Who am I and why am I blogging in response to Blogging 101

open-book-981405_1920

Full of HOPE!

I can’t really explain how I ended up where I am today, but it is nothing short of a miracle. I was once very lost, I grew up in a tumultuous household, I had to pay my way through college, and somehow I did it.

But then, I made some really bad choices in life….but yet, I am now retired after an amazing career, I’m a grandmother, have been married 40 years and am so blessed to have a great relationship with my only child, a daughter and her husband. And now she has blessed us with two adorable grandsons who are the light of my life!

The reason I want to blog publicly is to hopefully help someone else who is struggling in life. I pray I can show someone else there is hope. Life can sometimes seem so hopeless, so messed up, but there is always hope.  And there is always a way to regain what was once lost. My life is proof of it!

There have been some very influential people placed in my life that helped me get through the tough times. I can only hope I could help someone else….

My new tagline is now LIFE, for Love Inspiration Freedom Encouragement. I never had a chance to do this at the time of the “assignment” but it finally came to me after jotted down characteristics I want to be known for….

My hope:

Praise to God for a Living Hope

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade–kept in heaven for you,
who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  1 Peter 1:3-6
