Day 7: Somebody who has made your life worth living

Day 7 of 30 days of truth is tough but at least an up beat question.

Day 7: Somebody who has made your life worth living



I'm sure I'm supposed to be writing about ONE person here but I can't.  I have so many people who have shaped my life and made it what it is now.  They each have, in their own way, made my life worth living.

Obviously, my fiancee. Dave lived through my year of hell.  I cried a lot. I was miserable. I didn't understand how being unemployed and utterly poor could be so detrimental to my health and mental health.  He carried me through one of my hardest times.  I was revived with the return of sunshine in my life.  Besides that, he is one of the most patient and loving people in my support system.  I cherish that of him.

My mentors who have inextricably changed my life. Marla. Emily. Eva. These are the women who saw me through some mucky times. They made each of the situations bearable.  They helped me push myself through things that I didn't want to.  They showed me the truth.  They each advocated for me.  For that I am eternally grateful.

My friends.  Since my family is missing from my life and has been for some time, my chosen family, my friends have been a huge support network for me.  Being connected to my friends makes my life so worthwhile.  I regret not having too many friends in physical proximity but all the friends I do have, they are just a call/text/email away.  I love them to bits and pieces.

My neighbors! This is a new phenomenon in my life.  I wanted to share this and their existence because they have improved the quality of life for my little one.  The pup has been SO happy since we moved here.  My next door neighbor and some others in the vicinity have dogs who love to play with Lexi.  They are their own play group!  I've never really mingled with my neighbors or gotten to know them but I love it.  We're having a neighborhood dinner party in October.  SO exciting!
