I was lost and broken
Today I am in able to give back to the place that turned my life around. I am grateful to be in a position to see where I was and where I am today, and I am completely amazed. Five years ago, I entered Grace House broken and completely lost—I had no idea just how bad. Although I was broken, there was room for hope to come in through the cracks. I am thankful to have had hope. Although I had a lovely home and a wonderful daughter, I did not realize how lost I was. I was just an empty shell of a person just going through the motions of everyday life. One day, it was all taken away: my job, my home, and my daughter.
I was told I needed to find help and given a list with Grace House’s name on it. When I entered into the house, I was lost and broken. I am forever grateful for the counselors and staff who have seen through all my bull and showed me a new way of living. Today, I am able to be a part of that place that gave me hope back. Today I have a loving relationship with my nine year old daughter. I am able to have loving and healthy relationships. Today I am in a place that keeps me grounded. I am get to be there for the broken, lost soul that comes through the doors and let them know there is hope in the cracks. Thank you to everyone who has challenged me to be the best me I could ever be.
