a tribute to my son. We will see if they get printed. I have also included 2 photos of him as well.

This is a hard time of year for me. I deal with pain of the loss of my son Levi on a daily basis. Some people comment I am alway cherry and laughing. I have my bad days and my sad days. I just keep myself busy with writting, blogging to you good friends who support me. thank you I

mean it. I love writting and I appreciate you taking time to read what I post. I post a poem to Levi today on his memorial page. I hope you like it.It is hard to loose a child. We feel like we were left behind. But in reality I choose to llok at it as this: God must not have been done with me yet so I will keep moving forward in the good things he still has for my life untill he calls me home to. This is all I can do everyday and keep a chin up and be down. Nobody likes to around someone who is down all the time. Some people I know do have a good reason to be. Everyone handles grief different. Some never get over the loss of their loved ones. I know I will never get over loosing Levi, but writting “Healing in the Storms” has helped me to remember things I had forgotten about because it was to painful.

I did an online interveiw recently. One of the questions asked to me was”How and why did you write your book”? I answered the question with I wrote my first book because after Jerry and Levi passed away, I was always being told to get your book done. You have so much you can give to people who are grieving. I was told I have so much information on how I have handled my loss, that I should share how I have moved forward after the tragedy of Levi’s death in 2007. I am glad I have written my book. I have gotten positive reviews and responses to the book. It has been a long road to where I am now. I feel I am doing good, I have friends I can call if I am having a bad day and need a cup of coffee, I just try to not remember Levi. I used to try to keep myself really busy,exaustingly busy and it didn’t work. I learned the tears are good to cry. I need to cry sometimes and not hold them back. It does get easier the closer it is to July 20. I used to get really depressed and want to sleep all day. But that isn’t good to do. I go have nachos in his honor and go for a drive and put Pillar on. Levi liked that band. Mom and I will get tacos that night probably. We all used to get taco Tuesday, this time it will be taco wensday.
