I’ve decided that I had disappeared long enough. I titled this post Changes because well….things are so very different in my life. I married Scott MacMeeken on May 18, 2013. He’s my best friend, my heart. He’s changed me for the better….or perhaps brought out what had been buried for years. I’ve left my roots for the first time since I was a child. I live away from my family and friends. But in doing so, I’ve found myself again. No regrets. Scott and I have had a rash of hardships since our marriage. His precious mother passed away just months after I had met and come to love her. She was the kindest, most lovely person. She drew me into her heart right away, and I am her daughter. She did a remarkable job raising her son…and all of her children. I miss her everyday and I know all that knew and loved her do as well.
Financially, we’ve been on a roller coaster. My porphyria has reared its ugly head a couple of times and had me hospitalized. I’m currently waiting to see if my liver is holding up, as I’ve had abnormal test results. In short, it’s been hard. Yet I find myself happier than I’ve ever been in my life. I’m peaceful inside. That’s a new feeling for me. I’m where I belong, with the man I’ll love until I draw my last breath. Through the changes, I’ve found my place at last. Slainte!
