An Introduction to my world

My name is Shannon, I am 35 years old, married and a mother of four. I've had a lot different experiences in life, a lot of hard lessons and a lot of hard times.

Sometimes feeling very alone like there was no one out there to listen to me, no one that could understand or even care how I was feeling. I am an at home mother and have been for the last four years almost. I am a very outgoing person and can talk a lot, so for me to be at home with nothing but children to talk to over the last four years I usually drive people crazy who call to talk for a minute, trying to get a word in edgewise and knowing that when they call I'm going to talk their ear off.

I have always had this passion inside me for writing, always felt like I had a lot to say, always felt like I had a lot to give to others through my life and my heart. I have also always felt like there wasn't anywhere or anyone that I could just tell everything to or feel completely safe with. The reason for that is I have felt the feeling of abandonment many many times in my life so I have a very difficult time letting myself get to close to anyone. Trust is a big issue for me because of the hurt that has been caused by people in my life that should only have protected me.

Writing is my out, it is a way that I feel like I can express myself, say what I need to say and feel safe doing it. That is the point of my blog, as a mother .. we share a lot of trials and tribulations, a lot of times feeling very alone.

I will share my stories, I will share my trials, tribulations and frustrations. I hope that you enjoy reading, feel free to comment and give me feedback.
