I’ve lived through many decades, some more tumultuous than others. As someone once said to me in a gym, “How cool, you lived through the ’60’s.” I was a teenager in the ’60’s and I got married in the ’70’s and that naturally changed my life. I had children in the ’80’s and was busy raising them in the 1980’s-1990’s.

I managed throughout my adults years to serve God in both volunteer positions in the Church as well as working in different roles in the Church. Now I write, attend Scripture classes, give retreats when asked and spend time in prayer. Jesus is never far from me. I call upon His Holy Name all the time.

This year is a big year for me. I will become a grandmother for the first time. And so 2018 will be an important milestone in my life. I am thankful for so much, but most especially for my deep faith, which has been an anchor in my life. And for all the other blessings too!
