The Lord is my strength,
my shield from every danger.
I trust in him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart
is filled with joy. I burst out
in songs of thanksgiving.
Psalm 28:7

I just turned 48 
and am fussing with things like perimenopause. melodramatic

I have naturally curly hair.

But now I wear it straight, and I love it.

I'm short and I procrastinate.

I have glaucoma.

For over ten years now and probably longer.

Cozy Memories

(definitely be aware even your children should be tested for glaucoma)

 

I am currently writing a novel titled Sam Walker's Widow.
It is nearly finished.

 

I have always loved Mary Engelbreit.

(I keep this print handy when I need it, he he. LOL)

We have always home schooled.
(except for two long, awful months of all-day kindergarten)

Two have graduated, one to go.

My daughter, Molly, inherited my love for writing.
She has self-published the first two books in a four-book series.
A Pirate Daughter's Promise, (see sidebar)
Every Tear, the second book in the series.

I am currently editing A Captain’s Heart which will be published when that is accomplished. And Finding Faith will come after that.
