Giving thanks for my granddaughters, who are becoming beautiful young women, warms my heart. I enjoyed their infanthood, toddlerhood and so many stages of their young lives. I treasure so many memories of our special times together. But as I see their personalities and talents develop, it’s rewarding to be able to appreciate the unique gifts they are to the world. Grandparenthood is the best. Without the day-to-day struggles and irritations, grandparents can take the long view and have faith and hope for their future and offer unconditional love. I am very grateful that I can be an integral part of my granddaughters’ lives.

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
