I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 49 years. We have two children, a son and a daughter, now grown with children of their own (we have four grandchildren and a granddaughter-in-law). I now spend a lot of my time with my hobbies (art and scrapbooking), as well as church activities. My undergraduate degree is from Southwest Baptist University (MO), and my Master of Education degree is from Drury University (MO). Before retirement, as a public educator, I taught HS social studies and Eng, Kg, 5th gr, college Eng, college educ courses, and Gifted. I also worked for IBM K-12 Education, as a national product specialist. I taught private piano for many years.
I love: Jesus Christ, my Redeemer and Master; my husband; my children; my special daughter-in-law; my four grandchildren and my new granddaughter-in-law, each of whom is very special in unique ways; my extended family; my church; my friends; my doggie; my life.
I like: my hobbies; puppies; teddy bears; coffee; spring days; autumn days; living in the woods; cooking; traveling with my husband; playing piano.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
--Proverbs 31:25-28 (NIV)
ABOUT MY BLOG
Synonyms for “Sentiment” include: feeling, emotion, response, reaction, attitude, opinion, outlook. Those words describe my postings here. Randomly, I record thoughts that are on my mind at a particular point in time. As is obvious, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking, “what shall I blog about today?” My blog reveals a "thumbnail" picture of who I am and what I believe, but certainly does not represent an in-depth picture of me. My most enjoyable hobbies are multi-media art and scrapbooking. Here I share many (not all) of my projects, and I share a layout now and again. (I scrapbook all photos I take, fill 2-3 albums -12x12-to capacity every year, so I share only a sample.)
