The time has come again for us to finish out another year with family, friends, food, and sometimes gifts. I look back at 2018 in amazement of all that has happened and everything that didn't. I changed. Life is and never will be the same and I can't believe I am where I am today. … Continue reading The countdown … 46, 45, 44..
I've been trying to find my way, moving around a lot. Changing my mind. Making decisions. Life was a little fuzzy. I'd like to say I was growing the whole time, but there were moments of silence when my heart couldn't handle the sound of life. Silence is a strange friend.

I've always been strong, courageous, a warrior. I was in the shower thinking about a few memories from my childhood and starting thinking about one of my favorite songs as a child.
