About me: well….where do I begin?
At this point in time, I guess I’d say I’m a mid-life crisis kind of Mom, trying to rediscover her passion for creative writing. Starting small with this blog and we’ll see where it leads. Furthermore, I’m 50-something, used to be 30-something, and wondering where the years have gone. Mother of two, absolutely fabulous children that make me proud beyond words. They are my life and entire reason for being. In fact, I’d even say that they saved me….in so many ways. After their beloved Dad passed away, we managed to help each other through the years of grief. Life eventually became brighter again, and I moved forward with remarriage to their wonderful and very supportive step-father. I work full time, have for over 35 years, and would really like to retire one day and work on my “book”. The one in my brain, that hasn’t had my undivided attention, and will hopefully spill out at sometime in the near future. Until that time, I’ll continue to plug away, one post at a time. Wish me luck!

  2. Hi Joyce, don’t know if you even remember me, Jo Carroll, was Bernie’s friend. I have read your blog, didn’t know about your mom, I am very sorry, she was a wonderful person, so full of love. I remember so many things about your family and when I pass your family home I think about you all and the days of yesteryear. I understand about losing your mom, I lost mine 13 years ago and it is still so hard. Keep writing, like you I always wanted to be a writer and after reading your blog you have me thinking. Keep writing and I will keep reading. Love and miss you Jo

    • Hi Jo, I was in a hurry when previously responding and it bothered me that I forgot to wish you my deepest condolences regarding the loss of your dear mother. I do remember her very well. She was a tremendous woman and such a gentle soul. I am very sorry for your loss and hope that time has helped lessen the pain. I can relate and understand how daily events trigger memories and sadness of wanting our mothers here. You’re in my prayers. Take good care. Joyce
