I am a born-again
Christian, a mother of two children, one of which I lost, and a career
My one living child, a son, is married and the father of my only grandchild, beautiful Caitlyn, who is 10 years of age.
I have worked most of my adult life and recently retired from Alabama State Parks Division where I worked as an accountant at one of our beautiful State Park Lodge and Convention Centers located nearby
in adjacent Marshall County. I am, in fact, surrounded by several of our many State Parks:Lake Guntersville, Buck's Pocket (you read it right *GRIN*), and Cathedral Caverns are North of me; Desota is East of me, and Cheaha lies to the South. The mountains here are as pretty in the Springtime and Fall as any you will see. We have some beautiful gardens also. You will find those right here on Sand Mountain. Yup, we aren't the State that some may have painted us to be; we have a mighty lot for which we are thankful, and we are proud to be called Southerners!
I've been back "Home" now to this part of Alabama for a little more than 30 years. I returned due to a very traumatic event in my life. My parents, brothers, grandparents, and many, many relatives all lived here. Many have passed away now, including a daughter, my parents and a brother. I took an early retirement from the work force because of health problems and was very concerned about what I was then going to do. My son had now finished High School, college, married and on his own. All of you know we can stay busy forever with just everyday chores in the home, but that's not much fun! I have always been a very active person and like some really mind challenging things to do. Well, I found it!
The internet and
access to it became available here a few years back...I personally have
only been on for a little less than two years.... January 1999 to be exact.
I didn't get into building pages at that time however. I DID start
trying it in late April, 2000 (this year), and if you want to exercise
your thinking and learning faculties, just try it! I have found it
very interesting--so much so that I'd almost rather do it than eat!
And I "ain't seen nothing yet" because I have scads yet to try and learn!
I HAVE managed to get several pages going here....I hope you will peruse them and find something that interests you. If so, take a
second and leave me a note in my Guestbook telling me about it. I'd
like to know you've been blessed and inspired in some small way...it just
makes my day! You also might want to vote for my site or rate it;
please do! I add something new here almost daily, get involved in
yet another Christian ministry--I belong to several--and continue my studies
at the "University" here.
So come back to see me really soon.... and thanks for visiting with me in my Garden! God bless you!
