I am on a Journey. Would you like to come along? Sometimes it is lonely and I want the world to join me and see what I see. I’m 57 years young and the Mother of 2 sons and 1 daughter, 2 cats and 1 dog. Sounds simple enough! Well I will tell you about my journey and why I f eel it is important. I am an RN by profession, a care giver by nature. Life has given me many challenges to over come as many of you yourselves are quite familiar with. I became disabled at age 39 and was forced to leave my childhood dream which was nursing. Wow! But I was the care giver, now what? My journey was about to take a major turn. After my grief process (anger lasting way to long until acceptance) I needed to redefine who I was and what I was to do. You know the saying, watch out what you ask for. Well I begged God to write it on the wall for me and he answered when I received a phone call asking if I would be interested in adopting a child. Three weeks later I became a Mother for the first time…a beautiful baby boy was placed in my arms and I knew exactly what God had in store for me. My job was to continue being a care giver in the Greatest most Precious profession of all. I have since adopted 2 more children, both with special needs. As a Mother and child advocate I became more aware of the environment and what effect it would have on my children. I began looking much closer at how I lived. My journey started by simple recycling household trash and progressed to becoming an advocate for Mother Nature. My children are now 16, 12 and 11 years old and I want to help others to become more earth friendly in their daily living. My motto is “One Step at a Time” to helping becoming more earth friendly. My journey has been a gradual one, as this is how I have learned to live it. I think I have and still can make a difference and I believe each person can make a difference on this earth by starting “One Step at a Time”. Move forward and make a difference. It is easier than you think. Start your Journey because you are never too young or too old.
