Where do we go from here???

I know most of you will not believe. That is OK.  Over the past few years I have had the chance to see what some may call Ghosts, shadow people.

I have always believed in spirits. I guess it goes back to childhood watching Halloween cartoons. My favorite still is the Headless Horseman.

 Something always struck me about the afterlife. I was never afraid of it. I have experienced death in many ways. I have seen accidents where people have died. I have been in rooms when I was CNA when some passed.  I have seen patients die in other rooms while sitting with Liz in hers.   I know that this is not the end.

Some of you know about the experience we had in Coeur D’Lane, Idaho. Liz and I both woke up at the same time and could feel a presence. I opened my eyes and saw a big black shadow at the foot of our bed with red eyes staring at us. Liz did not want to open her eyes.  It stayed for a few more seconds and than was gone.  We never saw or felt it again.

This is what I saw. Just at the foot of our bed, not on the side. 
We currently live in my Great Grandparents old house. From the first week we moved in we have seen shadow person (s).  One night Liz and I were in the front room watching TV and we both saw a shadow poke its head out from the kitchen and back in. We both looked at each other and said did you see that.  It is always in the kitchen area where I see it. I have never seen it in any other room.  McKinley has told us about great grandma and how she protects her in her room. She says lives in her closet.  McKinley says she is very nice.   Liz recently has seen a taller shadow person who has tapped her on the shoulder a few times and whispered to her, she says its a man.   I have not seen him yet.  We do not have any sense that these are scary or that we should be fearful, like the one in Idaho.

I do know that our eyes and mind are not playing tricks on us.  I love knowing that OUR loved ones are around us at all times. Just because they are gone, does not mean that they are really gone.

It is OK to have an opinion

The past few weeks i have received some emails and heard from people that I just need to shut up and if I hate Utah so much i should move and why do I care what the Church does or says. 

Well, i will tell you why.

I don't need to shut up. I have that right to say whatever i want, the same as you. I can state my opinions and if it rubs you the wrong way. So be it. That is fine. I am sure you will say things that I won't agree with, but I will never tell you to leave or ask you why do you care? Its good to care, its good to have opinions and thoughts. Don't shy away from offending anyone. It is OK to have an opinion.

I do no hate living here in Utah. I love it here. I grew up here. I have moved away and came back. And why do you think that is. Its because of the 4 Seasons, the mountains, nature, wildlife, small town feel, friends and family, and of course Liz and McKinley.  Liz enjoys this area. She loves the seasons. Warm, hot and humid climates are hard on her due to her HAE. So we stay here for her health. Plus all of her Medical Doctors are here. Why would we want to start over after almost 4 years of training these Doctors about her disease and the love and care they show Liz would be lost somewhere else.  Doctors here personally call and talk to Liz and see how she is doing. We could not get that in a bigger more populated city/area. So we are not leaving anytime soon, unless something drastic happens.

And the dreaded constant question of why do i care what the Church says or does? 

 Well since my start of parting ways with the Church I have had time to really look at some press releases by them and am sick and tired of them pushing their Agendas without as much as a whimper from most of our local, State and National politicians. Its seems that whatever the Church says they take it as " Oh, it has to be Right if the Church says it." They influence the LDS Politicians with Approaches and Reaching out and if any of them oppose the Church's ideas or thoughts Pressure mounts and other LDS politicians start to Approach and Reach out to the out of line Politician.  They are deciding for us what the best steps are for OUR families, our medical needs and our Rights of Free Speech and a whole other area of liberties that we enjoy. 

Here is a link to what i wrote to the local paper. Enjoy

So again, I say. It is OK to have an opinion.  Share it, don't hold back how you feel, if it something that is offensive to someone, that is one them, not you.  Life is all about constantly learning and realizing your full potential. For some its easy to see what they have to offer. For others it takes years to develop that. Its taken me years of hiding mostly who I was. I am done doing that. Liz's health problems have shown me that life is just too damn short too worry about.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
