Welcome to my place. I live in the ever weather changing mid-west. Hot one minute, freezing the next. Bone dry or soggy wet. Cloudy or blindingly sunny. Don’t get me wrong though, I do love the seasons. That’s the only change that is really easy for me. The rest of the changes take a lot of process.
We have two daughters, and seven grandchildren.
Our house has always been full of kids and animals. These days find just we two, unless the children are visiting, it’s just us.
We keep very busy. Each of us work with non-profits that we adore. We both have hobbies too. My hobbies are writing, taking photos, and reading. I also see myself being a soft place to land for those who are lost in the same jungle that I grew up in. There is always so much to learn!
My husband loves helping others, and is always looking for ways to serve, through his non-profit and around the community. We love to travel together to places both known and unknown. We call this list “Yours, mine and ours”. Works well for us. We are coming up on 42 years of marriage.
The difficulties my husband and I have come through have been in preparation for where I we find ourselves now. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” God has been the proof reader of this life that had only potential for a tragic end. He alone knew better.
Without Jesus and my dear patient husband, I could not be this far.
My hope is that I might help you to find the way to rewrite your own story.
Thanks for coming, and come back when you can!
