Meet Lissette aka Moms-Secret


What a beautiful name for a beautiful person, young widow, mother, published author, serious poet and creative writer, who will take you to those dark places and those light places and everywhere else in between while reading her work, which truly showcases her great talent. I believe I understand what Lissette's “secret” is, and maybe in reading her work, you will discover moms-secret too. I am surprised she has not been discovered by thousands of readers yet! Please join in the giving of this well-deserved "Hug" to moms-secret as she is known here on HubPages.

Lissette’s poetry is wondrous and daring at times; that is daring to reveal a bit of herself in each piece she writes. She wishes people to get to know her through her writing, and one will truly do so after reading each piece. The more one reads, the more one knows Lissette.


Widow

Source


Sadly, it appears that not too long after Lissette started writing on HubPages, she became a widow and began writing of the tragic loss of her husband, who she refers to as her Prince. Through her writing, she takes the reader through the many different stages of grief, and she holds nothing back. Her raw emotions come painfully through her written words. One can literally feel what she and her young daughter are experiencing through this sudden tragedy. She did not have her Prince but for a short time and she fights with the reality of having to give him up, but she does not want to do so, of course, and move on, as her friends and family tell her, even with her being so young.


The following dramatic song in the video certainly gets across the feeling of knowing God is present, but not feeling Him when one most needs Him. This can especially occur when one's faith has been shaken to the core and tested. However, even after having gone through so much, one still realizes you are never alone and He is there always.


I thought this video appropriate after reading Lissette's poetry on faith.


Never Alone

Bride Praying

Lissette writes of an especially hard day, for it is her daughter’s ninth birthday, and the first birthday without Lissette’s husband there to celebrate with her little angel.


Angel's Song

Here in this particularly honest write, Lissette explains that her writing lends itself to more than one situation but hides her truths well. This piece is about an internal debate about whether or not she desires to have children in the future. As one may surmise, there is no rejected lover in this case. Her words reveal and express the inner turmoil as she ponders such for her future life, being a mother already and having experienced such great loss at such a young age. This piece is profound and genuine.


Soul Mates

Ascension Earth

Of course, here in this dramatic write, Lissette writes of exactly who her soul mate was and how she could see spending multiple lifetimes with him, if given the opportunity. The only light in her life that compels her to keep going is her eight year old daughter, who she refers to as the angel who is left in her care and, in doing so, is saving Lissette’s life as each day passes.


I Am a Diamond

This is one of the best poems I have read. Lissette's literary gifts of writing and poetry shine brilliantly just like a diamond. Even if you are one to not read poetry, you will enjoy this poem immensely. This piece evokes beauty visually and intrigue with each word. You will not be disappointed in reading this poem which showcases Lissette's talent as an extraordinary poet.


All Alone At Christmas

Here, Lissette, describes herself at being at a Christmas crossroads, as it was the first Christmas without her Prince, and so soon after his death.



Tidal Wave

Abstract Wave

This poem definitely takes one on a tidal wave of raw emotion from anger, sadness and beauty that is haunting. It is a powerhouse of a poem. It may even give you chills. This poem makes a great point that each person grieves and heals differently and at their own pace, where one is not at the point where others think one should be in the process of grieving a great loss.


The Light of the World Still Draws Us to Himself ...

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

— John 8:12

A Unique Contribution From Lissette for this Time of Year


Please enjoy reading this hub where Lissette has included a documentary on the whether or not the Star of Bethlehem really existed. This is an intriguing documentary and brilliant as well.


Please enjoy!


I Hope All Enjoyed My Last "Hug" for 2013


I do hope that all enjoyed reading this "Hug" about an amazing, strong and gifted woman. I, for one, am so glad Lissette writes her emotionally-charged work here on HubPages. My prayer is that all will check out Lissette's work and follow her, for her writing deserves to be read.


May God bless you all. My prayer is that the New Year holds many blessings, love and hope for each one of you.


Thank you for reading!

      Greetings Faith Reaper,

      Another great tribute, perfectly timed about a lovely soul who produces brilliant poetry, reflecting herself, and her work looks to be the open secret of Moms-Secret, if one has eyes to see it.

