Hacked, yes my Instagram @a.joyful.life was hacked. Last Monday, a normal Monday night I checked my email to find that I had a email from my hackers telling me that I had three hours to contact them or my account would be deleted or sold. Instead of contacting them I got back into my account to find they had already changed my name and my contact email; so I changed them back and changed my password and turned on the two factor authentication. We went back and forth for awhile; they would change things and I would change them back until I got logged out. When I attempted to log back in it said my account was set to be deleted, then I searched for it and could not find it.
And Just like that- my profile, my feed, all the pictures, all the connections and 23K followers gone. Needless to say I was in shock (still kind of am). I threw myself a pity party for all of about 2 minutes then I got up and started over. My new account is @thejoyfullifeof6.
Thankful I have my wonderful family and wonderful friends. Hopefully I will be able to find and connect with all the amazing people that I had connected with in my other account.
As long as I can remember I have been grateful for the little things. Today I am so grateful for our big home I get to raise my children in, but it’s the same gratitude I remember having when edwin and I first got married and were living in Honduras and didn’t have much; Continue reading “Gratitude”

“Everything that is done in the world is done by hope”
-Martin Luther King
We arrived at a small town down a long winding road, surrounded by mountains and divided from the rest of the world by a river that you can only cross one vehicle at a time over a small, rickety bridge. This town is correctly named protección, this means protection in English.
