Sometimes I feel guilty because I had a happy childhood. I try to use what I learned from an early age to benefit other people.
StepFather is sometimes a dirty word but I had the most wonderful Assistant Father in the world.
I got my sense of humor from him and many of my moral values. He insisted on the family having dinner together every night, bought groceries before paying bills to make sure we were never hungry, wore the same pair of shoes for 12 years because we needed them more.
