Why do we not talk about this more?
Clearly I am tired of “taboo” topics. Rape being the first one. Suicide definitely second. Yesterday morning I got a call with news that a very special person in my life suicided. If you do not know this is the appropriate term for this. Anyway, I brushed my teeth and then walked to my room but collapsed on the floor before I got there. My dog, Chloe came running. My cat, Grace came running. I have only had Grace a few months and it’s incredible the bond we have built. I was overjoyed for her to comfort me yet completely devastated. There is too much of this going on in our world and honestly I’m not ready to talk about this subject. But God keeps telling me I need to so I will eventually. We need to be kinder and gentler with people. Say hello to strangers. Compliment someone random. You never know whose life you are touching by a simple act of kindness. I am not licensed to guide you if you need help but I have some helpful numbers that I am posting under my contact info on the menu. If you or someone you know needs help please seek help. I am always willing to help you seek help as well. Look up Kevin Hines. He has set up a line that you can text for “Inspirational Stay Alive” messages. I have subscribed to it. He also has a crisis text line. It is free, 24/7 and confidential. Next, I think this man’s blog is very helpful for those who are experiencing suicide of a loved one. Soul Food – Suicide and the Bible. That post will be up shortly. Love you all and please seek help or ask for help if you need it. You matter!
