I am an older single Mom who lives in Nebraska which is the middle state of the United States. I love to write about my life, my past, my present and my future. I also love to write about my life experiences and my faith.
The goal of this blog is to encourage others. I want to share with other single parents that you really can make it, to help others through some of life’s most difficult storms. I want the person facing a divorce to know that there is a good life awaiting them on the other side. I want to encourage those battling an illness not to give up! I know what a tough time life can be at times. I have been there and done that in many situations. I have had many wonderful adventures in my journey around this big blue marble we know as home. I have survived surgeries, childbirth, adoption, a flooded basement, a large tornado, wind storms, blizzards, auto accidents, even an earthquake. I have survived marriage and divorce, the loss of all my family of origin; Dad, Mom, Sister and Brother. I have lived in Germany and Hong Kong, as well as the states of Nebraska, California, Alabama, Washington, Iowa, Texas, and Kansas. I have a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree and I still can’t find a job. But God has been good to me and faithful in keeping me alive and grounded! So grab a cup of tea or coffee and let’s spend a few minutes together.
Life is tough for most but we are not alone, even though we feel alone sometimes. There is always someone who has gone before us and dealt with what we are facing. We can encourage each other in our journey on this planet.
I remember in college, years ago, we were asked to write our own epitaph for our tombstone when we die. We were to sum up our whole life into one sentence or phrase. I think of this epitaph often as it really does identify me as a person. I roll with the punches and try not to stay down too often. Here it is, feel free to quote me:
