Born and raised in Northwest Pennsylvania, I consider myself well blessed. My oldest child, though mentally challenged, is a happy and loving young man of 24. My youngest will be finishing kindergarten this year, as her sister heads off to the high school as a big seventh grader. My youngest son, although a lofty sophomore, will be there to show her the ropes. While managing my family and home, I am also a childcare provider for others and the financial secretary for my church. When I have a moment of free time you will find me reading, writing, or at my horse barn .
