I am married to the boy/man that I had a crush on when I was 9 years old. In March, we will have been married for 40 years! Time sure flies when you're in love!
We have a beautiful daughter who will always be shorter than us! She was so very sure that she had reached the 5 foot mark that she went to the police department and asked them to make it official! Nope, full grown at 4'11". Always my little girl (I'm 5'6" and dad is 5'7") !

Nursing has given me so many riches...none of which are financial. I have held a beating heart in my hand, have been privileged to hold a child's hand when he passed on, have had the incredible joy of "catching" a baby when the delivery room doctor arrived a little too late, have literally saved lives, and have traveled the world! What other profession could offer so much?
I highly recommend the nursing profession to anyone. It may not be too late. I didn't start college until I was well over 30 and was nowhere near the oldest graduate in my class! Nor was I near the oldest person to join the USAF five years after I became a nurse. It's never too late for you to live your dream or to find your passion!
I am deeply saddened to say that my beloved husband of over 40 years passed away on December 16, 2013. I shall always love him and I miss him terribly. But I know that he is healed and in God's grace.
I'm adding this in March of 2015. MyMichael has been gone for sixteen months and I want to share my feelings with those of you who read my profile.
I am so blessed to be married to such a wonderful man. I'm even more blessed that he died when and how he did. MyMichael had emphysema and was on home hospice care. He was getting to the point where he was in pain. Emphysema is a horrible way to die, both for the patient and for the family who must see them suffer.
This is why I feel so blessed. On December 16, 2013, I was brushing my teeth when I heard MyMichael fall. I reached him within five seconds but he was already gone. He died instantly from a broken neck. God is so good. MyMichael didn't have to suffer anymore.
I will always love MyMichael and he will always be my husband. But I'm okay. My life is full and I'm happy. I know that we'll be together again in God's own time. MyMichael's and my son, Tim, was 21 years old when he died while serving in the Army in 1995. I know that Tim and Michael are together and watching over me and my little 😀 girl. God is good.
