Here Goes Nothing

Well, it’s been quite some time since I built a website of my own. About five years in fact. Sheesh! That makes me feel old.

First post…? Well, let me tell you a little bit about what I’m doing. I’m beginning again. Three and a half years ago, I created with the help of some amazing individuals and while I’ll be keeping the site up and running for anyone who happens to come across it, will be my new blogging home.

So, here goes nothing. Attempt to build in progress. Please be patient with me as this site is currently under construction.

Until next time, be brave.

Love, A

  1. First I just want to say you’re an amazing writer! Second Thank you! I am going through probably the hardest time I’ve ever had in my life right now and this was exactly what I needed to hear. I’ll probably read this over and over… Maybe even every morning. Thank you!

I am happy that you have someone in your life who loves you and who loves Austyn. We live but one life on this earth and it we must live it with love and kindness. For in the end, it matters not what others think – what matters is that we h

    With my love and admiration to you always.

    1. Oh, Therese… thank you so much, sister. You are one amazing lady and I am so thankful for you and for the life that you and your wonderful Keith lived together. Even though we have never met, I have drawn much strength from your words and your positive outlook. I know we both know that not all days are filled with light, but that we can choose to look for it anyway. Praying for you always and sending my love to you!

  3. Wow. This is exactly what I needed. My husband (28) also died from cancer 1 year ago January 5th. This article was exactly what I needed today. Thank you so much.

    1. Mindy! I am so sorry about your husband. Mine was 27 and was one year ago January 7th. I wonder if our guys know each other now? ;] Thank you for your encouraging words and for your love and support. Sending my love your way.
