Hello. My name is Shelley. I’m a 50-something wife, mother of 3, and grandmother of 2. In February of 2014, my youngest – Bri (pronounced with a long I as in “sky”) – was in a tragic car accident that took the life of her friend who was driving and left Bri fighting for her life with a traumatic brain injury — changing her life, and ours, forever. Life since then has been a devastating storm, an amazing adventure, a beautiful gift, a tough education and a priceless treasure. This is my journal.
