By the Numbers……

I was always a solid student; I had no choice. My parents were teachers and it was the expectation. Despite my best efforts my GPA was always an 88. If I was to grade my life- my GPA will remain the same. Two divorces -65. A masters degree obtained with a two year old chasing me as I typed my thesis- 90. An investment portfolio and a savings account -80. A kind son who is educated, grounded and grateful – 90. A mistrust of others and a lifestyle of isolation – 65. A few dear friends that I can call in case of emergency- 90. Travel experiences which include Europe, Canada, California, Florida, Pennsylvania,South Carolina and Mississippi- 80. A dislike of criticism and dark intentions – 70 A quiet, healthy lifestyle and regular exercise routine- 85. A daily practice of reflection and writing – 80. A hatred for ex husbands and those who have abused my good nature- 65. An anger with myself for what I have done and what I have not- 70.
