Inner Soul Confession: Finding Comfort

Not Always About Music

Finding Comfort!

Best Friend: My mom

Why: She’s been the consistent rock in my life — after my father lost his life 32 years ago, raised three young children while sacrificing her sanity, social life and well being for our sake; worked two jobs in order to keep a roof over our heads and food in our bellies; when I didn’t value myself, she did; when I lost faith in my ability, she was there to build me up; when I made really dumb (life threatening) mistakes, she was there to dust me off and give me a clean start.

My belief: Whomever leaves this earth in the form of life as we know it first, the God I trust in will reunite us in love and spirit.

Proudest moment: When my mother told me that I am ‘her hero’ and how she admires the strides I’ve made in life

To you reading this, I say: Move past the mistakes made by others, life is way too precious! If you have a living parent, cherish your time with them and do all you can to make their everyday a happy one. Put aside YOUR selfish ways — there’s no time for it!

Why share this: I am transparent; no reason to live life behind a curtain; and if my words can facilitate a notion to salvage a previously soured relationship, then I’ve done my work!

Live, while you can

Love, around the clock

Laugh, always


2 Corinthians 1:3

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.

*thank you, Shawn!*

  3. Well said my sis – I am sure Mom is beaming from this post. 🙂 Give her a big hug for me, love you all!

    P.S.- The last picture is my favorite picture of you guys.

    • She hasn’t had the energy to go online, but it will be there awaiting her perusal (and maybe a few tears *lol*)

      Only the truth about my mommy ~ got nothing but love for her!

  4. Beautiful sentiments – Your wonderful memories will help fuel you through the hard days.

  5. Detrel,

    Those flowers smell real good!

    Hopefully, you have touched someone to make them think twice. We need to make that one time count.

    Love you and Ms. Helen

    • my mother is very much into flowers, so I’ve got to give her all she can while she can sniff them and while I can share on my end

      praying that my words will either provide comfort to someone else or may result in a reunion of sorts

  6. Very well written. Keep it up. Writing heals.
    Love yall!
