Mad as Hell, A Mom’s Journey

67805803_697087257431635_6417660126479515648_n

My son is home and for the first time in a year I have exhaled. The book I wrote to not go crazy on this wild journey of my son’s addiction and incarceration is available this Thursday, September 12th on Kindle and Amazon. My hope is that anyone who reads it will know they are not alone and that I can provide some laughter and hope along the way.

Things that will never be ok

  
A. Kalief Browder– the New York teen held in Rikers for 3 years without a trial for supposedly stealing a backpack, rip baby I hope you found peace
1. Highwaist jeans, they look good on no one
2. Being mean to ANY animal

3. Posting your entire lif on social media- you are not that interesting

4. Dating someone who is married- they don’t want you I promise

5. Staying mad- forgive it will just make you ugly if you don’t

6. Continuing to deal with negative people- eliminate, eliminate

7. Talking down to another person you believe is less than you (you have no idea of their story)

8. Being an ass and speeding up when someone is trying to merge on a packed freeway

9. Spending more time working than enjoying your life

10. Not being grateful regardless of the circumstance, someone else always has it worse
