When Tomorrow Starts Without Me…

I had a “Meditation Monday” post in mind for today, but I’ll be setting that aside for another time. Instead, I wish to express my deepest, heart felt condolences to families and friends of the 58 victims of the massacre in Las Vegas overnight. I’d also like to reach out to the 515 people injured in the shooting. (As of this posting) It is always difficult to understand why things like this happen. My heart is breaking for all of you today. No one should have to go through such terror. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.


I originally posted the below poem in May, 2017, as a way of expressing my condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the bombing in Manchester, England

This beautiful poem, titled “When Tomorrow Starts Without Me”, was written by David  M Romano. I was first introduced to the poem when I researched the article Proof of Heaven for my “daily inspiration” series. I hope it brings you a little comfort during this difficult time.

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness! I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, RNCP, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. This is a beautiful post that I feel ministers to anyone and everyone who has suffered such a sudden and tragic loss. I recently experienced this trauma in my own life and family and it feels like nothing on this earth can feel this painful void right now. It is my prayer that all these families will find solace in this peace as well as embrace the love and memories of their loved ones they have lost.

    1. I’m so sorry 😐. These things always seem impossible when you’re going through it. I hate to sound cliche, but speaking from experience, it does get easier. I won’t lie and say it completely goes away. It’s always there. But it does get easier. You learn to deal with a new normal. You learn to cope. You’re in my prayers. 🙏

  2. This is a tragedy and my sympathies are with all those affected. Sadly I think such events will continue unless the USA takes action regarding it’s obsession with “the right to bare arms”. Its true that guns alone don’t kill people (obviously that requires someone to pull the trigger), however the widespread availability (and carrying) of weapons undoubtedly is a major factor in leading to such terrible incidents.
