Cherishing The Time I Have with Loved Ones!

This is my husband, Ramone, in my book.  He is a very loving man who took my daughters as his own at such a young age.  I was lucky to finally find a relationship without abuse.  God helped me find my perfect match and I hope that all the survivors of abuse is as lucky as me.  I am very thankful today that I went through all my struggles to be able to really appreciate the husband I have today.
My favorite photo of my dad and me at my wedding before he gave me to my second husband.  It was a very special moment for me. My daughters were my flower girls now ages 16 & 14.  The years go by fast. 

My father's health is now on the last stages of kidney cancer.  It really makes you reflect on life. 

My parents had a lot of past abuser problems of their own when they had four daughters that is why I was able to forgive them for the severe parental neglect when I was a child. 

I think it made it easier to cope after my parents stopped denying what happened and started to be part of my healing process by sharing their story with me but also to validate my feelings as well.  I am so happy we all have made our peace.

Think about your family and your loved ones.  Do you have some unresolved issues you would like to talk about and resolve.  It may not be abuse related. 

It could be a fight you had and no one wants to be the first to say sorry or admit they were wrong.  Now is the time to make amends.
