I'm a wife and mother, blessed with a wonderful family, and I live north of Atlanta, Georgia. I'm an avid reader and enjoy gardening, outdoor activites and thumbing through old cookbooks. My greatest joy comes from helping others, in whatever way I am guided to do so. Bigotry and narrowmindedness are my two pet peeves. We all have to live together on this small planet, better we do it with love, tolerance and compassion and try to make it fun. If I had a month off (and the money to do it)I would hit the road and explore as much of this country as I could fit in the time available.
