An unforeseen jouney and my VEGAN daughter!

Part one: I know I have been missing from blogland for quite sometime and I hope that I still have some blog buddies out there. I have missed you all. I have been quietly checking on most of you and making sure you are OK. I am sorry I have been missing but life can get in the way and to put it lightly my past life has gotten in the way. It's my time to seek help, time to heal, time to grow, and time to learn how to deal with what life throws my way. I am told I will be OK, that I will heal, and that I will learn to be happy and enjoy.

I have been given these words of encouragement along with many more. Sometimes daily by someone very close to me who is trying so hard to help me on my journey. Thank you! Maybe if you are struggling you can put your name in and read it as though it is for you. Maybe it can help you too.

Think that it's fun, Sheree', that you're guided, and that all is well;
that there's time, that life is easy, and that the best has yet to come.

Think that the reasons that elude you will one day catch up, that the lessons that have stumped you will one day bring joy, and that the sorrows that have crippled you will soon give you wings.

Think that you're important, that you cannot fail, and that happiness always returns.

And think that you're beautiful, Sheree'.

If you are inclined to hang in there the best is yet to come, Part two:

Enough about my unforeseen journey and let me lead you to some well written words of my daughter.

Now as any proud mama would be I need to brag about my daughter, Brandie. Life has thrown her a few curve balls this past year and she still had the strength to move into her new conviction and go vegan as of the first of this year. She is amazing and is learning and growing by leaps and bounds. She is an amazing cook, loves experimenting, and is being a wonderful example to her wonderful son, my amazing, smart, funny, and the cutest little grandson in the world. I don't have the words to explain her journey so PLEASE check out her newest post. I know that comments and support are what we all need as new vegans and old vegans because life can get in the way. I hope you will all hop on over to Brandie's blog and see a very inspiring post. Sorry folks, Brandie had some trouble on her blog with rude people so she blocked her blog, but she said if you email her at Horse dot lover at yahoo dot com and tell her you came from my blog she will invite you. I hope this doesn't discourage any of you visiting..

How could I not be proud?

I am very sorry you are going through such a rough time! I hope everything will be okay eventually.

P.S. I wanted to click through to Brandi's blog but it looks like an invite only blog.
