Hi, My name is Ashley. My life as been spent in love and joy. Giving to every one without thinking about it. I have no regrets about that. I am passionate about animal rescue, a vegan, spiritual, loyal friend, the truth and many things. I have always been very happy, made a nice living. Met my husband when we were both 40. I lost him 3 yrs. later to a sudden heart attack. I am blessed to have experienced such a great love. No children, animals were our family. I nurture and rescue animals. For me a home is not a home without animals. Four yrs ago, I lost my home, May 17, the day before my 50th birthday ( Happy Birthday, welcome to your 50's! lol) I do have a list of health issues a mile long that normally I do not tell people about. Focusing on being as healthy as I am able works better for me. When I am taking care of me, my way I do very well. My wishes may seem trivial to some. To me they are essential to painting again, creating my own life. I love to create a home where people are so comfortable they have a hard time leaving. Giving back which is also receiving is thriving! There are no 'programs' to fit my situation and at this point I wish to be in a place where I am able to be healthy emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically. I love life and know I have many more things to do. I don't know of any other way of stating 'facts'. I am NOT looking for pity. It is difficult for me to ask for help and I would rather be in a position of giving. Please won't you see if you can help in some way? Thank you for reading this.
