Since I was a child I have enjoyed making other people happy, whether by things as small as a smile or deeds done. If I can help others in some way everyday, I go to sleep at night content.
I graduated from Duxbury High School in 1981. In total I have attended 4 colleges throughout the years. My studies include: Paralegal, Early Childhood Education, Child Psychology, Art Therapy and Business.
I got married in 1989 and moved to Rhode Island. I was married for 13 years when my husband was diagnosed with Cancer. My husband passed away in 2001. My husband was taken Home at a young age, 41. He was a hard worker, great father, wonderful Son and Brother. Our Daughter was the love of our lives. I have One Beautiful Daughter, Victoria. Our lives forever changed in ways I never would have dreamt possible. I have been a widow now for 15 years. My daughter Victoria was 11 years old when he died. This changed my 11 year old daughter forever, she is now 26. I believe all the fragments of my daughter will be put back together. A Mother never gives up on their child.
For the past 15 years I have learned to network and receive knowledge to help myself and my daughter. You may ask, ‘why don’t You give up???? Does it continue to be difficult? ABSOLUTELY. I would answer, If the Struggle has been this tough, the Reward is Going to be Huge!!!!
In 2007 I became a grandmother. “Angelina” came into our lives. Victoria and Angelina’s father Jonathan are no longer together. Angelina now lives with Jonathan her wonderful Dad. He is an EXAMPLE to many young men. He did not run, He stayed. I admire him tremendously, his courage, his commitment and the fact that we now can Agree to Disagree. Also, the patience he has shown to ME..(Yes, God Bless You Jonathan)…His present girl, Cassie and her 3 children are my extended family. I Love Them All VERY MUCH.
Way to be Well, is a place where I put into words the trials and triumphs I experience. I will do my best to encourage You and guide You to find the answers You need. If I do not have the answer, I will do my best to help You get the answer. I will share all of the resources I have obtained with You.
