This is the beginning of something new for me... blogging. As a matter of fact, the past several years have been all about new beginnings for me. Most of which I have not liked.
I was pretty content with my life. Married- both of us with great jobs. Two daughters living at home and two older step-daughter who had made a life for themselves. We seemed to be doing a pretty good job getting along with the ex's in our lives. Attended church on a regular basis- really thinking that I was doing everything "right"! Of course life had it's issues but nothing I couldn't handle. You see, I always thought I had "big" shoulders and could handle anything... And then it all kinda fell apart....
My 15 yearold at the time decided to move to her dads (absolutely devistation hit me)- 10 months later my husband got layed off from a job he'd been doing all his life (more devistation)- 8 months after that we started the ball rolling on opening our own business, dumping everything we own into it- 3 months after that, I left the job that I had been at for 16 years (another very difficult time)-
and this is where my blogging begins.... trying to figure out how to keep a positive attitude in the midst of all this turmoil- with the possibility of reaching out to others and just saying... "you're not alone."
