I am a Mother, Grandmother, Wife, and lover of beauty and life. I live in the high desert of Southern California, and have recently discovered that my own attitude is what affects my joy and quality of life. While the troubles and aches and pains are still there, I can look for the beauty and joy that is in life regardless. I’ve wasted many years in bitterness and depression, but I find that regret is a limited and limiting emotion. My life is now, and my life is what I make of it.