      I think PHILLYDREAMER wrote about her a while back, and this wonderful dedication is just the ultimate boost for a woman who surely needs and deserves it.

      Only you could write something like this.

      Thank you for the reminder, and send Christmas blessings to two brave, determined and lovely women this morning.

      With Sincere Regards,

      R.Q.

      Hi Dear Devika,

      Thank you for stopping by to read and join in the giving of a "Hug" here to Lissette. I am glad you are always surprised, as Jackie and I do not tell each other who we are giving the next "Hug" to, so we are surprised too. Well, most of the time, we do not tell each other : ) ... And the person does not know about it either, and may never, unless one of their friends share it.

      Yes, I am well, thank you. I pray you are well too and hope that you have the best Christmas ever.

      Many blessings, Faith Reaper

      I have found Hubpages to be a wonderful place to bear my soul through writing and then find myself being so amazed as fellow writers come around me and support me in a multitude of ways.

      This hub and your support will bring your young friend even more supportive friends from this awesome community. My heart hurts for the journey she in on and I pray many join her to cheer her on.

      What a good friend you are my dear friend Faith!

      Thank you for presenting Lisette in your hub, Faith! I am feeling very sad for her! Losing a husband is always hard but so young and with a young child it must be very hard! I will definitely go visit her pages. What a beautiful choice of pictures, Faith! I always find that when you write "a hug of the day" your choice of pictures fit the person exactly!

      Thank you for sharing this other discovery!

      Hi Dear Joelle (kidscrafts),

      Oh, it is my pleasure to present Lissette and my hope that many will read her work and follow. Yes, very tragic indeed to lose her Prince just after a short while of being married.

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments as to my choice of imagery and photos. I try very hard to match it up with the person and I was thrilled to find that dramatic first one, for it truly looks like Lissette to me ... something about her eyes and facial features, so beautiful and dramatic. I appreciate you sharing that with me and I appreciate you have noted such. Most times, the hardest part is finding the perfect imagery and photos, when the writing is much easier, at least for me.

      Thank you for reading!

      Have an awesome weekend.

      Hi Faith, I'm a bit late and almost missed this beautiful tribute to yet another writer. I don't believe I've read Lisette's work, but I'll be heading over to her hubs to take a look, she sounds like a very special lady and well deserving of a mega Christmas hug. I'm so sorry to learn of her husband's death, and can't begin to imagine how tough this first Christmas will be for herself and her daughter.

      You my friend, do a wonderful job of bringing some incredible talent into focus, and attention of other hubbers like myself. The partnership with Jackie have that awesome combination, a pair of good heads and two beautiful hearts. Have a Very Happy Christmas and a splendid New Year.

      Lots of love

      Hi Dear Jo (tobusiness),

      I am so glad you did not miss the "Hug" to Lissette. Thank you so much for your kind words. Oh, you will surely love her work, for it is unlike any I have read yet on HP! Yes, she is past due in receiving a "Hug" for sure! The loss of her husband has not been very recent, but from what I can tell, maybe about two year ago.

      She is still writing awesome poetry, like I have not read before. She is a published author.

      I appreciate your encouragement to both Jackie and I, for we truly attempt to find those whose work we feel needs to be read by many more readers. In other words, their work needs to be appreciated by many more!

      I do hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas too. Hugs, much love, peace and many blessings,

      This amazing gift pulls so much emotion out of me. It is an amazing thing to discover after my long holiday hiatus from hubs. What an amazing thing to do for someone you have never seen or spoken to. I am without words to muster to describe how much gratitude I feel for you and this amazing tribute. Thank you so much for this and for feeling my writing. I love the photos that you paired for me. The song you chose... I had lost it for so long. I remember playing it often in the early days. It was so nice to hear it after so long. I loved it. I loved everything about this and am beside myself, grateful, and humbled. I would have never thought of myself as deserving of such an honor. Thank You.

