“Just a girl, two kids, one man. That is what is says in my information section on akaQA. I live in the present. Knowing that my past has made me the person I am today. Every hurtful word every scar or bruise has open my eyes to the kindness of strangers. Make-up and and a smile hid the pain. Those who chose to look deeper could see the stain of tears on my soul. I was raised in New England US. I grew up hard. Never knowing what it meant to be carefree. Learning that trust had to be earned and forgiveness is for myself not the world around me. Understanding that there would be a day that I would control my own fate. “You teach people how to treat you.” I don’t share my childhood memories with people. I believe that is changes ones perception of me. I have known kindness and compassion and try to emulate those inspiring traits in my comments to aka members. I feel the words that are kind and up lifting are words of wisdom. In turn I receive understanding and support from the forum. “If you are waiting for a sign that God wants you to go to Church… this is it.” I never met my biological father. All of my life I spoke to God as if he were sitting next to me (my heavenly father). Never knowing the bible or the stories in it. At age 21 I drove passed a sign on the highway that read… “If you are waiting on a sign that God wants you in Church… this is it.” That Sunday I was in the third pew from the back. That church taught of forgiveness and love for sinners and saints (we are all sinners). Although I may not be in church right now I KNOW that my Christian duty is to love and accept people as they are. My job is not to judge or condemn, but to comfort and care. I don’t wave a banner of faith on the akaqa forum. I am the only bible that some may read. I want my words to fall on open hearts. Hoping that one day someone will ask where I find such peace. “My heart, my soul, my everything.” My husband. He is my warm safe place. Together we have built not only a marriage but a friendship. We have been married 17 years this summer. I still cant help but smile when he walks into a room. I see my children grow happy and confidant, knowing that their parents will move heaven and Earth to make their future as bright as the stars. My family fills me with laughter and pride. I am just a girl, two kids: one man. I have found peace, love, and the childhood I never knew. I am carefree and undefined. I am Jenn.”
