Wow! Very impressive my friends. In just the last week we added 30 new subscribers. Welcome to all of you!
There is a reason this is happening. This site reaches out to all veterans and their families to give them hope. Every post will be directed to sharing thoughts and ideas on how to cope in this not so friendly world.
I have been reaching out for months and the response is fantastic. Keeping joining me here to get help for veterans with PTSD, TBI, Depression, anxiety, war wounds, etc.
What is on your plate? Do you have days when you wish you could stay in bed? Are there times when the storms seem too strong? Do you feel uncomfortable around other people? You are certainly not alone.
I am a member of a social network called RallyPoint. It is a network just for veterans and their families. There are over 1.8 million members there. I love RallyPoint. I have made so many new friends there. I have helped some who are hurting, and some have helped me through some dark times. Totally support them and please check them out yourself.
Remember that you are a special person. There is no one else like you. You are unique.
You are capable of doing anything you attempt. Don’t let the naysayers tell you that it can’t be done.
If you buckle up and ride the world in the terrible way it is now, you will be a winner. You will stand above all the noise, and turmoil.
I have been near death!
Back in 2001, I was a basket case. I couldn’t function properly. I was driving my Ford Explorer one day and I was crying. I didn’t know why. It was getting pretty bad, so I turned into a high school parking lot and stopped. I was getting worse. The windows were all fogged up from my sobbing.
I was sitting there thinking of checking out of this hotel called earth.
I finally cried out to god, “ I can’t take this anymore!” Instantly I stopped crying and the windows started clearing up. It was if God said, “It is about time you came back to me . Now let me carry you the rest of the way.”
My life completely changed that day. I am not saying everything was rosy right away. I still had some struggles, but knowing that God was there with me, gave me strength to carry on.
I went home and opened my desk drawer, and saw some journals I had been writing. They were full of my hurts, but also some days that were good. I realized that this needed to be written. I wrote a book called, “Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World.” I was able to get it published. It went on to win a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards.
So now, I am on my second book that I started about three years ago. It is called, “Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the Trenches of Life.” It reaches out to all veterans who are seeking hope.
I will be updating you on the progress of this book, and share some excerpts from time to time. If you would like to read those excerpts, please subscribe at the top of this page where it says “Subscribe,” When you do all future posts will directly to your inbox.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all….never, ever, give!
