I have graced this earth for 71 years plus 17 days not counting the months developing inside my precious mother. I gone through so many changes over those many decades; some good; some not so good. All of the changes have made me into the person I am today. I am not everyone’s pick of a perfect daughter. I certainly was not my former husband’s perfect wife. I was a struggling single mother from the time my youngest son was ten months old. I worked many long hours to make ends meet especially when there was no child support coming in or when it didn’t cover their needs. Many days I had migraine heads from the stress and long hours working and caring for my three sons. That didn’t make for an example of a perfect mother. I made many mistakes during that season of my life. Did I feel sorry for myself? I guess some days I did but it’s all water under the bridge now. I’m on the other side of that time of life.
