I strive to be an expert word arranger. But until that happens I am content to be a dedicated and sometimes loving wife, a mother with world record reaching apron strings, a grandmother who shoots hoops and BB guns but doesn't bake cookies and a great-grandmother who doesn't get near enough kid hugging time.

I drink a pot of coffee a day. My cell phone is my link to the real world. My hobbies are collecting brew pub logo glasses, Starbucks gift cards and friends. I live in my Dad's time zone which is 15 minutes later than everyone else.

I am old and out dated but believe my old way of thinking has merit. Kindness can cure many problems and soothe souls. A hug can give warmth and compassion... as can words, when chosen well, foster healing instead of harm. I hope my words ultimately bring happiness.
