Happy New Years Eve and Happy Anniversay to Me!

2017 is officially coming to a end, as I celebrate my 13th wedding anniversary. We have seen many ups and downs in our marriage. Times when I just thought it wasn’t worth fighting another year, but here we stand 13 years strong. I must admit every sense I started getting myself on track I was able to understand him more. He still doesn’t understand the mental illness, but he does understand that I need my space when I’m having an episode. He not only provides for me, he also tries to go out his way to make life happy. So to those of you who are fighting to save your marriage, and believe it’s over after the first year….take it from me, look in the mirror and see if you can do better. Tonight I have been invited to many places, but have to admit my son is on my mind real heavy. I believe he will be ok, and that he will get through this strong. I just worry about his mindset and how much he will miss his son. I’m going to do my best to keep his spirits up, and step in to help Gen (mom) with my grand baby, I still can’t fathom him his life going this way. So everybody I’m wishing you all a Happy New Year and many blessings. For those of us who suffered so much, may God give us double for our trouble. Chat soon….

Don’t Give Up…Dare To Hope🙌🏾

Daring To Hope

Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. (NLT) ( Lamentations 3:21-22 )

Have you stopped daring to hope? At times, our hope in our dreams and plans on this earth to do great things diminish when we don’t see a sliver of success. But don’t let that stop you from believing in yourself. Remember, even though we may not see God, our hope in His love and grace is always there. Keep hoping no matter what.

Saturday Morning Vibes

So I spent yesterday after work in bed, you know like I use to when I was severely depressed. I didn’t much care for that shit at all, I didn’t get anything done. Feeling so lost about my son, but staying in bed isn’t going to change a damn thing. “Radical Acceptance” this is what I learned in therapy. I can’t change his situation, so I must deal with it. Yes, it’s going to be hard, but sitting around the house is not the answer. So I’m out and about this morning, shopping for my wedding anniversary tomorrow. Think I’ll have me a couple of mimosas at brunch and shop till I drop!! I’m not ending my year sad and depressed. Wishing you all a great last Saturday of this year….chat soon!!!

Feeling Lost!

As I look forward to the New Year, I also wish I could turn back time. I wish my little boy was still little, I wish he still needed me, I wish I could take his place in that prison cell. As the days pass away, I can’t help but feel so lost. He’s still my baby and there’s nothing I can do for him now. I’m trying to be strong, glad he can’t see my eyes now.
