Blogger, Brand Ambassador, CEO, Book reading, Outlander obsessed OCD, eclectic woman blending multiple cultures into one life. That one sentence sums me up nicely. However I am also a divorced mother of four! Those are words that I never thought I would say until a short time ago but there it is. As a catholic woman I never wanted or dreamed that would be my future. It wasn’t from lack of trying on my part and I move forward knowing I did everything I could only to fail in the end.
That disastrous marriage brought me my most perfect gifts so it couldn’t have been all bad. My children (twins which I adopted at birth and 2 stepchildren who I later adopted) that I adore and make my life worth while. I live in a small Georgia town that you most likely have never heard of and the sidewalk rolls up at 6 pm. I LOVE it! My house is more than full as my mother and uncle both live with us to make caring for them easier. I call them the senior citizens and you will find many stories about Life at Shady Pines around here.
My life is full, loud, and crazy at the best of times but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The last few years have been filled with struggles from a marriage falling apart, dealing with depression to learning to accept my son’s new normal. From that I have learned to take each and everyday as the gift that I know it is. I am still a work in progress and that is okay. I live by the quote above (author unknown) that I read and realized just how true it is. My life is as far from perfect as it can be but it happens to be the most beautiful life I can imagine.
