My Life & Time Pt. 2



“In the midst of despair, there’s humour; laugh in the face of adversity and dance to the tunes of life.”
~ Etta D.

July 26th 2010 We shared a great loss. A loss that brought us closer together, and one that will forever stay in our hearts.
January 1st 2011 Warning! Warning! Rough seas ahead! I fought against the current, trying to keep the family unit a float as Puberty began to take its toll. *Sigh! And I thanked God for April 5th, because I then realised my soul had not betrayed me, but rather gave me what I would needed for my future battles. A pillar of strength, a shield, and the proverbial shoulder to cry on.
March 28th 2012 we make wonderful plans for the future, plans that would soon be squashed by laws of the land. Laws rocked us to the very core, and once again proved how fragile love is, as we went into full flight or fight mood to battle against the laws of the land.
March 28th 2013 Some battles are best left to be fought another day.  And so we planned our escape, I would be for the second time in my life, leaving my home this time venturing further than I ever had before. Yes…..there were bouts of uncertainty, nightmares of anxiety, and questions about  my sanity. But once the decision was made everything fell into place to make the move happen.
April 1st 2014 a new life begins, and I fell in love with the world again; this new world a stomping ground for Belgian sweets, Escargot,  Baguettes and Frangipane; a stepping stone before the final move.
August 16th 2014 the last leg of  my journey.  Exhausted, with a hint of exhilaration, we begin to rebuild our lives as Alba greeted us with open arms; and be began to explore our this new land we decided to call home……Castles,myths, legends and folklore abound here, great inspiration for my writing and for adventurous young minds.
April 3rd  2015  *Sigh! Falling into despair as another hurdle is set before us. I remind myself that disappointments are sent to prepare us for something greater than what we wish for ourselves; that God in his infinite power rarely, if ever, make mistakes. So I press on with the plan, living each day as it comes moving towards the common goal of the family unit……
 To be continued………..
