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 at which l could make money.

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.

Family obligations

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…
