Introduction I am the mother of three children from my womb and two children from my heart, mother-in-law to those who love these children, and grammy to the little ones who have come by way of the combination of the above. I will turn 50 in this year that is 2011, and I run with arms open wide, embracing all that is coming my way. My husband is my rock, my parents are my anchor, my sister is my biggest cheerleader, and my brothers are my defenders. In-laws love me selflessly. I have been blessed to be welcomed into the family of my husband's first wife, who died tragically...leaving such an incredible influence...and am thankful for our Heavenly Father who brings us into relationship with more loved ones than we could ever have dreamed possible. He makes room in our hearts to love all that meet us at this divinely appointed crossroad.
Interests Needlepoint, knitting, sipping hot tea, books from the turn of the century...and charming old children's books, hydrangeas, baking, family, and playing with grandchildren.
Favorite Movies Cranford, Miss Potter, Sense and Sensibility, Little Women...ongoing
Favorite Books Easier to list favorite authors: Kate Douglas Wiggins, Gene Stratton Porter, Beatrix Potter, Tasha Tudor, ...too many to list and of course, The Bible
