I am a 39 yr old christian wife and mother of 3. I live about 20 miles outside of New Orleans, LA. I have worked as a buffet waitress for the past 17 years. My family struggles financially most of the time but still try to assist the less fortunate and those in need. I love helping people and trying to brighten their day. My friends and family know I'm only a phone call away if they need my assistance for anything. No job is too dirty or hard for this girl! I try to raise my children in a loving, caring, compassionate way. Life is too short to be angry, greedy or jealous! I met my wonderful husband when I was 16 years old. I had to be put into a mental hospital for severe depression. I do not regret my decisions I made at that time; as without them, I never would have met the love of my life. He is always loving, forgiving and supporting of me. I often tell people I struck gold in finding him. My children are Brandon (17), Haley (10) and Jenna (7). I live for them, though I have to admit Brandon and I often will not see eye to eye. I'm sure it's just a teenager/parent thing and will pass in time. I love him unconditionally and I know he loves me too. Haley is my little worrier, always stressing over things she shouldn't. I just try to reassure her and guide her in prayer. She has many talents especially art and dance. Jenna, well let's see where should I start... "ha ha". She's a very sensitive, loving child but can also drive a person nuts. She always tells us she wants to grow up and help the poor. I truly believe she will continue to feel this way into adulthood. If I had to name one regret in my life, it would be that I did not attend college. I wish I did not always have to tell my children we cannot afford this or that. At least, I know my children are not spoiled that way. I will often go too long without a haircut or any other luxuries because the money is just not there. I can honestly say I do not remember the last time I bought myself any new clothes. I will say I am blessed to have my health, my family and a job. So many others cannot even say those things. Thank you for reading my bio, I wish you the best in life. May God bless you!
