I am so proud of my darling wife. The work she does may at times feel thankless and uneventful, but she is doing incredible work helping the incarcerated.

I was brought to tears today. I was struggling with work and my own personal spiritual journey. I nearly wanted to give up. But I knew I’d be letting myself and my husband down.

I finally found the will to get online and dig into my list of things to do.

I manage Stone City Blog. It’s a collection of blogs written by men in prison. I don’t get paid for this. I’d call it charity/volunteer/non-profit work for right now.

I saw that I had about 60 emails from inmates, all waiting for me to post their work. I was expecting a large number like that. After all, I let things back up, knowing very well that I shouldn’t have let that happen.

I had such a sheltered and spoiled background. I breezed through my childhood so fast that it’s hard to remember it. I wanted so badly to grow up and be an adult, a wife, and a mother.

I had a pretty awesome upbringing with loving parents, a big wholesome family, a kind religious community, and I was even a Girl Scout. But is it possible that sometimes things can be too perfect that you miss out on living and experiencing?

I have Stone City Blog on my mind right now. It is a collection of blogs written by men in prison, which I manage. Honestly, I’ve struggled with putting in all those hours helping men who couldn’t give me much in return.

THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO STEVEN D. JENNINGS POST TITLED:

SAME SITUATION ,DIFFERENT MIND SET

He was describing a situation that he got into on the basketball court which almost turned ugly . It was steps from a all out brawl between two people who are known for being aggresive fighters .

I think that it would have been a really good fight , yes there is such a thing as a good fight. It may not have been right or even the mature thing to do, but it might have been epic .

To make a long story short , i am the scott that steven was talking about. That day we both had a decision to make: to act like men and reason, or to act like the animals that the world thinks that we are.

We both had and still do have alot to lose , however…
