Where are you headed?

At the top of the blog is a link called “the Journey.”

That belongs to you.

So many people have hidden storehouses of pain, disappointment, and utter despair.

Life is a journey and telling others your story brings a freedom to move on to the next stage, whatever that might be.

So where are you headed?

Feel free to share your story.

The Journey.

We are in it together, you and I.

  1. I am so loving this blog. I do not love it because I want to feel you bled but because I have been in the darkness also and found light. Where am I headed? I am headed to the top of the mountain. I now have the tools to be the person I was born to be. It has been a very hard journey but God has always been there with me. His patience with me amazes me and I beat the odds. Rising up from the ashes of Domestic Violence Survivor to Victory over my scars. It has been a hard road, 21 years in the marriage, 13 years healing. Some would say, that’s 34 years, what have you accomplished? Peace for my children, peace for myself, peace in my new family and most of all peace in my spiritual life. Never give up, pray, share, search for others in pain and offer help. We are the broken but God loves and ministers to us.

  2. I had some reservations about writing this. I am a deaf/blind and didn’t feel anyone wanted to hear about it. I realize from reading this blog that everyone has hurdles to overcome. Some more violent than others but hurdles just the same. The emotional trauma and mental drainage is the same. I have lived with Usher Syndrome for the past 31 years. A rare bird. It is a combination of vision loss due to Retinitis Pigmentosa and in my case, a profound hearing loss. That makes me an even rarer bird. Since it is progressive, what works one day, eventually won’t. Most people have no clue. Rose Bukater in Titanic said she felt she was in a crowded room, screaming at the top of her lungs and no one looks up. I know how she feels. The world is a fast merry go round and won’t slow down long enough to let you get on. You wonder how in the world do you manage to live and do everyday tasks and try to be as normal as possible. You want to just be normal but you know that is not possible. Everyday tasks have to be done differently. My computer is set differently to allow me to communicate and use the internet. My husband and I are starting to use tactile sign language to communicate with each other. I was told the other day by a deaf/blind specialist that my world is in my hands and I believe that but deep down inside you just want to be normal. When I was first diagnosed with this, I wondered how in the world would I ever live with this. I am finding the key word is baby steps. A little at a time you adjust and you look around one day and realize you are doing it. By golly I am doing it now and will continue to do it. Helen Keller once said, Everything has its wonders,even darkness and silence, and I learn whatever state I may be in, therein to be content. By golly I am doing it.
