I am happy to be at home with no where to go and to spend time reflecting on how far my life has come from the sadness and darkness it was less than a decade ago. Sex, drugs, alcohol and severe domestic violence threatened to take my life on multiple occasions. I lived confused and depressed - nothing ever went right and one night things got much worst... "My moment of realization came the night I screamed out to God to save my life as my ex-husband stood on my back while I lay face-down in a lily pond he had thrown me in to.
