I am a card-carrying member of the “Baby Boomer” generation. The generation of perpetual discontent.
My father was at Pearl Harbor and fought in the Korean war. I was born somewhere in between the two.
No, I did not attend Woodstock. I’ve always been a late bloomer; more out of fear than anything else.
I am a mother to five grown children, two sons and three daughters, who I love with all my heart. I gave birth to two and I chose to be a mother to the other three. I am mother-in-law to three son-in-loves and one daughter-in-love. I am grandmother to eleven of the most beautiful, talented, intelligent grandchildren in all the world. Of course I love them with all my heart . . . maybe even a little more than I do their parents, since I didn’t raise them, and I get to spoil them and send them home.
I am a writer of inspirational fiction including my latest yet-to-be published works Flames of Vengeance and Wind Rider.
So, why did I pick the title for my blog “A Novel Prospective : From the Mountain Top”?
I’ve existed on this planet for 65 years. I’ve been married several times; divorced twice; widowed; seen my children through many heartaches including teen pregnancy; car wrecks; drug addiction; breakups and divorce. I’ve seen them through the beautiful, also tear-filled moments, of high school graduation, college graduation, weddings and births. I’ve experienced joy from the highest heights and grief from deepest despair. I spent over 45 years employed in corporate America sacrificing hours of my time and my soul to various employers. In February 2011 I was able to retire and pursue my passion of writing for The Lord.
I have reached my “Mountain Top”. Now, I hope to bring a bit of wisdom, encouragement and laughter to my fellow Women of Wisdom over 60.
So come along and let’s see what Granny has to say about . . .
Blessings to all who visit here.
