How I feel about Drugs and Alcohol Day 20 of 30 Days of Truth...

Day 20 My view on drugs or alcohol. I have had some very serious up close and personal experiences with both drugs and alcohol. My 1st husband was an alcoholic and it led to his death by suicide. His suicide led to both of our children becoming addicted to some very bad drugs. There was a time in my life when I was looking in mall bathrooms and banging on the doors of drug dealers looking for my son. There were times I prayed for him to be arrested. I worked closely with the Strike Force to catch him in the act, when it finally happened it was so heartbreaking. He felt betrayed, I felt relieved. He was sentenced to Drug Court and it saved his life. When my daughter started her adventure with drugs she knew enough from seeing what her brother had been through that she needed help. I am so thankful she came to me and asked me to get her help. Today both of my kids are amazing, they are amazing parents, amazing workers and most important amazing members of society.

Until later,
Hugs,
Shelly

30 days continuing...

Day 14- A hero that let me down. I have seriously pondered this and I don't have a hero that has let me down. Sorry.

Day 15- Someone or something I can't live without- everyone in my family. I can't live without my hubster, my kids, my grandies, my brothers and thier families or my parents. Don't ask me to, cuz I just can't it aint happening.

Day 16- Someone or something I can live without- Sugar, I quit eating candy, cake, cookies and Icecream about a month ago. I thought I wouldn't be able to do it but it has been really easy and I have lost 15 lbs. since I quit. I am really kind amazed at how easy this has been.

Day 17- Book that has made an impact in my life Book of Mormon for obvious reasons.

Day 18- Views on Gay Marriage- I am one of those people that really feels like what people do behind thier own doors is none of my business. I think people are born gay and should have that right but I don't want to see anyone gay or straight showing to much affection in public.

Day 19- What are my feelings on religion or politics. I think everyone has a right to believe anything they want to. I believe most religions are good
and I would never try force anyone to believe the way I do. With politics I work very close to it and alot times I just get mad! haha!

Until later,

I am so in a funk...

So obviously you can tell by the lack of me posing at all lately I am in an end of summer funk! Don't get me wrong, I love the Fall Season but I feel like I was a little bit jipped by the short length of Summer this year. Well to myself I say "Self Buck-up, it is what it is so get with it!" First of all we have the matter of the 30 Days of Truth so I am going to finish that, I may do 3 days in one post or I may not do any days in a post but I am going to get it done. So with that being said...I will begin with Day 11- Something I am complimented on- I thing with this one I will go with that I am a really positive person and almost always I am happy-go-lucky, so I am comfortable to be around.
Day 12 - Something I am never complimented on - My math skills, I totally suck at math! Seriously, I am embarrassed to say I scored a 9 on my SAT's.
Day 13- Letter to a band or artist who helped me through a very tough time in my life- Dear Shania, You have no idea how much you helped my through a very difficult time in my life, your music enspired me to move forward after my divorce. Some of the words to your songs were exactly what I was going through at that time. Other songs were so upbeat that I wanted to move forward so I could feel positive again and know that I was making the right choices. It has been 13 years ago that I went through this and I have to thank you because I am now happier than I ever thought possible.
