This is ME

Hello… My name is Samantha Gallagher and I’m so happy you are taking the time to check out my blog!
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a Christian woman who is married to her best friend. We’ve been together for over 25 years. We have 5 grown children and 9 grandchildren. My husband is a truck driver and I’m a stay at home mom and grandma. This blog will give you a glimpse into the life of raising grandchildren (we are raising 5), having addicts as children (we have 2), dealing with special needs including autism and downs syndrome, living with depression and Lupus plus being the wife of an over the road truck driver. I feel very blessed to be walking this journey even though at times it can be overwhelming. My desire to write this blog came about after using a journal for my own personal therapy. My friend read it and said it needed to be shared for others to see they are not alone.  I’m excited to see where blogging will take us as I look for new things share with my readers.
I hope to show you the good and the bad of our day to day life. You might laugh or you might cry but in the end you will get a new insight on our life and how I take 1 step each day 2 make a change for the better!