      Hi Lissette (moms-secret), I am so glad you had a long holiday and were surprised by, hopefully, many new readers and followers! I am so happy you like your tribute or "Hug" as Jackie and I like to call them. It all started back sometime last year when I inadvertently sent Jackie an email that had in the subject line "Hug of the Day" instead oh "Hub of the Day" so she thought that was cute and hence the Hug of the Day was born! The idea is to have more people reading the work of great writers, such as yourself, as your work deserves to be read by many. At first I just gave the "Hug" to those I followed and now we have branched out and found many amazing writers. Plus we love giving "Hugs" whether or not the person ever finds out why they are getting more readers. I have truly enjoyed reading your poems. I hope you and your daughter have a Happy New Year filled with many new blessings and much love,. Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hello newenglandsun, so nice to meet you. Yes, when I began reading Lissette's writing, I immediately thought of that song as I, too, have been through many trials and tribulations and have identified with that song myself many times. Oh really! Oh, so you have done a trubute to Lissette as well ... I am not surprised as her writing is so raw and filled with much emotion, it draws the reader in right there with her. I must seek out and find to what you are referring! Happy New Year, Faith Reaper

      No. I linked that song into a comment on one of her posts because it seemed relevant.

      "The Young Widow - Faith"

      Even bloggers I really like, the farthest I'll go is showing them praise on their blog. I follow really good bloggers. If I did a tribute to Lissette, I'd have to do a tribute to Fr. Aidan Kimel and both would be exceptionally long. I'd also have to do ones for Brian Niemeier and for April Reynolds as well.

      Two of the bloggers mentioned above are on hubpages. The other two, one has a wordpress and the other I don't know. I have a wordpress though. I'll probably end up drawing influences from her book and incorporate it into my blog. I mentioned her on one blog of mine. The one about the Catholic Church being my gymnasium. Maybe you could call that a mini tribute since it was influenced by her post "Why Church?"?

      Wow.

      Lissette and April must have had lots of points docked by myself then.

      Oh dear, yes, that is what they say. I am sorry. I did not realize such either until I saw another hubber with very high scores have to do such too and explained. I checked and that is the case, unfortunately. I guess to cut down on those who maybe spammers, which I know you are not. Blessings, Faith Reaper

      It doesn't seem they mind though. They never tell me anything about it.

      Yes, but it could be flagged and then ... Have a great weekend. We all love Lissette no doubt!

      I ordered a copy of her book. Hasn't come in the mail yet. Anxious to read it because I want to give an honest review of it.

      Other way around. She's saved me from suicide just by saying something.

      Oh, God bless you and her, wow, thank you for sharing and I am glad you are still here. HP just asked me if your comment is spam, I told them no it was not, so they do think you are a spammer.

      Peace and love, Faith Reaper

      Sometimes they think I'm a spammer. On the occasion. Depends.

      Hi Faith Reaper, I must say that you are a great encouraging kindhearted person. As far as I know is that pain creates passionate words. God bless you more and more to be a blessing!

      FaithReaper, your heart is so kind, your spirit so beautiful. God bless you. I do enjoy these "hugs" you give and this article most certainly has drawn my attention. I will be looking into "Moms-Secret" hubpage, very interested in reading her work. You're an amazing person. God bless you!

      Hi mothersofnations,

      I am so glad you like these "Hugs" for it was that year that Jackie Lynnley and I decided to do these for those wonderful hubbers who we thought were not getting enough attention to their writings.

      It all started out in a funny way with the very first "Hug of the Day" as I had sent Jackie an email and in the subject line I inadvertently typed Hug instead of Hub of the Day, and she came up with this idea about us giving "Hugs" alternating weeks. She would do one then the next week I would give one.

      Moms-Secret is an intriguing writer and lovely person, who has been through many trials in this life.

      It was a fun year of doing the "Hugs".

      (((Hugs))) to you this day and God bless you too!

      Thanks for introducing me to a new fabulous writer Faith. Your tender heart shone brightly as you highlighted the strength in this remarkable woman. Our faith is constantly tested but blessed are those who overcome. I know many people who have turned from faith when they felt they couldn't find or trace God. I just live for the promise. That one day there will come a time when there would be no more suffering; and every tear will be wiped from our eyes.

      Yes, indeed, what a beautiful day that will be. It is an amazing promise to cling to ...no more suffering or tears!

      God bless you
