3 Year Reflection 🧠

Main picture is at 4:32 pm on 5/16/18. It’s the last picture from that day. 15-20 minutes later my husband would get a call from my friend that I was in a bad accident just before 5pm he got the call. On 5/10/21 we went out to look at some homes to put on my […]

Jaxson is 16

Happy 16th Birthday to my son Jaxson. I can’t believe he’s 16. This kid amazes me daily with his strength and determination and no excuses attitude.

Understanding Your Brain Injured Friends

It makes me think of expectations that people have. Like people saying “well you haven’t called” or “you haven’t invited me over” as a reason why they don’t call or keep in contact. It makes me think of how so many people that we were pretty good friends with are no longer in our life […]

No Alcohol For 4 years!

4 years! I never anticipated I would remove alcohol from my life and be happy about it and one hundred percent ok with it. But I did and I could not be happier. Alcohol did not serve me. It was not what was best for me ever in any amount. I couldn’t just have one […]

I had so many plans for 2020 that just did not happen. It’s the last day of 2020 and I could not be happier. But what did I get out of this pandemic? How did it happen for me, what did I learn from one hell of an unexpected year? I have learned to really […]
