About Me

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is my means of therapy to talk about how I am managing this thing called life.

So much has happened in my life since 2013. On June 22, 2013, I lost my 17 year old son, Chandler. Losing a child is the most devastating thing that can happen to a person. Just trying to live with this grief has proven to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. But, with God, all things are possible. I am living somewhat. Each day that my feet hit the floor, my goal is to run a little harder towards living a little more. Some days are good, some days are bad.

On November 12, 2015, I lost my Mama, who was my rock, to Metastatic Ovarian Cancer. She was diagnosed in August 2015 and died in November 2015. That sent me into a whole different realm of grief. So, now I am grieving two of the most important people in my life.

Moving on to 2016… my marriage ended after being together for 23 years. Statistics say, the odds were not in our favor to stay together after the loss of a child. We became one of the statistics. So, now, we can add grief of a lost relationship to that grief pile.

However, I still get up. And, I have two of the most wonderful daughters that I could not be prouder of. Alyssa is 19 and Sara is 18. And, they make life worth living. They bring me joy.

My goal guys…. my soul goal in this life… is to chase joy until God decides it’s time to take me home to be with my loved ones.

I am learning…. JOY is where it’s at. Being the giver while you are the broken.

Standing on His Promises,

Brandi
