How do I begin to explain what this blog used to be? I blogged online for seven years under this domain name but then lost it all in a day when my blog was hacked. It contained literally thousands of pictures of my children growing up, me pouring my heart and energy into a gorgeous garden, and countless tales of defeat and victory. I have been heartbroken but not broken.
I am the mother of four grown children. For more than a dozen years I homeschooled them. My four sweet children, my daughter-in-law, and my grandchildren are truly the blessings from a failed marriage of 23 years.
We pick ourselves up, we forgive ourselves and everyone else, and we move on. Enough said.
My mother and my sister are two of the loves of my life. My current best friend in this world is my dear sweet Jason, guitar player extraordinaire, best friend, sweetheart, day-to-day companion in strumming, walking, shopping, creating, and dreaming. Who knew such a friend existed.
