coming back!

So it’s almost time. We are closing in on the end of 2010. And boy do I want to say goodbye. I need to start new and see if 2011 can bring me the joy and happiness that was so lacking this year. There have been good moments, sweet moments that got me through but it was hard and I’m ready to move on. First there are a couple more moments to make? Some thanksgiving turkey and family gathered round. Then so many Christmas events to enjoy. Some special time with my girl and sharing a little love with my Kilee and Austen. I can start to appreciate what this year has taught me and given me and the only thing I can hope is that I take these lessons learned and bring them with me into this New Year. A new year where I have my health. That I have truly learned from my past. I want to grow and learn even more this year
Because what I’ve learned most is that if I have this I’m going to end up all right.

I'm finally starting to get back into taking pictures and enjoying things again. Hopefully that means I will post more and have more of Isabella and my life to share soon. It all kind of disappeared for awhile after the stroke but I'm slowly getting there.


  1. I stumbled upon your blog and I have to say I was deeply moved by your story:)
    I pray that you & your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving:)

  2. Hi Karissa - My name is Hollie & I'm your newest follower. I just came across your blog because I'm up late, can't sleep & scouring the internet & I'm so glad that I did. I'm the mom of a 2 year old, and also, my mother had a stroke a few years ago, so your story touched me. I'm looking forward to hearing more about you & your recovery. I hope you & your family have a wonderful holiday.
