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.  

Through this blog, I invite you to share my journey past, present and looking to the future.  It began more than sixty years ago and continues to amaze and delight me.  I hope that we can share experiences, perhaps share advice, and enrich our lives through our common and sometimes not so common experiences.  

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