Iowa born and raised   Leave a comment

over the weekend I had this idea to write about my life.
No it isn’t all that interesting or probably all that different from most people’s lives, but I do have one ace up my sleeve that most people don’t have.
I have my mother.
She was (she passed away in 1992) an exceptional woman and also excentric and sometimes embarrassing.
But she was my mother and I have mostly fond memories of her.

in writing about me, I can only begin with her because without her, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

My father was a married man, and I was the product of an affair she had with him, so I have never had a father figure in my life.
So my mother was the sole provider of my youth.

Granted I had two older sisters, who molded me into who I am today as well, but my mother was my foundation.
My mother was the unique woman who gave me life and sheltered me and taught me………..and to her, is where I believe the credit should go.

So as I outline this story I began, I have to dedicate it all to my mother.
Because she is the one who had the most influence on me as a child and she is the one who God graced me with, to be my mother.

I love and miss you Mom.
