Who Am I?

My trying to sum up 45 years in a few paragraphs seems difficult and I am sure I will edit and re-edit this page often.

  • I was born in 1971.  I’m an only child. (4 step-brothers now)
  • My Daddy passed away at 38 from a massive heart attack. I was 16.
  • I graduated from the University of MS in 1993 with a degree in education.  I earned my Master’s degree in special education in 1996.
  • I married (for the first time) in 1994 and had my first child and only son that year.
  • In 1995, I moved to CA with my Mom and son. You can not divorce while pregnant in MS, so I would have to wait.  In 1996, I had my second child, a daughter, moved back to MS, and got a divorce.  We had lasted only 2 years and now had 2 children.
  • In 2000, I remarried my first husband, but it was short lived and by that fall, we divorced again.  People don’t change!
  • In 2004, I met who would become my second husband.  We were married in 2007 and I had my third child, a daughter, the next year.  3 short years later we would divorce.
  • On October 31, 2013 I welcomed a beautiful granddaughter into this world.  She is a blessing from God.
  • Tragically, my second husband passed away from a heart attack in 2014.  He was only41 and our daughter was only 5.
  • For now, I block out 2013-2014.  I made horrible mistakes and feel I will pay for them for a long time.  Maybe someday I can address those here.
  • My second daughter, Dallas, passed away July 17, 2016.  That event is truly what has led me to writing this blog.
  • WHAT does the future hold?  That’s anyone’s guess.  I hope to be able to add many more good memories to this list someday.
