Life has given me ups, downs and in-betweens, that's for sure. But the thing I am most grateful for, has been the "Angels" that have been placed in my life!
I have had my struggles with family, which I am sure that that will be endless... however, one constant, has been my friends, or rather what I like to refer to as my "Angels" on my "Dream Team"!
It may have not been apparent at the time, and the world may have felt as it was ending... BUT as I look back, I have always had my "Angels" by my side.
I mentioned that through my blogging, my desire is to be able to help someone else through my experiences... which in turn in my eyes would have made it worth it having gone through what I did. All the days and nights that I spent in fetal position, all the tears shed, all the moments longing for my children... ALL OF IT WOULD BE WORTH IT if I can spare someone else from going through it.

Monday, when Dean, Calley and I were headed to the beach, we were indecisive as to where we wanted to go... so we just went where our feet took us...
Before I knew it, I spent my day not only with my family, but with a new Angel in my life!! Alysia. Not only that, but as we talked and shared, I discovered that we were meant to meet! You see, she is going through a horrible divorce from a controlling man, who wants to take her children from her! As I shared my story with her, as well as my blog, it was as if the heavens opened up and was shinning on us both! Seriously!!
I do not want to get too personal with her story, and I do not know if you want to call it fate, us meeting that is... however, I certainly think so and sincerely hope that I can help her fight and not give up.
For a mother, it is second nature to put our children's needs before our own, and with that said, we need to do what is right for them, even if it takes a lifetime. Believe me you never want to hear the words... "why didn't you fight harder for me?!" ... as I did from my Logan. It broke my heart! and I thought I fought... I just saw how tired their little faces were of all the court dates, counseling, etc... but I should have gone to trial! "Shoulda, coulda, woulda!!!"
Alysia, was not the only "Angel" placed in my path this week...
Last night I had the most amazing night at one of my dearest "Dream Team" Angels... :) Talk about a house full of angels... Jeannie has been a part of my life for twenty-five years now!! We met as neighbors, and not only that but we were pregnant with our first borns... who ultimately were born nine days apart!!
Jeannie, has seen me get knocked down (figuratively speaking), and witnessed my marriage to my sons' father... she even socked him in the stomach once! Got him good too!!!
Prior to my heading over to her home, I received a text from her asking if it was ok to have one of her many children over too because she herself just broke up with her (controlling and verbally abusive man, several years her elder) boyfriend. I told Jeannie... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Of course not!!!
When we got there... Jeannie shared with me that she thought they were supposed to get together tomorrow night, however my Angel was thinking... Diana needed to come over TONIGHT!!! It was meant to be!!!
What an amazing young lady. Diana is my eldest son's age, 24, and already has seen the devil, more than once! (ha ha- just kidding, oh well, maybe not!) SO sad to see someone so young going through such ugliness in a relationship! The great thing about it... they did not marry and do not have children together!!! That definitely is a plus... now, to get all the ugliness out of her and bring her up to the place she should be at! Hold her head up high, believing in herself and best of all... loving herself!!
Diana, first of all... you made it through night one!! Major accomplishment!! and secondly... you have not only Jeannie by your side, but Chelsea & Becki (angels in training!! heck not!!... they are already Angels... and they're mine too!! - after all their mama is Jeannie!!!) Be strong and know that you can always count on ALL OF US!
I know I had, and continue to have bad experiences from my marriage to my boys' father... and I never EVER thought I would say this... BUT...
I truly feel blessed for having gone through what I did with my children and their father... today I am a strong woman because of it! It is said that we should embrace our experiences in life, after all, it makes us who we are today!!
I have close friends who nurture me and make me laugh.
I am open to friendship, and I now attract the most wonderful new friends to me.
My circle of friendship continues to grow beyond what I ever expected
Blessings to all!!
