Hi, I’m Laurie…As most people say I never thought I’d be writing a blog post, but for me there is no time like the present. I am not an overly dramatic person and I do not share a lot about myself with strangers. But really we are all in this together, right? And if anything I have to share can help others that is why we are on this planet, to help others and be kind. Sounds pretty sappy I’m sure, but if we can’t be kind what else is there? My life is not full of exotic travels or dramatic tales, but I am very blessed and have some thoughts on living that I need to put down on paper…or type on the computer as it were.
I live in Southern California with my wonderful husband, Dave, and am still wondering to this day why he has stuck around all these years with all the craziness that has gone on in our lives..to which he replies…”I can’t wait to see what happens next.” We have 3 grown children, all scattered about and 3 dogs. (You will hear more about them in posts to come-the dogs and maybe a little about the kids.) I have worked at the same company for 35 years and am definitely ready for a new challenge, just not sure what yet. I do know that I have a lot of thoughts on life, love, family and friendship and I feel it is the time to start releasing them…embracing some that I will hold on to forever and moving on from others that continue to, at times, fill me with feelings of loss, pain and sadness.
Even if no one ever reads this I will feel better and able to move on with my life and be prepared for all that is to come…and definitely have some giggles along the way…xo
