come into my closet, come under my bed, where you'll find me hiding,
the fear in my head.

abuse in the past, now, where do i start, making my future,
healing my heart.

crushed, and broken, falling fast-
needing comfort, make it last.

Things are going pretty well, however I have had to take a bit of a break from the blog world. Not that I want to be MIA, but life took over.

I am pretty behind in school, and taking care of family for a bit. I will be back....thanks for your patience. I hope you are all well.

I am sorry to not be checking in with you. You have each influenced my life, and I care deeply to know how you are. I just have to catch up. And then my husband is taking me on a vacation for next week. I will be back as soon as I can. Hugs. Prayers that you are each doing well, and knowing that Mile here cares about you.

In my thoughts, and prayers, you are. Thanks for the love and support. Be back in a bit. ♥

Hey girl, what are you going to school for, you know what do you want to be when you grow Up?
I am so impressed!

who I was, who I am, who I plan to be...

i am trying to heal from severe childhood sexual, emotional,
physical, and mental abuse; and abandonment.

this is my story.

i have good and bad days, and some days the odds seem insurmountable.
i cling to the hope that healing will come to mend the shatter pieces of my heart, mind and body.

mile 191, well, you will understand as you read along.
mile 191, portions of my past have a link on the top right.
mile 191, bottoms up. hears to you and to me.

please, if you know me, just let me know you found me. i need honesty. (and please do not use personal names)
if you want to follow my story, please try to heal with me.
if you want to share with me, please do.
i will post bits of my pain as i can, and leave it here.
i once thought that i would publish...i haven't had the courage.

this is my closet, you are welcome to come in.
just know this is my refuge, healing takes place here,
maybe it will be a refuge to you too.
