They say every face in a crowd has a story to tell, this is my story..

The news shows and newspapers all called it 'Road Rage'. To me that sounded like a disease, an affliction that can make you kill. A sorry excuse to take the claw end of a hammer and slam it repeatedly into the skull of a human being. In April of 1999 my little brother passed away. Doesn't passed away sound so gentle, even normal? David's death was neither. It was murder. He was found lying in a strangers driveway in a pool of blood. He had been punched, stomped and beaten over his entire body. I still have so many questions. I wrote this book at first for therapy and then for answers. I have found a few. I mainly realized l lost a brother tragically and senselessly. Like every other face in the crowd I have a story..and I want to share my story with you! PUBLICATION DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED LATE SUMMER/EARLY FALL :)

Friday Fragments:

Happy Friday Fragments everyone. As usual my life never seems to have a dull moment. Those of you that know; I was in a accident back in September and have been struggling with post concussion syndrome, pinched nerves, herniated disks (4)and a torn rotator. I went yesterday for epidural and steroid injections in my neck and shoulder. I'm here so all went well although if I end up not making any sense it is because of the good drugs!
Also if you know me you know that I recently returned to my job of providing home care for the elderly. My newest client is a severe diabetic and needs someone to just keep her on track med wise and keep her company. I have bonded with her very quickly. Yesterday I was with her from 10am to 1pm and then was scheduled for my procedure at 2. At 11:30 My sweet Jayne went into a diabetic coma. She is in intensive care and I was late for my procedure. Please say a prayer for her.
Good news: I will be getting the release date for my book very soon and I am so nervous in both a positive and negative way. I need to be healthy because I was told this is were the real work comes in. No more sitting at the computer in jammies; I must be ready to put the rubber to the road!
More good news: New grand baby Peyton Elizabeth will make her grand entrance on the morning of May 28th via c-section which is the day before her cousin Adriana Jean turns one. Please say a little prayer for Peyton and my daughter Jillian. It has been a rough 7 and a 1/2 months and I cannot wait to meet her.
My husband is the ultimate mans, man and he is having a lot of trouble dealing with not being able to "fix" me. We are so in love and I feel so sad seeing him feeling so helpless.
Thank you Mrs.4444's for hosting Friday Fragments and I hope you will all scroll down to the link and join in!
I am still having trouble with creating my button but I am determined to get it as soon as the drug clouds leave my head.
I hope you all have a powerful and Positive week!


  1. Sorry about your client and your medical situation. I'm glad your shots went well!

    That's so exciting about the book! Congrats!

    I'll keep Peyton and Jillian in my thoughts- I know you must be anxious!

  2. I'll say a prayer and keep your family in my thoughts....Wow i want the release date for your book it all sounds so exciting... congrats on that.
    you will have to tell me where you get your inspiration from to write and was it hard to put a book together.
    stopping by from ff

  3. You have a lot going on at the moment. Good luck with it all, may everything turn out well for all involved. :)

  4. Prayers for you and yours. Good luck with your book - I hope it enables some good to come out of so much pain.

  5. Congratulations on the newest grandbaby. Will pray for her safe arrival. I'm glad you were with Jane when she fell into the coma. It could have been tragic if you weren't. Prayers for her as well.

  6. Hey Miss Doreen!
    Told you I would come by! :) I'm still recovering from a car wreck (2 years later) too! Just no fun at all is it! I hate the day after epidural steroid shots. I always schedule mine for a Friday so I have the weekend to recover. Praying that they will work as intended and you will feel better soon! Prayer cover also for your precious client, grandbaby and daughter-in-love!

    I know you are so excited about the release of the book, even though some of the memories bring pain. Keep me informed of how I can best pray for you and I will attempt to do so as thoroughly as I am able!

    Hugs to you! Hope your weekend is wonderful!

  7. Thank you so much Beth; you are so kind! And I guess you know what I'm talking about with these is Sunday and I am finally feeling a bit better! Hugs right back to you and thank you for the much needed prayers. I am hoping to report next Friday on the birth of a healthy little one.

  8. Praying for your friend and you...Thank you so much for stoping by my lil blog...I do not know how to make a button or I would surely offer to help you! my friend made mine for me

  9. Oh, dear. I hope your friend/client is better.

    Save a square photo (that has room for text) to Photobucket or Flickr and get back to me. I'll help you finish it off.

    I've read a little bit of your book (too tempted not to), and I like your writing style. I look forward to reading the rest soon.

    Good luck to your daughter-Can't wait to see pics of your new little someone to love :)

  10. Wow, you have a lot going on! Hope the post concussion syndrome pases soon. I've had it, and it is truly miserable.

  11. Just found your blog and will look forwaqrd to reading your book....Many prayers for your daughter and your new little......

  12. Please focus on the positive nervousness about your book. There is absolutely no point in worrying about the negative. If something negative happens you can deal with it at the time, but do not waste any time in the now worrying about something that has not happened.

    I wish you the best. I hope your client is doing better.

  13. Thank you Unknown Mami; I usually do try to stay in the positive and that is what I need to do! Thank you. My lady Jayne is in a coma still and things are not looking to good for her..I'm going to go see her this afternoon to see if I can wake her up.

  14. Thanks for stopping by! I have been a very bad blogger, but yesterday I got out in the beautiful weather with my camera and enjoyed being up close and personal with nature.. for me blogging goes hand in hand with being able to tell a story with my photos, so hopefully I will get back in the groove! Silly Bands are so crazy. My Walgreens has so many, and so many new places seem to be carrying the ever expanding selection (new companies, etc). Congrats on the baby that is coming!

  15. Oh my goodness did I finally get the button right! You have made my day!

  16. BlueHost is definitely one of the best hosting company with plans for any hosting requirements.
