Living where I do, during the time we live in, I feel an enourmous sense of gratitude. Grateful for my son, who blessed me with his birth at such a wonderful moment in my life; grateful to my ex-husband, who participates the best he can with both the little man and me; grateful that I walked into such a welcoming community.
Granted, it's not always been such a bed of flowers. Most often, my life developed my character. As in, "Oh, well if nothing else, it builds character." How much character does one woman need?
Apparently, I need lots of it.
where, as a single woman, living and working in a city while raising a small child, my interests run all over the place. i love a great red wine - who doesn't? i love baseball and the associated trash talk that goes with it. my bigges, and how food is processed. i would venture that this is due to the fact that i was raised two streets over from lettuce fields and haven't ever really left the feeling of living where the food is grown.
