I was chatting with a friend last night and I had to stop and thank my lucky stars I am here today being able to type this.10 years ago I was a total mess,running dow the left lane on the drug and alcohol train without not caring about anything.I pulled myself out of it by attending some aa classes and na classes but it wasn't an easy road. And today I own my own home in the country with 91/2 acres. and own a home business. with a loving man who treats me like a queen...wow I still thank my lucky stars today for that road was hard and long but I am here happy, healthy and very content. How about you can you remember back 10 years?

I have to say I admire and commend you on your accomplishments. It takes great strength to admit ones past mistakes then greater courage to over come and defeat them. Great Job, you should be very proud of yourself. Ten years ago, I was working very hard, raising a family and struggling with sick and dying parents. It was a tough time in my life. Now I am a stay at home Nana, who adores her grand babies. I enjoy cooking for my whole family, I putz around my house and am currently looking forward to starting an outside project making a fantasy garden I can call my own. I work some for a friend who owns a computer shop, so with all that said I have to admit I have become a very contented and indeed a happy person. There are times in our lives we struggle, but in the end I believe as my mother use to say it all comes out in the wash.

It was a very hard lesson to learn but I am very proud of myself that I worked my way back to where I should be and thanks the Good Lord everyday for that.

I think I have progressed a fair amount, although not perhaps in the direction I thought I would be heading ten years ago. Back then, I was looking forward towards my career and thought I would limit myself to one child and be something of a work aholoc mom. Now things are the opposite, and my children take center stage in my life. I think sometimes things turn out as they were meant to be despite what we work for.

you are lucky mnflower but you made this luck happen and you seem to be a very strong person and that is wonderful when i am thinking ten years back i was living a total different life, i was still a student and was very much occupied by studies work and a relationship i had. now i am back at my parents at a crossroad that does not look bad but it is a hard one. well i hope you can ask that question again ten years from now..lol:)
