I am a retired Nurse, married since 1961,4 children,12 grandchildren,8 greatgrandchildren so far. Raised 8 children, and numerous foster children over my lifetime. Have a profound belief in God and know that He is my guide in every part of my life.

Many of my poems are memories, some feelings, most religious, and many written to a specific sentence or plot given me by someone else, such as 'Titanic' and 'Indianapolis' or 'Aviation'. Most of the Love poems were either for my husband or for a theme write. The friendship poems are for special people I have known.

So long ago, I came to You
Arms opened wide and let me in.
So young I was, so immature,
Not knowing then what would begin.
Back then, I thought I knew it all,
