I Am Who I Am

Welcome to my blog. 

This blog is a mixture of old and new. It has plenty of old content since I’ve been blogging for quite a number of years but I have decided after the last few years of being away to come back new and different.

The last three or four years has been dark and full of turmoil. I was taking care of my sick husband, then he died unexpectedly. While I was dealing with that, Covid came and devoured the world in it’s own dark cloud. After almost three years of dark, gloom and despair and lots of talks with a few friends, I decided to pull myself and as many readers as I could out of the dark and into more light. 

The new direction for my blog will be all things positive or as my new blog title says…..Life, Love and Strength. We are all going through some kind of struggles, some kind of strife and so I wanted to oversee a blog of light. I decided to blog about how strong people can be, how light and love can be a guiding light in the darkness.

As for the worlds woes, well they won’t reach this blog. 

I won’t talk about politics, religion or Covid and vaccinations. So much vitrol is already being discussed about these things, this blog is going to be a refuge from this. A place you can relax, smile and let your worries rest for another time. 

So, come join me and others while we walk on the lighter, brighter side of life!

 

Here is a brief biography……

I live in Canada but am originally from the states. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and spent more than twenty years in Texas. I’ve always loved to read and write stories. If my head wasn’t buried in a book reading, it was buried in notebooks, writing. I have a fascination with the written word. I’ve always wanted to write a book and now that I have, (I’ve written two!) I’m more in love with books than ever. For this part of my life I live in Alberta, Canada with memories of my late husband, two old cats and my own furry dog sidekick, Sam. The cats and dog are alive, in case that wasn’t clear. 😉

  1. An Alberta writer! wow. so am I – that is, I was until I moved back to Switzerland where I’ve lived twice before. But I’m still an Alberta girl inside. Look forward to reading more of your writing.

    1. Thank you so much for nominating me for this. I’ve been doing this blog for a long time now and at first I accepted awards every time but now I’m letting some of the younger blogs get the glory. Doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate it! 🙂
