Many men have let me down. I've been lied to, hurt, sexually abused, emotionally fucked over. I have been beaten down so badly that I no longer know who I am. I can no longer trust my own instincts to make the right decisions.
I have two great sons - Mason (21) and Chance (18). They have grown to be wonderful men. I'm so very proud of them.
I am the oldest of three. I have two much younger brothers - Jesse (7 years younger) and Justin (17 years younger).
I love them so very much and I'm so grateful that all these men are in my life. They have stood strong around me, especially during this emotional time. I know I can always count on them.
Happy Birthday, Jesse! You'll always be my little brother.
