Writing is my passion! I'm not sure I have anything to say that interests anyone else, but I sure love trying! I've been writing all my life... stories, poems, whatever strikes my fancy. I have been married to the same man for more years than I'm ready to admit here. We have children and  grandchildren and are still happily married. I'm very thankful for my many blessings!

I just found your blog through a friend, Peggy. I'm glad I did. You have some beautiful stories here!

Just found this and it is wonderful. Your sweet Chase takes after you I think. I will be dropping back by more often. I too was a writer. I worked for almost 20 years as a reporter for our home town weekly. Mostly news stories, but ever once in a while something I really wanted to share. Keep up the good work.

Thanks so much, Sharon, for your nice comments. Yes, I like to think Chase inherited my love for writing. Glad to know you are a writer, too. Please do come back often. I appreciate everyone who reads my blog, and it's even better when they like it!

I found your blog through your comment on All Things Girl. I thought you'd want to know. I enjoyed reading your posts. I am a beginning writer hoping to be published. I am going to post as anonymous so I don't promote myself through your blog.
