I have very fond memories of my childhood. Our family shared great times together, and most of all, the Lord always came first. We were very active in church. Now that I'm in my late 30's, life is still good even though I made some wrong turns along the way. I always continued to keep Christ in my life, but I wasn't always religious on making it to church on a weekly basis. This was due to laziness on my part. It was not making a positive impact on my children's lives. I ruined my life 20 years ago after I left home. I started smoking & quickly got addicted to nicotine. I'm sure my parents probably knew about it, but I was ashamed in myself, so I never smoked around them or any of my other family members outside of my immediate home. I was ashamed because Mom had breast cancer when I was 18.This addiction has cost me precious moments with my family as a whole, as I could not be around them for extended periods of time due to cravings for nicotine. Mom was diagnosed with Leukemia in January & treatment was going great, we thought. We were floored when they released her May 29, 2015 with 2 weeks to 6 months to live. She passed away 40 hours later. Faith, family & friends have gotten me through thus far. I now have WBCL on all the time. I am approaching 2 days without smoking. I pray that the Lord continues to ease my cravings so I can get back to making memories again with my family as a whole. May the Lord bless you like he has me!
