Day 414 ~ #7 of My 30 Days of Truth...

My 30 Days of Truth challenge   I will admit that I changed one question and changed a few curse words... other than that the challenge is intact. 

Day 7: Someone who has made your life living for.

Having given this much thought... I would have to say my children. 

For many years my sons gave me strength... they were and still are my reasons to live.

However I have to add that in more recent years, five and a half to be exact... I have to say that my daughter Calley has been my saving grace.

Seems that my relationship with my sons has, for a lack of a better description- has seen its better days.  I constantly have to work at it and not give up on them.  I do want to say that my eldest and I are working on reconstruct... no not reconstruct, but rebuilding our relationship.

So as I was saying, Calley has been my saving grace... because without her I don't know how I would have managed my lack of a relationship with my sons.

Finally, with my husband at my side... well let's say anyone {else} in their right mind would have left me years ago!  LOL!  In all honesty Dean has had to see me go through a lot of pain... and I thank God everyday for him.

I thank God everyday for my husband and my children.

I loved reading about your challenge. I was looking at some of the questions and trying to think how I'd respond and I think the answer is - there's still a bunch of stuff I don't want the world to know!! I admire your willingness to share yourself, and good luck with the challenge!! Lisa

Carla, I too admire your willingness to put it out there and to share what you are going through. I'm so glad you have your family, and especially your daughter and husband! Much love to you!

Good luck rekindling your relationship with your sons. I feel like the one between my son and I is stressed as well. Have a good week!
