  1. Hi, I am not sure how you feel about blog awards, but recently my blog Retirement and Beyond was nominated for the Liebster award. Part of the rule is that I nominate 11 up and coming blogs, One of the blogs that I am nominating is your blog. If you are interested in participating in this bloggers award (that is if you have not received the same nomination before),please visit my post on the Liebster Award http://joanfrankham.wordpress.com. Once you accept the nomination please send me the link to your Liebster Award post,I do want to know more about my fellow bloggers whose blog I find interesting and inspirational to other bloggers. Thanks.

    • Thank you so much.

      I’m overwhelmed with all of these wonderful supportive messages and nominations.

      I promise that by this weekend, I will make my award posts. I’m sorry that they have been so delayed.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of your loss, one that is unimaginable. I recognize Brittany’s life, as I lived one that resembled it. I now call that phase of my life being asleep. I am awake now, and I wrote a book with the intent to awaken all women (all people) so that they might live free. I feel that a book that takes someone from asleep to awake did not exist before.

    Today is the first time I searched for blogs on the topic and I am not very techie, so I don’t know if this is the appropriate place to send a message.

    I am on a truly and completely on a mission to awaken everyone and stop all abuse in the world. I chose to stay in a abuse most of my 52 years on the planet and am now free. “Me and My Shadow” move from Fear and Control to Love and Freedom was just published in March and I am trying to get it to anyone with the same mission as me to help me spread the healing. I certainly would be glad to send you a copy of my book or you can go to Amazon.com and see if you are interested.

    My thought is if you and other people in this place of passion to stop domestic violence can read it, and if they agree with my message, help to spread the word by blogging and sharing about the book, we can save more women than if I do this alone. Please share your thoughts-and thank you for listening and for what you are doing to raise awareness and change lives.

    • Congratulations on your book.

      I’ve found that awareness by everyone is the key to getting out of abusive relationships. I was unaware of how prevalent domestic abuse was before I received that phone call.

      It is sad that most of us do not become aware until it affects someone we know, which is one of the reasons to continue to talk about Brittany and her life and how she died.

      It is still a shock to me that she is gone.

      I’d love to read your book and see your journey. Unfortunately, we’re going through something of a financial hardship and we have no discretionary money, so I won’t be able to order it from Amazon. I will keep it in mind for another time, though.

      Good luck to you.


      • Thank you for responding! I am sorry to hear about your most recent troubles. I agree with your words in how blind most people are until it hits close to home. That is all part of what I hope to impact. As I mentioned in my note I would gladly send you a book if reading it is of interest to you. Please let me know where to send it. I think it will speak powerfully to you about our cause! Thank you! Blessings, Diana
