MISS YOU:  A gift from a mother to her son.

This is Joel’s personal journey for understanding after the untimely passing of his mom from breast cancer. Because as we keep learning there is no doubt that life is short.  

The people that you expect to be there your entire life, especially the ones that raise you from an infant to an adult, should always be around. They should have the opportunity to have the retirement life they dreamed of and to experience their grandchildren as adults. They should be having fun! For his mom, it wasn’t to be. Cancer stole her away from her family at the young age of 66.

In Joel’s words: “The pain and anguish of losing my only parent was almost unbearable. I needed to come to grips with not having her beautiful smile or contagious laugh nearby. I couldn’t fulfill my childhood promise to “always take care of her.” I was unable just to call her. It took me two years of searching on how to say goodbye. And in that same time, I discovered seven special gifts that Mom left me that allows me to keep her spirit alive in others. Mom, I will always miss you, but now I understand that you are never really gone.”

And if you would like to read a fictional story about conquering your fears and being a Rebel, may we suggest Joel’s fictional Martial Arts Adventure Story:

Defenders of S.M.A.S.H.: Every Hero has a Beginning.

In a world not so different from our own, a young man named Justin finds himself battling for his life as he attempts to rescue children from the evil Governor Mont’s Selection process. As his odds of success dwindle, a chance meeting with two strangers, Cassie, a young lady with a mean left hook, and an ancient mentor called the Professor, reveal a secret that might help save his world. May their hope to succeed prevail!

As you can tell, this story is about HOPE. The hope to succeed. The hope to thrive. And in the world of Defenders (as in real life) hope requires help. Justin’s friends, the martial arts, and Justin’s ultimate belief that his world could be better if he did something, drives his quest to give hope where none existed. Justin learns that it’s all about having the confidence, commitment, and compassion to fight for what you believe in, to use your talents to give hope to others, and to learn from everything (and everyone) around you to become a better human being.
