I've always loved Photobucketlooking at photographs and now I'm hooked on taking them. I just started a few months ago but it is addictive. Making memories for my kids and grandkids.


Knowledge is tastiest and most tender when
you marinate it in doubt.
Providence: Don't judge how much God loves you
by how much people love you.
Delusion: If you're unhappy, money won't
make you happpy..it will only make you
rich and unhappy.
Gifts: It is only through giving
that we truly acquire what is given.

First of all I want you to know I am not here to amass a lot of friends just to have the most of them. What good would that do, I couldn't/wouldn't have the time to get to know each one and really become friends..and that is what I'm here for good friends. I have made some dear precious friends from another site I have and followed them here. I hope to do the same here with you. So if you just want to add a number to your friends list I'm not interested. I would however love to make friends that feel the same as me.LET'S HAVE FUN and be there for each other when needed.
I am a widow of 7 years. Still have my rough days occasionally. I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee but call Texas home now I'm really quite boring I guess :-), I don't drink enough to say I do, don't smoke, don't party..Gosh what do I do, hadn't thought about it like that before. I follow the rules (and expect others to do the same) I work hard (and expect others to do the same) and love my family (and expect them to do the same)... but alas, I live in the real world...Oh well I'll need to ponder some more on that at a later date. I have 2 daughters and 7 grand children and 2 great grands who I adore. I am retired from the State of Texas. I was a nurse in a doctor's office for years. I'm honest, a good listener, a natural nurturer, love to laugh, love to flirt, enjoy being with friends..but you know, I also enjoy being alone, I like my own company :-) I love and honor the Savior of my soul. Here is a glimpse of some of my family pictures and of course my grandkids, lol.

Remember, happiness doesn't depend upon who
you are or what you have, it depends solely
upon what you think.
