Someone asked me what I was trying to accomplish with this page. Well, I dunno. I guess I just though this would be a neat way to express who and what I am. I have taken a lot of grief over the years about being a Stay-At-Home Mom. They ask, 'But what about YOU?'. You might as well ask an artist or a brick mason if he or she is not feeling secondary to his or her paints, bricks, mortar or canvas. A lot of people find great reward in a career in the outside world, I WAS one of those people. I have chosen to be what I am not as an addition to some sort of personal roster or resume to say in the end 'I have done it all'. I do not see this as a personal challenge. I have took on this very serious and difficult commitment with a great deal of consideration first. Some say being a parent is SO EASY. Well reproducing the human species for many is not so tough but that has little to do with parenting. Changing diapers, fixing lunches, doing the laundry though a bit taxing at times is still not parenting. Parenting is what is written between the lines. The fine nuances that help a human child become a 'human being'. I find my reward in the smiles on my children's faces, their ups and downs, accomplishments and failures. I see success when they grow not just in body but in mind and spirit. My reward is not a monetary income, not a job title , not a new car or a bigger house in a finer neighborhood. My reward is a better ME. I owe it all to my children. They give me more each day than any payroll job ever could. I know that when they reach adulthood I may be needed at times for 'fine tuning' but that the end product will be 3 wonderful human beings who exist to better the world they live in just by being who they are. Here on these pages are just a few of the things I have learned and enjoyed along the way. This, like life is a never finished, never perfect  project.

I have removed my e-mail address because there are so many people now sending me SPAM. (unwanted unsolicited mass mailings of 'junk' mail) Though they profess that what they are doing is what the First Amendment gives them the freedom to do they send this mail anonymously and behind a veil of forged names and isp addresses. There has been NO ruling saying that SPAM in any form is acceptable. From no court in the land is there a decree that professes that SPAM is good and proper. If you send this garbage you know I am telling the truth. If you receive this trash unwillingly be sure to find the ISP of it's origin and forward this garbage to them . To open the  spammers cowardly veils of deceipt opt for 'Full' not abbreviated headers on your e-mail program,  Use such sites as either by subscription or by their FREE Host search and enter the SENDERS IP address numbers. They will give you the correct name and e-mail address where to forward the UN-ALTERED letter. DO NOT add any comments to the letter or the subjest line, that only slows things down. The ISP's hate SPAMMERS as much as you do. These people are invading your e-mail, your computer, your home with their unwanted and often fraudulant claims, offers, and stories. Like any other invader into your personal life they need and deserve to be evicted and reported . This is my personal opinion based on what I have experienced, researched and believe to be truth  If you wish to read what ISP's  have to say about SPAM go here.
