I celebrate faith and family! Married now for 45 years, my husband and I have made homes in Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, California, and Indonesia. We have 3 sons, married to women who have become our daughters, plus 4 granddaughters. As a registered nurse, I worked as a pediatric nurse and taught childbirth education and mother/baby care classes. After our move back to the U.S. from Jakarta, Indonesia in 1992, I managed a geophysical consulting business with my husband. I have written poetry, short pieces, family story, and faith ponders for many years. I enjoy old rose and herb gardening, cooking with herbs, music, knitting and beading.! In 2006 due to rapidly deteriorating vision, I received 2 cornea transplants for which I am endlessly grateful.
