Blogging Again!

Sunday, July 17, 2011

I am back!!! 😉  After a couple of years of much needed respite and taking time to not only heal myself but also my girls I am going to start blogging again!

For those of you who read my blog posts before be forewarned I will mostly NOT be advocating for rural Alaska nor my native people. Neither will I be going after politicians nor even speaking about politics as I did before.  Nope I have some much…MUCH more important things to discuss nowadays.

What are this important things you wonder?  My girls.  Myself and the battles that we have fought, continue to fight and will fight in the future.  You see since Segundo died so many things have happened.  From finding out that Cecelia is developmentally disabled to facing and conquering domestic violence.  From having our home taken away from us and jumping into an abusive relationship while still in the fog of grief.  From escaping DV to life in a shelter to spreading our wings and moving onward and upward.

Life has been anything but easy, it’s a struggle each and everyday.  But it’s a struggle that I battle with my head held high, ducking obstacles, swerving around bumps in the road and always remembering that I did not die and that my girls need me.  For I am the only mom that they have.  Now not only am I “mom” but also I am “dad” hopefully providing for both roles now that Segundo is gone.

We were knocked to our knees the day that Segundo died and after nearly two years of crawling, toddling, walking  we are now running!

So join me here.  I hope… no need to write this all down!  I might not write everyday but I will write as much as possible. So read my story, read my poetry, find help and inspiration in the battles that I have fought and am still fighting.  For if I can do this…..SO TOO CAN YOU!

    Ann – It is so good to see you again. It seems like such a short time ago when you and Segundo were selflessly assisting with the deliveries of food in rural Alaska. I am filled with sorrow to hear about your struggles, yet filled with confidence and hope that your future will be bright.

      Quyana Cakneq Ella!! It’s good to be back. You are right it does seem like it was only a short time ago that Gundo and I were assisting rural Alaska. Other times it seems like it has been longer than two years ago. Quyana for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you here in the future 😉
