When God Shows Up

Yesterday was a bad day for me. I was dealing with a horrible hormonal headache from annolvuatory bleeding. I was feeling so low and hopeless.

My journey begins now …

Well here it is. My first blog. I can’t even believe I’ve actually started a blog when just a year ago I was reaching out to my friend Jolene asking exactly what a blog was! I mean, I’m not COMPLETELY clueless. I knew it was a place where people wrote about certain things and people…
