New Year

It's 2017! A year I kind of never thought I'd see.

Elise is 3.5 years old and at an age where she is finally making real, lasting memories. Since before she was born I think about how long I'd have to make it for her to have memories of me. Morbid? Yes, but true.

Fall 2016

 It's been 3.5 years since my mastectomy/ I'm rounding the bend to it being  years since I was diagnosed. And I'm finally sliding down the steeper part of this survival curve.

TNBC Study Results

Since I never really expected to live this long I've been doing a lot of soul searching recently about what I really want from life. Like what do I really want from my career? If I can have more kids do I really want them? What about adoption? What kind of house should we buy? I guess kind of normal 30-something questions about life.

I did make a decision about one thing! After growing my hair out for 3 years I decided to stop and leave it at collarbone length. I realized it was one of my favorite lengths (and I've not had them all) and it's easy to maintain, so I decided to stop there.

Christmas 2016
It's 2017. Prayers for another healthy year are always appreciated.

  4. I am Vera Jones, and I am base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids. I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, I was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster
    called Dr Jack, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,how he cured them of HIV/AIDS and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Sonia, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 7
    days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Jack's e-mail address. After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 72 hours, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are
    even happier than before Dr Jack, He is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try Dr Jack anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. contact the great Doctor through this mail: Morinjack67@gmail.com you can also follow him on instagram:Jacksolutiontemple and on whatsapp:+2348130935053

  7. Some of the people that knew me and my husband before, and those of you who have been at my home you know very well that I had everything a lady wishes for in life. Life was so good but it is hard to explain how things changed for the worse so quickly. I first heard rumors that my man is seeing another woman. In a short time, I found out that it was true. When I confronted him, he instead chose the other woman over me and in fact, he later moved out and left the kids with me to suffer. I must admit life became so hard that I visited priests & healers for help. My life was in a mess that I couldn't concentrate at work. Soon I lost my job and in no time I became so broke. I had no source of income and he refused to support me, not even taking my calls. My friend so what I was going through and she took me to Dr.Mama Nana +27672073600 who had also helped her in a similar situation. She is specialized in solving marriage and relationship issues, cleansing from bad luck, women who cannot get pregnant and many others, but as for me, I didn't care about anything else she does. All I wanted was only to bring back my fiance and my happiness. That’s what mattered to me at that particular time. So I decided to give it a try. But hey this lady is amazing. She performed special prayers for me and cleansed me from bad luck. Friends am telling you the truth, in the second week after the prayers, my fiance came back home asking for forgiveness. Oh GOD, I could not believe it. He asked for forgiveness and he said that he wanted to come back home and I thought it was a joke. Our wedding was last year in May. Now, I am married, happy and so excited. I thank you, my friends, for standing with me in my hardships and during my wedding preparations. God bless you all. Many people are asking me for Mama Nana’s number. I am giving it out here in case you are having any problems in your life or marriage or if your man is cheating or if he left you. Give it a try. Here is her contact: Dr.Mama Nana +27672073600. You can even Whatsapp her.
