What a woefully stressful few years you have had, but I do believe in new beginning and new starts. I hope this is the day it starts for you.

Yes, let's turn these woes into peace and joy!!! =)


although Holly, even with all these woeful years, I still can't complain, you know?! I have a beautiful healthy loving son, a job, a roof over my head, my family and friends, my health and my travels. life is good with the little moments! but still a little less stress would do me good!

Thanks for being a loyal reader, even if I'm so in and out on the blogosphere! Happy New Year to you!

yeah--life can be a shitstorm sometimes.

I won't bore you with my list of craptacularness. It's ri-donk-u-lous.

And I can't remember the last time I had a vacation--I barely have $$ to pay my rent, etc.

BUT--I am not in the midst of hurricanes, floods, earthquakes or any of those horrors.

So, count your blessings and you and Mathew rock on.

me again....
you are a beautiful strong woman. Your son sounds like an amazing little man.

And somewhere out there is a man who will appreciate you for who you are. Screw the ex.

I love seeing your big smile as you hold Mathew in the pictures that you share here on the blog. You're an amazing woman with a strong, loving spirit. I know that more and more happiness awaits you. Thanks for being so honest and real with us here.

By the way, your ex never deserved you!
