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.


  • 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:



There are so many more of you I would like to add, but seven was the number.

Thank you all for writing.
