Born and raised in Mariposa, CA, residing in Atwater, CA for over three decades. I’m married to my dear husband and soulmate for nearly 40 years, Ron Porter. We made a giant life-changing decision in 2017 when we packed it all up and moved to a small Greek community on the west coast of Florida. Every day is adventure, let me tell you!
We have two cats, Tobey, and Morgan. We are avid cat lovers and are dedicated to making sure they are as spoiled as they can possibly be. Cats are one of my greatest passions, and we have many stories to tell.
My hobbies are writing, reading, sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, movies, music, food, making people laugh, and enjoying life. I love to create things with my hands, so they are usually very busy, even while I may be doing something else.
I have had a vast career in the administrative/clerical area working in commercial and private insurance, superior court probation, civil service, the military airplane industry, public education, welfare, and self-employment in website development and design and desktop publishing.
There is not a day that goes by when I am not thanking my Lord for the gift of life. I have a colorful health history that is really quite the miracle and I know it is by the grace of God that I am alive at all.
I try to be Jesus to everyone wherever I go. My mission, as I see it, is to love everyone as God loves me. And that’s a whole lot. I have a lot of love to give and there are a lot of people out there. I hope this blog serves to bring a smile to someone’s face as they read my stories of life and love and hope.
God bless you. I hope you enjoy what I call Food for Thought!
