I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Random Thoughts

Do you ever get that feeling that if you slow down and try to relax for too long that some sort of sickness will creep in, just when you let your guard down? That has happened to me twice in the past 2 weeks. The first time happened the day my parents went home...
