Momentary Laspe of Blogging

Kimmy Sharing Light has always been about accountability and ownership. Although, I do come off as cocky and on a high horse, I also struggle with day to day life. I started this website not just to share light with others, but primarily to keep myself on path.

Even when it's hard to admit I have made a mistake, it is easier to retrace steps to see the events in a time line, and when I could have made better choices. Sure it's cool to journal. I have also spoke my fears and mistakes to many others and I have gotten the same response. TIME to nurture healing rather than beat it verbally with a moral lesson.

My daughter has gone through some hard times since she started college in the fall.  Although, of course, I expected more from her. She was too afraid to let me know that she had blown off some of her responsibilities. Instead of holding her head down low. She wanted to escape from life, and start over.

We as parents can place blame on circumstances, genes, surroundings. But that negates responsibility, choice, and freewill. Or we can tackle the issues, make mistakes, but learn together.

The past two weeks has been so chaotic in my house. It's only the three of us, and I Alyssa feels we gang up on her because mom and dad are always on the same page.  We did in in house intervention, friends, family, and strangers. She has some choices to make in life, but they are her choices and failures to make. Mom can't protect her forever! 

Now when it comes to safety, we will do what it takes to keep her safe. If we have to cut up her ids, to make sure she doesn't fall for a online scam.  We will.

You can always replace IDs. You can't replace a child.

It is my responsibility to prepare her for life whether she is 12 or 21.  Don't listen to the "I'm 18" BS. I still stop at my parents house today. To give, to receive.

Never ever give up.

Jacobs High School in 1957, entered the U.S. Navy and served four years on the destroyer, U.S.S. John Paul Jones, alongside his brother, Robert. His marriage to Connie Carver took place Aug. 30, 1963, at St. Stephen's Catholic Church.

Frank was employed at Qwest for 25 years, after transferring to Colorado Springs with AT&T. He retired in 1992. He also worked for the Stevens Point Police Department, and part-time jobs as a home builder and furniture delivery for local businesses.

Frank loved living on Second Lake, boating, fishing, deer and elk hunting, and snowmobiling. Frank was a lifetime member of the Colorado Springs Elks Lodge No. 309 BPOE.

A memorial service was held at the Springs Funeral Home, Colorado Springs, with cremation following.

“I'll meet you on the river, Frank."

I will miss you Uncle Frank. You were chosen by my parents to be my Godfather, and I was honored, even though I only saw you a few times. I love you.

When you have to walk away


In my life, I have had to walk away from relationships that no longer served a purpose.

One might question that statement.

What is the purpose of a relationship?

Two people that offer a mutual friendship, bond, love, hope, and trust.

There are times in your life, that although you might have known someone for decades, that they are the takers, and not the givers.

It might be time to share the light with yourself, and end the one sided relationship.

It is not selfish to protect your heart, and protect your family from people who only call when there is no one else.

Instead of Suffering

Peace is found when you reach out and make an effort to understand and embrace someone who is different from you.
