Those of you that know me, have heard my favorite quote.
If you never tell a lie, then you will never have to remember what you have said..
Welcome to my Reality
I have a wonderful husband of fourteen years now, well will be in April, Matthew, together we have five children: Angela, Matthew, Lillian, Michael, and my last one Rachel. They are all really wonderful kids; we try our best to raise them with the best of respect and morals. I'm not at all an angel nor is he but we would like to raise our children to be if at all possible.
Let's see.. from the beginning, where to start.
I was born in Riverview, FL and lived on the corner of fifth and tucker until my father had a heart attack and my parents decided TN would be cheaper to live. My father was a retired Marine after 23 yrs retired at an E-8 I believe.. my mother did not work at all until after the heart attack incident, then she got a job at a correctional institute and ran a ceramic shop in our back yard in Riverview. They were really strict parents, but good ones.. we always knew we were loved. I say we because I am the youngest of seven children. My oldest sister is 52 I think.. don't quote me on that one. It's like worlds apart and definitely feels that way. I just recently started communicating with her after many years, I have her on my ICQ now.. : ^ )
I had an easy childhood I do admit, we went skating daily and to Bush Gardens every weekend, you couldn't want for anything more. It was just me and my brother at home now that all the other five were out on their own. So financially they could afford it, but we had to do our chores and what my parents wanted too.. it wasn't a free ride.
One of the most memorable moments in my life was myself, my brother, and my parents eating dinner at the table watching the local news on the television and they had Wednesdays child on showing a family of six brothers and sisters that were in need of adoption. We had all gotten full and plenty left on our plates, as usual.. and my mother was telling my father.. look at all that waste, all that food that we throw away could feed those children. Next thing I knew we were adopting the children we had seen on the television that night.
Needless to say the skating and amusement parks were out, but that's all good we had actually become bored with it anyway, well I had, wouldn't want to speak for my brother. From the start I was a little uhm... unsure about it all.. but in the end I can honestly say with the exception of one, they are all really great people that were ripped off in life by unforeseen circumstances through no fault of their own.
I love every one of my brothers and sisters.. not that you could tell because we don't communicate much. More circumstances that would take way too long to go into would be why. Regardless I wish none of them ill fate and hope all their dreams and wishes come true.
Currently I reside in southern middle, TN.. I would get you a map but then I don't want to.. haha.
