This is a challenge from @celticeagle about introducing yourself to new and older members here. Most of y'all know me but not everyone does. So, I'm a wife and a mom to 5 children. I Home School my kids which we all love. My family loves God and we try to show others love whenever we can. I live in FL right now but I was born and raised in NY, then lived in NC for 10 years before moving to FL. My husband and I met in an online chat room, 13 years ago. Sometimes love online works, for us it did! We have been through it ALL, including 2 miscarriages, being homeless 3 times, moving so so many times, going through the typical relationship struggles and life struggles. I LOVE singing, people say I have a good voice however I'm extremely nervous on stage. I also love to write-which I do best during dark times. And I enjoy reading as well-mostly thriller/mysteries. I don't drive because I freeze up behind the wheel whenever I get scared-not safe for anyone. I love storms and Fall the best, cooler weather makes me happy! That's it for now... Your turn!

You've moved 40 times? Is that the truth or a typo? I can't imagine this. I've moved ten times in my life and find that much.

@MALUSE That is the actual number, yes. Sad, but true. Some of those times was moving back in with my parents 4 times after being married.

I didn't know you could sing or had miscarriages. So sorry about the latter! My mother was afraid to drive, but got her license when I gave her grand babies. lol

Our daughter-in-law is also afraid to drive. She has her learning permit, but I do not think she will ever drive.

Thanks for sharing this with us. I learned some new things about it and I learned why you are such a strong woman. You have been through so much but your faith gets you through the many struggles and obstacles. I may post one of these in a bit.

I know a lot of people who don't drive! It's made me feel less weird about it, realizing that it's ok to decide not to drive.

I knew everything except that you sing. I know many people who do not drive, for me I am comfortable driving and always wanted to be a race car driver :)

I also have driving anxiety, so I don't drive either. Fortunately, I live in an area with a decent public transit system.

Thanks for sharing. Some of this I already knew, some I didn't. I am sorry you experienced miscarriages and being homeless so many times. Sometimes going through hell with another person really brings you closer together.

I knew a lot about you, but not how you met or that you can sing. I still remember the post about Li'l Julian and when he was born, that made my heart melt, your children at so adorably cute, each and every one of them!

I had a miscarriage and a still born, so I understand the pain and struggle that goes with those. You are such a strong lady!

@thislittlepennyearns I'm sorry that you have been through that. =( Having a still born is worse I think because you get to see your baby but never raise them. You are strong as well.

well that was pretty interesting to read I remember when we 1st met on Facebook & as we learn a lot about other people we learn MORE by something like this to read. I have a lot to write about who I am & where I came from & all that stuff, so it'd have to be a book of some sort... but to give others an IDEA about who I am & what I'm about I'll just say I'm a woman of truth & I love learning about other people & helping if I can. I met my husband 32 yrs ago at a truck stop & have been through the ringer just as much as anyone, but we have always pulled through with gods help, I have learned MOST the things I do in life on my own, I believe in God's word that he loves us ALL. I have had my own business raising rabbits in Fla for 15 yrs & we have lost a lot in our lifetime over the yrs but we just keep going to make life a little better if we can. I love working online making whatever friends & money I can & sharing things what I have learned in life with them, I love country & western music just as much as I like the oldies & doing the crafts I do when I have the things I need to do them. This is who I am & what I do I love with my heart & soul & share the word of God with everyone that will listen & wants to learn the word of God to better their lives.
