This Weeks Questions:

1. Tell us about the family you grew up in; parents, siblings, grandparents?:
I grew up in Jackson, MS with my real parents/family: mom, dad, brother & sister. My parents split when I was 19. My sister was killed by a drunk driver. She has an 8 years old daughter & she was 6 months pregnant with a son. She also had a fiancé & 2 "step-children": a step-daughter & step-son. Now I live with my dad, step-mom & half-sister. I was close to all 4 of my grandparents, but only my dad's mom is still living. My dad has a brother & 2 sisters, but none of us are close. My mom is an only child, but I was very close to one of my grandmother's sisters (my mom's aunt, my great aunt).

2. Tell us about your husband, fiancé, boyfriend, significant other?:
I got married in 2000 when I was 19. We divorced in 2006 when I was 27, after a 2 year separation. Then I was in a serious relationship for 7 years; we are still friends though. I have been in my current relationship since 12/2013.

3. Tell us about your children &/or fur children?:
I lost my daughter in 12/2005 & another daughter in 11/2006. I have also had 4 miscarriages. I currently only have 1 furbaby, a tiny teacup chihuahua.

4. Tell us about your best friends; How long have you known them? How did you meet?:
I have 2 best friends: Angela, who I've known for 13 years. We met through our (ex)husbands when we were stationed with at Army in Fort Campbell, KY. And Ashley, who I've known for close to 8 years. We met on Greatest Journal. We met IRL in 11/2009, when she & her fiancé drove from PA to MS after I woke from a 10 day diabetic coma & was in recovery.

5. Tell us about any other special people in your life?:
My cousin Mary, who is not only family, but also a mentor & a friend. I don't know what I'd do without her. My mentors & friends: Christina & Angie. Mandee, Batmanda, Chelle & my other Warcraft friends. Of course I also want to include: Janet, Linda, Georgia & all my dialysis friends/super friendly nurses, techs & social worker, Anna.

I am a strong believer in finding mentors. Very cool that you have many and know the power of those relationships!
