About Me

I'm a forty something mother of two girls ages 17 and 11. I enjoy knitting and figuring skating. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 7 and I'm still "figuring out knitting!"

Now, the not so fun.
I have lost a special person in my life. This last week my FIL took a turn for the worse and sadly, passed away on Monday. Our family is doing well thanks in large part to the Peace of our Lord. I keep telling myself that my FIL is in a better place now . . .I have to think he must be whole in body, if you really have a body in heaven, and that he is watching over us. I know that he must be looking out for DD#1's Volleyball team. They have won both their matches since his passing. He is our families guardian angel now. Rest in Peace, Grandpa. We will miss you.
