Just a little bit about me…
For many years I have felt the pull to share my story… a story of abandonment, abuse, addiction, and loss. But not to worry, my story does have a happy ending to this point. It is a story of survival… a story of rising above… a story of overcoming.
Until now, I have been afraid to share my story. Afraid of who I might upset. Afraid to be vulnerable. Besides, who would want to hear my story anyway? No one would really care, and who am I to think that any of it is worth even hearing about?
But recently, something inside of me shifted. The pull I have felt for so many years became stronger and I could no longer ignore it. So here I am. I have no idea how this will evolve but I am thoroughly excited for this adventure.
You can call me Aimee. I am a 40-something-year-old mother of two amazing boys – well, I should really call them young men. My oldest son is currently 21, married, and recently made me a grandma. My youngest son will be 17 in just a few days. I have spent the better part of my adult life as a single mother.
I am also a full-time employee at our local hospital and have been for 16 years as of this writing. No I am not a nurse – I AM a nursing school dropout though – if that counts for anything. I couldn’t handle the blood and needles. Y’all nurses have my utmost respect. I work in the Medical Record department of our hospital and I love it.
Above all, I am a child of God. As a Roman Catholic, I have a deep love of our Lord and Savior. It is by His Grace alone, that I am still standing.
I don’t want to get ahead of myself here – but that is the gist of who I am – or who I have been for many years.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope in some small way, my story will inspire you.
You Are Enough.
