I count my BLESSINGS everyday!
I was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. As the daughter of a trucker driver, I am a girl at heart from the Midwest. As a child, I lived in Missouri, South Dakota and Iowa and found the love of travel. I now find my home in Indiana and spend the winters in Florida.
I have been a teacher, speaker, an insurance agent, manager and trainer, a corporate executive and trainer, and most importantly full-time caregiver.
As the wife of a Vietnam Veteran and the wife of a CEO and President of his own Corporation, I have had to wear many different hats in my lifetime.
I enjoy traveling, I enjoy writing, quilting, and crafts, baking and creating. I have enjoyed the art writing for many years. Although I have only published a cookbook, and a few poems. I love POETRY! Reading, Writing it and Discussing it. I love to travel and meet new people. I am thankful to be a Christian. My faith has brought me through many difficult times and the loss of important people in my life as I learn life lessons. God has led me to learn lessons from many different people in my life. I look for the GOD things in my life to keep me focused. I count my BLESSINGS everyday.
