Hello, friend! Welcome to my blog! Come on in to my blog living room, have a seat, relax and let me pour you a cup of heartfelt thoughts from my coffee pot of heartache. My name is Dawna (just say Donna like you’re from Boston and you’ll get it right😊). I am a 54 year old, newly divorced (my husband left after 30 years of marriage!) mother of seven (gasp now), with two beautiful grandchildren and one on the way.
I wholeheartedly love life, my faith, and family life. I am an enthusiastic learner, currently studying Massage Therapy at my local college and thoroughly enjoying every aspect of this soon-to-be career.
I will tell you right up front that I am not a polished writer who passionately loves to write, but I have a LOT to share. If one thinks of a blog as a conversation with the reader, then that is exactly what I intend to do in this blog: have a conversation with you, my readers and confidants.
I want this to be a place where we can share with one another the utterly devestating, painful reality which divorce has wrought in us.
I care greatly for each and every one of you out there who is struggling. My hope is that by sharing with one another in this safe, non-judgmental, loving space, we can obtain a bit of comfort knowing that others share our feelings, which are misunderstood by most.
So come in, read, share. I like to think you are sitting here in my living room on the couch nearby, a box of tissues resting on the table at your side. So put your feet up, grab your coffee and stay a while.
Relax, read, cry.
The sun will be shining one day soon for all of us. In the mean time, let us rest in the knowledge that someone understands us and that God loves us deeply, down to the innermost core of our being.
Lots of love to you, my friend,
