#DV Shelter/Org. Project ~ Featuring: The Heminger House

In October of 1986 I lost both of my parents to Domestic Violence; 1 in the grave and the other went to prison.  I was 7 years old at the time.  28 years later I still have family members that carry guilt related to this.  They often tell me things like, "I wish I would have came and got you kids..." or, "I wish I would have done something..."  I've been in restaurants in my hometown and a stranger approached my Mom and me and said, "I live in your old house;  THE house."   At the time I was extremely annoyed with this stranger, but I truly believe that she didn't know what to say and she should have just said nothing instead of what she did.

Due to the nature of my career I can no longer get out into the field and "tell my story" the way that I would like to.  This is why my picture was taken down from public social media platforms a few years ago.  However, my career is important to me and I know that I am fulfilling a portion of my purpose there.  I continue to blog and post Domestic Violence Awareness profusely via Twitter and Facebook.

#MentalHealthMonday - Depression & S.A.D.

I've decided that beginning today we will have a Mental Health Monday post published on Randomly Speaking, Poetically Thinking...   each Monday.  I do not claim to be a Mental Health Professional, but I am open to receiving guest posts from professionals who are willing to share their expertise.

This Sunday's Reflection... (11/16/14)

Usually I would say that during a trial my "faith is being tested" but recently I found myself at complete peace during a trial, unnerved and I hear myself say, "my faith is growing."  There is an extreme difference.
