I have often wondered about Sarge as his knowledge seems a bit eclectic. It was good to finally read about your history and interests, but I do wish life had been easier on you. It sounds like you learned from your past, however, and will not pass it on - good for you. I have tried to do the same myself, keeping the good parts and discarding the rest. I hope your current challenges are well met and you push through them as you have so many other obstacles.
Good job Brenda, I am looking forward to many more interviews from you.

Hey, Sarge, it's good to see you in the spotlight! Love the baby pic in the drill sergeant's hat. Rolling on the floor laughing
The garden looks great, as does Mr. Peepers in front of his condo. Did he ever get lady friends?
I didn't know you were going to N'awlins, my hometown. Glad you enjoyed it! Y'all sure deserved that vacation with everything you've all been through.
You're in my prayers, esp. with the new medical issue.
Bless you for sharing your story with your cubits family. I didn't know you had it so rough growing up. You deserve all good things.

Howdy, Sarge!! Good to see you! I am always happy to learn more about our Cubits friends, and especially so to read about you!

I love your desire and ability to overcome hardships. Congratulations, dear man, on creating a happy home life for your family.

They say that our experiences in life all come together to mold us into the person we are today. I totally agree. And you seem to have turned out to be an honorable man. Good for you, Sarge!

Brenda, I'm so glad you chose Sarge to be your first guest in the Spotlight. Thank you! I think you both did a great job!

Hi Sarge, prayers going out for this latest test, and lets hope it's a small problem.

Those two little boys, long gone, got a hug from me. But, you did as Lance said, discarded the bad and kept the good. You have three beautiful girls and a special sassy rooster :o) Life is good now!

I am proud to be your friend!


Brenda, you chose a good subject and did a nice job! :o)

We have crossed paths many times , just as I have with many folks here on Cubits. I am sure If my life had been different , I would not be who I am today good or bad I have been blessed to survive by the grace of God . as many before me have mumbled the words “This too shall pass” and so shall the unspoken medical situation that has risen.

Miss Woods,

Hello my friend we have spoken many times as well . like me you too have the ability to adapt and overcome many of life’s situations and our life makes us who we are . it is what we choose to do with it that gives us the ability to help others . Bless you my friend.

Hello Miss Nap,

It seems I finally gave in and wrote a bit of myself for others to see while avoiding most that asked for my story, You did task a dear friend (Miss Zany ) with the hardest story to obtain! My hope is it will give others the ability to adapt and overcome their life situations as they face them and know they too can survive and be happy in the end.

Miss Vicki,

Thank you for your kind words , God has blessed me many times and still does today.

Hello Maridell,

Bless you and thank you for your support.

Hello Sally my friend ,

You are correct “the two boys are long gone.” We did not last long once our family was only the two of us, However, we did survive and did the best that we could to hold on to each other . and that we have done even though we are miles apart we seem to know when the other one needs something and we call each other. Yes Life is good! Due to the good Lord above we have lived through it all. Thank you for the Prayers and support.

Hello Miss Zany,

I should not or would not be in the spot light if any other would have asked many had tried to get me to share more about my life . we have spoken many times and you have been a very good friend and still are today many of life’s blessing are not measurable by the monetary worth, but how someone so special can enter your life. Thank you , My Friend you did an Awesome job with my life story. You are a blessing to me and I will never forget that . I too will fight for life as new challenges are revealed to me in the days , weeks, and years to come .

Do as you yet harm no one !

Bless you all

Much Love

Sarge, your story touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes too. You are a remarkable man and I'm so sorry that you had such a horrible start to life. What you've accomplished is amazing. Hugs to you, your wonderful wife and family, and praying that God keeps you all in his care, especially with your medical problem.
