[quote=MarcelleBeavers] Here is my story and my song: This is what has made me a Survivor! Remembering all the times that we spent hidden away in that cold garage when papa would come home drunk and threaten to cut Mama's heart out and laugh while he did it. One of my first memories as a child being raised by my grandmother. This taught me how to protect myself from people who are supposed to love you. This taught me how to know when to not raise your voice and fight back but to get away from the situation that could escalate into danger. Daddy and Mother getting divorced when I was six months old and leaving me with Daddy's mother in a rooming house that she owned. Seldom calling or sending anything for my birthdays or Christmas. This taught me how to always remember my son and always let him know how much he is loved and appreciated whether near or far. This taught me to be a responsible parent to my own child. The first time my first husband reached across the car while we were going to the store and belted me with a right hook in the chin while my son cried. All the times that followed when he sat on me and shook me so hard that my head hurt, the times he threw me against the wall and kicked me. The last time when he held a gun to my head as I was leaving him for good in the middle of a cold February night. This taught me that it didn't matter if I wanted to make my marriage work for the sake of my son or religious beliefs or what anyone else thought. If I wanted to survive, I would have to escape this abuse not only for myself but also for my son. Sitting on the floor crying when I was going through all the bags of groceries that my Grandmother brought me from my friends 100 miles away because they had found out that we were in pretty much dire straits during this period of my first divorce. My grandmother had overheard my son as I had called her collect from the neighborhood grocery store when a woman passed by with a cart full of groceries and he exclaimed, "Look Mommy!!!! That lady has MEAT in her basket!!!" I could never ask anyone for anything. I always tried to manage on my own. I was so humbled to see what friends had done for me. I think that was the most touching and memorable moment of my lifetime because I had never thought that anyone would do such a thing for me. I realized that I truly mattered to others. A second marriage that was more a business partnership which taught me so much about the world of business. I owned, operated and did outside sales for our forklift tire shop in Houston. That marriage ended in divorce because of all the nights spent alone while he passed out drinking on the sofa. I learned that I was capable of doing anything I set my mind to in that marriage. I learned that there was more in life than just being taken care of. Sometimes you are more alone and lost with someone who can give you everything materially that you want than when you are on your own and content to just be happy with what you have already. Finally finding my husband now. Someone fifteen years older than myself. We started out with nothing thirty-four years ago and worked together to build a happy and comfortable life. Then so much stress in the last few years that nearly destroyed our marriage. Then I discovered SingSnap and found a world all my own to escape to. I had an angel who helped me through those rough times. Someone I grew spiritually dependent upon whom I had never met. He guided me softly and gently back into that safe place of my husband's arms. Along the way he taught me how to respect, honor, and cherish all those years I had with my husband through his own example of living. He reminded me that life is ever so fragile and that we all have a role to fill in our lives and that we have to honor that and cherish it. He taught me how much my husband really needed me, especially now in life. He also taught me how much I needed my husband. I learned that there are many many different kinds of love and that spiritual love is meant to be shared with one another and ever so respectful of each other's lives. Our friendship taught us both that when you truly love someone, their happiness is your happiness and your happiness and well-being is also theirs. This song always makes me realize how happy I am to be a survivor and to be alive and to be surrounded by all the angels in my life now! I finally learned what real love and life is all about. It's not just about ourselves, it's about all of us. I am so thankful for all those things in my life that led me to this place where I am now. I truly believe that God puts certain people into our lives at a certain time for a reason. I have truly been blessed in life! ~V~ Thank you Marcelle!!!! What an honor!

"Ain't it funny how some feelings you just can't deny, and you can't move on even though you try, ain't it strange when you're feeling things you shouldn't feel Oh, I wish this could be real... Ain't it funny how a moment could just change your life And you don't wanna face what's wrong or right Ain't it strange how fate can play a part In the story of your heart.... "
