In March of 2014, my husband was involved a very serious motorcycle accident. Would you believe the next year, almost to the date, my firstborn son was nearly killed on his motorcycle by a drunk driver while coming home from work? And to top it all off my middle son was involved in a minor motorcycle accident that same year.

After my son's horrific accident that left him unable to walk, my husband who was still recuperating and myself decided we wanted to start a NonProfit Organization for people who had been hurt or killed while riding their bikes. We decided to call it Miracles on 2's.  

At the time of his accident, he received a Hip Replacement. Sadly, in March of this year, 2016 my husband of 32 years passed away from an infection in the hip. He was a fun loving, very hip, love to hit the dance floor kind of a guy!

Suddenly my life had been redesigned and I found myself walking around in grief for 3 months wondering where do I go from here? Obviously, none of this was our plan but God's and so I have no choice but to go on with my life.

But the better question for me was how?  I couldn't go back to being his wife...not in the earthly realm, though in my heart we are married forever. So, it was after I first heard about Reimagining Myself that I began to perk up and give thought to a new me. But it was scary and then I suddenly remembered that I had dreams that were still unaccomplished, And one of those dreams was to finish the plans my husband and I had started...To get Miracles on 2's up and running!

I am 62 years old and have been a homemaker and mother all of my adult life. Now, I have to find ways to metamorph into something new and beautiful again! Hopefully, I will be chosen so I can began again to have the best life....REIMAGINED!

Thank you for the opportunity to share some of my story with you!
