My life changes every day. Significantly. I am 49 years old. (Pet peeve #1, I hate when people say ‘years young’) I have 5 children, 2 bonus children, 2 daughters in law, son in law, 5 grandchildren, 2 wonderful young women I hope will be daughters in law, 7 dogs, countless cats and a husband that makes me smile every day. My mother is still living and is my biggest cheerleader, my dad passed when I was 9. I have 3 brothers. no sisters.
Five years ago I was diagnosed with Coronary Artery Spasms. A year ago, with Multiple Sclerosis. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride. I was kind of crazy before, I don’t know what you would class my personality as now. You would be hard pressed to do so, as it changes every 45 minutes or so.
I am a Christian and I believe that everything happens for a reason. In this blog, that’s what I would like to explore, the reasons. Life, death, grief, marriage, divorce, anger, bitterness, glee, happiness, loss, love and joy. I need an outlet for all that swirls around in my frenzied brain.
I take pictures, love books, love to be around my family and I cuss. I think music is part of our souls. Sometimes I can’t listen to anything but 1940’s music because everything else depresses me. When I’m in a good frame of mind, I love all kinds of music.
I hope you will take this trip with me. Some days it will be a hot air balloon ride and sometimes it will be a plane crash. I hope I make you laugh and weep and clap and if we are both lucky, maybe we will learn something along the way…..
