This book is about my “nobody” life. Many of the events written have happened to other people. It is really the way one handles these events that describes oneself. I try to stay in a happy mode most of the time. Wonderful and not-so-wonderful things have happened in my life as has in everyone. I still have those days when nothing helps my pity parties. We all have pity parties, but with the help of our dear friends and family, they can help us get past those days. When these people aren’t available, one needs to look to ourselves for that strength. After all, we actually are somebody.
Sherrill Lynn Derrenberger is my name, with the nickname of Sherry from my early childhood years, thanks to Dad. The name shown on the front is the name given me when born. This book has been wonderful therapy, not really understanding how, but it has been. A friend and mentor Iris Forrest, gave me confidence to follow through with it. Even if a manuscript doesn’t get published, one should try writing their thoughts. My life’s story hasn’t been that special, but only shows how I’ve dealt with the events in it. I am a nobody, but a somebody to those who love and understand me. We all need to love and understand ourselves.
