This Blog….

I want this blog to be more than just raising awareness. I want this blog to also be about – healing. Learning that despite all of the  bullshit (yes, I cuss from time to time) that Ive/you/we’ve endured, that we can have somewhat of a normal life – whatever that may entail for some. Im currently in college majoring in Social Work. I have a loving, supportive husband. Im a (step)mom to beautiful 8 (step)children. Ive had the pleasure of keeping a child out of foster care. I was blessed to have my mom live out the last days of her life in my home before succumbing to cancer.

My past does not define who I am as a whole. If anything, I use it as a way to hopefully inspire others. When I see that someone has liked a post that Ive written – YOU also inspire me to keep writing. To keep pushing. So I will share the good, the bad and sometimes the ugly on here.

Hope you all had a great weekend!


I Asked God…

Let me start off by writing that I am not an overly religious person. In fact, Im more spiritual than I am religious. I’m not here to debate how and why I feel the way that I do. I know what works for me.

My only wish (goal) is to maybe help and inspire others who are and/or have gone through situations that makes you say – what the hell?!?

I don’t have all the answers. I don’t know why seemingly good people are faced with some of the most tragic things no-one should ever have to endure. I don’t know why seemingly bad people “have it all”. I don’t question why anyone attempts suicide. Ive been there (many times) so I know better than to judge.

Life is Life.

I try to be as positive as I can be because I know that one day, I will never have to endure the hurts and pains any longer cause Lord willing, I will be with my Heavenly Father.

So on that note…
