I am Susan. Wife to the love of my life Michael and mommy of two beautiful children; Gary 9 and Michele 7. Been married for 10 beautiful years! I trust that only through Christ I have life. I believe there’s always rhythm(ups and downs) to all our lives that come in many forms. Mine are around our family. I enjoy documenting our family life as I share it along the way; My writing ranges from marriage as I know it, motherhood as I experience it, poetry, quotes of wisdom because I am a wisdom seeker, food just for the love of it and then health because I have been through a cancer journey that has left me with a story to tell. So hop on for the ride y’all!

    1. Thank you for popping overπŸ’ž. Yes cancer tends to leave a story to tell. It’s been 6 years since and the fact is it is hard to step back in that season of my life even though I would like to encourage those in it now. πŸ’ž

      1. Oh I know! I’m in a forum where people are going through what I went through, and while I agree that its hard to revisit such a harrowing time, its nice to be able to say to them “look, you can get through this, all is not lost” Just saying that without going into bleak detail is mostly enough for people who are newly ill. Keep on doing what you do – you write really well! πŸ™‚
