After my morning walk and chores, I sit down with my coffee and turn on my painting music to start my painting day. I usually paint with Enya, Native American and Instrumental music. However, my shuffle came on and I listened to the song “Until I Found You” by Stephen Sanchez. Well, I’ve not been lucky in the spouse category, but I thought about my children. I must give them kudos. My kids (Cassie, Alex, Kate, Luke) and their spouses (Andy, Josh, Mimi) have shown me so much love, support, and respect. They are strong loving individuals who provide for their children and have given their children love, respect and guidance. When we reach our 7th decade, we realize life is getting shorter and we don’t know whether we have a day, a decade or three, but the end does come into sight. I just want my children to know that my heart is full and I’m so very proud of them. And as siblings, they love each other, respect each other and communicate and celebrate together. There is nothing that could make me happier and so fulfilled in my life. Raising these four individuals has been my success in this life./per

05/18/2020: Hi to my fellow bloggers and/or readers!! I am 69 years of age. I have raised four lovely children as a single mother and those children have provided me with 8 lovely grandchildren, to date. I retired from nearly 30 years working in state government in March 2013. I worked mostly in management positions and as an investigator. As a child, I was affectionately called an “Air Force brat”. Our family lived in several countries and states before settling in central Illinois. In 1998, I moved to Arizona and call this my home. Since my retirement, I have worked in the solar industry and have developed a passion for trail hiking. I have returned back to some of my artsy roots and have made pottery, jewelry and painted. I am also writing and committing myself to developing my blog. I hope to bring comfort, motivation and inspiration to fellow bloggers and/or readers. I have a passion for life’s journey and hope this carries me for the next 30 years. Warm Regards.
