I enjoy writing, research, travel, history, genealogy, reading and time with my family. This means I stay busy, and I have been on Hubpages for many years as I like the other Hubbers.
I have always had a multitude of hobbies, and I have a bachelors degree in nursing. I worked in several capacities as an RN for 24 years, but primarily in hospital management for much of my professional career.
I am happily married. I have three sons, one step-daughter and four grandchildren. Three have graduated from college, and two have a masters degree. I am proud of them all.
I was working on my master's degree when I became ill with systemic lupus, which ultimately ended my nursing career. Then, I started writring articles, which earn a good income.
I also like to spend my time doing genealogy research, reading historical novels, gardening, making stained glass art and traveling. I am active in several genealogy organizations, and I am a joyful Christian.
I enjoy writing on Hubpages, meeting new friends, and you will too if you sign up.
