My Life Story

I've been wanting to working on how involved I am in blogging.
I love to blog, but some times I fall short because I'm clueless as what to blog about now.
So, starting today, September first I'm joining this challenge to blog everyday this month!
I'm going to aim to go with some of her prompts,
but also do a few of my own because there are things I want to write about.
This is a good challenge for me because
it gets me out of my own head and just gets me writing.
I love to write and some times I just need to put words here without pondering what to write!

The first prompt is to tell my life story in 300 words or less!

I'm the oldest of two girls. My sister is 2 years younger than me. 
My parents divorced when I was 2 years old and both have been remarried. 
I have 2 half brothers.
One is just hitting college age 
and the other is younger than my son, older than my daughter. 
When I was around the age of six my mom remarried, but the guy was abusive, 
so thankfully we were all able to get away from that. 
After that it was just my mom, sister and I for a while until I was in about 5th grade. 
Then, my mom met that man she is now married to. 
That's when life really changed for the better, in lots of ways. 

I struggled a lot with depression starting in 6th grade 
and it hits me every once in a while. 
I didn't always handle it well because I wasn't sure how. 
I cried a lot, hurt myself and hurt lots of people in the process. 
This isn't something that really changed when my life changed, but I think it would have been worse if life stayed the same. 

Growing up I really was in search of finding love. 
I tried to find it in relationships, but that failed miserably. 
I was in a handful of bad relationships that left me feel defeated and wounded. 
They really put me in a dark whole of depression. 
God, saved me from that when I turned to Him my senior year of high school. 
Without Him there is so much I wouldn't have been able to make it through.

He also lead me to my husband. 
I wouldn't have given him a chance if it weren't for God because I was just too scared and too hurt. Thankfully God took care of that. 
Now, we have each other, two toddlers and another baby on the way!

There's much more to my life than this. It's always changing and I'm always growing.
Not sure if its 300 words or less because I don't have a word count, but we'll say its close!
