Since my husband of 12 years died from a 300' fall off a cliff while hiking on May 8, 2010, I have struggled in many ways. One of them is writing regularly. The other by far is learning who I am (who God wants me to be) without a spouse since I've felt ripped in half. It's a slow, bumpy process. I enjoy three cats (but not their fur) and fish. I love to read, write, hike, play Sudoku (addicted to it and Free Cell). My life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6. My 2013 meditation word is "abide." My 2014 word is "freedom."
