Not to be misled

Not to be misled.
I have written about and with my husband in mind nine times for the world to see. I share my life in bits and pieces from as far back as I can remember including things that have never happened. Dreams have come to life on paper and words just spring into stories. I work with all kinds of patients, yes patients who share their lives with me and reasons why they do what they do.
My husband is everything to me and I am as much to him. Our story is told poem by poem or so I tried. Written for and about our actual lives is as follows:
1. Rescued
2. He Whispered
3. My Fantasy, My Husband
4. Together As One
5. Together We Laugh
6. Doc
7. My Husband
8. When I’m Gone
9. Friendship

My life has had its up’s and down’s, with the death of my baby girl now an angel above! My ex-husband taking my boys to Alaska, which to me was a world away. I being a high school dropout and having never worked had a long road ahead of me. I have never blamed anyone other than myself and have never spoken ill of any. 
Yes, times of joy came my way but most were hard and depressing. My husband, yes I met the man of my dreams so fairy tales do come true. Has loved me in spite of all the up’s and downs! So when you see a writing that seems so sad and lonely or of one who is lost and alone; it is not me or my life! Thank you to all my friends who have cared about me and care enough to show their support. There have been times in my life that friends like you kept me going! God Bless You All.

    Thank you, my life is sort of out there now and I wanted to make sure no one thought I had a terrible life or that I was sad and lonely because of what and how I write at times. Thanks for the support my friend.
