They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I tried my best to write a blog entry but was unsuccessful (multiple times). You see when I share my story…it sometimes causes me mental distress to do it. I relive the situations so others understand and become aware that this can happen to anyone at any time. I also do it to avoid those awkward conversations that could frankly take hours for me to really tell you how I am or how I feel. Today is the one year anniversary of my snail and although I get mad at it often…and hate the pain it causes me on a daily basis it has saved my life more than once. I couldn’t write a long blog this time..because my tears got in the way. I usually try to only post positive, upbeat and heartfelt blog posts. However, the truth is…I’m sad, mad, grateful, and beyond blessed today. Thank you to all my friends and family who help remind me everyday that I’m still me. I’m a wife, a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a cousin, a niece, a daughter-in-law, a best friend, a friend, and someday I hope to be an inspiration to others.
