When The Good Girl/Guys Win--AKA--Why Karma Rocks.

So, the Internet Webs are in an uproar today about the impending divorce of dear, sweet Brangelina; ie: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. But they have children. But they've been together for so long! They are such wonderful humanitarians. It's such a shame. 

I call bullshit.

Do you know who's having a GREAT day, even though she'll never admit it? One Ms. Jennifer Aniston.

It's been a long time since Jen and Brad's divorce, and Jen took a LONG time to find that right guy for her to hitch her star to. Because she's a smart girl. BUT.

We all remember how she was wronged. We all know that Angelina was busy being Brad's sidepiece when they were making Mr. and Mrs. Smith, while Jen was at home, trusting that her husband wouldn't be banging the weirdo who made out with her brother, married BillyBob and wore a vial of his blood around her neck.

Classy chick.

Let me tell ya something folks, going to Africa, doing humanitarian work, trying to rebuild your gross…

Why I Won't Hide My Loss To Make You Feel Better.

"Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life". -Anne Roiphe




Do you ever go through life wondering why some people just seem to have targets on their backs for profound loss?  Yes, everyone loses something, someone, sometimes. We all experience it at some point.

And then there are those of us who just feel the familiar jitters of anxiety creeping along our edges, knowing that, yet again, profound loss is upon us, ripping our sense of comfort from our days, stripping our normalcy, our smile, even our faith to an extent.

There is always a story worse than yours, someone who has lost more, whose story is more heartbreaking, who has us saying "Thank God that's not me". But for those of us who experience big losses several times over, other people's stories no longer matter. It is personal and bitter and hard and it doesn't matter what anyone else has to relay about it. It just HURTS.

I lost another baby this weekend. In six month…
