An introduction to me
My name is Lisa, I am 53 years old and have lived a great life... well at least a life that I am learning from. I am happy where I am at right now. This was not always the case. (Forewarning, I am not a writer nor did I ever plan to be.) This is my honest life story, if you resonate or like what I am posting please leave me a comment on my home page. I appreciate and welcome all comments.
Every day is a learning experience for everyone as long as you are willing to open your heart, eyes and mind to the experience we call life. This is a lesson I am learning now. I wish I would have learned this many years ago, but the important thing is that I am learning it! I have lived in several states and a couple of countries but didn't REALLY appreciate it at the time. I was too caught up in the drama I thought was my life. I wish I could go back and be in that moment again and love where I was.
I was born and mostly raised in Colorado where the rest of my family lives. I left Colorado at the age of 21 with my new husband to live in Germany for 3 years as an Army wife. He was gone Tuesdays through Thursdays in “the field” practicing. In the last 6 months of our tour in Germany, he was called to Saudi Arabia for the Desert Storm conflict. I was alone in Germany with an 11-month-old baby. At that time there were no cell phones or computers and phone calls were expensive! So we spoke for 10 minutes once a week.
With the draw down of forces, my husband and I decided to leave the military life and moved back to Colorado where he became a truck driver. We moved to Arizona about a year later so he could become a manager of a trucking company. Long story short, we moved again to Ohio in 1998 and that is where our house is today.
That is a small part of my background, as time goes by there will be more. In these experiences, I have learned to REALLY be in the moment because small moments equal big memories.
So I leave you with this today, really be in every moment of your life because you never know when it will be a lesson needed to be learned. I hope you enjoy this blog, let me know. Thank you
