Royal Purple Freedom Hop

2:53 AM
Welcome to the Royal Purple Freedom Hop nothing is more dear to my heart than what this hop signifies.  Women who have struggled and survived domestic violence.  I too am a survivor and I will get out! So many women have been subjected to domestic violence and feel so lost, worthless and like there will never be a light at the end of the tunnel, but there is!!  If your here for the summer hop just scroll down the page....



I created a card that has Believe which is believing in yourself and your strength and a "Special day" because the day I am totally free will be a special day for me and my 2 kids.


Your next stop is Gina and I hope your follow each and everyone of us on this journey.  Be sure to leave a comment and your link to be eligible for a goodie bag which will be a surprise!  !

That's a very inspiring card. You should make one for yourself to put up too to remind you that you will get out. Great job honey and good luck. Thank you for the chance to win and for sharing a bit with us.

I believe in you and you will get out!!! You have a great number of supporters here in this hop!!!

Your card is beautiful!! You making a card for another just shows that us women tend to take care of everyone else BEFORE we take care of ourselves! Sharing your story is the first step. Keep your eye on the prize!!!

So honored to be in this hop with you!!

You will succeed and I will be praying for that day for you. I remember what it was like to feel trapped and thinking, "How can I raise two kids on my own?" The sad part was that my parents lived down the block and had no idea the severity of things. My daughter was the courageous one and told her father she wanted to go live with Nanny because you don't treat people you love this way (she was 9 at the time). Please take heart in this story and I wish I could take you in right now.

Reach out and see what local resources can help you. You can do this and you and your kids will be happier. It may not be easy but it will be worth it.
