About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 33 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired eleven years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John (and daughter in law, Heather) and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia, Haley, and Isaac, who is due on June 10th, all blessings from God. We have four cats, Selbi, aka Big Kitty, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
