I use to rescue cats and I have about 30 cats and 10 dogs. It is quite a venture....I love them all dearly, can't let them go....if I met someone who I knew would care for them I might be willing to adopt them long as I could keep in touch. The worse part is when one is heartbreaking....makes me wonder why I do this to myself. It would be wonderful to meet someone who felt the same way as I do about my pets.
I have 2 sons that live with me and a 6 year old there is always something going on.
I work with a unit leader in Augusta,GA. I like to get out and meet new people. I am going to publish a book this summer and I go to the family Y everyday....well almost everyday....haha. Folling the deaths of 3 family members in 1976 I have searched for the meaning of life. I knew from childhood there was much more than what I could see or was being told. The book that I am writing is about the murder of my mothers sister,husband and son. The experience has enlightened me to things outside of myself that I yearn to know,but being from the south..find no one to speak with about the churnings within my mind. If I can only find one who will open the door for me to visit for that I might come to know myself and my world a lot better.
