Aerica is 13
So it has been a year since my last post, 365 days of change. It would be fair to say I am a different person today than I was a year ago. I am now a divorced, single Mom, attempting to adjust to this new role. I resisted this route as long as possible, but found myself without another option. Over the last year I have tried to locate the remnants of the girl I was before the trials of my marriage made me unrecognizable to myself. I searched for the strengths I had lost, or the ones that had been broken and forgotten. I have found them. I have also found new undeveloped strengths, qualities that are born in times of trials. So, along with some of the former me, and some of the freshly found me, a new, strong, independent me has emerged with full force.
To those who have stood beside me, cried with me, supported me, Thank you. To those who have made me laugh, made me feel beautiful, held my hand, Thank you. The words of comfort, care and encouragement have been vital in my survival and I can never express the gratitude I feel in my heart for this. Thank you again.
Now where was I, Oh yeah, Aerica is 13. This engaging growing girl is the light of my life. She is witty, kind, and smart. She is caring, and has become one of my best friends. This past year she has endured a whirlwind of change, and has weathered it beautifully. She is an example to me every day, and I have tried to be an example to her. Her soft words of encouragment will forever be ingrained in my memory. I love you Aerica.
Aerica is the typical teen. She loves to go to the mall and "hang out" with her friends.
Her favorite car is a "slug bug". She wants a convertible one. When she saw one at the mall, she HAD to sit in it!
