||I was pretty much a stay at home mom. My husband and I had separated, a little more then ten years ago, he had beat his youngest son up, and I had him removed form the home that we rented at the time. I have 6 children, I raised two of my children mostly on my own, or did they raise me? Hmm! All my children are over 18 now. When the kids were old enough, I went to work,about 6 years later I started getting sick. I have had several mini strokes and have a pacemaker do to my atrial fibrillation, among other heath issues. Now I live with, I can say my best friend and partner. Who is a 30 year veteran of the fire department in the town I live. He gave me my self esteem and strength back.
He was the driver of the air boat in the movie Chain Reaction when they were filming it here in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. You just can't see him in the movie driving it.
He is 65 and works as a care giver in a Neuro Hospital, he loves his work, it is his way of giving back as he had a aneurysm many years ago and had to teach himself how to read and do things all over again for himself. So when the place he worked at shut there doors he found a job that he could give back. He always said I know how they feel.
He is a good man.
I don't have much to show for my life, but I sure do love my family and friends. I have a great partner in my life.
I am a little short for xmas this year so I thought I would try this.
