Straight from the heart is always great prose . . .
I stand quietly while you do somersaults on the bed as you aren’t being naughty, you are just trying to get your out of sync body under control. I stand quietly by the toilet door every time you ne...

George is never ever a 'stick in the mud'. Methinks he's calling this one right. . . as usual.  Good episode.

Wonderful experience with the four adoptions I've made at the shelter. An outstanding staff who do an incredible job with such limited resources, conveying their caring and compassion. And I'm absolutely awed with the fine job that the Director does in keeping the community informed and educated about the status and needs of the animals in our community. Keep up the good work.

Best Mother's Day card I've ever seen and a reminder that whether or not we've been lucky to have been bound to our Mothers with blood ties and that we should give thanks for all those women who have graced us  by being the spiritual mothers in our lives.

A male rabbit who lays eggs? Really?? How're you going to explain that one to the kids? Just published this article which bares the details.

Love Ms. Bates' sense of humor. Nice to have her around. . .( for a few minutes, anyway.)
Story
Tagline
Sharon Turnbull :: Author and Webmistress
Introduction
 In her own words, Sharon is a Goddess, diva, legendary lady, mountain mamma, and wonderwoman of a bit more than 'a certain age' who, between agonizing bouts of questioning her personal worth, works hard at not taking anything 'too seriously', trying to evaluate all crises in terms of their future anecdotal value.

Sharon is particularly fond of gathering and crafting stories that teach, transform and inspire others, helping people see how needlessly complex and stressful our lives can become.

As an author and international lecturer in the field of health care and women's issues, she has shared her work with a gentle graciousness, enthusiasm and humility. She has an irreverent sense of humor and an innate sense of the absurd that occasionally makes an appearance in her work.

Currently Sharon occupies the lofty positions of senior partner/owner/indentured servant of Goddessgift.com, a website designed to celebrate and nurture the goddess in every woman.

Although she's managed successful careers as nurse, psychologist, university faculty member and administrator, author, and speaker, she still cannot carry a tune, throw/catch a ball, or stand on one foot for any length of time.

Following her retirement from university life, she devoted herself to the development of the popular Goddess Quiz, the first scientifically based personality assessment on the internet. With daughters Liz and Sarah, she formed the Goddess Path partnership and now 'manages' their four web sites.
 
Wife, sister and friend, mother of 2, stepmom of 3, alpha-mom (2 dogs, 1 cat) and grandmother of 10. Forgetful of birthdays. Learned to delegate/share responsibility for household and meals a few years ago. (Slow learner!)

Plays with watercolors and gourd art, seldom manages to throw anything away, is never bored, and believes we are all "spiritual beings just trying to be human" even though she can no longer remember who is the original author of those words.
