It is not always easy to put on a happy face, but you plowed through it.
When on door closes, another one opens. Happy New Year! My best.

Sending you all the best in 2020 and beyond! I so appreciate your blog…thank you for the work you put into it! I loved “Offspring”! “Rake” is another quirky, funny Australian…show I enjoyed, too.

Happy New Year!

Here’s to 2020 and new beginnings! You made it through Christmas. New beginnings are scary, but exciting. Better is to come!

I hope you are proud of yourself—you are a survivor and have many friends both near and far standing with you. May 2020 be a great year for you!

Hang in there Sherry, it is only natural to feel the way you do. If you weren’t feeling a little lost then there would be something amiss. I am glad to hear you have discovered ‘Offspring’. Asher Keddie is a much loved actor here. Her character ‘Nina Proudman’ inspired many fashion bloggers to create a weekly post just on what she wore. There was definitely a ‘Nina’ style worn by many women. You may find it interesting that Asher is married to a well known artist Vincent Fantauzzo. In Brisbane where I live, we have ‘The Fantauzzo’ Art Series Hotel where his art is displayed in the rooms and public spaces.

Happy New Year Sherry. Onward and upward.

Sherry – Bravely sharing your deep, personal pain is an act of courage. You are on the road to healing, and from there you will move onto peace and joy. I wish you all good things on your journey.

Ann is so right! Sharing your pain showed your courage. Without your sharing, we would not have known you needed your tribe surrounding you and praying for protection and healing.

As with everyone else, I wish you the best in 2020. Just realize what matters is who is with you now! You have a whole group of grateful followers aka friends who are in your corner.
We are women; hear us roar. We’re on this journey with you all the way! What affects you, affect us and we won’t let you down.

You are living out my single biggest fear. I’m really sad that you have to experience this cruel abandonment. I honestly hate that men can do this to women…hoodwink them into sharing and loving and trusting with their whole heart and then shatter them, often without warning. May God fill all the gaping holes this has torn into the fiber of who you are with His peace and love in 2020 and restore the truth that you have infinite value and worth. Pamela

I just wanted to say that I am so impressed with how you have handled this all. You are much stronger than you think. I hope you have had to chance to talk to him in person for some closure. That was a totally shitty, wimpy move for him to do this like he did. I wish you nothing but happiness in the future!

Well, whether you felt it or not you sure had a full Christmas! Your social life is to die for…
Here’s to 2020! the best is yet to come. xoxo from your league of followers

Here’s to a better year! I know you can’t just put it all behind you, but I think you’re doing a great job living your best life. Thanks for sharing your highs and lows with us and showing everyone how you’re doing with grace. I love seeing your beautiful work. Those Christmas stockings bring back memories of ones my mom made for us in the 70’s, except ours were cowboy boots made of denim (we lived on a ranch).

Tough times for sure, but as Coco Chanel says……You’re classy and fabulous….and that will always be true about you! Love that black bag and those combat boots! Here’s to continued style (in all aspects of your life) in 2020! Debbie

Hi Sherry,
We’ve never met but I feel like I know you. We’re the same age & I’ve followed your blog from practically the beginning. I have to say…
You are much stronger than you realize. I would have crawled into a hole & not come out. I’m so amazed that you put on a smile & socialized. I hope 2020 is kinder to you.

I ditto every and all comment above… YOU GO GURL!

Offspring is the best! My mom turned me on to it and I watched the whole thing in a just a few weeks. If you watch other Australian shows you will see a lot of overlap with the actors, but this group is the best. By this point you’ve also made it through New Years! You don’t have to be happy and fun in front of everyone, all the time. What you’re going through SUCKS!!! I’m glad to read you have such wonderful friends and family to help you through it. Don’t stop posting. I love your style!
xoxo, Julie

I’m so glad you got out and socialized even though I know it wasn’t always easy! You’re a beautiful, talented and charming woman who has so much to give to someone who deserves you! Wishing you the best in 2020!!! Your blog always brightens my day!

Sherry,
As others have said, you are very brave and strong! Thank you for sharing your journey with us, because we truly do care. Those who have been through dark days know just how hard it is to put on a happy face and push through. But you made it through, so YAY for YOU! Praying that 2020 brings you healing and peace.

Wishing you a new beginning for this new decade. Your blog is such a joy to follow, you always make me laugh even when I know you are dealing with something very painful. We love you, Sherry! Hang in there, it will get better.

Often when something happens unexpected I recall the words my Grandmother instilled in me; “The only thing I can promise in life is change, it’s how you react that makes you who you are. Remember, you only control yourself.”, she was a strong, wise Southern Lady. Those words have helped to handle so many situations, that were not of my creation. The understanding that fault and bitterness will never help me to move on, the freedom of choosing to accept and be happy. I hope you may find a little wisdom in her words as well. Wishing you strength, hope, grace and acceptance –

So glad you made it through I was thinking of you and hoped you were doing well throughout the holidays. 2020 will be your year!

Ditto “GREY DOVE”, these are wise words. Keep that inner strength Sherry, and remember that time does heal (or at least weaken
the hurt).
So glad you had a busy and fun holiday with your family and friends… Happy New Year!🎆 Bonnie G.

way to be real! life is messy, it tries to kick your ass. sometimes we let it, sometimes we fight back. but we breathe thru it all and savor the moments of real joy- and try not to exhale for fear it will be awhile before we feel “joy” again. but we can’t stop time and on we go.
you my dear, you show up , you are real — you don’t hide and you make us all better for it. cheers to you

You are stronger than you realize and who knows, there may be someone whose reading your blog that needed to hear the words you are saying. Good things can come out of bad things, I strongly believe that!! You are an inspiration to all of us, keep it up and cheers to a new and better year!!

It’s called RESILIENCE , what I’m reading and seeing here. May feel like you’re faking it, going through the motions…but you’re doing it for YOU, not for others benefit. When my husband died at 53 of cancer, I thought I could lay like a puddle on the floor (and many people do, and there’s no shame there, everyone is different) or I could try and find a bit of joy in each day. Every marriage has struggles, we all try and overcome differences sometimes peacefully and sometimes not. Such great pics and holiday experiences and honest reflections on empty spaces. You’re doing it though. Don’t look too far forward, deal with today. Sorry I’m rambling, but I care.

there is a quote I love, and try to consider, not always successfully, but here goes;

“I deserve better, I deserve to be loved, wildly and passionately, deeply. I deserve to be known and accepted, and appreciated.
That is not something you are capable of.” by Samantha Matthews. Repeat.

Sherry, you are loved and admired, with many many friends and family whom care. The cowardice shown you stings massively now but you WILL emerge stronger and even better. power to you!
