Over my entire life I've had such a strong support system. Family and friends that have always been there for me… to lift me up, to encourage me, and to bust my rump, if need be.
Who has gotten me through the most? These incredible people:
My parents – Without whom I don't know what I would do. They both were/are always there for me. The guidance and encouragement is immeasurable. My mom and dad have together and at times individually, gotten me through some tough times. When I was younger, there were times I may not have appreciated what they were doing but, realize now that they were doing what was best for me.
Mary – My friend Mary. Even though we don't live as close to each other anymore, I know without a doubt that if I really needed her, she would be here. She has been an inspiration in my life, in ways I know she doesn't even know.
Robin – I've talked about how much I've laughed with my friend Robin, recently, but I've also cried on her shoulder more than anyone else. Her advice has been a great source of comfort and help many times over. If you read my "friends" post you'll recall she has been my friend for over 31-years now.
My Hubby – Is my rock. Over the last twenty years he has been my biggest supporter, my biggest fan. When I'm down, he knows what to say and do, to lift me up. In the roughest times (thankfully they've been few and far between), he has gotten me through them, stronger than ever. When I doubt myself, he won't put up with it, quite frankly. He says no one is ever going to say anything negative about his wife… not even his wife. 🙂
I don't know where I'd be without the love and support of these five amazing people in my life. I'm glad I don't have to know. Who has gotten you through the most in your life?
