 About Self
I am a 69 year-young grandmother of seven; two girls and five boys. I have four children - two natural, two step all of whom I consider to be my own. I have been married to my husband forty-one years (June 4, 1970). We live in a little community called Fircrest, Washington just a hop, skip and a jump from Tacoma, WA which is about 45 minutes from Seattle. My first love is Jesus Christ, who died on the cross at Calvary for my sins, that I might have eternal life in Heaven. My hobbies are writing, both in poetry and short stories. My short stories are about a little mischievous toad named Toadsetta; I love to sew, mostly for others; reading and going to the beach (my favorite place in the whole world). I especially want to make a difference to children and adults with my Toadsetta stories as they have a biblical object lesson with scripture at the end. The only one presently posted is merely an introduction to her.
