"Also, the definition of sin is just missing the mark. It means we made a mistake. We have this concept of sin in our culture like it is some horrible soul crushing thing that is looked at with such trepidation - and the definition of it…"

"Hi. My best friend who was like a step-mother (I would never say mother because it seems disrespectful to my Mom) passed away on January 24. This is after losing my Mom, my Dad, my Uncle, my step-mother-in-law, and several friends in the…"
I have been a caregiver for many years, so I guess I now define myself that way and thus don't have much more to say other than I am a writer. My book "The Blood Moon Sealed My Fate" is the first book in a trilogy. The second book will be coming out soon. The trilogy (which it seems may now turn into a series) tells the fictionalized story from abuse to recovery of one person I was a caregiver for after he asked me to tell the story once he passed away - so I guess I'm also a writer. I'm also a wife, an aunt, and once was a daughter but now I am an orphan.
About my Loss:
My greatest losses have been my mother, my father, my step-mother-in-law, and most recently in January (two months ago) the best and most loyal friend I ever had. Over the years of caregiving though, I've lost several other people. I guess I'm a little numb more than grieving at this point. When the numbness goes away, that's when I'm really going to feel it.

I've repeatedly been a caregiver but I'm not sure if that is what you mean by service provider.

"Her is an interesting resource. (just click or tap on the link)
It discusses the Bibles view of Death. Why we die, but especially the hope that the Bible gives us about the future.
I hope it helps with some hope and comfort.

"Haha Trav, She won't let you lol. I've tried. They want Us to fulfill this life before chasing them to the next. I suggest cactus treatment. Maybe even microdosing psilocybin for the reoccurring pain that will never go away. You'll…"
Annette's been dead just under eight months. My grieving hasn't stopped. I try but I keep getting worse mentally and physically. My groin has swollen more and now due to the fluid build its reaching past my knees. Grotesque doesn't come close to the sight of my misshapen body. I am a freak who is stared at whenever I manage to find the slight strength to go out. So it got me to thinking. As homely as I am, as disgusting as I have become, I remember those three words my wife and I lived with…See More

NOTE: My blogs are not posted with the intention of promoting any organization or religion. The goal of these blogs are to provide the same comfort I received for the death of a loved one. Enjoy.Death is a fearsome enemy. We fight it with all our might. We may try to deny it when it strikes someone dear to us. Or, in the exuberance of youth, we may imagine that the enemy will never come to claim us—a delusion we cling to as long as we can.Few thought more about immortality than the ancient…See More

I understand. Aside from Summer and Benny, I still get sad about the loss of our dog Sandy, who we had when I was a kid and through my college years. She died when I was in college, and I still love and miss her. I don't…"
