It's been a while since I've done something like this, and I thought it was time I updated some of my newer readers. So - here's a little bit of information about me!
My Dad was a farmer, so we grew up in the country. We had no close neighbors and played with each other. We had lots of area to play in, hills to sled on in the winter and a creek to catch frogs in the summer. Dad had cows and chickens, we had dogs and cats also and there was no time to be bored!
I can honestly say my parents were wonderful. There was never any question of their love for us. They passed on their Christian faith, both in word and deed. They taught us respect and how valuable work is. One of Dad's famous quotes is "A little work never hurt anyone"... Mom and Dad were married for 43 years when my Mom passed away.
I worked for 10 years at the hospital, before beginning to work at the nursing home that I still work at.
Shortly after starting at the hospital I met this nice guy! Bob and I got married when I was 21. We've been married for 32 years and he's still a good guy.
I'm a Christian. I believe in salvation through Christ's death on the cross. Bob and I are active in our church, Lighthouse Community Church and are so blessed to be a part of this fellowship.
We have 3 kids. Our daughter Laura is married to Aaron, they are Alaina's parents and are expecting another baby in October.
Our daughter Heather lives at home, but spends a lot of time with her boyfriend Andrew. We do enjoy it when she has a free night. :)
Our son Andrew was in the army for 6 years. He spent a year in Korea and a year in Afghanistan. He got out last year and now lives in Kentucky, where he works for Lockheed Martin on the Apache Helicoptor.
We live in Allendale, Michigan. Allendale is about15 minutes from the beaches of Lake Michigan and about 20 minutes from Grand Rapids. I think it's the perfect location (except when the winter is bad). :)
I think that's it for now!
