Such is Life.

Such is Life.

I was abandoned at 3. Fostered and dumped at 13. Alcoholic relatives til 17. Then I hit the streets. But I always felt a spirit guiding me. I survived horrific things. My 3 brothers committed suicide. I refused. Married for 20 years. Became a terrific parent of two beautiful successful children. Divorced at 40, and now a Cancer survivor (I think) only to be abandoned by my two loving children. Such is Life.
