A few decades or so ago my mother made her way back down to Mississippi where she gave birth to the youngest of her 4 children. Already having had 2 sons and a daughter, she gave birth to ME in a small town: Kosciusko, MS. Other than being the birthplace of Sunshine Ray (me), the only more notable event to ever occur in Kosciusko, MS was the birth of Oprah Winfrey! I just read that she has a street named after her there (only fitting I suppose). I’m thinking that when I become famous (for whatever it is I’ll become famous for) I’ll be sure to speak with Oprah and find out how I go about having the street I was born on named after me!
Shortly after I was born my mom moved back to Central Illinois where we lived happily ever after………….ok, I’m joking, about the happily ever after part anyway.
The truth in its’ entirety is juicy enough to write a book about (and my kids are trying to convince me to write it) but at this point I’ll protect the innocent and give an edited version!
I grew up in Decatur, Illinois. In 2001 my kids and I moved to Springfield, Illinois. In 2005 I graduated from nursing school and in 2013 we moved back to Decatur. On February 26th 2016 my daughter’s dad and I got married.
Long story short: all the things I’ve seen and been through along the way have brought me here today. A point where I’d like to share information, ideas and stories that I think helped me and will hopefully help others!
