For those that know me, I have always been a glass-half-full person, and despite the many challenges I’ve had to overcome in my life I’ve always been the type of person to find the silver lining in any and all situations. I have always had this belief, that God and I have had this connection […]
Let me start by saying this is one of the toughest things I have ever been through. I am not trying to be insensitive to anyones feelings at this time I need to do this blog for myself. This is my way to process and grieve.
