Another year gone by. This is 25 years. One year less than I was when it all went down. It's been a tough...very tough year with lots of pitfalls and setbacks and major life changes. And we are really close to having everything repaired from the Hurricane.
I made a challenge to myself to go from my 50th birthday to my 51 birthday without a drink......and I made it and it really wasn't hard despite all the crap that life threw at us this year. Raising 4 kids is challenging enough but having chronic illness and autism mixed in can get pretty taxing....but We feel so blessed . I love every one of them and I'm looking forward to their futures and where they will go......it's a good season we are entering.
Today I am somber but content and thankful. Thank all of you friends that have reached out and let me know that I'm never alone....I've got a whole gang of Drakians that have my back.
peace and love to all of ya....even Dewayne.
