I am almost 62 years young, yes years young. So to all out there who are my age and older now you have not to say that you are so many years older but younger. I am also a Christian and I am proud to say so. If I did not have God in my life then I would not be here I probably would be dead or if not dead then dead in spirit. A very bitter woman.

Why, you may ask, well, I wanna tell you a story as a very famous entertainer once said. I am Scottish though now live in England and I am about to become a Soldier in the Salvation Army. The Army has been good to me. The people have helped me through a lot. All through my life God has been taking me on an adventure. The first chapter was, I suppose, when I met my ex-huband and got married to him. We had 4 children, then in 1983 my life with let's call him Dougie became intolerable and I got thrown out without my children.

It was a Sunday night and I was in a desperate situation, it seemed nobody wanted me. I eventually got a place to stay. I did not know what to do, I was at rock bottom. My children were my life. That night I prayed to God for strength to help me get through this. I phoned my church minister and his words helped me. The next day I left where I was staying and I was trembling inside not knowing what to expect. I was guided to a solicitor's office. I knew my marriage was over but my children, I had never been without them. God was with me throughout.

The solicitor I was introduced to became my friend. I was fighting for custody of my children, then one Sunday I was in church and the minister's sermon I felt was directed at me, and I knew what I had to do. I was getting nowhere with my ex-husband, he had the kids. I saw them at the weekend but did not have a place to take them to. That Sunday I knew that for the sake of my children i had to drop the custody fight and I did. It was not an easy decision, but children cannot live on a monther's love alone. Almost 29 years on there are many more chapters in my book and the journey God has taken me on. The journey has not been an easy one. It has had its moments but God has been with me every step of the way. God Bless everybody.
