I was twenty-six years old, smart, independent, accomplished, and alone. I was just a few years into my first military assignment, two years past my mother's untimely death, one year beyond a bad break-up, with my then fiance, and six months after having a lump removed from my breast. I was in a good place, but it didn't feel like a great place. I was still healing hurts, finding hope, and growing faith.
I grew up without knowing three of my grandparents. They died before I was born, so most of what I saw and learned in my formative years was from my mother and father's generation. They were young…and a little reckless. My father's mother died from cancer when I was five years old. She was not married and had two children with different fathers. My father had two half-siblings, one with the same mother, the other with the same father.
My mother had six brothers and sisters. On either side of my family there were only a few examples of an enduring marriage. The others were either divorced, had multiple marriages, or never married-with kids. My sister married, divorced, and remarried. I don't believe my half-brother ever married, but at last count, he had seven kids…I think.
My parents' marriage and divorce shaped my hopes and dreams for my own future as well. I didn't grow up with a dream of fining Prince Charming, getting married and having kids. I grew up wanting to be successful, not wanting to be on welfare, and being able to do it all on my own…just in case.
