January 2011. Well, my life has changed a lot the past year. I have worked on keeping busy and spending lots of time with my family. My husband passed away 2 years ago now but I still miss him each and every day. People ask how I am doing. I think good but it is still very hard. I met him when I was 17 and we were married for 40 years.

2009-My life is broken up into 10 year milestones. When I turned 20, I graduated from nursing school and got married. When I turned 30, I went back to nursing after having 3 children. I didn't work for 8 of those years. When I turned 40, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Nursing and became a Certified Rehab Nurse. In my 40's, I battled breast cancer and had 5 operations and radiation treatments. I'm a survivor with lots of support from my husband and family. When I turned 50, I changed my career and set new goals for myself. I earned my Master's degree in Special Eduaction and started working with the Multiply Disabled in grades K-4th grade. I loved it and as I turn 60 in September, I am retiring as of Sunday, March 1, 2009. This is my new beginning.
