I started to write about six years ago. I was at a crossroads in my life and I, quite frankly, was not sure what choice I was going to make. Having a few months of recovery under my belt, I understood that the prognosis for this disease was grim. I want to take some time to write to my children and tell them who I am, how I love them, and about the life I have tried to live." So I began to write...
I still cannot explain what happened next. Something happened every time I sat down to write. It was magical and otherworldly the way my fingers would start typing; telling me stories about times and places that I had forgotten and how I actually felt about some things. When I wrote I was safe and strong and smart and insightful and connected to the world around me. From that moment to this one, I have learned that there is so much power in each of our stories. Just. Tell. The. Story
