Survivor Bracelet

Goodness! I'd love to own this bracelet. I just think it's so beautiful! With a strong meaning behind it. As a Domestic Violence survivor, I always want to pay it forward. I want to help others that are in the same position as I once was. I know how difficult it can be.

I would never change what I went through. It shaped me. Made me the woman I am today. Also, I got 4 beautiful children. All that suffering, it was worth it, to have my babies. I just wish I could have protected them from the violence more.

But we're moving on. More than a year later, we're all stronger. And better off. We'll never forget our struggles. But it's nice to live in a safe home. We'll never forget our past. But we are always looking toward a better tomorrow. :)

i stumbled across your blog from the SMS May Giveaway Day list. I just wanted to tell you how amazing you are. You are so strong, & I admire what you have done for yourself and your children. My best friend was murdered by her boyfriend in 2007, and since then, her friends, family & I have started a non-profit organization to spread awareness about domestic violence & raise money for victims like yourself. I have never been in your sitution, and I can't imagine how hard it must have been for you to leave. BUT just in case no one has told you today, you did the right thing. You are so brave and inspiring, and your children are SOOO lucky to have you for a mother.
