9. List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how
Yikes mike that's a hard one
1- my mother. She taught me that caring is beautiful and unconditional. If my mom loved you she loved you and nothing you said or did changed that
2- my father. He taught me that alcohol makes nasty people even meaner!
3- Alicia - she was the one I never wanted and one of the first people I pray for each night --- I count her as a blessing
4- Hubs - he taught me that good things are worth waiting for!! I loved him a long time before we even dated
5- Mimi baby - she taught me that there's NOTHING better than being greeted with an enthusiastic hello. Yup even when I met her in a store aisle OF A STORE I DROVE HER TO
6- smitty - she taught me that blood ain't nothin but DNA - she was as much my grandmother as the others. And as much a sister to Mimi as any blood could be
7- Ma - she taught me that love comes many different ways. My beautiful godmother has 7 kids and no time for crap but always time for me.
8- K - she taught me to purge...I learned far too well. K was a person I was ip with. Before that I had never purged... Probably shouldn't have asked, huh?
9- Mary - she taught me never to give up. Mary is in her 50s and fights anorexia every single day. She still believes she will recover, she believes I will too
10 -Laura - she taught me that friends can stick in through the crap! She also lets me ask any question which is a good "feature"
so who has influenced you? What'd you learn
