The Beauty of Hell...

Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - also known as my personal life motto!

All Human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Who I am...

I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a survivor.
My family has made me who I am...my past family with past hurts...my current family with current joy.
Family is something you are born into and cannot choose,
family is also what you choose it to be once you are old enough to start anew...

Thank you Thank you Thank you!

Debbie Johansson and Fairview have kindly nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award!

 In addition, The View from Fairview has awarded me The Lovely Blog Award for my blog design!  Thank you so much!  And another Leibster...I'm still not at 200 readers, I've got a LONG way to go! ;)

I'm a little shocked, but never speechless! :)  As I understand it this award requires the recipient to give out some random personal facts, so here are a few:

1. I worked as a Maple Leaf Farms eviscerator in college.
2. I worked overnights at a trucker Shell Station in college.
3. I did a lot of meth in college.
4. I did not graduate from college. (The first time at least! I recently went back to school and was able to get my degree!)
5. I graduated Summa Cum Laude

Now is the most difficult part...To Pay it Forward and Pass this along.  I'm just going to list some of the great blogs that I enjoy reading and hopefully, you will enjoy getting to know them too!

Christine Rains - I awarded her the finalist status on the First Campaigner Challenge, her writing is great so go check it out!

Ed Pilolla - Beautiful words! Oh you've got to read his series on the seasons...mesmerizing.

Sarah Pearson at Empty White Pages - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog!

Christine Tyler at The Writer Coaster - she uses words that make my brain work...and I like it!

Annalise Green - I often laugh out loud...her blog makes me feel like she's sitting at the kitchen table and we are LOAO together over coffee! :)


  1. Heather,
    I didn't really see anything on your site that warranted the warning. I thought maybe it was in the older posts that I didn't read? Anyway, I appreciated the warning, but it may turn off a few potential visitors? Just my humble opinion

  2. Congrats on the awards and on graduating summa cum laude the second time around. :-D

  3. You really deserve the awards, so I thought I'd give you one as well :) (Actually, I didn't see you already got it.) Anyway, here's another nomination for the versatile blog award!
