She had gone shopping at noon. This episode seemed to crystalize my decision to end this marriage of 21 years. Sure, a lot of folk’s lives were changed and influenced by our work, but the good part of the marriage seemed to be that we had raised her 3 children who were safe and still call me daddy.

She was such a gifted charismatic speaker which took us to over 10 countries, 40 states as well as many times on national inspirational television programs. It was a successful organization and a great marriage for the first 12 years.I believe the beginning of the end was when we had a large church in Las Vegas, a men’s home, boy’s home and a training center.

As administrator, I worked very hard to keep the pressure off of her, but after some time, I needed a break. I flew to Texas to meet some friends for a fishing trip.After a long day of tremendous fishing, I called home and learned that my wife had run away with an Elvis impersonator from our men’s drug rehab home.

I flew home immediately.This is when things really took a severe turn in my life. After several weeks, they wound up in Reno (where her dad and brothers lived).She took an overdose of drugs at the MGM Grand hotel. The guy she was with called her daughter and she called me. Couple of days later, she was taken to Oklahoma where she wound up in a psychiatric ward.After her release, I took her back into my life and spent the next 9 years trying to put humpty dumpty back together again. Her psychiatrist diagnosed her illness as Bi-polar Manic Depression. I ask him if this is what caused her to run away and do what she had done with that man.

His only answer was that while it could have inspired the events, it was still her own decision.He prescribed her medication and told us how important it is for her to take timely and correctly. She eventually had many doctors and began abusing prescriptions as well as not following her original psychiatrist’s orders.These post-Vegas events took us to places you just don’t want to personally visit.I found a large chair in the foyer and with eyes closed and not really concerned with anyone else, suddenly it just came out of me, ENOUGH, I’M DONE!

I felt as if I had just wasted 9 of my prime years. The only bright light seemed to be the children. They were both raised and safe. How did I let myself get here?Then, I had the idea about writing a book!My writing inspired my telling about “How I got to where I was.” All the way back to my childhood. The positive spiritual influences from Mom’s side, to the negative influences from my father’s side. His lineage included bank robbers, brawlers, carousers, preachers, fighters and inmates. He didn’t have a lot of positive input from his father (3/4 Choctaw) or his father’s father.In this marriage, I learned that while you may be able to influence, you cannot control the choices of others.The words just seemed to flow from that deep hidden place we are all familiar with.

Memories dating back to when I was a boy trying to grow up in a hard environment. A lot of colorful influences from both sides of the family.Dad was gone a lot and always seemed angry with me when home. We moved constantly and many times I had to prove myself as the new kid in school by fighting my way for their acceptance. At 17, I joined the Marines during the hottest part of that Viet Nam war.My first marriage ended after I started a very successful business. I found myself running away to different Mexico border towns where I got into many dangerous situations constantly searching for a way to ease the heartache.
