Wow Chutz this is kind of a hard one. There have been so many people in my life who have changed the course of my it. But I would have to say my husband, Mike. He is my second husband & he has taught me that I am important & have value. My first husband all but destroyed my self esteem & after I left him I was angry at all men. I went into counselling for about 9 months & that helped but I still hated men. My opinion of them was, well, let's just say "scum" is as good word as any & the nicest I can think of. Mike taught me that men are not all the same. I used to yell at him to leave me alone but he just told me he would always be there, when I was ready let him know. That was 25 years ago & I still respect & love him immensely & he has always treated me so well.
This was a good one, thanks, hugs, Denise

Wow... this is too tough for me. I feel like I've live so many life times in my 51 years or should I say I've had so many phases in my life, that the list would be too long.
Over all, I would say it was one of my bosses that became my best friend for years. She grew up in post WWII Germany. Her father was horrible to her, he was one of Hitler's SS. She had such a strong work ethic and she taught me that. I worked for her on and of for 20 years. Another thing she taught me was how to live on next to nothing, since that's the way she grew up. She was a tough boss but a dear kind and generous friend. I still see her now and then but she lives back east and I don't get back there as often as I would like.
I can not pick just one person I have had many in my life, I think it depends where we are and what we need. I do have to say that my Mom has always been by my side for support. Through it all she is My best friend and my hero.
