Most of the time on Join Up Dots I write the intros to the show, by researching many different resources to get a flavour of what the guest is all about.
And then every once in a while a guest comes along who basically writes their own intro, and this is what happened today
I checked her "about page" and saw the following, and thought wow how can I top that.....so in her own words
"In the past twelve years I have had to deal with more than a healthy helping of “are you kidding me?” moments.
In 2002, I hit rock bottom. It was so bad I lovingly refer to it as a year of “shock and awfulness.” That year my father died, my mother was in the hospital, semi-comatose from grief, and my husband of 22 years lost every penny of our money BEFORE running off to Arizona with his girlfriend, who just happened to be a former stripper.
That was just the beginning.
I spent the next decade struggling with loss and challenges on every front, from finances and family to health and career.
While there were many bounces up and down over the years, I have finally bounced back and it was well worth the effort. I’m now happily remarried, employed and have published my second book. I even have children on three continents and a granddaughter far too far away!!"
Now that is a movie in the making if I ever saw one.
So what is it about todays guest that has managed to find the strength and desire to pull herself back in such a spectacular way?
And why is her book called "My Pineapples Went To Houston"?? I can't wait for the reason behind that.
So let's not wait any longer, and start joining up dots with the one and only Lee Gaitan
