I am currently a student at SNHU studying Marketing with a focus on Social Media. I work full-time and have been encouraged to create a blog to share my story, but never had the nerve to “just do it”! My story? Don’t we all have one? I will get to that soon enough! 🙂
My current course, Com 310 – Social Media is forcing me to take the bull by the horns. I hope you enjoy this ride with me as I share my story and learn more about this form of social! This ride may be a little bumpy and I may fall off the bull, but if you bear with me, I will jump right back on and continue to share this journey of mine.
I am married. We have a beautiful 18-year-old who finished high school in 3 years and is about to start her second year of college. She wants to be a psychiatrist. Go figure! My journey is also her journey. I have no doubt that what we have experienced is what has encouraged her to have the desire to go out and help others.
When we get married, traditional vows state “for better or for worse…in sickness and in health”. We go through marriage dealing with the better and the worse and often times don’t expect the sickness to be part of the equation. Especially a disabling sickness when one is still fairly young.
My husband is only 3 years older than me. I met him in my first year of college (a few decades ago). We actually dated for four years before marrying. There have been good times and bad as with most marriages and because of faith and sincere love we endured it all. Then the unexpected happened. A little over 7 years ago, my husband at 47 suffered a massive stroke. My life, my daughter’s life, our lives turned upside down.
Over the past 7 years I have learned so much about faith, life, about me and my destiny and so much more. I’m here to share with hopes that I can help someone as well as to receive help from others. I accept the fact that it is what it is. The struggle however is not one I would wish on anyone, yet its not as detrimental as it may seem.
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to your feedback!
