I have been writing for over 25 yrs.I've not written any short stories as of yet. I have written over 8oo poems. Most of them reflect events from my life or that of someone very close to me. There is alot of emotions tied up in my writtings. My dream is to some day publish a book.At this point it is just a dream. My Son keeps telling me to do as I preach to him and that is to follow my dreams. Go figure he really pays attention to me when I talk to him. (LOL).He is my world and my life. We have learned to totally trust one another and lean on one another for support,and our FAITH gets us to where we are today. Lord knows I don't know where I would be without my little man who is now in his mid teens.We'vebeen to hell and back with all the pain and sorrows in our life. Somehow we've mangage to weather the stromes of life on life's terms together.We were seperated for a short while durning some very tring times in our life.
My Son has been writing for about 4 yrs. now. I am amazed at the things that he writes and the feelings he puts into his poems for such a young person. He holds nothing back when it comes to putting his feelings on paper. He has showed some of his writings to his English teacher. She has encouraged him to summit some of his poems to a few different places. He has done so and has won a few awards for his creative writing skills.
A little about me: I enjoy the great out doors reading, writing,quilting and spending time with my some of my family. I say some only because the rest of them don't give out postive engery. They want to live in the past. My thoughts are I've lived the past once why in the hell would I want to waste time going back to places in my mind that were painfull. Oh I do visit the past of the good things from there. I have a lot of treasured memories stored there. Lots of my childhood being raised by my NANA & PAPA. Lord the values they taught me. And those priceless memories they gave me will stay with me to my last breath on earth before going to live with my creator.
I am very Blessed to still have NANA & PAPA with me today NANA is 99 yrs. young and PAPA is 102 and still shape as a tack.They have been my rock over the years and have saved my life twice over the years. Once you get to know me maybe i'll share more details of them saving my life.Not something to post for the world to read. However,I will say the frist time they saved my life was when I was a child of 9 and the second time when I was 23. At nine it was by the curl hand of a monster and at 23 they saved me from a path of self disruction.Talk about tough love I think they wrote the book on that one.However,I am greatful for all they have done in my life. There is not a day that goes by that I don't see them.
Personal life: High school graduate, and collage graduate as well. Bussiness owner. I was bless to have fallen in love twice however,I am also a widow twice over. God gave me the privilage to be a mom of three However, two of my yougens have gone home to live with the Lord. I could write a book on heartaches and pain and suffering. I do belive that all things hasppen in our life for a reason. Dispite all the pain and heartaches I've been there I do believe this is all a part of God's plan for the road map of my life.I learned a few years ago to stop asking God "WHY ME,WHY ALL THIS PAIN AND SUFFERING" I now try to find the lesson he is tring to teach me. I may be 50 but I still have a lot to learn in life.
