My name is Tiffany. I’m a 43 year old mother to four children with one twelve year old left at home and a Grandma to a beautiful ten month old baby boy. But fortunately for me, all my children live within an hour of my home, so this “helicopter” mom feels much more relaxed and secure.
I’ve been married to my true heart and soul mate for 9 years. He helped me overcome my addiction since he, himself had battled the same demons for years and spent over seventeen years incarcerated in both State and Federal penitentiaries.
We live a small town north of Ft Worth, Texas with our three beautiful Siamese “rescue” cats and one happy Golden Retriever.
I enjoy trying new healthy recipes, family gatherings, museums and wine tasting. I’ve recently started exercising at home due my age and thyroid issues. After all, who enjoys taking a handful of prescription pills daily? A routine of exercise and healthy eating can help lower the risk of heart disease, high cholesterol and blood pressure.
My hobbies include writing short stories and poetry. This was therapy for me. I had a knack for composing words on paper that I could not speak out loud. My voice was non-existent, I felt. I have not attempted to write anything since 2008. And it seems to me that since my life is almost perfect, I find it more and more difficult to write.
Tragedy was easy. Affliction was easy. Remorse was uncomplicated. It was something I endured every single day. But contentment, true love, or pride had become challenging to put into words. So writing became obsolete, until today.
As I embark on experiences of my past and how I overcame my life through this blog, I hope you find your self love and healing as I have now, today. There is light at the end of the tunnel. You just need to turn your flashlight on!
