First of all I am a Child of God and seek to serve Him daily in my life. I have been married to my husband for 32 years and have two amazing grown children, a Daughter in Love, a Son in Love and two beautiful grand daughters, who call me Mimsy. Love being a Mimsy!! I love to travel with my hubby, take walks, sit outside and enjoy the sunsets, read, digital painting, and of course photos and most importantly the stories that they tell.
