Back from Hiatus

Let me start off by apologizing for my extended hiatus from this site.  I have to say, I did NOT expect school to take up so much of my time!!!  At one point, this blog started off to be somewhat of a hobby of mine.  A source for me to vent all of my single parenting frustrations with the world; to share some new recipes I've created (or doctored up); and to share my life journey with weight loss, and healthy eating.  But since starting Nursing School in January 2014, I have been busy to the MAX!!!!  No time for blogging or recipe creating.  No time for weight loss or exercising.  I mean, if I'm being completely honest here, I barely have enough time for my kid these days!!  =( I am 100% overwhelmed and frustrated about 98% of the time... This is, BY FAR, the HARDEST thing I have ever encountered in my LIFE!!!!  There is simply no way to describe the agony of which Nursing School brings.  If you have not gone through the journey yourself, there is nothing I could say that would do it justice.  But, the good news is:  I am nearing the end of my third semester, making me 3/4 finished with this part of the journey!!!!  Yay me!!!  I have to tell you, I am a living testimony
to those of you who think that reaching for the stars cannot be achieved as a single mom.  I have journeyed this road completely alone.  Just me and my daughter.  It has been no one but God helping me through this, I know this for sure, because there were many times that I have wanted to give up and walk away.  I am living proof that good things can come from broken vessels.  You can make a comeback and change your future.  Whatever dream you may have in life, do what you have to do to get there.  Do not allow your single parenting woes stop you from achieving the life that you deserve.  YOU CAN DO IT!!!
