Oh my gosh!

It's finally here! 

I have searched for someone, anyone, a surrogate, DUMMIES, a talking gecko, a three-year old, anything to help me create a blog, and after what feels like a lot of wandering aimlessly in cyber-wilderness it is here!


40 years in the making...  well, at least in my mind.  That's how much older I feel anyway.

I know, it's so simple that even a caveman can do it but I couldn't find one of those either. 

Anyway, welcome to the journey of my UNEXPECTED LIFE!
Here are some of the things 
               I didn't expect:
1.    To be divorced
2.    To have 4 boys and only 1 girl
3.    To be a single parent
4.    To have an empty nest and still be alive and sane enough (sort of) to tell about it
5.    To have experienced so much heartache 
              - I didn't expect:
6.    To be able to shave both legs on the same day
7.    To not like peace and quiet because it's too quiet and peaceful
8.    To talk to animals-even when there's none around
9.    To be blogging
10.  To be here and alive today
               I didn't expect:
11.  To meet my father after 40 years
12.  To have the heartbreak of a 17 year old as a mature adult 
13.  To have so many wonderful friends
14.  To learn I could forgive, sometimes many times over (70 x 7 to the tenth power)
15.  To age sort of disgracefully (some parts) (many parts)
              I didn't expect:
16.  To feel loved and valued even though I am alone
17.  To  be picking up warm dog do-do
18.  To be so content and at peace (most days)
19.  To be able to share my life, and hope that maybe for someone, it'll make a difference
        AND I didn't expect
20.  To be SO blessed and to love who I am and who I am becoming!

                          HAPPILY EVER AFTER"
