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.
There is no question about it... there are
- My first born
- My second born
- My third born
I have to be honest... there have been times in my life... okay I'll give you an example... wink, wink...
How about the time... it was the summer of 1978, just shortly after all the publicity of the Hillside Stranglers. They were killing women of all ages left and right in Southern California... I and another fifteen year old girl decided to hitchhike from the San Fernando Valley (a suburb just north of Los Angeles) to Yosemite... a 310 mile voyage... All I can say is OH MY G!! Not only that, but we hitchhiked back too. My family clueless...All I have to say is that God had to have been watching over me! and I hope not to be as clueless as my parents were with me, with my own daughter.
As the years passed I have been faced with many other difficulties and I have to say that all three of my children have watched over me without their knowledge... I would have to definitely say that they have saved my life on more than one occasion.
There have been many difficult circumstances in my life, some that have put me in fetal position too! which have included the loss of my sons by my side. However... the thought of my children... the visions of their little faces have given me unknown strength to move on and to better myself.
As I sit here and look back at all the crazy things I have done, all I can say is that I am so grateful to still be alive, watch my children grow into wonderful human beings and be able to make a difference.
That's right... I still have to make a difference... help someone in need...
