Picking Up the Pieces to 100 Broken Promises Description
I am unapologetically broken; I am tired, but I keep moving. I am hurt, but I keep helping. I am delicate and strong. I am intelligent, but I don't have all of the answers. I am giving to a fault, and I am still learning how to ask for help. I have wronged others and I have been wronged. I have wonderful friends who show up when I need them the most, and I have others who only take; until they took too much. I am still figuring it all out, while loving a homicidal son, missing an estranged daughter, forgiving an abusive mother, remembering my dad - my best friend who was taken too soon - and a loving husband who didn't know what he was getting himself into.
After forty years of disappointment, from people that I love the most, I've learned that the only promises I can depend on come from God. Things aren't perfect, but I'm learning how to heal with a knife still in my back.
"Picking up the Pieces to 100 Broken Promises" is my guide on how to navigate life and heal in conditions that aren't always pleasant. This book consists of a collection of events experienced from my perspective. There are intimate details that may not show myself or others in the best light, but it's my truth and I choose to tell my story, because it's mine to tell.
