In the past couple of years since I retired from teaching, I found myself lost. Then I brought Carl home and my whole perspective towards life has changed. Carl has brought lots of challenges into our lives but also lots of joy. He and his sister Bee are the inspiration behind my blog.
Just a little bit about me. I am a wife, mother, sister, grandmother of four, tennis player. dog lover, but most importantly a child of God.
I wrote my first book, Here We Go Joe, a little over a year ago. I was inspired to write this book after spending the last 18 months assisting my husband and sister-in-law with the emotional decision of moving my father in law Joe from his home in South Carolina to an assisted living community. I truly hope this story of my experience with Joe can assist other families going through the devastating effects of dementia. You can purchase this book on Amazon.
I am currently working on two children’s books that I hope to publish in the near future. One of the books, Seasons at the Bus Stop is about a boy who struggles with friendships and with the help of his dog Bee, learns to make a friend. My second book, Broccoli Trees is about a little boy who has trouble paying attention in school and how he is able to overcome his difficulties through changing what he eats and exercises. I am excited about both books and believe they each have an important message to share.
