I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.
According to statistics, at least fifty percent of individuals will divorce within their lifetime. A great many of those individuals have children. Between the custody, who decides what, education, child rearing, doctor’s appointments, we think little about the future.
One day, whether it is by fate or choice, our children will leave the nest. After 18 or more years of hard labor, life as we know it will change. A great percentage of us will be single upon their departure. Very few are prepared, yet, with a little tough love on oneself, we can be more adjusted than less.
I was raised Catholic, moved on to Born Again Christian, and eventually settled into a non-denominational type of situation.
Years ago I ceased my weekly visits. No particular reason why, maybe it was the fact I liked to sleep in, have an entire Sunday to myself.
