Today is a special day...

Today is the day I stood up and said enough for the last time.  Today is the day I made a decision.  Today is the day I spent my last moments in prison.  Today is the day I became strong.  Today is the day I realized that all of you were right.  One year ago today, I made the decision to leave.  I went to Domestic Violence and they told me I could stay in the shelter.  Tomorrow will be my One Year anniversary of freedom.  Freedom from verbal and mental abuse, for myself and my children.  The day I started my Life Over....
