I’m 43 years old.  I’ve been married three times, birthed 4 children, buried 2 of my children.  I have 3 grandchildren and a fourth on the way.  Life’s definitely thrown me some curve balls, but I’ve also been blessed in many ways.  I have days that I feel depressed.  Days I feel angry.  Days I feel defeated… But I always push through.. I always strive to be happy Angela.  After I buried my 17 year old son 2 years ago, I told myself that there HAS to be more to life than just getting through the days.  I’ve read many near death experience books, daily affirmations, self improvement books and  A LOT of spirituality books. I want to grab onto as much knowledge as I can.  I want to learn about different religions.. I want to experience new adventures.. I want to feel a connection with as many people as possible!  So I’ve been reading and I’ve gone on some adventures (diamond mining and zip lining in Arkansas, snow skiing in New Mexico, riding the subway in New York, paddle boarding in the Caribbean and many others)… All in 2 years.. I smile and say “hi” to strangers.. I give money to people that need it.. I put real effort in listening to others.. I want to get to know people and what they think this life is all about!!  So, I started the book club (along with a couple of my friends).  And that is what lead me to setting up this site and trying this blogging thing.  I can reach so many more people this way (at least that is the idea)!  And others can reach out to me!  So please take the time to read my blogs.. I welcome comments.  Who knows… maybe there’s someone out there that needs to read what is written on here to help them through their lives.  Maybe your comments will provide me with insight that I need..
