I felt free when I first accepted that I had really left my abuser nearly six years ago. There is nothing like the feeling of freedom after being suppressed for any length of time. I felt this again last week when two years of additional litigation came to an end. I have been quiet and patient, allowing the wheels of justice to turn…slowly.
When I think about what just happened, I must give thanks for all the Angels in my life. I know I didn’t blog or respond a lot during this time, and I truly missed it! I love learning from you all, and sharing experiences.
When the weight was lifted, the first thing I did was to take the AoA kids to the beach! It is about a nine hour drive for us, which is not too difficult with technology to keep them busy. Brother kept us entertained with music using “I❤️radio” and “Spotify”. Times have sure changed!
My ultimate “aha” moment, was when I was visiting with another vacationer at the hotel pool. She shared that her son worked for the hotel chain, and told me how much they paid for their room! I knew then, that one of my children would need to work in the hospitality industry. The Little AoA kids are 12 and 9….quite a wait. But….I have a 28 year old who is currently in a job he doesn’t like…oh the possibilities!
The fog is lifting now…I can’t wait to share more ideas!
