Seven things…

One Lovely Blog Award?

Really? You read the rantings I post? Wow. Thank you, sophie12hours! Love your blog, Sophie! Even though we all know that isn’t your real name.

So I’m going to try this, too. Apparently… there are rules to this.

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  • Share seven things about yourself.
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers.

Seven things about me:

  1. My real name isn’t Ray, but like Sophie, I’m protecting the people I love. This writing is mostly for me, certainly not for my family, and I would rather it stay that way.
  2. I have gone back to school to get my degree in business management. Apparently, I didn’t have enough to do during the day.
  3. I love football. I miss it when it isn’t football season. I love spring and summer, but find myself wishing it away just so I can get my football fix.
  4. My sister passed away recently of a heart attack. She was 30. Left behind three small children. I’m still not ready to discuss that yet.
  5. I am a sexual abuse survivor. The #metoo movement has recently brought up some old feelings and I am considering therapy for the first time.
  6. My children are my life. I never felt like a whole person until I had them. They make life worth living and the main reason I quit drinking.
  7. I am an alcoholic. I have struggled for 10 years with being a drunk on a daily basis. I am on day 18 of living sober. See #6 for the main reason I quit.

So, that was that. All that is left for me to do is nominate seven other blogs, so here are seven writers who inspire me and whose blogs I regularly read:

Thank you all for writing.
