Hi everyone!  Welcome to my page.  I am the last of eight children - the "Oops, she is a menopause baby." I have been married for 33 years to a wonderful man who is now retired from his full-time career as an Army National Guard Engineer officer. We have two great, adult kids. Our son, who is also in the Army National Guard and married to a beautiful girl, and our daughter, who is on her way to receiving her business management degree and is married to a wonderful man. I am a high school teacher and love my job.

I love to write and share my life, and I encourage others to do the same. 

Until a few years ago, I was used to taking care of house and kids alone for most of my marriage.  Being a military wife brings on a whole different way of marriage than I expected - some good, some not so good. It has been an interesting road, and I am extremely proud of my husband's service and all our armed forces and their work and sacrifice. 

I love to travel and I love to stay home.  New York City, Cancun, London, Scotland, and Eureka Springs, AR, are my favorite places to visit. Mainly I am a homebody, though.

I take comfort in and draw from my Christian faith.  I believe in loving others, forgiving, and second chances - all things I have needed in my life and will probably need again.

Family and friends are most important in my life.  Also important to me are our two mini-Dachshunds that are spoiled beyond belief - so much so that if I believed in reincarnation, I would want to be a dog in a home just like mine.
