Many things have happened over the past 10 months since I last wrote. My favorite person in the world left my life, my Mom passed away September 9, 2011 of Brain Cancer. She fought a long 18 month courageous battle and in the end her voice was taken from her. She left a long legacy of service and love. We miss you EVERYDAY Mom! I also went through some painful moments, after I lost my Mom, almost losing my marriage. The death of my mother just accentuated the deep issues Justin and I were having and it was a very rocky last few months of the year. Maybe one day I will write about it but for now it is too private and painful to talk about. The year ended with me being laid-off at work and having no job to go to from there. It made for a difficult Christmas but together as a family we got through. This new year of 2012 is a New Dawn for myself personally. I have so much to learn, so much to do, so much to say! I am hoping you can follow me through the journey I will be undertaking...for now I will say it is Back to the Basics for me...ALL THE WAY BACK...Starting with a NEW BLOG TEMPLATE...cleaner, easier to follow...More to come soon!!!
