Sometimes we need to remind ourselves how far we have come. Every October I attend a candle light vigil at the very shelter that me and my kids entered when I left my abuser. We honor those who have survived and remember those who have lost the battle to domestic violence. I enjoy it because I get to see my advocate that I had while in shelter. She was my rock and my support through one of the hardest times of my life. She calls me her success story but I don't know if I would of been a success had it not been for her compassion and dedication to help me and my kids. She will always hold a special place in my heart. On the most recent visit she gave me an envelope with this article. It seems like so many light years ago. As I always say to be successful in the future we must remember where we came from.
