"I had four children and was widowed at an early age, so I had to work two and three jobs to make ends meet. I'd get home from one job and have to head out again in the evening to the next one. When my daughter was a teenager, she got into trouble with some girls she was friends with, and I asked her, 'Why don't you tell me what's happening? Why are you so distant from me? Why can't we talk like we used to?' Her statement to me was, 'You're never here.' That cut me to the heart. I told her, 'You know why I'm not here. Somebody has to pay the bills. Somebody has to put food on the table and clothe you. I'm the only person supporting us. What do you expect from me?' I used to beat myself up over that, but it's what I had to do."
