Sometimes I find it ironic how I can be so thankful for my life. My thoughts often take me to really bad places. It’s hard not to be fearful of our future………….however, shouldn’t everyone be a bit fearful? I would imagine that a lot of people on the outside looking in on our life might […]

I have to correct something that I posted in my last entry. When I was talking about my mom talking behind my back, I was referring to a situation not that I felt she was talking behind my back. She really was standing behind me talking to someone. I do not want to discourage ANYONE, […]
