I am a wife, mother and now a grandmother!!! So exciting. I love life, people, and new places! I love to cook, travel, meet new people, work, faith and FAMILY!

I had four kids in college, although one just graduated. Three of my children are married. Two have children and one is pregnant.

Life is hard, but good. Sometimes I just need a break and don't have the money to do it since there are never ending bills for college, kids in college, home, cars, ever rising insurance costs, medical mostly for my husband who has massive pharmaceutical bills each month due to heart medicine he has to take for his stints in his heart. My youngest needs a car and we do not have the funds to get it for her. She is trying to get a job while going to school, but the car she shares with her brother is always being used by my daughter in law and her new baby.

Just the opportunity to take a vacation from all this would be a God sent. We love God and have a strong faith that all is for our good and life is good and will get better. It is always a process of difficulties and working together as a family to get through life's challenges.

Having a short break from all of this would really help us to recharge to face all our challenges and to help our children know that it is ALWAYS worth working hard and NOT ever giving up. And to love and serve those around you. Someone, you never know who, may be there to help and lift you!
