This missive contains updated information and a whole bunch of love!!! After blogging for two years now, I have come to a place of gratitude and acceptance. Yes, I really am a writer, and this fact had to be hammered home a million times…before I would believe. I have worked in virtually every field you can imagine: waitress, hostess, legal secretary, health food, private duty nursing, hospice, radio, advertising, and at my lowest point a janitor for a local beer distributor. I am quite sure I’ve left a few vocations out, but my point here is: I never understood why my employment always ended in hysteria and self degradation. It is now my understanding that God did indeed want me to write; my only regret is that I didn’t listen sooner.
I want to introduce myself to my new subs, and also thank each and every one of you who took the chance and subscribed! Here’s a few things about me that you may not know, and the categories I have listed pretty much describes the subject matter I write on, have experience with, and blabber about from time to time.
I have struggled with a few things in this life, but God has always been with me, Jesus has never abandoned nor forsaken me. I am not proud of so much of my drinking/drugging career-yet it has given me the compassion and understanding necessary to navigate this world untethered-by anyone or anything that tries to hold me back, namely being my family, but that’s another story for another day.
I love nature, gardening, animals, worship, and my husband-who made it possible for me to attain sobriety. Those were frightening days, and there were times where homicidal ideation floated around in my mind…but suicide attempts were what manifested.
I suffer from depression, CPTSD, anxiety and Lyme. I do not consider any of this a handicap, and neither should you.
Rejoice in this day the Lord has made!!! Be glad in the perilous times, as the Holy Spirit is within, guiding you-after the storm His blessings are out of this world.
And jeepers creepers, gosh almighty…
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
