I have been married for 41 years to the man who is still the love of my life, Sandy. He retired in 2008. We love to travel together and spend as much time as life allows with our family. I love to decorate, entertain, cook and bake, garden, and paint. We have two children, a son and a daughter and three precious granddaughters. We are blessed to have a loving son-in-law, but we are saddened beyond description to have lost our beautiful daughter-in-law on December 23, 2010 following the emergency delivery of our newest granddaughter. In spite of our loss, I'm a blessed woman - my cup runneth over!
My house - I adore it. It's not very large by modern standards, it's 36 years old, and it is jam packed - but it represents US. We had our home built when we were married a year and a half - we were just kids. We moved in on December 22 and we did not have a stick of furniture - just a Christmas tree and a mattress on the floor. But we thought we had a castle. We've brought two babies home to our little house and now two little granddaughters have brought more joy and laughter to us and to it than we ever dreamed possible. During these days of difficult times in our country ANY home is a gift, but our home is a blessing which brings us much joy, because it is filled with love and joyous memories. I am so thankful for it!
