Coat of many colors
I need to share more about myself. I am someone who wears a coat of many colors. In my mid-twenties, I was a bartender, made great money, and had much fun. My husband and I had divorced, and I had to find something l could make money at.
Was I going to be a cougar?
Then I started having these thoughts: age, looks, weight, divorce. I worked in country music at red-neck places and saw these older women chasing after younger guys, and they were not the good-looking, rich cougar type. No, I was not.
I was confused with life.
I cried out to the Lord for help. I did not know how to do anything else to support myself and felt stuck. At thirty-three, I let my ex-husband come back and live with me. We eventually got remarried. The Lord led me to work with a girl to learn about the cleaning industry, and after a year, I started my own business.
My son and his wife were having problems, and she left him and was doing drugs for years and moved off and left three small children. I then had to move to help my son look after my grandchildren and started a minor cleaning service. I closed the bigger one.
Moving on to higher learning
Going to school after all those years was hard, but I did it. I wanted to increase my learning skills, so I took my GED, and my whole family attended graduation. This was my greatest accomplishment.
I then went to college at forty for business. I worked at the college until I graduated.
I was an office manager at an Assisted Living then went on to work at a Church for several years until my husband died in 2014.
Sewing on the last colors of my coat.
My friend of fifty-seven years and I started a cleaning business together. Then she had to retire due to sickness. My sister agreed to work with me. Then my knees gave out. My sister completely took over, and I started taking writing courses. This was the first thing I had wanted to do at 12 years old. This will be my last career or I would rather say my hobby. I would also like to use it to help others with my experiences.
