Tough lessons learned
  1. My mom was my best friend EVER! You really can parent effectively and give great wisdom, love, and friendship.
  2. You should be grateful for your body as is because you now wish you could go back and have the body that you cursed years ago.
  3. Hearing stories of friends and rocky relationships I now know that I was allowed to spend my life thus far with the man that was best suited for me. Lessons learned
  4. I really was going through menopause when my mom would bring to my attention my erratic moods. Denial. Whew, glad that is over.
  5. Not all things are what they seem. Friends can be toxic and your inability to see it is a flaw.
