When I became bedridden at the age of 28 due to a spinal injury I struggled with wanting to check out and not be on this earth any longer.   In my spirit I knew it was not my choice and I battled the feelings but the heartache was so strong and I had to combat it.  I cried out to God an in the midst of my pain received inspiration and understanding in the form of writing poetry and prose. Surprisingly, writing helped me cope in so many ways. Forms of writing have even been known to help others cope in professional industries.

As I expressed my struggles He gave me words to pen that displayed compassion, understanding and most of all hope!  Words would just bubble up to the surface and pour out onto the paper as I penned them.   The poem called, “The Will To Live”, which can be found in our online christian greetings shop, was inspired by my son Gabriel, who was about 5 yrs. old then.

I was lying in bed curled up in the fetal position and he gently came over and laid his body across mine embracing me in a warm hug.  He didn’t have to say a word.  Just his act of love was all I needed to know that I had to hang on for my children.  And then “ I penned “The Will To Live”
