I thank God for the support of my friends and family to help me get through it. I’m hoping that all of my fans will be there as I dare to dream with reservation and steadfast excitement for what still may come.
I know many of you have been through heartache too and know how hard it can be. If I can do anything to help one person who also felt like their heart was ripped open, it will have been worth airing the personal pain I go through this season. You will see how I secretly wish to scratch out the eyes of one woman on the show, and yet hope in doing so I do not break a nail. LOL.
I hope through what you see on the show you are able to find a sense of connection to a time when you felt how I did, and I hope I have your support as I take this journey and that by doing this show it brings me to a place where I am able to make a difference in any way I can.
This season to me is about every good and hard feeling one can experience. I have embraced them all. I share all of my heartfelt experiences with you in hopes that I can share your stories and try to support all of those that can relate. I encourage you to share your successes and hardships after my blogs and know that I am there with you and want you there with me.
Aside from some of the crazy cattiness, friendships are something I deeply value. Having a true friend share your life is like listening to songs that always make you smile. Music gets me through my hardest life moments and propels me to celebrate the happy ones from all life has to give. Songs are what help us heal, especially when it seems like time is all we have. For every family member, friend, or songwriter who ever helped me heal after a hardship and brought me to happy joyful tears, I sincerely thank you. I feel so blessed to have the real friends in my life. Nowadays, people tend to lose sight of what's important, especially in this world of new technology (cell phones, texting, tweeting, etc.) and having to keep up with the fast paced day-to-day challenges. I can honestly say that no matter what these girls had going on in their lives, they never left my side and helped me get through. I'm very thankful to all of my friends for the compassion, love, and support they showed me this year.
My ultimate goal is to do charity events to help raise money for animals shelters, children’s hospitals, cancer societies, MS research, and to raise money for families in need of financial support and food. Good deeds come in all shapes and sizes. Even if it's just a word of advice that I can give to someone out there that may need help, that would make everything that I went through, as hard as it was at times, without a doubt 110 percent worth it.
I sincerely believe, no matter who you are or where you are from, we all really have the same day-to-day issues to overcome (some differently than others), but there always comes that point in everyone’s life when they need the support of good friends (which I refer to as "Little Angels") to be there and help get them through what seems impossible. I was there at one point too and was lucky enough to be blessed with three "Little Angels" this year -- Gretchen, Alexis and Peggy. You guys are the best!!! Love ya!
