This is an old blog from one I started years ago I found it last week but I want to save them to my main blog so bare with me!
Putting My Writing and Thoughts to Good Use
Well I am constantly reading blogs and actually writing things myself day to day. SO, I decided I would Blog all of my writings etc so that I would have a record of it and also have all my writing in ONE spot. I truly wish I had starting Blogging before my accident so that all the details of the last four years were more like a story rather than little memories and thoughts from multiple synapse firings throughout the day. The ADD frame of mind.
I started this Blog because for years and years I have been told by homeless people, average Jon and Jane Does, the millionaire, the famous singer/songwriter, and the famous sitcom actor/actress, that i am special, unique, mysterious, witty, bitchy, and even very intelligent.....a former state swimmer, head cheerleader, dean's list, homecoming court, class favorite, teen mom, go getter, two time divorcee, wild child, recluse, experienced one of a near death experience, single mom four times over, a dreamer, creative, kranky, hard exterior, etc etc......but yet Denna you are such a .......average southern gal.
I have been through some hell in my day and even raised my share of it. My mother will most definately vouch for that. My dad, well he would vouch for that also and also add .... she may have been hell on wheels sometimes but she's tuff as a pineknot and hangs in there like hair in a biscuit. My mama feels the same but her reply was always....she was of the devil and i knew it from the time i nearly died having her to all the times she nearly died while i was raising her :) haha I was a pain but it came from my strong will and stubborn demeanor. At the same time I never met a stranger and was friendly and loving. Thank God my parents raised me firm but managed not to dampen my spirit. As a neurosurgeon that I worked for for 11 years referred to me, a firecracker, which also blossomed into another nickname, TNT!! Thats fine by me because great things do come in small packages. I like to walk in somewhere and impose only lightly.......then.....BANG i make sure all understand the things I am TRULY capable of.
Well enough for today....just a preview. I was a teen mom, not like the show teen mom, making it on the cover of People Magazine was NOT my experience having a child so young and continuing to raise him alone for 22 years. Nope I never made it to a magazine cover yet I am a role model in one way that I also never ended up on the front of Hard Times Magazine or in the local arrests forum. BUT Teen Mom is only the beginning of my journey. I have been a student, a teacher, a mentor, the mentored, a secretary with a four year old on medicaid, married and divorced two times over, a kickboxing queen, a work a holic, a stay at home mom, both, a free spirit, a nervous wreck, a narcoleptic, life of the party, the party pooper, a single mom of four, domestic violence, June Clever, Roseanne, College graduate, Mrs. Jones, Hospice Nurse, On call that is, worked for state, worked for Avon, almost opened my own business, and a Director of Nursing for a corporate company. Best friend, lover, wife of a coach.....a coach of three and four sports at a time at times. I am the happiest woman in the world with fairy tale stories and sad case country music video about the southern girl that started young and has never been anywhere and has been misjudged and mistreated and at times treated better than i should have been. So ok audience, thats me in a nut shell. That does NOT even break the ice on all the things i have been through, experienced, and seen. I am woman hear me ROAR. No man that i have ever known could have endured what i have been through and picked myself up from and continued on. Watch me as i keep going. My closest friends and family KNOW, please dont get in her way while on a mission, she will pick up and take you on her journey OR if she has a premonition of you and its a bad one,she will step on you on her way to her mission. THEN LOVE YOU.
For more of my so called life that.......according to my soon to be sister in law.......should be a weekly reality sitcom....nuff said.
