The long glance backwards

I'm pretty sure no one looks at this blog anymore, but just in case.... I wanted to say that I am sitting here with tears in my eyes and gratitude in my heart. I was randomly clicking on some of my old posts and they were ripping my heart out. A few years ago I was in such a DARK place in my life. I know now that had it not been for this blog and the readers back then, that I would NOT have made it through many of those days. My first thought was to erase this blog and release it all to the universe. But, I'm not ready to lose this record of the road I traveled to become the person I am now and who knows, maybe I will start writing again...

I know so many of you stranger-friends won't see this post, but I guess I just wanted to say thank you anyways. I also wanted to say that my life is so full now. I feel strong, confident, and happy. I fill my days painting, hanging with my beautiful son and going to school - which I will be finishing in the coming Fall semester!!

The bigger picture is now so clearly visible. I'm glad there were people here that could see it when I wasn't able to. Peace.
