My 35 years have been blessed. I was raised in a good, stable Christ-centered home with parents who loved me unconditionally. Jeff and I have had some rough years- but those are behind us and we have definitely moved on to a wonderful place together. My children are amazing and they have taught me more than I could ever teach them. Even our incessant moving around has been a huge blessing, because it has caused me to remain a flexible person and I've learned much about relationships and how to maintain them over the years and miles. My family- Jeff's side and mine- are amazing people. All of them and I love them will all my heart- they've seen us through some rough times. My friends are a gift from the Lord. I am managing to keep in touch with my friends from all the way back to my childhood and God has used many of them in very special ways, especially over the last year to encourage and comfort me.
I am blessed and could ask for nothing more than what I've been given in this life.
