I am turning 60 in August, but I am NOT slowing down!

I am a principal of a large school for children of military members, mother, and grandmother to seven funny, smart and brilliant grandkids. Recently, my husband went home to Jesus, and I am adjusting to being a widow. I loved being a wife, and this has been hard on me.

I am a principal of a large school for children of military members, mother, and grandmother to seven funny, smart and brilliant grandkids. Recently, my husband went home to Jesus, and I am adjusting to being a widow. I loved being a wife, and this has been hard on me.

I love walking and biking all over Germany, and the surrounding countries. I love to travel, and am blessed to be able to do it at this season of my life. Another passion I have is baking for my co-workers and friends.

My God continues to be my source of strength, peace and everlasting joy. He is my gracious, redeemer, my friend and my enduring, wise counselor. Without Him I am nothing. He gives me purpose to my life. I am a SOLD out, unashamed conservative Christian called to work in a school setting.

I am excited about what God has planned for me, and thankful that He loves me so much.

Hi Sandy
I am just returning to SP and I read over a few of your blogs. Let me just say how sorry I am for your loss.
I just lost both my parents this year and have been dealing with grief, but I am ready to work on myself and my goals again.
Your journey is so encouraging to me.

A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.

When life gives you a thousand reasons to cry,
