We are all on our own remarkable journey!

Whether it includes work, retirement, children, grandchildren, heartbreak, tremendous love, huge successes, or crushing defeats, it is a journey unique to each of us.  It informs and shapes us into what we are and continues to mold us into what we are to be.  Each experience is just another stitch in the fabulous quilt that tells the story of our lives.

Join me as I continue the journey, reflect on the past and enjoy the moment.
