My Unmarked Road

Writing the book, Here We Go Joe has given me an opportunity to push past my fears and walk down an unmarked road. Even the obstacles, challenges, and detours this road has laid out before me have been worth traveling.

A time of rediscovering, digging deeper into my inner soul. Allowing life to take on a brand new dimension. Before retirement I was enclosed inside four walls of a classroom. Now, I am free to discover who I am through God’s grace and mercy.

Of all the discoveries that have been made, the people I have met and befriended make the journey worthwhile. They are like gifts from heaven. Marked to travel the road with me.

My excitement grows every day at the prospect of others reading my story and finding their own within the pages of the book. Dementia can be such a lonely place for the caregivers. These unsung heroes rarely receive acknowledgement for the sacrifices made on a daily basis.

Hopefully, my personal experience will allow others dealing with dementia or Alzheimer’s to know that they are not alone. And if they could just look intently into their own journey, the people that are marked to travel with them will be exposed like a treasure in a rough.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
