with Donna Bender

Season One
Episode Five

"Five people in a small house with one bathroom and when I look back I wonder how did we even function? Waiting on people to finish so we could get to where we had to go on time, you know?

Doing a dance outside the door.

  • Carrying traits of gardening and tidiness into her adult life
  • Planning her daughter’s wedding and how it turned into the most magical day of her life
  • Being able to share such a special moment with her ex-husband’s family without there being any residual tension from past events
