About the Author

My intention with this blog is to use my writing as a way to make sense of this twist in my life journey.  

I'm a partner...
with a wonderful man who has put up with me for more than 30 years. He says that he doesn't know what he did to deserve me. I tell him he must have been really good in his last life - or really bad. He's just cracks that smile of his and lets either comment pass. Unless he is across the room. He does run faster than me.
I'm a mom...
with three adult children  - the youngest still in college.  I'm finally done with high school. We all lived through it...barely. 

I'm a daughter...
With parents who are wise teachers and constant support - even when they need a little support themselves.

I've been a counselor and coach; a teacher and administrator; a volunteer and a business owner - not all at the same time although sometimes the lines were pretty blurred.

I don't really want to live in the fast lane. Country roads that meander to interesting places are much more to my taste - as long as I can get out of the car and take a walk on the glorious pathways that I find.

Priorities are not so straightforward anymore.  Perimenopause doesn’t help.
My life is full - with wonderful people and amazing opportunities and all of this is vying for my time and attention which is hard because I don't multitask like I used to.
And that’s where grace comes in – filling my life and reminding me to save some of it for myself.
