My Words

ARH Adventures

The stories of our everyday lives might seem plain and insignificant, but they could just be the light someone else is looking for. I learn a lot of lessons from life, mostly the hard way. But I want to share those stories and adventures and lessons with you in hope that maybe they will help you feel a little less lonely on hard days.  We can all use a little reminder that it is okay to be human and okay to tell the story of being human. We can't stop the challenges but we can feel a little less alone when we share those moments together. Welcome friend to the adventures of A Repurposed Heart.
