The journey began. Seven years ago today the children and I left South Carolina to head towards New York to start our new life. It took us three days because I stopped to see a friend. I still remember the fear I felt as we drove down the highway. I was scared that he would catch up to us and run us off the road!! So much has changed in seven years and I am so glad that we took that risk. Two weeks before we left I remember going into the office of the shelter we were at. I couldn't decided if we were staying in South Carolina or moving to New York. The shelter would pay for bus tickets to NY but wouldn't help me get there in my van. They also would help us get into a place if we could afford it. I told the kids if they helped us get into a place then we would stay. I walked in the office and was told we they would help us and I said something like no thank you we are going to NY. The day we left we packed what we could in the van and on top of it (brought a cloth canvas thing for the top of it) and went to my friends to get the cats (only could catch two of the three) and off we went. I do not regret the trip and am so glad we left and started a new life.
Sorry I have been MIA around here. I have been dealing with a lot of memories popping up and I am not liking it. I will try to catch up on the board this week. (((HUGS)))
