He was my North, South, East and West.*

He was not there…

Second after second.

Minute after minute.

Day after day.

Week after week.

Month after month.

Year after year.

Where are you?

Why have you not come home?

Why have you not called me?

Why have you not written?


What have I done?

How could I have hurt you this much?

So much that you have cut the umbilical cord – my son.

Even at 15 you can make your own choices. How could you forget 15 years?

Rationally I understand. How could your father hurt me the most?

By taking you away from me my Beautiful son…

8th Annual Market Day in Carol County at the Courthouse in Port Tobacco, MD

My name is Terry Maxwell. I am an author and an advocate on shedding the light on sexual abuse, verbal abuse and domestic violence. My mission is to pass on experience, strength and hope to those in need of help.

I have not been on my blog for several months due to health issues. I am now back and ready to fight for the cause.

Here is information on the next event…

Charity Paul the Community Educator for the Center for Abused Persons In Carol County, MD  along with several volunteers will be joining me this Saturday to pass out information and answer any questions you may have. We’d love to have you join us for the 8th Annual Market Day at the Courthouse in Port Tobacco, MD.

The CHARLES COUNTY GARDEN CLUB will hold their annual plant sale. Visit the plant sale for locally grown flowering plants, shrubs, and ground covers.
