These are the days you will remember


One thing I have learned from being sober is not to have regret. No longer will I live in the past feeling bad or unworthy for things that have been done or said. I want to be able to stand up tall feel proud of myself and the choices I am making. Life does not always cooperate so we have to make the best of our situations. I realize now if you make a mistake move on and consider it a lesson learned don’t live in regret and let these moments pass you by.


I have lump in my throat and such strong emotions that at times it makes it hard to work or really even think. I believe that the hardest thing about watching a love one die is having no control.I have learned a great deal about my sister and our relationship we have learned to respect and value each others opinions and choices. I do not want depression to take my time from me. These are the days you remember having both of my daughters home, sitting on my deck in the evening and of course walking my babies.



At Johan’s persistence I finished my garden table and it turen out fabulous if I do say so myself. I planted 4 different kinds of herbs in the basket they all smell wonderful so when I bring them indoors for the winter they will be perfect for my kitchen window. I painted and waxed, Remi stenciled and waxed and Johan supervised.

From our home to yours,
