i actually said "no" to a planned event.... yow! thanks to shannon's advice to take control over my life- i was able to conjure up enough courage to tell a friend that i wouldn't be able to drive to her home tonight - 45 mins. away in the rain and falling temps. to look at the jewelry that i had no intention of buying with the money that i don't have. this is a start-- will i be able to assert myself when i don't have all the reasons that i did tonight?... tune in for that chapter.
i never have thought much "about me" so this is an interesting experience. i have simple likes. i love to watch people and animals. i enjoy reading and also teaching in various church callings. i have 6 children- 5 i have raised and the oldest i didn't know until he was 21(adoption situation). i loved being a mom to my kids and found it challenging and rewarding- especially since i see them now as adults.i like to draw,knit, cook, garden and spend time with different friends.my faith has always been an important part of my life and gotten me through the various challenges i have faced.
i have a little collectibles shop "red squirrel" that i totally love- my daughters convinced me to build this. it's been a creative outlet and an
opportunity to meet many new friends in the past 5 years- i love to travel- especially to visit my kids or friends.i would consider myself a creative person who enjoys doing things for others especially if they are in need. i have been blessed with good health and a good life.
