A Thank you to all of you for your support and encouragement. You help me go on against terrible health problems so I will be here for my family.

The Value of Women

Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.
Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.
Sisters are there,
No matter how much time and how
Many miles are between them.
A girl friend is never farther away
Than needing her can reach.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself,
The women in your life
Will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on,
Praying for you, pulling for you,
Intervening on your behalf,
Awaiting with open arms at the Valleys' end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you...
Or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers, Grandmothers , aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family,
All bless our life!
The world wouldn't be the same without women, and neither would I.
When we began this adventure called Womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead.
Nor did we know how much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.
Thank you for being there when I need you!

About Me I am a loving friend, devoted mother, daughter and grandmother. My family means the world to me and my grandchildren are my life. I had a beloved pet, Murphy (cat) who passed away Jan 30/07 at 16 years old. We are not allowed to have a pet where we live now.
I have to live with constant pain due to health problems but try my best to rise above it. I'm interested in painting with acrylics and oils, and watercolour not so much, crocheting, crafting, writing, reading, embroidery and cyber penpals. Would love to find someone who has crewel work patterns. It seems to be a lost art. Painting and crafting helps me cope with my pain. Would love to correspond with others in similar situation.

Wild Fact About Me The wildest thing about me is that I am somewhat a computer geek. I even achieved certifications to prove it but my health forced me to quit work before I could put my skills to use. Not very wild, but certainly not expected from me.
My Philosophy Life is precious and not to be wasted. Our Creator wants us to face life and live it with gusto and joy. He encourages that in the Scriptures (Ecclesiastes 9:9-10; Deuteronomy 30:15-16). We must never turn our backs on life, but face the challenges with courage and by using our minds. When life is seen as a challenge that is good for us because we develop strength of character, the negatives do not grow so large that we become fearful.
What Gives Me Hope Knowing that there is a God who has a plan for my life and that my life is not a series of random events.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would do whatever was necessary to eliminate poverty and homelessness. Those who have much should have much demanded of them so we could wipe out hunger, poverty and homelessness in Canada and around the World. How can we expect great leaders to emerge if they are starving in rat infested slums or dropping out of school because hunger made it too hard to learn? How can our leaders be representative if they have only known wealth and privilege?
What/who changed my life and why The birth and death of my third child, Mandi, who died in 1987 at age 6. She had Spina Bifida and couldn't walk but she taught me so much about hope, optimism, meeting challenges, overcoming and never giving up. She was a remarkable child who beat all the predictions made at her birth and then some. She had an irresistible smile and happy personality and she turned everyone she met into a friend. I miss her terribly but I will forever be grateful for the impact she had on me and the whole family.

Those times when you need Him
