Boogie Nana 6/29

This is Boogie Nana. She passed away on this day 13 years ago suddenly at the age of 52. About 1 year before I got sober.

She was the mother to my xhusband and fantastic grandmother to my son. My son was and still is her pride and joy.

My xhusband and her had a very contentious relationship. But her and I got along famously. She helped me in many ways because although she loved her son she knew first hand just how difficult he could be.

She would tell me “Danielle use your words!!” Funny because today…I write.

After she died my life changed dramatically. Her son and I divorced and I got sober. My spirit was awakened.

I can’t help but think that she has had a hand in the guidance and grace that entered my life the day my son was coming off the bus and I was a mess on the front lawn.

I feel she protects me and my son. I also feel that people leave this earth sometimes because they can help us more from the other side.

She sends me signs regularly. They come in the form of frogs. Later to find out that FROG stands for : Fully Relying On God.

Thank you Boogie Nana.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  2. Wonderful tribute, to Boogie, and you use your words beautifully… She must have known one day you would voice them in your writing….
    Have you thought of putting all of your thoughts into book format?… I can see how it would really help others heal.. ❤
    Much love ❤

    1. I have thought about the book maybe as a daily reflection type of thing – but then that thought comes and goes like the wind ❤️💜But thank you for the encouragement- I am very new to writing daily or having it make sense to others. I used to just scribble my “god thoughts” I called them just to get them out of me ha ha to understand. But typing and sharing is new this past year ❤️🙏❤️

  3. Love it Sis! That’s how I feel about my wife’s parents who are with the Lord now. They taught me so much and I feel they are still with me, at least their memories and their teachings are not dimming! 👍💗🕊😇
