TWO YEARS LATER:
Wow! What a difference in my life! Remaining true to the promises made to myself has been difficult, it has challenged me, it has also helped me to rise above the hardest of the pressures I had weighing on my life... I've been able to enjoy again the feeling of giving my children a hug, of having them back in my presence. I feel more liberated, I feel more alive! I have more understanding of the reasons for desiring to continue to live, for getting up in the morning,
The craziest thing about it is that it has also helped in so many other areas of my life... Things like; I'm actually finding it easier to obtain & hold down a job, profession, & career, as well as, I'm receiving compliments, kudos and acknowledgements at church, work, from family members & friends both at home & about, and even occasionally getting comments about different things from complete strangers!
