Depending on the stage in life, my quotes can change. I have lived by many. Each one representing something different in my life. Today, I am living by one that is helping me get to the next phase of life. The phase where the children have grown, and no longer need me. The phase where your children are building their own lives. The role you have is no longer the same for them. This has by far been the hardest time in my life, the changes taking place in my life are completely out of my control. That scares me, I don’t like all the things that are happening. But I just have to smile and nod, I also have to understand that this time is my time. I am building my life back, it is about me now. I am in another time in life where I can fill my time with things that interest me.
The quote that I am living by today is this:
That’s it friends, “and now I will do what’s best for me”
Watch it happen, its in the works.
Until next time my lovelies, good night and god bless~

Welcome to my blog~
My name is Chrissy. I’m the proud mom of two great young adults and happily married for 25 years to the love of my life. I am making this year 2018 the year I complete my memoir, i am bunkering down and completing this project that I started many years ago. I am finding it challenging reliving some of the moments that I have tried so hard to forget. Sometimes retelling a story can be soothing maybe even a time of healing. But living with PTSD has brought new threats to the peace I strive so hard for each day.
My hopes with this blog is to share with you our story of tragedy, guilt, pain, perserverence, triumphs and love. To write about our struggles, battles, hopes and dreams after a devastating accident that left our son with catastrophic injuries. We have overcome staggering odds, fighting, laughing and striving for acceptance and equality. Working towards living our best life with a son in a wheelchair, a mother with guilt, a father with strength and a daughter to make us smile.
It’s our story, it’s how we have found the grace in grief and how we can hopefully inspire you to do the same~xo
