I Didn't Listen to My Priest


Do you know how nice it is to come home after a 13 hour day and have a present from Dr. Laura .... AMAZING!  As a podcast annual subscriber, thank you for the book, "Surviving a Shark Attack (on Land)". I've been a listener for 27 years now and hear a different version of my story every day.

I DID not choose wisely, and am now divorced after 30 years, but have 3 amazing kids. I married a boy who never became a man; he cheated through the whole marriage and now lives with Mommy.

I heard the story of the 16-year-old girl who had Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives crammed down her throat, but is now living a wonderful life.  I wish that was me. I enjoy my life, but just wish I had listened to you when I was 16. That was how old I was when I went on my first date with my ex-husband. At the alter, the priest even whispered to me, "You don't have to go through with this".  I thought since he was a priest, what did he know about choosing wisely.  Obviously he knew more than I did.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU AND God Bless you for everything you do. I listen to you on Sirius, the Internet and now my iPod when I exercise.

Luv ya, Dr. Laura.
