My love and passion for writing was apparent very early in my life. I started out with an admiration for poetry. It always amazed me that individual words with little meaning, when placed together, could create tremendous emotion. I have never been able to express myself well verbally, but with the written word I can speak from my heart.
When I was younger, and even as an adult, it became a habit to write a personal expression of poetry for my parents on holidays in place of a store bought card. It meant so much to me, as I watched tears flow from my mother’s eyes as she read the words. This told me she found the sincerity of my warmth and love in the words I so carefully wrote. My father’s eyes would light up and he would hug me and tell me how special it was to him that I gave him something from my heart. My parents were always supportive of my talent with words, giving tons of encouragement along the way. I’m extremely thankful to them.
I have two daughters, a wonderful husband and a much adored granddaughter that means the world to me. I have three step sons, a step daughter and five step grandchildren whom I love and adore. My life has been filled with much excitement along the way. I’ve experienced every emotion life has to offer, but most of my memories are filled with joy and happiness. I’ve truly been blessed.
The simple things in life are very pleasing and relaxing for me. Things like sitting on the front porch taking in God’s beauty and delight, and listening to the wonderful sounds of nature.
My favorite hobbies include, writing of course, sewing, reading, and working in the yard. I am very thankful for all of the blessings that God has placed in my life, and all of the wonderful things he has allowed me to be a part of. I definitely know, with no uncertainty, who guides my journey through life.
I believe the most important things in life are God, family, love, and closeness. I was always reminded as long as these things were present in my life; I had much to be thankful for.
