It’s been seven years since I started writing and speaking about domestic violence.
I have written for many organizations and I have spoken in front of large groups of people. For years my own children didn’t know half of the things that I had accomplished or was involved in.
In 2014, I was appointed to the Restraining Order Task Force for the General Assembly and served for six months. It was quite an experience and one that made me come to realize just how difficult it is to change a law in this country.
Eventually, my children caught wind of some of the things that I had been doing.
I remember them telling me, “Mom, no one cares what you have to say.”
Well, what I have to say is this…
When I began blogging, I had it in my heart that I wanted to write. I wanted to share both my humor and my perspective with the world.
Thank you, to all of you that read my blog, message me and share my stories with your friends and family.
I love to hear that I make you laugh.
I love to know that contrary to popular belief in my house, someone does care about what I have to say.
If you’re reading this post right now, know that you are my reason to keep at it…
You have helped me to realize that my voice does matter and that someone does care what I have to say.
