    END OF OUR ACQUAINTANCE Twenty years ago a

    Hardest Thing In My Life ...

    It's funny what you consider challenging. Making a marriage work - being willing to sacrifice everything to keep this afloat - that is what I considered challenging. Having your husband give you and your child up for drinking and drugs - that topped everything on my list...
