Hello! Glad you stopped by – really! I started this blog in order to get my thoughts down in writing as I wander my way thru a very intense personal journey. I have been thru hell and back in my life and I finally came around to the realization that I needed to seek a closer relationship with God. I’ve always had one, but not a deep, life-changing one.
I feel like I wasted so much of my life, just barely getting by – while watching who seem to have it all. They seem happy and content. Don’t misunderstand me….I KNOW we all have problems and trials in our lives. No question. But they seem so blessed. And I wanted that.
I am a divorced gal with 2 kids. My beautiful daughter is now 26 years old, married to a fabulous guy and they have a 3-year old daughter and a 1-year old son. I also have a 13 year old son at home. And yes, I had him late – at age 41, thanks for asking. No, he was not an “uh-oh”. Needless to say, my life is never boring! LOL
God and my family are the center of my world. I value trust and honest, open communication above everything else. I am the type of person who will give you the shirt off my back until you deceive me. If you do that, I will forgive you – but it will never be the same. Not sure if that is a good thing or not…..but I intend to find out on this here journey of mine.
Have any questions? Comments? Feel free to speak up — but please, don’t trash me or my ideas. I am ever-changing and growing as God sees fit. I may not have the same feelings, opinions, ideas that I had just a few years, months, weeks or even days ago. Don’t judge – it’s not your place, honestly.
I am an Operations Manager for a commercial real estate firm. My background though has always been in Human Resources prior to my current job – I suppose that is because I am very much a people person. I enjoy people. I thrive on making others smile and/or helping to resolve issues. Bad part of that is that I tend to forget to take care of myself in the meantime. Again, something I am SLOWLY trying to get a handle on.
I have also been in the insurance field (life, health, auto, property), in medical claims processing, warehousing and retail. So as you can see, I am a well-rounded individual with a lot of ‘been there, done that’ experience.
My on-again, off-again desire is to speak and/or train others about God. Don’t ask me why – as I’m a pretty quiet person for the most part. But it seems to be a growing ember within me and if that is where God leads me, then so be it.
And the rest of my story and who I am? Well, come along with me and lets find out!
