It seems like a lifetime ago. I guess, really, it has been. I got hooked! Maybe it was because, things were pretty tough back then. I needed a release. An emotional release; I guess. I had 3 kids and it seemed as though most of the necessities of life were in short supply at our house. I knew if we were ever going to have heat in the winter, air in the summer and a car that didn't have holes in the floorboard big enough for the kids to pick up rocks from; I was going to have to do something. I didn't know how we would make it because it was going to take a miracle. But, I had seen miracles before. As a matter of fact, several times! So, I started checking into a way to get started to college. I could hardly believe it when those people actually let me start. They even had papers that I could fill out and get money to go to college. I was scared, to say the least. But, we started on that path; a winding path that took us from pulling five gallon buckets of water from the pond; up the hill to the house in order to flush the toilets. It was a good thing we had one of those little red wagons.
