I am an energetic, enthusiastic mother of one. My beautiful daughter, who is ten, is the light of my life. She lost her father and I lost my husband in October of 1999 to cancer. We live in eastern NC. I am a teacher who specializes in special needs children, preferably children that have emotional and/or behavioral needs. I have gone through many challenges in my life, tough challenges, but this truly was the best that could have happened as it taught me the true meaning of faith. Life is such an important gift. . enjoy it, LIVE it and LOVE it. . just make sure you're following Jesus while you're doing it!!Life is too short. . I can personally attest to this!
