Welcome to Breaking To Mend! Allow me to introduce myself — My name is Elizabeth Ann, and I am a wife, mother of two, as well as a writer of novels, poetry and now blogs. I have been writing for as far back as I can remember, but to an audience of one.

In starting a blog, my goal was to write through the grief, the pain and the loss in my life in order to bring myself to the point of mending. I came to the paper broken and looking to find a way to move through. I chose to do what I had done for most of my life, speak my truths through writing. In writing for an unknown audience, I found myself hidden between the words. In sharing my findings, I offer my solidarity to those who also share in similar experiences and the battle within them. The lessons that laid lurking as golden nuggets located dead center within my experiences, started to reveal themselves and the process of mending began. Sharing my stories became cathartic, a healing of wounds as well as a giant magnifying glass highlighting the countless blessings that have come from both the good as well as the bad.

Welcome to my life, I hope that you enjoy what you read as much as I have enjoyed writing it! More importantly, I hope that you find the same ability to mend through examining the cracks, and finding humor in the mediocre along with the outrageous. Kick up your feet and stay a while…
