Wow! I can't believe it's been since 2017 since I've posted anything on this blog. My husband and I are fairly private people so I'm not one to feel I have to share all aspects of our lives. Suffice it to say, I'm getting back into recording some of my thoughts and musings.
Events: My last granddaughter was born on January 14, 2018. My dad passed away on June 20, 2022. My mom broke both of her hips, has dementia, and had to be put into a nursing home. 😭 My first great-grandson was born on November 8, 2023. My second great-grandson is due at the beginning of March this year. I retired in August 2023. Yeah, so there are some really important events that I haven't written about.
I'm embarking on a new journey with a part-time job for a local college and am really excited about it. I love being retired but I miss being around people and using my skillset.
I've been listening to the Bible in a year podcast. I am reminded of the verses in Mark 3:21-22 where Jesus says, "A kingdom at war with itself will collapse. A home divided against itself is doomed." Powerful words that I wish our country would heed at the present time.
This is the first year in many that I haven't attended TCEA and I'm already missing the collaborations, excitement, and learning that takes place at that awesome conference. Being a TCEA board member was one of the greatest professional achievements of my career and I'm grateful for that special era.
