The poem My Living Grace was written in honor of my niece Olivia Grace O’Neil. She is a true warrior and survivor as my joyous heartbeat demonstrating humor, excitement and curiosity in living life with authenticity.

As I fall apart, I pray for living grace,

As I wake up from this storm, I pray for living grace,

Seeking peace from negativity to myself and others, I truly pray for living grace.

For grace has indeed saved me from all heartache and all pain,

And I know that this same grace will lead me toward healing and restoration in all life’s gain.
