Victims, Abusers, Survivors

By |September 6th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

As a victim of domestic violence there comes a time in that span of abuse that the abused can turn into the abuser. Now with that said, that person isn’t your typical abuser. That person turns into the desperate, feeling of all is lost and will take something extreme to get out of.  I […]

The Hero Within…

By |September 6th, 2019|Family|5 Comments

Someone recently told me I was his hero. I honestly didn’t know what to say to that. I mean I am just Amy…mom to Dusty and Kayla, wife to James. It’s not like I’m kin to the queen of any country or some Nobel prize winner. Of course they are human too. Just because […]

Simplicity is overrated, isnt it?

By |September 6th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

It’s now 2016. Who would have ever thought we’d see these days come and not be in flying cars like the Jetson’s cartoons. It seemed so doable back them and to now look back on just how far we haven’t come, it makes one wonder just what our future really holds.

Time went so fast […]

Wisdom-less with laughter

Let’s see…where did I last leave this? I don’t think I quite remember where I left my purse much less the last post. I guess I could have looked back and see where I left it but …oh well. I am just going to wing it.

Well Kayla had to have oral surgery on […]

Stitches, flat tires and birthday cake

Have you ever been in one of those periods where you really just want to disconnect from the world around you and just immerse yourself in your own little bubble? Yeah, well that is kind of where I have been this past several, several weeks. Dealing with my husband and his “service connected issues” […]

There’s always a good side

By |August 23rd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

No matter what things myself or my family have gone through I have managed to look at things from a different perspective. Now I won’t sit here and say there was something good about getting beat or raped but I will say it has taught me to love myself more than I did, it’s […]

What we did without, now becomes an almost obsession

By |August 23rd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

As a single mother I struggled just to keep food on the table. I would make grocery trips with the kids stroller and was always limited to the dollar amount spent and quantity because I could only fit so much in the stroller. Now at one point early on we lived maybe a mile […]

Seeing signs

By |August 23rd, 2019|Family|0 Comments

I have been reading posts from other domestic violence survivors in support groups. I see myself in so many of the stories I read. The intimidation, manipulation, the “love” the abusers claim they have for their victims. It kills me because as I remember all that I was told and all he claimed I […]

From then to now

By |August 13th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

My life has been moving so slow it seemed the past week or so. Yet no time for things that needed that extra attention. My husband had slowed to an almost halt and trying to motivate him is beyond frustrating. He has no idea some of the things I say or do are to […]

Past turn Present

Happy Memorial Day to everyone, even if you aren’t military affiliated or know the true meaning behind it I wish you the best.

The past few days for me have been a bit unnerving not just for me but for my family as well. You see on Thursday I had court […]
