I have not been very active here since joining. I've had a lot of things to deal with. In fact I have been a recluse for about a year and a half. That stops now. LIfe is short, and while I still have a family and a life I would like to get to know all of you and enjoy being in the world together.
Tomorrow I turn 40. It's kind of a big one I guess. Bigger yet is that I survived the last year of my life! This year I lost my husband, my home, almost lost my company and had three surgeries. Most of the year was spent cleaning up the mess, surviving and trying to heal and move on…. So i've moved on, I'm still here, and now I'm bulletproof. I survived the worst time in my life. I have returned to the land of the living and I intend to celebrate 40 for the rest of the month!
Most importantly, as part of my return from the dead I want to celebrate life by getting to know all the people I'm related to.
