About Me: Female, 61, Spring, TX, member since Nov 2008
I am a mother of 4 children and a grandmother of four beautiful grandsons! I moved to Texas from Iowa due to the 50 some years of frigid temputures of minus 30's wind chill in the 4-5 long months of winter. I remember even having to wear coats and blankets on the many f
[More]ourth of Julys in the few years before we moved. I have a wonderful family there consisting of a beautiful mom, sister and daughter still living there and I miss them sooo much. I'm am still very fortunate to have a wonderful and patient husband and a supportive son and daughter living here within a few blocks away from us. My son invited us to move here when he received a job in the Houston area almost three years ago, we have been residing with him and his life partner since. I babysit my three grandsons as I have since the first one , who is 7 now and have done so since the other 2 grandsons were born. My middle child lives in Arkansas with his new wife and my other grandson. I also miss them sooo much!!! We have had many ups and downs due to my husband was deemed partial permanent disibility since he for a factory in Iowa for 8 years. He has struggled with the pain in his arms for all these yrs. (8 yrs) He has to take part time work with no benefits in the retail field due to his condition. I babysit for my daughter as I can't get a job as I have GAD and panic disorder since 1996 and can't afford health insurance due to our conditions. It is hard some days to wonder if we'll ever get a break to live on our someday with all the housing conditions as they are in the US. Positive thinking and praying keeps me going, everday!!
