I once heard you don't need to be an expert to write. You just need to be an expert in your own experience. I write as a mother, a daughter and as a woman trying to find my way. Within a grief stricken heart, a great love once lived. With every tear shed, laughter has healed the soul. With each of life's blessings, a struggle was fought. With each rebirth of self, there was a journey out from under the rubble.
