||I am a 53 year old mother of three sons, grandmother of one grandson. I met my husband at an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game, while we were both attending Northeast Louisiana University (now University of Louisiana - Monroe). My greatest joy is my family. I love performing service, I love to cook for those who are sick or feeling down. My husband is a professor of economics (I was an art ed. major - it's wonder we ever got together!), who is also an aspiring author and I assist in editing his work. I have arthritis and diabetes, some days I can only shuffle around, as my hips and knees don't want to cooperate - I use a cane most of the time and my boys call me "Dr. House" on my grumpy days. I am very blessed to have the love and laughter that I have in my life and my goal is to let my kids know how much I love them each and every day. I enjoy your show so very much because it shows humanity at it's best. The positive, upbeat vibe that you project is such a welcome change in a world of horrific news and the knowledge that we as a people are not very kind to one another.
