Bio: In celebration of my turning another decade and our 40th wedding anniversary, I decided to bring my life long desire to write in some public form, to light. I am the mother of a son and daughter, who have both taught me to be a better daughter myself, and I am a better person for having them in my life. I am married to a farmer, the strong, silent type, who I met in 7th grade. He is the gee when I haw too far. I've worn many hats, the most recent being that of an RN. I help babies come into the world, and after 18 years in nursing, I am still amazed by that miracle. My favorite title is Aunt Trisha, as I am simply foolish over my nieces and nephews. I am in love with children's laughter, a bluebird in flight, and the aroma of a good cup of coffee. I've written poetry since elementary school and my Mama was my biggest fan. Because she believed in me, I dedicate this blog to her. Update: (July, 2016) I retired almost a year ago from my 20 years of nursing other than to continue as a lab adjunct for the School of Nursing at Murray State University. I am able to guide and encourage students through their obstetric clinical, hoping to instill in them the love and respect I had for that field of nursing. My plans were to begin writing with some regularity, but that flew out the window! When people told me I would wonder how I ever had time to work full time, they weren't kidding! But lately, I've been getting back into my writing groove. I still love my coffee break with my laptop, and when I remember that I was doing this for the fun of it, the words come freely. I hope to discipline myself to write with more purpose; under certain specifications for some type of literature. I've been praying that God will help me find the right brand to fill my little coffee cup.
